Harley-Davidson Street Glide Special Arctic Blast Limited

Harley-Davidson has just shown the first look at their handcrafted factory custom Street Glide Special, hand-finished in Arctic Blast paintwork from Gunslinger Custom Paint in Golden, Colorado. 

In a limited 500 serialised run with an individual number displayed on the fuel tank, the Street Glide Special was revealed at the 81st Sturgis Motorcycle Rally and will be available in this single colourway - a metallic deep blue with bright blue strokes over a pearlescent white base, and a ghosted hexagon pattern on the fairing.

The stunning paintwork is hand-finished at the Gunslinger Custom Paint facility in Golden, Colorado, completed by a roster of nationally recognised painters, designers, artists and manufacturing teams who are tier 1 suppliers for Harley-Davidson. 

Combining long-haul touring comfort and custom style, the Street Glide Special is a hot-rod bagger fitted with the latest Milwaukee-Eight 114 powerplant from the American marque and bursting at the seams with tech and gadgets. 

Key features include Prodigy custom wheels, Daymaker LED headlight, the Boom! Box GTS infotainment system with touch screen and Apple CarPlay & Android Auto compatibility, and finished with the iconic batwing fairing with split-stream vent.

Priced at £31,295 ($38,495), the Arctic Blast Street Glide Special will be available worldwide in that limited 500-model run. 

Speaking of the model, Brad Richards (Harley-Davidson Vice President of Styling and Design) said “The Arctic Blast paint is executed in strokes of high-contrast colour intended to communicate the appearance of motion,” 

“The design looks bold from a distance but offers interesting details that can only be seen up close, including a blue pearl effect over the white base, and a ghosted hexagon pattern on the fairing.”

It’s a pretty stunning looking model, and the paint finish is truly remarkable - I’d love to see it in the flesh/metal.
