For their 130th anniversary, Swiss Jeweler Carl Bucherer rebuilt our Softail Slim® model into a diamond-studded masterpiece worth 1,888 million Swiss Francs.
No other motorbike brand represents freedom and individual customization of bikes more symbolically than Harley-Davidson. During its long corporate history, the Milwaukee company has already marvelled at many creative ideas, and another milestone now follows. In the freedom forge of the customising experts Bündnerbike, amid the Maienfeld vineyards, the most expensive motorbike in the world has just been completed. The customer for this masterpiece is the Swiss watch brand Carl F. Bucherer, which is celebrating its 130th anniversary this year.
The basis for this bike is the Harley-Davidson Softail Slim from 2017, which was rebuilt in detail. Even the smallest parts, including bolts, were made by hand and given a high-quality finish. The wheels were specially designed for the Blue Bike, and the saddle is also hand-stitched - made in Switzerland. The motor block is illuminated from the inside and makes various gold-plated parts shine, and diamonds and precious rings have been meticulously incorporated into the handlebar grips. The highlight of the Blue Bike is located on the tank: While the left-hand side is decorated with a six-prong solitaire ring with a 5.4 carat diamond, a special version of the Bucherer Patravi TravelTec II model has been built into the right-hand side.
The team of eight, comprising watchmakers and jewellers from Carl F. Bucherer, together with specialists from Bündnerbike, took a year to design and manufacture the Harley Davidson Blue Edition. Over 2,500 working hours were invested in this project, which combines two things in particular: Unique Swiss craftsmanship and the passion for exclusive, customised and very cool products.
