2023 Street Glide vs. Road Glide Engine Specs & Powertrain

The same Milwaukee-Eight® 107 engine rumbles and roars on the 2023 Harley-Davidson Street Glide and Road Glide.

2023 Street Glide vs. Road Glide Safety & Technology

A long list of identical rider safety enhancements to help you stop and handle your motorcycle with greater confidence is available on both the 2023 Harley-Davidson Street Glide and Road Glide with the Reflex™ Defensive Rider System (RDRS). Among standard features, the headlamp is a notable difference — the Road Glide features a stunning dual DayMaker® LED headlamp with 1,060-lumen low beam and 1,560-lumen high beam, while the Street Glide features a dual halogen headlight with a 625-lumen low beam and 1,570-lumen high beam. Dual front brakes on both motorcycles provide excellent stopping power and an anti-lock braking system (ABS) is available.

Optional rider safety enhancements for both motorcycles include:

  • Electronic linked braking
  • Vehicle hold control
  • Tire pressure monitoring system
  • Cornering enhanced anti-lock brake system
  • Cornering-enhanced electronic linked braking
  • Cornering enhanced traction control system

The infotainment system on the Road Glide and Street Glide is identical — a Boom!™ Box 4.3 system with AM, FM, and weather band radio, Bluetooth® wireless phone connectivity, and an SD card reader, flash drive support, and MP3 capability through the USB port. The system is designed for easy use and durable quality. Two 5.25-inch speakers bring the noise wherever you go. The layout of the analog gauges in relation to the infotainment screen is different — on the Street Glide, your gauges sit across the top of the screen, while you get two gauges below the screen and one on either side with the Road Glide.

2023 Street Glide vs. Road Glide Dimensions

One of the primary size differences between the 2023 Street Glide and Road Glide is weight. In running order, the Road Glide is just over 25 pounds heavier than the Street Glide. Their fairings are another notable difference, and your choice between the two models will depend on your preferences. The Street Glide shields you behind a fork-mounted batwing fairing, while the Road Glide cuts through the wind with a frame-mounted sharknose fairing. Both Grand American Touring bikes keep you in an upright riding position with floor boards for your feet and a pillion pad for your back warmer. Spacious saddlebags with identical luggage capacity provide secure storage for whatever you need to bring along on your next ride.

2022 Harley-Davidson Street Glide vs. Road Glide Summary

The Harley-Davidson Street Glide and Harley-Davidson Road Glide are both powerful touring bikes. They share the Milwaukee-Eight® 107 engine, which provides a pavement-scorching 111 pound-feet of torque. They also both offer the Boom!™ Box 4.3 twin-speaker sound system, smartphone integration, standard anti-lock brakes, and the optional Reflex™ Defensive Rider System (RDRS).

The main difference between the H-D Street Glide and Road Glide is the fairing. The Street Glide has a batwing fairing, a classic Harley-Davidson design, mounted to the forks. The Road Glide, on the other hand, has a sharknose fairing that’s frame-mounted, and the handlebars and forks turn within the frame. Is one of these better than the other? No — but they’re undoubtedly different, and most riders prefer one or the other. The Street Glide with its fork-mounted fairing is a more traditional and intuitive layout, while the aerodynamic fairing of the Road Glide transfers wind buffeting forces to the frame rather than the handlebars, reducing rider fatigue.

Echoing the architecture of the Street Glide and Road Glide, but with added west coast-inspired styling, the ST models come with the uprated Milwaukee-Eight 117 V-Twin engine for pavement-scorching power and speed.

2022 Harley-Davidson Street Glide vs. Road Glide Dimensions
