Add Some Flair to Your Harley
Harley-Davidson just announced two special custom paint schemes in various colors for 2020. They’re called the Quick Shift and Mayhem Limited Paint Sets. The special paint jobs can be applied to 2018 and later Breakout and Fat Bob or 2017 and later Road King, Street Glide, and Road Glide Harley motorcycles.
Harley says the Mayhem paint set “embodies the feeling of speeding away from the everyday noise.” It’s an inferno red pearl and phantom black paint scheme with ghost white and brushed silver highlights. This paint set is available for the 2017 and later models discussed above. Harley will do only 150 sets worldwide for all of the touring models.
On the other paint set, the Quick Shift, Harley says this set was designed for the “performance junkie.” It features gunmetal metallic and black as the base for the set that are separated by a pewter pinstripe. From there hyper orange, hyper yellow, or hyper green accents are added. These are offered on the 2018 and later models mentioned above. Only 100 sets will be offered worldwide.
While some custom paint jobs are pretty cool, this is the last thing I’d think Harley should be worrying about. However, it makes sense with all of the forward momentum on electric bikes and smaller-displacement machines abroad that the company would offer something special to its base, and I see these paint sets as a way to do that.
