Harley-Davidson is set to launch the 2019 Forty-Eight Special (Sportster) and the Street Glide Special (Tourer) in India on March 14, 2019. Hardware upgrades to the Forty-Eight Special include a Tallboy handlebar, and graphics and badge on the peanut fuel tank are inspired from the 70s. The combination of black and chrome adds to its custom persona. The motorcycle continues to feature a rider-only saddle. The Emulsion rear shock comes with screw pre-load adjuster while at the front are 49 mm telescopic forks.
Mechanical specifications remain unchanged, and the Forty Eight Special uses a 1,202cc, V-twin cylinder, air-cooled Evolution engine that delivers 98.9 Nm of peak torque at 3,500 rpm. Dual-piston calliper on both wheels perform the anchoring tasks.
The 2019 Harley-Davidson Street Glide Special, on the other hand, uses a 1,868cc V-Twin Milwaukee-Eight motor that delivers 165.4 Nm of peak torque that kicks in at as low as 3,000 revs. Enthusiasts who follow American cruisers brands would know that the manufacturers do not disclose the maximum power numbers. Stopping power comes from 4-piston fixed front and rear callipers.
