2017 Harley-Davidson Softail Fat Boy

2017 Harley-Davidson Softail Fat Boy price

Distinctive disc wheels sets the 2017 Harley-Davidson Softail Fat Boy from the rest of the competition. The faux bullet holes in the wheels give the bike a bit of a sinister appeal, while the chrome captures all sorts of positive attention.

The High Output Twin Cam 103B motor provides all the thrust the hefty 200mm rear wheel needs, and the high profile tires assist the suspension in taking on road irregularities.

The prominent headlight tells the world you’re coming, as does the gruff sound from the over/under shotgun exhaust system. ABS is standard, which is helpful with the Fat Boy’s high-traction Dunlop tires.
