HARLEY-DAVIDSON ELECTRA GLIDE® STANDARD DELIVERS AN ELEMENTAL TOURING EXPERIENCE POWERED BY THE MILWAUKEE-EIGHT ENGINE
(Vaughan, ON) March 4, 2019 – 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 unrivalled heritage of the Electra Glide name it provides a raw, fundamental touring experience inspired by Harley-Davidson’s Grand American touring roots.
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 to providing the pure essentials delivers a motorcycle that provides and heightens the experience of the journey. This elemental experience is a key component in the design and engineering of the Electra Glide Standard.
The Electra Glide Standard features essential Harley-Davidson styling such as the iconic batwing fairing, chrome trim, standard saddle bags, and cast aluminum 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 styling 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 Touring line. Chrome was retained on key components and complimented by polished and blacked out parts, for example,” said Harley-Davidson’s Vice President of Styling and Design, Brad Richards. “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 such as standard 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.
A central part of the touring experience and a highlight of the Electra Glide Standard is its Milwaukee Eight 107 cu. in. powerplant engine featuring sleek, modern styling that respects the heritage of previous Harley-Davidson big twin engines.
In the Electra Glide Standard, the Milwaukee Eight provides the performance and riding benefits that consumers the world over expect and appreciate with quick throttle response, plenty of passing power, and that iconic Harley-Davidson big twin sound.
The Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Standard model is offered in Vivid Black with an M.S.R.P. of $24,799 CAD.
