The Road King is Harley's interpretation of a touring machine. Fully equipped with hard pannier luggage, and a large detachable clear windshield upfront, this is a machine for long-distance cruising. Powered by the latest version of the firm's big twin motor, the Twin Cam 88, the 1449cc engine is fed by a 40mm (1.6in) CV carburettor, and exhausts its distinctive off-beat sound through crossover dual exhaust pipes. The chassis is typical Harley - solid, heavy and stable. Triple disc brakes provide decent stopping power, while the air-adjustable rear suspension allows the rider to adjust the ride for a passenger or full luggage load. It has dazzling chrome plate, fork shrouds and low-slung styling.
