NEW HARLEY-DAVIDSON®STREET BOB® SPECIAL EDITION
 
NEW HARLEY-DAVIDSON®STREET BOB® SPECIAL EDITION

Street Bob® - now joined by a Special Edition that packs even more power and style

OXFORD, UK (March 8, 2013) – The new Street Bob® Special Edition is a rare beast: a pure bobber, pushed further.  Inspired by Harley-Davidson's Factory Customization programme, this strictly limited edition motorcycle is only available in select markets, including those in the European, Middle East and African regions.

Restyled for 2013, the Harley-Davidson® Street Bob® is a stripped-down and rowdy bobber based on the Harley-Davidson® Dyna® platform that appeals to riders who appreciate the pure essence of motorcycling; a powerful V-Twin engine at the heart of a bike with simple eye-catching styling that carries only the most essential equipment.

The new Street Bob® Special Edition is upgraded with a 1690cc engine to deliver that unmistakable Harley-Davidson rumble.  We've embellished it with distinctive two-tone scallop paint and steel laced wheels with attention-grabbing red rims to deliver a bike that stands out by its looks just as much as its sound. The Street Bob® Special Edition delivers that high-end bobber look and features straight out of the crate, such as ABS as standard equipment.

“Our focus for the Street Bob® is on street appeal,” said Harley-Davidson® Styling Manager Tony Pink. “This bike is for the owner who would order a muscle car with the biggest engine and no radio. As part of this restyle, we cleaned off the rear fender, ditched the battery box trim, and bolted on a classic oval air cleaner cover. The goal is to create an elemental Big Twin that a customer can define as his own.”

The defining elements of the Street Bob are retained for 2013's Special Edition – a solo seat, chopped rear fender, and mini ape-hanger handlebar give this motorcycle an unmistakable profile. New styling features include a black Twin Cam 103™ powertrain with highlighted details, blacked-out front end, clean rear fender with combination stop/tail/turn lighting.
