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.
