HARLEY-DAVIDSON KICKS OFF ITS ANNIVERSARY YEAR BY UNVEILING NEW MODELS FOR 2023
To celebrate its 120th anniversary, Harley-Davidson is unveiling a full lineup of highly limited Anniversary models. These include the CVO Road Glide Limited Anniversary and six other models that score with exclusive 120th Anniversary paint schemes and 120th Anniversary features. The portfolio also includes the fully updated Breakout performance cruiser, the new Nightster Special and the Freewheeler bathed in deep black.
The 120th Anniversary models
CVO Road Glide Limited Anniversary
With a complex paint job, the strictly limited CVO Road Glide Limited Anniversary celebrates 120 years of Harley-Davidson. Layers of Heirloom Red are applied to a black basecoat and decorated with bright red pinstripes and hand-applied gold-colored ornaments. Discreetly incorporated into the painted surfaces, the viewer can make out the head and wings of a soaring eagle. The gold-colored tank medallion presents an eagle in Art Deco style. Other features of the machine include Alcantara seating surfaces trimmed with gold and red contrast stitching, gold-colored inserts on the engine, and bright red elements on the rocker boxes and pushrod covers.
For six other limited-edition anniversary models, the Motor Company is offering a different 120th Anniversary paint scheme, with color and finish inspired by early Harley-Davidson motorcycles. The base paint of each model is classic, glossy Heirloom Red. It is complemented by darker, shaded-effect Midnight Crimson and trimmed with bright red pinstripes. The tank logo presents an Art Deco-style eagle, the seats are colored red on the flanks as well as an embroidered gold Harley-Davidson logo, and the drivetrain is adorned with Red Fade inserts.

The trike Freewheeler is dipped in black
The Freewheeler gets a new look for 2023, dipped in deep black. On the front end, headlight housing, fuel tank console, hand and foot levers, engine and exhaust system, black-coated components replace the silver or chrome ones previously used.
The new gloss black cast-spoke wheels also add performance style. At the rear, two 18-inch wheels replace the 15-inch examples previously used. The result is a completely new hot rod look.
