48’s nature

To showcase the Forty-Eight’s throwback nature. Harley-Davidson has included a round headlight at the front, chopped fenders, twin exhaust canisters and chunky tyres that make it look authentic 1940s-style motorcycle. 

There is a standard six-speed gearbox on the bike’s transmission range. Incorporating traditional neutral finder and hammerhead shift levers for more control over shifting.

As for the brakes. We see front floating, rear uniform expansion rotor and dual-piston front, dual-piston rear, 49mm telescopic front forks. And single rear variable rate spring over 36mm piston nitrogen gas-charged emulsion style shock with thread style preload adjustment.
