Aggressive, unapologetic styling, mind-blowing performance and handling, premium finishes, and the massive torque of the Milwaukee-Eight® engine. It’s the new newest version of the all-American softail classic; 2019 Fat Bob, which has just reached the Maltese shores and is now ready for test-runs and purchase.
The concept of the Fat Bob was initially derived from the 1984 popular ‘Softail’ and designed as a prototype by none other than Willie G. Davidson and Louie Netz in Milwaukee for the Daytona Bike Week rally at Daytona Beach in 1988 and 1989. Tinkering and improvements on the design throughout the years that followed successfully gave the Fat Bob one of the most unique and indefinable looks of a generation. Hollywood producers impressed by the raw nature and spirit of the bike, proudly took the Fat Bob in their blockbuster movies and most acclaimed series, such as Terminator, Sons of Anarchy, Wild Hogs and CSI: Miami, creating the planned brand association with its target audience.
The brand name, the reputation, but most of all the tireless work of the Harley-Davidson Engineers and Designers is what made this motorcycle a beast to be reckoned with. The Fat Bob 2019 is all Harley-Davidson in power and sound, rocking a modern and aggressive look, matched with chunky tires and a bold 2-into-1-into-2 bronze-hue exhaust-pipe treatment.
Strapped in with the standard-issue Milwaukee-Eight 107, the Fat Bob delivers its power steadily throughout the entire rev range system, boasting an impressive 107 pound-feet of peak torque at 3,500 rpm (and even more from the upgraded and available M-8 114 engine). An impressive 28-degree steering-head angle as well as a compact 63.6-inch wheelbase allow the motorcycle to easily cut through tight corners, while its inverted 43mm Showa Dual Bending Valve fork increases steadiness as it reduces weight for a more composed and comfortable ride.
Designed with the sole intention of shaking up the status quo, the Softail Fat Bob successfully blends Harley-Davidson’s mind-blowing performance and handling with a unique unapologetic style and the premium finishing details the American brand are globally renowned for.
