2017 Harley-Davidson Road King

2017 Harley-Davidson Road King priceAn undisputed classic tourer, the 2017 Harley-Davidson Road King gets a brand new engine this year—the impressive Milwaukee-Eight 107.

The windshielded bagger also gets updated suspension—Showa Dual Bending Valve forks, plus emulsion shocks that have no-tools spring-preload adjustment.

Passengers will be happy to know that by rerouting the exhaust and repositioning the catalytic converts, that the Road King won’t roast the rider on the back. The One-Touch hard bags use the ignition key for access, and the headlight is a dual-halogen design.

If you’re cruising around town, the windshield is quickly detachable. Options include Reflex Linked Brembo Brakes with ABS and the Smart Security System, and there are three new high-end color choices—Black Hills Gold/Black Quartz, Laguna Orange, and Hard Candy Hot Rod Red Flake.
