2012 Harley Davidson Road King Review and Specifications

2012 Harley Davidson Road King

Timeless boulevard cruiser style fully-equipped for comfortable long-distance touring

When the original Harley Davidson Road King motorcycle was introduced in 1994, it didn’t take long for it to obtain iconic status.

Its heritage goes all the way back to the original 1965 Electra Glide model. It may look like a timeless boulevard cruiser, but it is also a fully equipped, long-distance tourer.

The 2012 Harley Davidson Road King model features a detachable windshield, an air-adjustable touring rear suspension, and a comfortable seating position – just what rider and passenger demand for long-distance comfort. Spacious, injection molded saddlebags are standard, making it easy to pack for whatever lies ahead. The new, standard 1690 cc Twin Cam 103™ engine and 6-Speed Cruise Drive transmission provide power and smoothness, and features an integrated oil cooler. The Security Package Option bundles an anti-lock braking system and Harley Davidson Smart Security system for greater value, making it easier to upgrade your ride straight from the factory.
