Redesigned Softail® Frame

As the latest from the Softail® line, the Sport Glide® comes standard with the iconic Softail® frame, with all the look and performance you’d expect from one of these bikes. They rely on a distinctive Softail® hidden monoshock rear suspension to give you cleaner lines and better handling. The Sport Glide® comes with all of this, plus a few exciting upgrades. It features a 34% stiffer frame to give you more control over a more responsive bike, no matter how hard the lines or how severe the angles. The Sport Glide® is also one of the lighter bikes in the Softail® line and still comes equipped with high performance suspension so you can add on all the additional luggage you’ll need for long distance travel and not compromise the quality of your ride.

Milwaukee-Eight™ Engine

Brand new year, brand new bike, brand new engine. The Sport Glide® comes standard with the all-new Milwaukee-Eight™ 107 engine, a beast of a machine packed with over a century of engineering innovation and riding experience. After just a few moments behind this electronically fuel injected V-Twin engine, you’ll feel the massive torque to keep you glued to the road while you’re tearing up the pavement. You’ll also get faster 0-60 mph and 60-80 mph than previous Softail® models. But don’t let all the power and all the growl fool you. The Milwaukee-Eight™ 107 engine is completely counterbalanced, so you won’t get the matching, whiplash-inducing vibration. It’s also built with a sleeker profile to fit perfectly in the slim frame of the Sport Glide®.

Touring Ready

The real draw of getting the Sport Glide® is its versatility. If you’re the kind of rider who needs a commuting bike today and a touring bike tomorrow, you should know this bike was designed with you in mind. The Sport Glide®’s lightweight stature makes it ideal for cruising, but also more agile to handle over long distances. It also comes equipped with a mini-fairing to deflect the harsh, highway winds away from your body and keep you more refreshed after all-day riding. The low-vibration Milwaukee-Eight™ 107 engine keeps your ride smooth from start to finish. For all that extra cargo you’ll be bringing, the Sport Glide® also comes with hard-side locking saddlebags, which will also keep your luggage safe while keeping it out of sight. If you need to slim down for easier maneuvering while cruising, the saddlebags and the mini-fairing are easily removable. No matter what you have planned for the day, the Sport Glide® is the reliable motorcycle you’ll want to help you get things done.

Technology with Style

Finally, what would a brand new Harley-Davidson® bike be without all the fancy bells and whistles? The Sport Glide® comes with the latest motorcycle technologies including the LED forward-lighting system and keyless ignition. If you’re more into the look of your bike, you might be more excited about some of the most popular styling choices that come with the Sport Glide®, such as blacked out Milwaukee-Eight™ 107 engine, blacked out mufflers, and Mantis cast aluminum wheels. It’s the modern bike for the modern rider.
