2018 Harley-Davidson Road King®

/
THE TIMELESS CLASSIC BUILT FOR TODAY

This is where stripped down, nostalgic style meets the performance and versatility of a modern Harley-Davidson® touring machine.

Styling + Features

  • HIAWATHA HEADLAMP AND NACELLE: Born in the '60s, when chrome ruled the streets. Big and commanding, it's built with the latest in materials and technology for a longer distance high beam and wider low beam.
  • MILWAUKEE-EIGHT® V-TWIN ENGINE: A powerful, smooth-running engine with crisp throttle response and a pure, soul-satisfying rumble.
  • RESPONSIVE SUSPENSION: High-performing front and rear suspension, with easily hand-adjustable rear shocks, put you in control of a plush ride.
  • CAST ALUMINUM IMPELLER® WHEELS: A 17-inch cast aluminum, 10-spoke Impeller® wheel in the front, and a 16-inch Impeller® to match in the back.
  • ONE-TOUCH OPENING SADDLEBAGS: Tight on the outside, roomy on the inside. The hinges are simple and clean and the lids open with one touch of one hand.
  • REFLEX™ LINKED BREMBO® BRAKES WITH OPTIONAL ABS: The front and rear brakes are electronically linked to provide exactly the right amount of brake to each tire no matter the road condition. No matter how good you are, this will make you a better rider.
