The new Harley-Davidson Sport
Glide motorcycle introduced earlier at the Eicma 2017 in Milan is a versatile
quick-change artist, ready to transition in just minutes from aggressive
cruising to weekend touring duty. Outfitted with a detachable fairing and
saddlebags, the Sport Glide is the ninth model based on the all-new
Harley-Davidson Softail platform and the latest in a line of 100 high-impact
motorcycles the company plans to introduce by 2027.
The Sport Glide’s new fairing
is shaped to deflect wind away from the rider’s chest while leaving the rider’s
head in a clean stream of air. The fairing is secured to the fork tubes with
quick-release clamps, making removal or installation fast and easy. The new
lockable, rigid saddle bags feature a sleek clam-shell design and can be
removed in seconds, leaving behind mounting points that are barely visible. New
Mantis cast-aluminium wheels feature sweeping spokes and are the first
directional wheels on a non-CVO model.
Milwaukee-Eight 107 V-Twin powertrain pumps out a lot of torque for great acceleration
and passing power. A broad and supportive saddle sets the Sport Glide’s seat
height at just 25.7 inches, with forward-mounted foot controls contributing to
a rider triangle designed to fit a broad range of riders. The Daymaker LED
headlamp is surrounded by a ring of LED signature lighting. Anti-lock Braking
System (ABS), electronic cruise control, a USB charging port, keyless ignition
and the Harley-Davidson Smart Security System are all standard features of the
