They call it the “Ultra” for a reason.

The Ultra Classic® Electra Glide® sets the standard for long-haul touring comfort and convenience. Though many imitators sought to duplicate it, the Ultra Classic Electra Glide stands tall as a benchmark for touring enthusiasts. A fourspeaker, 80-watt Harmon/Kardon® Advanced Audio System, one-piece, two-up Electra Glide® Classic comfort stitch seat with passenger backrest, adjustable fairing-mounted air deflectors, vented removable fairing lowers with integral glove boxes, spacious Tour-Pak® carrier and injection-molded hard saddlebags, and standard electronic cruise control, all combine comfort and function as styling touches that make it a Harley-Davidson.

Touring Models: The Legend Rolls On

All eight Harley-Davidson® Touring models are powered by a Twin Cam 103TM engine with Automatic Compression Release and an integrated oil cooler. Producing 102 ft. lbs. of peak torque at 3500 rpm, the Twin Cam 103TM engine provides an outstanding performance around town and on the open road. All Touring models also feature the 6-Speed Cruise DriveTM transmission, 41.3 mm telescopic front forks, air-adjustable rear shocks and Isolated Drive System for smooth power delivery. The Harley-Davidson® Touring chassis has a single-spar, rigid-backbone frame and two-piece swingarm designed to deliver responsive manoeuvrability and long-haul durability. Chassis geometry and suspension are calibrated to deliver confident handling and comfort.

All Touring models except the Ultra Limited will offer a new "tubeless" Chrome Lace Aluminium Wheel option for ease of tire replacement and repair. Six new colours or colour combinations are among the 12 paint options offered within the 2012 Touring model line.
