Harley-Davidson is celebrating three decades of the iconic Fat Boy with a limited-edition 30th Anniversary model—only 2,500 will be built, each serialized with a number plate on the fuel tank console.

Introduced for the 1990 model year, the “Fat Boy took the look, proportions and silhouette of a 1949 Hydra-Glide motorcycle and completely modernized it for a new generation of riders,” explains Brad Richards, Harley-Davidson Vice President of Styling and Design. “Those riders appreciated our post-war design DNA but also found themselves drawn to the clean simplicity of contemporary industrial design. Each of these elements was captured in the new 2018 version of the Fat Boy model. For this 30th Anniversary model we wanted to create something very special, so we leaned into the popularity of darker finishes and a limited run/serialized strategy to make the bike truly unique and exclusive.”

The Fat Boy 30th Anniversary offers a bold reinterpretation of the original with dark finishes and a single color option, Vivid Black. The cast-aluminum Lakester disc wheels are finished in Satin Black with machined highlights. The blacked-out Milwaukee-Eight 114 powertrain is finished with engine covers in gloss black and subtle bronze-tone lower rocker covers and timer cover script. The exhaust finished in a Black Onyx, a durable physical vapor deposition paint finish that reveals the underlying chrome in bright light. A Vivid Black headlamp nacelle, handlebar and controls as well as a new bronze-tone waterslide Fat Boy tank logo complete the dark look that is distinctive from the regular production model.

Based on the Harley-Davidson Softail platform launched in 2018, the Fat Boy redefines an icon with power and presence. The entire Fat Boy front end is massive and topped with an LED headlamp in a newly shaped nacelle. The Lakester disc aluminum wheels update one of the Fat Boy’s defining styling features, with a 160mm front and a 240mm rear tire that deliver a factory custom look.

Pricing for the 2020 Fat Boy 30th Anniversary starts at $21,949.

  1. I wonder if any rider, not a collector or dealer actually layout hard cash for an HD CVO ? The Road Glide CVO seems a desperate attempt to add gross selling margin to an ageing product.

  2. Nice work Harley Davidson.. (don’t know about the black wheels for myself) but have always loved the Fat Boy..
    I’ve never understood why anyone would buy an “Indian” motorcycle built by a snowmobile mfr. when Harley is building such great motorcycles these days and is the real deal.. And I ride a Honda Shadow😀.. someday…..
