Classic Fuel Tank
Part of the unmistakable style of the Harley-Davidson® Electra Glide® Classic
motorcycle is plenty of room for showing off your paint. This classically
styled, bold six-gallon fuel tank doesn't just give you a bigger canvas for
premium or custom paint; it holds six gallons of go so you can eat up a lot more
road between pit stops. We know fuel economy is important—but so is style.
Sharp, eye-catching colors and premium waterslide graphics give this ride a
classic Glide look.
Designed by Chief Styling Officer Willie G. Davidson, the nimble, fork-mounted
Bat-Wing fairing first appeared on the touring scene back in 1969. And it
continues to evolve and symbolize the essence of Grand American Touring
motorcycles more than forty years later. The full 8-inch windscreen gives it
that classic touring profile and additional comfort. Simply put, the wind is not
a factor for the mile-hungry rider who wants to soak up the freedom of the open
road for days on end.
These injection-molded hard bags have room for 2.26 cu. ft. volume of long-haul
luxuries and a perfect surface for showing off some premium paint. Even better,
these saddlebags open from the top, so your gear won't end up spilled all over
the highway. They keep your fancy unmentionables dry, and the chrome latches
won't corrode in bad weather. Stunning chrome guards on the saddlebags are only
available on the Electra Glide® Classic and Ultra Classic® Electra Glide®. And
when you're off the road, one common key starts the bike and gives you access to
your saddlebags, keeping your pockets as uncluttered as your bike's classic
Large 17-Inch Front Wheel
If you crave long-haul agility on rides of all distances, then you're going to
love this. We beefed things up a bit by adding a big, mighty wheel with a low
aspect ratio. That means the bike maintains its legendary tight turning radius,
balanced feel and superior low-speed maneuverability.
Up to two times thicker than the competition, custom quality paint comes
standard on all Harley-Davidson® motorcycles. Clearcoat layering up to five mils
deep. Bigger metal flakes. Unique effects in the sunglo and pearl colors.
Skimping simply is not in our vocabulary.
Hand Finished Fuel Tank
All Harley-Davidson® fuel tanks are finished by hand—that's what makes them
stand out from the competition. Their seamless design and unmatched style are
unique among all motorcycles on the road. The tanks are one of the first and
last things people notice when they lay their eyes on a Harley-Davidson®
motorcycle—so we make it worth their time.
Twin Cam 103™ Engine Heritage
The knowledge of what makes an engine truly move a rider runs deep at The Motor
Company, and it was put to good use when we created the Twin Cam 103™ engine. We
painstakingly perfected every cubic inch, pushing design and technology
forward—all without compromising one bit of Harley-Davidson's unique styling.
Evolved, yet carrying on the legacy of the Flathead, Knucklehead, Panhead,
Shovelhead, Evolution®, Twin Cam 88® and Twin Cam 96™ engines that came before.
The performance and durability are a direct result of the untold miles logged on
the V-Twin since 1909, and the proud heritage that comes from a century's worth
of commitment to life on two wheels.
Twin Cam 103™ Engine Innovation
Fire up the Twin Cam 103™ engine and feel the low-end torque unleashed. Thanks
to the lightweight piston design, delivery of the added power is more refined
than ever. Then put your foot on the shifter and feel how the engine and
Six-Speed Cruise Drive® transmission were designed to work together. Six speeds.
A strong driveline and strong internal parts. Low routine maintenance. And a low
cruising rpm couldn't feel better.
Pure Harley-Davidson Styling
Feast your eyes on the Twin Cam 103™ engine and there's no mistaking its roots.
This is authentic Harley-Davidson style through and through with an attention to
detail you won't find from any other motorcycle company. Black powder-coated
heads and cylinders are highlighted by machined cooling fin tips and chrome
rocker covers. It's a jewel machined out of metal. Pure. Dripping with power.
From the classic edge of the cooling fins to the clean lines of cases and
covers—the Twin Cam 103™ engine makes an ironclad statement about holding on to
what's right and staying true to what satisfies.
Six-Speed Cruise Drive®
You want a ride that rumbles—not begs for mercy—when you lean on it a little.
