2024 Harley-Davidson Hydra Glide Revival Lands in Malaysia

The 2024 Harley-Davidson Hydra Glide Revival has arrived in Malaysia.

As the name suggests, the model is an homage, in fact it celebrates, the release of the first Hydra Glide in 1949. The model was a groundbreaking model for the Motor Company, with featured telescopic hydraulically damped forks. Add on the Panhead engine and it became the shape of Harley-Davidson motorcycles that have survived to this day.

“The 2024 Hydra-Glide Revival model celebrates the 75th anniversary of the 1949 introduction of the Hydra-Glide telescopic front suspension for Harley-Davidson E and F models,” Harley-Davidson notes in its official press release. “When Hydra-Glide equipped models were introduced, the saddle of a smooth-riding Harley-Davidson FL motorcycle was an exciting way for many Americans to explore the country on the new network of interstate highways,” says Harley-Davidson.

Wearing a similar paint job from the ‘56 model including the classic “V” tank badges it is like riding through history. Another nice touch is the speedometer’s old-school aesthetic and it includes a custom insert on the bar risers, displaying the Hydra-Glide logo and each bike’s exclusive serial number (only 1,750 units will be manufactured). It also features a taller (and removable) two-tone windscreen versus the Heritage Classic, with a sleek color-matched lower piece.

The rider’s saddle is decked out with tassels, studs, fringe, and white seam piping with red contrast stitching. Hard-mounted saddlebags match the vibe with a tasseled and studded treatment. The luggage is lockable and water-resistant.

The 114ci Milwaukee-Eight V-twin (1,868cc) is fitted with a circular air cleaner just like the old days. The engine is rated at 94 hp at 4,750 rpm and 119 lb.-ft. of torque at 3,000 revs. Not enough power? Look through the Screamin’ Eagle catalogue.

The front suspension consists of a pair of 49mm telescopic fork with Showa’s dual-bending valve technology. A preload-adjustable shock is hidden under the rear fender while the laced wheels and brakes are pulled from the Heritage Classic.

The 2024 Harley-Davidson Hydra Glide Revival is priced from RM176,900. Please visit the Harley-Davidson Asia Facebook page for more details and updates.


Wahid's lust for motorcycles was spurred on by his late-Dad's love for his Lambretta on which he courted, married his mother, and took baby Wahid riding on it. He has since worked in the motorcycle and automotive industry for many years, before taking up riding courses and testing many, many motorcycles since becoming a motojournalist. Wahid likes to see things differently. What can you say about a guy who sees a road safety message in AC/DC's "Highway to Hell."
