The Harley-Davidson Icons Motorcycle Collection is an annual program for the limited release of a new model that offers a fresh interpretation of an iconic Harley-Davidson motorcycle. Each model is individually numbered and produced only once.

Harley-Davidson Icons Motorcycle Collection: Hydra-Glide Revival Model 

The 2024 Hydra-Glide Revival model, the fourth installment in the Harley-Davidson Icons Motorcycle Collection, celebrates the 75th anniversary of the 1949 introduction of the Hydra-Glide telescopic front suspension for Harley-Davidson E and F models. The 2024 Icons model is inspired by the look of the motorcycles ridden in 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 the United States on June 21, 2024. 

2024 Harley-Davidson Icons Hydra-Glide Revival

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

The 2024 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 detachable windshield features a color-matched lower portion in Redline Red. A chrome round air cleaner cover and chrome steel laced wheels add to the nostalgic look. Front and rear fender trim, engine guard, fork covers, powertrain, and exhaust are finished in brilliant chrome.

A solo saddle is finished with a fringed and decorated leather valance, white seam piping and red contrast stitching, and a chrome rail for a nostalgic look. A matching black leather tank strap is embellished with studs and a concho. Leather and vinyl saddlebags are detailed with chrome conchos with acrylic red centers, chrome studs and leather fringe, white seam piping, and red contrast stitching. The saddlebags are water-resistant and have keyed locks for security, as well as a rigid liner so they will hold their shape season after season.

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

The Softail chassis hides adjustable mono-shock rear suspension below the seat. The bike also features electronic cruise control, an LED headlamp and auxiliary lamps, and standard ABS.  

Global production of the Hydra-Glide Revival model will not exceed 1,750 units, and pricing starts at $24,999. 

Harley-Davidson Tobacco Fade Enthusiast Motorcycle Collection

Featuring a paint and graphics scheme inspired by the classic sunburst wood finish first seen on rock and roll guitars, bass, and drums of the 1960s, the 2024 Harley-Davidson Tobacco Fade Enthusiast Motorcycle Collection celebrates the burst of collective energy released by live music at the corner tavern, at a motorcycle rally, or the live stage at the Harley-Davidson Homecoming Festival. Comprising the Low Rider ST, Ultra Limited, and Tri Glide Ultra models, the Enthusiast collection of bikes is perfect for any music lover. 

The Tobacco Fade paint treatment is applied by Harley-Davidson using state-of-the art precision paint tools designed to execute faded panel detailing. A rich caramel-colored 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. Finally, the bikes have an Enthusiast Collection branded logo on top of the Tour-Pak luggage carrier or rear fender.

Beyond the Enthusiast Motorcycle Collection special styling features, each model is mechanically identical to its 2024 lineup counterpart. Adding the Enthusiast paint and graphics scheme tacks on $1,900 to the Low Rider ST for a starting price of $25,299; $2,900 to the Ultra Limited ($35,399); and $4,000 to the Tri Glide Ultra ($41,999).
