Harley Davidson Fat Bob’s 6-speed gearbox has big gear ratios and can produce a maximum of 65 horsepower @ 5500 rpm. The air-cooled, air-cooled 1745cc Milwaukee-Eight 107 V-twin engine on the 2022 Fat Bob generates 144Nm @ 3000rpm.
An 1133 cc (69 ci) liquid-cooled V-twin engine powers the Indian Scout Bobber, producing a peak torque of 98 Nm (72 lb-ft) at 5900 rpm and 100 horsepower (75 kW) at 7-8000 rpm. Cruise control is a possibility because of the ride’s inherent ride-by-wire throttle and standard ABS.
The Fat Bob delivers a mileage of around 18 to 20 kmpl, whereas the Scout Bobber offers 25 kmpl, more than the Fat Bob.
The presence of a large LED headlamp that is chrome-encased gives the front a cleaner and more commanding appearance. The turn indicators being merged into the brake lights has made the back appear cleaner than it did previously.
Additionally, the Scout Bobber has a large radiator that helps control engine temperature even in stifling traffic. It is primarily straight and polished.
The price of the Harley Davidson Fat Bob is between Rs 18,00,000 to Rs 19,00,000, and the price of the Indian Scout Bobber starts from Rs 13,00,000.
Even if the Fat Bob’s motor performance isn’t comparable, our testers didn’t mind at all. From just off idle until it tapers off north of 4000 rpm, the ‘Bob’s Twin Cam 103 engine produces a seamless flow of power. In contrast to the jerkier Triumph, the power delivery is much smoother, with practically no driveline lash.
The Storm’s engine performed incredibly well on wide roads. In addition to being more powerful, the 1700cc engine also boasts a more aggressive power delivery. Others could exploit the bike’s enormous bottom-end power to shift into top gear at less than 50 mph and cruise, while some testers couldn’t understand why there was even a 6th gear.
Unlike the Harley, you never need to shift down a gear to pass—unless you want to push your acceleration even farther.
Both the bikes, the Fat Bob and the Triumph Thunderbird Storm, deliver an average mileage between 18 to 20 kmpl.
Due to the Fat Bob’s massive 16-inch front tyre and 49mm fork, which give it a very aggressive appearance and larger tread blocks than some adventure bikes, the Bob stands out from other Dynas and is distinguished from them by its larger tread blocks.
A floating brake rotor, black springs, and shocks are highlighted by the black wheels, which significantly alter the appearance even with only the paint. There are just two types of black (matte and gloss), and no other hues are available.
The price of the Harley Davidson Fat Bob is between Rs 18,00,000 to Rs 19,00,000, and the price of the Triumph Thunderbird Storm starts from Rs 14,50,000.
The 6-speed gearbox offers large gear ratios and maximum horsepower output of 65 at 5500 rpm. The 2022 Fat Bob’s air-cooled, air-cooled 1745cc Milwaukee-Eight 107 V-twin engine produces 144Nm @ 3000rpm.
The Rocket 3 has a brand-new 2458cc engine, which is more powerful, smoother, and cleaner, firmer, and smaller. Huge 110.2mm pistons outperform the old 101.6mm ones, and a substantially smaller stroke (down from 94.3 to 85.9mm) enables Triumph to build a shorter engine.
Harley’s Fat Bob delivers a mileage of 18 to 20 kmpl, and the Triumph Rocket 3 offers a mileage between 13 to 15 kmpl.
The Bob distinguishes itself from the Triumph Rocket 3 due to its enormous 16-inch front tyre and 49mm fork, which give it a more aggressive appearance and more giant tread blocks than comparable adventure motorcycles.
The Triumph Rocket 3 is currently a true corner eater. Turning is simple, maintaining a line in the middle of the corner requires minimal inside bar pressure, and flick-flacking from a complete left to right lean is astonishingly accurate. Showa provides the suspension, which consists of 47mm adjustable upside-down forks up front and an adjustable monoshock that keeps an eye on the shaft drive.
Harley Davidson Fat Bob costs between Rs 18,00,000 to Rs 19,00,000 and the Triumph Rocket 3 costs around Rs 19,00,000.
