The new Softail line brings the elimination of the Dyna family as well as a revamping of the previous version of the Softail family. Now rocking a new chassis, Milwaukee-Eight motors, and an upgraded suspension including a monoshock, the 2018 Softails are a whole new breed.
“The Fat Bob is surely the sportiest bike in Harley-Davidson’s lineup, but that doesn’t mean I would call it sporty. The suspension is nice and taut (though jarring for me on our short freeway stint), and the cornering clearance is better than on anything else currently available from the brand, but the riding experience reminds me of my first time riding the Sportster Forty-Eight.”
The new Fat Bob is by far the most aggressively designed model in the family. The Fat Bob is one of the Softails that can be ordered in either the 107 or 114 M-8 engines. The starting price for the new Fat Bob is $16,999.
