Harley-Davidson Street Glide 2021 Touring Bike

Milwaukee-Eight 114 Power

An all-new Milwaukee-Eight 114 V-Twin engine, the most significant displacement and power supplied from the manufacturer for Harley-Davidson Touring model bikes, powers each Special model. The rubber-fixed and counterbalanced Milwaukee-Eight 114 engine gives thrilling performance and a traditional Harley-Davidson style, sound, and feel in the Touring chassis. 114 cubic inches (1,868 ccs), 10.5:1 compression ratio, 118 ft. lb. torque at 3250 RPM, four-valve cylinder heads, and improved airflow through the engine help to power production. Dual spark plugs improve power and efficiency and complete burning of the air/fuel charge.

Using a single camshaft eradicates mechanical noise, allowing a fuller exhaust tone to take center stage. An outstanding compression ratio is possible because of the advanced cylinder head design, twin knock sensors, and precise cooling, which allows for improved torque output and superior acceleration. The new V-Twin engine has a 45-degree cylinder angle to keep the original and authentic Harley-Davidson appearance, feel and sound. At highway speeds, the six-speed Cruise Drive gearbox decreases engine RPM to enhance fuel efficiency and passenger comfort. Improves airflow to the engine and adds performance style with an all-new Ventilator high-performance air cleaner with the brand new washable filter element.

Chassis

The Harley-Davidson’s frame is built to last, with a solid backbone to bear the weight of passengers and baggage, as well as modern engine power. Internal twin bending valve technology offers an ultimate linear damping performance and an exceptionally smooth ride in the front suspension. The new and highly advanced Emulsion technology rear shocks are tuned for touring and feature a single-knob pre-load adjustment that needs no tools or maintenance.

Unique variants have a banged posture because of the lower rear suspension. Unique models include Prodigy cast aluminum wheels of 19-inch in the front and 18-inch in the rear. Standard ReflexTM Linked Brembo Brakes with ABS help the rider retain control while braking in a straight line by stopping the wheels from locking. In an emergency, ABS works independently on the front and rear brakes to avoid uncontrollable wheel locks. RDRS Safety Enhancements – Optional RDRS Safety Enhancements – A set of technologies that adapt a motorcycle’s performance to the available traction during acceleration, braking, and deceleration. Linked braking, anti-lock brakes, traction control, drag-torque slip control, tire pressure monitoring system, and vehicle hold control are all included.

Engine

A robust, powerful yet smooth-running engine including a genuine, soul-satisfying rumbling and sharp throttle response.

Brakes with Standard ABS

They are designed to help the rider retain control while braking in a straight line by preventing the wheels from locking during braking. In an emergency, ABS works separately on the front and rear brakes to keep the wheels spinning and avoid uncontrollable wheel lock.

Responsive Suspension

High-performance front and rear suspension, as well as readily hand-adjustable rear shocks, provide you with complete control over a comfortable ride.

There’s a whole universe out there to discover. Since the 1960s, when we pioneered the fully outfitted touring bike, we’ve been making motorcycles to let you explore it in the most dramatic manner imaginable. In the saddle of a Harley-Davidson Touring bike, you may explore whole continents and all their mountain ranges, gorges, glaciers, tiny villages, deserts, cities, roadside attractions, experiences, and tales. No one does it better than you.
