Harley-Davidson celebrates 120 years with new model releases

Harley-Davidson is celebrating 120 years in style with the release of new 2023 models.

New models include the CVO Road Glide Limited Anniversary models and six additional limited edition motorcycles with the 120e anniversary commemorative paint, finishes and details.

“Since 1903, Harley-Davidson has been a pioneer in the design, technology and performance of American motorcycles, and today marks the beginning of a year-long celebration of Harley-Davidson’s 120th anniversary.” said Jochen Zeitz, chairman, president and CEO of Harley-Davidson. “We are excited to share the first release of 2023 Harley-Davidson motorcycles, with more to come later in the year. 2023 will be an unforgettable milestone for the company, celebrating Harley-Davidson’s history, culture and community – we hope you can join us.”

120th anniversary models

The very limited edition super-premium CVO Road Glide Limited Anniversary model celebrates 120 years of craftsmanship with one of the most intricate paint schemes ever offered by Harley-Davidson. Panels of Heirloom Red are applied over a base coat of Anniversary Black, each outlined with a bright red pinstripe and a hand-applied gold paint scallop. Subtle details added in the panels show the head and wings of a soaring eagle. The gold-plated tank medallion features an Art Deco version of the eagle, an iconic Harley-Davidson design element. Other details include luxurious Alcantara seating surfaces with gold and red contrast stitching, gold drivetrain inserts, and bright red rocker boxes and pushrod tube collars. Only 1,500 bikes will be produced for worldwide distribution, each numbered with a laser-etched panel on the fuel tank console.

This commemorative design is offered on the following serialized models:

  • Ultra Limited Anniversary (production limited to 1,300 units worldwide)
  • Tri Glide® Ultra Anniversary (1,100 Samples)
  • Street Glide® Special Anniversary (1,600 copies)
  • Special Anniversary Road Glide® (1,600 copies)
