Fresh, Modern Style

The Road King Special has fresh design for 2017 that channels some of the nostalgia of previous Road King Special models while updating the look with a blacked-out, slammed to the ground aesthetic that looks as fast as it does mean. There’s no windscreen on this bike, meaning there’s nothing standing between you and the landscape. The turbine-style wheels are finished in glossy black, while up top, a seven-inch Daymaker Projector LED headlight casts out 986 lumens of light on the road ahead. The mini-ape hanger handlebars give the rider an upright, authoritative riding posture. In the back, you’ll find easy-open saddlebags that can be opened with the touch of one finger, even if you’re wearing gloves. The bike comes in four colors, including Olive Gold, Vivid Black, Charcoal Denim, and Hot Rod Red Flake Hard Candy Custom.

Stunning Power

Cruisers like the Road King Special are all about the power, and this bike has it in spades. It all starts with the brand-new Milwaukee-Eight engine. With 107 cubic inches of cylinder placement, new exhaust, and new heads, this bike develops 10% more power than its predecessor. Paired with this absolute animal of an engine is a 6-Speed Cruise Drive® Transmission to provide quick, effortless shifts. The combo also produces awesome acceleration and insane top speed.

This bike is loaded with other performance-boosting parts, too. For example, the Reflex™ linked Brembo® brakes provide ultimate stopping power without the risk of wheel lock thanks to standard ABS. The suspension was redesigned to improve handling and make for a more comfortable ride.

Plenty of Comfort

A king should never be short on comfort. The Road King Special has several features designed to enhance rider comfort for long distance rides and highway touring. The seat is low profile, but still offers plenty of support. With the help of the mini-ape handlebars, it gives the rider better posture. The engine is counterbalanced and mounted with rubber to shut down as much vibration as possible. Footboards provide a more comfortable alternative to foot pegs, and the lower seat height allows you to comfortably plant your foot on the pavement when you pull up to the stop sign. The suspension uses Showa® Dual Bending valve technology. Up front, you’ll find beefy front forks, while the rear emulsion shock suspension can be dialed in to your comfort preference with just the turn of a knob.

Own Your Own Harley

When the time comes to take the throne, check out the Road King Special! Harley-Davidson® outdid themselves with this piece of fantastic design, from the nostalgic touches like the wrapped front fender and sleek saddlebags, to the more modern touches like the wheels and low-profile seat. This bike looks great from every angle and drives like a dream.
