Harley Kicks Off Its Icons Collection Motos With A Modern Electra Glide Homage

Apr 29, 2021

Harley-Davidson originally launched the Electra Glide in 1965, when it gave its FLH platform an electric starter, a bigger battery, and a 5-gallon Turnpike tank. Over the next four years, the bar and shield would continue to redesign the bike, replacing its Panhead with a more powerful Shovelhead engine and eventually fitting it with the iconic “batwing” fork-mounted fairing for which it’s known today.

As an homage to the 1969 Electra Glide, Harley-Davidson has decided to kick off its Icons Collection starting with the ‘Electra Glide Revival.’ Designed to mimic the look of its late 60s predecessor, it comes wearing a number of period-inspired pieces, including a ‘Birch White’ fairing and saddlebags, a two-tone stitched single-seat, an old-school tank badge, and even some whitewall tires. Done up with plenty of chrome throughout and riding on some spoked wheels, it looks to be quite the retro redux. However, dig a little deeper and you’ll find that that it’s fitted with all of Harley’s latest and greatest riding technology. So, in addition to a massive 1,868cc Milwaukee-Eight engine, it also includes such features as an RDRS safety system and a Boom! Box GTS infotainment unit. Limited to just 1,500 units, it’s available now starting at $29,199.

Purchase: $29,199+