The Six-Speed Cruise Drive® transmission provides smooth, quiet shifting and
reduces engine speed on the highway, so you get a better match between engine
turnover and road speed. And the Isolated Drive System makes acceleration flow
in a smooth, steady stream from your wrist right down to the pavement. It's a
rare ride when a bike responds like this, and a low growl goes a long way when
you're opening up the road ahead.
Four-Point Engine Isolation System
Just get that Big Twin idling and feel the difference—there's almost nothing to
feel. Our four-point rubber engine isolation system perfects the delicate
balance of shake, rattle and ride, keeping the powerful engine’s vibrations from
getting to you, for a smooth, comfortable ride mile after mile.
Twin Cam 103™ Engine Power
Live your ride to the power of 103. The air cooled Twin Cam 103™ Harley
Davidson® engine delivers more stump pulling torque, while its Electronic
Sequential Port Fuel Injection jetting gives crisp, lively throttle reaction.
It’s a performance punch that you’ll appreciate when passing, climbing hills, or
rolling with luggage packed or a passenger in back—all under that signature
Motor Company rumble. And it comes at lower cruising rpm, so you ride more
smoothly, with less engine vibration and better highway fuel economy.
Harman/Kardon® Advanced Audio System
Naturally, the king of the road gets some royal extras. The premium two-speaker,
20-watt per channel Harman/Kardon®audio system boasts great sound for booming
down the boulevard and highway, and, yeah, it might as well go to 11. It's loud,
proud and comes with AM/FM receiver and accommodates a CD or MP3 player. Riding
free just wouldn't be the same without the right soundtrack.
High Output Accessory Connector
Harley-Davidson® touring means maximum comfort in all conditions and the
capacity to add whatever enhances and personalizes your ride. The high output
charging system provides an electrical capacity robust enough for your add-ons:
heated vests, heated seats, heated handgrips, lights to showcase the engine, you
name it. So if you're hell-bent on two-wheeling it, we make sure you've got the
juice to do it your way.
Cruise Control (Optional)
If you're ready to take touring to the next level, the optional cruise feature
will help you settle in for the long haul. Get the comfort of the cruise without
the cables cluttering up your handlebar. Our electronic throttle control
technology makes it possible to have the best of both worlds.
Anti-Lock Brakes (Optional)
When it comes to the Electra Glide® Classic with optional ABS, "stopping power"
has a double meaning. The components of our ABS are tastefully hidden within the
wheel hub, so you'll still turn heads with a clean, streamlined design. More
importantly, though, you get certainty in the saddle knowing your bike's going
to behave when you need it. Offered as a part of the "Security Package" (which
includes the H-D® Smart Security System).
H-D® Smart Security System (Optional)
The factory installed next-generation security system features a hands-free fob
that automatically arms and disarms the vehicle electronic security functions as
you approach and walk away from the bike. Stick the fob on your ignition key
ring and let it do all the work. It's this attention to details and security
that make Harley-Davidson® motorcycles unique. Offered as a part of the
"Security Package" (which includes Anti-Lock Brakes).
Artfully Hidden Technology
Harley-Davidson leverages the latest in technology without compromising style
and function. That means we hide electronics. The whole wiring harness is
skillfully routed behind the jewels of the bike—the tank, engine and all the
other eye-popping features you want to see. It's just another way The Motor
Company goes the extra mile to give its bikes that premium, top-of-the-line fit
Hand controls on a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle are incredibly intuitive. The
turn signals are self-canceling and, based on the speed and angle of the
motorcycle, they know how long to stay on. Engaging the controls quickly becomes
second nature so you can focus less on turning off your signal and more on
basking in the freedom of the ride.
Dunlop® Multi-Tread™ Tires
The 180mm back tire is engineered to do more than fill out the rear fender and
put a bigger patch of rubber on the road. Dunlop® Multi-Tread™ technology uses
harder compounds at the center and softer on the sides for a tire that still
knows how to knuckle-down on corners. Perfect for making this bike agile on
every curvy stretch of road. And the way it feels going through an abrupt
off-camber turn will put a grin on your face that'll last to the next state
Confidence. Control. High-performance dual disc Brembo® brakes offer consistent
stopping power at all speeds. The 4-piston front and rear caliper with dual
front rotor brake system is state of the art and top of the line. It's just
another way The Motor Company puts a high level of detail into their bikes to
give you peace of mind throughout your journey.
