harley writes new chapter in history of road king

Harley-Davidson has added a new chapter to the Road King story by creating the Road King Special, “a machine that exudes a bold new attitude and much darker edge”. The roots of the Road King go back to 1949 when the first of the line was designated the FL.

“The FL series has always reflected the purity of the Harley-Davidson riding experience,” said Brad Richards, Harley-Davidson Vice-President of Styling & Design.
“By exchanging chrome surfaces for black and lowering the bike’s profile, we’ve moved the traditional Road King into a new space that’s very current in the custom bagger scene. Built to ride, and ride hard, the Road King Special also broods with menace. Just as we designed it to…”

The new bike is bathed in black and powered by the new 1750cc Milwaukee-Eight engine.
