2024 Limited-Edition Harley-Davidson Motorcycles Debut

Limited-edition Harley-Davidson Hydra-Glide Revival Model and Tobacco Fade Motorcycles premiere at Daytona Bike Week.

The latest additions to the limited-edition Harley-Davidson Motorcycles, namely the Icons Motorcycle Collection and the limited-run Enthusiast Motorcycle Collection, were revealed, showcasing premium factory-direct custom paint and graphic treatments and paint application technology.

Both collections were displayed from 2-9 March during the run of Daytona Bike Week at the H-D Event Display Area at Daytona International Speedway and will be made available at authorized H-D dealers.

The Icons model is inspired by the look of the motorcycles ridden in the era of the upcoming film, The Bikeriders, which follows the rise of a midwestern motorcycle club, as seen through the lives of its members. The film is scheduled to be released theatrically in Summer 2024.

Hydra-Glide Revival Model

The 2024 Hydra-Glide Revival model, the fourth instalment in the H-D Icons Motorcycle Collection, celebrates the 75th anniversary of the 1949 introduction of the Hydra-Glide telescopic front suspension for H-D E and F models.

When Hydra-Glide equipped models were introduced, the saddle of a smooth-riding H-D FL motorcycle was an exciting way for many Americans to explore the country on the new network of Interstate highways.

Owners of the 2024 Hydra-Glide Revival model can trace their own route to freedom and adventure on a bike inspired by this classic era while enjoying all the comfort and features of a modern Harley.

The Icons Motorcycle Collection is an annual program for the limited release of a new model that offers a fresh interpretation of an iconic H-D motorcycle. A limited collection, each model is individually numbered and produced only once.

Global production of the Hydra-Glide Revival model will not exceed 1,750 units.

The Hydra-Glide Revival model is finished in custom Redline Red paint with a Birch White panel on fuel tank sides, the same design featured on 1956 models. Details include chrome “Harley-Davidson V” tank badges inspired by 1955-56 tank badges and “Hydra-Glide” script badges located on the front fender skirt.

The serialized “Hydra-Glide Revival” insert on the handlebar riser cap and Icons Motorcycle Collection graphic on the rear fender identify this limited-production model.

Additional styling features include instrument graphics inspired by those on the 1954-55 speedometer. The two-tone 21-inch (53.3 cm) high detachable windshield features a colour-matched lower portion in Redline Red.

The bike features a counter-balanced Milwaukee-Eight 114 V-Twin engine tuned with a Screamin’ Eagle High-Flow air cleaner to deliver power with authority. For the rider focused on performance, this engine accepts all applicable H-D Screamin’ Eagle Stage Upgrade kits.

The Softail chassis hides an adjustable mono-shock rear suspension below the seat for dynamic cornering capability and riding comfort while preserving a classic hardtail profile.

Electronic cruise control holds a steady speed for comfort on long rides. An LED headlamp and auxiliary lamps provide outstanding forward illumination. Standard Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) offers confident control in a variety of riding conditions.

Tobacco Fade Enthusiast Motorcycle Collection

Together the beat of rock ‘n roll and the syncopated rhythm of a V-Twin engine stir the souls of Harley riders. The 2024 Tobacco Fade Enthusiast Motorcycle Collection celebrates the burst of collective energy released by live music at the corner tavern, at a motorcycle rally, or on the live stage at the Harley-Davidson Homecoming Festival.

The Tobacco Fade paint and graphics scheme, inspired by the classic sunburst wood finish first seen on rock and roll guitars, bass, and drums of the 1960s, make this a special motorcycle for any music lover.

These limited-edition Harley-Davidson Enthusiast Motorcycle Collection models celebrate H-D riders and are inspired by their stories and legacies. This collection of H-D motorcycles is available in no more than 2,000 per model across a curated selection of three motorcycle models.

The Tobacco Fade paint treatment is applied by H-D using state-of-the-art precision paint tools designed to execute faded panel detailing. A rich caramel-coloured pinstripe accents the tone of the metallic gold panel floating just outside the sunburst fade.

The fuel tank medallion is inspired by the shape and grooves of a vinyl record, while a graphic on the front fender shaped like a guitar pick, inspired by rock band and instrument logos, speaks directly to the details in the tank medallion.

The Tobacco Fade Enthusiast Collection includes:

Low Rider ST

Strap down your bedroll and make a run for the border. The H-D Low Rider ST model is an American V-Twin sport-touring bike for the rider who digs clean-and-lean West Coast style and craves the outrageous performance of the Milwaukee-Eight 117 V-Twin powertrain.

The Low Rider ST model connects these riders with a pure Harley-Davidson attitude. Mechanical features are identical to the 2024 Low Rider ST model.

Ultra Limited

Tri Glide Ultra

A long-haul touring trike that calls you to go the distance with all the torque, style, premium infotainment and cargo space three wheels can hold – it is the ultimate in two-up comfort for adventurers who show no signs of stopping. Mechanical features are identical to 2024 Tri Glide Ultra model.
