Harley Davidson Road King Classic

The Road King® Classic owes its looks to the golden decade of the 1950’s. This ‘boulevard cruiser’ drips in chrome, leather and whitewall tyres but naturally it also benefits from a wealth of today’s technology. Air adjusted suspension, electronically linked ABS braking system, a high output Twin Cam 103™ engine, are just some of its features.
