– Neo-streamline design, gives the Stratoliner a completely distinctive look.

– 113-cubic-inch (1854cc) air-cooled, pushrod 48-degree V-twin has massive looks and performance.

– Special custom-machining of the cooling fin edges gives a jewel-like appearance to the engine as light hits it from different angles.

– 3300 rpm at 75 mph gives some idea of the Stratoliner’s power and cruisability. Maximum torque is reached at only 2500 rpm.

– Aluminum frame is light, rigid and requires few welds for a smooth, clean look. A light, Controlled-
Fill swingarm casting complements the bike’s streamline style.

– With 49.6 percent of its weight carried on the front wheel, the Stratoliner Midnight has the weight distribution of a sportbike instead of the typical cruiser, and that means great handling.

– 46mm fork tubes wearing slant-cut stainless covers serve up an excellent ride and a sweet appearance.

– A tucked-out-of-sight single shock with adjustable spring preload out back provides a smooth ride under varying loads.

– A thick, richly chromed 1.25-inch handlebar carries the Stratoliner Midnight’s switchgear wiring on the inside.

– Flangeless, teardrop fuel tank carries a full 4.5 gallons of fuel.
