We saw Harley’s returning models announced earlier this month but now the Milwaukee brand has revealed the ones with updates for 2024. The two with the most significant revisions are the reworked 2024 Harley-Davidson Street Glide and 2024 Road Glide, both getting many of the same styling, suspension, and electronics upgrades that initially appeared on their CVO Street Glide and Road Glide counterparts last year (both of which return for 2024 unchanged).

The redesigned 2024 Street Glide (and Road Glide) now rolls with the more powerful Milwaukee-Eight 117 engine and upgraded Showa suspension.

Headline news for both the Street Glide and Road Glide models this year is the bigger Milwaukee-Eight 117 powerplant, which adds new liquid-cooled cylinder heads as well as a new cooling system. It’s a major upgrade from last year’s standard bikes, which rolled with the M-8 107 powerplant and produced just 86 hp at 5,020 rpm (claimed); for the M-8 117 mill, we’re looking at a healthier 105 hp and 130 lb.-ft. of torque (again, H-D’s claimed numbers). While there’s no variable valve timing on this engine as on the CVO’s VVT 121ci engine, it’s still a nice boost.

Harley also says the bikes are lighter as well as more powerful and comfortable than the outgoing models, and 2024 also sees the addition of a new infotainment system for both Glides, complete with a new 200-watt audio amplifier to power a pair of fairing-mounted speakers. You now navigate the menu via a huge 12.3-inch TFT color touchscreen, which is where you can also select from four ride modes: Rain, Road, Sport, and Custom. This giant screen is also where you’ll interact with the infotainment systems on both models, as it replaces all the previous analog instrumentation and most switches.

The visuals have been tweaked too, with modern, more sculpted styling cues, particularly in the Street Glide’s redesigned fork-mounted fairing and the Road Glide’s frame-mounted unit. Both fairings also offer improved air management, according to H-D, while still keeping the classic batwing and shark nose profiles. The fuel tanks also feature a new shape, while the one-piece seat’s shape has been redesigned and the padding improved for long-haul comfort.

Redesigned fairing on the 2024 Road Glide also features a new windshield with air management and revised LED lighting arrangement.

Final Encore—Bizzarrini P538

RACEPRO201308 p1

Photo: Casey AnnisThe 1950s and 1960s were a time of rapid change in both the road and racecar world. Technology was advancing quickly and with this advancement, it became increasingly harder and harder for a lone individual—either engineer or visionary—to be solely responsible for a complete automobile. Yet, some amazing vehicles were given birth during this time by some of the last of these automotive prodigies. One such automotive savant was Italian Giotto Bizzarrini. A tenacious and talented engineer and development driver, Bizzarrini either created or played a major role in some of the most iconic cars of the 1960s, including several built under his own name. Any true understanding of Bizzarrini’s cars, however, first requires an understanding of the man, as the two are virtually inseparable.

Born Survivor

Giotto Bizzarrini was born in June 6, 1926, in Quercianella, near Livorno, Italy. Born into a long line of engineers, it is perhaps not surprising that Bizzarrini would gravitate toward things mechanical. However, his early childhood years were more dominated by soccer and hunting, at least until World War II intervened. When the war broke out, Giotto’s father took up arms against the Germans, leaving young Giotto behind to fend for his family. During the war years, times were tough and much of what the Bizzarrini family had to eat ended up coming from Giotto’s hunting prowess. Bizzarrini would look back on these years of deprivation and state, “That period really influenced me for the rest of my life. It made me into a survivor, somewhat of a maverick.”

Saturday special: An elegant three-wheeler with a Mazda engine

three wheeler mazda 745x497 1

Custom three-wheeler with Mazda engine and motorcycle parts
Although Bike EXIF is dedicated to art on two wheels, our automotive interests are wide-ranging. Our publisher has an enviable car collection, our workshop editor, Dean, is a vintage snowmobile fiend, and I’ve been in love with the Morgan Super 3 ever since I test-drove it at the Malle Mile. So today we’re bending the rules, and bringing you a stunning three-wheeler that’s only really thirty percent motorcycle.

Dubbed the ‘MAC 2,’ it’s the second handmade three-wheeler from Indonesian engineer and vintage bike enthusiast, Cosmas Lili Sudrajat. Cosmas has a major crush on Morgan’s V-twin-powered three-wheelers—but they’re expensive and hard to come by in Indonesia. Luckily, he knows his way around a workshop.

The V-twin powerplant bolted to the front of the MAC 2 isn’t a motorcycle engine though. It’s out of a Mazda B600—a pint-sized, Japanese-made station wagon that was a hit in Indonesia in the 1960s. “The Mazda’s air-cooled 600 cc V-twin engine is the perfect size for a three-wheeler,” says Cosmas.

Once the Mazda B600 had been torn down to just its chassis and motor, Cosmas chopped off the rear half of the frame and installed a repurposed Honda swingarm. Repurposed 18” laced motorcycle wheels do duty up front, modified with cast aluminum MAC-branded hubcaps.

The 2024 season welcomes the return of numerous racing favorites, including Andrew Morrow, who readies himself for a step up to the EU Challenge in 2024, and Tom Fleming, the EU Challenge rookie who went on to win the World Championship at Finali Mondiali in Mugello last October. With both drivers showing great talent, the stage is set for a hotly contested season opener.

Several exciting newcomers also make their debut in the series this year, hoping to seize the initiative and pilot their Ferrari 488 Challenge Evo race cars to victory in the final solus year for the 488 model, before the introduction of the new 296 Challenge in 2025.
