There's big news for touring riders this year. And by big, we're talking about the displacement of the 114-cubic-inch Milwaukee Eight engine that comes in the Ultra Limited, Ultra Limited Low, Road Glide Ultra, Road Glide Special, Street Glide Special and Road King Special models this year. It gives you up to 123 ft. lbs. of peak torque, depending on the model.8A9484_AM_19GAP_181261_V4_FN (2)That's a significant increase over the Milwaukee-Eight 107 engine. And that means quicker 0-to-60 acceleration, quicker 60-to-80 fifth-gear roll on. In the real world, that gives you more on-ramp power to gain speed and merge with freeway traffic, more power to pull away from traffic, and faster passing. You get all that and the pride that comes from the most displacement in standard H-D Touring models.
