Celebrating 115 years of freedom for all

In 1903, four young men in Milwaukee put a motor in a bicycle frame, and riders from all walks of life have been coming back to cut loose ever since. One hundred and fifteen years later, it’s time to celebrate.

We’re returning to the grassroots passion that made the sport of motorcycling great by throwing parties for the people. Flat-track racing, hill climbs, beach racing, drag racing, street parties, bands, food and rides. We’re holding events in our hometown of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and other locations around the world. All who love the freedom of two wheels are invited to join the celebration.

We’re also marking the occasion the best way we know how — by building 115th Anniversary metal. Two limited-edition, serialised designs with a 115th Anniversary Eagle and special anniversary paints are available on nine models for those who want to do the anniversary big. Destined to become machines for collectors years down the road, they’re sure to draw a crowd for those who ride one to the celebration.

Two Limited Edition 115th Anniversary paint schemes will be available on select 2018 models. The divergent styles will appeal to a broader audience of customers and, to add exclusivity to each model, all paint sets will be serialized.

Harley-Davidson unleashes five new touring bikes with more power, comfort & handling to go the distance

Three New CVO Models Feature Largest-Ever Stock Engine Displacement

MILWAUKEE (Aug. 22, 2017) – The 2018 Harley-Davidson Motorcycle lineup introduces the most robust array of custom Touring bikes the company has ever produced, boasting show-stopping style and plush comfort ready to attack rough city streets or winding country roads. Three new completely restyled Touring models enter the limited-edition Custom Vehicle Operations™ family with the largest-ever stock engine from Harley-Davidson, while new Street Glide® Special and Road Glide® Special models get sinister, blacked-out styling.

“Our new Touring motorcycles will be some of our most sought-after bikes in 2018,” said Harley-Davidson Vice President of Product Planning and Portfolio Management, Dave Foley. “For CVO, we’ve rebooted the styling tone of the overall lineup and added some exclusive performance enhancements. And our two new custom baggers are the most aggressive, on-trend Touring bikes in the market. I can’t wait for riders to throw a leg over and experience the new rides for themselves.”

2018 Custom Vehicle Operations Motorcycles

The CVO tradition of giving customers the ultimate in Harley-Davidson styling, innovation and performance continues in 2018 with the CVO Limited, the CVO Street Glide and the CVO Road Glide models. Each model offers its owners a fully customized, limited-edition motorcycle straight from the factory with a two-year unlimited warranty.

Starting with the largest stock engine displacement ever offered by the Motor Company, and available only in CVO models, all three bikes have upgraded Screamin’ Eagle® power and exclusive bragging rights with the Milwaukee-Eight® engine in a new 117-cubic-inch displacement, rated at up to 125 ft. lbs. of torque.

CVO models are limited in number and this year’s models feature some of the most distinctively crafted paint offerings the company has ever designed and produced. Also new for all three CVO models is an advanced integrated communication technology that features a wireless headset interface module. Customers can use the included Bluetooth® headset to communicate with the motorcycle Infotainment system, their passenger and other riders.

“The level of fit, finish and performance of CVO has never been higher,” added Foley. “CVO owners will appreciate the intricate details like the new color trim on the rocker box lowers that marks the CVO engine’s exclusivity. It features a deep orange finish specially developed for placement on the engine that is unique in the motorcycle industry.”

“The new direction our Styling department took with the design formula on the bikes is truly seismic,” added Harley-Davidson Vice President of Styling and Design, Brad Richards. “Take a look at the level of finish on any of the nine CVO paint sets, but especially the Fade on the CVO Limited, the depth of the paint layers and how it glows in the sunlight is just stunning.”
