2013 Harley-Davidson Ultra Classic Electra Glide Boasts Massive Heritage Looks

There are rather few large touring bikes which look as impressive as a fully-loaded Ultra Classic Electra Glide. The 2013 Harley-Davidson Ultra Classic Electra Glide has maxed everything, from the huge unmistakeable Bat-wing fairing, generous fuel tank and massive hard GTX saddlebags, leaving a very large space to proudly display a custom paint job.

If you're the kind of Harley-Davidson owner who like chrome, then the 2013 Ultra Classic Electra Glide is the right machine: not only it boasts the classic trim you'd usually fin on any large tourer, but comes with all sorts of shiny accessories, such as front fender, sidecase protectors, rear rack and all.

Being a huge touring machine we expected nothing short of the massive Twin Cam 103 engine with its 1690cc displacement and electronic sequential port fuel injection offering awesome torque at almost any rpm and good mileage. Even more, thanks to the 6-speed Drive Cruise gearbox you can now have the same fun in slow uphill turns and on the open freeway.

While the audio system and cruise control are standard, the ABS is not... we'd hoped for standard Brembo anti-lock brakes, but we'll have to live with it. Instead we have vented fairing lowers, full-length floorboards and adjustable air suspension. The 2013 Ultra Classic Electra Glide retails for prices staring with $21,799 (€17,050).
