The 2024 Harley-Davidson Hydra-Glide Revival pays homage to an upcoming film starring Tom Hardy.

It's easy to overlook one of Harley-Davidson's most thrilling annual events: the launch of their Icons collection bikes. In 2024, this excitement peaked at the end of last week with the unveiling of their latest retro marvel, the 2024 Harley-Davidson Hydra-Glide Revival.

But what exactly defines an Icons Harley-Davidson? For the past four years, the company has been rejuvenating the allure and style of its classic models, transporting enthusiasts back to the golden age of motorcycling. Last year, they delighted fans with the Electra Glide Highway King, inspired by the 1968 FLH, while previous releases included gems like the Low Rider El Diablo.

Now, with their flagship release for the year behind them, Harley-Davidson turns its focus to the 2024 Icon motorcycle, introducing the Hydra-Glide Revival. This special edition bike features a unique paint job and custom graphics, paying homage to historic Harley-Davidson models, particularly the E and F series, which adopted the Hydra-Glide telescopic front suspension in 1949.

Additionally, the inspiration for the Hydra-Glide Revival extends beyond Harley-Davidson's own history. It's also influenced by the upcoming film, "The Bikeriders," starring Tom Hardy, Austin Butler, and Michael Shannon. This movie, chronicling the evolution of a midwestern motorcycle club in the 1950s, serves as another catalyst for the Hydra-Glide Revival's design.

Adorned in striking Redline Red paint with Birch White accents reminiscent of mid-1950s Harley-Davidsons, the Hydra-Glide Revival oozes retro charm. Chrome embellishments, vintage-inspired badges, and meticulously crafted instrument graphics further enhance its classic appeal.

Beneath its nostalgic exterior lies a modern powerhouse: a counter-balanced Milwaukee-Eight 114 V-Twin engine, modified for performance with a Screamin' Eagle High-Flow air cleaner. Equipped with a mono-shock rear suspension, ABS, and vintage-style laced wheels, the Hydra-Glide Revival offers both timeless aesthetics and contemporary functionality.

Limited to just 1,750 units, each priced at $24,999, the Hydra-Glide Revival embodies exclusivity. If you're captivated by its allure, act swiftly—these coveted machines won't last long. For enthusiasts eager to witness its splendor firsthand, the 2024 Harley-Davidson Hydra-Glide Revival is currently on display at the Daytona International Speedway until March 9.
