2015 Harley-Davidson FXDF Fat Bob Review

2015 Harley-Davidson FXDF Fat Bob on Totalmotorcycle.com

The Fat Bob® motorcycle. Blacked-out finishes, blunt cut mufflers, one-of-a-kind tank graphics. Surly attitude hits a new high…

From the double-barreled stare of its twin headlamps to the knobby tread of its burly tires, the Harley-Davidson® Fat Bob® makes a statement that is not subtle. But this motorcycle offers more than attitude. The rigid steel backbone of its Dyna® frame, a pair of thick 49 mm fork legs and chassis geometry that’s tuned to turn make the Fat Bob a cruiser willing to hunt for corners and a blast to ride. Dual front disc brakes haul the Fat Bob down in a hurry.

2015 Harley-Davidson FXDF Fat Bob Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Aggressive Front End

With its wide stance and fat styling, the Fat Bob® comes on like a back-alley brawler: big, bold and dripping with attitude. Muscled up forks, dual headlamps and a 16-inch front wheel wrapped in a 130mm tire give it a menacing, all-business stance and powerful performance.

Blacked Out Finishes

The Fat Bob model proves there’s no such thing as too much black. From the aluminum triple clamps and battery box cover to the headlight trim ring and rear shock covers, this thick-cut, menacing bad boy is blacked out from top to bottom, nose to tail. Go ahead. Flash some black.

Drag-Style Handlebar

The Fat Bob® motorcycle features an internally wired 1 1/4-inch bar with tall risers. This beefy handlebar is truly reminiscent of an aggressive quarter mile monster. And with the wires routed through the steel, you get a clean, minimal look with nothing standing in your way of the open road.

Dual Front Chrome Headlamp

Twice the custom style. Twice the badass attitude. The Fat Bob® model features a distinctive cast chrome double headlamp bucket with a black trim ring. It blasts open the night so you can see everything in your path. And with double the chrome coverage of a single bucket, you’re bound to turn twice as many heads on the boulevard.

Blacked Out Twin Cam 103™ Engine

Stand out, even under the cover of darkness. With the blacked out Twin Cam 103™ cubic-inch, rubber-mounted, air-cooled engine beneath you, the night is yours. And should that notion be questioned, the deep, guttural rumble will make it perfectly clear that giving ground is not an option.

Black Machined Aluminum Slotted Disc Wheels

Whoever said black was slimming obviously has never seen the burly front end of the Fat Bob. The fat rubber is wrapped around pure black, machined aluminum slotted disc wheels with laser engraved graphics. Even the most formidable stretches of unwelcoming urban pavement will cower out of sheer intimidation.

Diagonal Tank Graphics

In a world of more, more, more, sometimes just enough is all you really need. These minimal tank graphics give a nod to the stripped-down nature of the bike. At the same time, the diagonal lines match its aggressive stance. No nonsense. No frills. Pure attitude. You don’t need to say much to make a bold statement.

Blunt Cut Mufflers

This devil is all the way in these details. These blunt cut mufflers perfectly complement the aggressive lines of the rear fender, black-covered shocks and tank graphics. This is the Harley-Davidson attention to detail. And it’s the reason our bikes have been grabbing attention for over 110 years.

Low Profile Tank Console

It’s sleek. It’s black. It keeps an ultra-low profile. This tank console with 5-inch gage and integral ignition switch gives the Fat Bob a true custom look, for those who refuse to blend in with the herd.

rimmed Rear Fender

Let’s just say it’s about the minimum amount of rear fender allowed by law. Slash-cut rear with chrome support, this fender won’t hide your rubber from anyone you happen to blow by. And the dual ring LED tail lamp complements the twin headlamp out front. Which means that even in the dark of night you’ll still turn heads.

Blacked Out Rear Shocks

We’re the last ones to screw with a good thing. Which is why the Fat Bob® model comes with the same high-performance, coil-over rear shocks revered by so many riders. But with a little less chrome and a lot more black. Trust us, only the eye will perceive a difference.

