Harley-Davidson has always been a company that values tradition and a rich history. One of the most iconic traditions of the Harley-Davidson Motor Company is the story of Ray Weishaar and his piglet Johnnie, who would accompany him on his motorcycle after winning a race. Today, the Fast Johnnie mascot still remains one of the most popular and recognized symbols of Harley-Davidson.
New Fast Johnnie Enthusiast Collection
In honor of this tradition, Harley-Davidson has launched a new line that pays homage to the street performance and trick paint jobs of classic muscle car culture. This new Enthusiast Collection, the Harley-Davidson Fast Johnnie, features Fast Johnnie riding right on the gas tank. This new limited edition collection is available on the Road Glide St, the Street Glide ST, and the Low Rider ST models, all of which feature the Milwaukee-Eight 117 V-Twin engine and model-specific suspension settings.
Harley-Davidson's design team drew inspiration from muscle car forms and used Celestial Blue as the base color to create a nod to pure Americana. The white racing stripes on the sides and top of the motorcycles are executed in a classic thin-wide-thin pattern, which is a powerful signal to the generation that came of age during this era and still resonates today.
To distinguish the Fast Johnnie bikes from others rolling out of Milwaukee, Harley-Davidson has added some unique touches. The Enthusiast Collection logo is located on the rear fender, the Bar and Shield badge is on the right side of the tank, and the Fast Johnnie character is on the left side. These special touches make the Fast Johnnie bikes unique and highly sought after. Harley-Davidson Genuine Motor Parts & Accessories will also have color-matching accessories like tour-packs, luggage carriers, and saddlebag speaker lids available.
Due to their exclusivity, Harley-Davidson will restrict the production of each Fast Johnnie model to 2,000 units globally. These limited-production motorcycles are sure to become collector's items for enthusiasts of the Harley-Davidson brand.
Harley-Davidson's Fast Johnnie tradition has been celebrated for over a century, and this new lineup is a testament to the company's commitment to its heritage. These exclusive motorcycles offer not only a nod to the past but also a powerful statement to the future of the Harley-Davidson Motor Company.
