2019 Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight And Street Glide Special India Launch Done which adds another motorcycle to the portfolio
Harley-Davidson India adds to the long legacy of its Sportster motorcycle line with the introduction of the Forty-Eight Special model in India. The new high-bar Sportster combines throw-back styling trends from the custom-bike scene with the solid foundation of the Sportster platform and the punchy performance of the Evolution 1200 V-Twin engine.
Since its introduction in 1957, Sportster motorcycles have been repeatedly re-imagined, in the hands of both the Motor Company and bike owners: The Sportster as a bobber, a chopper, a scrambler and a café racer; as a hero on flat tracks and drag strips and road-race courses; as an accessible entry-point for first-time riders, and as a custom-of-one cruiser.
The company’s legacy leans on 116 years of building some of the most iconic motorcycles. With fans across the world, it was 10 years ago that the brand established a subsidiary in India.
The burly front end of the Forty-Eight Special – a 130mm front tire framed by 49mm forks secured in massive forged aluminium triple clamps – looks especially menacing when topped with a gloss-black, 7.25-inch high Tallboy handlebar. FORTY-EIGHT SPECIAL – 1200cc Evolution® V-Twin engine making 96 Nm of torque and comes with an emulsion rear shock with a screw pre-load adjuster which helps in easy adjustment according to your riding style.
Street Glide Special is powered by a 1,868cc Milwaukee-Eight 114 engine that churns 163Nm of torque at 3,000 rpm. The Street Glide Special features the brand’s ‘Boom Box GTS’ audio system. Its 6.5-inch full-TFT touchscreen is as an infotainment system, allowing the rider to control music, phone calls, messages and navigation while on the move. The big cruiser also features a large 22.7-litre fuel tank and weighs 362kg dry.
