The FLHTCU Ultra Classic is a luxurious motorcycle fully-equipped with touring amenities. New for 2008 are adjustable fairing-mounted wind deflectors that allow the rider to direct ventilation to the seating areas for enhanced comfort. Electronic Cruise control, 80-watt Advanced Audio System by Harman/Kardon with passenger sound system, vented fairing lowers, luggage liners, and CB radio/intercom are all standard equipment.

NEW ON TOURING MODELS FOR 2008

New Brembo Brakes with available Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS): New high-performance Brembo brakes and a factory-installed ABS option are available on all 2008 Touring models. Incorporating the latest in braking technology, the new Harley-Davidson Brembo brakes offer consistent braking and stopping power under all operating conditions. Besides improved brake performance and feel, the Touring motorcycles retain their distinctive Harley-Davidson style. This world class braking system comes to the Touring line with proven capability directly from the VRSC line of performance custom motorcycles. The all-new ABS feature is designed to help the rider maintain control during emergency stopping situations, especially those that happen in less-than-ideal conditions. The components of the Harley-Davidson ABS have been designed and packaged to be virtually invisible, preserving the uncluttered styling of the area around the wheels. Unlike many motorcycle ABS, Harley-Davidson ABS is a manual, independent system, meaning the rider maintains control of how much of each brake is applied..

Larger Fuel Tank: Fuel capacity of all Touring models is increased by 20 percent, from five to six gallons. Combined with the 6-speed Cruise Drive transmission, the larger tank gives Touring models more range than ever before. The new tank also features new console styling with a new fuel range indicator, and also enabled the seat to be reshaped for more comfort.

Electronic Throttle Control: A new Electronic Throttle Control replaces mechanical cables on all Touring models. All wiring from the throttle-grip sensor is routed through the handlebars. The ETC enables the easy upgrade to a new cruise control system, and provides a clean custom look in the handlebar area.

Factory-Option Cruise Control: Available for all models that do not come equipped with cruise control as standard equipment, this new cruise control is offered at a lower price than the previous accessory cruise control system.

Isolated Drive System: Located in the rear sprocket, the Isolated Drive System improves ride quality under accelerations, shifting and cruising while reducing noise and vibration to the rider.

Adjustable Fairing-Mounted Wind Deflectors: The Ultra Classic Electra Glide model has standard adjustable fairing-mounted wind deflectors that improve ride comfort by allowing the rider to direct oncoming wind flow. The wind deflectors can be added to Electra Glide Standard, Street Glide and Electric Glide Classic models through Harley-Davidson Genuine Motor Accessories.

105th Anniversary Editions: A limited-edition, serialized 105th Anniversary FLHTCU Ultra Classic Electra Glide, FLHRC Road King Classic, FLTR Road Glide, and FLHX Street Glide will be available in 2008.
