The Tour-Pak system is One-Touch, making it easy to access whatever has been stowed away.
To help the miles pass quickly, the Ultra Limited has a Boom! Box 6.5 GT audio system (with GPS and touchscreen), with heated handgrips and cruise control standard. Two fog lamps bracket the Daymaker LED headlight, and the Reflex Linked Brembo brakes have ABS as standard equipment.