With air-adjustable suspension that comes standard, you can dial in your ride to
accommodate heavier or lighter payloads, battle unexpected road conditions or
simply set it to how you like to roll. The lighter the load, the softer you can
go by decreasing the air pressure a bit, or increase the air pressure for a more
firm ride. A convenient air valve is located between the saddlebag and rear
fender for quick adjusting. It's all about rider and passenger comfort and
setting your bike to fit your taste—the easy way.
Frame and Swingarm
Change everything. Lose nothing. Our complete redesign of the frame and swingarm
has only been around since 2009, and it's already changing the game entirely.
Stamped and welded parts and bent tubing were ditched for strong castings and
forgings—just like the legendary Harley-Davidson frames of years past. The
result is a frame that rides rigid and owns the corners. The acceleration is
strong. The ride is tight and responsive. And the feel on the road is confidence
Legendary Low Speed Maneuverability
At The Motor Company, we believe you don't make innovative, next-generation
Touring motorcycles without shedding a little blood, sweat and tears. And when
you get it right—like with the low speed maneuverability on our Touring
models—all the other upgrades in the ride just combine to create a big-boned
bike that is light and nimble while carving up tight turns or if you find
yourself riding in a parade or group ride.
Tuned to Be Ridden
Harley-Davidson® motorcycles are different than any other bike out on the road.
There's a balance to them. The steering, the maneuverability—it's all in
concert. And each Harley-Davidson® model is tuned differently to create a unique
riding experience for each individual no matter which bike they swing their leg
over. Let's face it, we didn't get to where we are by being like everyone else.
8-Inch Ultra Windscreen
Beyond the Grand American Touring appearance of this windshield, an 8-inch wind
splitter is all it takes to keep the wind from getting in the way of you and
your ride. Get clear visibility without buffeting, and bit more comfort when the
wind really wants to throw you around. Yet another detail that makes our Electra
Glide® models the best in class for Touring comfort with long-distance
Two-Up Seating with Passenger Backrest
Keeping with the nostalgic style is the sculpted seat that features a deep,
contoured bucket and narrow neck. This ultimate Touring saddle relieves pressure
on your thighs, while providing more back support and comfort for a wide variety
of rider sizes. And the lower seat height puts your feet closer to the road to
enhance your confidence. In back, a passenger backrest is integrated into the
Tour-Pak® lid with wrap-around armrests to add to your riding partner's comfort.
It's science in service of comfort, and your way to beat fatigue over the long
Your boots were made for riding, in any way you see fit. Our full-length
footboards boast a tried and true design that's stood the test of time. Rubber
vibration isolation for a comfortable ride. Traditional toe shifting is familiar
to seasoned riders and intuitive for those just starting out. Heel shifting
makes getting through the gears even easier and more convenient. It takes a few
rides, but once you've gotten used to the smooth shifting rhythm, you'll never
give it up. Plus, height adjustable passenger boards add another level of
comfort for your riding partner.
Wide Set Handlebar
Classic style and maximum comfort. That's the perfect balance of the wide set
handlebars that come standard on the Electra Glide® Classic model. They're
designed to keep you comfortably propped in a commanding position while making
sure your neck muscles stay calm and relaxed mile after mile, state after state.
Durable stainless steel insures the structural rigidity you expect from a
Harley-Davidson® motorcycle with the deep, lustrous finish you desire.
Welcome to the crossroads of pure Harley-Davidson style and smart engineering.
The 2-1-2 exhaust helps direct heat away from the rider and passenger, while
providing ample performance, and signature Harley-Davidson rumble, and big
Engine Idle Temperature Management Strategy
Our motorcycles are built to be ridden. A lot. So that means that rider comfort
is top of mind. Always. With the Engine Idle Temperature Management Strategy (EITMS)
feature, the motorcycle automatically cuts fuel and fire from the rear cylinder
when idling, which helps reduce engine heat felt by rider and passenger. Best
part, you can easily turn this feature on or off yourself whenever the bike is
Seat Engineering and Design
The seat is home for Harley-Davidson® motorcycle riders. They want a seat that
has unique style without sacrificing comfort. Because of that, Harley-Davidson
invests a lot of time in researching, designing and testing seats so that every
bike has just the right saddle.
