Like most of the HD this one is also a low ride with under mounted mirrors and a retro styled single seat.

Forty Eight features the Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI) and performance tuning with a wide-ranging torque curve, the Forty-Eight motorcycle carries a robustly responsive ride with even clutch effort.

With HD India’s decision of not raising the price of its two models Superlow and Iron 883 which will be sooner assembled in their new facility at Bawal in Haryana, HD has gained trust amongst bike enthusiasts.
