Harley-Davidson Launches “Icons Collection” With A Retro Electra Glide

The Electra Glide Revival makes good on its name with truly classic styling

This Electra Glide Revival is part of a new program at Harley-Davidson. The “Icons Collection” is a series of very limited production motorcycles built annually. Each year the Icons will include one or two special models produced only once. For example, Harley is limiting the Electra Glide pictured above to only 1,500 units.

Each Icon model has a lifespan of one year, after which they will not be reproduced. Icons Collection motorcycles will be “revisiting classic Harley-Davidson design themes” or “exploring ideas that represent the future of motorcycle style,” says Harley. The Electra Glide Revival clearly represents the former.

The Revival gets its style from the 1969 Electra Glide, which debuted Harley’s now iconic “Batwing” front fairing. The new Electra Glide also harks to its predecessor using a similar white fairing and saddle bags as the ’69.

The Electra Glide Revival is only available in blue and white, with an old school solo seat and white wall tires. Underneath the bright bodywork sits a Milwaukee Eight 114, with 118lb-ft of torque. Safety tech such as cornering ABS, cornering traction control, drag-torque slip control, and hill assist come standard.

If you want the privilege of owning one of Harley’s first Icons, the Revival comes in at $29,199. That is a startling $10,200 more than the Electra Glide Standard, though it does pack a lot more style.

The Electra Glide Revival will be available at dealerships starting late April.
