Harley releases 13.5 FXDBA Street Bob Limited
The new Street Bob® Limited is a rare beast: a pure bobber, pushed further. Inspired by the Harley-Davidson Factory Customization programme, this is a strictly limited edition motorcycle is only available in select markets including Australia and New Zealand.
Restyled for 2013, the Harley-Davidson® Street Bob® Limited is a stripped-down and rowdy bobber based on the Harley-Davidson® Dyna® platform, appealing to riders who appreciate the pure essence of motorcycling. The new model includes an upgraded 1690cc engine to deliver that unmistakable Harley-Davidson rumble through the powerful V-Twin engine at the heart of a bike which boasts stripped-down, eye catching styling that carries only the most essential equipment.
Embellished with a distinctive two-tone scallop paint and steel laced wheels – complete with attention grabbing red rims – the new model delivers stand out looks to match its unique sound. The Street Bob® Limited 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 Limited – a solo seat, chopped rear fender, and mini ape-hanger handlebar – which give the motorcycle an unmistakable profile. New styling features include a black Twin Cam 103™ power train with highlighted details, blacked-out front end, clean rear fender with combination stop/tail/turn lighting.
