Harley-Davidson Pays Homage to Its WW2 Military Motos with 2 Limited-Edition Bikes

In an effort to honor the unique backgrounds and special interests of those that ride its bikes, the Harley-Davidson Motor Company has announced the debut of its all-new Enthusiast Collection — an annual limited-edition series of motorcycles based on numerous existing models. To kick off this new range, the MoCo has unveiled what it’s christened the G.I. Enthusiast Collection.

Consisting of special-edition versions of the Milwaukee marque’s Pan America ADV bike and Tri Glide Ultra touring trike, Harley-Davidson’s G.I. Enthusiast Collection pays homage to the company’s WW2-era military motorcycles. This includes an all-new Mineral Green Denim Deluxe paint color that draws inspiration from the olive drab scheme used on mil-spec motos like Harley’s WLA, as well as a five-point star tank graphic that’s also borrowed from the WLA. There’s also a stenciled ‘H-D’ and text abbreviating Harley’s hometown of Milwaukee, Wisconsin — a nod to the spec tags found on government-issued military equipment.

Mechanically, both the Pan America and Tri Glide Ultra are identical to the regular base models, with the adventure bike packing its regular liquid-cooled V-Twin Revolution Max 1250 V-Twin and the latter being kicked along by the Black and Orange’s Twin-Cooled Milwaukee-Eight 114 engine. The trike also comes standard with custom Tomahawk wheels, a premium Boom! Box GTS infotainment system, a white star-decorated trunk and King Tour-Pak luggage carrier, a Daymaker LED headlamp, and H-D’s standard Cornering Rider Safety Enhancements. Both bikes also sport Enthusiast Collection logos on their bodywork — a feature that will presumably be on all future Enthusiast Collection models.

Produced in limited numbers, the 2023 Harley-Davidson G.I. Enthusiast Collection is available now, with pricing set at $20,799 for the Pan America 1250 Special G.I. adventure bike and $38,099 for the Tri Glide Ultra G.I. trike.

Purchase: $20,799+
