Wow this year is all about the new Milwaukee-Eight™ Big Twin 8 valve engine. Fitted only to the touring range for this year, we can see this becoming the new benchmark for power and efficiency.

More power, better cooling, reduced vibration, better fuel economy, a better exhaust note, and a slimmer overall design.

This is a clean sheet design that actually has three variants based around the same engine. There are two 1745cc ( motors and they’re joined by a larger, higher-performance 1870cc (, which is used exclusively in the CVO custom specials.

Scott Miller, Harley’s Vice-President of Styling and Product Development Strategy, said: “These are the most powerful, most responsive and most comfortable Touring motorcycles ever offered by Harley-Davidson.”

Chief Powertrain Engineer Alex Bozmoski added: “While respecting the essential Big Twin character, we’ve created an all-new motor. Every aspect of performance, durability and styling has been improved as a direct response to the voice of Harley-Davidson customers around the world.”
