Darker and Tougher 2014 Fat Bob projects cool authority.

Retooled Dark Custom Styling Features a Slash-Cut Rear Fender and LED Tail Light

From the double-barreled stare of its twin headlamps to the knobby tread of its burly tires, the Harley-Davidson® Fat Bob® delivers a simple message: Move over. You don’t need to be lean when you’ve got this much mean, and for 2014 the Fat Bob appears more assertive than ever thanks to a Dark Custom make-over from Harley Styling that turns this bike into a back-alley bully.

“We wanted to take the Fat Bob further into the Dark Custom realm” says Harley-Davidson Styling Manager Tony Pink. “The compact, chopped lines of the new rear fender, the angle of the shocks, and the slanting tank graphics all line up to create an aggressive new stance that’s reinforced by the new blunt-cut mufflers. The high-contrast details on the black wheels relate nicely to the tank graphic. The seat was given a new form and cover that’s more sporty and more comfortable. Bring it all together and the Fat Bob is ready to reassert its presence on the street.”

Black replaces chrome all over the Fat Bob, including the powertrain and air cleaner cover, rear shock covers, triple clamps, headlight trim rings, console and battery box cover. The Aluminium Slotted Disc wheels are powder coated black and finished with a laser-engraved Harley-Davidson logo and rim stripe.

Rolling in on a Fat Bob makes a statement that is not subtle. But this motorcycle offers more than attitude. The rigid steel backbone of its Dyna frame, a pair of thick 49mm fork legs and chassis geometry that’s tuned to turn make the Fat Bob a cruiser willing to hunt for corners and a blast to ride. Dual front disc brakes and an Anti-lock Braking System haul the Fat Bob down in a hurry. Twist the grip, dump the clutch and feel the significant kick of a Twin Cam 103™ V-Twin launch Fat Bob off the line with authority.
