Harley's Icons Motorcycle Collection takes a ride back to the Swingin’ 60s with the release of the new Electra Glide Highway King

Harley-Davidson has added a third model to its Icons Motorcycle Collection program with the release of the new Electra Glide Highway King model. The Highway King is an exercise in unabashed nostalgia, featuring laced wheels, wide-whitewall tires, a two-tone windshield,  solo suspension seat and colours inspired by the iconic 1968 FLH Electra Glide model.

The 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. Global production of the Electra Glide Highway King model will not exceed 1,750 examples.

In 1968 the Electra Glide model topped the Harley-Davidson motorcycle line. Riders who wanted a little extra touring comfort and convenience could order theirs with the King of the Highway accessories group, which added fiberglass saddlebags, a windshield, a luggage rack over the rear fender, and engine guards.

“In its day this was a really deluxe motorcycle,” said Brad Richards, Harley-Davidson Vice President of Design and Creative Director. “The colours we’ve selected for the Highway King model are reminiscent of the original colour options offered in 1968. We carefully matched each colour in the lower section of the windshield. In 1968, the accessory fiberglass saddlebags were only offered in white, so we’ve done the same in 2023. The result is a thoroughly modern motorcycle that looks unapologetically old school.”

Globally, the Highway King will be offered in two colour options: Hi-Fi Orange (limited to 1,000 units) and Hi-Fi Magenta (limited to 750 units), however, Australia and New Zealand will only receive the Hi-Fi Orange colour option. Hard-shell saddlebags are finished in Birch White, and a Black Denim panel on the fuel tank is separated from the primary colour with a Birch White accent stripe. The tank badge is very similar to the one used in 1968. An Icons Motorcycle Collection graphic and serialisation badge is laser-etched into the console insert.

The foundation of the Electra Glide Highway King model is the single-spar Harley-Davidson Touring frame with a rigid backbone design and fitted with Harley’s Milwaukee-Eight 114 V-Twin engine. The Highway King also features electronic cruise control, halogen headlamp and auxiliary lamps, Reflex linked Brembo brakes, a full suite of rider aids including cornering enhanced linked ABS brakes, cornering enhanced traction control, cornering drag-torque slip control system and vehicle hold control.

The Electra Glide Highway King is available from your local Harley dealer now with a starting price of $42,995.
