Harley-Davidson Street Glide® vs. Road Glide®: Performance

When it comes to performance between the Road Glide® vs. Street Glide®, you’ll find plenty of similarities on the Albany roads. That’s because both models offer top-of-the-line engineering: a Milwaukee-Eight® 107 engine, standard Reflex linked Brembo brakes with ABS, and a classic 6-gallon fuel tank. In total, this adds up to 111 lb-ft of torque and 3,250 RPM of engine torque, along with specs like:

  • ESPFI w/ heated O2 sensors
  • 6-Speed Cruise Drive transmission 
  • Assist & Slip hydraulic clutch 
  • Electronic throttle control 
  • Rider-initiated Engine Idle Temperature Management System 

Harley-Davidson Road Glide® vs. Street Glide®: Style

One of the biggest differences between the Road Glide® vs. Street Glide® is the design. Both are Touring models with an upright riding position and saddlebags, but they also have their distinctive styles. Most notably, they have different fairing designs that influence not just the look of the motorcycle, but the handling on the Lebanon roads as well. The Harley-Davidson Road Glide® models have a frame-mounted fairing style while the Harley-Davidson Street Glide® models feature a fork-mounted fairing style. Ultimately, it just boils down to personal preference, so which is the right option for you?

Harley-Davidson Street Glide®: 

  • Chrome exhaust/mufflers 
  • Batwing inner fairing 
  • Chrome saddlebag support for increased passenger legroom
