1. Buying experience was excellent i got the delivery within two days i liked the service of the seven island harley davidson. Was happy to deal with harley davidson.
2. I rode forty eight for more than 8000 kms i ride it on daily basis. I had a good experience about bike riding in cities as same as bad experience also. Forty eight is not too comfortable for riding.
3. Detailing and looks of the bike are amazing looks like pure harley davidson. All the curves and body is built with for indian roads only upset with ground clearance. Performance of the bike is amazing. The jerk it gives is mind blowing. The power it throws is purely feels we are riding 1200 cc.
The power we get even we are double seat on bike is just awesome. Braking and handling of the bike is also very good according to seating. But still needs a abs
3. I serviced my bike in harley davidson showroom only i didn't got any major issue on my bike and the service quality is also very good. Even the service costs are also fare enough. One thing is that i am facing a lot the battery issue. The major issue i think this the only problem i am facing from harley davidson forty eight.
4. Advantages of forty eight are i can take it in city and can handle it easily in traffic. Very good in handling. Seating position comfortable in city rides and even on short rides around 100kms. Having only 8 liter of tank fuel efficiency is good. Quality which is provided is excellent. We can talk of paint quality and make of it high quality fiber quality is also excellent. Both tyres size are like made for forty eight only.
Like the advantages there are many disadvantages also.
Like it has main problem of battery.
Which get low regularly if bike is at one place for two days.
And the main bike need is abs. Company should upgrade on new version with abs it is very difficult to control a long cruiser like forty eight on curves.
And the ground clearance is also two low. Touches every speed breakers. It is the weak point to ride in cities.
