Vehicle Overview
Forty Eight is a 1202cc, twin cylinder motorcycle that produces 60 BHP at 5500 rpm and 96 Nm at 3500 rpm. It comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox and claims a top speed of just 177 kmph. The bulky wheels and tough attitude of the Forty Eight makes it one of the most desired Harley bike in the country. The only problem with its design is its fuel tank which looks perfectly good but holds just 7.9 liters of fuel tank. HD Forty Eight rivals Honda Fury, Indian Scout Sixty and other bikes around its price segment.NA
