MSRP is $26,999.00. My guess is $32,500 OTD

Looks great . In magnetta .
Unfortunately I find it greatly annoying
They messed with the name. Highway King!😖
In 1979 I bought a new FLH $5,000 out the door.
Harley called the bike King of the Highway !
They go they all this bike building to come up with this model and they blow the name. Not to mention $30,000 plus is just plain immoral .

I thought something sounded wrong in the name.
King of The Highway rolls of the tongue better.

Prices of new bikes have gone out the window all across the board.
Harley cut back on production just for that reason.
This bike is really just a Road King with chrome bag guards and a pogo seat.
It is a good looking bike but not worth the $$ to me.
I do think that a five gallon tank would look better than the six gallon tank that they are running.

So the Highway sibling of the King family comes with wire tubed rims. For the Highway. Shod with wide whitewalls, yuk. Cool mini buddy seat, I’d need to find mini buddies. There’s probably a passenger seat available. Pretty bike. Chrome is expensive.
No “standard” RK as most every model is premium now. They’ve added an S and turned the Road King into a sort of hot rod bagger, if you want a windshield I think you have to hit the parts counter. While we’re at it they should probably call the S model King the Street King. I do like that model though, sportier wheel package, all around sportier, slimmed down and thousands lower msrp. Probably a better highway bike too with a windshield and a decent seat for your buddy.

I am a sucker for that magenta version's looks, but for the money they could have given it the 117" motor, and for a Highway bike the tubed tires are a miss. Big thing though is the price - bring retired (semi) I can't plunk that kind of cash down on anything 😳 🥺
