Harley-Davidson Trike, TriGlide

It's Here! The H-D Trike

Well after several years of rumors and speculation, it’s finally here, the Harley-Davidson Trike, or the Tri Glide Ultra Classic, or the FLHTCUTG if you want to use H-D lingo. I guess it makes sense for Harley to finally put a trike into their production lineup, if you look at the median age of their customers over the past 5 years or so, the median age isn’t staying the same it’s getting older. Generally speaking, as this large demographic gets older it’s tougher for them to handle the large and heavy two-wheeled touring bikes.Well after several years of rumors and speculation, it’s finally here, the Harley-Davidson Trike, or the Tri Glide Ultra Classic, or the FLHTCUTG if you want to use H-D lingo.

Notice I said “generally” speaking, that doesn’t mean there are plenty of riders out there well into their 60’s, 70’s and even beyond that ride two wheeled Touring Harleys. This new model will provide options for not only older riders but also disabled riders who thought their Harley riding days were over. What do you think about the H-D Trike?
