• The Special Edition Harley-Davidson Pan America 1250 & Tri Glide Will Evoke The Patriot In You

The special edition models mark the onset of Harley’s new Enthusiast Collection

Harley-Davidson is one of the most popular bike makers in the world, which means it has a wide and diverse audience riding its bikes. Celebrating this diversity, the company has announced a new initiative called Enthusiast Collection which will birth special edition models based on existing Harley bikes annually. With this, Harley-Davidson also took the stage to announce this year’s limited edition models - the Pan America 1250 Special G.I. and Tri Glide Ultra G.I. - both celebrating the US Army and the iconic Harley bikes used in WWII.

The most notable aspect of the special edition Harleys is the standout livery. Dubbed Mineral Green Denim Deluxe, this color wraps both bikes in a deep green shade, taking inspiration from the Olive color used on the iconic Harley-Davidson WLA.

Completing the livery is a stenciled H-D logo on the fuel tank accompanied by a white star (similar to what Harley used on its WWII bikes), and a subtle Enthusiast logo upfront. Besides all this, the Tri Glide gets a few extra graphics on its rear luggage carriers.

Except for the aesthetics, everything else remains as it is on both bikes. Based on the Pan America Special, the Pan America G.I. employs a 1250cc, twin-cylinder engine pumping out 150 horsepower.

Meanwhile, the Tri Glide G.I. is the same as the Tri Glide Ultra and gets the 98 horsepower-making Milwaukee-Eight 114 engine. Similarly, the features and underpinnings are the same as the non-special edition models too.

Harley-Davidson has priced the Pan America Special G.I. and Tri Glide Ultra G.I. at $20,799 and $38,099, respectively. This makes the former $800 and the latter $2,400 more expensive than the Pan America Special and the Tri Glide Ultra.

Sure, the price bump is a bit steep for what’s basically a paint job, but if you’re a true Harley Enthusiast looking for a limited edition model, we’d say these are worth it.
