The 2021 Harley-Davidson® Street Glide® Special has arrived and is now available to test ride and purchase at Twin States Harley-Davidson®. We are the leading Harley-Davidson® dealership serving Lebanon Swanzey Meredith Manchester and are thrilled with the new Street Glide® Special. The Street Glide® continues to be one of the most popular touring motorcycles in the H-D® lineup, and many riders opt for the premium Special variant because it includes the bigger engine and many of the more popular Street Glide® options. One of the more notable changes for the new model year is that the Special is no longer restricted to the black finish, which will put a smile on the face of anyone who prefers the classic look.
Updates for the 2021 Street Glide® Special
The Special name has generally been associated with a blacked-out finish, which is the modern trend. However, many riders prefer the classic chrome aesthetic. Another notable change with the 2021 Harley-Davidson® Street Glide® Special near Manchester is the redesigned center console. It is much more modern and minimalistic and draws inspiration from the CVO models. Finally, Harley-Davidson® has ditched the old projector headlamp and replaced with an LED Daymaker.
Street Glide® Special
The Street Glide® has been a top-seller in the H-D® lineup for over 15 years now. What makes it a compelling option is that it was designed based on how the modern touring scene were customizing their motorcycles, and that appeal has held up. The Street Glide® is often contrasted against the Road Glide, and the most notable difference is that the Street Glide® has a batwing fairing that is fork mounted.
The 2021 Harley-Davidson® Street Glide® Special builds on the base package by upgrading the Milwaukee-Eight 107 V-Twin engine to the 114. The Special can come chrome like the base Street Glide®, but it also available with a black-anodized finish direct from the factory. The Special also now gets the LED Daymaker headlamp, which provides serious light that makes a substantial difference on unlit roads.
The Street Glide® Special Is Right for You If…
The 2021 Harley-Davidson® Street Glide® Special near Manchester is versatile. You can commute with it and use it to run errands around town, but it also holds up if you want to ride several hundred miles this weekend. It boasts a slammed and custom aesthetic, which still manages to look old school if you go with the chrome or can appear more modern with the black finish. But the top reason to opt for the Special is the 114, which provides added performance you will be glad to have when you need it.
What is the performance difference between the Street Glide® Special and base Street Glide®? The difference is about 10 percent—or eight more horsepower and 10 more pound-feet of torque. While the performance difference many not be marked while cruising, it is exhilarating when taking on twisties, entering a highway or overtaking another vehicle. Another point to consider is that the 114 provides you more upgrade potential than the 107. In fact, all upgrade kits for the 107 are based on the 114.
The Reflex Defensive Driver Systems are the most notable option that you have with the Special. RDRS is a collection of automatic rider-assistance tech that helps you maintain control when accelerating and cornering in riding scenarios that are less than ideal. But RDRS goes beyond just traction control and improves the overall riding experience in subtle ways.
