Additionally, Harley-Davidson will celebrate its 120th birthday this year and as part of the celebration, the manufacturer will introduce a slew of special editions across its Softail and Touring model lineups. As per leaked documents, these models will feature special colour schemes and cosmetic touches, but will be mechanically identical to the standard models.

Harley-Davidson Nightster S: details
The Nightster S isn’t a part of the 120th Anniversary edition models, and it is akin to what the Low Rider S is to the standard Low Rider. The Nightster S features all-black bodywork with retro Harley-Davidson badges, similar to the Forty Eight Special and are very reminiscent of the AMF-owned era Harley-Davidson bikes of the ‘70s. Additionally, the Nightster S features bronze-coloured cast alloy rims which feature a different design to the standard Nightster. The pillion seat and footpegs seen on the Nightster S are also different to those on the Nightster. This is likely to be a cosmetic job only, with no mechanical changes expected.
