2019 Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Standard | First Look

2019 Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Standard Preview

Over the past decade, Harley-Davidson has continually updated its touring models with the latest in technology and luxury in mind, from rider aids to giants screens that display whatever information a rider may need to serious cargo space.

For 2019, Harley-Davidson has released a touring model that takes a step back from all the luxury amenities and offers a rawer touring experience.

2019 Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Standard for saleThe Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Standard is what Harley calls a “Dressed down Dresser,” a motorcycle that focuses on the “fundamental riding experience inspired by Harley-Davidson’s Grand American Touring roots.”

In most basic terms, the Electra Glide Standard is a stripped-down Electra Glide Ultra Classic. Powered by the Milwaukee-Eight 107, the Standard arrives with minimal features and trim – the basic essentials that help keep the price below $19,000.

The Electra Glide Standard arrives with:

  • Batwing fairing
  • Chrome trim
  • Standard saddlebags
  • Cast aluminum wheels
  • Chrome accents are added in high-impact design areas
  • Polished rocker, cam and derby covers
  • Select blacked out components

“To express the stripped-back essence of the Electra Glide Standard we focused on finishes that were simple, timeless, and fundamental to Harley-Davidson’s touring line,” said Harley-Davidson’s Vice President of Styling & Design, Brad Richards.

“Chrome was added to key components and complimented by polished and blacked out parts. The rocker, cam, and derby covers are finished with chrome to emphasize the V-Twin shape of the Milwaukee-Eight 107 engine. In addition, they add a dose of nostalgia that draws a through-line all the way back to the first Electra Glide.”

The Electra Glide Standard model is available in one color, Vivid Black, and has a price tag of $18,999 (MSRP).
