The year 2019 has been quite an eventful one in terms of celebrity cars of India. A lot of new high-end cars were bought by Bollywood starts since the start of this year, though most of them were SUVs. Now though, well-known and talented actor Rajkummar Rao has become the latest B-town celebrity to bring home an exotic set of wheels this year. The actor bought a spanking new Harley-Davidson Fat Bob motorcycle this week. Harley Davidson India’s official social media accounts shared images of the actor sitting atop the Fat Bob.
As seen in the images here, Rajkumar Rao chose the all-black paint job for his latest ride. The ex-showroom price of the Harley-Davidson Fat Bob is 14.69 lakhs in Delhi, which makes it quite an expensive bike. This 2019 model is one of the most intimidating and mean-looking bikes in Harley’s Indian lineup. The capsule-shaped horizontally laid all-LED headlamp is one of its distinguishing design features. Talking about the engine that powers this beast, a Milwaukee-Eight 107 V-Twin engine is mounted on the bike and it belts out 145 Nm of peak torque.
Harley Davidson has not officially revealed the horsepower output of this 1,868cc, air-cooled, 45-degree V-twin engine equipped on the Fat Bob. However, it churns out around 80 Bhp of power according to a few independent dyno tests. The Fat Bob is considered to be a power cruiser, a term which was made popular by the Ducati Diavel and Yamaha V-Max bikes. The current generation Fat Bob was first launched in 2017 as a part of the Softail family. The earlier generation models of this bike were included in the Dyna family.
The Fat-Bob weighs a massive 309 kg in total, which is pretty hefty to say the least. However, despite all the bulk this bike carries, it is quite an enjoyable bike to ride. Compared to the older generation model, this one has a much stiffer and lighter frame. The bike runs on 150 mm tires upfront and 180 mm tires at the rear which is the fattest tire combination in Harley Davidson’s Indian model lineup. Other notable features on the bike include the stylish upswept exhaust pipes with custom magnesium finish, teardrop fuel tank, contoured seat, and straight wide handlebar. Suspension duties are handled by an upside sown fork on the fornt and single sping shock at the rear. Disc brakes with dual-channel ABS at both the ends take care of the braking duties on this bike.
Now that Rajkumar Rao has bought the bike, we expect him to be seen riding this beast on the roads of Mumbai soon. The actor has a decent garage but he did not own any superbike to date. This one is definitely a classy upgrade then.
