2020 Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Standard Review: Stripped-Down

The 2020 Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Standard serves several purposes. Its stripped-down nature makes it an ideal starting point for a custom build, as it gives you access to the Milwaukee-Eight 107 powerplant in the Touring chassis with the batwing fairing for under $19k—$3000 less than the Street Glide. For urban riders, the Electra Glide Standard has a beefy 17-inch front Dunlop to handle decaying infrastructure, and none of the fairing-mounted touring-oriented electronics that aren’t essential for getting around town in style. Also, it’s the only Electra Glide on offer from Harley-Davidson for 2020. We weren’t in the mood for a build, so we tested it as an urban beast.

Ergonomically, the 2020 Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Standard is a fantastic ride in the city. The low seat height matches up with comfortably pulled back bars and traditionally forward-places floorboards. The heel-toe shifter adds to the fun, and the fork-mounted batwing fairing makes for an orderly seating area.
