Looks of the Harley-Davidson FLHR Road King
The Harley-Davidson Road King was first launched in 1994, and the styling was the biggest asset of the bike. The newer version has not changed those looks to a great extent. And even a hardcore Road King fan would not complain about the looks whatsoever. In fact, the Road King has its inspiration from the older version but with tweaks and retweaks and addition of features, the older HD Classics look dull and pale.
There is one change that deserves a mention: It is in the chassis, which is entirely new. The HD Road King had awesome looks earlier and continues to maintain the same even now. And the styling of HD FLHR Road King appears second to none.
The hard-leather saddlebags coupled with the tooling and the chrome hardware form standard equipment of the machine and the windshield can easily be detached for those days when you’d like the wind to hit your face. With the beautiful logo of HD FLHR Road King on the big fuel tank, this machine looks enviously beautiful.

The bike is just the same performer even after long tours.
