2013 Touring Road King® Classic Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Classic Fuel Tank

Classic Fuel Tank

Part of the unmistakable style of the Harley-Davidson® Road King® Classic 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. A dual-color paint scheme, crisp pinstripes that accentuate the clean lines of the bike and unique Harley-Davidson tank medallions make this ride the real king of the road.

2013 Touring Road King® Classic Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Classic Hiawatha Headlamp

Classic Hiawatha Headlamp

Big and commanding, this headlamp hearkens back to the Big Twins of the 60s. You get nothing less than the latest in materials and technology. Clear-lens reflector optics provide a longer distance high beam and wider low beam. It's a bright, striking daytime lamp that blasts a little further into the night. There's just no beating the classic lines of that sweeping headlight nacelle.

2013 Touring Road King® Classic Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Leather-Wrapped Saddlebags

Leather-Wrapped Saddlebags

Unique to the Road King® Classic model are injection-molded hard saddlebags draped in premium leather. The intricate, hand-tooled leather is stitched with style and extremely durable as compared to other leather-wrapped bags out on the road. Bottom line—they keep their shape and never sag. And as the leather ages, it adds to the classic, old school attitude of the bike. With a capacity of 1.85 cu. ft. volume of storage, these slick bags keep your things conveniently tucked away on the road, and easy to access whenever you need them.

2013 Touring Road King® Classic Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Tank Mounted Gauges

Tank Mounted Gauges

Tank-mounted fuel gauges boast traditional styling while offering you a clean, unobstructed view of the electric speedometer and odometer. A little chrome never hurts either. You'll only find these unique gauges on the Road King® and Road King® Classic models.

2013 Touring Road King® Classic Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Wide Whitewall Tires

Wide Whitewall Tires

One of the defining styling features of the Road King® Classic model is the nostalgic wide whitewall tires with premium laced wheels. A nod to the 1950s boulevard look, these fat rubber rollers are just the right throwback detail from Harley-Davidson that ups the ante in any scene. Total old school styling without sacrificing handling or performance.

2013 Touring Road King® Classic Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Unique Rear Fender Styling

Unique Rear Fender Styling

At the tail end of the Road King® Classic model, a cool premium chrome accent tells those behind you exactly how you roll. With the legendary H-D® forged in the chrome, there's no way anyone can mistake the quality and style of The Motor Company. The license plate bracket sits high up on the fender and, as an extra touch, we throw a little LED lighting around the plate for crisp visibility.

2013 Touring Road King® Classic 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 King® Classic 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 King® Classic 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 to holding on to what's right and staying true to what satisfies the rider.

2013 Touring Road King® Classic 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 King® Classic Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Twin Cam 103™ Engine Power

Twin Cam 103 Engine Power

Live your ride to the power of Twin Cam 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 King® Classic Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Cruise Control

Cruise Control

If you're ready to take touring to the next level, the standard 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 King® Classic Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Anti-Lock Brakes

Anti-Lock Brakes

When it comes to the Road King® Classic model with 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.

2013 Touring Road King® Classic Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® H-D® Smart Security System

H-D® Smart Security System

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.

2013 Touring Road King® Classic 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 King® Classic 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 King® Classic 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 King® Classic 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 King® Classic Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Full-Length Footboards & Toe/Heel Gear Shifts

Full-Length Footboards & Toe/Heel Gear Shifts

Your boots were made for riding—any way you see fit. Our full-length footboards boast a time-tested, tried-and-true design and rubber isolation for a comfortable ride, while the height-adjustable passenger boards add another level of customizable comfort for your riding partner. And for shifting gears, you can use either the traditional toe-shift or the even easier, more convenient heel-shift. It might take a few rides, but once you've gotten used to the smooth shifting rhythm, you'll never give it up.

2013 Touring Road King® Classic 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 King® Classic 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.

2013 Touring Road King® Classic Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Detachable Windshield

Detachable Windshield

Go from touring to cruising in a heartbeat. Detach the screen for a clean, cool cruising style, or re-attach it in seconds for a clean envelope of air over the long haul. The windshield is as tough as they come—durable, scratch resistant, low maintenance. And whether you choose to have it on off, your Road King® Classic motorcycle rules with a nostalgic style and versatility you can make your own.
