115th Anniversary Motorcycles Celebrate H-D History with a Modern Twist

08/30/17

All who love the freedom of two wheels are invited to join Harley-Davidson’s 115th anniversary celebration in 2018. Leading up to the celebration, we’re marking the occasion the best way we know how — by building limited-edition, serialized 115th anniversary motorcycles available for the first time ever in two distinct paint schemes, as well as with a one-of-a-kind CVO™ Anniversary model.

 

For those who like the classic Harley-Davidson look, we’re offering the Legend Blue and Vivid Black two-tone paint set, which features a triple pinstripe that follows the motorcycle’s contours from front to back. The Tri-Glide® Ultra and Ultra Limited feature “115th Anniversary” script on the side of the TourPak® in line with the pinstripes.

Look at the tank and you’ll see a detailed, multi-metal cloisonné medallion featuring an eagle holding the Bar & Shield™ in its talons. You’ll only find this intricacy on our Legend Blue and Vivid Black 115th Anniversary motorcycles.

 

We’re also bringing the anniversary theme to life in an even edgier way with Legend Blue Denim paint that complements both the chrome and dark finishes of our 115th Anniversary models. With this paint scheme, riders will get a bold tattoo-like graphic that stretches asymmetrically across the top and right side of the tank or fairing, with “Harley-Davidson” in script on the left side of the tank.,

 

The Legend Blue Denim models are serialized with numbers that have been hand-applied by paint shop specialists directly at the assembly facility.

 

Harley-Davidson’s premium line of luxury CVO motorcycles also get the anniversary treatment with the exclusive CVO™ Limited, featuring darker Odyssey Blue Paint with a hand-painted metal leaf effect, pinstripes, color-matched inner fairing and a special anniversary edition tank medallion.

 

The more you look at the lineup of bold new 115th anniversary models, the more premium features you begin to see, including color-matched seat stitching, anniversary-detailed air cleaners and cam covers, and instrumentation details that are unique to each model.
