Pure street style and long haul comfort made it the #1 motorcycle in the sport. And that was before it got a more powerful engine and countless other improvements.
The 2014 Harley-Davidson® Street Glide® model FLHX is a custom hot-rod bagger with an amazing Harley® style that needs to be seen and ridden. As part of Project RushMore, it's been totally redesigned for 2014 from headlight to taillight to make the look sleek and the touring ride better. The batwing fairing has been totally redesigned to maintain its iconic shape, yet reduce head buffeting. There's a new high output Twin Cam 103™ engine mated to a 6 speed cruise drive transmission that puts more passing, hill climbing and passenger carrying power at your disposal than ever before. The 2014 H-D® Street Glide® motorcycle features the new Reflex™ anti-lock braking system (ABS) with dynamically, electronically linked brakes for optimum braking in all conditions. The 2014 Street Glide® has redesigned saddlebags for a sleeker look and reinvented latches that you can operate with one hand. The new Boom Box 4.3 infotainment system takes your music and technology to a place that has to be seen and heard to be believed. The Harley® Street Glide® FLHX model has a 2-1-2 exhaust

As every rider knows, the engine is at the heart of the experience of riding a motorcycle. The amount of torque and horsepower it delivers over the RPM range is in direct proportion to the feeling it gives you when you roll on the throttle. We know what riders want from a motorcycle engine because we’ve been building them for 110 years. Project RUSHMORE gave us the opportunity to dial it in just right. We conducted thousands of road tests with real riders giving us feedback to build the next iteration of the legendary Harley-Davidson® engine.
Let’s start with the big news: 25% more volume for your tunes. The new Boom!™ Box 4.3 Radio puts out 25 watts per channel at 1% distortion and features a factory-tuned, optimized equalizer that pumps out more power and can be played louder will maintaining the clarity of your sound. And the new speed tuning system delivers than just volume changes at different speeds. And all the functions of the radio including station presets, can be operated via your hand controls.
Here are some of the innovations The Rider Project led to: the new Reflex™ Linked Brakes with Anti-lock Braking System. New dual halogen and LED headlamps, brighter Tour-Pak® lighting, brighter turn signals, brighter brake lights, and a new steering head with stiffer front forks.
Project RUSHMORE is the journey we set out on to take our touring motorcycles to places never imagined before – to turn all the possibilities for what a motorcycle can be now into true Milwaukee steel. We did it our way, as we’ve always done. As riders. Riding with other riders. Thousand of hours, countless road tests, millions of miles. Looking for the technology and innovations that truly make the ride better. We went over the bike fender tip to fender tip.
We dialed in the comfort of our machines the hard way: over thousands of miles in all kinds of riding conditions on every kind of street, road and highway ever laid down in pavement. Experienced riders putting in long hours in the saddle and giving us feedback on every aspect that contributes to comfort on the road.
