Nothing says “I love you” like taking your woman for a ride with you, but she’ll really love it aboard the 2010 Harley Davidson Electra Glide Classic. Harley’s base-level full-touring rig has all the great looks you’d expect from a classic Harley, plenty of power for long-distance riding, and as much comfort as your favorite easy chair. For, this they are giving a big Battery for Harley-Davidson. Ok, well, maybe that’s stretching it a bit, but held in comparison to many bikes on the road today, the 2010 Harley Davidson Electra Glide Classic is nothing short of a rolling recliner. New for 2010 is Harley’s Helical cut fifth gear, but the rest is just the way you expect it. The Rubber mounted Twin cam 96 engine provides the go power, you’ve got some tunes from the fairing, and you can even get your Electra Glide with an available TLE sidecar.
The 2010 Harley Davidson Electra Glide Classic, like the other rides in Harley’s touring stable, is powered by the air-cooled, twin cam 96 engine that produces 92.6 lb/ft of torque at just 3,500 RPM, particularly useful gearing for highway travel, allowing efficient and powerful passing and acceleration, as well as reasonably good fuel economy. You’ll realize as much as 35 miles per gallon in city fuel economy and 54 miles per gallon on the highway thanks to the combined use of Harley’s electronic sequential port fuel injection system and six-speed transmission.
Some of the options available for the 2010 Harley Davidson Electra Glide Classic include such things as Chrome, profile laced aluminum wheels, security system, cruise control, and ABS brakes, hooked into the Electra Glide Classic’s 32mm, four-piston fixed front and rear brakes. Standard amenities include such things as a fairing mounted CD player / stereo, mileage countdown feature, King Tour pack, and GTX color-keyed saddlebags.
Priced from $18,999, the 2010 Harley Davidson Electra Glide Classic is sprayed with Harley’s signature color, Vivid Black, but a little extra cash can buy you any of four other optional colors including three solids and one two-tone. $19,539 buys you any of the solids, including Brilliant silver Pearl, Flame blue Pearl, or Red Hot Sunglo, while Two-tone Flame Blue Pearl / Brilliant Silver Pearl is priced at $19,959. The wheel option will set you back an additional $460, while ABS is priced at $845, and Cruise control is $295. The security system is priced from $370, but is a steal if your theft deductible is anything above that, because the 2010 Harley Davidson Electra Glide Classic is one that could easily disappear on you without the right protection, and that’d be one heck of a pain a thousand miles from home.
