Harley-Davidson announces limited edition 2024 Hydra-Glide Revival

Slap on your chaps and find your tassled jacket, Harley-Davison is taking us back to the 1950s!

Harley-Davidson has announced its latest 2024 motorcycle in the form of the limited edition Hydra Glide Revival, with the bike limited to just 1750 examples worldwide.


Priced at a mere $46,995, the Hydra-Glide Revival takes Harley's nostalgia stick and smacks the settings up to 11 for this 1950s-inspired tourer.


The 2024 Hydra-Glide Revival model is the fourth bike in the Harley-Davidson Icons

Motorcycle Collection, and celebrates the 75th anniversary of the 1949 introduction of the Hydra-Glide telescopic front suspension for Harley-Davidson E and F models.


Celebrating 75 years of hydraulic telescopic forks. What a world we live in!

Harley-Davidson's 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. A limited collection, each model is individually numbered and produced only once.


The Hydra-Glide Revival is built around the 114 cubic inch Milwaukee-Eight v-twin that has been "tuned with a Screamin’ Eagle High-Flow air cleaner to deliver power with authority."


While H-D may be playing fast and loose there with the term "tuned", the bike can at least be given more performance with the engine accepting all applicable Harley-Davidson Screamin' Eagle Stage Upgrade kits.


Making the Hydra-Glide Revival stand out from the Heritage Softail is visually resembles is a custom Redline Red paint with a Birch White panel on fuel tank sides, which Harley says is the same design that 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 serialised “Hydra-Glide Revival” insert on the handlebar riser cap and Icons Motorcycle Collection graphic on the rear fender also identify this as a limited-production model.


Harley hasn't at least slapped a coat of paint on the bike and called it a day. Other 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. 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 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 badge. Leather and vinyl saddlebags are detailed with chrome conchos with acrylic red centres, chrome studs and leather fringe, white seam piping and red contrast stitching. The saddlebags are water-resistant, have keyed locks for security, and have a rigid liner so they will hold their shape season after season.

Harley-Davidson says the Hydra-Glide Revival 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 in mid-2024.
