    The 2018 Fat Bob is a Whole New Harley

    Posted in Motorcycles and Rides

    The forthcoming 2018 Softail Fat Bob has been completely re-designed. No longer a beefed-up Dyna, it is now powered by a rigid mounted 107 C.I. V-Twin, making it Harley’s highest performance cruiser. It’s lighter, stiffer, and obviously faster than the outgoing model. The headlight and SDBV fork up front give it an aggressive look and the rear end is cleaned up with a single under-seat coil over replacing the old dual shock set-up. This is a new direction for Harley and we like where it’s going.

The engine was re-fitted from its 803cc displacement to a lighter, city-friendly 400cc build. This is another one-of-a-kind bike from Diamond and of course it’s sold.
