Harley-Davidson® of New Port Richey - 2024 Harley-Davidson® Street Glide® vs. 2024 Road Glide®: Choosing Your Perfect Riding Companion

When it comes to selecting the perfect touring bike for your Homosassa adventures, the 2024 Harley-Davidson® Street Glide® and the 2024 Road Glide® are both exceptional choices. Each model offers unique features tailored to different riding styles and preferences.

The 2024 Harley-Davidson® Street Glide® is the original cross-country touring machine, designed for long-haul comfort and performance. It features an upright riding position, a fork-mounted batwing fairing, a passenger seat, saddlebags, and floorboards. The infotainment system and standard rider safety enhancements further enhance the riding experience. The iconic batwing fairing on the 2024 Harley-Davidson® Street Glide® now features a sculpted silhouette, fully integrated LED lighting, and a split-stream vent opening. Using computational fluid dynamics (CFD), the fairing is designed to optimize aerodynamic efficiency and enhance rider comfort. The full LED lighting package increases visibility, integrates turn signals, and accentuates the lines of the fairing, creating a distinctive look that is instantly recognizable, day or night.

The 2024 Harley-Davidson® Street Glide® is powered by the Milwaukee-Eight® 117 V-Twin engine. This engine delivers increased displacement, torque, and horsepower. The liquid-cooled cylinder heads optimize thermal comfort, especially in low-speed riding and hot weather. The new windshield and fairing, developed using CFD and wind tunnel analysis, help reduce wind buffeting and rider fatigue, while adjustable air vanes tune airflow to enhance comfort. Innovation is another hallmark of this bike model. The available ride modes (Road, Sport, Rain, Custom) provide more control and confidence during various riding conditions by electronically adjusting performance characteristics and the level of safety technology intervention. The 12.3-inch TFT display, a crystal-clear, touch-screen color display, puts infotainment and embedded navigation at your fingertips.

In contrast, the 2024 Road Glide® offers a different approach to touring with its distinctive sharknose fairing, mounted on the frame rather than the forks. This design provides a unique look and helps reduce wind buffeting by keeping the fairing more stable, improving rider comfort on long rides. The 2024 Road Glide® also features full LED lighting, ensuring optimal visibility and a striking appearance both day and night.

For long stretches of open road, the 2024 Road Glide® offers a premium audio experience with its Boom!™ Box GTS infotainment system. This advanced system includes a touchscreen interface, Bluetooth connectivity, and voice recognition, ensuring an exceptional audio experience and seamless user interaction.

Both the 2024 Harley-Davidson® Street Glide® and the 2024 Road Glide® offer exceptional features and capabilities for your Homosassa adventures. Whether you prefer the iconic batwing fairing of the 2024 Harley-Davidson® Street Glide® or the distinctive sharknose fairing of the 2024 Road Glide®, both models promise an unforgettable riding experience.
