Harley-Davidson Street Glide bikes get hand-painted Arctic Blast colors

Harley-Davidson Street Glide Arctic Blast

Harley-Davidson introduced a limited run of its Street Glide Special motorcycles in the US, featuring the handcrafted Arctic Blast Limited Edition paint set.

The motorcycle was revealed at the 81st Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, and  availability will be limited to 500 examples worldwide, each serialized on the fuel tank. Metallic deep blue, with bright blue strokes over a pearlescent white base, are the ingredients of the Arctic Blast Limited Edition paint. 

The blue and white color combo was hand-applied by Gunslinger Custom Paint in Golden, Colorado. The Gunslinger is composed of painters, designers, artists, and manufacturing teams. Decades of experience as a supplier of custom-painted components for Harley-Davidson Custom Vehicle Operations, motorcycles, and limited edition paint sets are part of that team's CV.

Described the American motorcycle maker as a "hot-rod," the Street Glide Special model promises to combine long-haul touring comfort and custom style.

The Street Glide is powered by a Milwaukee-Eight 114 V-Twin engine. Key features include the iconic Harley-Davidson batwing fairing with split stream vent to reduce head buffeting, stretched locking saddle bags, a Daymaker LED headlamp, low-profile engine guard, and Prodigy custom wheels.

The Boom! Box GTS infotainment system features a color touch screen, advanced navigation plus compatibility with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, hand and voice commands, when paired with compatible headset, and two-speaker audio is standard equipment.

“With the Arctic Blast Limited Edition paint offering for the Street Glide Special, at Harley-Davidson we continue to build on our reputation and lead by example, as the best in exclusive custom motorcycles and design,” Harley-Davidson CEO Jochen Zeitz said.

“The Arctic Blast paint is executed in strokes of high-contrast color intended to communicate the appearance of motion,” VP for Styling and Design Brad Richards explained. 

“The design looks bold from a distance but offers interesting details that can only be seen up close, including a blue pearl effect over the white base, and a ghosted hexagon pattern on the fairing,” he described.
