At the heart of the FLHXS is the Milwaukee-Eight 107 engine, a powerhouse that delivers the legendary Harley-Davidson rumble. With 1,746cc of displacement, this V-twin engine produces a satisfying combination of torque and horsepower, providing a thrilling riding experience. The responsiveness of the throttle and the smooth six-speed transmission make acceleration a joy, allowing riders to effortlessly navigate both city streets and open highways.


Riding Comfort:
Long rides are a breeze on the FLHXS, thanks to the ergonomic design and thoughtful features. The one-touch opening saddlebags offer ample storage space for essentials and the Boom! Box 6.5 Infotainment System provides entertainment and navigation at your fingertips. The spacious and well-padded seat, coupled with the adjustable rear suspension, ensures a comfortable ride for both the rider and passenger.
