Harley in introducing a new engine in the touring models call the "Milwaukee-Eight". Is a 107" and 114" for the CVO's. Comes in both air-cooled and twin cooled. They claim a 3 mile per gallon increase to 45 mpg.

I averaged 47.7 mpg on our trip to CO/Sturgis...3625 miles. I'm sure the thin mountain air and almost coasting down some mountains helped a lot to increase my normal 41-42 mpg on our 2015 ultra limited. I

The Milwaukee-Eight comes from the number of valves, doesn't it? The new one has 4 per cylinder. Overkill?

We road to Sturgis this year with another couple. Both of us riding two up and both pulling trailers. My 2002 Ultra with 5-speed consistently got better mileage than my partners 2011 6-speed Road Glide. :D

I normally get 32-36 towing a leisure lite behind my 2013 RKC. I put woods 222 cams which made 6th gear usable while towing.
