Harley Davidson. The legendary, and I mean legendary American motorcycle company that at one point defined motorcycling in America and the world. A motorcycle that epitomizes American excess and masculinity. The company has such a cult following that people paint the logo on their bodies. A company that created exclusive biker communities and made the owner feel special and on top of the world. One of the oldest motorcycle manufacturers, this company certainly needs no introduction. Your biker gang is incomplete without at least one of them.
Nightster S 120th Anniversary Edition
But why am I talking about Harley-Davidson all of a sudden? That’s because one of the most iconic motorcycles in the Harley-Davidson line-up, the Sportster line-up, which holds historical significance, the Nightster, gets a beautiful and unique 120th anniversary edition. The Nightster will be the third liquid-cooled model in the current Sportster lineup. It won’t be much different from the regular, but will get different visual touches like a special paint scheme and all-black bodywork with retro Harley-Davidson imagery.
So, what else is Harley bringing? Leaked documents have revealed that Harley-Davidson is set to unveil 120th anniversary edition models in the Softail and Touring model lineup. The Softail family will get two special editions in the form of the Fatboy and the Heritage Classic, both powered by the 1,868cc Milwaukee-Eight 114 V-twin engine. The Touring model line-up will consist of four models that will receive the 120th anniversary treatment with the Street Glide Special, Road Glide Special, Ultra Limited and CVO Road Glide Limited. Of these bikes, only the CVO Road Glide Limited uses the 1,917cc Milwaukee-Eight 117 engine and all the others use the same Milwaukee-Eight 114 V-twin engine as the aforementioned Softail models. But why is Harley doing this? Harley-Davidson will celebrate its 120th anniversary this year and as part of the celebration, the manufacturer will introduce a number of special editions to its Softail and Touring model lineups.
