HD FXDB Street Bob
Here come the 12 bikes of the Harley Davidson from the five of its families to make a mark and set the Indian roads afire. New Delhi, Mumbai, Chandigarh, Bangalore and Hyderabad are the chosen cities to house the Harley-Davidson company's dealership counters. The bookings for these bikes would begin around April 2010 and they'd be delivered to customers by June.
HD FXDB Street Bob is from the Dyna breed of Harleys, and the Street Bob has borrowed some part of its styling from the post World War II bobber design or the custom choppers of the 1970's. And the solo seat with no foot pegs for the passenger is an indication that you can go single with the Street Bob.
