How to Choose the Harley Speakers?

Models and Evolution

The first Street Glide FLHXI model was introduced in 2006, Twin Cam 88 (1450 cm³) 5-speed engine.

In 2007 the engine was ramped up to the new Twin Cam 96 engine (1580 cm³) with a new six-speed Cruise Drive. The new Advanced Audio System by Harman-Kardon was added together with an anti-theft system transponder.

In 2009 the model was further improved with a new chassis and modified front suspension. They also redesigned the IDS (Isolated Drive System) system.

In 2010 they changed the front wheel to 18 inches and removed the central rear headlight by replacing to with two LED taillights and integrated arrows. The CVO model was introduced together with the FLHXXX trike.

The Twin Cam 103 engine (1690 cm³) was integrated in 2011, and the CVO comes out with a 110 motor.

2014 saw the big change., this year they introduced the “Progetto Rushmore” with the same Twin Cam 103(1690 cm³) High Output, but added the new Brembo “Reflex” braking system with ABS. The front wing fairing was restructured with a “Split Stream” opening this was added to reduce helmet turbulence, and the dash was redesigned completely. The entertainment system was ramped up with the New GT BOOM BOX with a color touchscreen and mobile device Bluetooth connectivity. This system also came with TTS (text-to-speech) technology and GPS navigation. This is not enough though; the handlebars were ergonomically improved, the side bags come with “one touch” opening. The front wheel is now 19” and has aluminum spoke rims at the spindle; there are two new models the FLHX (Street Glide) models and the FLHXS (Street Glide Special).

In 2017 the Twin Cam 103 engine was replaced with the 8-valve Milwaukee Eight 107 (1755 cm³) engine.
