The 2024 Harley-Davidson® Heritage Classic is a quintessential American cruiser, boasting vintage details and a rock ‘n’ roll style that turns heads. It combines nostalgic design with modern performance, making it a standout choice for riders who appreciate classic aesthetics with contemporary capabilities. The 2024 Harley-Davidson® Heritage Classic features an upright riding position, floorboards, a passenger seat, saddlebags, and a detachable windshield.

Under the hood, the 2024 Harley-Davidson® Heritage Classic is powered by the Milwaukee-Eight® 114 engine, delivering loads of torque and the iconic H-D® rumble. This engine provides on-demand power, making it perfect for both leisurely cruises and spirited rides. The high-performance rear mono shock is easily adjustable and enhances dynamic cornering while maintaining the classic hardtail look. This feature ensures a smooth and comfortable ride, whether you’re navigating city streets or winding country roads.

The detachable windscreen allows for versatility, enabling you to leave it on for long hauls to reduce wind fatigue or remove it for a more open and raw riding experience.

On the other hand, the 2024 Road King® blends timeless style with modern touring capabilities. Known for its versatility and classic design, the 2024 Road King® is a favorite among riders who seek both performance and tradition. It features an upright riding position, floorboards, a passenger seat, saddlebags, and a fork-mounted fairing.

Like the 2024 Harley-Davidson® Heritage Classic, the 2024 Road King® is equipped with the Milwaukee-Eight® 114 engine, delivering smooth, powerful performance suitable for long-distance touring and daily commuting alike. The 2024 Road King® includes advanced safety features like the Reflex™ Defensive Rider Systems (RDRS), which enhance control and confidence in various riding conditions.
