The last time we checked up on Ely Buendia’s Instagram account, the OPM icon was plying Sagada’s mountain passes on a Ducati Scrambler. It’s been a year or two since then and, by the look of his more recent posts, he currently has a preference for models less Italian in nature.
Right now, it looks like his go-to bike is a Harley Davidson Softail Slim. Buendia’s official Instagram account is plastered with this model, and his unit features blacked-out components for a very stealthy aesthetic. He even took it out for a Father’s Day ride with the Cruiserheads last month. Look:
“Happy Father’s Day to me!” Buendia’s caption reads. “Bibilisan ko na pag uwi kasi tatay nako!”
The Softail Slim currently isn’t listed as available on the official Harley-Davidson Manila website, but Softail variants easily reach upwards of P1 million. The latest one comes equipped with a 1,746cc engine with 144Nm of torque.
This isn’t the only Harley-Davidson that makes an appearance on his feed, though. Buendia can also be seen riding a customized Forty-Eight that also flaunts a darker road presence.
He also recently dropped by Harley-Davidson Manila’s showroom in BGC with the Cruiserheads to check out the brand’s adventure touring offering, the Pan America. Could Buendia be planning to add this to his garage, too?
Regardless of what bike he’s taking out, one thing is apparent: The dude knows how to nail the blacked-out aesthetic he’s going for with his two-wheelers. Let us know what you think of his current taste in motorcycles in the comments.
