Harley-Davidson announced it’s 2021 touring lineup last month, but we can confirm the company has one more model up it’s sleeve, and we’re not talking about the Pan America. Harley-Davidson’s 2021 model virtual presentation included a teaser image of a fuel tank console with the word “Revival” written on it. Motorcycle.com can now confirm that the Harley-Davidson Revival will be a 2021 touring model powered by the Milwaukee-Eight V-Twin engine.
The confirmation comes via the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency which certified the Revival alongside its returning touring models. The filing includes both the M-8 107 and 114 displacements, but Harley-Davidson typically reserves the larger engine for the Specials. Unless Harley-Davidson breaks away from this nomenclature, we can assume the 2021 Revival will use the same 107ci (1746cc) version of the Milwaukee-Eight as the Electra Glide Standard, Road Glide, Road King and Street Glide.
We don’t know when Harley-Davidson will announce the Revival. The company’s immediate focus is on launching the Pan America 1250 on Feb. 22, and Harley-Davidson will likely want to put enough space between its first adventure-touring bike and the Revival. We’re also getting to the point where manufacturers are announcing their first 2022 models, so Harley-Davidson may not want to wait too long.
Harley-Davidson is set to announce its year-end fiscal results tomorrow, along with the first details of the company’s new Hardwire business plan. This may include some details of the Revival.
