The Road King® Special commands the road with power like you've never seen. It's lighter thanks to a stripped down design, but what gives this bike its vicious roar is the all-new Milwaukee-Eight engine which develops 10% more horsepower than its predecessors. It's unique eight-valve engine head provides precise control so this motor creates the most power in the most fuel efficient way possible. A 6-Speed Cruise Drive® Transmission makes sure all that power gets to the pavement while Reflex™ linked Brembo® brakes keep everything in check. ABS comes standard on the Road King® Special.
The Road King® Special really breaks away from previous models with its unique, custom-bagger design. All unnecessary pieces have been stripped off, and what's left is a lean, mean, road-killing machine. This bike comes in four different colors, including Olive Gold, Vivid Black, Charcoal Denim, and Hot Rod Red Flake Hard Candy Custom. Mini-ape hanger handlebars give a nostalgic touch, as does the color-matched wrapped front fender. A seven inch Daymaker Projector LED headlight keeps the road lit ahead of you. Just about every component on this bike is finished in black, including the glossy turbine wheels and the heavy-duty front forks. Color-matched saddlebags feature a new, easy-open, one-touch design that works even with gloved hands, and the low-profile seat in combination with the lower seat height gives the bike an aggressive slammed stance.
As one of the most comfortable bikes you'll find, the Road King® Special is an easy rider. Many different elements that contribute to the style also have an element of ergonomics, too. For example, the mini-ape hanger handlebars give the rider an upright posture without over-extending the arms, which can cause shoulder fatigue. The low-profile seat is ergonomically designed and incredibly comfortable, even on the longest trips. Thanks to the Showa® Dual Bending valve technology, the suspension is responsive and as comfortable as can be. You can even adjust the pre-load on the rear emulsion shock suspension to personalize that tension for your size and riding style. The Milwaukee-Eight™ engine is counterbalanced and rubber-mounted to reduce as much engine vibration as possible, a feature you'll be thankful for on long trips at highway speeds.
