Today’s bike of the day is the Harley-Davidson Fat Boy. This is the perfect bike if retro-style cruising is your thing.
It has all the right bits in all the right places, from the Milwaukee V-twin to characteristic disc wheels and even the badge on the tank.
It’s not the most comfortable of hogs but is almost certainly the best looking.
For most Fat Boy owners its surprisingly good. The rear suspension can give a slightly harsh ride but otherwise, it’s well balanced, predictable and easy to steer and manoeuvre.
The engine was boosted again in 2006 from 1450cc to 1584cc – the original motorcycles were 1340cc. The 1584cc produces 65bhp and will reach a top speed of 110mph, it’s still a vibey dinosaur but that’s all part of the appeal.
They are rather pricey for what they are, but as is the case with most Harleys, there’s no alternative.
