The Forty-Eight is one of the most prominent bikes from Harley-Davidson. Well, for 2016, the company has upgraded the bike, which retains major cues it got in 2008.
An upgrade has been provided in the suspension department while keeping the classic look of the bike intact.
The Forty-Eight borrows the technology updates from the Iron 883. This means that the on-road performance of the bike has been enhanced.
Now the bike offers better ground tracking even on rougher surfaces, thanks to the progressive-rate springs.
According to Harley-Davidson, the new springs will compliment the company’s “oil lock” during hard braking, in order to eliminate wheel hopping.
Some other cool features include a new set of nitrogen-charged shocks with 36mm pistons and new upgraded oil, black cast rims, machines accents and beefy bobber front wheel. ABS is optional.
Chrome accents have been used to complete the look and there are lively color options available to choose from – Olive Gold, hard Candy Cancun Blue Flake, Hard Candy Gold Flake, Velocity Red Sunglo, Billet Silver and Vivid Black.
The prices in the US start at $11,199, while in Germany from €12,345.
