2018 Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight Special - May 2018 Window Bike
The Forty-Eight Special from Harley-Davidson was also gracing our window and shop this month. It bears a bunch of similarities with the Iron 1200, including the powerplant, but it's a little lower and a little beefier looking with dual 16" wheels with fat tires and more substantial front forks.
If you're into a more minimal front end, the Forty-Eight Special might appeal a little more as it doesn't have the mini fairing. The last major difference is that the Forty-Eight Special has forward controls which some people really like, and definitely help on those long highway cruises. But for us, the part that really sets this bike off, is the AMF era paint. We are big fans of the designs and Harley-Davidson should be stoked!!
We still have both bikes at the shop for a little while longer. Make sure you stop in to check them out in person!
