POWERED by the muscular Milwaukee-Eight 107 engine, the new Electra Glide Standard is a salute to the authentic Harley-Davidson touring experience. Inspired by the unrivaled heritage of the Electra Glide name, it provides a raw fundamental touring experience.
Designed for the traditional touring customer, the Electra Glide Standard is for the rider seeking to disconnect from all the noise of the day-to-day through riding. A simplistic approach delivers a motorcycle that provides and heightens the experience of the journey.
This elemental experience is key in the design and engineering of the new model. It features essential styling elements such as the iconic bat-wing fairing, chrome trim, standard saddle bags, and cast aluminium wheels.
Chrome accents are added in high-impact design areas and complimented by polished rocker, cam and derby covers, and select blacked out components – a blend of traditional elements and modern trends.
“To express the stripped-back essence of the Electra Glide Standard, we focused on finishes that were simple, timeless, and fundamental to the Harley-Davidson’s touring line,” Harley-Davidson’s VP of styling and design, Brad Richards said.
“The rocker, cam, and derby covers are finished with chrome to emphasize the V-Twin shape of the Milwaukee-Eight 107 engine. In addition, they add a dose of nostalgia that
draws a through-line all the way back to the first Electra Glide.”
To provide a raw touring motorcycle experience without riding compromises, the Electra Glide Standard features all the latest ride and handling technology of Harley-Davidson’s touring line.
These include electronic cruise control, hand-adjustable emulsion-technology rear shock absorbers, 49mm front forks with dual bending valve suspension, and reflex linked Brembo brakes with optional ABS.
The deletion of the infotainment system enhances the light touch and leaves the rider to focus on connecting with the road.
The Milwaukee-Eight provides the performance and riding benefits that consumers expect and appreciate, including quick throttle response, plenty of passing power, and that iconic Harley-Davidson big twin sound.
The 2019 Electra Glide Standard model is offered in Vivid Black with a ride away price of $34,495.
