Harley Davidson Hydra-Glide Revival design, colour, features

The Hydra-Glide Revival, based on its 1949 model year version, gets a similar triple pod headlight design, tall windscreen as well as a bespoke red/white paint scheme. Further adding to its classic looks are studded leather seats and saddlebags replete with tassels, both of which are lockable and waterproof. Going further, since the Hydra-Glide Revival is a numbered edition it gets a serial number plate on the handlebar that adds to its exclusivity.

Powering the Hydra-Glide Revival is a 1868cc, V-Twin engine that churns out 94hp at 4,750rpm and 161 Nm of torque at 3,000rpm, which is mated to a six speed gearbox. The Hydra-Glide Revival is suspended by a telescopic fork and a preload-adjustable monoshock, while stopping duties are handled by a 300mm disc at the front and a 292mm disc at the back, along with the safety net of dual-channel ABS. The Hydra-Glide Revival rides on 16-inch wire-spoked wheels shod with Dunlop rubber.

Limited to just 1750 units, the 2024 Harley Davidson Hydra-Glide Revival is priced at USD 24,999 (approximately Rs 20.69 lakh). However, if a few units of this limited edition model wind up in India, one can expect a heftier price tag factoring in our duties and taxes.
