2023 Harley-Davidson Road Glide Special Anniversary Tourer Review

This limited edition model celebrates Harley-Davidson’s 120th anniversary with commemorative paint and finishes and premium amenities, elevating the already premium performance bagger with the works. The 2023 Harley-Davidson Road Glide Special Anniversary Tourer now comes in new two-tone color schemes, and buyers may choose from either a blacked-out or shiny chrome style treatment, giving them the option of going for a more modern or classic appearance. A redesigned, low-profile engine guard and the high-performance Ventilator air cleaner, both of which can be cleaned, are standard on all Special models today. This high-performance bagger looks threatening, rides smoothly, and is powered by a Milwaukee-Eight 114 engine. A way out, throw open the doors, and let the roaring engines and breathtaking views enter. A high-powered bagger that can be customized with a sleek black finish or flashy chrome accents.
