Bucherer and Bünderbike collaborate on the world's most expensive motorbike

Bucherer and Bünderbike, the boutique Swiss Harley-Davidson workshop, have produced the Harley-Davidson Blue Edition. The custom motorcycle is the most expensive in the world at CHF 1.888 million (approx. £1.4m) and the first to be integrated with watch and jewellery features. Loosely based on Harley-Davidson’s signature Softail Slim S, the new model is produced in Switzerland and takes more than 2,500 hours to make.

From the Bucherer Fine Jewellery collection, the Dizzler rotating ring has been adapted, allowing it to be mounted on the hand grips, while a further pair of Dizzler diamond rings is located on the forks and a large version of the ring can be found in the left half of the tank.

A six-prong Heaven solitaire ring with a 5.40-carat diamond sits underneath an armoured glass dome in a retractable safe, alongside a custom-made watch from Carl F. Bucherer, based on the Patravi TravelTec II.

The world’s first motorbike to have an engine that is illuminated from the inside using heat-resistant LED lights, the iridescent blue of the Harley-Davidson Blue Edition is produced after a silver-plating is applied to six coatings of special paint.
