2008 Harley-Davidson Ultra Classic® Electra Glide®

Ultra Classic® Electra Glide®

ONLY 105 YEARS OF HARLEY-DAVIDSON COULD TAKE IT THIS FAR. The top of the line, all wrapped up in stunning new Anniversary style. Like every Touring model, the Ultra Classic® gets the most out of a new longer-ranging six-gallon tank, with added miles of comfort in the seat plus new Brembo® brakes and our optional anti-lock (ABS) technology. Choose the Anniversary Ultra Classic® and ABS comes standard. The Touring ride is smoother than ever for 2008, thanks to a new rear Isolated Drive System (IDS). It improves ride quality by reducing drive line noise. Ultra Classic® riders get even more comfort with a full fairing and vented lowers, plus new fairing-mounted adjustable wind deflectors. There is a King Tour Pak® and GTX-nylon saddlebags. Cruise control. Harman/Kardon® Advanced Audio System and CB/Intercom. And making its own sweet music, a chromed six-speed Twin Cam 96™ engine, proudly exposed for all the world to admire.
