Looks of the Harley-Davidson FLHX Street Glide
To simply put, the HD FLHX Street Glide is a custom bagger and really looks like a mean machine to say the least. The bike maker deserves all appreciation for making it look so adorable reconciling all the good looks of the previous Glide versions. HD walked through the line of fashion and functionality and looks like they have complied with both. A single glance is just not sufficient to admire and appreciate the vast beauty this beast boasts.

However, the most attractive features of bike are: lowered rear suspension tainted mini-wind screen, bat wing fairing and the list will go on. But one cannot rule out the fact that the HD FLHX Street Glide is much more than just one good-looking HD machine.

Engine performance and handling of the Harley-Davidson FLHX Street Glide
The HD FLHX Street Glide is powered by a Twin Cam 96, 1584cc, V2, 4-stroke, fuel-injected engine and gives a maximum torque of 131Nm @ 3500rpm. The 6-speed cruise dive transmission and the active intake & exhaust system reduce the clutch lever effort especially while cruising the streets and the bike is found to be pretty nimble at curves.

Looks like the world famous auto maker, Harley-Davidson has decided to enter into 21st-century world of biking with better brake system by having its most of the models, 4-piston fixed-mount front brake callipers replacing the 1-piston floating calipers. This makes handling the big machines a lot better than imagined. Besides, the new frame and the swing arm thingy in the HD FLHX makes handling lot easier than earlier Street Glide versions.

The handlebars and the wide tyres offer great grip and the controls are well placed and can be easily spotted, which overall gives a comfortable riding position, and the audio controls can be easily located even while riding the machine.

Pricing of Harley-Davidson FLHX Street Glide
Continuing the same pricing legacy of the Harleys, the HD FLHX Street Glide comes with almost all amenities you require while touring and precisely that is why the bike is on the higher price range- Rs. 21,95,000.

Last word about HD FLHX Street Glide

It outscores other bike models when it comes to handling and comfort in this class. The HD FLHX Street Glide is the most suitable HD bike for all those ardent leisure travellers who look for luxurious features when on the move for long expeditions.
