The Harley-Davidson Fat Boy has been a staple of H-D’s Softail cruiser lineup since debuting 30 years ago in 1990. The Fat Boy 114 was added to the roster as part of Harley’s 2018 line, where it got a major performance boost from the addition of the 1,868cc Milwaukee-Eight 114 V-twin.

The 2020 Fat Boy 114 base platform remains unchanged for 2020, but Harley-Davidson did celebrate the model’s 30th anniversary with a blacked-out limited-edition model slated for mid-year release. Harley’s major Softail revamp in 2018 saw improvements to the chassis, braking packages, and engines of the model line. The Fat Boy 114 benefited from these updates, but our tester still felt the model lacked cornering capability owing to its heft and low lean angle capacity. It remains an iconic model however, retaining hallmark features such as the solid wheels and beefy front end design that have made it one of Harley’s most instantly recognizable motorcycles.