Two Up Seat

You spend a lot of time in the saddle, so we spent a lot of time designing a better one. This two-up seat is sleek and ergonomically sculpted to fit as comfortably as your leather jacket. And it puts you in a riding position that commands instant respect in whatever town you happen to be rumbling into. Saddle up and raise a little hell. Who knows, maybe you’ll pick up a friend along the way.

Pure Harley-Davidson Styling

Feast your eyes on the Twin Cam 103™ engine and there’s no mistaking its roots. This is authentic Harley-Davidson style through and through with an attention to detail you won’t find from any other motorcycle company. Black powder-coated heads and cylinders are highlighted by machined cooling fin tips and chrome rocker covers. It’s a jewel machined out of metal. Pure. Dripping with power. From the classic edge of the cooling fins to the clean lines of cases and covers—the Twin Cam 103™ engine makes an ironclad statement about holding on to what’s right and staying true to what satisfies.

Six-Speed Cruise Drive® Transmission

You want a ride that rumbles—not begs for mercy—when you lean on it a little. The Six-Speed Cruise Drive® transmission provides smooth, quiet shifting and reduces engine speed on the highway, so you get a better match between engine turnover and road speed. It’s a rare ride when a bike responds like this, and a low growl goes a long way when you’re opening up the road ahead.

Twin Cam 103™ Engine Heritage

The knowledge of what makes an engine truly move a rider runs deep at The Motor Company, and it was put to good use when we created the Twin Cam 103™ engine. We sweated bullets perfecting every cubic inch, pushing design and technology forward. And we did it all without compromising one bit of Harley-Davidson’s unique styling. Evolved, yet carrying on the legacy of the Flathead, Knucklehead, Panhead, Shovelhead, Evolution® and Twin Cam 88® and Twin Cam 96® engines that came before. The performance and durability are a direct result of the untold miles logged on the V-Twin since 1909 and the proud heritage that comes from a century’s worth of commitment to life on two wheels.

Twin Cam 103™ Engine Innovation

Fire up the Twin Cam 103™ engine and feel the low-end torque unleashed. Thanks to the lightweight piston design, delivery of the added power is more refined than ever. Then put your foot on the shifter and feel how the engine and Six-Speed Cruise Drive® transmission were designed to work together. Six speeds. A strong driveline and strong internal parts. Low routine maintenance. And a low cruising rpm couldn’t feel better.

Twin Cam 103™ Engine Power

Live your ride to the power of Twin Cam 103™ engine. The air cooled Twin Cam 103™ engine delivers more stump-pulling torque, while its Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection jetting gives crisp, lively throttle reaction. It’s a performance punch that you’ll appreciate when passing, climbing hills, or rolling with luggage packed or a passenger in back—all under that signature Motor Company rumble. And it comes at lower cruising rpm, so you ride more smoothly, with less engine vibration and better highway fuel economy.

H-D® Smart Security System (Optional)

The optional factory-installed next-generation security system features a hands-free fob that automatically arms and disarms the vehicle’s electronic security functions as you approach and walk away from the bike. Stick the fob on your ignition key ring and let it do all the work. It’s this attention to detail and security that make Harley-Davidson® motorcycles unique.

Anti-Lock Brakes (Optional)

You may be cruising with swagger, but you know safety counts. This sophisticated, factory-installed ABS gives ‘stopping power’ a double meaning. You’ll turn heads with clean, streamlined design. But more importantly, you get certainty in the saddle knowing your bike’s going to behave when you need it.

Adjustable Suspension

Easily adjust preload with a spanner wrench to suit your suspension to your riding style. The slammed low rear suspension gives you a more laid-back riding position and style. Low-profile, kicked back for profiling down the boulevard and hugging corners.

Dual Disc Front Brakes

Keeping your mind clear and soaking up the freedom of the open road means not fretting about your ride. Especially when it comes to stopping. High performance, sleek design, the dual disc brakes feature 4-piston fixed calipers out front grabbing on floating rotors for superior stopping power

Forward-Mounted Controls

With the custom forward-mounted controls on the Fat Bob® model, you can kick back a little and stretch your legs for the ultimate cruise through town or across the state line. It’s time to take in the open road the way you were meant to—on a two-wheeled machine that’s built to outdo the rest.
