In the Sport category, the Sportster™ S returns for its third year of production. Its Vivid Black and White Sand Pearl colours remain, but we say goodbye to Mineral Green Metallic. Instead, the 2023 model year comes in Gray Haze – a delicious gunmetal grey colour – and Bright Billiard Blue – a deep, muted blue that offers the perfect splash of colour for those who may fear being too flashy.
The MSRP for the 2023 Sportster™ S starts at $19,499.
The perfect blank canvas returns with very little changes (because it doesn’t need any!). The 2023 Harley-Davidson® Softail™ Standard maintains the 107 engine, mid-mount foot controls, and upright riding position. The only notable difference from the 2022 year is the logo on the gas tank. The small grey logo from the 2022 year is replaced with electric red text reminiscent of the ’80s.
The MSRP for the Softail™ Standard starts at $17,599.
Street Bob™ 114
The gritty, stripped-down Street Bob™ 114 is back for 2023 with new colours and a new wheel option! The Vivid Black and Redline Red colours are sticking around, while Gauntlet Grey Metallic and Fastback Blue are kicking the bucket. Industrial Yellow, a brand new colour for Harley-Davidson®, is your new 2023 Street Bob™ 114 colour option. It’s a striking banana-yellow that somehow isn’t offensive to the eyes. If Bumblebee became a motorcycle, this would be it.
The MSRP for the 2023 Street Bob™ 114 starts at $19,999.
Fat Bob™ 114
Coming back with new colours is the muscular 2023 Harley-Davidson® Fat Bob™ 114. Vivid Black is here to stay, of course, but say adiós to White Sand Pearl. Redline Red, a stunning hard candy red, and Gray Haze, Harley’s new gorgeous gunmetal grey, are the two new colour options for 2023.
The MSRP for the 2023 Fat Bob™ 114 starts at $23,999.
Low Rider™ S
The 117 V-Twin engine is the largest engine Harley-Davidson® offers from the factory, and continues to come standard on the 2023 Low Rider™ S. New to the 2023 Low Rider™ S this year is, again, colour. Gunship Grey is replaced by White Sand Pearl for a beautiful look reminiscent of Caribbean beaches.
The MSRP for the 2023 Low Rider™ S starts at $23,999.
Low Rider™ ST
Returning for its second year is the game-changing Low Rider™ ST, the V-Twin sport-touring bike with outrageous performance that debuted in 2022. It sticks side by side with its sibling, the Low Rider™ S, when it comes to changes for 2023. The colours are Vivid Black and White Sand Pearl taking the place of the 2022 Gunship Grey colour.
The MSRP for the 2023 Low Rider™ ST starts at $27,399.
Fat Boy™ 114
Everyone’s favourite cruiser isn’t going anywhere. The original fat custom icon with bright chrome finishes and solid-disc wheels conquers 2023 with new colours. Vivid Black remains, but the bright Reef Blue of 2022 is replaced by a more muted Bright Billiard Blue, and Midnight Crimson/Vivid Black is replaced with Gray Haze/Silver Fortune, which brings a satisfying monochromatic 2-tone colour option to the Fat Boy™.
The MSRP for the 2023 Fat Boy™ 114 starts at $25,499.
The vintage Heritage Classic rolls into 2023 and drops the 114 from its name, despite continuing to come with the Milwaukee-Eight™ 114 V-Twin engine. The Heritage now comes standard with the popular steel laced wheels, discontinuing the cast wheel option. But you can still choose between a chrome trim finish and a black trim finish to make your Heritage Classic unique to you.
With 2023 comes new colours. Vivid Black returns with both chrome trim and black trim options, and the new Atlas Silver Metallic – replacing Midnight Crimson – comes with a chrome finish. Prospect Gold, a new colour for Harley in 2023, comes with a black finish, replacing last year’s White Sand Pearl option. The new 2-tone colour for 2023 – taking the place of Redline Red/Vivid Black and Reef Blue/Vivid Black – is Bright Billiard Blue/Billiard Gray, available with either chrome trim or black trim.
The MSRP for the 2023 Heritage Classic starts at $26,499.
Pan America™ 1250
The Pan America™ 1250 makes its comeback in 2023 with no significant changes. This is an adventure touring bike designed to explore with power, tech, and capability in a design package that is uniquely Harley-Davidson®. If you don’t like being overwhelmed with too many options, the 2023 Pan America™ 1250 comes in black with 5-spoke black cast wheels and a 1250 cc engine. The end.
The MSRP for the 2023 Pan America™ 1250 starts at $21,999.
Pan America™ 1250 Special
Now this one is for those of you who are obsessed with options. Like with the 2022 model year, the 2023 Pan America™ 1250 Special comes with optional suspension with Adaptive Ride Height, and the choice between laced wheels or cast wheels.
As for colours, Gauntlet Grey Metallic and Fastback Blue/White Sand were left behind in 2022. The 2023 Pan America™ 1250 Special comes instead in Gray Haze or Industrial Yellow/White Sand, which brings a fun pop of colour to your offroad adventures.
The MSRP for the 2023 Pan America™ 1250 Special starts at $25,499.
Road King™ Special
It looks like the Road King™ may not be returning, but we still have the Road King™ Special, the more powerful of the two. New colours for 2023 include Bright Billiard Blue and Industrial Yellow, replacing 2022’s Midnight Crimson and Mineral Green Denim. But will we be seeing a new special edition colour for the Road King™ Special this year, like the Apex Black in 2022? We’ll have to wait and see.
The MSRP for the 2023 Road King™ Special starts at $28,599.
The original stripped-down hot-rod bagger greets 2023 with new colours, a new factory option, and a new standard feature.
RDRS, the Reflex™ Defensive Rider Systems, now comes standard on 2023 Street Glide™, so that you don’t have to choose between safety and your bank account. The new optional add-on for 2023 is RSE, Harley’s performance audio system that comes with Bluetooth capability and high-quality speakers.
Vivid Black remains as a standard colour for 2023, but Midnight Crimson and White Sand Pearl are replaced with Redline Red and Atlas Silver Metallic. Now there’s a colour option for every type of bagger-rider.
And, as always, we here at Barnes add on docking hardware so that you can throw on a touring pack at any time with ease.
The MSRP for the 2023 Street Glide™ starts at $27,499.
Like its sibling, the Street Glide™, the 2023 Road Glide™ maintains the 107 engine from 2022, as well as hard saddlebags, a premium infotainment system, and chrome trim. The 2023 Road Glide™ also comes with the same new colours, Redline Red and Atlas Silver Metallic, replacing White Sand Pearl and Reef Blue.
RDRS comes standard and the RSE audio option is available from the factory on 2023 Road Glide™, and we at Barnes will add on docking hardware so you don’t have to worry about it.

