The strictly limited Harley anniversary motorcycles
It’s our 115th anniversary and we’re celebrating it in the way we care most – building very special anniversary bikes.
In 1903, the first three Harley-Davidson motorcycles were produced and sold. To celebrate its 115th anniversary in 2018, the Motor Company will be presenting ten elaborately enhanced 115th Anniversary models from the Sportster, Softail and Touring ranges, which feature special features and are presented in two extraordinary Anniversary liveries with corresponding Anniversary Graphics and emblems. The number of 115th Anniversary models is strictly limited and each machine carries the serial number of the respective special model, which is applied in different places depending on the type.
Numerous other features distinguish the 115th Anniversary models from their respective series counterparts. Depending on the model, these include, for example, perforated seats with color-coordinated seams, cloisonné tank medallions or special Anniversary Tank Graphics as well as the Anniversary insignia on the air filter or ignition cover.
As usual, Harley-Davidson offers the appropriate H-D 115th apparel for the Anniversary models, which is available in the Thunderbike online shop.
The Denim Anniversary models (ANX)
Harley-Davidson celebrates its 115th anniversary with Anniversary insignia that reflect contemporary trends in customization: as an anniversary hue for the models whose type code ends on “ANX”, the company created the new matt finish Legend Blue Denim, with a dark finish combined. In addition, in the style of tattoos designed graphics that present an eagle along with the Bar and Shield logo. They adorn the right side of the fuel tank, while a Harley-Davidson “115th Anniversary” lettering is emblazoned on the tank’s left flank.
On the panel of the 115th Anniversary Street Glide Special you will also find the asymmetrically applied depiction of the eagle with the Bar and Shield logo. The subtle perforation of the seat cover, its blue seams and the embossed “HDMC” lettering are further features of the anniversary models. The numbering of the machines is applied by hand at the factory.
In the Denim Anniversary variant, Harley-Davidson offers the models Forty-Eight, Fat Boy 114, Breakout 114 and Street Glide Special.
The Two Tone Anniversary models (ANV)
For models whose type code ends with “ANV”, the Motor Company combines the redesigned Anniversary color Legend Blue with the classic black Harley color Vivid Black. Triple Pinstripes crown this Two Tone paint version and emphasize the individual contour of each machine from the front to the rear. Symmetrical to the Pinstripes, the flanks of the Tour-Pak also carry a “115th Anniversary” logo on the Tri Glide Ultra and Ultra Limited models.
The cloisonné tank medallion of these machines shows an eagle wearing the Bar and Shield logo in its claws. The elaborate processing of the metal testifies to great attention to detail. The seat cover of these models was perforated and provided with blue stitching and embossed “HDMC” lettering. “115 Anniversary” logos are also attached to the fueling console, ignition cover, and air cleaner housing.
Depending on the model, the serial number of the ANV types is laser engraved in different areas of the bike.
In this Anniversary variant the models Fat Boy 114, Heritage Classic 114, Street Glide, Ultra Limited and Tri Glide Ultra are available.
115th Anniversary Breakout 114
Maximum strength street muscle
The new 115th Anniversary Breakout 114 is one of the models Harley-Davidson celebrates its 115th anniversary. It has all the features that already characterize the base model, the Breakout 114.

The surface of the seat was subtly perforated. Their seams are designed to match the paint in blue. Also in blue is the lettering “Harley-Davidson 115th Anniversary” on the glossy black coated ignition cover.
As in the case of the Breakout 114, a Milwaukee Eight engine with 1868 cc displacement and two balance shafts, held in black and chrome, provides propulsion. It develops an output of 69 kW (94 hp) at 5020 rpm and a maximum torque of 155 Nm at 3000 rpm. The Cruise Drive six-speed gearbox and a robust timing belt transfer the power to the road. The engine and transmission are rigidly embedded in the new, extra-stiff Softail chassis in the rigid frame look, which is equipped with new, perfectly tuned suspension components. At the rear, a new triangular rocker is used, which was equipped with a new, concealed central strut. Its spring preload can be adjusted hydraulically via an externally arranged rotary control. At the front there is a new “Dual Bending Valve” telescopic fork with a 49 mm stanchion diameter, which is set at a 36 ° fork angle when stretched. In addition to handling and comfort, the tilting freedom benefits from the new chassis. It grew by 3.5 percent compared to a 2017 breakout, while weight could be reduced by around 15 kilograms. At the front and rear rotate black “Gasser II” cast wheels with ten double spokes and polished rim edges. The 21-inch front wheel is frosted with a Michelin 130, the rear is a 18-inch 240 Michelin used. To emphasize the visual impact of the wheels, both fenders were chopped. A powerful ABS-assisted brake system with two brake discs and new rear brake calliper is responsible for the deceleration.
The top of the tank was kept clean and the tachometer is an LCD display integrated into the handlebar clamp. The seating position is defined by the low-seated bench with removable pillion pad, the pre-routed footpegs and the flat Drag Style handlebar. The latter is as black as the turn signals, the side covers, the fender holder, the dip tubes and the new, flat and very bright LED headlights. At the rear, the turn signals assume the function of the rear and brake lights. The machine comes standard with security system including immobilizer and alarm system. No ignition key is required to start it, as a keyless ignition system is on board. A USB port is available for charging mobile devices.

Its vibrations are reduced by two balance shafts so that it can be rigidly connected to the new, much stiffer Softail frame. Its lines are reminiscent of classic rigid frames from bygone eras. To achieve this optical effect, a newly constructed triangular rocker is used, which is connected to a likewise new, located below the seat central strut. The spring preload is hydraulically adjusted. Also new is the “Dual Bending Valve” telescopic fork with 49 mm standpipe diameter.

115th Anniversary Forty-Eight
Low-slung dark custom attitude with heavy-hitting style.
In 1948, the S 125 appeared, the first Harley-Davidson with that succinctly compact tank, which was later to be nicknamed “Peanut Tank” and whose striking proportions inspired generations of Customizern. In the tradition of this custom culture is the Sportster Forty-Eight: a stylish bike in the characteristic look of a purist bobber – and of course with a Peanut Tank! For 2018 – the 115th year in the brand’s history – Harley-Davidson also offers the top seller Sportster models in this anniversary edition.
The 115th Anniversary Forty Eight has all the advantages that are already featured in the standard Forty Eight. In addition, it is in the new matt varnish Legend Blue Denim, which is reserved for the anniversary models.

The Shorty Dual Exhaust System produces the matching American V-Twin sound. The heat shields of their mufflers were slotted to allow the underlying black coating to protrude. The low-lying chassis with its wide fork is equipped with light alloy cast spoke wheels under close-cut fenders.
On the black 16-inch rims on the front and rear rotate exposed tires, 130 (front) and 150 mm (rear) wide tires. The traditionally shaped 2.1 gallon (7.95 liter) tank is just as influential on the Forty-Eight as its perforated frame cover and solo seat. Together with the pre-routed footpegs and the low profile handlebar, the slim saddle contributes to the cool sitting position on the machine. The under-the-handle rearview mirror and fork-mounted turn signals provide an extra dose of custom feel, while the rear turn signals function as rear lights and brake lights to emphasize the minimalist appearance. A pillion seat cushion plus foot pegs and a sissy bar are among the many original accessories that allow the 115th Anniversary Forty-Eight to be further customized on request. Their thoughtful as well as practical features include the automatic turn signal reset, the integrated connection for a battery charger, the security system with automatically activating alarm system and immobilizer and the Keyless Ignition System, which makes an ignition key obsolete.
The machine is manufactured in an edition of 2400 units. Of these, 625 are destined for markets in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
