Iconic American motorcycle company Harley-Davidson has gone ahead and unveiled its latest and greatest American V-twin engine, a high-tech contraption that is designed to help bikers get the absolute most out of their machines in the way of maximized power, boosted torque and more efficient heat dispersion, resulting in all-round performance improvements.
This ninth generation V-twin engine is dubbed the Milwaukee Eight, and it's noteworthy for the manner in which it effectively deals with heating. It is also designed to offer significantly smoother gas flow, and is fitted with special rubber components that help keep vibration down. The engine even takes into account the sound of the exhaust, which is made cleaner by the removal of other mechanically generated noises.
This engine is a great example of engineering being informed by a brand's performance goals and aesthetic demands.
