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 Street Bob is a stripped-down and rowdy bobber based on the 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.
