There’s something about the Fat Bob that keeps on gathering a crowd this year too, the drag bike look sustained by the very same V-twin engine as on the rest of the Dyna models. So it is purely aesthetical. Of course not! It’s about offering comfort and the engine’s unique performance in a package that is designed accordingly to the rider’s preferences which in this case conclude in the aggressive drag bike appearance.
Harley-Davidson always knew how and when to line up to the needs of each specific rider crowd and when it comes to all the rebels out there, the Dyna Street Bob is among the favorite choices. Standing as a reminder of the post-war Bobber design and being powered by a V-twin engine that is as modern as they get, the 2009 model year is history brought back in our complete attention.
Two of the most skillfully crafted models in the Dyna family, the Super Glide and Super Glide Custom carry on being produced as 2009 model years with little but significant changes and actually manage to look like being in a class of their own as they are long, refined and pretty much reduced to the very essence of riding a Harley-Davidson motorcycle in style.
The bikes will indeed go for the long haul, but there are no fancy on board systems such as a GPS, radar detector or anything like that. On this thing it’s just rider and machine, pure passion and the open road, all for $12 respectively $13 grand.
Displaying plenty of chrome, the revitalized 2007 FXDC Dyna Super Glide Custom is a bold and beautiful motorcycle. In addition to its chrome features, the Super Glide Custom has a long and low profile, including a low-slung, two-up ribbed seat. A mini-pullback handlebar sits above a Fat Bob fuel tank with FXDWG-style tank-mounted speedometer and ignition console.
Inspiration straight from the street takes the FXDWG Dyna Wide Glide to the edge of the factory custom category. The new Twin Cam 96 engine powers this truly stretched-out motorcycle for 2007. The Wide Glide is as long and wide as its name suggests, with a 49mm fork raked out to 36 degrees and a 21-inch Chrome, Laced Steel front wheel.
The word "low" describes much more than rider position when it comes to the FXDL Dyna Low Rider. While the 25.8-inch seat height is among the lowest in the Harley-Davidson line, features like mid-mount foot controls, highway pegs and a pullback handlebar also gives the Low Rider its slammed looks and precise handling. The bike’s ergonomics are well-suited to those looking for a comfortable ride, while the new Twin Cam 96 powertrain actually brings the Low Rider to a higher level of performance for 2007.
The 2007 FXDB Dyna Street Bob again proves less can be more taking minimalist styling cues from the post-World War II "bobber" movement and the custom choppers of the 1970s to a modern motorcycle. The Street Bob shuns components like a passenger seat and pegs. A solo seat at 25.8 inches high clearly states that this is a motorcycle for the individualist. Features like a mini ape-hanger handlebar, the classic Fat Bob fuel tank, a wrap-around rear fender and Chrome, Laced Steel wheels combine with the Twin Cam 96 engine for a stylish and powerful ride.
