Earlier we had reported that the American leisure motorcycle brand – Harley-Davidson is experiencing dropping sales worldwide. We also added that the company have hopes from the 2018 lineup which will be much more advance. Now, we have acquired reports about the updates these motorcycles will go through. 2018 Harley-Davidson models lying in Dyna and Softail category will come with the all-new Milwaukee-Eight engines

Milwaukee-Eight is an engine which is developed by the blokes working at Harley-Davidson which has been implemented in some of the models till now. Combining the older mechanism, which includes 45-degree V-angle and pushrod valve actuation, with the modern technique, this new unit now has four valves per cylinder. This makes the engine more efficient as compared to older bikes which would earlier fall short on power.

The engine is divided into three categories which are codenamed as 107, 114 and 117 which come with the capacity of 1746cc, 1868cc and 1923cc, respectively. All these engines will be mounted by distributing them in various Softail and Dyna models across the Harley-Davidson portfolio.

2018 Harley-Davidson models won’t just get improvised on the engine but the handling will also be much better. Owing to the all-new frame and chassis, which reduces its weight by up to 16 kgs, and the new under-seat single shock, the handling of the 2018 Harley-Davidson models will improve considerably.

2018 is going to be the 115th Anniversary of the company since it has got incepted. To celebrate this, a range Anniversary editions will be out. This range includes Breakout S Anniversary, Fat Boy S Anniversary, Tri Glide Ultra Anniversary, Heritage Classic S Anniversary, CVO Ultra Limited Anniversary and Ultra Limited Anniversary.

We hope making these changes will help the iconic brand regain its position and the sales will hike worldwide. The entire lineup of 2018 Harley-Davidson models is expected to be unveiled by the end of this year and we wait for it eagerly.
