The bike costs Rs.8.5 Lakhs (Ex-Showroom, New Delhi).
The bike has a low riding position. The bike claims to have polished rubber-mounted Evolution 1200 cc V-Twin engine. Other noticeable features of the bike are the low solo seat, under-mounted mirrors, side mount license plate, clean rear fender and tall and fat front tire.
“The engine with Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI) and performance tuning with a broad torque curve, the Forty-Eight motorcycle delivers a powerfully responsive ride with smooth clutch effort. The pipes on the chrome, shorty dual exhaust pound out the distinctive Harley-Davidson V-Twin sound.
The Forty-Eight embraces the street up front with forward foot controls, low profile custom handlebar, fork-mounted turn signals, slammed speedometer mounting bracket and fork brace with lightening holes. A unique dual texture seat with a height of 26 inches fits the lone rider, while a passenger pillion, footpegs and backrest are some of the many accessories that can be added. Bookings for the Forty-Eight will commence in April 2011, at Harley-Davidson dealerships around India.”
