The 2019 Harley Davidson Forty-Eight has heavy-hitting style with fat tires and iconic peanut tank. Designed with its signature bulldog stance and a powerful 1200cc engine.

1200cc at your command to deliver tons of torque for an unforgettably fun ride.

A balance of blacked-out and chrome finishes give it that authentic custom attitude.

Authentic bold 70’s-inspired tank graphic and badge shows the bike’s retro roots.

A bulldog stance with a slammed speedometer and peanut tank, massive triple clamps, and 49mm front forks.

Ride with your fists in the wind with the black Tallboy® handlebars. Shaped to provide the ideal balance of rise and width.

A ribbed, solo style seat redesigned for all-day cruising comfort while maintaining the bike’s minimalist style.

Features an Emulsion rear shock with a screw pre-load adjuster that soaks up every bump the street throws your way, and easily adjusts to fit your riding style.

Split nine-spoke wheels that are black as night from rim to rubber to compliment the Dark Custom look.
