2006 Harley-Davidson Street Glide Base

Intro

When you""re driving down the road on a 2006 Harley-Davidson Street Glide, it can be hard to do so without having a little bit of an attitude. After all, the newly-redesigned 2006 Street Glide is lower, leaner, lighter, and cleaner than previous incarnations, as well as the rest of Harley-Davidson""s Glide family.

The Harley-Davidson Street Glide has several new touches and finishes that give it a custom look right out of the showroom, without sacrificing comfort or simplicity. From aesthetic improvements like the bike""s diamond-cut nameplate and smoked-chrome emblem, to functional improvements like its Streamliner floorboards and brand new low-effort clutch, the 2006 Harley-Davidson Street Glide is one bike that proves less is more.

The powerplant that delivers all of the rumbly fun is Harley-Davidson""s popular 1450cc, V-Twin, Twin-Cam 88. But, while the engine may be nice and loud, it""s installed with vibration-isolating rubber mounts, so the rider doesn""t have to worry about all of that rumbling goodness vibrating up into his or her bones. This greatly reduces rider fatigue, and allows for more time being spent on the road.

The 2006 Harley-Davidson Street Glide comes with several rider-friendly features that are designed to improve rider comfort, and general driving enjoyment. It has a large, bat-wing, fork-mounted fairing with a smoked mini wind deflector, which helps protect the rider from highway-induced winds. The bike also features a newly designed custom leather bucket seat with perforated insert for superior comfort, spacious Streamliner footboards, brake pedal, and passenger pegs for improved driver and passenger ergonomics, a convenient on-board 50 amp/650 watt charging system, and a luxurious 40-watt Harman/Kardon audio system so you can enjoy your favorite tunes while cruising the back-roads of America.

But despite all of its luxurious accompaniments, the true allure of the 2006 Harley-Davidson Street Glide is its functionality. Everything on the bike is primed and ready to go. The bike has a velvety-smooth air-adjustable rear suspension, classically inspired full fenders, covered fork tubes, engine and saddlebag guards, and extensive chrome-trimmed instrumentation. Up front, the huge round headlight makes a bold statement, while the slotted black cast wheels and slash-down mufflers give the bike a groovy super-low profile.

The 2006 Street Glide also boasts an exterior that""s classic Harley-Davidson. Tons of chrome and a best-in-class paint job are as expected, while the new rear fender ground effects with tri-line LED lighting, new low-hung license plate mount with hidden plate illuminator, and the color-matched latches on the cavernous GTX nylon hard saddlebags only add to the already gorgeous design of the bike.
