2011 Road Glide Ultra $22,499
We didn't get much time on it, but the short miles logged on the new Ultra were some of the most comfortable - and sonically enhanced - we've had this year. You knew it was going to happen eventually - the frame-mounted fairing meshing with a Tour Pak, and all manner of luxury touring accommodations coming close behind. Powered by a Twin Cam 103 engine, which we found we greatly preferred to the higher-strung Screamin Eagle 110 mill we tested on some of the CVOs earlier, the bat bike now comes equipped with a King Tour-Pak cargo hold, vented fairing lowers, ABS, the ultra-convenient Smart Security System, cruise control, and a four-speaker, 80-watt Harman/Kardon Advanced Audio System. The revised seat is the epitome of comfort, and even if we still can't get used to the weirdness of turning the fork one way and having the fairing still go straight ahead, the dead-straight stretches were divine.
