A Comparison Between the Harley Davidson Electra Glide® and Street Glide

When looking for the right Harley Davidson motorcycle, you may have come across several models. With dozens of models available, you may be curious about several ones, such as the Electra Glide® and Street Glide models. So what’s the difference between the two? At Twisted Cycles, we look into both the Harley Davidson Electra Glide® and Street Glide models to find out the difference.

Harley Davidson Electra Glide®

To start, the Electra Glide® offers one of the more luxurious experiences that’s geared towards those long road trips. Originally built in 1965, the model is a staple in the touring community. Being a two-up long-haul cycle, it has the classic Harley Davidson look and is prepped for a cross-country ride. Being a Harley Davidson, the model has a V-Twin Engine we’ve all come to love. Plus, it does come with a Two-UP seat for a passenger as well as a tour pack for your gear. However, for a well-conditioned model, you may be paying more for its luxury.

Meanwhile, the Harley Davidson Street Glide combines casual cruises around your town but pairs it with the ability for a comfortable ride on long highway trips. Introduced in 2006, the model maintains a classic look but in a streamlined and stripped-down manner. Various infotainment systems are available on models – depending on the year. Like the Electra Glide, it too offers a Milwaukee-Eight V-Twin Engine, which has superb horsepower. However, it has a lower stance from the Electra Glide and sportier seats for both riders.
