Fat Boy is a softail which means that the rear suspension is hidden from the view giving an impression of a “hardtail” (no shockers at the back). However, in reality, there’s a single shocker present at the lower part of the chassis and does proper damping duties. Fat Boy is possibly the most iconic motorcycles made by Harley Davidson sporting virtually perfect proportions for a cruiser. The overall fat dimensions, 17-inch bullet hole cast aluminium disc wheels, fat front forks, fuel tank and a wide handlebar lend a laid-back, yet, dominating stance unlike any other motorcycle. It is one of the most important motorcycles in Harley Davidson’s lineup. While the design has been refined over the years, it has remained largely familiar. Currently, the Fat Boy is powered by a 1690cc air-cooled V-twin engine delivering 125 NM of torque and comes with a 6-speed Cruiser Drive transmission.

Harley Davidson Fat Boy Bike Key Features

  • Harley Davidson Fat Boy Braking and Safety

    Fat Boy comes with a single 300mm disc brake at the front with a 4-piston caliper while the rear single disc brake is operated by a 2-piston caliper. Given the mass of the motorcycle, it would be nice to have a stronger braking package with a dual disc setup up front. ABS remains standard.

  • Harley Davidson Fat Boy Mileage

    Fat Boy comes with an 18.9 litres of fuel tank capacity which roughly translates to a range of around 280 km in one full tank. Not bad for a big, heavy and a powerful cruiser.
