Media Press Release:

MILWAUKEE (July 9, 2007) – For 2008, Harley-Davidson offers its most diverse line of Sportster models in the 51-year history of legendary XL platform. From the minimalist, retro-chic styling of the XL 1200N Nightster to the affordable performance of the XL 883 Sportster 883 and the glamorous power of the XL 1200C Sportster 1200 Custom, there’s a model to match the desires of any rider.

As the original American hot-rod motorcycle, the 1957 Sportster brought raw-boned aggression from the flat track to the street with an irresistible combination of power and agility. Over more than a half-century, the Sportster has evolved technologically while staying true to its roots, offering riders no-nonsense V-Twin performance and nimble handling in a motorcycle that’s always a cool, fun ride.

All Sportster models are powered by the Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI) XL Evolution V-Twin powertrain, rubber-mounted in the frame to reduce vibration and tuned to deliver a broad powerband for outstanding street performance. The transmission and engine share a common die-cast case. Final drive is via a clean, quiet and durable belt reinforced with carbon fiber. The Harley-Davidson Smart Security System is an available option on all Sportster models.

Media Press Release:

MILWAUKEE (July 9, 2007) – For 2008, Harley-Davidson offers its most diverse line of Sportster models in the 51-year history of legendary XL platform. From the minimalist, retro-chic styling of the XL 1200N Nightster to the affordable performance of the XL 883 Sportster 883 and the glamorous power of the XL 1200C Sportster 1200 Custom, there’s a model to match the desires of any rider.

As the original American hot-rod motorcycle, the 1957 Sportster brought raw-boned aggression from the flat track to the street with an irresistible combination of power and agility. Over more than a half-century, the Sportster has evolved technologically while staying true to its roots, offering riders no-nonsense V-Twin performance and nimble handling in a motorcycle that’s always a cool, fun ride.

All Sportster models are powered by the Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI) XL Evolution V-Twin powertrain, rubber-mounted in the frame to reduce vibration and tuned to deliver a broad powerband for outstanding street performance. The transmission and engine share a common die-cast case. Final drive is via a clean, quiet and durable belt reinforced with carbon fiber. The Harley-Davidson Smart Security System is an available option on all Sportster models.

2008 Harley-Davidson VRSCD/A Night Rod

New Black Five Spoke Cast Aluminum wheels reinforce the dark theme of the VRSCD Night Rod, which features a black powdercoated 125-hp Revolution V-Twin engine with highlighted fins and polished covers, black frame, mirrors, hand controls, and other components. Mid-mount controls and highway pegs offer the rider cruising options.

NEW ON VRSC FOR 2008

1250cc Revolution V-Twin engine: Originally designed for the CVO Screamin’ Eagle V-Rod, bore is increased to 105 mm from 100 mm, boosting displacement from 1130 cc to 1250 cc. This engine is tuned to produce up to 125 hp at 8250 rpm and up to 85 ft-lbs. of torque at 7000. The 60-degree Revolution V-Twin engine is liquid-cooled and features Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI), dual overhead cams, four-valve heads, and a five-speed transmission. The engine is rubber-mounted in hydroformed steel perimeter frame. A steel shell covers the large-volume airbox. A 5-gallon fuel tank is located below the seat on all VRSC models.

Slipper Clutch: All 2008 VRSC models have a new clutch with race-bred “slipper” action that helps mitigate drivetrain strain and rear-wheel lock-up during downshifting. Integral with the new clutch design is an assist feature that reduces clutch-lever effort by more than 20 percent.

Optional ABS: For the first time, each VRSC model is available with optional, factory-installed Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS). Designed to work in conjunction with the high-performance Brembo brakes on all VRSC models, this is the most advanced braking system offered on any power cruiser. ABS is designed to help the rider maintain control during emergency stopping situations, especially those that happen in less than ideal conditions. The components of the Harley-Davidson ABS have been designed and packaged to be virtually invisible, preserving the clean custom styling of the area around the wheels. Unlike many motorcycle ABS, Harley-Davidson ABS is a manual, independent system, meaning the rider maintains full, independent control of how much of each brake is applied.

