Harley-Davidson Road King Special – The Road King family grows. So, welcome to the new Special. A less elegant, but with more style.
The King of the Road is more alive than ever. The new Harley-Davidson Road King Special proves wearing an unmistakable American style. However, with details to enhance its shapes, the grandeur and the story behind his name. This is the new Harley-Davidson Road King Special, the Tourer par excellence of the Milwaukee’s brand.
Harley-Davidson Road King Special’s changes are aesthetic, but not only
The changes to the new Road King Special compared to the basic version are aesthetic, but not only. In addition to using the black on the entire sector gear and cycling, olive-green for the body (but there are also the colors black, red and gray) and an original handlebars mini-anger. In fact, the Harley-Davidson Road King Special sports a lower rear end. Thanks to a lower ground clearance and side cases that extend above the silencers, approaching so the style bagger.
New big twin Milwaukee-Eight 107
As for the entire range Touring, the new Road King Special mounts the new big twin Milwaukee-Eight 107 (1,750 cc) version. It has air cooling oil and takes advantage of the renewed suspension segment. The shock with adjustable spring preload hydraulic (pneumatic) dominate it.
The new engine is not a big evolution and it is not a revolution. This is only the ninth engine of the “big twin” family after 113 years of history. So, these engines will also equip the other “large” H-D ranges (Softail and Dyna). The new engines are available in three versions: Milwaukee-Eight 107 (1745 cm3) air and oil cooled (assembled by Special Street Glide, Road Glide, Road King, Road King Classic and Special Freewheeler), Twin-Cooled Milwaukee-Eight 107 (1745 cm3) with liquid-cooled heads (for Ultra Low, Road Glide Ultra Limited/Ultra Limited and Tri Glide Ultra) and Twin-Cooled Milwaukee 114-Eight (1870 cm3) with liquid-cooled heads (for Limited and CVO Street Glide CVO).
