Harley developed the MT500 in the ’80s for military use, hence its camo paint, gun case and ammo panniers. But it never took off, and only 500 were made. This particular bike has never been driven. It’s expected to fetch at least $20K when it hits the auction block on 1/26/17.
Harley continues to sneak modern tech into the Softail while keeping its classic style. The Softail Slim S has a 1.7L Twin Cam 110B engine that produces up to 109 ft.lb. of torque, an efficient 6-speed transmission and an optional retro army olive and black finish.
To arrive at the design of its B-Rocket watches, B & R first designed a custom aviation-influenced Harley-Davidson motorcycle which served as inspiration for the watch faces. Seems like a roundabout route, but both look great.
