Harley Davidson Sport Glide 2019 review

In 2019, Harley Davidson has given the Softail family a new gem : the Harley Davidson Sport Glide.

Where can we start…this motorcycle is just beautiful. Available in 4 colors, vivid black, color, custom color or two tone custom color, The new 2019 Sport Glide brings a nice sporty design to the Softail family.

The Sport Glide is an update of the previous FXRT family with an improved double cradle frame and cast aluminium swingarm giving this pure sporty look.

The small fairing looks at first quite questionnable but it actually gives a really nice recognizable style. Add to this the Mantis aluminium rims and other small details whether it is chrome or the black finish on the exhaust.

But most importantly, over style and design is also confort and performance:

There has been a huge improve with the engine, allowing you to get big twin sensations without having to many vibrations. The 107 Milwaukee-Eight engine delivers 1745cc and trust us,  that’s enough to feel this motorcycle’s vibe. Wether you roam in cities or hit the road in the countryside, this motorcycle will give you a maximum of sensations.

Talking about sensations, forget vibrations because another very good point on this motorcycle is that thanks to this new engine, riding the Sport Glide has become quite confortable. The Sport Glide is equipped with a single cartidge 43mm inverted front fork allowing to improve the ride.

Convenientwise, the rigid bags, that look nice by the way, can be very easily removed if needed, as well as the fairing if you fancy rocking another pure type of look.

Also, the Sport Glide rider will notice  the effort put in reducing the heet delivered by the Milwaukee-Eight 107 engine, giving more confort to both the rider and the passenger.

 

If we had to list the 3 main upgrades on this 2019 Sport Glide review, it would be:

  • A new sporty frame
  • The inverted front fork
  • The Milwaukle eight 107 engine and the virbation reduction
