Harley-Davidson Blue Edition has officially become the world’s most exclusive and expensive bike. It was made by Bucherer, the Swiss watchmaker, and Bundnerbike. The starting price of this beauty is 1.79 million US dollars. This one-of-a-kind Harley Davidson took 2500 hours to finish, and we can now enjoy in its beauty.
The bike Blue Edition is based on the Harley-Davidson Softail Slim S. However, after the work by the two companies, the final product doesn’t even remotely resemble the starting bike. The frame and the rims had to be made from scratch whereas some parts are gold-plated.
The entire setup uses the heat-resistant LEDs. This Blue Edition is the only motorcycle in the world which has an engine illuminated from inside. The seat has been specially hand-made in Switzerland whereas the blue paint has got a six-layer coating. The companies that worked on this piece of art don’t want to reveal the coating techniques they used.
Meanwhile, a watch is located on the right side of the fuel tank, making this bike the pioneer in this segment as well. Never before has the watch been integrated into a motorcycle. Other than that, jewels can be found all over the two-wheeler, replacing rubber bushes or washers. A 5.40-carat Dizzler ring is placed in the left half of the fuel tank.
The watch is enclosed in a cage so that it is protected at all times. The holder is a watch winder at the same time, to make sure that it always shows the right time. When it comes to the engine, the Harley-Davidson Blue Edition is powered by a 1.8-liter V-Twin good for 148Nm of torque. This unit is paired with a 6-speed transmission.
There is no doubt that this Harley-Davidson is made with a lot of sophistication and the great attention to details. Until the better motorcycle comes, the Blue Edition will hold the title of the most expensive bike on the planet. And it is meant to be ridden.
