Harley-Davidson has been manufacturing and selling Street Glide motorcycles for over a decade now and they are without a doubt one of the most popular models. Big motor. Great profile. All of the amenities you need and some you just want. Reasonably priced.
But the 2017 model year brings a whole new Street Glide to the game and many of the improvements are going unnoticed. If you have been racking up the miles on your 2012 Glide this might be the year to turn her in on a whole new ride.
If you have a trade, why is the difference price important? We'll run you through a few scenarios to help you make sure that you are getting the right deal when negotiating a new (or pre-owned) motorcycle.
The difference price is the total price of the bike, plus dealer fee, sales tax, and licensing (the out the door price, OTD.) minus the equity in your trade.
The Street Bob® motorcycle oozes cool with tough looks that go straight back to the roots of the bobber scene. This model leaves everything exposed and is as “naked” as the law allows. There’s not a part on it that isn’t absolutely necessary, yet it’s also premium in every way.
- The powertrain finish looks basic and black until you study the details…the wrinkle-black rocker covers with polished fins, the polished derby cover and pushrod tubes…this is a premium Harley-Davidson® engine with custom style you’ll really appreciate.
- If you like the nostalgic, bobber style of the Dyna Street Bob motorcycle, then the round air cleaner cover with is retro profile has to be a styling highlight.
Battle of the Glides: Shark nose vs Batwing
Two models of baggers are battling it out for the Most Popular Model award of the 2017 model year. The deciding factor? The style of front fairing. The Batwing Fairing and the Shark Nose Fairing.
A fork-mounted fairing was first available on Electra Glide models in 1969. This became unofficially known as the "batwing" fairing. Although the batwing fairing was an easily removable option on early Electra Glides, over time the instruments were moved into the fairing making it difficult to remove.
A Cafe bike starts with a “less-is-more” philosophy. Stripped of all “unnecessary”accessories, these unburdened motorcycles are lighter, faster and have a hardedged,rebellious look that reflects the rider’s bare-knuckle attitude.
"… the XLCR may be one of the most appealing bikes of the decade, a combination of two of the strongest profiling elements on two wheels — big, thundering Harley-Davidsons and sleek, kinetic-looking cafe racers." — Cycle Guide, July 197
Conceived under the watchful eye of Willie G. Davidson, the iconic 1977-79 XLCR Café Racer model established a new timeless look - and re-creating that bike’s spirit is one of today’s fastest growing customization trends.

Technical manuals vex me. My modest accomplishments include: replacing the motor in a 72 VW Bug in a day, making home made pasta, and changing the diapers of my two children. However, when it comes to the combination of reading/following contemporary manuals and guides, my brain shuts down like an overserved drunkard at 2:00 am. Leaving me with the only question of, “Do human beings actually write these @#! things”?

According to Fred Savage, Styling Manager for the Harley-Davidson Motor Company, the feedback the Motor Company received about the next Street motorcycle was to give it more power, more agility and an urban brawler look. That is exactly what they produced in the XG750A Street Rod.
Engine and Primary Drive
The Street Rod™ (XG750A) is the latest of models introduced by the Harley-Davidson Motor Company for the 2017.5 model year. A new High Output Revolution X™ Engine features enhancements that provide an aggressive riding experience by increasing air flow, engine speed, and compression to deliver more power. H-D engineers were able to pump up the horsepower (18%) and torque (8%) by re-doing the intake ports and adding new high lift cams as well as a dual throttle body*. This results in a consistent build of power as the rider rolls on the throttle. The engine delivers power the rider can feel, maximizing the mid-range torque with a punch between 4,000 and 5,000 RPM. This engine is liquid-cooled which means it maintains cooler temperatures and provides consistent performance and power delivery off the line and on the road.
In 2014 Harley-Davidson made a huge transformation to the touring lineup by introducing a customer-driven effort to fundamentally improve every aspect of the riding experience. Led by extensive customer feedback, this initiative sparked more than 100 changes that were made to the touring line, which were then broken up into four customer-defined categories.
