Oh, and just FYI.... Porsche did not design the Revolution. HD wanted to re-design their tried and true VR1000 motor so they ask Porsche to help them make it more durable and to last a long time. If you have seen "Birth of the V -Rod" on Discovery, you'll see the grueling tests the bike was put through.

How about a DOHC Nova project?

V4

4 valvues per cylinder

Competing against the VFR

That would be nice too.

Porsche design studio has been helping Harley for over 20 years now. The VR1000 was a Porsche design as well.

I bought my Dyna Wide Glide when I was 26 definitley not a geezer, and I still have it. It is definitley not a sportbike but it's still fun to ride. I definitley put a lot into the engine to beef it up but that's part of the fun.

Do I enjoy my Speed triple more? Of course I do but the harley is fun as well.

To each his own.

The Nova project was Porsche's first engine for Harley

It was back in the 80's. They built 2 before shelving it.

The original Nova was a V4 SOHC engine.

If harley can put golf carts like this into mass production, surely they can make a decent liquid cooled sports bike.

First off, that first guy can suck a nut. I have no faith in his information. Other than that, I saw nowhere in any of those articles where it was stated the motor was "designed by Porsche". I could be blind. It simply says Porsche was consulted and that there has been a 20+ year relationship with them.

thats so true, funny stuff

So I left.
i call bs, does that really happen?

Can you not read or have you been sucking too many tail pipe fumes?

From the second link:

"The Revolution Engine, a joint venture between Porsche and Harley, generated major challenges for Willie G. Davidson - the company's head of design. The engine itself was a modular unit, using gear driven (as opposed to chain driven) primaries and requiring a large radiator for cooling purposes. Willie G. managed to integrate these beautifully into the overall design, unlike much of the competition where the radiator is simply hung on the front of the bike like an afterthought.
There are many good things (and one bad thing) to say about the 1130 cc) Revolution Engine."

From the third:

"It has been no big secret that Harley has consulted with Porsche for nearly twenty years, first with the never-marketed Nova V-4 project in the '80s, then with the VR1000 Superbike project in the '90s. So when it came time to provide stallions for the new power cruiser, it was natural they'd seek Porsche again. The injection system hails from France, the ignition from Italy, but a lot of the internal hard parts are German, such as the Mahle pistons, which have also been used since the Evolution Big Twin days of the mid '80s."

From the fourth link:

"As widely reported, the engine was indeed developed in cooperation with Porsche, and many of the motor's components bear "Made in Germany" markings."

Yes it did. Out here off Nichol Sawmill.

I was riding my Honda 954; I was wearing slacks, a button up and had my laptop in my backpack.

I guess they didn't think I fit in.

Yup... "joint-venture" and "consulted"

Please show me were it says the motor was "designed by Porsche"? I can read... can you comprehend?
