The Bucherer is one of the world’s major leading retailers of luxury watch brands since the year 1888. The company having their own watch brand Carl F. Bucherer, they are also representing many other prestigious brands.
The Harley Davidson Blue Edition is the latest addition to the Bucherer family. This is a beautiful custom made motorcycle which was made in the Harley Davidson’s workshop situated in Bunderbike which is located in the Swiss Alps.
The bike can produce 100 BHP and has a value of around $1.8 million which makes it the most expensive bike in the world. The answer to the question of how can a bike be worth this much is answered by the sheer amount of hours it took to be completed.
This bike took a team of 8 people with more than 2500 hours for designing and producing this beauty. The Harley Davidson Blue Edition was a Softail Slim S once upon a time, however, there is nothing left of the old-fashioned styling and the old-fashioned bike. As a matter of fact, each and every metal on this bike has been welded, beaten, ground polished and manufactured by hand.
This amazing piece of art features custom rims, a seamlessly welded frame, a rotating camshaft, heat resistant LED lights, gold plated valve and throttle valves, and this bike has one more accolade, being the only bike to have motor illuminated from the inside.
The custom seat is completely hand-made from the best of the best cowhide leather but the real thing of genius comes in the color of the bike. Before they could paint six layers of paint on it, they painted the entire vehicle in the silver paint in a process that has not been revealed and has been kept as a secret.
This bike is also the world’s first bike to have an actual watch and real jewels integrated into it. The best part about the bike is located underneath the armored glass dome in the gas tank. It is a six prong heaven solitaire ring with a 5.40-carat diamond. This amazing gemstone sits alongside a custom-made watch. The dial of this watch is adorned with the elements of a motorcycle engine.
In order to keep the watch safe from engine vibrations, it is located in a cage made of silicone rings. Here Harley Davidson has made history by having the world’s most expensive bike and having embellished with the manufacturer’s jewels and watch and being the first motorcycle to have an engine illuminated from the inside.
