Harley-Davidson's new Forty-Eight
Harley-Davidson has announced the addition of the new Forty-Eight model to its Indian model portfolio. The Forty-Eight motorcycle is a factory custom in the tradition of the hot rod Sportster line.
Riding low with a slammed suspension and featuring the classic "peanut" fuel tank, the Forty-Eight backs up its bulldog appearance with the performance of its blacked out and polished rubber-mounted Evolution 1200cc V-Twin engine. The low solo seat, under-mounted mirrors, side mount license plate, clean rear fender and tall and fat front tire emphasize the Forty Eight's focus on chiseled customization.
With Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI) and performance tuning with a broad torque curve, the Forty-Eight motorcycle delivers a powerfully responsive ride with smooth clutch effort. The pipes on the chrome, shorty dual exhaust pound out the distinctive Harley-Davidson V-Twin sound.
The Forty-Eight will be introduced at Rs. 8,50,000 (ex-showroom Delhi). Bookings for the Forty-Eight will commence in April 2011, at Harley-Davidson dealerships around India.
