The 2018 Harley-Davidson Fat Bob is a far cry from the previous generation Fat Bob sold in India with a more butch design and fat tyres. The Harley-Davidson Fat Bob in its mean 2018 avatar looks like it will not just munch miles, but devour them. The 2018 Harley-Davidson Fat Bob is part of the new Softail family of eight motorcycles that Harley-Davidson recently unveiled. The Harley-Davidson Fat Bob will feature the new Milwaukee Eight 107 V-twin engine that we saw in the Touring range of Harley-Davidson earlier this year. A lighter and stronger chassis, modern updates including LED headlamps, USB charging points, a new suspension setup are some of the features you will see on the new 2018 Harley-Davidson Fat Bob which is coming to India soon. To get an idea of the changes the 2018 Harley-Davidson Softail family has undergone, here is a quick rundown.
Here's a look at some of its features:
The all-new mild steel frame on the 2018 Fat Bob is lighter and 34 per cent stiffer than earlier. The motorcycle has lost an overall 9.97kg over the previous model
The size of the fat 180/70-16 rear tyre is well-highlighted by the new bobbed rear featuring a floating splash guard that houses the number plate
The 2018 Harley-Davidson comes powered by the Milwaukee Eight 107 cubic-inch (1,745cc) V-twin engine that produces 145Nm and sounds out its fury through the 2-1-2 magnesium-finish exhaust
New instrumentation has a simple layout and has a dark finish. It sits on a fuel tank which has an asymmetrical graphics
The Daymaker Signature LED headlamps are the highlight of the front end and truly set the Fat Bob apart in a sea of round-lamped bobbers.
The front also features inverted Showa Dual Bending Valve forks, and dual disc brakes, while the rear suspension is a preload-adjustable Showa monoshock unit
