MILWAUKEE - Harley-Davidson rolls into its 110th model year with a lineup that includes 110th Anniversary Editions of select models, a restyled Dyna Street Bob, new CVO models, and a new Hard Candy paint option.

The Street Bob gets a tougher profile for 2013 with new blacked-out triple clamps and a chopped rear fender with side-mount license plate and stop/turn/tail lights. The bobber features a solo seat and mini-ape handlebars mounted on new risers that make it easier to customize the bike. New paint options include the Hard Candy Custom metalflake mentioned below and a scalloped two-tone option.

Ten Harley-Davidson models are offered as a 110th Anniversary Editions, each serialized and featuring exclusive paint and commemorative solid bronze fuel tank badges. Production will vary by model and will be strictly limited to ensure exclusivity. These models come with all available factory-installed options as standard equipment.

Harley-Davidson Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) offers two new limited-production models: the CVO Breakout (shown below), a high-performance Softail model with new finish options, and the CVO Road King, fitted with a vented windshield and high-output audio system.

Also new for 2013, Harley-Davidson launches Hard Candy Custom, which the company describes as “a styling movement rooted in themes first seen in the chopper era of the late 1960s that embraces dazzling metal flake paint, brilliant chrome, and styling details in accessories, gear and apparel.”

Hard Candy Big Red Flake, Hard Candy Lucky Green Flake and Hard Candy Coloma Gold Flake can be ordered as original paint. At least one Hard Candy Custom color will be offered as a solid-color option for these five models: Seventy-Two, Street Bob, Blackline, Softail Deluxe, and Forty-Eight. New and recently introduced Genuine Motor Accessory and MotorClothes items extend the Hard Candy Custom theme.

Finally, H-D1 Factory Customization expands with the Street Bob joining the 1200 Custom as Harley-Davidson models in the Web-based Bike Builder on Harley-Davidson.com that allows customers to select factory-installed options in more than 2,000 combinations, build a bike on the screen, and then order it through an authorized Harley-Davidson dealer.
