We have already told you about the two new additions to the Sportster family, the Iron 1200 and the Forty-Eight Special. The American motorcycle manufacturer states that the new fuel tank graphics distinguish both the Iron 1200 and the Forty-Eight Special, and combine bold color stripes with a formal typeface, color and graphic elements originally popular in the 1970s."The art on these two fuel tanks reflect contemporary trends we are seeing on custom bikes and in design in general, a move away from more complex and intricate art to a look that's very simple and clean" statesBrad Richards, Harley-Davidson V.P. of Styling & Design. He further adds, "We specifically selected the tallboy bar for its (Forty-Eight Special) shape as it offers less pull-back than the Mini-Ape, a look that really works with the steamroller front end and the smaller fuel tank on the Forty-Eight Special model." Here is a detailed look at the2018 Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight Special through images

The burly front end of the Forty-Eight Special - a 130mm front tire framed by 49mm forks secured in massive forged aluminum triple clamps - looks especially menacing
