Harley Davidson Street Glide Special

This is a machine that’s every bit as comfortable with a trip to the office as it is with a grand tour. Last year’s Project RUSHMORE gave it its high output 103 engine, low profile air ride rear suspension, wind tunnel tested Batwing fairing, dual halogen lights, intelligently organised controls and the latest infotainment system. This year we’ve added factory pin-striping, a painted inner fairing and upgraded the infotainment system to Boom!™ Box 6.5GT audio system with GPS and touchscreen.

The 2015 Street Glide® Special takes the hot-rod bagger formula a little further, with a Gloss Black inner fairing, Reflex™ Linked Brakes with ABS, the Boom!™ Box 6.5 GT infotainment system
and CVO™ model style hand-adjustable lowered rear suspension as standard equipment. Powered by the High Output Twin Cam 103™ engine and featuring a Batwing fairing with Splitstream vent to reduce rider head buffeting, the Street Glide® Special is truly loaded bagger.

The innovative Harley-Davidson® Touring chassis, based on a single-spar, rigid backbone frame and a stout swingarm developed to withstand the demands of long-haul touring riders and today’s
more-powerful engines.
