The Dark Custom line up from Harley-Davidson includes the 2016 H-D Forty-Eight. This update gives the motorcycle a new design scheme with retro styling cues. The new model also gets a new suspension set-up similar to the one on the Iron 883. Like the Iron 883, it gets an improved emulsion rear shock with screw adjustability. The Forty-Eight gets new light weight mag wheels and a large front end featuring 49mm forks. In terms of comfort, the Forty-Eight gets a new seat that has been reworked in terms of material and design.
