First Glimpse at the Harley-Davidson Enthusiast Motorcycle Collection

The 2024 Harley-Davidson Tobacco Fade Enthusiast Motorcycle Collection introduces three new limited-edition models: the Tri Glide Ultra, Low Rider ST, and Ultra Limited. Harley-Davidson has perfected the art of limited-edition releases, whether viewed as exclusive offerings for fans or as savvy marketing tactics. Much like their predecessors, these new machines are anticipated to fly off the shelves.

The term "tobacco fade" may ring a bell for guitarists, as it mirrors the classic color scheme seen on instruments like the Gibson Les Paul. Mimicking the timeless "sunburst" pattern, Harley has applied a metallic gold base with a sunburst fade on each panel of the new limited-edition bikes. A caramel-colored pinstripe frames the fade area, while additional accents include fuel-tank medallions resembling vinyl records, guitar pick graphics on the front fenders, and Enthusiast Collection logos on the rear.

Priced at $25,899, the Low Rider ST kicks off the collection, featuring the same 117ci Milwaukee-Eight V-twin engine as the standard model. Next up is the $35,399 Ultra Limited, equipped with the classic batwing fairing, 114 Milwaukee-Eight engine, and full luggage. Finally, the $41,999 Tri Glide Ultra, also boasting a 114ci engine, receives the Tobacco Fade treatment. These updates are purely cosmetic, with no alterations to mechanical components or equipment levels.

Each model in the Tobacco Fade collection will be produced in a limited run of 2,000 units, continuing the theme of the Enthusiast Motorcycle Collection, which last year showcased the Fast Johnnie variants of the Street Glide ST, Road Glide ST, and Low Rider ST. This ongoing series promises future limited editions, each with its unique theme.
