SCOOP: 2015 Harley-Davidson Freewheeler Trike Spied
A Harley-Davidson three-wheeler was caught by our spy photographer at the same time as the 2015 Road Glide.
It appears to be a new riff on the Lehman Trikes-derived architecture of the existing Tri-Glide, but with totally new bodywork and, unusually, no front fairing. That, along with the relatively slim front fender, gives it something of a Fat Boy stance, although the rear fenders are more in line with Harley’s Breakout model.
The bulbous trunk between them suggests decent luggage space even though the trike does without the top box of the Tri-Glide. The fork and front wheel are identical to the existing Street Glide and the new Road Glide’s, while the headlight’s chrome mounting panel appears to be unique to the trike.
When it comes to a name, last year Harley trademarked the term ‘Freewheeler’ specifically for a new three-wheeled model, so there’s got to be a strong possibility that’s the moniker it will carry when it’s officially unveiled later this year.
Like the new Road Glide, the trike gets the High Output Twin Cam 103 air-cooled motor instead of the Twin-Cooled version with water-cooled cylinder heads that’s used in the existing Tri-Glide.
