The 2022 Harley-Davidson Road Glide ST sleek performance bagger that projects more attitude than ever, backed up with the street-scorching power of the Milwaukee-Eight® 117 powertrain.

The 2022 Harley-Davidson Road Glide ST boats a Milwaukee-Eight 117 engine. Okay, so it’s not the Screamin’ Eagle Milwaukee-Eight 131R that Wyman runs. However, the 117 offers up 127 ft-lbs of torque at 3750 rpm, and that’s not bad

High-speed windblasts are handled by triple Splitstream venting in the frame-mounted shark-nose fairing. The fairing gets a dark windshield with a low profile. In the front are the distinctive dual Daymaker LED headlights for higher visibility before and after dark. A fairing-mounted Boom! Box GTS infotainment system faces the rider, along with a pair of speakers. H-D knows you don’t want to see the antenna, so it’s hidden.

With the sportier intentions of the new Road Glide ST, the styling is slimmed down. The front fender is trimmed, the engine guard is low-profile, the seat is solo, and the side cases are standard-length (rather than the extended on the Road Glide Special). Don’t miss the aggressive forward-facing Heavy Breather air intake with the air cleaner element exposed.

Various combinations of black dominate the Road Glide ST, with selective machined and bronze accents. There are two color choices—Vivid Black and Gunship Gray (+$575).

The 2022 Harley-Davidson Road Glide ST is part of the Grand American Touring lineup, so it has many enhancements for long journeys. Cruise control is standard, as are linked braking and ABS. The fork is a smooth Showa Dual Bending Valve design, and the shock is remotely adjustable for spring preload. A fob-based Smart Security System is standard, with H-D’s Cornering Rider Safety Enhancements available as a $1025 option.

Although the list price is $29,999, there’s an $800 “Surcharge” added. According to Harley-Davidson insiders, the surcharge is due to unexpected increases in raw material prices.
