Classic Fuel Tank

Harley-Davidson FLHTK Electra Glide Ultra Limited

Part of the unmistakable style of the Harley-Davidson® Electra Glide® Ultra Limited 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 run the length of the bike and special Harley-Davidson® tank medallions give this ride a one-of-a-kind look.

Bat-Wing Fairing

Designed by Chief Styling Officer Willie G. Davidson, the nimble, fork-mounted Bat-Wing fairing first appeared on the touring scene back in 1969. And it continues to evolve and symbolize the essence of Grand American Touring motorcycles more than forty years later. The full 8-inch windscreen gives it that classic touring profile and additional comfort. Simply put, the wind is not a factor for the mile-hungry rider who wants to soak up the freedom of the open road for days on end.

GTX Saddlebags and Tour-Pak

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 chrome 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. The premium Tour-Pak® luggage carrier is an extra perk, adding to the luxury look and giving you even more space to pack stuff for the road. And we add another layer to the mix with exclusive Harley-Davidson® saddlebag and Tour-Pak® liners. Dual-direction zippers for more access. Side pockets for your quick-reach items like cell phones, keys and toll money. Rubber bottoms that keep the insides dry and clean, and d-rings let you clip on attachments and shoulder straps for easy transport. This is "limited edition" without limits.

Large 17-Inch Front Wheel

Harley-Davidson FLHTK Electra Glide Ultra Limited

If you crave long-haul agility on rides of all distances, you’re going to love this. We beefed things up by 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.

Titanium Face Gauges

Adding to the rich, custom look of your Electra Glide® Ultra Limited dash are the black and icy cool titanium-colored numbered gauges. White LED backlighting and large, easy-to-read numbers provide at-a-glance viewing while eating up miles of road. Premium and exclusive, these gauges are a must-have.

28-Spoke Contrast Chrome Wheels

Harley-Davidson FLHTK Electra Glide Ultra Limited

Premium chrome. Distinctive custom style. These meticulously polished and chrome-plated 28-spoke wheels cast glowing reflections, even while standing still. The process of finishing these wheels is revolutionary, the only way we do things at The Motor Company. Painted gloss black, machined and polished, and then, the exposed surfaces are plated for a brilliant contrast.

Special Identifier Medallions

This isn’t just any Touring bike, it’s the Electra Glide® Ultra Limited model. It’s built to boast, and boast it does with sleek, chromed medallions on the front fender and gas tank. And if that’s not quite enough, we fastened one more special identifier medallion on the Tour-Pak® in back for good measure.

Premium Paint

Up to two times thicker than the competition, custom quality paint comes standard on all Harley-Davidson® motorcycles. Clearcoat layering up to five mils deep. Bigger metal flakes. New for 2011, a striking vivid black finish that looks sinister and demands your attention on the road. When it comes to paint, skimping simply is not in our vocabulary.

Hand Finished Fuel Tank

All Harley-Davidson® fuel tanks are finished by hand—that’s what makes them stand out from the competition. Their seamless design and unmatched style are unique among all motorcycles on the road. The tanks are one of the first and last things people notice when they lay their eyes on a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle—so we make it worth their time.

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.

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.

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.

Six-Speed Cruise Drive®

Harley-Davidson FLHTK Electra Glide Ultra Limited

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.

Four-Point Engine Isolation System

Just get that Big Twin idling and feel the difference—there’s almost nothing to feel. Our four-point rubber engine isolation system perfects the delicate balance of shake, rattle and ride, keeping the powerful engine’s vibrations from getting to you, for a smooth, comfortable ride mile after mile.

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.

Harman/Kardon® Advanced Audio System

Naturally, the king of the road gets some royal extras. The premium four-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, CD and MP3 player, four speakers—even an intercom and CB. When it comes to hearing your tunes over the roar of the road or just keeping your own chatter free and easy, this system has it all.

Tour-Pak®-Mounted 12V Power Supply

No limits. Only horizons. That’s the feeling of a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle. But you may have a few gadgets that disagree. Whether you need a quick charge for your cell phone or power to blow up an air mattress on a lonely stretch of road, knowing you’ve got 15 amps of power to get through the day or night goes a long way. And don’t worry about pesky rain spoiling your power supply—the spring-loaded cap keeps the receptor dry and free of road muck.

