2021 Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Revival

The particular blend of features really channels the 1969 version, all without sacrificing performance or electronic sophistication

Harley-Davidson rebrands its tourbike line under the “Grand American Touring” banner in 2021, and marks the occasion with the all-new Electra Glide Revival.

This rolling tribute brings classic design elements together with top-shelf electronics and a large powerful engine.

The new Electra Glide Revival comes loaded with all of the current technology including Reflex™ Defensive Rider Systems and Boom! Box GTS 6.5.

This classic silhouette with tri-tone paint taken straight from 1969 comes with period correct badging.

The RDRS technology bundle includes Cornering Enhanced Anti-Lock Brake System, Cornering Enhanced Electronic Linked Braking,

Cornering Enhanced Traction Control System, Drag-torque Slip Control System, and Hill Hold Control.

The Milwaukee Eight 114 engine displaces 1,868 cc with 97 hp and 118 lb-ft of torque.

Coupled with the 6-Speed Cruise Drive® transmission, you can expect effortless cruising with ample roll-on in 5th and 6th gear.

The overall shape of the saddle with pedestal-and-hinge articulation and chrome buttstop were inspired by the seats popular on the old hardtail models and into the early swingarm years.

It is a solo seat with plush tuck-and-roll upholstery, so no sharing the fun with a friend, at least on the stock setup.

Laced wheels sport plenty of chrome and carry broad “gangster” whitewalls that trace their lineage back to the middle of the previous century.

Likewise, the full front fender has a similar pedigree, as does the chrome script, piping, and fender skirt that completes the package in old-school style.

The baggage comes shot in the same paint as the fairing for more of that home-spun look with 2.3 cubic-feet of secure dry storage.

A final bit of bling makes it onto the rear end at the bag guards and rear turn-signal mount.

The Electra Glide Revival is the first bike in Harley's Icons Collection, which is an annual program intended to “elevate traditional forms and celebrate Americana,

either by revisiting classic Harley-Davidson design themes or by exploring ideas that represent the future of motorcycle style,” according to the Harley site.

MSRP on this limited edition Electra Glide Revival is $29.2k.
