The Harley-Davidson Fat Boy is one of the four models from the manufacturer’s Softail range. It sports a traditional American cruiser design language with its hardtail look, laidback riding position and plenty of chrome.
The bike gets chrome components all around and an LED headlamp unit. It sports chopped fenders that expose the trademark ‘disc wheels’. These wheels are wrapped in a 160mm tyre for the front and a massive 240mm tyre for the rear.
The Fat Boy sports a wide FLH-style handlebar, a hand-laced leather tank panel, a textured leather seat insert, hidden wiring, custom metal fenders, floorboards and shotgun-style dual exhausts. The bike features a semi-digital instrument on its tank which displays odometer, fuel level, clock, trip, range, tachometer, low battery voltage and low fuel indication.
The bike’s new frame houses the 1745cc Milwaukee-Eight 107 engine, which delivers 144Nm of torque through a six-speed gearbox. It rides on cartridge type front forks and a rear monoshock. The cruiser weighs 322kg and gets a large 19.1 litre fuel tank capacity.
Pricing for the Harley-Davidson Fat Boy begins at Rs 17.49 lakhs and the bike is available in seven different colour options- black, dull black, grey, white, red/black, blue/black and a ‘Legend Blue’ paint scheme.
