Harley-Davidson 1745 ROAD GLIDE ULTRA FLTRU 2018

Being one of the largest ships in Harley-Davidson’s Touring lineup, the Road Glide Ultra is entitled to a few privileges. The most important is undoubtedly the adoption of the M8 107 ci engine block. Called Milwaukee Eight, the muscle that now drives this mastodon is up to Harley’s ambitions.

Watts, overflowing torque and modernity. Faithful to tradition, this imposing thruster has two cylinders arranged in a V at 45 °. The engineers worked hard to give more than that, more than metal and fins. The cylinder heads house 4 valves per cylinder, as well as two spark plugs to optimize combustion. With 1746 cm3 and partially liquid cooling, a multitude of improvements and better breathing, this ninth generation of "big block" powers the Road Glide Ultra with all-new vigor.

Some numbers ? Let us thank you for the couple, which is progressing by almost 1 mkg and a half; or 15.5 at 3250 rpm. If we compare it to the ex Twin Cam High Output 1690 cm3, the difference is obvious. To go from 0 to 100 km / h, and from 100 to 130, the machine is 11% faster.
A balance shaft helps reduce idle vibration by 75%, while maintaining the typical Harley pulse and character. To learn more about the Milwaukee Eight engine, click here ->
The MoCo also takes care of road comfort with new Showa suspensions. The fork is more efficient and more stable damping. Rear shocks are no longer from the generation of pneumatic systems. Emulsified and fitted with a simplified adjustment, they ensure that a constant preload can be maintained.

The look is reinforced, especially as the Road Glide always surprises. His particular facies filters his audience, and brings him an indescribable attraction. In addition to protection and a sense of direction different from the Electra. Harley worked quite a bit on this model, building on the Rushmore project. The fork crown has been profiled for optimum management of aerodynamic flows. To make a simple without sinking into the technical documentation: a dose of comfortable air for the pilot and another to cool the engine.

What’s in the Rushmore project already? Testimonials, opinions, ideas from thousands of Harley users; pursued by concrete applications. Including a lot of models and de facto the 1745 Road Glide Ultra. You can take advantage of the Reflex brakes, a 49 mm thick fork, lightweight Impeller aluminum rims, improved dashboard graphics and controls, and cruise control. On the entertainment side, the Boom Box 6.5 GT system crushes all the competition. A large 16.5cm touchscreen controls audio, GPS, USB, MP3 – and sends it all to you either via Bluetooth or through 100w of power into four 13.34cm speakers.

Comfort takes an important place on this bike. The rider benefits from a revised seat and higher handlebars compared to the Road Glide Special. Far from being forgotten, the passenger benefits from a backrest, armrests, and a longer and wider seat by 25 mm, again compared to the FLTRXS. The Tour-Pak offers 4% more capacity and opens / closes via a single OneTouch lock, just like the suitcases and the fuel door.
The machine is imposing, and requires a certain financial commitment. After, as Harley says: "They cross two borders before lunch…"
