2018 Harley-Davidson Fat Bob

Aug 24, 2017

Category: Rides

Earlier this year, Harley-Davidson released their all new Softail line including everything from cruisers to touring bikes. It’s the Fat Bob, however, that caught our attention due – in part –  to its unique silhouette, aggressive stance, and formidable performance specs.

We’ll start with the engine, where either a Milwaukee-Eight 107 or 114 rests beneath the saddle. The result is a 1746cc displacement and 110 lb-ft of torque at your fingertips. It’s an effort to convey agility and attitude in conquering whatever potholes or obstacles may lie in its way. Harley-Davidson also hooked the bike with a performance-inspired 2-1-2 exhaust with a custom contrast finish, inverted forks for precise handling, LED lighting, a high-performance front suspension, and of course a 130mm wide front tire and a 150mm-wide rear tire wrapped around 16-inch cast wheels – making them the largest and most aggressive offered by the legacy brand. More info along with the rest of the Softail collection can be found on the Harley-Davidson website.
