For any motorcycle name, a new powerhouse is a big deal. For Harley-Davidson whose engines are more famous than the models they power, it’s a momentous undertaking. The new engine is only the ninth in the lineage of the company’s iconic Big Twin engines. Aside from continuing to make the American motorcycle manufacturer competitive, the new engine is a bold move by Harley. Many of their die-hard riders are traditionalists, making any changes to any part of a Harley-Davidson a challenge and the V-Twin is high on that list.
While Clutch and Chrome reported on the new engine when it was announced with specifications, highlights and of course, sexy pictures, we know images can speak volumes. We pulled together official video from Harley-Davidson, added our insight and few more pictures for a video look at the Milwaukee-Eight engine.
