Harley-Davidson® enthusiasts in and near St. Petersburg Clearwater Wesley Chapel will be thrilled to learn that the new Road Glide® has arrived and that you can test-ride the 2021 Harley-Davidson® Road Glide® in Tampa at Harley-Davidson® of Tampa. Those of you with enough miles on the road will remember when the Road Glide® has first added to the H-D® family some 20 years ago. In the time since, it has become a fixture of the H-D® touring scene and one of the more influential bikes in the lineup. This is an ideal option for riders seeking a classic touring bike with premium features, such as Boom! Box GTS and optional RDRS, and you can opt for either a chrome or blacked-out aesthetic.
Road Glide® Overview
The Road Glide—and its brother vehicle the Street Glide—set the standard for the modern American touring motorcycle. The Road Glide® introduced frame-mounted fairings to Harley-Davidson® tourers, and the fundamental difference between the two models is that the Road Glide® has a shark-nosed fairing whereas the Street Glide has a batwing fairing. The 2021 Harley-Davidson® Road Glide® is a long-distance bike that is designed to ride with ease and comfort for long stretches of road. Other notable characteristics include upright riding placement, floorboards, a passenger seat, saddlebags and an infotainment system, which we will touch on more in a moment. Something else we will touch on more is RDRS, which is now optional with the Road Glide® and the biggest update for this model year.
The 2021 Harley-Davidson® Road Glide® in Tampa has a distinctive feel. It feels different even than the Street Glide, which is a great reason to visit our location and test-ride them both. All standard models come with the Milwaukee-Eight® 107 V-Twin engine. It is powerful and smooth. It delivers sharp throttle control and provides that H-D® rumble you know and love. The engine delivers more than 90 hp and 100 lb.-ft. of torque. It features a 2-1-2 dual exhaust with tapered mufflers. Running weight is just a bit more than 850 pounds. Ground clearance is 6 inches. The wheels are Enforcer II Cast Aluminum.
Technologies & Customization
The Road Glide® is a sophisticated touring motorcycle. It features the Boom! Box GTS infotainment. The smaller screen is included by default, but you do have the option to upgrade to the 6.5-inch touchscreen. You can also have it included standard with the Road Glide® Special variant. As mentioned, RDRS is now optional with the Road Glide. RDRS stands for Reflex Defensive Rider Systems, and it is a factory option, which means you cannot choose to upgrade to RDRS after the fact. RDRS is a collection of electronic chassis control systems that help to stabilize the bike in suboptimal conditions.
RDRS is hardly the only way that you can personalize your 2021 Harley-Davidson® Road Glide. As one of the most popular rides in the H-D® lineup, the H-D® catalog support for it is extensive. New arrivals are added each season, and older items still apply to the new model as well. You also have collections to choose from, which help you to keep your accessories within a particular theme.
