Whether you like the look of it or not, you can't argue the fact that the fairing is a distinctive feature, but the 2008 Road Glide isn't all about looks! A black powder coated engine with chrome treatment and black nine-spoke cast aluminium wheels are new for 2008. Hard shell saddlebags, electronic cruise control, and an advanced audio system by Harman/Kardon are standard equipment. Dual covered headlamps, back-slash muffler tips, and a subdued 'slashing' graphic that runs across the fairing, tank & saddlebags all combine to create a rakish style that's sure to set the Road Glide up as an appealing touring machine. Hopefully, this one will come Down Under.

FLTR ROAD GLIDE. Although it's not currently scheduled for a 2008 Australian release, the FLTR Road Glide is a standout in the H-D Touring lineup thanks to its aerodynamic, "shark nose" frame-mounted fairing that not only deflects the wind, but also reduces weight on the fork & handlebars.
