2013 Touring Road Glide® Custom Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Classic Fuel Tank

Classic Fuel Tank

Part of the unmistakable style of the Harley-Davidson® Road Glide® Custom motorcycle is plenty of room for showing off your paint. This classically styled, bold six-gallon fuel tank doesn't just give you a bigger canvas for premium or custom paint; it holds six gallons of go so you can eat up a lot more road between pit stops. We know fuel economy is important—but so is style. Sharp, eye-catching colors and crisp pinstripes that run the length of the bike from the Shark-Nose fairing to the premium GTX® saddlebags—a one-of-a-kind look for any individual soul.

2013 Touring Road Glide® Custom Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Shark-Nose Fairing

Shark-Nose Fairing

The frame-mounted Shark-Nose fairing always leads you in the direction of the open road. With its twin headlamps, iconic style and unique attitude, it's absolutely distinct on the streets, while its integrated storage gives you a resting place for valuables you need to access easily during your journey. The headlamp shroud and windscreen trim add style to the fairing without straying from its legendary look.

2013 Touring Road Glide® Custom Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® GTX® Saddlebags

GTX® Saddlebags

These injection-molded hard bags have room for 2.26 cu. ft. volume of long-haul luxuries and a perfect surface for showing off some premium paint. Even better, these saddlebags open from the top, so your gear won't end up spilled all over the highway. They keep your fancy unmentionables dry, and the color-matched latches won't corrode in bad weather. And when you're off the road, one common key starts the bike and gives you access to your saddlebags, keeping your pockets as uncluttered as your bike's classic design.

2013 Touring Road Glide® Custom Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Custom Rear Taillight and Fascia

Custom Rear Taillight and Fascia

We keep the back end clean and no-nonsense with tri-line fender lights—a brilliant, unique taillight as the centerpiece—plus ground effects and a low mounted license plate with LED lighting for crisp visibility and style. This completes the powerful, one-of-a-kind look.

2013 Touring Road Glide® Custom Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Large 18-Inch Front Wheel

Large 18-Inch Front Wheel

If you crave long-haul agility on rides of all distances, then you're going to love this. We beefed things up a bit, adding a big, mighty wheel with a low aspect ratio. That means the bike maintains its legendary tight turning radius, balanced feel and superior low-speed maneuverability.

2013 Touring Road Glide® Custom Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Twin Cam 103™ Engine Heritage

Twin Cam 103 Engine Heritage

The knowledge of what makes an engine truly move a rider runs deep at The Motor Company, and it was put to good use when we created the Twin Cam 103 engine. We painstakingly perfected every cubic inch, pushing design and technology forward—all without compromising one bit of Harley-Davidson's unique styling. Evolved, yet carrying on the legacy of the Flathead, Knucklehead, Panhead, Shovelhead, Evolution®, Twin Cam 88® and Twin Cam 96 engines that came before. The performance and durability are a direct result of the untold miles logged on the V-Twin since 1909, and the proud heritage that comes from a century's worth of commitment to life on two wheels.

2013 Touring Road Glide® Custom Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Twin Cam 103™ Engine Innovation

Twin Cam 103 Engine Innovation

Fire up the Twin Cam 103 engine and feel the low-end torque unleashed. Thanks to the lightweight piston design, delivery of the added power is more refined than ever. Then put your foot on the shifter and feel how the engine and Six-Speed Cruise Drive® transmission were designed to work together. Six speeds. A strong driveline and strong internal parts. Low routine maintenance. And a low cruising rpm couldn't feel better.

2013 Touring Road Glide® Custom Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Pure Harley-Davidson Styling

Pure Harley-Davidson Styling

Feast your eyes on the Twin Cam 103 engine and there's no mistaking its roots. This is authentic Harley-Davidson style through and through with an attention to detail you won't find from any other motorcycle company. Black powder-coated heads and cylinders are highlighted by machined cooling fin tips and chrome rocker covers. It's a jewel machined out of metal. Pure. Dripping with power. From the classic edge of the cooling fins to the clean lines of cases and covers—the Twin Cam 103 engine makes an ironclad statement about holding on to what's right and staying true to what satisfies.

2013 Touring Road Glide® Custom Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Six-Speed Cruise Drive®

Six-Speed Cruise Drive®

You want a ride that rumbles—not begs for mercy—when you lean on it a little. The Six-Speed Cruise Drive® transmission provides smooth, quiet shifting and reduces engine speed on the highway, so you get a better match between engine turnover and road speed. And the Isolated Drive System makes acceleration flow in a smooth, steady stream from your wrist right down to the pavement. It's a rare ride when a bike responds like this, and a low growl goes a long way when you're opening up the road ahead.

2013 Touring Road Glide® Custom Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Twin Cam 103™ Engine Power

Twin Cam 103 Engine Power

Live your ride to the power of 103. The air cooled Twin Cam 103 Harley Davidson® engine delivers more stump pulling torque, while its Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection jetting gives crisp, lively throttle reaction. It’s a performance punch that you’ll appreciate when passing, climbing hills, or rolling with luggage packed or a passenger in back—all under that signature Motor Company rumble. And it comes at lower cruising rpm, so you ride more smoothly, with less engine vibration and better highway fuel economy.

2013 Touring Road Glide® Custom Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Harman/Kardon® Audio System

Harman/Kardon® Audio System

Naturally, the king of the road gets some royal extras. The premium two-speaker, 20-watt per channel Harman/Kardon® audio system boasts great sound for booming down the boulevard and highway, and, yeah, it might as well go to 11. It's loud, proud and comes with AM/FM receiver and accommodates a CD or MP3 player. Riding free just wouldn't be the same without the right soundtrack.

