2021 Harley-Davidson® Road Glide® Limited near Manchester NH
The 2021 Harley-Davidson® Road Glide® Limited is now available at Twin States Harley-Davidson®, your local H-D dealership serving Lebanon Swanzey Meredith Manchester and the surrounding areas. The Road Glide® is one of the most recognizable and popular touring motorcycles in the Harley-Davidson® lineup, and it is offered in two premium editions: Road Glide® Limited and Road Glide® Special. In the sections to follow, we will discuss what makes the Road Glide® a compelling option, why you may want a premium variant over the standard model and what differentiates the Limited from the Special.
Introducing the Road Glide®
The Road Glide® models available at our location serving Lebanon Swanzey Meredith Manchester seek to strike a balance between classic Harley-Davidson® tradition and modern touring sophistication. The Road Glide® is distinguished from the Street Glide—another popular H-D tourer—in that it has a shark-nosed fairing mounted to the frame. The forks move independent of the mounting, and this design decision not only changes the aesthetics by the rider triangle and handling dynamics. Newer riders who are unsure of their preference should test ride both the Road Glide® and Street Glide to compare them.
The Premium Editions
As mentioned in the opener, in addition to the base Road Glide®, Harley-Davidson® offers two premium variants, and both the Limited and Special share some characteristics in common. The most notable of these is the more powerful Milwaukee-Eight 114 V-Twin engine as opposed to the Milwaukee-Eight 107 V-Twin that comes standard with the base model. The Limited and Special are both available with either chrome or black accents, but note that the color selection does vary between the two models.
The Road Glide® Special
The 2021 Harley-Davidson® Road Glide® Limited near Manchester is designed to deliver an ultimate touring experience for the rider who rides for long periods and often has a passenger on board. The default windscreen is a bit taller than with the Limited. A king touring pack that can hold two helmets is included, and the passenger seat features a backrest. The Special is available in eight designs overall. Vivid Black with chrome is standard. You can also opt for chrome with Midnight Crimson, Snake Venom or the two-tone Vivid Black with Gauntlet Gray Metallic. If you prefer the black finish, single-tone color options include Vivid Black and Gauntlet Gray Metallic, and two-tone color options include Black Denim with River Rock Gray and Vivid Black with Gauntlet Gray Metallic.
The Road Glide® Limited Is Right for You If…
If you want a motorcycle built on the Harley-Davidson® touring platform and with the fixed shark-nosed fairing, then the Road Glide® is a great starting point. Both of the premium models are popular because they have the bigger engine, and while that does not make a major difference while cruising, it does give extra oomph when passing other vehicles and entering a highway. The premium models also come with the stretched saddlebags and the upgraded infotainment system with the larger touchscreen. The 2021 Harley-Davidson® Road Glide® Limited near Manchester, in particular, is ideal if you plan to travel for long periods. The king touring pack adds a great deal of convenience, and the backrest adds a great deal of ride comfort.
The Milwaukee-Eight 114 provides about 10 percent more horsepower and torque than the Milwaukee-Eight 107. As mentioned, this is not a significant difference at the lower end of the power band, but you will feel it higher in the range. Another point that often goes overlooked is the upgrade potential. The Milwaukee-Eight 107 can only be upgraded to the performance level of the 114.
Reflex Defensive Rider Systems
The base model and both variants give you the option of RDRS. This is a suite of rider-assistance technologies that engage automatically when accelerating and cornering in order to optimize traction. RDRS can make the most significant difference when road conditions poor, but it affects the overall riding experience as well. We recommend test riding a bike with RDRS to experience it.