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.

Cruise Control

If you’re ready to take Touring to the next level, the standard cruise control 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.

Anti-Lock Brakes

Harley-Davidson FLHTK Electra Glide Ultra Limited

When it comes to the Electra Glide® Ultra Limited 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.

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® motorcycle unique.

Artfully Hidden Technology

Harley-Davidson leverages the latest in technology without compromising style and function. That means we hide electronics. The whole wiring harness is skillfully routed behind the jewels of the bike—the tank, engine and all the other eye-popping features you want to see. It’s just another way The Motor Company goes the extra mile to give its bikes that premium, top-of-the-line fit and finish.

Intuitive Controls

Hand controls on a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle are incredibly intuitive. The turn signals are self-canceling and, based on the speed and angle of the motorcycle, they know how long to stay on. Engaging the controls quickly becomes second nature so you can focus less on turning off your signal and more on basking in the freedom of the ride.

Dunlop® Multi-Tread™ Tires

The 180mm back tire does 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.

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.

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.

Frame and Swingarm

Change everything. Lose nothing. Our complete redesign of the frame and swingarm has only been around since 2009, and it’s already changing the game entirely. Stamped and welded parts and bent tubing were ditched for strong castings and forgings—just like the legendary Harley-Davidson frames of years past. The result is a frame that rides rigid and owns the corners. The acceleration is strong. The ride is tight and responsive. And the feel on the road is confidence inspiring.

Legendary Low Speed Maneuverability

At The Motor Company, we believe you don’t make innovative, next-generation Touring motorcycles without shedding a little blood, sweat and tears. And when you get it right—like with the low speed maneuverability on our Touring models—all the other upgrades in the ride just combine to create a big-boned bike that is light and nimble while carving up tight turns or if you find yourself riding in a parade or group ride.

Tuned to Be Ridden

Harley-Davidson® motorcycles are different than any other bike out on the road. There’s a balance to them. The steering, the maneuverability—it’s all in concert. And each Harley-Davidson® model is tuned differently to create a unique riding experience for each individual no matter which bike they swing their leg over. Let’s face it, we didn’t get to where we are by being like everyone else.

Heated Hand Grips

Harley-Davidson FLHTK Electra Glide Ultra Limited

When the chill gets at you, just having a little heat would be nice enough. But this is a Harley-Davidson®, motorcycle and we’re all about the details. Our heated handgrips have six settings, so you can easily adjust on the fly for the heat you need with the versatility and control you come to depend on.

Vented Fairing Lowers

Don’t be a prisoner to the elements outside—take control of your ride with the color-matched fairing lowers on the Electra Glide® Ultra Limited model. Pop them off for a cooler ride or leave them fixed to fight the wind tooth and nail. When it comes to Touring, Harley-Davidson is all about optimal comfort every time you hunt down a horizon.

Two-Up Seating with Passenger Backrest

A classic feature with a contemporary look and comfortable feel—without sacrificing an ounce of nostalgic style. Sculpted with a deep bucket and narrow neck, this ultimate Touring saddle relieves pressure on your thighs, while providing more back support and comfort for a wide variety of rider sizes. And the low seat 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.

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.

Wide Set Handlebar

Classic style and maximum comfort. That’s the perfect balance of the wide set handlebars that come standard on the Electra Glide® Ultra Limited 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.

2-1-2 Exhaust

Welcome to the crossroads of pure Harley-Davidson style and smart engineering. The 2-1-2 exhaust helps direct heat away from the rider and passenger, while providing ample performance, and signature Harley-Davidson rumble, and big style.

Engine Idle Temperature Management Strategy

Our motorcycles are built to be ridden. A lot. So that means that rider comfort is top of mind. Always. With the Engine Idle Temperature Management Strategy (EITMS) feature, the motorcycle automatically cuts fuel and fire from the rear cylinder when idling, which helps reduce engine heat felt by rider and passenger. Best part, you can easily turn this feature on or off yourself whenever the bike is stopped.

Seat Engineering and Design

The seat is home for Harley-Davidson® motorcycle riders. They want a seat that has unique style without sacrificing comfort. Because of that, Harley-Davidson invests a lot of time in researching, designing and testing seats so that every bike has just the right saddle.
