The 2013 Harley-Davidson Trike, more formally known as the Tri Glide Ultra Classic, is a trike riders dream. Of course, no motorcycle or trike fan needs to be told the significance of the Harley-Davidson name, but the Harley-Davidson Tri Glide Ultra Classic has to be seen to be truly appreciated.
The Harley-Davidson Trike is designed to match the same exacting standards of its legendary motorcycles. That means a sleek, classic design with matching paint from rear to front, a design that emphasizes both power and comfort, and the combination of room, space, stability and power you expect from a top of the line trike. For a little extra cash, you can get the 2013 Harley-Davidson Tri Glide Ultra Classic 110th anniversary edition, which features special features like special anniversary paint styling, medallion, and finishes.
The Harley-Davidson trike’s Twin Cam 103 air-cooled engine features lightweight piston design and is linked to Harley-Davidson’s trademark Six-Speed Cruise Drive transmission for easy shifting, smooth acceleration, and a comfortable ride. The high torque and power in this engine allows you to haul a bunch of cargo, tackle an incline, or pass cars on the highway as easily as you cruise down a country road. The Tri Glide Ultra Classic provides that signature Harley sound as you shift into high gear, but you’ll know you’re in total control as you eat up the road. Stability is increased and vibration minimized with the Harley-Davidson trike’s four-point engine isolation system.
One of the advantages of a trike is that you can trick it out with some luxury features that you might not normally see in a motorcycle, and Harley-Davidson has taken full advantage of this fact with the Tri-Glide Ultra Classic. 2013 Harley-Davidson Trike owners enjoy a four speaker premium Harman/Kardon Audio System that allows riders to blast AM/FM stereo, CDs and MP3s, as well as providing use of a CB radio and an intercom. The Cruise Control feature allows you to relax and focus on enjoying the ride, while handlebar mounted controls provide easy and comfortable access not only to lights, horn and other features, but to electric reverse, to make backing up as easy as can be. There’s an optional security fob (standard on the anniversary edition), that activates or deactivates electronic security features as you approach or leave the bike. Additional goodies Harley-Davidson offers that might interest you can be easily added on with the hidden but easily accessible accessory connector. In addition, self-canceling turn signals detect the motion of the trike to determine how long turn signals need to be enabled. All of the wires that make these features work are expertly hidden away and do not at all interfere with the look or design of the trike.
Trikes are designed to be more stable and comfortable than a traditional motorcycle, and Harley-Davidson really delivers on this score, with a chassis that expertly handles the weight of the vehicle and the various forces that the driver will bring to play on it. The long, raked fork with steering damper maximizes steering to keep you in total control at all times, and the dual disc front and rear brakes help you keep all the power under total control as well.
This trike features an extremely comfortable 2-up seat with a passenger backrest so both driver and passenger can ride for hours in comfort, and the handlebars are perfectly positioned to keep you comfortable in the driver’s seat as well. If you’re looking for your next great new trike or you’ve never ridden a trike before and want to start with one of the best, try getting yourself behind the handlebars of a 2013 Harley-Davidson Tri Glide Ultra Classic.
