While it may seem like yesterday, Harley-Davidson® is nearing the 10-year anniversary of the new Street Glide® launch. It is in some ways a motorcycle that we take for granted now, but it was a game changer at the time. Harley-Davidson® recognized how many riders were customizing their baggers and introduced the Street Glide® in response to that. It was an instant hit and really went on to shape the modern bagger scene. Harley-Davidson® of Tampa is your premier H-D dealership serving riders in and near St. Petersburg Clearwater Wesley Chapel, and we now have the 2021 Harley-Davidson® Street Glide®. The 2021 model is a culmination of everything that has come before it and a pinnacle for custom baggers.
Street Glide® Overview
The 2021 Harley-Davidson® Street Glide® in Tampa is a grand American touring motorcycle. It also available in two special editions, which are the Street Glide® Special and the CVO Street Glide®. The base model is, as Harley-Davidson® calls it, the original stripped-down hot-rod bagger. Vivid Black is the default color scheme, and you have two premium options: Billiard Red and River Rock Gray. This is a bike that oozes style and is just as appropriate around town as it is on the open road. Notable characteristics include an upright riding position, a fork-mounted fairing, floorboards, a passenger seat, saddlebags, infotainment and the option to have the Reflex Defensive Rider Systems.
Who This Bike Is For
According to Harley-Davidson®, the 2021 Harley-Davidson® Street Glide® in Tampa is the right bike for riders seeking a slammed custom look. This is the aesthetic riders were going for in years past when H-D reimagined the Street Glide®, and it is still insanely popular today. This is a motorcycle that just drips with character and style and really is just as comfortable around town as it is out on the open road. That versatility is a big selling point as well. Many riders own just one motorcycle and thus want a bike that performs well in a range of riding scenarios, and that is certainly the case with the Street Glide®.
Every 2021 Harley-Davidson® Street Glide® has the Milwaukee-Eight® 107 V-Twin engine. This engine is not only powerful but smooth running. It delivers a crisp throttle response and, of course, the soul-satisfying rumble that H-D enthusiasts know well and love. The top-end speed is exhilarating, and there is plenty of acceleration here for hitting an on-ramp or overtaking slower vehicles. Engine torque is 111 feet-pound. Both the front and rear wheels are Enforce II cast aluminum. As mentioned earlier, you have the option of RDRS, which are automatic rider assists that kick when conditions are less than ideal. Note that if you want RDRS, you have to select it at purchase. It cannot be added after the fact.
The Street Glide® comes with the state-of-the-art Boom! Box 4.3 infotainment system. This system is controlled via joysticks and buttons that are found on each handle. Boom! Box enhances the riding experience with one of the best listening experiences on a motorcycle ever. You can also pair your Android or Apple smartphone so that you can take calls and take advantage of other features made available through those devices, such as navigation audio streamed through the audio system.
Can You Personalize It?
Absolutely! Many riders choose a stripped-down bagger because they like the stripped-down aesthetic. But many others choose it as a canvas upon which they can express themselves as an H-D enthusiast. That is an important part of the Harley-Davidson® tradition, and you will find an impressive catalog of parts and accessories through which you can personalize your Street Glide®.
