Timeless cruiser styling combined with all the features you need for the long haul. The Road King® motorcycle truly is the king of the road.
The 2014 Harley-Davidson® Road King® model FLHR is powered to perfection with the performance you need for Harley® touring. As part of Project RushMore, for 2014 the Touring Road King® model has been redesigned from the ground up to make the ride better than it's ever been. The Harley® Road King® features a powerful new air-cooled high output Twin Cam 103™ Harley® engine with 6 speed cruise drive transmission, providing more performance power for passing, hill-climbing, and riding with passenger and luggage. The 2014 H-D® Road King® motorcycle features the new Reflex™ anti-lock braking system (ABS) with dynamically, electronically linked brakes for optimum braking in all conditions. There are also all-new gauges and redesigned saddlebags that open easily with one hand. The H-D® Road King® model FLHR has a classic Hiawatha headlamp that is a defining feature of this bike. Big and commanding, the Harley® Road King® model’s headlamp hearkens back to the Big Twins of the 60's. You get nothing less than the latest in materials and technology. The 2014 Road King® motorcycle features a new anti-lock braking system (ABS) with linked brakes provides optimum braking power to each wheel regardless of road conditions.
Key Features May Include:
Project RUSHMORE - Engine
As every rider knows, the engine is at the heart of the experience of riding a motorcycle. The amount of torque and horsepower it delivers over the RPM range is in direct proportion to the feeling it gives you when you roll on the throttle. We know what riders want from a motorcycle engine because we’ve been building them for 110 years. Project RUSHMORE gave us the opportunity to dial it in just right. We conducted thousands of road tests with real riders giving us feedback to build the next iteration of the legendary Harley-Davidson® engine.
Project RUSHMORE - Confidence
Here are some of the innovations The Rider Project led to: the new Reflex™ Linked Brakes with Anti-lock Braking System. New dual halogen and LED headlamps and fog lamps, brighter Tour-Pak® lighting, brighter turn signals, brighter brake lights, and a new steering head with stiffer front forks. Locked-up tires are now history even when there’s wet pavement. We’ve made it feel even better to lean your way through a turn. Now you can see better. And we’ve made you more conspicuous to the cage-driving public.
Project RUSHMORE - Styling
Project RUSHMORE is the journey we set out on to take our touring motorcycles to places never imagined before – to turn all the possibilities for what a motorcycle can be now into true Milwaukee steel. We did it our way, as we’ve always done. As riders. Riding with other riders. Thousand of hours, countless road tests, millions of miles. Looking for the technology and innovations that truly make the ride better. We went over the bike fender tip to fender tip. Making it work better. Making it look sleeker. Modern. Clean. Tight.
Project RUSHMORE - Comfort
The comfort of our machines has been dialed in the hard way: Over 110 years and thousands of miles in all kinds of conditions on every kind of street, road and highway ever laid down in pavement.
Project RUSHMORE - Convenience
If you want the ride to be truly epic, you have to sweat bullets to make the little things work exactly right. This is what Project RUSHMORE was all about. Now you have saddlebags that can be easily opened with one hand. Compartments that open with one touch. And we’ve increased the storage space on these new machines without ruining the sleek, road-eating look of the bike.
