If actions speak louder than words, the 2017 Forty-Eight® speaks louder still with its low-slung, Dark Custom™ attitude and signature bulldog stance. Back in 1948, the world was introduced to this motorcycle’s 2.1-gallon gas tank. The Forty-Eight® isn’t rebuilt; it’s altogether reloaded! Here’s a bike that features drag-style handlebars, a 1200cc Evolution® engine, large 49mm front forks and cast aluminum wheels with floating rotors. There’s no question… the Forty-Eight® will get you where you need to go.
