Milwaukee-Eight 114 Power

Each Special model is powered by the Milwaukee-Eight 114 V-Twin engine, the most displacement and power offered from the factory for Harley-Davidson Touring model motorcycles. In the Touring chassis, the rubber-mounted and counter-balanced Milwaukee-Eight 114 engine delivers inspiring performance and classic Harley-Davidson look-sound-feel.

  • Displacement: 114 cu in (1,868 cc)
  • Compression Ratio: 10.5:1
  • Torque: 118 ft. lb. @ 3250 RPM
  • Four valve cylinder heads (two exhaust and two intake valves per head, eight total); improved airflow through the engine contributes to power output.
  • Dual spark plugs for more complete combustion of the air/fuel charge and maximized power and efficiency.
  • Single camshaft reduces mechanical noise so a richer exhaust tone can predominate.
  • Advanced cylinder head design, dual knock sensors, and precision cooling allow a higher compression ratio for increased torque output and strong acceleration.
  • V-Twin design with 45-degree cylinder angle maintains classic Harley-Davidson look-sound-feel.
  • 6-Speed Cruise Drive transmission reduces engine RPM at highway speeds to enhance fuel economy and rider comfort.
  • New Ventilator high-performance air cleaner with a washable filter element improves air flow to the engine and adds performance styling.

 

Harley-Davidson Touring Chassis

The Harley-Davidson Touring frame is designed for the long haul, with a rigid backbone design to sustain the weight of passengers and luggage and to support current engine power.

  • Front suspension with dual bending valve internal technology for linear damping performance and a smooth ride.
  • Emulsion technology rear shocks are calibrated for touring and feature a single-knob pre-load adjustment that does not require tools or maintenance.
  • Lowered rear suspension gives Special models a slammed stance.
  • Prodigy cast-aluminum wheels (19-inch front, 18-inch rear) are exclusive to Special models.
  • Standard Reflex™ Linked Brembo Brakes with ABS (Antilock Braking System) is designed to help prevent the wheels from locking under braking to assist the rider in maintaining control when braking in a straight-line. ABS operates independently on front and rear brakes to help prevent uncontrolled wheel lock in urgent situations.
  • Optional RDRS Safety Enhancements (formerly known as RDRS) – A collection of technologies designed to match motorcycle performance to available traction during acceleration, deceleration and braking. Includes linked braking, ABS, traction control, drag-torque slip control, tire pressure monitoring system, and vehicle hold control.
