Harley Davidson Fat Bob

This big, bold, brute of a machine maintains the black styling of its Dark Custom™ brothers but does so in its own unique way. It has dual front headlamps for extra visibility, and the potent 103 engine exhaling through a Tommy Gun 2-1-2 exhaust system provides breathtaking performance. Up front it has muscled up forks, a 16inch front wheel armed with dual discs and encased by a 130mm tyre. At the rear, there’s a chopped fender and both wheels are fitted with bespoke Dunlop® tyres.

From the double-barreled stare of its twin headlamps to the knobby tread of its burly tires, the Harley-Davidson® Fat Bob® makes a statement that is not subtle. But this motorcycle offers more than attitude. The rigid steel backbone of its Dyna® frame, a pair of thick 49 mm fork legs and chassis geometry that’s tuned to turn make the Fat Bob a cruiser willing to hunt for corners and a blast to ride. Dual front disc brakes haul the Fat Bob down in a hurry.
