|Pure design. Unadulterated power. You can see it coming from a mile away. Big and dramatic like a locomotive rolling through a train yard at midnight. Blacked-out from its headlight nacelle front forks and new wheels to its powerful Milwaukee-Eight™ engine, headers and exhaust. With new mini-ape handlebars that pull you up and forward for an upright stance that commands attention. Stripped-down styling and stretched saddlebags for a slammed profile that’s right here, right now. When you take to the road on the new Road King® Special, you don’t just rule the road. You own it.|
|Blacked-out Nacelle, Steering Head and Front Forks: With its blacked out nacelle, the Road King Special looks like a freight train coming at you. Big and commanding. Boasting a darkness-defying 986 lumens that ensures you’ll have no trouble seeing everything out there that needs to be seen. So when you're out with your bagger buddies, you'll stay right at the front of the pack.|
|Blacked-out Milwaukee-Eight 107 Engine: Beneath the sinister dark looks of this touring motorcycle beats the heart of the Milwaukee-Eight 107 V-Twin. Next to the 114 ci, it’s the most powerful, coolest-running engine we’ve ever built. In a custom blacked-out finish. With a unique engine-turned air cleaner insert. Crisper throttle response and truer, cleaner sound. Four valves per cylinder, single chain-driven cam, dual spark plugs, counter-balanced and rubber mounted. It’s a whole new engine and a whole new ride.|
|Improved, Blacked-out, 6-Speed Cruise Drive® Transmission: You want a ride that rumbles — not begs for mercy — when you lean on it a little. The improved, blacked-out 6-Speed Cruise Drive Transmission provides smooth, quiet shifting and reduces engine speed on the highway, so you get a better match between engine turnover and road speed. And the Isolated Drive System makes acceleration flow in a smooth, steady stream from your wrist right down to the pavement. It's a rare ride when a bike responds like this, and a low growl goes a long way when you're opening up on the road ahead.|
|All-New Front Forks and Rear Suspension: The Road King Special model rides like a dream with an all-new front and rear suspension for more control and handling. New rear emulsion shocks adjust with the turn of a single knob for dialing in the perfect ride — no tools required. Plus new, bigger pistons for improved damping performance and new fork technology for an improved ride, especially over the harshest bumps, that reacts faster to keep the wheel planted for confident braking and handling.|
|Reflex™ Linked Brembo® Brakes with Anti-Locking Braking System: No doubt about it, there are times when you need to haul things down in a hurry. And you don’t get to pick those times. Or decide whether or not they occur when you’re on a flat, smooth, dry, perfect stretch of pavement. That’s why Reflex Linked Brembo Brakes with ABS are standard on the Road King Special model. ABS turns a locked-up front wheel or a rear wheel skid into a relic from riding’s history. And the front and rear brakes are electronically linked to provide exactly the right amount of brake to each tire no matter what the road condition is. No matter how good you are, this will make you a better rider.|
|1-Piece, 2-Up Seat: The ultimate touring saddle features a sculpted seat with a deeper contoured bucket and narrower neck, to relieve pressure on your thighs, while providing more back support and comfort for a wide variety of rider sizes. And the lower seat height — 26.4 inches to be exact — puts your feet closer to the road to enhance your confidence. Additionally, the leather trim and premium stitching accentuate the advanced ergonomics while giving the seat that sharp detail you only find on a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle. It's science in service of comfort, and your way to beat fatigue over the long haul.|
|Full-Length-Rider Footboards With Heel / Toe Shift Levers: Nothing provides a solid foundation for your ride like the full-length rider footboards with heel / toe shift levers on the Road King Special model. Give your left foot extra room with a heel toe shift lever, or try a folding heel shifter to remove the shift peg for highway driving. For utility and looks, Harley-Davidson foot controls put you in complete control.|
|One-Touch, Large-Capacity Drop Saddlebags: Here’s the rule we laid down for every compartment cover and saddlebag lid on our touring line: if it doesn’t open with the single touch of a button or one hand, while wearing gloves, it doesn’t go on the motorcycle. Because in all our conversations with riders, we've never encountered a single individual who wanted to have to put something on the ground before he could store it in a saddlebag.|
|1.25 Inch Mini-Ape Handlebars: You’ll sit taller, feel more assertive and ride more aggressively behind the new 9-in-tall, 1.25-inch wide mini-ape handlebars on the Road King Special. The blacked-out, stand-out look says custom all the way. Only you’ll know the handlebars are standard on this bike.|
|Blacked-Out Tank-Mounted Gauge: All the essential readouts you need — like RPMs and a gear indicator — on a blacked-out, tank-mounted gauge for a sleek, uncluttered look that goes the distance on style and function.|
|Blacked-Out Styling — Everywhere: This is one mean, lean touring machine — with end-to-end blacked-out styling from the aggressive turbine wheels to the tapered mufflers that will turn heads when you ride.|
|Blacked-Out Milwaukee-Eight 107 Engine: Beneath the sinister dark looks of this touring motorcycle beats the heart of the Milwaukee-Eight 107 V-Twin. Next to the 114 ci, it’s the most powerful, coolest-running engine we’ve ever built. In a custom blacked-out finish. With a unique engine-turned air cleaner insert. Crisper throttle response and truer, cleaner sound. Four valves per cylinder, single chain-driven cam, dual spark plugs, counter-balanced and rubber mounted. It’s a whole new engine and a whole new ride.|
|New Gloss Black Turbine Wheels: The Road King Special model rolls on custom, black Turbine wheels. With aggressive, modern styling that makes them look even bigger than they already are. Let your eyes take it all in — 19 inches of head-turning style in the front, 18 inches in the rear. Powerful blades extending all the way to the rim create an impact that’s eye-catchingly unique, but unmistakably Harley-Davidson.|
|Custom Rear Lighting and Low-Mounted License Plate Styles: We keep the look of the Road King Special stripped down and minimal with rear custom lighting and low-mounted license plate styles that feature little visible hardware, so nothing gets in the way of showing off the tight fender, stretched saddlebags and sleek, aggressive profile.|
|Blacked-Out, 2-1-2 Dual Exhaust With Tapered Mufflers: The strong symmetry and balance of our blacked-out 2-1-2 dual exhaust system is a perfect fit for the modern, aggressive profile of the Road King Special. With tapered mufflers for a sleek look and the full-throated roar that makes you know it’s a Harley-Davidson from miles away.|
