Fun fact: The record for the “most countries visited” on a motorcycle is held by Peter and Kay Forwood, who rode their 1994 Harley-Davidson Electra Glide to all 193 recognized countries between 1996 and 2011. Although the new Electra Glide Highway King is not intended for such adventures, we're excited to hear about any upcoming trips!

Press Release: Harley-Davidson has launched its latest motorcycle, the Electra Glide Highway King, as part of the Icons Motorcycle Collection program. The third installment in the series, this limited edition model offers a modern take on the 1968 FLH Electra Glide that was popular in the 60s.

With only 1,750 examples produced worldwide, the Electra Glide Highway King boasts a two-tone windshield, solo suspension seat, wide-whitewall tires, laced wheels, and carefully selected colors that closely resemble the 1968 model. The saddlebags are finished in Birch White, and the fuel tank features a Black Denim panel separated by a Birch White accent stripe. The detachable windshield features a color-matched tinted lower section, and the tank badge is almost identical to the one used in 1968.


The Electra Glide Highway King is equipped with a Milwaukee-Eight 114 V-Twin engine that delivers power and performance. It has a single-spar Harley-Davidson Touring frame with a rigid backbone design and a suspension system that offers optimal ride and control based on bike load. The rider can adjust the pre-load of the rear shock absorbers with a single knob hydraulically, while the forks with dual bending valve suspension technology deliver a smooth ride.

For long-distance rides, the Electra Glide Highway King features electronic cruise control that holds a steady speed. It also has a full suite of Rider Safety Enhancements, including Cornering Enhanced Anti-Lock Brake System, Cornering Enhanced Electronic Linked Braking, Cornering Enhanced Traction Control System, Cornering Drag-torque Slip Control System, and Vehicle Hold Control.


The Electra Glide Highway King is available in two color options: Hi-Fi Orange (limited to 1,000 units) and Hi-Fi Magenta (limited to 750 units). Each model is individually numbered and comes with an Icons Motorcycle Collection graphic and serialization badge laser-etched into the console insert.

The Electra Glide Highway King is a modern motorcycle with an old-school look and feel, offering riders the best of both worlds.
