Harley Davidson STREET GLIDE Custom Motorbike Review


By on 11:47 PM

overall verdict
The Street Glide tries hard to bridge the gap between full-on tourer and custom street bike. The bike is based on Harley’s spine frame touring chassis but is ‘slammed’ for a low mean look. The twin cam 96 cubic inch (1584cc) engine hauls the bike briskly to a comfortable 80mph cruising speed with just the right amount of vibes. As with all the air-cooled Harley engines, they may not be fast but they sure are tractable.
Engine
The rubber mounted Twin Cam engine packs enough punch to swiftly haul rider and pillion up to an 80mph cruising speed. The motor offers instant torque from walking pace and once underway the gear lever is largely an accessory. It may be an old-fashioned push-rod style motor but fuel injection and electronic throttle control to squeeze maximum driveabilty from the 1584cc lump.
Ride and Handling
Considering its size, the ‘bat-wing’ handlebar mounted fairing does a remarkable job of protecting you from the breeze and below 80mph you can hear the stereo clearly. The ride is good considering the slammed suspension. New for 2010 is an 18inch front wheel and dual compound tyres.
Equipment
The four speaker Harmon Kardon 40 watt audio system works well and can be heard up to 80mph, though switching between radio and CD is frustratingly difficult. The hard Nylon panniers aren’t exactly the most convenient shape being long and thin but they are deep. Like all Harleys, the seat is thick, wide and will stay comfy mile-after-mile.
Quality and Reliability
Harleys are meant to polished not punished. The acres of chrome and paint won’t take well to a British winter but in recent years they’ve taken huge steps to improve the durability of the finish.
Value
You might not get the performance and handling that you do from an equivalent European or Japanese cruiser but to many people the Harley kudos overcomes all.
