Everything you ever wanted in a big, luxurious touring motorcycle – now with just a little bit more. The Ultra Classic® Electra Glide® model provides the ultimate in touring comfort and performance. An 80-watt/amplifier, Harman/Kardon® Advanced Audio System. Vented lower fairings with integrated storage compartments. Luxurious comfort-stitch Touring saddle and passenger backrest. The smooth-shifting 6-Speed Cruise Drive™ transmission. And much more.
Plus, for 2008, the Ultra Classic Electra Glide model is available with factory-installed Brembo® brakes, with optional ABS. A six-gallon gas tank and adjustable right and left fairing-mounted air deflectors are also new for 2008. The best part is, it all comes standard with the undeniable sound and feel of the Twin Cam 96™ engine. In other words, it’s 100 percent Harley-Davidson.

Looks almost the same as my '95 model (which looks like a '65 model). Talk about staying with what works.

I take offense to the "100% HD thing" when speaking about the engine. I thought my v-rod was 100% HD as well. Guess not.........

The dealer here in Orlando was confident that 2012 would bring the v-rod bagger. I am sure he knows for sure, right. Dealers don't lie?????

Same price too I'll bet. Seriously, if I want a Harman-Kardon stereo, ABS brakes, airconditioning louvers, and cruise control, and a 6speed tranny, I'd buy a Chrysler 300C and save $10,000:broke:

Oh, don't get your panties in a twist. 100% HD is probably listed in the 2008 V-Rod info as well.

Puulleezzzseeeee stop putting the Name of my bike with the word bagger after it. If anything you guys will get a Ultra with a Revolution engine, Vrod aint got no BAGS. What would you call a Fat Boy with bags? A Glide maybe.

Uh oh I ma gunna get shite for being negative again.

You could save almost 10k and get a Goldwing. More power, better ride, and a whole lot more do-dads and gizmos ta boot!
