Harley-Davidson has launched its latest offering for India, the Fat Bob, priced at Rs 12.8 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi)

The bike is powered by a 1690cc, air-cooled, Twin Cam103 V-twin engine, which is mated to a six-speed transmission. The V-twin is capable of producing a meaty 135.6Nm of torque at 3500rpm. To highlight its touring nature, an 18.8-litre hand crafted fuel tank is employed on the bike. Further adding to the appeal is a Tommy Gun exhaust that produces a thundering exhaust note. 

 

Harley’s commitment to India, which it considers a vital, upcoming market, can be gauged from the fact that they have already set up an assembly plant in Balal, Haryana. The company will also be expanding its current nine-dealer network with its 10th showroom opening in Goa by the end of the year and further three showrooms slated to open in Jaipur, Indore and Pune by 2013. Harley-Davidson reported strong sales in 2011, managing around 1,000 units and expects the numbers to further improve in 2012. The Fat Bob will join Harley’s already impressive line-up for India which includes bikes from the Sportster, Dyna, Softail, V Rod, Touring and CVO model range.
