The Forty-Eight Special, on the other hand, combines throw-back styling trends from the custom-bike scene with the Sportster platform.
The company’s legacy leans on 116 years of building some of the most iconic motorcycles. With fans across the world, it was 10 years ago that the brand established a subsidiary in India.
At the launch event, Sajeev Rajasekharan, Managing Director, Harley-Davidson India said, “Harley-Davidson was one of the earliest entrants in the premium motorcycle category in India. Completing 10 years in India is just the beginning as we remain the cruiser of choice for many riders. With the all new Forty-Eight Special, Harley-Davidson India takes its motorcycle line up to 17 Models”

“Since its inception, the Sportster has offered the perfect combination of size, power and character that makes it appealing to so many different riders,” said Brad Richards, Harley-Davidson V.P. of Styling & Design. “A Sportster is a relatively easy bike to strip down and reinvent. What we’ve done to create the new Forty-Eight Special is what Sportster owners have been doing with their own bikes for generations."
