How Much Power Does the 2024 Harley Street Glide Make?

Measuring max power output from Harley-Davidson’s Milwaukee-Eight 117 on the Cycle World dyno.

Harley-Davidson updated its Grand American Touring models, the Road Glide and Street Glide, for 2024. Updates include revised styling, improved comfort, a luxurious infotainment system, and increased power. Styling updates are minor with revisions to the gas tank, lighting, and body panels. The 2024 Harley-Davidson Street Glide also receives the new Skyline OS infotainment system with a 12.3-inch full-color TFT display.

Harley-Davidson’s 2024 Street Glide utilizes the Milwaukee-Eight 117. But the Street Glide’s powerplant differs from the 117ci V-twin engine used in the Breakout and Low Rider models for two reasons. One: The Street Glide benefits from modifications to the intake and exhaust system for increased power. Two: This variation of the Milwaukee-Eight 117 receives liquid-cooled cylinder heads for improved heat dissipation, an inheritance from last year’s CVO Road Glide and CVO Street Glide. Displacement, compression ratio, bore, and stroke remain unchanged from the Breakout and Low Rider models.
