Harley-Davidson, Fat Boy Special comes to India

Harley-Davidson India adds version of iconic bike to its 2011 lineup. Now you can flaunt the envious Fat Boy on Indian roads.

If you wanna keep it funky and informal -
"Expanding their India line-up, Harley Davidson has launched the all new Fat Boy  Special to its portfolio. With this addition, Harley-Davidson offers a new riff on one of the greatest hits to ever roll out of the Harley-Davidson design studio in India.

Darker, with a lower seat positioning than the original icon of fat-custom style, the new Harley-Davidson Fat Boy Special retains the bold presence of the original Fat Boy while offering a fresh interpretation of the motorcycle that still defines the segment. “We are grateful for the tremendous response we have received from our customers and enthusiasts in India. The Harley-Davidson Fat Boy Special, offering a special take on the motorcycle that embodies Harley-Davidson’s rich heritage,” says Anoop Prakash, Managing Director of Harley-Davidson India.

Dressed in satin chrome, the Fat Boy Special model features a reshaped seat and handlebar that places its rider ‘in’ the motorcycle, with the lowest seat height of any Harley-Davidson model. The half-moon foot boards, black wheels and leather tank panel help Fat Boy Special rock to a singular, fat-custom beat.

The Fat Boy Special is a Harley-Davidson Softail model with a rear-suspension design that mimics the lines of a vintage hard tail frame, but offers the comfort of modern suspension that is hidden under the chassis. A horseshoe oil tank located below the seat, forward foot controls or foot boards, and the classic five-gallon fuel tank are notable styling details of each Softail model.

A counter-balanced Twin Cam 96B V-Twin power train, rigid-mounted in the frame, powers the Fat Boy Special model. The rigid power train allows tight packaging of the engine within the frame. Rated at 125 nm of peak torque at 3500 rpm, the engine features Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI) and is finished in black powder coat with bright machined highlights on the cylinder fins, and satin-chrome engine and primary drive covers. The 6-Speed Cruise Drive transmission features a new helical-cut fifth gear for smooth operation.
Bookings for the bike commence this month at Rs.19,70,000/-
