Meet the Harley-Davidson® Road King® Special
The Road King® is a back-to-basics bagger that is quite advanced mechanically but is designed with more of an old-school approach. The 2022 Harley-Davidson® Road King® Special in Baltimore is similar but with more high-end features and perhaps a bit more modern in its aesthetic. While this is a touring motorcycle that will keep you comfortable and in control over long distances, it’s also a bike that feels right at home running errands around town and even challenging your local twisties.
What’s New for 2022
The most notable mechanical change for the 2022 Harley-Davidson® Road King® Special in Baltimore is an update that was made across the lineup: electronic linked braking with an antilock braking system. Beyond that, the only change is new premium color options. All models have a black finish. The standard color scheme is Vivid Black, and you now have the choice of Midnight Crimson, Mineral Green Denim and Apex, which is a special paint inspired by the brand’s winning race bikes of the past.
Road King® vs Road King® Special
The standard Road King® has a more traditional chrome aesthetic and large windshield. The 2022 Harley-Davidson® Road King® Special in Baltimore has a more modern blacked-out finish. It drops the windshield, but you could, of course, add this accessory back if you want it. It also has less lighting overall, and Harley-Davidson® compensates for this by using a bright white Daymaker LED headlamp. The other big difference is that Special has the Milwaukee-Eight® 114 engine as opposed to the 107. That means better performance from the factory and available with a Screamin’ Eagle upgrade kit.
Road King® Special Ride Characteristics
The Road King® Special is built on the Grand American Touring platform. It puts the rider in an upright position and has forward foot controls. It also has a passenger seat, floorboards and saddlebags. The Road King® Special is a fairingless motorcycle. Most Harley-Davidson® tourers have either a fork- or frame-mounted fairing, and if you’re unsure what your preference is, that’s another great reason to test ride the 2022 Harley-Davidson® Road King® Special. Another important note is that this bike does not have a touch-screen-based infotainment system, which is not something you can easily change after the fact.
Road King® Special Performance
The Road King® Special has the Milwaukee-Eight® 114 engine. It makes 100 horsepower and 119 pounds-feet of torque, which is plenty of performance for most riders in and near Laurel Columbia Frederick Bel Air. However, if you do want more output, you can have us install a Screamin’ Eagle engine kit, and that will elevate the performance in line with what the Milwaukee-Eight® 117 provides.