105th Anniversary Edition: A limited-edition, serialized VRSCAW V-Rod 105th Anniversary Edition will be available in 2008 (see separate release for details on the 105th Anniversary package).

HARLEY-DAVIDSON VRSC PLATFORM MUSCLES UP FOR 2008
1250cc Revolution V-Twin with Slipper Clutch on All Models, ABS Now an Option

MILWAUKEE (July 9, 2007) – The Harley-Davidson family of VRSC premium power cruisers will pack more muscle in 2008. All three VRSC models are powered by the 1250cc Revolution liquid-cooled V-Twin engine, a powertrain originally developed for the Screamin’ Eagle V-Rod and now tuned to crank out up to 125 horsepower and 85 ft.-lbs. of torque. To help harness this new-found power, a new slipper clutch is part of the powertrain. And, for the first time, all VRSC models will be available with optional Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS).

As the only Harley-Davidson platform powered by a liquid-cooled V-Twin engine, the VRSC family offers sleek, drag-bike styling and the performance of high-revving horsepower. A low seat height, stretched-out profile with 36-degree fork angle, wide rear tire and premium components like Brembo triple-disc brakes and 49 mm forks, are characteristics of each VRSC model. These are power cruisers that share the performance and technology legacy of the Screamin’ Eagle / Vance & Hines drag racing team, three-time NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle World Champions.

NEW ON VRSC FOR 2008

Descendant of the original V-Rod that helped launch the power-cruiser segment, the VRSCAW V-Rod rolls on a huge 240 mm rear tire, with forward controls and pull-back welded handlebar. The new 1250cc liquid-cooled Revolution V-Twin engine sends 121 peak horsepower and 84 ft.-lbs. of peak torque to that brawny rear tire in 2008. The Brushed Aluminum Profile Laced front wheel is new for 2008.

2008 Harley-Davidson FLHRSE4 Screamin’ Eagle Road King

2008 Harley-Davidson-CVO-FLHRSE4Screamin'Eagle Road King

2008 Harley-Davidson FLHRSE4 Screamin' Eagle Road King

2008 Harley-Davidson FLHRSE4 Screamin’ Eagle Road King

The Screamin’ Eagle Road King is born into royalty as a Harley-Davidson FLHR Road King, which now includes a six-gallon fuel tank and cruise control, primed for long-distance riding. In addition, the Screamin’ Eagle Road King has the new Harley-Davidson Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) as a standard feature. ABS is designed to help you maintain control during emergency stopping situations, especially those that happen in less than ideal conditions, while the new Isolated Drive System enhances accelerating, cruising and shifting.

The Harley-Davidson CVO program creates limited-production, exclusive motorcycles produced by teams of technicians in special assembly areas at the Harley-Davidson plants in York, Pa., and Kansas City. Approximately 3,150 examples of the 2008 Screamin’ Eagle Road King including 1,800 serialized 105th Anniversary models, will be assembled at the York Vehicle Operations facility. The suggested U.S. retail price for the 2008 Screamin’ Eagle Road King is $29,290 ($29,390 in California). The 105th Anniversary package adds $495.

The Screamin’ Eagle Road King has the largest-displacement Harley-Davidson production engine, the 110-cubic inch (1800cc) Twin Cam 110, a high-performance V-Twin engine delivering 115 ft. lbs. of torque at 3000 rpm. For 2008, the Twin Cam 110 displays a new Granite finish. Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI) is standard, along with a custom oil cooler with chrome cover, and chrome cross-over dual exhaust with four-inch touring mufflers and chrome billet end caps. The engine is joined to the 6-speed Cruise Drive transmission for lower cruising rpm in top gear.

Among the enhancements to the Screamin’ Eagle Road King are a new electronic throttle control technology for adjustment-free riding, revised mirrors and a new riser cover with indicator lights. The new six-gallon Touring fuel tank, which provides outstanding fuel range, is combined with a new console, gasket and granite colored emblem with hammered finish. The custom leather seat, backrests and saddlebags receive a new design, while new trim chrome strips flow with the bike on the side covers.

