The 2017 H-D Fat Boy, lovingly baptized as “Brutal” and transformed by the skilled hands of Nine Hills Motorcycles in Poland, embodies the perfect blend of Harley-Davidson’s timeless legacy and cutting-edge technology.
At its core, the Brutal project embraces the legendary H-D spirit, rooted in a rich history spanning many years, while seamlessly integrating the latest generation powertrain within a contemporary frame. The heart of this beast is the Milwaukee Eight engine, the pinnacle of the series, boasting a formidable 107″ (1,746 cc) displacement.
This engine not only delivers impressive performance but also exhibits impeccable refinement. When combined with the Bassani exhaust system, it produces a sonorous, melodious symphony that resonates beautifully. To enhance its aesthetics, the Milwaukee Eight engine proudly sports old-school EMD covers and a Performance air filter Machine, offering a nostalgic nod to days gone by.
The attention to detail in the Brutal project extends beyond the engine bay. Its exterior exudes an air of opulence, adorned with top-notch leather craftsmanship and designer accessories. This meticulous attention to aesthetics not only ensures an impressive appearance but also transports us to a bygone era, evoking the spirit of classic Harley-Davidson motorcycles.
Despite its naturally robust disposition, the Brutal motorcycle has undergone a transformation that lightens its overall profile. The original rims have made way for sleek, lightweight aluminum, double-spoke rims borrowed from the FXBR model. The rear wheel now accommodates a substantial 260/40/18 tire, while the front flaunts a sporty 120/70/21.
The rear fender, sourced from Rick’s in Germany, seamlessly integrates with the overall design, and the front fender is a testament to the craftsmanship of Nine Hills Motorcycles.
The suspension is no ordinary affair, as it features adjustable pneumatics from Thunderbike, ensuring a comfortable and customizable riding experience.
To add a final touch of finesse, a Kuryakyn spoiler discreetly conceals the radiator, while a meticulously crafted handlebar enhances the rider’s control and comfort.
The crowning jewel of this masterpiece is the exclusive airbrush painting, which not only captures the essence of modernity but also pays homage to the enduring values of the Harley-Davidson brand.
In the Brutal project, tradition meets innovation, and history is woven into every detail, resulting in a motorcycle that embodies the essence of Harley-Davidson while embracing the best of contemporary engineering. It’s a true testament to the artistry and craftsmanship of Nine Hills Motorcycles and a stunning tribute to the H-D Fat Boy of 2017.
