The iconic Fat Boy, which still retains the generous amounts of chrome, looks pretty dashing with the new LED headlamp unit and updated styling. Harley-Davidson have introduced the new Showa Dual Bending Valve front forks on the entire Softail line-up for better feel, handling, and ride-quality. The bike also gets a rear monoshock with tool-less preload adjustment.
The Fat Bob has got a rather dramatic update in the form of the new Daymaker Projector LED lamps and inverted front forks. The bike is being pitched as a sportier cruiser rather a traditional one and that’s the reason for the USD fork and easy-adjustable rear monoshock. The Fat Bob also gets 2-1-2 exhaust with upswept end-cans, dual front disc brakes, and cast wheels with wide tyres. The Fat Bob will be available with the same Milwaukee Eight 107 V-twin motor.
The Street Bob retains its minimalistic bobber style with all the new mechanical changes integrated beautifully into it. However, it gets a new digital instrument console, albeit with minimalistic elements being displayed on the screen. It continues to have mini-ape hanger handlebars, wire-wheels and a tiny headlamp.
The Heritage Classic, which is the more traditional cruiser, gets new lockable and water-proof saddlebags, Daymaker Signature LED headlamps, detachable windscreen, cruise control, wire-wheels, a well-balanced chrome and blacked out theme, and dual-tone paint options.
All these four bikes are now available at all the H-D dealerships across the country. Make sure to grab your copy of Bike India’s November issue to read our first ride reports of the Fat Bob and Street Bob.
