Harley-Davidson Road King Classic Shows 2014 Upgrades [Photo Gallery]
What's even cooler about the new Road King is the fact that these upgrades are more felt than seen: this will surely please those in love with classic H-D bikes, while adding to their overall riding experience, allowing them to actually enjoy these machines more, while still keeping their souls warm with the retro look.
Among the modern magic Harley worked on the 2014 Road King Classic we should definitely count the linked ABS brakes with premium Brembo 4-pot calipers, revised steering head and forks, better-ergonomics for the hand controls, LED and halogen headlights and auxiliary lighting, and the brighter turn signals.
Input from multiple riders caught in the Project Rushmore development effort was used for tweaking a bike which was already cool. Wider bars, a quick-removable windscreen, air-adjustable suspensions and cruise control are offered as standard equipment, too.
On the engine side, the revisited Twin Cam 103 is now brawnier thanks to the same Project Rushmore tweaking, involving a new air intake and being capable of delivering more torque in the lower rpm range. The Six-Speed Cruise Drive gear is also used to belt-drive the bike.
No prices have been announced for the base and two-tone graphics versions. However, if adding more bling (and weight) to the 2014 Harley-Davidson Road King Classic FLHRC is one of your fav games, rest assured as the MoCo has plenty of accessories for you.
