The distinctive Harley-Davidson Fat Boy is back for 2021, with the Milwaukee-Eight 114 powerplant and machined solid cast aluminum Lakester wheels. We tested the Fat Boy 30th Anniversary last year, and it is functionally the same as the 2021 edition. So, let’s go over the cosmetic changes that the 2021 Fat Boy 114 is enjoying.

2021 Harley-Davidson Fat Boy: Price and MSRP

Harley-Davidson calls the 2021 Fat Boy 114’s new look “Bright Chrome Styling.” So, it’s all about the chrome—front to back. Here’s what has the shiny goodness:

  • Engine covers
  • Rocker covers
  • Ventilator air filter cover
  • Mufflers
  • Exhaust shields
  • Headlight nacelle
  • Fork covers
  • Handlebar risers
  • Fuel tank console
  • Rear fender struts

There are four color options, including a two-tone choice:

  • Vivid Black
  • Black Jack Metallic
  • Deadwood Green
  • Gauntlet Gray Metallic/Vivid Black

The MSRP for the 2021 Harley-Davidson Fat Boy 114 starts at $19,999 and goes up if you want any color other than Vivid Black.
