The Harley-Davidson Dyna Wide Glide was introduced in 1994. The Dyna series is the entry level series of large-displacement V-twin Harleys. The name Wide Glide refers to the wide placement of the front forks. The Dyna Wide Glide is styled similarly to custom choppers and has a very cruiser-like steering geometry. The 2010 model features custom logos.
The 2010 Dyna Wide Glide is powered by a 96 cubic inch (1584 cubic centimeter) air-cooled, V-twin engine. The valves are pushrod-operated and there are two valves per cylinder. The compression ratio of the V-twin engine is 9.2:1 and the bore and stroke measurement is 3.75 by 4.38 inches. The Wide Glide’s engine is fuel injected and produces 92 foot-pounds of torque at 3000 RPM. The fuel economy of the Wide Glide is 35 MPG in the city and 54 MPG on the highway.

There is a single front brake disc and a single rear disc brake. The front tire is a 80/90-21 unit and the rear tire is a 180/60B17 unit.
