The Electra Glide by Harley Davidson still Grabs Attention
The Electra Glide is one of the most iconic Harleys that have been favored by law enforcement and those chasing the horizon. The distinctive feature of the Electra Glide is the batwing fairing as it is easily recognized.
Nowadays the Electra Glide is the height of motorcycle luxury and refinement. The Electra Glide is offered in many trim and equipment levels, as you are able to get features like hands free Bluetooth, iPod presets, rider passenger intercom and a 25-watt sound system.
An air-cooled V twin that displaces 1700cc and features fuel injection, a six-speed transmission and twin overhead camshafts produces the power of the Harley Davidson.
It is not the fastest bike, but it has enough power for a flawless all day rides and is surprisingly light on fuel.
Not only is this a great bike to get around with, but it also has a presence. The Electra Glide announces its arrival and everyone has a look. It is beautiful to look at and has a seriousness that can’t be imitated even though other manufacturers have tried. This is one of the reasons why law enforcement still gravitates towards the Electra Glide.
Another reason that the police prefer the Electra Glide is because of its low speed stability. When this Harley is in traffic or is low speed trolling it is as steady as a rock. However, if the Electra Glide does fall over you wont get it back easily because it weighs a massive 400 kilograms.
The bike presents an enjoyable ride and when you crack the throttle you have endless torque and takeoff power. When you ride the highway it is smooth and stable and almost effortless.
Even though the Electra Glide is getting old and newer bikes by Harley are hitting the road, it is still one that will always turn heads.
