2012 Harley Davidson Dyna Fat Bob

Posted on by  

The 2014 Harley Davidson Dyna Fat Bob was revealed. The motorcycle comes with a set of tasty style features that help it compete with success against any other motorcycle in its class. Among them you’ll find blacked out finishes, new graphics, blunt cut mufflers and a trimmed rear fender.

For 2014 the Harley Davidson Dyna Fat Bob has also received a new two up seat which is a bit more comfortable than the previous model.

At the heart of this beauty lies Harley-Davidson’s Twin Cam 103 engine with black powder-coated heads and cylinders are highlighted by machined cooling fin tips and chrome rocker covers. Fire up the engine and it will reward you with a peak torque of 98.8 ft-lb at 3,500 rpm. The engine is fed by a 5 gallons fuel tank and its power is kept in leash by a six-speed cruise drive transmission.

Blacked Out Finishes
The 2014 Fat Bob 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.

Blacked Out Twin Cam 96™ 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 2014 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.

New Diagonal Tank Graphics
In a world of more, more, more, sometimes just enough is all you really need. The new 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. New 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. The new 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.

Trimmed 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 2014 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.

New Two Up Seat
You spend a lot of time in the saddle, so we spent a lot of time designing a better one. The new two-up seat is sleek and ergonomically sculpted to fit as comfortably as your leather jacket. And 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 new friend along the way.

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.

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 that 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.

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®, 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™. The air cooled Twin Cam 103™ Harley Davidson® 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.

Technology

Harley Davidson Dyna Fat Bob

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 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 details 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. Its components are tastefully hidden within the wheel hub, so you’ll still 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.

Handling

Harley Davidson Dyna Fat Bob

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.

Comfort

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.
