Harley-Davidson announced the arrival of the new Apex factory custom paint option for selected Harley-Davidson® Grand American Touring models in the Philippines at its Open House on October 22. The Apex custom paint is inspired by Harley-Davidson’s long and successful competition history of racing, which dates back more than a century ago. Harley-Davidson has actively participated in hill climbs, enduros and fairground flat tracks till today, where the Harley-Davidson® Screamin’ Eagle® factory team recently defended its 2021 MotoAmerica King of the Baggers championship.
Harley-Davidson authorized dealerships across the Philippines will be hosting an Open House exclusively for the Apex custom paint scheme on October 22, 2022, so customers can view and experience the legendary racing aesthetic. The Apex custom paint will be offered globally for the remainder of the 2022 model ordering period as a factory-installed option for nine Harley-Davidson® Grand American Touring models, with prices starting from ₱ 1,840,000:
- Road King® Special model priced at ₱ 1,840,000
- Street Glide® Special model (Chrome and Black trim versions) priced at ₱ 1,940,000

“The Apex paint scheme encompasses a long history of triumphs in racing for Harley-Davidson. We are beyond excited to offer this strikingly unique look on our Grand American Touring models that will surely be attention-grabbing on the road. Riders can embark on new adventures in the Philippines with confidence by expressing themselves and the thrill of the ride, with unmistakable colours from past Harley-Davidson competition motorcycles,” said Sajeev Rajasekharan, Managing Director, Asia Emerging Markets & India at Harley-Davidson.
A Racing Legacy, Emblazoned on Grand American Touring Models
The Apex paint scheme features a graphic outline on the fuel tank which mimics the shape of the tank on the legendary Harley-Davidson® XR750 flat track racing motorcycle. The lines on the front fender connect visually to those on the side covers and saddlebags, creating a flowing effect. When viewed in profile, the motorcycle appears to be in motion.
The color scheme starts with a base of Vivid Black paint. A graphic element adds Gauntlet Gray panels surrounded by an accent stripe of Jet Fire Orange – the original color applied to the XR750 competition models. This fade effect was inspired by the checkered fade seen on Harley-Davidson®Factory Team race bikes. Clear coat paint is applied as a final layer. The Apex custom paint is applied in-house at Harley-Davidson® York Vehicle Assembly and Harley-Davidson® Tomahawk Operations.
Harley-Davidson® Genuine Motor Parts & Accessories will offer Tour-Pak® luggage carriers and custom front fenders painted to match the Apex paint scheme. This will allow riders to further customize a motorcycle ordered with Apex factory custom paint.
See a local authorized Harley-Davidson® dealer for details on ordering a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle and accessories with Apex factory custom paint. For local availability of the models, please check with your nearest H-D dealer.
