Interesting. I believe they have needed this bike in the lineup.
Interesting that they list the Standard at 781 lbs, Road King at 791 and Street Glide at 796.
And the road glide is at a whopping 821 lbs. Something doesn't add up.
Glad they brought it back. It really did leave a hole between the Streetglide and the rest of the touring line. Can't wait to see it in person. The starting price certainly seems right.
I was just thinking yesterday, I wish they’d bring back the Standard. Figured they were trying to sell Street Glides instead.
Good to see this.
I think I want one! I don’t want a stereo anyway.
Wonder if it handles lighter than it actually is...
Why not? The Road Glide has the biggest fairing and amount of bodywork of any of the touring bikes.
I was just about to post this in another thread when I saw someone had already created a new one.
So the RK is basically the same price. What would be the pros and cons of this bike and the Road King?
RK has taller suspension and passing lamps.
RK has passenger accommodations.
Taller suspension would be the only thing I'd care about. Little miffed they didn't put the same rear suspension on the bike as the Ultra Classic/Limited.
Does the Standard have the short street glide suspension or the taller electraglide/roadking etc suspension?
Might spend some of your savings on quality shocks regardless. A friend put ohlins on his road glide S.
To be fair, it's a bit of an exaggeration that the unequal shocks put super wonky stress on the swingarm, I think the spring-only right side would have been engineered to counteract it. Still seems weird to me.
Oh my. I hope it has the real suspension, not that "slammed" crap.
Nope, Street Glide suspension
and only in black, apparently. Swing and a miss.
So.... instead of an Electraglide Standard, we got a black only, stereo-less solo SG.
Yea, too bad.
I've got an early seventies Cadillac stereo that would fit right into that hole.
but does it have an 8-track?
Oooo, even better. That hole in the dash is going to have its own page in the motor parts book.
Right. I installed a Legends suspension, front and rear, on my Limited. Big difference in comfort, some improvement in handling.
