But without further do, let’s discuss a motorcycle that gets back to basics when it comes to long-distance touring.
Grand American Touring
Harley-Davidson® organizes its motorcycles into families, and all of the models within a family share the same platform. The Grand American Touring family encompasses those H-D® motorcycles that are designed to ride long distances and for long periods at a time, and the Grand America Touring platform is among the most sophisticated touring platforms ever designed. It allows for a great deal of versatility. Tourers cater to a wide range of motorcycle enthusiasts, and Harley-Davidson® makes many different models in order to cater to the many different ways that riders will use them.
Introducing the Electra Glide® Standard
Grand American Touring motorcycles range from stripped-down touring bikes to what are known as full-dress baggers, and the 2022 Harley-Davidson® Electra Glide® Standard near Homosassa is more toward the former end of the range than the latter. This is a tourer that Harley-Davidson® has designed for the purist. It has everything you need and none of what you don’t. If you’re idea of the perfect touring experience involves hitting the open road and being disconnected from your smartphone and other distractions, then the Electra Glide® Standard may be your dream machine.
Performance and Ride Characteristics
The 2022 Harley-Davidson® Electra Glide® Standard near Homosassa is powered by the Milwaukee-Eight® 107 V-Twin engine, and while that isn’t the most powerful engine that the brand makes, it delivers plenty of acceleration and top-end power for the usual touring experience. Notable characteristics include a fork-mounted fairing, a windshield, saddlebags, floorboards and an upright riding position. Rider safety enhancements are not included, but they are available.
This Is the Right Bike For
As Harley-Davidson®’s marketing puts it, the 2022 Harley-Davidson® Electra Glide® Standard near Homosassa is the right bike for the purist who wants to disconnect and enjoy the distance. That is probably the biggest decision right there. Are you all right without a modern infotainment system? It’s not as if you can easily add an infotainment system after the fact. Beyond that, the stripped-down nature of the Electra Glide® Standard is rather compelling since you get tremendous value at a lower price than many other tourers. It also features the traditional chrome aesthetic.
Making It Yours
Some riders prefer the stripped-down nature of the Electra Glide® Standard. Others see it as endless possibilities whether they’re purchasing it for a custom build or as a tourer that they’re going to personalize over time. In either case, there are many options, and Harley-Davidson® of New Port Richey can help with them all. Among the most common upgrades is a seat that accommodates a passenger, and you can also add a tour pack with a passenger backrest. Other options include audio systems, taller windshields, various heated and nonheated grips, different handlebars and so forth. Our location provides you full access to the H-D® catalog and can even install those parts for you.
