You can call or email for a quote, and if you’d like to test ride the 2022 Harley-Davidson® Road King®, you can schedule that appointment online through our website. Our team can also assist you with financing, and that loan can extend your new Road King® to extended coverage, motorcycle insurance, motor clothes, gear, accessories and much more.
Stripped-down motorcycles built on Harley-Davidson®’s touring chassis are among the most popular in the lineup. After all, most riders don’t need a full-dress bagger, and the more minimalistic approach strikes a great balance for highway driving, commuting, running errands around town and taking on your local twisties. There are other keys to the success of the 2022 Harley-Davidson® Road King® in Baltimore. One is the fairingless design as opposed to the batwing or sharknose fairing, and the other is that the Road King® has an old-school aesthetic despite being a very modern and sophisticated touring machine.
Road King® vs. Road King® Special
The Road King® Special is the one variant of the Road King® available, and there are two important distinctions that our customers in and near Laurel Columbia Frederick Bel Air should know. The first is that the Special has more of a modern and custom aesthetic. It drops the chrome look in favor of a blacked-out finish. It’s available in more color options. It also has less lighting elements and makes up for this with a powerful Daymaker LED headlamp. The second is that it has the more powerful Milwaukee-Eight® 114 engine, which means more power out of the gate and also more headroom.
Road King® Ride Characteristics
The defining characteristic of the 2022 Harley-Davidson® Road King® in Baltimore is that it doesn’t have a fairing. For some riders, fairing is simply a matter of aesthetics, and for others, it shapes the feel of the bike. If you’re unsure your preference, then we encourage you to test ride the 2022 Harley-Davidson® Road King® at Harley-Davidson® of Baltimore and compare it against bikes like the Road Glide® and Street Glide®. Another important note is that this bike does not have an infotainment system, so it’s for the rider who wants to disconnect and get away from it all. Other characteristics include upright riding position, forward foot controls, floorboards, a passenger seat and saddlebags.
Road King® Performance
The Road King® is powered by the Milwaukee-Eight® 107 engine, and it makes approximately 93 horsepower and 110 pounds-feet of torque. That is ample acceleration and top-end power for most riders in and near Laurel Columbia Frederick Bel Air, but if you want more, you have a couple of options. Installing a Screamin’ Eagle engine upgrade kit lets you improve the performance of the 107 to the 114. You could also opt for the Road King® Special, which comes standard with the 114.
Road King® Customization
All Road King® models have a chrome aesthetic. Vivid Black is the standard color and included in the MSRP. There are also two premium color schemes available for the 2022 Harley-Davidson® Road King® in Baltimore: Midnight Crimson and Gauntlet Gray Metallic with Vivid Black. Rider safety enhancements are available as a factory option. Our location also provides you full access to the Harley-Davidson® catalog, which features numerous accessories for the Road King®, including windshields, handlebars, grips, medallions, shifter pegs, seating, backrests, Tour-Paks and much more.
