Harley-Davidson Road Glide Special Milwaukee-Eight® 114 V-Twin Engine

There’s nothing that stirs the blood quite like the roar of a Harley Big Twin at full throttle. The Milwaukee-Eight 114 of the 2022 Road Glide Special is a more powerful engine than that found on the standard Road Glide, boasting 97 horsepower and 118 pound-feet of torque for thrilling acceleration throughout a wide speed range, especially at the low end. This V-twin hearkens back to a long line of air-cooled Harley power plants, but boasts improved throttle response, rubber mounts for smoother operation, and oil-and-air twin-cooled design for higher performance

Harley-Davidson Road Glide Special Reflex™ Linked Brembo® Brakes With Standard ABS

When you’re determined not to let snow, ice, or wet pavement keep you off the highway, you can rely on the Reflex™ Defensive Rider System (RDRS) available on the 2022 H-D Road Glide Special. This innovative system gives you more control over uneven or slick surfaces by combining several safety features. Electronic linked braking coordinates braking pressure between the Brembo® front and rear brakes; the anti-lock braking system (ABS) prevents your wheels from locking up; and the slip control system prevents your rear wheel from slipping during deceleration.

Harley-Davidson Road Glide Special Boom!™ Box GTS Infotainment System

The 2022 Harley-Davidson Road Glide Special comes standard with the cutting-edge Boom!™ Box GTS infotainment system. With four 5.25-inch speakers to provide a rousing soundtrack to every ride, the GTS is built to help you make those long trips your own. Features include:

  • Easy-to-use 6.5-in. full-color touchscreen display
  • Corning® Gorilla Glass® touchscreen surface
  • Smartphone integration
  • Built-in navigation
  • Bluetooth® wireless connectivity

Harley-Davidson Road Glide Special Frame-Mounted Shark Nose Fairing

The sharknose fairing on the Road Glide Special is mounted to the bike’s frame rather than its forks. The handlebars turn separately from the fairing, while wind forces are transferred from the fairing to the frame of the motorcycle instead of to the handlebars. This makes the bike seem lighter and quicker to maneuver through turns, and at higher speeds or in windy conditions it can make riding the Road Glide Special less taxing.
