American motorcycle manufacturer Harley-Davidson has had seven different engines till date in its 100 year manufacturing history. Now, the iconic motorcycle brand could introduce its eighth engine, called the '107 Milwaukee Eight'.
Pictures are all over the net of a Harley-Davidson sporting the '107 Milwaukee Eight' badge on the motorcycle's air filter housing. This could very well be the new engine the American company has in mind to launch this September, for its 2017 range of motorcycles.
The '107' marking plainly translates to the engine's cubic capacity (CC), which is 1,753cc, while the 'Milwaukee' badge obviously refers to the place where these motorcycles are built. The 'Eight' could refer to the bike manufacturer's new head, which features four valves each.
The new '107 Milwaukee Eight' engine could power one of cruisers made by Harley-Davidson. There are further rumours that suggest that Harley-Davidson's Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) unit is working on 1,917 cc and 1,966cc engines as well.
So if the above mentioned engines are being launched around the corner, expect India to receive them too, as Harley-Davidsons have got enough fan following here.
