Harley Davidson Electra Glide Will Roll With XM Satellite Radio Standard Feature

Dateline: 07/27/05


XM Satellite Radio has entered the motorcycle market with Harley-Davidson's 2006 FLHTCUSE Screamin' Eagle Ultra Classic Electra Glide, the first ever motorcycle model equipped with a standard XM Satellite Radio.

The XM Radio is part of the Screamin' Eagle Ultra's standard advanced Audio System by Harmon/Kardon. In addition, XM Satellite Radio can be added as an accessory feature to the standard Advanced Audio System found on Harley-Davidson's 2006 FLHX, FLHTC, FLTR and FLHTCU models, giving Harley touring riders the freedom to cruise commercial free from coast to coast.

XM Satellite Radio has been fully integrated as an available feature of the all-new Advanced Audio System, designed exclusively to Harley-Davidson specifications by Harman/Kardon. Each XM-equipped model will include three months of complimentary XM service.

With 20 watts of fully utilized power per channel and a digital display, the AM/FM/XM-ready/ WB/CD-MP3 system provides sound and function for the base radio, and is designed to integrate seamlessly with a number of new Harley-Davidson electronic accessories.

It also includes a high resolution display with adjustable background color which can show XM channel playing as well as artist name and song title.

An optional 40-watt-per-channel amplifier further boosts performance of the audio system, and a rider-to-passenger intercom with push-to-talk hand controls and headset receptacles can also be added for easy communication while on the road.

Motorcycle enthusiasts will have their first opportunity to experience the new 2006 Harley-Davidson Screamin' Eagle Ultra Electra Glide equipped with XM at the annual Sturgis Rally near Rapid City, SD in August when more than 800,000 enthusiasts will converge.

Beginning with the 2006 model year, XM-equipped Harley-Davidson Authorized Rentals bikes will also be offered through select Harley-Davidson dealers and in-showroom XM kiosks at many dealers will allow Harley owners to hear live XM programming.
