2017 Harley-Davidson Road Glide Buyer's Guide | Specs & Price

The base Harley-Davidson Road Glide is hardly a stripped down model, though it does make for a exceptional blank canvas for the ride interested in customization.

The Milwaukee-Eight 107 engine is new this year, as are the emulsion shocks and Showa Dual Bending Valve forks. Still air-cooled, the Road Glide’s motor also benefits from oil cooling, and the exhaust system has been updated to keep heat away from the passenger.

There’s a Boom! Box 4.3 audio system, Brembo brake calipers, and the One-Touch saddlebags will please in-town and long-distance touring riders. Optional upgrades include the Boom! Box 6.5 GT audio system (with GPS and touchscreen), linked brakes with ABS, and the Smart Security System.