2013 Touring Road Glide® Custom Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® High Output Accessory Connector

High Output Accessory Connector

Harley-Davidson® touring means maximum comfort in all conditions and the capacity to add whatever enhances and personalizes your ride. The high output charging system provides an electrical capacity robust enough for your add-ons: heated vests, heated seats, heated handgrips, lights to showcase the engine, you name it. So if you're hell-bent on two-wheeling it, we make sure you've got the juice to do it your way.

2013 Touring Road Glide® Custom Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Cruise Control (Optional)

Cruise Control (Optional)

If you're ready to take touring to the next level, the optional cruise feature will help you settle in for the long haul. Get the comfort of the cruise without the cables cluttering up your handlebar. Our electronic throttle control technology makes it possible to have the best of both worlds.

2013 Touring Road Glide® Custom Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Anti-Lock Brakes (Optional)

Anti-Lock Brakes (Optional)

When it comes to the Road Glide® Custom with optional ABS, 'stopping power' has a double meaning. The components of our ABS are tastefully hidden within the wheel hub, so you'll still turn heads with a clean, streamlined design. More importantly, though, you get certainty in the saddle knowing your bike's going to behave when you need it. Offered as a part of the 'Security Package' (which includes the H-D® Smart Security System).

2013 Touring Road Glide® Custom Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® H-D® Smart Security System (Optional)

H-D® Smart Security System (Optional)

The factory installed next-generation security system features a hands-free fob that automatically arms and disarms the vehicle electronic security functions as you approach and walk away from the bike. Stick the fob on your ignition key ring and let it do all the work. It's this attention to details and security that make Harley-Davidson® motorcycles unique. Offered as a part of the 'Security Package' (which includes Anti-Lock Brakes).

2013 Touring Road Glide® Custom Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Frame-Mounted Fairing

Frame-Mounted Fairing

The iconic Shark-Nose fairing on the Road Glide® Custom is bolted to the motorcycle frame so it stays put and cuts down the wind with all its might in order to make your ride smooth and easy going. Reputed for extreme performance and a highly distinct style, this fairing is an original in motorcycling history, and stands firm as a defining element of the legendary Harley-Davidson® Road Glide® models.

2013 Touring Road Glide® Custom Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Dunlop® Multi-Tread™ Tires

Dunlop® Multi-Tread Tires

The 180mm back tire is engineered to do more than fill out the rear fender and put a bigger patch of rubber on the road. Dunlop® Multi-Tread technology uses harder compounds at the center and softer on the sides for a tire that still knows how to knuckle-down on corners. Perfect for making this bike agile on every curvy stretch of road. And the way it feels going through an abrupt off-camber turn will put a grin on your face that'll last to the next state line.

2013 Touring Road Glide® Custom Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Brembo® Brakes

Brembo® Brakes

Confidence. Control. High-performance dual disc Brembo® brakes offer consistent stopping power at all speeds. The 4-piston front and rear caliper with dual front rotor brake system is state of the art and top of the line. It's just another way The Motor Company puts a high level of detail into their bikes to give you peace of mind throughout your journey.

2013 Touring Road Glide® Custom Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Air-Adjustable Suspension

Air-Adjustable Suspension

With air-adjustable suspension that comes standard, you can dial in your ride to accommodate heavier or lighter payloads, battle unexpected road conditions or simply set it to how you like to roll. The lighter the load, the softer you can go by decreasing the air pressure a bit, or increase the air pressure for a more firm ride. A convenient air valve is located between the saddlebag and rear fender for quick adjusting. It's all about rider and passenger comfort and setting your bike to fit your taste—the easy way.

2013 Touring Road Glide® Custom Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Two-Up Seating

Two-Up Seating

Modern styling and comfort that doesn't sacrifice an ounce of nostalgic style: This ultimate Touring saddle features a sculpted seat with a deeper contoured bucket and narrower neck, to relieve pressure on your thighs, while providing more back support and comfort for a wide variety of rider sizes. And the lower seat height—26.1 inches to be exact—puts your feet closer to the road to enhance your confidence. Additionally, the leather trim and premium stitching accentuate the advanced ergonomics while giving the seat that sharp detail you only find on a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle. It's science in service of comfort, and your way to beat fatigue over the long haul.

2013 Touring Road Glide® Custom Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Full-Length Footboards

Full-Length Footboards

Your boots were made for riding, in any way you see fit. Our full-length footboards boast a tried and true design that's stood the test of time. With space to rock plenty of foot positions for your taste and comfort and rubber vibration isolation for a comfortable ride. Traditional toe shifting is familiar to seasoned riders and intuitive for those just starting out. Heel shifting makes getting through the gears even easier and more convenient. It takes a few rides, but once you've gotten used to the smooth shifting rhythm, you'll never give it up. Plus, the passenger footpegs add another level of comfort for your riding partner.

2013 Touring Road Glide® Custom Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Wide Set Handlebar

Wide Set Handlebar

Classic style and maximum comfort. That's the perfect balance of the wide set handlebars that come standard on the Road Glide® Custom model. They're designed to keep you comfortably propped in a commanding position while making sure your neck muscles stay calm and relaxed mile after mile, state after state. Durable stainless steel insures the structural rigidity you expect from a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle with the deep, lustrous finish you desire.
