Harley-Davidson Electra Glide is a dressed-down dresser
Harley-Davidson has stripped $1500 off the price of the Street Glide and deleted the distracting music infotainment system to create the new dressed-down Electra Glide Standard dresser.
It arrives mid-May in “Vivid Black” at $34,495 ride-away ($NZ37,995) which compares with the Street Glide at $36,995.
Despite deleting the infotainment system, the Electra Glide Standard still has a lot of features such as electronic cruise control, hand-adjustable emulsion-technology rear shock absorbers, 49mm front forks with dual bending valve suspension, and Reflex Linked Brembo Brakes with ABS.
“The deletion of the infotainment system enhances the light touch and leaves the rider to focus on connecting with the road,” Harley says.
It is still powered by the Milwaukee-Eight 107 engine.
Harley styling guru Brad Richards calls it a “dressed-down dresser”
“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’s touring line. Chrome was added to key components and complimented by polished and blacked out parts, for example,” he says.
“The rocker, cam, and derby covers are finished with chrome to emphasise 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.”
