2013 FLHX Street Glide
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. A
lower profile, smoked windscreen with a unique contour adds to the distinctive
look of the Street Glide® model.
We keep the back end clean and
no-nonsense with tri-line fender lights-a brilliant, unique taillight as the
centerpiece-plus ground effects and a low mounted license plate with LED
lighting for crisp visibility and style. This completes the custom,
If you crave long-haul agility on
rides of all distances, then you're going to love this. Starting on the 2010
Street Glide® model, we beefed things up a bit, 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.
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.
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.
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 line.
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.
