hehe as they say - the bike is merely a down payment on the parts...


I was rather hoping they'd announce a Revo powered bagger this year, but it looks like they're going to continue with the same-ole, same-ole ...

The FLTRs are affectionately known as "Fuglies".

Ever ridden one?

Every time I ride with my mom, I make sure at least once at a stop to let her know she needs to put it in the shop, the motor sure does shake a lot.

I notice that with everyone I know that has that style...its got to be the motor mounts, because I have the same engine and mine doesn't vibrate like that.

Funny thing about that...

The vibration is designed in. When HD came out with the Twin-Cam, it initially had no vibration. The focus groups hated it. So, HD slightly screwed with it so it has a vibration at idle. Get even 200rpm off idle and it goes away.

What irritates the out of me with HD is, they have the ability to make a truly amazing bike, but they choose not to. Just imagine a stroked Revolution VRod motor in the new touring chassis - but with the frame made of aluminum, not steel. You'd have a 150hp/125ft-lb water-cooled v-twin on in 700lb touring bike that would move like a raped ape and handle like a dream.

It sure isn't cost or engineering knowledge keeping them from doing it.

No you dont have the same engine. You've got the Twin-Cam B. Its rigid mounted to the frame and has internal balance shafts. Slightly heavier, slightly less power.

The Twin-Cam A is rubber-mounted, no balance shafts, and designed to vibrate.

It goes to show you that their demographics is not into performance... poser? maybe?

I keed, I keed... not really

BTW I grew up around Harley's my whole life and I actually had my dad's other bike, 52' Panhead, for a couple of months as a first bike in highschool.

Go ride a stock Road King and then jump on a CVo Road King.... world of difference.

They are expensive but man they are nice!

I agree, I don't know why they hold back the technology. I have seen what a hopped up harley motor can do. The price would still be more than I want to pay, but it would be more enticing nonetheless. I understand the vibration, but being a bike rider it is just easy to pick on them about it.

Meh - I'm just not impressed with the CVOs. For what you spend for them, they should be the absolute top of their class, but at the end of the day, they're just a gussied-up v-twin touring bike.
