The 120 Year Anniversary Edition variants are distinguished by black chrome tanks with a die-cast badge and completely blacked out components, with the engine, silencer and other elements in an array of black colour schemes.
The bikes will also come equipped with a range of genuine accessories such as flyscreens, engine guards, heel guards, touring and bar end mirrors amongst others in a black disguise to compliment the overall design.
