First ride of 2017 Touring motorcycles

First ride of 2017 Touring motorcycles

"As a package the Ultra Limited is one of the best touring bikes you can buy, this just improves that even more.” That was the first impression of Bike Social’s Marc Potter who is one of seven UK journalists currently putting the new 2017 Harley-Davidson Touring machines through their paces in Seattle.

The first ride, through countryside made famous by TV show Twin Peaks, has already given the experienced bike tester a positive opinion of the latest upgrades: "With 10% more power and a few extra ccs on the liquid-cooled bike I'm riding at the moment, you can feel that it's more refined generally, and from 2000rpm it definitely has more roll-on from 55mph in top gear at those revs.”

Read the full first impressions here or put the new bikes to the test yourself. We’ll be hosting a special reveal evening for all on Thursday 29 September, before booking the first MY17 test rides over the weekend of 1-2 October… don’t miss out!
