Redesigned Softail® Frame
The Sport Glide is the latest addition to the Softail® family so you’ll get all the best parts of owning Softail right from the start. The Softail frame is a favorite amongst Harley-Davidson® motorcycle riders because of its unique style and exceptional performance. It relies on the singular Softail hidden monoshock rear suspension, which means it provides better handling along cleaner lines. But the Sport Glide takes this special frame to the next level. It’s 34% stiffer than previous chasses and substantially lighter. This makes the Sport Glide more responsive and exercises better control over harder lines and sharper edges. It also comes equipped with high-performance suspension you’ll need when you want to add a little bit of extra luggage to your bike. This means you won’t lose the quality of performance, even when you need extra cargo on such a lightweight bike.

Milwaukee-Eight® Engine
A brand new bike deserves a brand new engine. The Sport Glide is powered by the all-new Milwaukee-Eight® 107 engine, Harley-Davidson’s greatest feat of engineering yet. With over a century of experience fueling the design, the Milwaukee-Eight 107 provides out of this world torque. This electronically fuel injected V-Twin engine also gives you faster 0-60 mph and 60-80 mph than its predecessors. The engine is also counterbalanced for low vibration, which will prevent you from chattering your teeth too hard. Don’t worry, though, you’ll still get the signature Harley® purr. And even though it’s packing insane power, the Milwaukee-Eight 107 has been streamlined to fit the sleek frame of the Sport Glide.

Touring Ready
But we know you’re really interested in the whole reason we made the Sport Glide. With such a versatile world these days, Harley-Davidson has answered the call to create a bike that is as adaptive as its rider. Whether you need to head to work or start your next big adventure, the Sport Glide is equipped to help you get there. The lightweight makes it ideal for cruising, but it also makes it more agile while touring and easier to handle on the open road. The low-vibration of the Milwaukee-Eight 107 engine keeps your ride smooth and the mini-fairings keep the onslaught of highway winds from tiring you out. And for any additional baggage you may need for the day or for the week, the Sport Glide comes with hard-side locking saddlebags to keep it all secure and out of sight. If you need to drop a few pounds to make cruising easier, the saddlebags and the mini-fairings are removable. Whatever you need from the Sport Glide, it can give it to you.

Technology with Style
We’re not done yet. The Sport Glide comes equipped with the latest in motorcycle technology, including the LED forward-lighting system and keyless ignition. It also has the best in styling touches, like blacked out Milwaukee-Eight 107 engine, blacked out mufflers, and Mantis cast aluminum wheels. A modern bike for the modern rider deserves a modern look so Harley-Davidson made sure to give it to you.

The Sport Glide is Harley-Davidson’s latest success in the Softail line and here at War Horse Harley-Davidson®, we’re excited to present it to you. We’re positive that if you’re looking for a bike that can do a little bit of everything, you’ll really love the Sport Glide®, so stop by today and have a look at the bike in person or take it for a spin. We’re located in Ocala, Florida, serving the areas of Belleview, Summerfield, Silver Springs, and Jacksonville.
