Those attending the EICMA 2010 show in person or on-line can enjoy the Harley Davidson Forty-Eight factory custom bike. The motorcycle is showcased in a Mirage Orange Pearl color scheme that really makes it stand out, accentuating its lines.

The two-wheeled creation is powered by a black 1200 Evolution V-Twin engine that comes with Electronic Sequencial Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI). The company’s engineers have word hard to tune the engine in order to offer it a broad torque curve.

Some of the features that really caught our eye are the low profile handelbar, the under-mounted mirrors that offer it an original look, as well as the chopped front fender that is mounted on the fork brace. We also like the 16-inch wheels that use a Laced design.

The motorbike offers a “bulldog shoulders stance”, offering a special look that build on its heritage, offering a custom, rugged appearance.

Here is the full list of features for the Forty-Eight:

* Blacked out rubber-mounted Evolution 1200 cc V-Twin engine with polished covers
* Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI)
* Steel 2.1-gallon peanut fuel tank with lightening hole mounting bracket
* One-piece, solo Sportster classic seat
* 26-inch seat height
* Tall and fat 130 mm Dunlop MT90 front tire
* 16-inch Black Steel Laced wheels
* Low profile custom handlebar
* Under-mounted mirrors
* New front forks with wide triple clamps
* Chopped front fender mounted on fork brace with lightening holes
* Blacked components including air cleaner cover, clutch and brake levers and turn signals
* Chopped rear fender
* Stop-turn-tail lights
* Side-mounted license plate
* Two-year factory warranty
* Optional Harley-Davidson Smart Security System
