Why Harley-Davidson motorcycle collections matter

The significance of limited-edition Harley-Davidson motorcycles stems from the blended emphasis on independence, individualism, and personal expression. Going further than personalization, however, motorcycles such as the Harley-Davidsons in this year’s collections represent artistic expression that communicates freedom, adventure, and celebration.

There are likely collectors who snap up limited edition Harley-Davidsons for display or for the satisfaction of ownership, but the appeal of these curated semi-custom machines is sufficiently broad that they can elicit smiles and sparkles in the eyes of many who have never ridden a motorcycle, let alone owned a Harley-Davidson.

The 2024 Harley-Davidson Hydra-Glide Revival model

In 1949 Harley-Davidson introduced the Hydra-Glide suspension on its E and F models, which improved road handling, especially at high speeds on the new interstate highway system. FL models also gained a comfortable new saddle, which added to rider comfort. Better roads opened more possibilities to see the country and the Hydra-Glide smoothed the ride.

The 2024 Hydra-Glide Revival model, with a starting price of $24,999, is a limited edition of 1,750 individually numbered motorcycles. This 75th-anniversary model in Redline Red and Birch White has an upright riding position, saddlebags, floorboards, and a detachable windshield. Styled like the original, the bike has a modern Milwaukee-Eight 114 V-Twin with a Screaming Eagle High-Flow air cleaner, a monoshock rear suspension, cruise control, LED lights, and a standard anti-lock braking system (ABS).

2024 Harley-Davidson Tobacco Fade Collection

The Tobacco Fade Collection includes three 2024 Harley-Davidson motorcycles with a distinctive paint treatment. If the painted tanks remind you of sunburst-style guitar finishes, that’s intentional. Celebrating the energy of live rock ‘n roll is the key to understanding the spirit of this collection, which will be limited to 2,000 units of each of the three models in the 2024 Harley-Davidson Tobacco Fade Collection.

What does interval mean in Formula 1?
Time intervals have three different purposes in Formula 1.

Formula 1 racing is the top level of motorsports and is gaining fans rapidly in the United States. Since F1 racing began in 1950, it has always been an international competition. Formula 1 is governed by The Fedération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA). The FIA F1 Regulations specify the technical, sporting, and financial operations of the ten teams in each year's F1 season. Some people find F1 racing hard to understand because certain terms aren't used in typical ways. For example, the word "interval" has three meanings in F1 racing, all related to time between cars, but for different purposes. We break out the three meanings of time intervals below.
Why time intervals are important in F1 racing

The time gaps between cars in Formula 1 races are often measured in fractions of a second as 20 cars speed around tracks, often reaching speeds over 200 mph. Sometimes, the time difference between the first and last cars finishing a race can be just a few seconds, showing how closely they compete. It's not unusual for cars to finish within tenths or hundredths of a second of each other, so timing is crucial in F1 racing.

Maserati rounds off its 2025 Folgore lineup with an electric GranCabrio
Maserati's sports convertible goes all-electric
Maserati GranCabrio Folgore

Maserati has unveiled the final piece of its 2024 electrification puzzle in the form of the GranCabrio Folgore -- an all-electric version of its new convertible. The battery-powered roadster was unveiled as part of “Folgore Days,” a celebration of Maserati’s new electric lineup held in Italy’s motor valley. Folgore Days itself is following on from the Formula E racing weekend at Misano World Circuit -- with Maserati being the only luxury brand represented in the electric racing series.

The Trident has gone all out with its latest offering, producing what it claims is the fastest electric convertible on the market. It can do 0-60 in 2.8 seconds and is capable of hitting speeds of just over 180 miles per hour. As with many of Maserati’s sportier offerings, “Corsa Mode” is available and is the easiest way to get the most out of your electric Maserati. The vehicle produces just over 750 horsepower, though with boost, this can briefly reach around 820 horsepower. So the GranCabrio sits alongside its hard-top sibling as the most powerful vehicle Maserati currently offers.
