Harley-Davidson Milwaukee-Eightâ„¢ Engines

We’re proud to introduce the next generation of Harley-Davidson® V-Twin engines to our Touring line: the all-new Milwaukee-Eight™ 107 and Milwaukee-Eight™ 114 engines.

Their iconic look, distinctive sound and massive torque make them instantly recognizable, but the Milwaukee-Eight™ 107 and Milwaukee-Eight™ 114 engines take the Harley-Davidson® V-Twin to a place it’s never been. They’re the most powerful, coolest-running motors we’ve ever built. Smoother, stronger and more durable. With crisper throttle response and truer, cleaner sound. Four valves per cylinder, single chain-driven cam, dual spark plugs, counterbalanced and rubber-mounted.

Developed and proven over countless miles and millions of hours. Every single part is new, engineered to give you more performance and more of the feeling you want from an engine.

New Milwaukee-Eight™ Engines Feature:

  • More Power - Larger displacement, 4-valve heads and higher compression ratio produce up to 11% more torque
  • Quicker Acceleration - 2-3 bike lengths faster from 0-60 mph; 1-2 bike lengths faster from 60-80 mph in top gear
  • Heat Management - Improved rider and passenger comfort, thanks to reduced heat absorption, increased heat rejection and redesigned exhaust system
  • Improved Fit - Thanks to a narrow primary and optimized air cleaner shape
  • Reduced Vibration - New internal single counter-balancer, provides a smoother, more refined feel at idle
  • Richer Exhaust Note - Less mechanical powertrain noise allows more iconic V-Twin rumble due to lighter valves, optimized cover designs and driveline improvements
  • Lower Idle Speed - Creates a better sound and less heat
  • Improved Charging - 50% more output to meet increased touring accessory needs
