2010 Harley-Davidson Road King Base


The 2010 Harley-Davidson FLHR Road King is a classic touring model. Stripped down as a tourer and beefed up as a cruiser, the 2010 Road King possesses the classic Harley-Davidson lines, chrome, and signature sound, while marrying the riding styles of a Fat Boy with that of a Heritage Classic.

Classified as a touring model by Harley-Davidson, there are many enthusiasts who would simply consider it an incredibly comfortable and capable cruiser. One thing is for certain: this bike is all muscle, and weighs in at over 800 lbs. wet. While it may be considered a very versatile motorcycle, the 2010 Harley-Davidson Road King is definitely not considered a good option for a beginner or novice rider.

This 2010 Harley Bagger is marked with impressive styling, a removable windshield, and a base model that is begging for customized accessories. The saddlebags are offered in a couple different styles. The premium model/trim is found on the FLHRC or Road King Classic. Hard, durable bags come standard on both models, serving as a classic touring foundation. Riders can add storage space via luggage attachments, lock a backrest in behind the operator seat, and add a sissy bar on the passenger seat if riding tandem. When fully geared, this bike will be ready for long journeys on the open road.

Harley-Davidson tested the 2010 Road King model at 54mpg highway, but realistically, riders will enjoy something more in the neighborhood of 45mpg. Perhaps with a nice draft and long flat stretches, the 6 gallon tank would easily offer 300-plus miles. Most often, each tank of fuel will get closer to 250.

The lines of this bike suggest classic Harley cruiser. It is devoid of the front fairing synonymous with touring models offered by Harley-Davidson, as well as its competitors. The chassis runs low and wide, with beefy, white-wall tires on spoke wheels. It doesn't possess the flash of the Harley-Davidson Softail Classic, but it still manages to shine and turns heads. Perhaps this is the ideal model for Harley-Davidson enthusiasts who care for little more than riding their motorcycle.

The signature Harley-Davidson sound comes from a duel exhaust, which stretches past both sides of the rear wheel, and beneath the saddlebags/panniers. This exhaust can be customized and made to look and sound as rich, throaty, or obnoxiously loud as desired. Another notable feature is the easily removable windshield. Within a few minutes, this bike can go from sleek tourer, to beastly cruiser.
