About Harley Davidson Forty Eight
Harley-Davidson globally introduced the Forty-Eight model in 2010. Featuring a peanut-shaped fuel tank, wire wheels, a fat front tire and chopped front fender, under mount mirrors and a low single seat, the Forty-Eight is among the sub-Rs 10 lakh offerings from the iconic motorcycle maker for the Indian market.
The Forty-Eight distinguishes itself from the rest of the Harley range with its distinctive design elements like the beefy front wheel, slammed speedometer and rearview mirrors mounted under the handlebar. For 2014, Harley-Davidson has made a few enhancements to this model which includes bigger brake rotors, more powerful calipers and stainless steel braided lines. The 2014 model also features a new closed loop exhaust system which Harley says is designed to meet future worldwide emission norms.
The Forty-Eight comes powered by a 1202cc, air cooled V-Twin engine which produces close to 60bhp of power and 90Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox and offers oodles of torque across the entire rev range. Harley-Davidson is offering 292mm and 260mm discs at the front and rear respectively.
As is the case with every Harley-Davidson motorcycle, the Forty-Eight can be had with a vast array of customisable options right from the paint scheme and the exhaust to riding apparels. The Forty-Eight is currently on sale across all Harley-Davidson showrooms in India.
