The FLHRSE4 Screamin’ Eagle Road King returns to reign over the touring motorcycle realm in 2008 as part of the Harley-Davidson Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) line. This fourth generation in the Screamin’ Eagle Road King family combines an ultimate level of Harley-Davidson styling with a Twin Cam 110 (1800cc) engine, 6-speed Cruise Drive transmission and selected custom accessories, colours and graphics – all making it a true leader among touring motorcycles.
The Screamin’ Eagle Road King is born into royalty as a Harley-Davidson FLHR Road King, which now includes a six-gallon fuel tank and cruise control, primed for long-distance riding. In addition, the Screamin’ Eagle Road King has the new Harley-Davidson Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) as a standard feature. ABS is designed to help you maintain control during braking events, especially those that happen in less than optimum conditions, while the new Isolated Drive System enhances accelerating, cruising and shifting.
The Screamin’ Eagle Road King has the largest-displacement Harley-Davidson production engine, the 110-cubic inch (1800cc) Twin Cam 110, a high-performance V-Twin engine with immense power and torque. For 2008, the Twin Cam 110 displays a new Granite finish. Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI) is standard, along with a custom oil cooler with chrome cover, and chrome cross-over dual exhaust with touring mufflers. The engine is joined to the 6-speed Cruise Drive transmission for lower cruising rpm in top gear.
Among the enhancements to the Screamin’ Eagle® Road King® are a new Electronic Throttle Control technology for adjustment-free riding, and a new riser cover with indicator lights. The new six-gallon/22.7 litre Touring fuel tank, which provides outstanding fuel range, is combined with a new console, gasket and granite coloured emblem with hammered finish. The custom leather seat, backrests and saddlebags receive a new design, while new trim chrome strips flow with the bike on the side covers.
The Screamin’ Eagle Road King will be offered in three exclusive colour combinations: 105th Anniversary Crystal Copper and Black Diamond (serialized models); Twilight Blue and Candy Cobalt with Ghost Flame graphics; and Black Diamond and Silver Dust with Ghost Flame graphics. Frame and swingarm colours are matched with each paint scheme.
