Harley-Davidson has introduced the Fast Johnnie models from the limited edition Enthusiast Motorcycle Collection. The Fast Johnnie color scheme will be equipped on the Low Rider ST, Street Glide ST, and Road Glide ST models with a limited quantity of only 2,000 units worldwide for each version.
In 2022, the Enthusiast Motorcycle Collection took on the G.I. theme, honoring military style. This year, in conjunction with the brand’s 120th anniversary celebration campaign, this collection will focus on a highly famous icon in Harley-Davidson history, the Fast Johnnie mascot.
The Johnnie pig mascot became famous since the 1920s, being the beloved pet of Ray Weishaar, a member of the legendary Wrecking Crew racing team. Johnnie the pig used to sit on the gas tank and go around the track to celebrate the team’s success.
This image attracted the attention of the audience as well as the press, and from there, the press started calling Harley-Davidson racers “Harley Hogs”. The nickname Hog later became a familiar term associated with the Harley-Davidson brand, still used today.
The Fast Johnnie color scheme is a combination of a Celestial Blue paint layer with white stripe patterns inspired by popular high-performance muscle car models in the 1960s – 70s.
On the right side of the gas tank is the Bar & Shield logo, while on the left side is the prominently designed Johnnie pig icon. This icon has appeared on Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle race team bikes in the MotoAmerica King of the Baggers competition.
Depending on each model, the white stripe pattern will appear on the front fender, rear fender, gas tank, front fairing, sides of the bike, and saddlebags. On the top of the gas tank and front fender, the words “Harley-Davidson” are ingeniously incorporated into the white stripe pattern. The special feature of this model is also shown in the Enthusiast Motorcycle Collection logo placed on the rear fender of the bike.
The Fast Johnnie color scheme will only be produced in a limited quantity of 2,000 units for each version, and will be available in Vietnam for all 3 versions: Low Rider ST, Street Glide ST, and Road Glide ST. These are 3 models designed in a high-performance bagger style, using the powerful Milwaukee-Eight 117 engine.
