I am also not able to fathom such a long delivery period. the other instances of booking vs delivery does not seem to range between two to four weeks.
One more interesting thing to note is that the vehicle is coming through CKD route and since there is a negligible change in 2016 vs 2017 lineup, I am pretty sure most of the parts could be used from the existing old kit.

Usually these bikes come in a complete kit - as in all the parts for one bike come in one pack, so the commonality won't really make a big difference.

You had mentioned two dealers in your city, have both given you the same delivery time?

Yes, Olive Gold 2017 model is having almost same expected delivery date however I am expecting an early arrival. After going through all the posts, I have not seen any delivery going beyond 4 weeks. Second, I have already given the advance to Lucknow dealer so there is no backing now

I was keenly observing Harley lineup and there is one interesting stuff to notice. If you closely observe that all models below Fat boy like Dyna, Sportster and Street family have designs which are somewhat unique in themselves. Their form factor are either sports, bobber, chopper or conventional types but if you see all models above Fat boy like Touring or CVO except Nightrod ( Sports bike) they all are built on the same Fat boy pattern. It is highly customized to give it a Road king, Street Glide, Road glide or CVO effect (except Milwaukee engine). I believe that with some modification a Fat boy can be easily converted in any of the above mentioned ones.

Sales executive has also suggested to look for Olive Gold color in the new 2017 lineup but I think Fat boy looks good in black only.
Greetings to you,
I own a 2015 XL883L, the decision to choose the right colour is very important. The Olive Gold colour is a exclusive choice. Most of the bike frame is black. Black looks Great inside the showroom under the multi reflector lights.
But very dull and dusty on the road.
This is my personal opinion, Of course. Welcome to the family.
