The Electra Glide® Classic™ is as comfortable traversing long winding mountain passes as it is maneuvering through city traffic. A 40-watt-per channel sound system with AM/FM cassette is located in the fairing. Additional features include a redesigned seat, electronic speedometer, new hollow spoke-cast alloy wheels, and a King Tour Pak with enough storage for two full-faced helmets. The Electra Glide® Classic™ is available in both carbureted and electronic fuel-injected versions. (These models are not available in all countries.)

Combining inimitable Harley-Davidson cruiser styling with a premium tourer equipment package, the Electra Glide has long been Harley's flagship touring machine. From the fork-mounted fairing through the well-padded seat and large hard luggage system, it is built for two-up distance comfort. Extensive touring equipment such as a built-in stereo radio/cassette system, CB radio and intercom, and electronic cruise control make long journeys easier.

The latest model uses a Twin Cam 88 engine, with twin camshafts operating overhead valves via pushrods, and electronic fuel-injection. Like all Harley cruisers, the Glide has strong low-down grunt, with rather weak top end power.
