Harley- Davidson has unveiled the new Milwaukee-Eight engine series. The new Milwaukee-Eight engine series will be offered in two displacements -1,750cc and 1,870cc. These displacements will be seen in the 2017 touring and trike models. This is for the eighth time in the history of Harley-Davidson that they have redesigned the classic V-twin engine.
The technical specification of both the engines have not been revealed by the company. It is said that the Milwaukee-Eight engine will produce 10% more torque than the ongoing V-twin engines. This will help the rider to accelerate easily in both city and highways. The new engine series gets a 4-valve cylinder head, which improves the intake and exhaust flow by up to 50%. According to the company, the dual spark plugs for each cylinder will produce better combustion and the single-chain drive cam shaft is lighter, less complex and produces lesser noise.
In addition to the Milwaukee-Eight series engine, the 2017 touring models will also get a new suspension system at both the ends. The new suspension is equipped with a 49mm fork with dual bending fork technology. This will help in removing the harshness and control at low speeds, the company claims.
Harley-Davidson Milwaukee-Engine will be seen three variants-
The Milwaukee-Eight 107 (1750cc) with oil-cooled cylinder heads will be seen in Street Glide/ Street Glide Special, Road Glide/ Road Glide Specials, Electra Glide Ultra Classic, Road King and Free wheelers Trike models.
The Harley-Davidson twin-cooled Milwaukee- Eight 107 ( 1750cc) which features liquid-cooled cylinder heads and will make its way to Ultra Limited/ Ultra limited, Road Glide and Tri Glide Ultra models.
The twin cooled Milwaukee-Eight 104 (1870cc) with liquid cooled cylinder heads will be offered in CVO Limited and CVO Street Glide range.
