2007 Harley Davidson FLHP Road King Specsby Susan Dorling
Law enforcement agencies throughout the world have relied on Harley-Davidson police motorcycles since 1908. Along with the Electra Glide Police, the Road King Police is strong and durable for the arduous duties it needs to perform. With its speed, handling, overall functionality and icy white beauty, the 2007 Road King Police exudes a powerful presence. This imposing machine complements the mounted officer equally in his diverse roles as law enforcer, motorcade escort and performer in motorcycle precision demonstrations.
Engine and Performance
Chasing down highway speeders is one of the primary functions of the mounted officer, and the Road King Police is well-equipped for the job with its powerful Twin Cam 103 cubic-inch oil-cooled V-Twin engine. The big-bore engine produces 102 ft-lbs of torque at 2,500 rpm. With its six-speed Cruise Drive transmission and Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection fuel system, the Road King Police is extremely powerful, fast and smooth. Fuel capacity is 5 gallons with a 1-gallon reserve.
Styling and Rider Handling
The 2007 Road King Police is a shining white knight ready to be enhanced with the unique color scheme and graphics of the purchasing law enforcement agency. This massive, elegant motorcycle features black, nine-spoke cast aluminum wheels on the front and back, fitted with 16-inch tires. At 723 lbs., the heavy-weight FLHP is nicely balanced by a relatively low laden seat height of 27.3 inches. The exhaust features touring crossover chrome duals with taper end caps that reinforce the stylish appearance of the Road King Police.
The 2007 Harley-Davidson Road King Police is 93.7 inches long, 59.1 inches high and 34.5 inches wide. It has a wheelbase of 63.5 inches, which provides exceptional maneuverability in all applications for such a large motorcycle; essential for the mounted officer who must perform a range of duties with precision on highways, city streets and in small, enclosed areas.
