Road King® Special

Road King® Special

In Brief

Swapping chrome for black and powered by the muscular Milwaukee-Eight® 107 engine, the new Road King Special motorcycle pushes Harley-Davidson’s touring line in a dramatic new styling direction, expressing a contemporary perspective on the classic Road King model.
