Upgrades from the Standard Road Glide
Some of the main differences you will see and feel between the Harley-Davidson Road Glide Ultra and the standard Road Glide is the Ultra model's two-up touring saddle and Tour-Pak luggage carrier. The ultimate touring saddle for two offers a highly sculpted and supportive seat for both rider and passenger. Passengers will certainly appreciate the padded backrest and arm rests, covered in high-quality leather, just like the rest of the seat. Especially with so much power on tap, it is nice to know that passengers have plenty of support and a backrest when you take off in this stunning machine. There is even increased passenger seat space and leg room. The full-length footboards provide a comfortable ride; the height-adjustable passenger foot boards add another level of customized comfort. Also on the back of the 2017 Harley-Davidson Road Glide Ultra model is a Tour-Pak luggage carrier, which offers enough storage space for two full-face helmets! The one-touch latch is easy to use and the storage compartment locks to protect your valuables when parked.
Engine Performance of the 2017 Road Glide Ultra
The Road Glide series of bikes are highly capable, with the 2017 Road Glide Ultra model featuring a powerful engine and smooth transmission. Equipped with Harley's all-new Twin-Cooled Milwaukee-Eight 107 engine, producing an exceptional 113 ft-lb of torque at just 3,250 rpm, the new Road Glide Ultra has more than enough power for any adventure. The 107 cubic inch power plant is paired with a 6-speed Cruise Drive transmission, which is engineered to provide riders with smooth shifting whether passing highway traffic or climbing a mountain pass. Its 6-gallon fuel tank and estimated 43 miles per gallon fuel economy rating (combined city/highway) mean that this cruiser can go the distance before having to pull over for more gas.
Styling Features for the Road Glide Ultra
The aerodynamic and sleek style of the Road Glide Ultra begins with its distinctive shark nose fairing. The streamlined body of this bagger bike continues past its wind-cutting fairing and to the front fender and saddlebags at the rear. The touring bike's bullet turn signals add to the sporty, streamlined look. Up top, the classic fuel tank design is timeless -- and eye-catching -- with its range of available colors and stylish tank badges. Of course, with its black powder coated finish and chrome covers, the all-new Milwaukee-Eight 107 engine is a work of art in itself. The sporty, Enforcer cast aluminum wheels are striking from any angle, thanks to the high-contrast bright aluminum and blacked-out portions of the wheels.
Handling and Control
The most recognizable feature of the Road Glide Ultra is, of course, its shark nose fairing, wrapped around dual Daymaker reflector LED headlamps. The dual LED headlamps project crisp and powerful beams of light in front of you, which will feel like a major upgrade from other touring motorcycles. For added confidence and stability around the curves, Harley-Davidson has outfitted the new Road Glide Ultra with a beefy steering head and front forks. Delivering power to the pavement are Dunlop Multi-Tread blackwall tires, which offer excellent grip and durability. The optional Reflex Linked Brembo Brakes with ABS only add to the high level of control you will experience while riding this bike. With the electronically linked front and rear brakes, the precise amount of braking will be delivered to each wheel, no matter what the road condition is. The available ABS will make a locked-up front wheel or rear wheel skid a thing of the distant past.
