Features and Benefits
Project RUSHMORE - Engine
As every rider knows, the engine is at the heartof the experience of riding a motorcycle. The amount of torque and horsepower itdelivers over the RPM range is in direct proportion to the feeling it gives youwhen you roll on the throttle. We know what riders want from a motorcycle enginebecause we’ve been building them for 110 years. Project RUSHMORE gave us theopportunity to dial it in just right. We conducted thousands of road tests withreal riders giving us feedback to build the next iteration of the legendaryHarley-Davidson® engine. The consensus was: We want more. More low-end torque,more passing power, more perfection in the tone of the exhaust note, more of thefeeling we ride a motorcycle for. So we built the engines that deliver it. We’reproud to unveil the next level of Harley-Davidson® V-Twin engine. And prove onceand for all, the customer is always right.Pure Harley-Davidson Styling
Feast your eyes on the Twin Cam 103™ engine andthere's no mistaking its roots. This is authentic Harley-Davidson style throughand through with an attention to detail you won't find from any other motorcyclecompany. Black powder-coated cylinders and cylinder heads with machined coolingfin tips are topped off with chrome rocker covers, while chrome pushrodshighlight the iconic V-Twin. It's a jewel machined out of metal. Pure. Drippingwith power. From the classic edge of the cooling fins to the clean lines ofcases and covers—the Twin Cam 103™ engine makes an ironclad statement to holdingon to what's right and staying true to what satisfies the rider.Six-Speed Cruise Drive® Transmission
You want a ride that rumbles—not begs formercy—when you lean on it a little. The Six-Speed Cruise Drive® transmissionprovides smooth, quiet shifting and reduces engine speed on the highway, so youget a better match between engine turnover and road speed. It's a rare ride whena bike responds like this, and a low growl goes a long way when you're openingup the road ahead.Twin Cam 103™ Engine Heritage
The knowledge of what makes an engine truly movea rider runs deep at The Motor Company, and it was put to good use when wecreated the Twin Cam 103™ engine. We worked to perfect every cubic inch, pushingdesign and technology forward. And we did it all without compromising one bit ofHarley-Davidson's unique styling. Evolved, yet carrying on the legacy of theFlathead, Knucklehead, Panhead, Shovelhead, Evolution®, Twin Cam 88® and TwinCam 96™ engines that came before. The performance and durability are a directresult of the untold miles logged on the V-Twin since 1909, and the proudheritage that comes from a century's worth of commitment to life on two (orthree) wheels.Twin Cam 103™ Engine Innovation
Fire up the air-cooled, rubber-mounted Twin Cam103™ engine and feel the low-end torque unleashed for a smooth ride. Thanks tothe lightweight piston design, delivery of the added power is more refined thanever. Then put your foot on the shifter and feel how the engine and Six-SpeedCruise Drive® transmission were designed to work together. Six speeds. A strongdriveline and strong internal parts. Low routine maintenance. And a low cruisingrpm couldn't feel better.Twin-Cooled High Output Twin Cam 103® Engine
If you started in 1909 with the very firstHarley-Davidson V-Twin engine and worked your way up through every engine, everyinnovation, every improvement, every ride, every durability test in all thoseyears and countless miles since, you arrive at the Twin Cooled High Output TwinCam 103™ engine. This is the top of the line. 103 cubic inches of air andprecision cooled Harley-Davidson® power. Twin cooling cools the heads around theexhaust ports to deliver at or near peak performance under all operatingconditions and temperatures. Higher compression ratio increases efficiency andhorsepower. There’s a new airbox for increased airflow and a new cam to optimizelow-end torque. It’s got the fastest 60 to 80 mph 5th gear roll on in thehistory of Harley-Davidson. Which means it’s got the most passing power in thehistory of Harley-Davidson. On top of all that, it puts less heat on the riderand passenger on scorching days and in stop and go traffic.Project RUSHMORE - Infotainment

We stiffened up thefront end, increased the fork diameter to 49mm and added new steel ballbearings, with lubricant contained inside to keep contaminants out fordurability. The responsiveness is dialed in. Plus a steering damper controlsfeedback from the road. So when you're out with your bagger buddies, you'll stayright at the front of the packThree-Wheel Frame Design

It’s hard to enjoy the ride or keep your eyesfocused on what’s coming down the road when you’re fussing and bothering withthe switches on your handlebar. So we’ve worked over the hand controls on ournew touring bikes with as much passion as we’ve worked over our new engine. Wemade the shape more ergonomic and located and angled them to fall right underyour thumbs. We’ve added left-hand cruise for easy activation, new toggleswitches to control infotainment functions, an easily locatable trigger switchto control and scan through functional readouts.

