Harley-Davidson Street Glide (2010 - 2016)

On paper, the Harley-Davidson Street Glide looks like a good all-around cruiser. It is equipped with a small-sized windscreen and panniers, so the bike is supposed to be capable of long-distance touring. And, thanks to a built-in four speaker audio system, you will be able to enjoy music on those long rides.

Unfortunately, despite its aerodynamic design and large-capacity fuel tank, the Street Glide has a terrible fuel economy. On top of that, the build quality is also not that great and the bike is unreliable.
