The Forty-Eight Special retains most of its looks, such as the peanut tank, fat and stubby wheels as well as the iconic Harley Davidson V-twin engine.
Harley Davidson added two new motorcycles to its line-up; the Forty-Eight Special and Street Glide Special. Along with modern styling and graphics, the choppers are armed with a better and more powerful engine. While the Street Glide Special maintains its price as the previous generation, the Forty-Eight Special has been hiked by Rs. 40000.
The Forty-Eight Special retains most of its looks, such as the peanut tank, fat and stubby wheels as well as the iconic Harley Davidson V-twin engine. However, it gets taller handlebars and new graphics for the 2019 iteration. It carries over the 102CC V-twin, air-cooled engine from the previous generation Forty-Eight. It makes 97Nm of peak torque at 3,500 rpm.
The Street Glide Special, on the other hand, has undergone an almost complete makeover. In spite of retaining the laidback tourer stance, with saddlebags on either side and a windscreen in the front, it gets many new components. One of the most significant changes is the new Milwaukee-Eight 114 engine. It is a 1868CC V-Twin motor pumping out 163Nm of peak torque at 3,000 rpm. This is an increase of 13Nm over the previous generation. It also gets Talon alloys, blacked-out body parts as well as a new Boom Box GTS touchscreen infotainment system.
