HARLEY-DAVIDSON FAT BOY S Harley-Davidson says of the Fat Boy S: “Presence is about being impressive. Be impressive.” And this iconic motorcycle is certainly the leading man in any movie (and it’s been in a few). Our team were unanimous in their verdict for styling and the MY17 Fat Boy S summed up everything that muscular cruisers were about. If you’re looking for Japanese smoothness and Swiss-watch precision, this is not your bike. You’ll need a shearer’s grip for the clutch and the footrests will scrape on bends, but you’ll have that unmistakeable ‘Hog’ street appeal in an intimidating package that gets you road respect in spades. The big 110-cuber has the most torque (146Nm) of our three test bikes, delivered with a sharp and crackling exhaust note at 4,000 revs, along with effortless acceleration. According to H-D, this is the biggest motor that can fit in the chassis, so Fat Boy S is set to resume its best-selling status in the H-D range it shed to the lightweight, Indian-built Street.
