Australia and New Zealand have been allocated eight of the 500 limited-edition Harley-Davidson Street Glide Specials hand painted in Arctic Blast to give the impression of motion.

The bike, which revealed at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally this week will cost $A47,245 ride away ($NZ51,440) which a fair premium over the standard at under $40,00.

However, Harley boss says Jochen Zeitz says the metallic deep blue with bright blue strokes over a pearlescent white base is pretty special and will “continue to build on our reputation and lead by example, as the best in exclusive custom motorcycles and design”.Harley-Davidson Street Glide Special

Harley Styling and Design VP Brad Richards says the paintwork is “executed in strokes of high-contrast colour intended to communicate the appearance of motion”.

“The design looks bold from a distance but offers interesting details that can only be seen up close, including a blue pearl effect over the white base, and a ghosted hexagon pattern on the fairing,” he says.Harley-Davidson Street Glide Special

The Arctic Blast Limited Edition paint is hand-applied by Gunslinger Custom Paint in Golden, Colorado, who have been supplying custom-painted components for Harley’s Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) motorcycles for years.

The bagger model is powered by the Milwaukee-Eight 114 V-Twin and features stretched locking saddle bags, Daymaker LED headlight, low-profile engine guard, and Prodigy custom wheels.

The Boom! Box GTS infotainment system with colour touch screen includes GPS and is compatible with Android AutoTM and Apple CarPlay.
