2020 Harley-Davidson Road Glide Buyer’s Guide: Specs & Prices

Quickly identified by its proudly distinctive frame-mounted fairing, the 2020 Harley-Davidson Road Glide is a bagger that works as well in the city as it does on the open road. Cranking out 111 ft-lbs of torque at 3250 rpm, the Milwaukee-Eight 107 is barely fazed by the Road Glide’s 855-pound curb weight. The rider, too, will not be intimidated, as the seat height is a manageable 27.4 inches, the center of gravity is agreeably low, and the handlebars provide plenty of leverage.

The 19-inch Enforcer II wheel with the Dunlop Harley-Davidson rubber gives the 2020 Road Glide a stylish look for city riding. Regardless, it is still fully stable at speed on the highway—and the 107 powerplant won’t hesitate to push you into triple-digits confidently. The narrow front tire brings added agility in corners, should mountains be on your trip itinerary.

The bags are outstanding, with a one-touch release, and plenty of storage space for short-to-moderate trips, as well as moving cargo between work and home. The new optional Reflex Defensive Rider Systems brings more electronic rider aids to the Harley-Davidson Road Glide than ever before.
