Engine Features

The new Street Glide Special 2020 Harley-Davidson Touring Bike comes with a powerful Milwaukee-Eight 114 engine. It is characterized by the most displacement in standard H-D Touring models, and the rider can receive 114 cubic inches of passing and horizon-chasing power. The bore and store have been carefully set to ensure greater riding pleasure.

Chassis Features

The new Street Glide Special 2020 Touring Motorcycle comes with an attractive chassis. The overall styling of the motorcycle is mind-blowing, even better than the 2019 H-D Street Glide Special. The overall blacked-out styling adds to its appearance, i.e., from the front fork to the rear fender. It enhances the overall aggressive and modern appearance of the bike.

The Street Glide Special comes with the latest reflex with a linked Brembo braking system and standard ABS. It is designed primarily to help in preventing the wheels from locking under braking to allow the rider to maintain control during brakes. The ABS works independently on the front and rear to keep the wheels rolling plus it helps prevent uncontrolled wheel lock in urgent situations.

The 2020 Street Glide Special comes with black glossy front wheels of 19 inches and rear aluminum wheels of 18 inches to ride with style and attitude. The stretched saddlebags are designed to accentuate the long and low profile to custom and unique looks. The latest high-performing front and rear suspension come with an easily adjustable rear shock that puts the rider in control of a ride.

The latest Reflex Defensive rider system comes as an optional collection of technologies that helps the rider in controlling the less-than-ideal situations. This system uses advanced chassis control, electronic brake control and all-new powertrain technology that allows the rider to accelerate the braking in the straight line or corners.
