The 2021 Harley-Davidson Road King Special is a Touring model that The Motor Company puts in a sub-category—Hot Rod Bagger. To earn that title, the Road King Special runs the big Milwaukee-Eight 114 V-twin and is slammed to the ground with just over two inches of rear-wheel suspension travel. New this year is a Daymaker LED headlight and low-slung engine guard.Colors are always an important consideration, and the 2021 Harley-Davidson Road King Special has three on offer. Vivid Black is the base color, with an MSRP of $22,999. At the top of the price range is the striking Snake Venom paint, which commands a $1000 premium. In between, you can go with the Sturgis-inspired Deadwood Green for $23,449.
