Harley Targets Performance Riders With Custom Paint Sets

Harley Targets Performance Riders With Custom Paint Sets Harley does performance?

Related: 2020 Harley -Davidson LiveWire First Ride , This new Limited replaces the RG Ultra in the MoCo’s lineup (though an Ultra Limited is also available) and follows the fixed-fairing and shark-nosed Road Glide formula, adding premium finishes and some high-tech options.

The 2020 Road Glide Limited is the ultimate Grand American Touring machine with 114 cubic inches of power, new premium finishes, and loaded with features. You can build a Harley -Davidson® motorcycle unlike any other on the road . Endless possibilities.

When you're a major OEM it's a time-honored practice to engage in a little bit of product shuffling every now and again to keep the lineup looking fresh. Add some paint and accessories, call it a new model, and rotate out an older bike to placate the faithful. Everybody does it. The Motor Company's latest exercise involves the new Road Glide Limited, which is billed as a "premium luxury tourer" and makes its debut in Harley's Touring line for 2020.

Harley officially calls this color Zephyr Blue (with Black Finish) but a couple of us weren’t so sure…

It began with the Road Glide Ultra, another luxury long-hauler, which got booted from the Touring group this year in favor of the Limited, presumably because both bikes were very similarly configured, featured, and priced. In fact the only differences we could find between the two—and this is straight off the spec sheet—are wheel sizes, new paint and finishes, slightly taller handlebars with heated grips, and fresh badges on the new 2020 Limited. Harley says the fuel tank is “new” too, but we couldn’t really tell from a quick glance. Otherwise, you have the shark nose fairing with dual Daymaker LEDs carved into the front face and a Boom! Box GTS infotainment unit on the backside, the Milwaukee-Eight 114 Twin-Cooled engine, the Tour-Pak, the 13.5-inch shield—you know the drill.

Harley-Davidson LiveWire tech trickles down to other motorcycles

From a distance, the Limited is a dead doppelganger for the Ultra, and up close is no different, revealing the same 49mm fork with Showa Dual Bending Valve tech inside and a hand-adjustable rear monoshock that lets you dial in preload (it’s the Premium version, which nets you 3 inches of travel). But let’s talk about the differentiation: Customers get a wider variety of paint colors, finishes, and other options to choose from, and the 2020 Road Glide Limited rides on new wheels. You’ll see a pair of 18-inchers on the Limited whereas the Ultra rode on a 17-inch wheel up front with a 16-inch hoop locking down the rear. And whereas the Ultra wore Impeller wheels, the Limited gets the Slicer II style. Reflex Linked Brakes with ABS make a return as well on the standard Road Glide Limited model, but the good news is that you have the option to upgrade—all Harley Touring models (except the Electra Glide Standard) now offer an optional suite of electronic rider aids called RDRS. That’s something the Ultra never had and we can tell you straight up, it makes a world of difference.

Harley Announces New Bikes, Colors, And A Trike For 2020

Harley Announces New Bikes, Colors, And A Trike For 2020 All the new newness headed to your local showroom soon. Harley-Davidson just announced its 2020 model year lineup, and there are no major shakeups to report. Director Jason already told you his thoughts on the 2020 Harley-Davidson LiveWire, which is Harley’s first stab at an electric bike. While we all have our favorites, there are also four other new models headed to H-D showrooms across the land.

RDRS stands for Reflex Defensive Rider Systems and, in simple terms, constitutes a sophisticated electronics package designed to match the bike’s performance to available traction during acceleration, deceleration, and braking—even while cornering. It includes:

Cornering Enhanced ABS (C-ABS), which balances front and rear braking, even when leaned over; Cornering Enhanced Traction Control System (C-TCS), which is supposed to stop the rear wheel from spinning out under acceleration; Drag-Torque Slip Control System (DSCS) that’s meant to manage rear wheel slip and lock during engine-braking (upon deceleration on slippery roads); and Vehicle Hold Control (VHC), which you can engage to apply brake pressure to keep the bike from rolling, say, backward down a hill while stopped. A Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) is also part of the RDRS suite, but you can get it as a stand-alone accessory on select 2020 Touring models if you choose.

I have to say I am a Road Glide kind of guy. It is just the ride that I prefer. But I really like many bikes out there this is a great bike for travel.

The Road Glide Limited we whipped around San Diego County came equipped with the RDRS suite, a $995 option on Touring models but standard on all CVOs this year, and we can tell you it’s worth every penny, especially if you’re prone to getting in way too hot in corners (ahem) or expecting sketchy weather and even sketchier roads along your travels. It saved our bacon multiple times, the traction control coming in especially handy in the often-sandy twisties we tackled in San Diego’s high desert, and the cornering ABS and linked brakes… Let’s just say that heaving a 900-plus-pound motorcycle around a long run of sinuous roller coasters while constantly toggling between throttle and binders can be an eye-opening exercise even with the benefit of electronic rider aids. Straight-line ABS is one thing, but cornering ABS? In the V-twin touring cruiser world that’s tantamount to sorcery. Not that I’m complaining.

