2023 Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Highway King Touring Bike Review

We drew inspiration for the 2023 Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Highway King Touring Bike from those nostalgic road trips across the countryside. Highway King combines timeless design cues from our legendary 1968 FLH Electra Glide with up-to-date amenities and powerful performance. The Highway King personifies the longing for a simpler time on the open road.

As the third release in the Harley-Davidson Icons Motorcycle Collection, the Electra Glide Highway King is a throwback to simpler times. An absolute Harley-Davidson classic, the 1968 FLH Electra Glide model controlled the road in an age of paper maps and 15-cent burgers; it has laced wheels, wide-whitewall tires, a two-tone windscreen, a single suspension seat, and carefully picked colors. The Electra Glide Highway King limited edition model fuses the style of the 1960s with the luxury and innovation of a contemporary Harley-Davidson® Grand American Touring motorcycle.
