About Forty Eight

Harley-Davidson Forty Eight is a cruiser bike available at a starting price of Rs. 13,51,149 in India. It is available in only 1 variant and 3 colours. The Harley-Davidson Forty Eight is powered by 1202cc BS6 engine which develops a power of 65.7 bhp and a torque of 96 Nm. With both front and rear disc brakes, Harley-Davidson Forty Eight comes up with anti-locking braking system. This Forty Eight bike weighs 252 kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 7.9 liters.

The Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight has received mechanical upgrades to comply with the newest emission norms. The updated, 1,202cc, V-twin cylinder, air-cooled engine delivers a maximum torque output of 97Nm at 4,250rpm. The motor is linked to a five-speed gearbox.

The BS6-compliant Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight is available in a single variant and three colour options – Vivid Black, Billiard Teal, and Midnight Crimson. The Billiard Teal and Midnight Crimson paint options carry a price premium over the Vivid Black colour.

The styling cues retain a round headlight at the front, a compact (7.9-litre) fuel tank, a rider-only saddle, twin exhaust, and twin exhaust canisters. The braking hardware on the motorcycle includes single discs with dual-piston callipers on both wheels while the safety net includes dual-channel ABS. The suspension tasks are handled by 49mm forks at the front and an Emulsion shock with a screw pre-load adjuster at the rear.

The motorcycle tips the weighing scale at 252kg (kerb) and boasts a seat height of 710mm. The 16-inch alloy wheels are wrapped in 130/90-section front and 150/80-section rear tyres.
