Redesigned Softail® Frame
As the newly instated member of the Softail line, the Sport Glide gets all the perks of being a Softail and then takes it to the next level. Softail motorcycles run on hidden monoshock rear suspension, which gives the rider clean lines and easier handling. Not to mention, they have amazing styling and exceptional performance. The Sport Glide then adds to this by giving a frame that's 34% stiffer and significantly lighter. You get more control, better response, and better maneuvering around hard, tight corners. And even though it's the lightweight of the Softails, high-performance suspension makes traveling with more cargo easier and smoother.
As promised, the Sport Glide comes with an all new engine, the Milwaukee-Eight® 107 engine. With over a century of engineering innovation and riding experience built into this machine, you'll get massive torque right from the get-go, leaving you plenty of opportunities to tear up the pavement. Plus, the Milwaukee-Eight 107 engine has faster 0-60 mph and 60-80 mph to help you rule the road. And don't worry about all that power resulting in a shaky, jerky bike. It's been completely counterbalanced to minimize vibration and stress on your body while still sounding off that Harley® growl. As a bonus, the Milwaukee-Eight 107 engine has been slimmed down to fit the slim Sport Glide, to maintain that sleek look.
The Sport Glide also comes fully equipped and ready to switch from cruiser to touring mode in no time. The bike's lightweight makes it perfect for casual commuting, but it also makes touring more agile. It also features a mini-fairing to keep the winds off your body and help you be less exhausted at the end of the day. The low-vibration of the Milwaukee-Eight 107 engine helps keep your ride smooth and you relaxed for those long hauls. And additional luggage can be stored in hard-sided locking saddlebags that, because of superior suspension, won't ruin the quality of your ride. But if you need to drop a few items to make commuting easier, the saddlebags and the mini-fairing are removable. You'll be able to go anywhere you want on any given day with the Sport Glide.
Technology with Style
Finally, the Sport Glide features all the bells and whistles you deserve from a superior bike. You'll get some of the finest motorcycle technologies Harley-Davidson® has to offer, including the LED forward-lighting system and keyless ignition. To spruce up your ride, the Sport Glide also features popular styling techniques, like blacked out Milwaukee-Eight 107 engine, blacked out mufflers, and Mantis cast aluminum wheels. You'll ride the ultimate bike with the ultimate look.
