Well, now it exists. A bright blue Harley-Davidson motorcycle covered in diamonds.
The one-off Harley-Davidson Blue Edition motorcycle is the brainchild of Swiss jeweler Bucherer. The cerulean cycle—a Harley-Davidson Softail Slim S with a V-twin engine—was conceptualized as a rolling fusion of impeccable jewelry and motorcycle craftsmanship.
The bike features 360 diamonds, including a 5.4 ct. diamond tucked inside an armored glass dome and a Bucherer watch encased under glass. Valued at roughly $1.8 million, it’s being billed as the most expensive motorcycle in the world. And Bucherer is marketing the motorcycle as part of its Blue Edition watch series.
The Blue Edition was hand-built by boutique Harley-Davidson workshop Bündnerbike and took eight people around 2,500 hours to put together.
In addition to its diamonds, the Blue Edition features six layers of iridescent blue paint, real gold-plated screws, hand grips that incorporate Bucherer jewelry, and a retractable safe—should you need to safely stash additional diamonds, emeralds, pearls, and whatnot on your Sunday drive.
Here’s a quick-and-raucous video showcasing the bike’s many extravagant features:

“We are pleased to be able to contribute our long-standing experience and close relationship with our partners in order to create exclusive and unique watches and products as part of the Bucherer Blue Editions, which are exclusively available at Bucherer,” said Patrick Graf, chief commercial officer at Bucherer, in a company statement. “This allows us to appeal to customers around the world who want to stand out from the crowd and live the Blue Editions lifestyle.”
Brits curious about the “Blue Editions lifestyle” can currently visit the Blue Edition bike—it’s parked inside the window of Bucherer’s shop-in-shop inside Selfridges in London for the next few weeks. After its tenure there, the blingy moto will tour Bucherer’s other European shops.
