Astripped-down ver­sion of Har­ley’s big tourer is aimed at rid­ers who ap­pre­ci­ate the bag­ger look, the Street Glide Spe­cial has a ‘bat wing’ fair­ing, hard sad­dle­bags, air-ad­justable rear sus­pen­sion and disc brakes with ABS. It also fea­tures a mini wind de­flec­tor and dual halo­gen head­lights. Dom­i­nat­ing the dash cock­pit is a top-of-the-line 6.5 inch touch­screen in­fo­tain­ment sys­tem and BOOM!

Box 6.5 GT au­dio sys­tem – all mixed in ef­fort­lessly with large clas­sic ana­logue di­als.

An­other re­cent ad­di­tion is the ex­cel­lent Mil­wau­kee-eight 107 en­gine (the CVO ver­sion also comes with the 114 en­gine) – the most pow­er­ful and coolest-run­ning mo­tors Har­ley have ever built. Smoother, stronger and more durable, the 107 boasts a crisper throt­tle re­sponse from the four valves per cylin­der pow­er­plant.

Cru­cially, the han­dling has never been bet­ter, too. The all-new dual bend­ing valve fork and ad­justable emul­sion rear shocks do a great job of man­ag­ing the Glide’s 376kg, while the new Brembo brakes de­liver de­cent grunt. Try one, you might be pleas­antly sur­prised.

Dash blends both clas­sic and new tech
