Ultra Classic Electra Glide
This is the sixth time the Ultra Classic Electra Glide (FLHTCUSE6; eight letters and one number) has been a CVO model. As the elder statesmen of this year's group, it stands alone as the only model offered in one paint scheme, Black Ember and Rio Red with Flame graphics. Geared toward the long-haul rider who only leaves the seat when...well, actually probably never...this bike is the ultimate in H-D Touring. With a color-matched King Tour-Pak, a wrap-around passenger seat and rear speakers, electronic cruise control, anti-lock brakes, an integrated garage door opener and receiver, 80-watt Harmon Kardon Advanced Audio with CB/intercom, a myriad of Rumble Collection components, heated hand grips, highway pegs, interior Tour-Pak and saddlebag LED lighting, and Contrast Chrome Roulette Wheels, you wouldn't think there was much more that could be added to this bike. Oh, but there is.

New for this model is a Navigation Interface Module that provides an internal connection to the dash-mounted Road Tech zumo 660 GPS unit. This new setup allows the GPS unit to feed turn-by-turn voice commands through the speakers. A new Hammock-style-suspended, dual-control heated seat and a springboard-style suspension system in the passenger seat allow the rider and passenger to click the miles away in warmth and comfort. Dual headsets allow the rider and passenger to communicate with each other without screaming (unless you really dislike the other person). At the rear of the bike the new chrome billet end caps with black spears let people know they've just been passed by someone with style. One of the cool features on this model is the Power Locking System, which provides push-button activation to lock and unlock the ignition, Tour-Pak, and saddlebags with the touch of a button. This feature really makes getting in and out of storage a breeze as it can be clicked to unlock from the comfort of a barstool (if within range) as the wife goes to retrieve her hairbrush.

Riding the Ultra is almost like being in a convertible Cadillac, except way more fun. While it is a big bike, the 110ci engine adequately propels it down the road with good acceleration. Leaning in and out of turns, the redesigned touring frame from a few years ago helps keep everything in alignment from front to rear but can still give a little rear shimmy if you hit a bump just right. Even with its heavier weight, low-speed turning is seamless and smooth. And if you're not used to the anti-lock brakes, they can rattle your nerves a bit but will help save your butt in a pinch. The Ultra Classic Electra Glide has an MSRP of $36,499, with 1,500 units being produced.
