The first model in the Icons Collection is the new Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Revival

NEW ISENBURG (04/26/2021) - With the Electra Glide , Harley-Davidson presents the new Icons Collection , an edition that will be expanded year after year in the future. It includes motorcycles that are produced in strictly limited quantities and that draw on traditional shapes and American style by taking up classic Harley-Davidson designs or ideas about the future of motorcycle design.

As part of the Icons Collection, Harley-Davidson will in future introduce one or two models every year that will be produced exclusively in that year. Production of such a model will neither be continued nor resumed at a later date.

Each motorcycle in the Icons Collection is provided with a serial number and the buyer receives a certificate of authenticity.

'The Hardwire' strategic plan , we are committed to bringing motorcycles to market that both increase desirability and continue our long tradition,” explains Jochen Zeitz , Chairman, President and CEO of Harley-Davidson . “That’s why I’m proud to present our new, strictly limited Icons Collection today, extraordinary adaptations of production bikes that form a successful synthesis of our great past and our promising future.”

The first model in a new collection

The Harley-Davidson Icons Collection makes its debut with the introduction of the Electra Glide Revival , a retro classic for old-school fans looking for a motorcycle with a style that is as distinctive as it is timeless. Global production of the Electra Glide Revival is limited to 1,500 units, which are expected to be available at authorized Harley-Davidson dealers in late April. The recommended retail price in Germany is 29,995 euros.

The look of the Electra Glide Revival is inspired by the Electra Glide of 1969, the first Harley-Davidson that could be optionally equipped with a batwing fairing. With its distinctive shape, this fairing became an iconic and often copied styling feature that helped to instantly identify a Harley-Davidson among a variety of motorcycles.

Even on current Harley-Davidson models, the basic shape of the original design is immediately recognizable. In 1969, the fairing and panniers were only offered as white fiberglass parts, so the Electra Glide Revival replicates this look by painting the corresponding components in Birch White.

The tank medallion inspired by the late sixties and the Electra Glide lettering on the front fender contribute to the classic style. The Electra Glide Revival is offered in a single livery, also inspired by the original 1969 color scheme: the tank is a two-tone Hi-Fi Blue and Black Denim, separated by a Birch White stripe. The fenders and side covers also have Hi-Fi Blue.

“In our fast-paced world, we are all constantly changing,” says Brad Richards, Harley-Davidson vice president of styling and design.

“The Electra Glide Revival is like a calm oasis in this hectic era. It brings to life the original Harley-Davidson DNA that laid the foundation for Grand American Touring.”

The design highlights of the Electra Glide Revival also include a solo saddle with black and white cover and chrome-plated railing. It is mounted on a shock absorber with an adjustable coil spring - another homage to the Harley-Davidson FL models of the 1960s and a functional feature that increases comfort.

Chrome-plated cross-spoke wheels and wide whitewall tires contribute to the nostalgic look, as does the shiny chrome layer on the front fender and case trim strips, the "ventilator" air filter cover, the fork tube covers and the additional headlights - a design that captivates the eye.

Milwaukee Eight 114

The Electra Glide Revival is powered by the Milwaukee Eight 114 V-Twin, which combines powerful performance with classic Harley-Davidson look, sound and feel.

  • Displacement: 1,868 cm3 ( 114 cui)
  • Maximum torque: 158 Nm at 3,250 rpm
  • Power: 69 kW (94 hp) at 5,250 rpm
  • Four-valve cylinder heads for optimal gas exchange and high performance
  • Double ignition for even, complete and energy efficient combustion
  • Six-speed Cruise Drive transmission for low engine speeds on the highway, low fuel consumption and high comfort

Additional features of the Harley-Davidson touring models

The Electra Glide Revival scores with classic style, but its technology is completely up to date. Your payload capacity and performance benefit from the rigid Harley-Davidson Touring frame, a double-loop steel tube construction with a backbone top cable. In conjunction with the chassis components, it is perfect for long journeys.

In order to ensure optimal driving behavior depending on the load, the preload of the spring struts, which are designed using emulsion technology, can be adjusted hydraulically by hand using a rotary control. The front wheel is guided by a 49 millimeter fork, which ensures linear damping characteristics with its dual bending valve technology.

The classic Batwing fairing features a high, clear windshield and the Splitstream Vent, a cleverly placed air intake that reduces turbulence in the rider's head area. An electronic cruise control system ensures increased driving comfort on long journeys, while a bright halogen headlight and two additional headlights ensure excellent illumination of the road and at the same time underline the nostalgic styling of the Electra Glide Revival.

The Boom! Box GTS infotainment system with color touchscreen supplies two speakers mounted in the fairing and offers, among other things, a modern navigation function. It can be used with control buttons or – when paired with a compatible headset – via voice control and is prepared for the use of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

Also on board as standard are the Harley-Davidson RDRS Safety Enhancements, a package of driving safety systems that adapt the engine performance to the available traction when accelerating, decelerating and braking:

  • Cornering anti-lock braking system (C-ABS)
  • Corner-optimized electronic brake force distribution (C-ELB)
  • Cornering Traction Control (C-TCS)
  • Traction Slip Control (DSCS)
  • Vehicle Hold Assist (HHC)
