You Have To See This Insane $1.79 Million Harley-Davidson, The World’s Most Expensive Motorcycle
Since we’ve already covered the most expensive bottle of whiskey ever (just sold for $1 million) and a car you can lease for $25,000 a month (a Pagani Huayra Roadster), I guess today is the perfect day to also talk about the world’s most expensive motorcycle: the $1.79 million Bucherer Harley-Davidson Blue Edition.
How could a motorcycle possibly cost $1.79 million? Well, when you set out to make a motorcycle and you enlist the help of the watchmakers of Carl F. Bucherer, the jewellers of Bucherer Fine Jewellery, and the specialists at Bündnerbike, and let them work for more than 2,500 hours on a one-of-a-kind bike, that’s what happens.
The Blue Edition is based on the Harley-Davidson Softail Slim S, but it has definitely had a few upgrades.
For example, every metal element found on this motorcycle has been produced, welded, beaten, ground and polished by hand. The complete frame of the motorcycle is welded seamlessly, and even the rims are custom-made. The rotating camshaft is visible through a window in the camshaft housing, as are the valve control and the gold-plated throttle valves, making it the world’s first motorcycle to have a motor that is lit up from the inside.
Other various parts of the motorcycle are also gold-plated, the cowhide saddle has been sewn by hand in Switzerland, and the entire motorcycle was silver-plated, before six color coatings were then applied using a secret coating method.
Oh yeah, there is also a watch and jewelry integrated into the motorcycle itself. A rotating ring is mounted on the hand grips, a six-prong Heaven solitaire ring with a 5.40-carat diamond can also be found in a retractable safe (ON THE BIKE), and a special custom-made watch, which is based on the Patravi TravelTec II model, is located in a second safe in the right half of the tank.
All that and more are how you get a motorcycle that costs $1.79 million. Any other questions?