When the rear brake is appliedthe system also applies the front brake for maximum stopping power. However, thefront brake is independent so you can use it without applying and brake to therear.

Thefinishing touch – bullet turn signals. Sleek and modern, yet a timeless classic.Project RUSHMORE - Comfort
We dialed in the comfort of our machines the hardway: over thousands of miles in all kinds of riding conditions on every kind ofstreet, road and highway ever laid down in pavement. Experienced riders andpassengers putting in long hours in the saddle and giving us feedback on everyaspect that contributes to comfort on the road. Airflow, heat management,passenger space, back rests, seat textures, leg room and hand controls all wentunder the hard microscope of the road and got tested and re-tested by realriders and worked and re-worked by us until we were satisfied we had built themost comfortable machines on the road. We all want to go farther, and when youand your passenger are more comfortable in the saddle, you can.Full-Length Footboards & Toe/Heel Gear Shifts
Your boots were made for riding—any way you seefit. Our full-length footboards boast a time-tested, tried-and-true design andrubber isolation for a comfortable ride, while the height-adjustable passengerboards add another level of customizable comfort for your riding partner.

Summer rides just got morecomfortable.Wide Set Handlebar
Classic style and maximum comfort. That's theperfect balance of the wide set handlebars that come standard on the Tri Glide®Ultra model.

Durable stainless steel insures the structural rigidityyou expect from a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle with the deep, lustrous finish youdesire.
New Fairing Design Reduces Head Buffeting
This is what the science of cheating the windinvolves at Harley-Davidson now: Fluid mechanics, algorithms, high-speed supercomputers and thousands upon thousands of wind-tunnel tests with riders in thesaddle telling us how it feels. And that’s before we take it out on the road forthousands of miles of real world wind gusts and every form of rain a cloud canspit out. The result: a brand new take on the classic Batwing fairing thatdelivers smoother air flow and reduced head buffeting. Most of it thanks to thepressure-equalizing duct on the front. It opens and closes with one touch of abutton. The feeling of being in the wind just got even better.Newly Designed Back and Arm Rests
If you really want to know what makes a passengercomfortable, you start by asking people who’ve seen a good part of the worldfrom the back of a bike. You run thousands of miles of road tests in heat, cold,sun, and rain. You use their input to perfect the height, the width, the shape,the contour, the texture of the leather, the lumbar support. You installcontrols that can be easily reached and operated with one hand. What you end upwith is the back and arm rests you’re looking at right here. Passengers lovethem like they’re their own babies, because in a manner of speaking, they are.Standard Cruise Control
Installing cruise control is standard operatingprocedure on the new touring models because riding long stretches of unbrokenhighway is standard operating procedure among touring riders. Electronicthrottle control means no cable cluttering up your handlebar. And the switchesare placed where you can easily dial in your speed with your left thumb, givethe wrist a break, and keep hauling on down the road.

Casein point: this electric reverse puts convenient control at your fingertips, forconfident, easy movement for parking, loading, close-quarters maneuvering, orany situation where only going one way is not an option.One Touch Design Philosophy
Here’s the rule we laid down for everycompartment cover and saddlebag lid on our touring line: if it doesn’t open withthe single touch of a button or one hand, while wearing gloves, it doesn’t go onthe motorcycle. Because in all our conversations with all the riders we talkedto over the eight years we were rebuilding these motorcycles from the ground up,we didn’t encounter a single individual who wanted to have to put something onthe ground before he could store it in a saddlebag.New Tour-Pak® Design
The new Tour-Pak® luggage carrier sports asleeker new look, but it didn’t come at the expense of storage space.
