ALL-NEW MILWAUKEE-EIGHT 107 ENGINE
At the heart of the Harley-Davidson® touring line this year, you find the most powerful, coolest-running engines we’ve ever built. The Milwaukee-Eight™ 107 V-Twin is smoother, stronger and durable. With crisper throttle response and truer, cleaner sound. Four valves per cylinder, single chain-driven cam, dual spark plugs, counter-balanced and rubber mounted. Developed and proven over countless miles and millions of hours. Not a single mechanical part remains from the Twin Cam engine that preceded them. Today, it’s a whole new ride.
MILWAUKEE-EIGHT 107 ENGINE OVERVIEW
Here are eight ways the new Milwaukee-Eight™ 107 engine gives you a better ride*:
More Power- Bigger cylinders, four-valve cylinder heads and dual spark plugs deliver 10% more torque and more power throughout the rev range with no net weight gain.
Better Fuel Economy**- The power comes with improved fuel economy to give you more out of every tank of gas.
Heat Management- Precision oil or water cooling for cooler running and consistent performance, from stop-and-go traffic to highway speeds.
More Passenger Comfort- Positions for the rear exhaust pipe and catalytic converters provide a more comfortable ride.
More Charging Power- A charging system with 50% more power at idle to make easy work of the demands modern touring features put on an electrical system.
Smoother Running- The counter-balancing system, rubber mounts, lower idle speed and dual knock sensors for more precise timing control and smoother running from idle to top gear.
Less Maintenance-The valve train requires no adjustment no matter how many years or miles you ride.
Narrow Primary- The narrower primary drive gives your left foot a straighter, easier reach to the ground, for an easier lift off and more control at stoplights.
