Harley Davidson Electra Glide Highway King | H-D 2023 Icons Collection

This in from Harley Davidson

Our third release in the Icons Motorcycle Collection, the 2023 Electra Glide® Highway King is inspired by the beloved era of long-haul scenic adventures. Inspired by our iconic 1968 FLH Electra Glide, Highway King merges classic styling with modern comfort and performance. The Highway King embodies the nostalgia of the cherished two-lane road trip.


Reminiscent of the stunning two-tone options available in 1968, the Electra Glide Highway King is offered in Hi-Fi Magenta or Hi-Fi Orange accented with Birch White pinstriping and black denim finishing touches.


An “Electra Glide” script emblem lives on each side of the front fender, along with a period-inspired 1968 badge on the fuel tank.


A two-tone coil sprung solo seat combined with a color-matched removable windshield deliver comfort and style.


Chrome-finished steel laced wheels, saddlebag rails and fender skirts couple with whitewall tires to complete the period-correct styling.


Produced in a limited quantity, each motorcycle features a laser-etched serial number on the console.