The chrome-and-rubber Ironside accessories collection includes hand grips, rider footboards, passenger pegs, Mustache engine guard pads, shift pegs and brake pedal pad. A tail lamp in the classic “tombstone” shape remains exclusive to the Screamin’ Eagle Road King. Chrome, Road Winder Forged Aluminum wheels carry 130 mm front and 170mm rear, radial tires. Touring features include electronic cruise control, Mustache Engine Guard with rubber boot pads, an accessory power outlet, and a quick-detachable smoked windscreen.

The Screamin’ Eagle Road King will be offered in three exclusive color combinations: 105th Anniversary Crystal Copper and Black Onyx (serialized models); Twilight Blue and Candy Cobalt with Ghost Flame graphics; and Black Diamond and Silver Dust with Ghost Flame graphics. Frame and swingarm colors are matched with each paint scheme. The Harley-Davidson Smart Security System with Smart Siren, an indoor storage cover with CVO logo, and a commemorative CVO key in a presentation box are also included.

SCREAMIN’ EAGLE ROAD KING RULES THE CUSTOM EMPIRE FOR 2008
Harley-Davidson Crowns its CVO Line with Twin Cam 110 Power and Custom Style

MILWAUKEE (July 9, 2007) – The FLHRSE4 Screamin’ Eagle Road King returns to reign the touring motorcycle realm in 2008 as part of the Harley-Davidson Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) line. This fourth generation in the Screamin’ Eagle Road King family combines an ultimate level of Harley-Davidson styling with a Twin Cam 110 engine, 6-speed Cruise Drive transmission and selected custom accessories, colors and graphics making it a true leader among touring motorcycles.

The Screamin’ Eagle Road King is born into royalty as a Harley-Davidson FLHR Road King, which now includes a six-gallon fuel tank and cruise control, primed for long-distance riding. In addition, the Screamin’ Eagle Road King has the new Harley-Davidson Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) as a standard feature. ABS is designed to help you maintain control during emergency stopping situations, especially those that happen in less than ideal conditions, while the new Isolated Drive System enhances accelerating, cruising and shifting.

The Harley-Davidson CVO program creates limited-production, exclusive motorcycles produced by teams of technicians in special assembly areas at the Harley-Davidson plants in York, Pa., and Kansas City. Approximately 3,150 examples of the 2008 Screamin’ Eagle Road King including 1,800 serialized 105th Anniversary models, will be assembled at the York Vehicle Operations facility. The suggested U.S. retail price for the 2008 Screamin’ Eagle Road King is $29,290 ($29,390 in California). The 105th Anniversary package adds $495.

The Screamin’ Eagle Road King has the largest-displacement Harley-Davidson production engine, the 110-cubic inch (1800cc) Twin Cam 110, a high-performance V-Twin engine delivering 115 ft. lbs. of torque at 3000 rpm. For 2008, the Twin Cam 110 displays a new Granite finish. Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI) is standard, along with a custom oil cooler with chrome cover, and chrome cross-over dual exhaust with four-inch touring mufflers and chrome billet end caps. The engine is joined to the 6-speed Cruise Drive transmission for lower cruising rpm in top gear.

Among the enhancements to the Screamin’ Eagle Road King are a new electronic throttle control technology for adjustment-free riding, revised mirrors and a new riser cover with indicator lights. The new six-gallon Touring fuel tank, which provides outstanding fuel range, is combined with a new console, gasket and granite colored emblem with hammered finish. The custom leather seat, backrests and saddlebags receive a new design, while new trim chrome strips flow with the bike on the side covers.

The chrome-and-rubber Ironside accessories collection includes hand grips, rider footboards, passenger pegs, Mustache engine guard pads, shift pegs and brake pedal pad. A tail lamp in the classic “tombstone” shape remains exclusive to the Screamin’ Eagle Road King. Chrome, Road Winder Forged Aluminum wheels carry 130 mm front and 170mm rear, radial tires. Touring features include electronic cruise control, Mustache Engine Guard with rubber boot pads, an accessory power outlet, and a quick-detachable smoked windscreen.