The third or fourth corner out of Julian is where it really hit home, on a decreasing-radius dirty left-hander, white-knuckling it with a bunch of other dunderheaded journos. No shoulder, the turn closing fast, leaned way over, too much throttle—all that was left to do was mash as much brake as I could muster. The RDRS adjusted, balanced, reapplied, and bailed me out, big time. Sandy spots with uneven surfaces tested the system again and again, but even if I was standing the big luxo-tourer up with all four fingers on the lever, the brakes—and the traction control too, frankly—never failed to give me a solid contact patch in those tight dirty esses (even if lever effort is a bit on the high side). Credit the incredibly clever Bosch six-axis IMU (inertial measurement unit) for sending all the right pitch, roll, and acceleration signals to the Limited’s ECU and keeping my keister out of the bushes.

a close up of a motorcycle: As it did in last year’s Road Glide Ultra, the Twin-Cooled 1,868cc Milwaukee-Eight 114 engine provides motivation to the new 2020 Road Glide Limited.

Here it’s seen in the Silver Pine/Spruce with a standard chrome finish.

But the RDRS is not standard equipment, and the foundational stuff we’ve come to take for granted needs a shout-out too; the M-8 114 engine is a dream in this chassis, feeling totally up to the task of pushing a 900-pound bike without breathing hard. The 122 pound-feet of torque is available right when you need it, and we needed it at every turn; 20-mph corners meant always having to crank the throttle upon exit and the 114 was never snappy, never pushy, just ready to roll on with authority. The pullback tiller-type bar was also right up my alley, allowing for a relaxed riding position and giving shorter pilots like this guy great leverage for back-roads hustling. A cushy, wide touring seat was comfy and supportive enough for at least a couple of hours, but that touring shield’s a nonstarter for riders under 5-foot-8—the top edge hits right through your line of sight, so looking through corners becomes a chore. A slight curvature just below the top also makes for a distorted view of the road, though your results may vary.

Elvis’s Harley Becomes The Third Most Expensive Bike In The World

Elvis’s Harley Becomes The Third Most Expensive Bike In The World We're all shook up: it go nowhere near $2M! The King was a well-known gearheard. Between the Cadillacs and the Harleys, he was probably the best “influencer” to ever endorse these brands. We recently had a look at Elvis’s 1976 Harley-Davidson FLH 1200 Electra Glide heading for the auction block, one of the countless pieces of his motorized collection. The motorcycle had been on display at the Pioneer Auto Museum for over thirty years before it was put up for auction at mid August. The bike has now found a new owner and took the third spot in the most expensive motorcycles ever sold ranking.

We loved the Harley -Davidson Road King and we are elated that its elder sibling, the Road Glide is on its way to our shores. What makes us so happy?

Here are Shumi's first impressions on the 2017 Harley -Davidson Road Glide and Roadster.

It was made clear to us that the other main feature of the new Road Glide Limited is the dizzying array of paint options, and that’s about right for this segment. It’s full-boat grand touring and, as equipped, the Limited is probably as close as you can come to a CVO in the main line.

The 2020 Road Glide Limited will ding you $28,299 to start, a tick pricier than last year’s Ultra, but the RDRS adds $995 to the total. It’s available now.

Speaking of CVOs, we kept swapping between the 117-equipped 2020 CVO Limited (seen last year as a mainline 2019 Touring model) and the 114-outfitted Limited, and to be perfectly honest, both bikes were amazingly composed and impressively competent for the winding roads we tackled. With either machine tipping the scales at well over 900 pounds, we didn’t even feel the added displacement of the 117 engine in the CVO that much, except for a slightly bigger punch (125 pound-feet of torque) out of low-speed corners. As with all CVOs for 2020, the CVO Limited comes with RDRS standard too, as well as the H-D Connect service, which links your bike to your phone (but was not enabled on our bike at the time).

There were a couple of other features we really dug on the CVO bike, namely the super-plush seat with rider back support that frankly made the Road Glide Limited’s saddle feel like a piano bench. The CVO Limited also rocked the Daymaker Adaptive LED Headlight, the most advanced such lighting offered by Harley at this time. Our ride was in the full light of day so we didn’t get to see the additional LED lights in the right environment; these lights sense lean angle and activate to throw illumination into corners you wouldn’t normally see with standard LEDs.

That was me, last week. In over a decade of riding, I had yet to sit in the saddle of a Harley. Not that the occasion never presented itself—for a few years, my dad became a proud owner when he bought a shiny new Electra Glide Ultra Classic. He became the guy who asked for Harley t-shirts and sweaters from every big city we visited. One day, I’ll tell you about an adventure in Barcelona, Spain, trying to get him that stupid t-shirt.

The CVOs are all about premium touches, tech, and finishes and the Limited has all that in spades, but underneath it all is also an excellent touring motorcycle. It is a pretty pricey one too: MSRP is $44,039.

Harley-Davidson Struggles To Find New Market With LiveWire .
The intended market hasn't shown up yet.So, it turns out that Harley-Davidson’s newest and greatest, the LiveWire, isn’t quite living up to its billing as a bike to draw in a new crowd of riders. A Reuters interview of 40 out of the 150 U.S dealers that carry the bike shows that more sales are coming from current Harley owners and older riders.
