HARLEY-DAVIDSON® THROWS A NATIONWIDE OPEN HOUSE EVENT

Street Bob Special Edition

Street Bob Special Edition

Later this month, motorcycle enthusiasts across the UK and Ireland are invited to join the special open weekend celebrations taking place at all authorised Harley-Davidson® dealerships, where the Harley-Davidson® Street Bob® Special Edition will be unveiled. The Street Bob® Special Edition was announced earlier this month, and the dealerships’ Open House events on 23-24 March will be the first time the bike is seen in the flesh.

Based on the successful Street Bob from the Dyna® range of custom cruisers, the Street Bob Special Edition, priced from £11,445 on the road, takes the street appeal of the cut down bobber-look that little bit further.

The Special Edition model retains the Street Bob’s classic single seat, mini ape-hanger bars and minimalist fenders, but, where the standard Street Bob carries a Twin Cam 96™ (1585cc) engine, the Special Edition comes as standard with a rubber-mounted Twin Cam 103™ (1690cc) V-Twin engine that produces a hefty 95.9ftlbs of torque.

HD Street Bob Special The Street Bob Special Edition also comes with a distinctive two-tone scallop paint and steel wire-spoked wheels with attention-grabbing red rims to deliver a bike that stands out by its looks just as much as its sound. ABS braking is standard fitment on the Special Edition whereas it is an option on the standard machine.

As 2013 marks Harley-Davidson’s 110th anniversary, authorised dealerships across the country are going all out to make this a year to remember. As well as getting an exclusive glimpse of the Street Bob, visitors to the Open House events will be able to peruse the 110th anniversary commemorative MotorClothes® and merchandise range for both men and women. With limited edition leather jackets, stylish long and short sleeved T-shirts and casual wear as well as wine glasses, ladies earrings and Harley-Davidson’s trademark HOG bank, there’s bound to be something to suit everyone’s tastes!

As if there wasn’t enough clothing to choose from, every month Harley-Davidson dealerships take delivery of brand new, limited-edition seasonal clothing. These items are essentially made to order, so once they’re gone – they’re really gone! With spring seasonal clothing already in dealerships and summer clothing on its way, be sure to check it out.

This year, Harley-Davidson UK & Ireland has teamed up with The Salvation Army too and each dealership has a dedicated donation box within the dealership. So if you fancy a spring clear out be sure to take down your unwanted clothing to the dealership and take the chance to help out those people in need. The dealership might just give you something extra to make you smile and thank you for your donation…

And the celebrations don’t stop there! This June, Harley-Davidson will be rolling into Rome for an exciting 110th anniversary extravaganza, complete with headline live entertainment, activities in Vatican City and the Port of Ostia as well as a mass motorcycle blessing by the new Pope in St Peter’s Square!
