The all-new Fat Bob has found its way on to the showroom floor at Oakland Harley-Davidson. As of the writing of this article there were 4 2018 Fat Bob models on the floor in varying colors and engine configurations. With a half dozen or so more on the way to round out the end of the year.
...and our team can not be more excited to have such a (relatively) large inventory because this motorcycle is amazing. Our Sales and Service teams agree that this motorcycle is one heck of a ride.
"Of all of the bikes updated in the 2018 Harley-Davidson Softail cruiser line, the Fat Bob--formerly a Dyna rubber-engine-mount model with twin shocks--stretches brand DNA the most. The Fat Bob is no longer sort of a chunky-tire, muscled-up step-brother to the Street Bob. The Fat Bob now has an even stronger identity of its own, and that identity is fierce."
"Harley suggests the Fat Bob’s performance exceeds even that of the 2017 Dyna Low Rider S--largely considered the best Dyna ever made--all thanks to things like dual disc front brakes, its powerful new motor, redesigned chassis and suspension, and a new 2-into-1-into-2 performance exhaust."
"With an exacting throttle response and near flawless fueling, the 1746cc powerplant is at home in the city or being wrung out in the canyons, making it an incredibly versatile piece of kit. All of this delivered in a smooth, yet vibrant V-twin package thanks to dual counterbalancing. If you’re looking something with more legs, the Fat Bob 114 is powered by a Milwaukee-Eight 114 engine."
"Don’t let the spec sheet fool you—the 2018 Harley-Davidson Fat Bob can lean. Although the maximum lean angles are a mere single degree greater on paper this year, it certainly doesn’t feel that way on the road. The Fat Bob does seem to like a bit of direction, which adds to the thrill of it. It is engaging—push when you want to or just relax and take in the scenery."
"Despite my affections for the Low Rider S, the 2018 Harley-Davidson Fat Bob has it, and all other Dynas, beat in every conceivable way. With a completely new chassis set up, the Milwaukee-Eight engine, and compliant suspension, the idea of custom builders turning wrenches on this model is even more appealing and, in the end, that’s what owning a Harley-Davidson is all about—customization and personalization."
If any of these comments piqued your interest, come down and take one of the new 2018 Fat Bob motorcycles for a test ride. It's without a doubt one of the best ways to determine for yourself. Schedule a test ride with one of our product specialists today.
