Drawing inspiration from its very own Street Glide and Tri Glide models, Harley-Davidson has come up with its second production trike, the 2010 Street Glide Trike. Lighter, more compact and benefiting of the same quality built and reliable performance, this new model takes production trikes to a whole new level and also shows how satisfied was the American Company with their first trike, the Tri Glide Ultra Classic. Both models are now being produced in parallel.
NEW STREET GLIDE® TRIKE IS A HOT-ROD ON THREE WHEELS
Second Model Joins Tri Glide™ Ultra Classic® on Harley-Davidson® Trike Platform
Harley-Davidson will offer two models on its three-wheel Trike motorcycle platform for 2010, as the new Street Glide Trike joins the Tri Glide Ultra Classic. As its name implies, the Street Glide Trike brings the lean, stripped-down, hot-rod styling of the two-wheeled Street Glide model to the three-wheel category. With a smoked mini wind deflector and no Tour-Pak® luggage carrier, the Street Glide Trike is lighter and more compact than the Tri Glide Ultra Classic.
With its Trike platform, Harley-Davidson brings original-equipment design, quality and service to the three-wheel motorcycle segment. Both Trike models utilize a frame and associated chassis structure and geometry engineered specifically to handle the loads generated by the steering forces and weight of a three-wheel vehicle. The rear-axle assembly utilizes an aluminum center section with steel axle tubes. Dual front disc brakes are complemented by a Hayes Brake dual-disc rear brake system with a lever-actuated, integrated parking brake.
Both the Street Glide Trike and the Tri Glide Ultra Classic models are powered by a rubber-mounted, Twin Cam 103™ V-Twin engine with Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI), rated at 101 ft. lbs. of torque. The 6-speed Cruise Drive® transmission features a new helical-cut fifth gear. An optional electric reverse ($1,195) is integrated with the rear differential assembly and engaged with a handlebar-mounted control with LED indicator.
The molded-composite Trike bodywork is a perfect color match for the tank and front fender. Because the rear fenders are each a separate piece from the rest of the rear bodywork, they can be removed individually for repair, replacement or service. The trunk provides 4.3 cubic feet of storage space and 50-pound capacity. Matching black and machined split seven-spoke cast aluminum wheels provide an integrated, factory-built look.
