Harley-Davidson has revealed a number of special edition models to commemorate its 120th anniversary. All models in the brand's anniversary line will be limited to a certain number of units. Here is the complete list of the 120th-anniversary range: the Ultra Limited (1300 units), Tri Glide Ultra (1100 units), Street Glide Special (1600 units), Road Glide Special (1600 units), Fat Boy 114 (3000 units), and Heritage Classic 114 (1700 units). The aforementioned models will be available at dealerships this year, but only a few of them will make it to the Indian market. The bikes have a base layer of Heirloom Red, followed by red pinstripes, which offer good contrast with the black and gold finishes. All bikes have special black and red seats, as well as a laser-etched serial number. Mechanically, however, they are identical to their standard versions.

After a three-year-long break, Harley-Davidson has brought the Breakout model back, which now comes with the 117ci (1,923cc) V-Twin engine from the CVO line-up. Harley-Davidson has given the Breakout a larger front-facing air filter and an 18.9-litre fuel tank to improve airflow to the engine (the bike earlier came with a 13.25-litre unit). For this year, the Breakout also gets optional traction control and cruise control. In fact, this year's all Softail models have cruise control as a standard feature.

The American motorcycle manufacturer has introduced the CVO Road Glide Limited Anniversary edition, which features a heritage paint scheme and is limited to 1500 units. Cruise control and non-lean-sensitive traction control will be added to the Softail line, which includes the Fat Boy, Fat Bob, Breakout, and Low Rider S.

The Harley-Davidson Nightster Special has also been finally unveiled, and it includes several design changes in comparison to the standard Nightster, such as silver cast alloy rims, bar-end mirrors, a pillion seat as standard, and a Harley-Davidson logo in the style of the 70s. The Harley-Davidson Nightster loses its front bikini fairing (which is now only available on the Nightster Special) and gains a new Redline Red colour option for 2023. Both bikes are mechanically identical, with the same 975cc V-Twin engine producing 89bhp of maximum power and 95Nm of peak torque.
