2013 Harley-Davidson Street Glide Base


The 2013 Harley-Davidson Street Glide is a touring bike built for comfort while riding a short distance on the road or cross county. To accomplish this, Harley-Davidson gave this bike a lower suspension, Touring chassis, rigid backbone frame, and a stout swing arm made to withstand the demands of long-haul touring riders and the powerful bike engines of today.

The 2013 Harley-Davidson Street Glide features a single-spar chassis, a frame with a firm backbone, and a sturdy swingarm to absorb the rough road endured during long rides. To further improve the ride, air-adjustable rear shocks, full-length rider foot boards, and a six-gallon fuel tank were added to allow the bike to go the distance. The 2-1-2 exhaust system directs heat away from the rider and passenger, while providing ample performance and the signature Harley-Davidson rumble. The Street Glide now comes standard with an Air-cooled Twin Cam 103 with Integrated Oil-Cooler that produces nearly 70 horsepower and 100 ft-lb of torque. This is not a large amount of horsepower however this bike is not designed with that in mind. Rather, it is designed to offer a comfortable and enjoyable long distance ride.

Harley-Davidson upgraded and improved upon the original Street Glide to make a bike that is barely noticeable compared to the 2006 model. The changes resulted in a greater load carrying capacity, better handling, a smoother engine, longer range and less exhaust heat transmitted to the rider and passenger.

New For 2013
  • Rubber mounted Twin Cam 103 V-Twin engine with electronic sequential port fuel injection, heated O2 sensors, and electronic throttle control to give a sufficient amount of horsepower and torque for long distance riding.
  • The Touring saddle features a sculpted seat with a lower contoured bucket and narrower neck. This combination of features provides superior back support and relieves pressure off of the rider’s legs.
  • The seat is lowered to 26.1 inches to put the riders feet closer to the road for more control and confidence, dual toe- and heal-shift gears, and a full-length footboard for a more comfortable ride than seen before on Harley-Davidson Touring bikes.
  • Front Brembo Dual Hydraulic discs and a rear Brembo hydraulic disc to provide more than enough braking power for a bike that weighs 811.5 pounds.
  • An air adjustable telescopic front fork and a Twin sided swing arm with rebound damping and a pre-loaded spring adjustable shock gives the rider an extremely comfortable ride that makes a long distance trip more enjoyable that rode on other bikes.
  • The frame and swingarm are made from strong castings and forgings which produce a much more rigid frame to handle hard corner turning, fast acceleration and guarantee a tight and responsive bike.
  • The handle bars have the ultimate balance of style and comfort by having the handles spaced farther apart than most bikes to keep the rider comfortably propped in a position of command while making sure that neck and shoulder muscles are relaxed during long rides.
