For 2024, Harley-Davidson added even more appeal to its Street Glide model, adding more engine power along with cool design elements that not only improved the design, but the aerodynamics as well. For 2024, the all-new Street Glide also boasts a modern and refined fairing profile that creates a seamless dynamic flow from the front fenders to the saddlebags. Of course, the Street Glide remains a stunning Harley-Davidson touring bike, boasting enough power, comfort and style to showcase its familiar hardcore American motorcycle DNA.

First, a redesigned Milwaukee-Eight 117 V-Twin engine replaces the old 114, boosting both torque and power, though Harley-Davidson has kept specs under wraps. Along with the increased displacement, the V-twin, Harley-Davidson’s top model, also boasts a new cooling system that optimizes thermal comfort for the rider. In addition, improved intake and exhaust flow provide better performance.

That’s why we love the bold look of the Harley-Davidson Street Glide

Comfort is key, and the Harley-Davidson brand offers some of the most luxurious bikes on the market.

The new Street Glide also offers better aerodynamics

Unlike the frame-mounted fairings of its sibling, the Road Glide, the Street Glide features new and improved fork-mounted fairings designed to increase rider comfort with long-distance travel in mind. Although both motorcycles are identical, they not only look different, but also handle differently. In the end, it all comes down to individual choice, which Harley-Davidson invites you to make after testing both models.

Other key features of the 2024 Harley-Davidson Street Glide include:

  • Four selectable riding modes, namely Road, Sport, Rain and Custom, electronically control the motorcycle’s performance and other functions.
  • Harley-Davidson updates infotainment with a 12.3-inch color TFT touchscreen that replaces all analog instruments and most switches.
  • There’s a new 200-watt audio amplifier paired with twin fairing-mounted speakers.

Harley-Davidson claims the new Street Glide fairings also reduce subjective helmet impact at highway speeds by an average of 60 percent. In addition, they also increased the travel of the rear suspension by another 50 percent, and an upgraded one-piece seat with better padding and shape increases the comfort of long-distance riding.

This touring bike has always been a powerful model, especially in top trims like the Harley-Davidson Street Glide Special, so the new iteration will only amplify all of that. According to Harley-Davidson, the all-new 2024 Street Glide will arrive at authorized Harley-Davidson dealerships in January 2024 with a starting price of $25,999.