Street Glide™ Special
Highway-shredding power returns in the 2023 Street Glide™ Special, and it arrives with brand new colours for the 2023 model year. Vivid Black is available again in both chrome and black trim, but this year Baja Orange and Gray Haze – both available in a chrome finish – take the place of Black Denim and Gunship Grey. Atlas Silver Metallic and Prospect Gold replace Redline Red and White Sand Pearl, available in a black finish. And replacing Midnight Crimson/Vivid Black is Bright Billiard Blue/Billiard Gray, in either chrome or black finish. We also welcome a brand new 2-tone colour to 2023: Industrial Yellow/Vivid Black with a black trim.
The MSRP for the 2023 Street Glide™ Special starts at $34,299.

The colours we lose this year are Black Denim, Gunship Grey, Redline Red, White Sand Pearl, and Reef Blue/Vivid Black. We also lose the special edition colour, Apex Black. But who knows? Maybe we’ll see another special edition colour later this year.
So which is better, the Street Glide™ Special’s fork-mounted batwing fairing or the Road Glide™ Special’s frame-mounted sharknose fairing? That’s for you to decide.
The MSRP for the 2023 Road Glide™ Special starts at $34,299.
Street Glide™ ST
The top-of-the-line Street Glide™ ST returns for its second year of production in 2023, with the same 117 cubic inches of displacement and high-performance tuning, bronze detailing, and classic batwing fairing. Vivid Black is the staple colour for 2023, as always. We lose Gunship Gray and get White Sand Pearl instead as 2023 Street Glide™ ST second colour option. White Sand Pearl is a warm, stunning off-white that’s sure to stand out from the crowd.
The MSRP for the 2023 Road Glide™ ST starts at $37,799.
Road Glide™ ST
Back and as badass as last year, the 2023 Road Glide™ ST and its 117 engine, sharknose fairing, and bronze detailing seems like it’s here to stay for good. And we aren’t complaining! This gorgeous machine comes in Vivid Black again with a black finish, which highlights the bronze details in the wheels and engine. Its new colour for 2023 is White Sand Pearl, replacing Gunship Gray.

Road Glide™ Limited
The Road Glide™ Limited is back in 2023 with new colours and a different Harley-Davidson® logo.
Vivid Black in either chrome or black trim is here to stay but we lose Gunship Gray, Mineral Green Metallic, Gauntlet Gray Metallic/Vivid Black, and Reef Blue/Vivid Black. Replacing them are Gray Haze/Silver Fortune with a chrome finish – a new monochromatic 2-tone paint job that’s sure to be popular – and Atlas Silver Metallic with a black finish, as well as Bright Billiard Blue/Billiard Gray in either chrome or black trim, and Prospect Gold/Vivid Black with a black finish – a jaw-dropping jewel-like tone that’s aptly named.
The Harley logo of 2022, a simple textured text stretching across the majority of the tank’s length, has been put to rest. With 2023 comes a new Harley logo for the Road Glide™ Limited, one that is more chrome, round, and condensed but no less interesting. It appears to fly across the tank, leaving a streak of action lines behind it.
The MSRP for the 2023 Road Glide™ Limited starts at $35,699.
The Ultra Limited hits 2023 with the same logo as the Road Glide™ Limited, a circular badge that shoots across the gas tank, and leaves behind most of its 2022 colours: Gauntlet Grey Metallic, Gunship Gray, Reef Blue/Vivid Black, and Midnight Crimson/Vivid Black. New in 2023 are the bright and yummy Redline Red with chrome finish, the refreshing Gray Haze/Silver Fortune 2-tone with chrome finish, the tough Gray Haze with black finish, the classic Bright Billiard Blue/Billiard Gray in either chrome or black finish, and the royal Prospect Gold/Vivid Black with black finish.
