    The info is finally officially out:

    Road Glide Reveal | Project RUSHMORE | Harley-Davidson USA

    I'm kind of surprised it's not water cooled like the Ultra Limited. I'm also disappointed that it's not offered as an Ultra model with tourpack. Maybe it'll be a midyear update.

    That is the ugliest fairing I have ever seen on a Harley. Looks very "foreign", (for lack of a more politically correct term) :p

    I can't wait to get feedback on what it feels like to ride behind it. Lots of folks didn't like the Rushmore fairing on last years touring bikes but they say the ride is amazing. All those hours in the wind tunnel must have paid off.

    I do not know. I think it looks a bit more athletic. At least its not a V-rod glide......:p

    I think they went to far on the fairing. Just not digging the look.

    To get that flow through ventilation was probably the reason for such a drastic change.

    I hear ya, I just wonder if it heading towards function over form. Maybe it just to different for my taste.

    I think the new bags are one of the best improvements that came out of the Rushmore project. They look more aerodynamic and open and close like a dream.
