The seventh Anniversary Model is the CVO Road Glide Limited, being the only anniversary model with the larger 117 Cubic Inch M8 engine. Its paint is a bit different and can be described as Anniversary Black and Midnight Crimson fade. And when viewed in the sun there is a red highlight to the black. A subdued eagle split up between the fairing, tank, and bags.
Generally speaking, only about 3,000 to 1100 of each anniversary model will be released and they’ll all have serialized consoles.
The Breakout is returning to the lineup with that beautiful Milwaukee-Eight 117 V-Twin engine. This bike will have a very wide rear tire, coming in at 240mm, a 5-gallon gas tank, and a 36-degree front rake, which makes it a long, low, wide, modern cruiser.
The Nightster Special is the next new model for 2023. What’s so “Special” about this new Nightster? To start, it has a passenger pillion and footpegs to allow two-up riding. The handlebars and risers move the bars up and back for a more commanding rider position. It has a four-inch round TFT display, replacing the analog speedometer and segmented LCD indicators, allowing for BlueTooth connectivity and navigation. The Nightster Special is coming standard with cruise control, USB charging port, and you can add heated grips.
This new model is going to be a surprise for some. And for many out there, it is a long time coming. It is the all-new Road Glide 3 Trike. I’m going to say right up front that even if you’ve never been interested in trikes, this one is sure to turn your head a bit. Many riders have requested a Road Gide trike for years now and it looks like Harley made it happen. A lot of engineering went into making the first Harley trike with a frame-mounted fairing including things like the placement of the fairing to accommodate the long rake and steering dampening of the trike.
