Earlier this week, we uncovered Australian certification paperwork revealing a brand new Nightster S mannequin and Harley-Davidson‘s 2023 Softail lineup together with a hundred and twentieth anniversary Fats Boy 114 and Heritage Traditional 114 fashions. As we predicted, an analogous doc certifying Harley-Davidson’s 2023 touring fashions has now been launched in Australia, confirming the fashions returning, in addition to the Anniversary Version Touring fashions, plus one attainable addition to Harley’s Icon assortment.
a hundred and twentieth Anniversary Harley-Davidson Softail Fashions Leaked
Returning for 2023, no less than for the Australian market, are the Street Glide Particular, Street Glide ST, Road Glide Particular, Road Glide ST, Street King Particular, and Extremely Restricted. In keeping with the certification doc, Harley-Davidson will introduce Anniversary Editions for the CVO Street Glide Restricted (FLTRKSEANV), Street Glide Particular (mannequin code FLTRXSANV), Road Glide Particular (FLHXSANV), and Extremely Restricted (FLHTKANV). Most of those anniversary fashions additionally acquired a hundred and fifteenth Anniversary Editions in 2018, together with the Extremely Restricted pictured above.
New for 2023 is a mannequin designated because the “FLHFB”. The mannequin code was beforehand used within the ’60s for the FLHFB Electra Glide, which makes us suspect that it will likely be 2023’s addition to Harley-Davidson’s Icon lineup. The 1965 Electra Glide was one of many final Harley-Davidson fashions to make use of the Panhead engine, however the first with electrical begin.
The non-Particular Street King, Street Glide and Road Glide, plus the Electra Glide Customary are usually not listed, which isn’t any shock as they weren’t supplied in Australia for 2022; it stays to be seen whether or not these fashions, all powered by the 107ci Milwaukee-Eight engine, will likely be out there in different markets together with the U.S.
The Trike lineup can also be not included, as they’d be a part of a special certification file, so we’ll wait to see if the Freewheeler, Tri Glide Extremely or CVO Tri Glide will return for 2023.
The brand new certification doc doesn’t present any modifications to the engines, so count on the CVO and ST fashions to come back with the 117ci Milwaukee-Eight whereas the remainder of the touring lineup stays with the 114ci engine. There are additionally no modifications indicated to licensed tare weights, dimensions or wheel sizes in comparison with 2022.
We count on the returning fashions and the a hundred and twentieth Anniversary Editions will likely be a part of Harley-Davidson’s announcement on Jan. 18. The occasion is likely to be a superb time to disclose the FLHFB, although it wouldn’t be a shock if Harley-Davidson saves it for a separate launch occasion.
