2017 Harley-Davidson Dyna Fat Bob

2017 Harley-Davidson Dyna Fat Bob for sale

Everything about the 2017 Harley-Davidson Dyna Fat Bob is muscular. From the beefy 16-inch wheels and the dual headlights to the High Output Twin Cam 103 engine and blacked-out finishes, the Fat Bob exudes power.

Tommy Gun mufflers are abbreviated and purposeful, and the passenger function of the seat is low-key. Forward controls and drag bars give the rider an aggressive stance, while the Dunlop tires provide both a strong grip of the road, as well as cushioning from mistreated inner-city roads—a good thing, as the shocks have just two inches of travel.

With limited cornering clearance, tight canyons are not the Fat Bob’s natural domain. Instead, this is a serious urban assault vehicle, with performance to match its attitude.
