The 2018 Harley-Davidson Sport Glide is an aggressive factory custom built for touring, cruising and commuting.\r\n\r\nThe Sports Glide motorcycle is powered by the Milwaukee-Eight 107 V-Twin engine powertrain that pumps out a mountain of torque for outstanding acceleration and passing power.\r\n\r\nThe new lightweight and stiff Softail chassis delivers top-of-the-line agility and handling performance, mated with 43mm inverted forks, and remote hydraulic rear shock spring preload adjustment.\r\n\r\nThe Sport Glide rolls on new Mantis cast-aluminium wheels, 18-inch front and 16-inch rear, shod with Michelin Scorcher 31 performance tyres. Full LED lighting and electronic cruise control round out the Sport Glide\u2019s winning combination of technology and style.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\u201cThe Sport Glide offers the thrilling dynamic capability of the new Softail platform with features that make it suited for both commuting and light touring,\u201d says Dave Latz, Senior Product Planning Manager, Harley-Davidson. \u201cIts factory-custom design speaks to modern performance and contemporary style.\u201d\r\n\r\nOther Sport Glide enhancements include a wide, supportive seat and forward-mounted foot controls designed to fit a broad range of riders. The all-new Softail monoshock rear suspension is controlled via an exposed knob below the right-side cover. It\u2019s thus easy to accommodate the weight of luggage or passenger while maintaining optimal suspension performance and steering geometry.\r\n\r\n\r\nWe chat to Distinguished Gentleman's Ride Founder Mark Hawwa\r\nThe new rigid (and lockable) panniers feature a sleek clamshell design.
