Harley Offers New Core Series Paint Program

Tuesday, January 4, 2011
H-Ds new Core Series Paint
Core Series Paint - Grind with Red Gloss
Core Series Two-Tone Pink and Denim.
Harley-Davidson is giving owners a chance to have more of a say in the paint and design of their motorcycles beyond the base factory options in its Core Series Paint Program.
The new Core Series paint program from Harley-Davidson Genuine Motor Accessories offers Harley owners the opportunity to create their own paint using select designs, colors, and finishes. Painted by professional artists and pinstripers to strict original-equipment standards, the Core Series offers 58 possible combinations utilizing five designs, six custom colors and the choice of gloss or denim finish.

A customer begins the Core Series process by selecting one of five designs: Two-Tone, Grind, Flames, Graphics or Touring Flames. All designs start with a black base, and are detailed with Vivid Black, Shiny Side Up Silver, Real Fine Red, Push the Boundaries Pink, Agave Blue or Iconic Orange accents. Each design is available in Denim or Gloss finish.

The Core Series is available as a complete set, including factory-fresh sheet metal, for many 2010 and 2011 Harley-Davidson Touring, Sportster, Dyna and Softail models, priced from $1999.95 to $5299.95. Core Series color sets are covered by a two-year factory warranty when installed within 60 days of purchase of a new Harley-Davidson motorcycle. Core Series designs may also be applied to the customer’s undamaged sheet metal through the Sheet Metal Exchange Program, available for many models up to 10 years old, with no additional strip or prime charges. Core Series paint is available year-round and in unlimited quantities. Standard lead time is 45 days. See an authorized Harley-Davidson dealer for details.

Harley-Davidson Motor Company produces heavyweight custom, cruiser and touring motorcycles and offers a complete line of Harley-Davidson motorcycle parts, accessories, riding gear and apparel, and general merchandise.

What new technology do you want? ABS they have it, FI they have it, fly by wire throttle, yep got that too. Oh the air cooled V Twin? Ok so tell Yamaha, Victory, Indian, BMW and Ducati that they have no technology as well. I may not be a HD fan with all the marketing and extra stuff but stop with the kool aid drinking from the haters side.

Marketing types sometimes get a little flowery in their use of English, so let me offer a translation: "HD now officially put lipstick on the hog (pig)", or as the Aussies say, so much more eloquently, "2 years warranty on the factory polished the turd".

It's an interesting idea although I don't really see how it's much more cost effective or convenient then getting a true custom paint job done yourself. I suppose if you don't have a paint shop close enough and don't feel comfortable shipping your tank to one it could be an option.
