Harley-Davidson Unveils World’s Coolest Bike
Harley-Davidson Unveils World’s Coolest Bike, The Harley-Davidson unveiled its Blue Edition on May 9, 2018, at an event in Zurich, Switzerland. This Blue Edition is the world’s most expensive bike, made by a collaboration of Carl. F Bucherer, a Swiss watch, and jewelry maker and a bike specialist, Bündnerbike.
The most expensive bike Harley-Davidson Blue Edition took project work of 12 months to design and produce. The unique motorcycle creation costs a whooping of Rs. 12 crores as the motorcycle is adorned with diamonds and gold plated bits. The bike took around 2500 hours of labor work to finish. Thanks to the team of eight from both Bucherer and Bundnerbike who made this kind of bike.
The engine of the Harley-Davidson Blue Edition is powered by a 1.8 liter air-cooled V-Twin with 148Nm of torque and is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The Blue Edition is based on a Harley-Davidson Softail Slim S but the result looks nowhere close to the original model. The creator has embellished the motorcycle with plenty of precious materials and stones.
The Harley Davidson Blue Edition has crossed boundaries of exclusivity and is dedicated to the Blue series of watches from Bucherer. This can be shown by a watch fitted on the right side of the fuel tank, enclosed in holder covered with the silicon rings which protect it from the vibrations of the engine. On the other side, there is 5.40-carat Dizzler ring enclosed on the left side of the fuel tank. Also, the motorcycle is seen with 360 diamonds, and parts like the lever, reservoir caps, headlights cover, are gold plated, and the handlebar and fork top had a small Dizzler ring. Blue Edition is the only bike which is fully illuminated by heat-resistant LEDs and engine illuminated from inside. The seat of this motorcycle has been hand stitched in Switzerland.
The paint of the Harley-Davidson Blue Edition has got a six-layer coating and has been painted by unique technique. However, the coating technique is kept as a secret. The rims and frame of this bike have been custom by Bundnerbike. The Harley-Davidson Blue Edition is made close enough to Harley Davidson Softail Slim S.
“Every piece of an element found on this kind of motorcycle has been welded, beaten, polished, and ground by hand,” said Carl. F Bucherer.
