2024 Harley-Davidson Street Glide: Enhanced Power and Style for Touring Enthusiasts
Harley-Davidson has kept its promise and is set to reintroduce the Street Glide in a fresh and improved version for 2024. Not only will it have a more appealing appearance, but it will also boast increased power, comfort, and a lighter weight. This highly impressive Grand American Touring bike is sure to please fans, as Harley-Davidson has made sure to enhance its “Batwing” design for even greater admiration.
In 2024, Harley-Davidson has enhanced the appeal of its Street Glide model by introducing a more powerful engine and incorporating sleek design features that not only enhance its appearance but also improve its aerodynamics. The 2024 edition of the Street Glide features an upgraded fairing profile that creates a seamless and dynamic flow from the front fenders to the saddlebags. Despite these updates, the Street Glide continues to embody the classic allure of a Harley-Davidson touring bike, showcasing its signature blend of robust performance, luxurious comfort, and iconic American motorcycle DNA.
Starting with the latest updates, the Harley-Davidson Milwaukee-Eight 117 V-Twin engine has replaced the previous 114 version, promising a significant increase in torque and horsepower. However, the exact specifications have not been disclosed by the motorcycle manufacturer. Along with a larger displacement, this iconic V-twin engine now incorporates a new cooling system that is specifically designed to enhance comfort for the rider. Additionally, the improved intake and exhaust flow contribute to a notably enhanced performance.
Harley-Davidson provides all specifications for their products.
In contrast to the frame-mounted fairings used on its counterpart, the Road Glide, the Street Glide features updated fork-mounted fairings designed to improve rider comfort during long-distance rides. Although these two motorcycles have similar steering setups, they not only possess distinct appearances but also handle differently. Ultimately, deciding between them comes down to a personal preference that Harley-Davidson encourages customers to determine by test riding both models.
According to Harley-Davidson, the Street Glide’s updated fairings can significantly decrease the turbulent effect on a rider’s helmet when riding at high speeds, with an average reduction of 60 percent. Additionally, the rear suspension travel has been enhanced by 50 percent and a redesigned one-piece seat with improved padding and shape contributes to a more comfortable experience on long journeys.
The Street Glide Special from Harley-Davidson has long been known for its impressive performance, particularly in its high-end versions. Now, the updated version is set to take it to the next level. According to Harley-Davidson, the brand-new 2024 Street Glide will be available at authorized dealers in January 2024 and will start at $25,999.
