All the inner parts have matched colors: the inner fairi cap, the inner fairi assembly and the fender filler strips from the rear. The wheels were designed to look like a roulette and are of 16 inch at the rear and of 17 inch diameter in the front.

The passenger and the rider are being protected by the road debris and the wind with the help of a mounted fork which looks like a cocoon. The passenger seat has a monogram called Ultra Electra Glide and on top of that both the passenger and the rider have reshaped seats on which you can adjust the backrests.

Compared to the Road Ultra Electra this model has a different seating position, it is more upright. All the instruments are simple to use and easy to read and in each gauge pod you can see a diamond cut inset.

The bike is also equipped with a 660 GPS modular handlebar mounted Road Tech and with a Harmon/Kardon audio system which helps you with the voice directions you need in order to get to your destination. The controls needed for the voice system are found in the handlebars and more the wires have been introduced into the bar which gives the cockpit a much more cleaner look.

The power source for electronic devices is a power plug with a 12 volt cigarette style. The engine is a Twin Cam 110 V-Twin which enables you to move quick forward. The fuel injection settings and the throttle response are well calibrated.

The breaking system is very easy to use and of a good quality which completes the very friendly handling system. The tires are equipped with ABS and the breakers offer a good stop power. The weight of the motorcycle is of 900 pounds.

As all the other models from the Ultra Electra Glide line this one also continues to impress us with a timeless style and an effortless performance. This bige also comes with a price tag to match.