The Screamin’ Eagle Road King will be offered in three exclusive color combinations: 105th Anniversary Crystal Copper and Black Onyx (serialized models); Twilight Blue and Candy Cobalt with Ghost Flame graphics; and Black Diamond and Silver Dust with Ghost Flame graphics. Frame and swingarm colors are matched with each paint scheme. The Harley-Davidson Smart Security System with Smart Siren, an indoor storage cover with CVO logo, and a commemorative CVO key in a presentation box are also included.

2008 Harley-Davidson VRSCAW/A V-Rod

Descendant of the original V-Rod that helped launch the power-cruiser segment, the VRSCAW V-Rod rolls on a huge 240 mm rear tire, with forward controls and pull-back welded handlebar. The new 1250cc liquid-cooled Revolution V-Twin engine sends 121 peak horsepower and 84 ft.-lbs. of peak torque to that brawny rear tire in 2008. The Brushed Aluminum Profile Laced front wheel is new for 2008.

NEW ON VRSC FOR 2008

1250cc Revolution V-Twin engine: Originally designed for the CVO Screamin’ Eagle V-Rod, bore is increased to 105 mm from 100 mm, boosting displacement from 1130 cc to 1250 cc. This engine is tuned to produce up to 125 hp at 8250 rpm and up to 85 ft-lbs. of torque at 7000. The 60-degree Revolution V-Twin engine is liquid-cooled and features Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI), dual overhead cams, four-valve heads, and a five-speed transmission. The engine is rubber-mounted in hydroformed steel perimeter frame. A steel shell covers the large-volume airbox. A 5-gallon fuel tank is located below the seat on all VRSC models.

Slipper Clutch: All 2008 VRSC models have a new clutch with race-bred “slipper” action that helps mitigate drivetrain strain and rear-wheel lock-up during downshifting. Integral with the new clutch design is an assist feature that reduces clutch-lever effort by more than 20 percent.

Optional ABS: For the first time, each VRSC model is available with optional, factory-installed Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS). Designed to work in conjunction with the high-performance Brembo brakes on all VRSC models, this is the most advanced braking system offered on any power cruiser. ABS is designed to help the rider maintain control during emergency stopping situations, especially those that happen in less than ideal conditions. The components of the Harley-Davidson ABS have been designed and packaged to be virtually invisible, preserving the clean custom styling of the area around the wheels. Unlike many motorcycle ABS, Harley-Davidson ABS is a manual, independent system, meaning the rider maintains full, independent control of how much of each brake is applied.

105th Anniversary Edition: A limited-edition, serialized VRSCAW V-Rod 105th Anniversary Edition will be available in 2008 (see separate release for details on the 105th Anniversary package).

VRSCAW/A V-Rod features:

HARLEY-DAVIDSON VRSC PLATFORM MUSCLES UP FOR 2008
1250cc Revolution V-Twin with Slipper Clutch on All Models, ABS Now an Option

MILWAUKEE (July 9, 2007) – The Harley-Davidson family of VRSC premium power cruisers will pack more muscle in 2008. All three VRSC models are powered by the 1250cc Revolution liquid-cooled V-Twin engine, a powertrain originally developed for the Screamin’ Eagle V-Rod and now tuned to crank out up to 125 horsepower and 85 ft.-lbs. of torque. To help harness this new-found power, a new slipper clutch is part of the powertrain. And, for the first time, all VRSC models will be available with optional Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS).

As the only Harley-Davidson platform powered by a liquid-cooled V-Twin engine, the VRSC family offers sleek, drag-bike styling and the performance of high-revving horsepower. A low seat height, stretched-out profile with 36-degree fork angle, wide rear tire and premium components like Brembo triple-disc brakes and 49 mm forks, are characteristics of each VRSC model. These are power cruisers that share the performance and technology legacy of the Screamin’ Eagle / Vance & Hines drag racing team, three-time NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle World Champions.
