ESSENCE OF HARLEY: The Harley-Davidson Street Bob Special Edition is a custom model that keeps the stripped-down and undistilled essence of a big-twin H-D. Image: SUPPLIED

Just launched in SA - the Harley-Davidson Street Bob Special Edition is a custom model that keeps the stripped-down and undistilled essence of a big-twin H-D.

The Street Bob has a raft of new eye-catching features and packs more power and style for Harley-Davidson riders.

Inspired by Harley-Davidson’s factory customisation programme, this new motorcycle is only available in select markets, including those in Europe, the Middle East and African.

REBELLIOUS CUSTOMISATION

The Street Bob Special Edition takes rebellious Harley-Davidson customisation to the max and gets special treatment with a powerful 1690cc engine, five-spoked cast wheels and a unique two-tone paint job with graphics.

The popular and stylish badlander two-up saddle, forward controls and drag handlebars give this rowdy bobber a meaner and leaner attitude for riders who appreciate the pure essence of motorcycling.

The bike also retains all the key styling features of the stripped-back big twin, which include the chopped rear fender, Fat Bob fuel tank, and blacked-out engine.

The cast aluminium wheels are finished in black. The flat drag-style handlebar replaces the stock mini-ape bar and lowers the bike’s profile while the two-up badlander seat replaces the stock solo seat and offers a smooth, clean line from the fuel tank all the way to the rear fender.

Price: From R162 995
