Harley-Davidson Fat Bob Overview
Founded in Milwaukee,Wisconsin in 1903 this legendary manufacturer has kept the spirit of American motorcycling alive with its pathbreaking products. Known for the distinctive 'potato potato' sound courtesy their potent large capacity V-twin engines these bikes have made many a motorcyclist drool with the sheer auditory delight. Harley- Davidson comes with a lot of history and prestige and it is precisely this which has inspired a cult following in products sold worldwide under this brand name. As of today, the current product line-up has been categorised under the following categories Sportster, Dyna, Softail, V-Rod and Touring. The 'Dyna' range features custom styling with unmatched big twin performance which is ably embodied by the Dyna Fat Bob. This is one aggressive bike that demands immediate attention & respect die to its thick cut looks, aggressive front styling & beautifully designed rear end.
Harley-Davidson Fat Bob Engine & Transmission
But then this unit is all about torque and oodles of it courtesy the lightweight pistons which keep the refinement levels quite high without stressing out the engine. Slotting it into a higher gear at low speeds will not stall the engine, that's how this has been engineered. The super torquey engine is mated to a 6 speed 'cruise drive' transmission that helps keep the engine speeds and wheel speeds in constant balance ensuring that power and torque are available throughout the rev range as and when required depending on the road and riding conditions. Cruising at triple digit speeds at low engine rpm is made possible due to this perfect match between engine and gearbox. This also ensures that engine internals are also not subject to unnecessary wear and tear thus helping the engine in the long run and also keeping routine service and maintenance expenses low at the same time keeping service intervals pretty far apart.

Harley-Davidson Fat Bob Performance and Handling
Having said that, the lean angles at 30 degrees on the right and 31 degrees on the left are not too bad either with a short 1,620 mm wheelbase. The drag inspired low & straight handlebars make for a very aggressive riding stance that is further enhanced by the forward slung footpegs . The suspension is adjustable for preload helping keep the setup free to suit individual choices. The massive tyres provide ample grip and aid handling sufficiently. Featuring a huge 130/90 front on a 16 inch wheel and rear 180-70 on a 16 inch wheel, the handling gains immensely. Braking duties are taken care of via a 4-piston fixed twin disc front and 2-piston torque-free floating rear brake system featuring ABS as standard.
