“Sometimes something comes along that changes everything.”- Harley-Davidson
“When Willie G. Davidson rode the Fat Boy® model into Bike Week the first time, let’s just say it stopped traffic. No one had ever seen a factory custom motorcycle with this much visual impact before. The look was pure Harley, yet totally new. In the years since, the Fat Boy hasn’t let up. From the chrome of the solid disc wheels, to the muscular lines of the new High Output Twin Cam 103B™ engine to the curve of its distinctive rear fender, this machine is built to make an impact. Ride one and you’ll understand.”

The air-cooled 45° V-Twin engine
“Its clean and uncluttered shape fits perfectly in the downtubes of the frame. Twist the throttle and the surge of torque hits you exactly where it counts. We counterbalance the engine, which means we can bolt it directly to the frame. It keeps the styling tight at the center of the bike. It lets the rider feel the pulse of the V-Twin. With the High Output Twin Cam 103B™ engine, there aren’t any vibrations rattling the fillings out of your teeth. More power is always a Harley-Davidson tradition”
“The authentic look of a Softail motorcycle comes from the days before anyone knew much about building a suspension. The rigid hardtail frames of yesteryear had a pure, uncluttered look that riders still love. But the bone-rattling ride meant your grandpa needed to strap on a kidney belt to keep his internals intact. The Softail family uses modern technology to consign the kidney belt to the museum. We’ve kept all the modern comforts where they belong—below the surface of a rad bike loaded with authentic style. You get the classic lines of a vintage “hardtail” frame with the horizontal rear shocks hidden in the guts. It’s a signature rigid look, and you’ll only find it on a Softail model.”
