As anyone who’s ridden one will tell you, a Harley-Davidson® touring rig always makes the road good. This year, it makes the road even better. All models get a reduced-effort clutch, a 50-amp charging system and more passenger room. And for the first time ever, H-D® custom paint is available on select touring bikes. Stunning new color combos are sure to treat the eyes right. For 2006, the ears are in for a special treat, too. On all radio-equipped models, riders will be greeted with a new Advanced Audio System by Harman/Kardon® designed to Harley-Davidson specifications. New speakers, AM/FM/WB/CD/MP3 and up to 80 watts of power. It’s sound you’ve never before heard on a motorcycle. What’s more, it offers greater versatility than most car audio systems. Through Genuine Motor Parts and Accessories, you can add XM satellite radio, a 160-watt amplifier, and even a CB radio. All can be integrated right into the stereo. So what’s holding you back? There’s an entire continent out there waiting to be explored. The Road King® Custom arrives on the scene with the power and style of a traveling rock-and-roll show, drawing fans from all over. No one can resist a glimpse of the swept-back chrome visor atop pullback beach bars. It’s styling as only Harley-Davidson can push it. Clean leather bags with hidden supports and latches. Electro-formed, chromed metal fuel tank emblems. Streamlined floorboards and passenger pegs. Tank-mounted stretched chrome console. The sweet sounds of a Twin Cam 88® powertrain. And with the Custom’s smooth-riding, refined chassis and lowered air-adjustable rear suspension, this is definitely one show that always hits the road in style.
