Revving Up Tech: The 2024 Harley-Davidson Road Glide & Street Glide's Advanced Infotainment
Harley-Davidson, a name synonymous with freedom and power on the open road, has taken a giant leap into the future with its latest 2024 Road Glide and Street Glide models. The iconic motorcycle brand introduces an all-new suite of infotainment technology, centered around the groundbreaking Skyline OS, setting a new standard in motorcycle technology.
A Display Like No Other
At the heart of this technological revolution is the 12.3-inch TFT touch screen, proudly touted as the most tech-forward display ever offered on a Harley-Davidson motorcycle. This screen is not just a minor upgrade; it's a colossal leap, boasting a 90 percent size increase over the previous BOOM! Box GTS offers a staggering 400 percent more screen area.
Unmatched Interactivity and Durability
The TFT screen is coated with anti-reflective and anti-fingerprint materials, ensuring clarity and cleanliness. It's designed to replace the traditional analog instrumentation and several switches, streamlining the rider's interface with the bike. Notably, it's engineered to be unresponsive to rain or other natural elements, and its touch functionality works flawlessly even with gloved hands.
Customizable Interface for Enhanced Riding Experience
Riders can personalize their display with three screen options: Cruise, Sport, and Tour. Each setting offers a unique layout, displaying crucial information like speedometer, tachometer, fuel level, engine temperature, and even turn-by-turn navigation instructions through Apple CarPlay or the optional Harley-Davidson embedded navigation system. The high-contrast mode and customizable widgets further enhance the rider's control over their riding experience.
Advanced Voice Recognition and Smartphone Integration
The new voice recognition system in the 2024 models is more conversational, smoothly integrating with the embedded navigation app for effortless, prompt-based searching like finding a nearby gas station. The technology is fully compatible with Wireless Apple CarPlay, seamlessly connecting to the rider's iPhone.
Wi-Fi Connectivity and Bluetooth Integration
Skyline OS supports a Wi-Fi connection with the rider's device, offering access to weather and traffic information with the optional embedded navigation. It also eliminates the need for a separate WHIM module for Bluetooth headset connection, thanks to the built-in wireless receiver.
HomeLink Integration and Specialized Storage
An optional HomeLink-compatible Garage Door Opener allows riders to sync their bike with up to three garage doors in North America. Additionally, the Road Glide and Street Glide models feature ingeniously designed storage compartments with a USB port, providing secure and convenient storage for smartphones.
Immersive Audio Experience
The system supports playback from smartphone apps, HD radio, and AM/FM/DAB. Gone is the traditional whip antenna, replaced by an internal one, enhancing the bike's sleek look. EQ curves can be selected through the TFT screen, allowing riders to customize their audio experience.
The Power Behind the Tech
Complementing this array of technological advancements is the new variant of the Milwaukee-Eight 117 engine, promising a ride that's as thrilling as it is smooth.
The 2024 Harley-Davidson Road Glide and Street Glide are more than just motorcycles; they are a statement of innovation and a testament to Harley-Davidson's commitment to leading the pack in the motorcycle market. With the integration of the Skyline OS and its suite of advanced features, Harley-Davidson is not just keeping up with the times; they are setting a new standard for what it means to ride in style and with technological prowess.
