Harley-Davidson® Road King®
When it comes to iconic Harley-Davidson® baggers, you do not get more authentic than the Road King®. This model is in discussion for the best bike in the H-D® lineup. It is popular not just in the U.S. but in many other parts of the world. It has a 1960s-inpsired aesthetic viewed through a modern lens. It is designed for riders who intend to travel long distances and to ride for long periods at a time. No matter how long you ride or how hard you push it, the Road King® remains comfortable. In addition to comfort, design emphasis includes control and versatility. This is a stripped-down bagger. Harley-Davidson® supports it with an extensive catalogue that is refreshed each season, and that gives you a lot of options when it comes to customizing your Road King® based on your riding style and aesthetic preferences.
Updates for the 2022 Road King®
All of the Grand American Touring models in the first wave are popular and critically acclaimed bikes. These are not motorcycles that require many updates. The Road King® does feature new, more sophisticated Brembo brakes, which is a change H-D® is making across the platform. These brakes adjust the balance between the front and rear on the fly. It is worth noting that the Road King® Special arrives alongside the standard model. Outside of the new brakes, there are not really any changes to note in either case. The main differences are the Road King® has the Milwaukee-Eight® 107 V-Twin engine and a chrome aesthetic whereas the Special has the 114 engine and a blacked-out aesthetic.
The Milwaukee-Eight® 107 V-Twin is a proven and powerful engine that is known for its iconic rumble, crisp throttle response and smooth running. It delivers ample performance for most riders, and you will never feel like your bike is lacking when hitting an on-ramp or passing another vehicle on the highway. Nevertheless, if you are an enthusiast who wants as much performance as is available, then the Special variant is an intriguing option. It comes with the Milwaukee-Eight® 114 V-Twin engine, which not only provides more performance off the factory line but gives you more headroom if you opt to upgrade. In either case, you have the option of the Reflex Defensive Rider Systems, and it is important to note that that you have to make this choice at the time of purchase since it is a factory-installed option.
