A Glimpse into a Harley-Davidson Enthusiast's Motorcycle Collection

For guitar enthusiasts, the term "tobacco fade" likely rings a bell. Known as "tobacco burst" in the musical realm, this color scheme has graced iconic instruments like the Gibson Les Paul for decades, offering a subdued take on the classic sunburst pattern. Now, Harley-Davidson draws inspiration from this timeless aesthetic with their latest limited-edition motorcycles.

Inspired by Heritage, Crafted for Enthusiasts

Following the success of the 120th Anniversary models in 2023, the new Harley-Davidson bikes feature fade paintwork that blends the primary color into a darker edge, reminiscent of a guitar's sunburst finish. The Tobacco Fade collection showcases a metallic gold hue with a sunburst fade on each panel, accented by a caramel-colored pinstripe. Emphasizing their musical inspiration, each bike sports a fuel-tank medallion resembling a vinyl record and a guitar pick graphic on the front fender, complemented by an Enthusiast Collection logo on the rear.

Limited Edition, Maximum Appeal

The collection comprises three faired models, designed to showcase the intricate paintwork. Starting with the $25,899 Low Rider ST, featuring the potent 117ci Milwaukee-Eight V-twin engine, enthusiasts can also opt for the $35,399 Ultra Limited, equipped with a classic batwing fairing, 114ci Milwaukee-Eight engine, and full luggage. For those craving a trike experience, the $41,999 Tri Glide Ultra offers the same 114ci powerplant with the distinct Tobacco Fade finish.

A Commitment to Craftsmanship

With each model limited to just 2,000 units, the Tobacco Fade series continues Harley-Davidson's tradition of the Enthusiast Motorcycle Collection, following last year's popular Fast Johnnie editions. As part of an ongoing series, future limited editions are anticipated, each with its unique theme, promising enthusiasts new reasons to celebrate Harley-Davidson craftsmanship and heritage.
