Default 18 or 19

I am thinking of trading and the dealer has a few left over 18's that they say they will reduce the price. Do the 19's have any significant changes over the 18's ?

Depends on the model. New infotainment option (fast and touch screen), and 114 std on some models, along with different color choices. Chassis and suspension are still the same. Trikes get ABS and traction control now.

Which model? Depending on the model, there's a 114 engine and a new Infortainment system for the touring models.

If going after a Limited go for the 2019. Consider though a Road Glide Ultra. I love my Limited (2018) but wish now I found a RGU to test ride first. I was at my dealer today to pick up some parts and saw one 2019 RGU in a sea of batwings in various stages of dress.

Pull up the NADA wholesale value on the 18 and the discount they offer and you may see why buying the 19 is a better option. Keep in mind the 107 is gone just like the 96 and 103 and HD riders always want the latest greatest. So you could take a big hit on the back end on trade or resale.

H-D used to show last year's and current year's specs on their website, but I can't see them at present. Makes sense while there are plenty of last year's stock available on inventory. Anyone know how we can see them?

Go with the '19. It's another year of refinements over the problems from the previous year. And as has been mentioned, you get the bigger motor and better la-la-tainment.
