Autonomous Vehicles Should Stop Hitting Motorcycles

The safety of autonomous cars remains in question, as a self-driving Chrysler Pacifica hit a motorcyclist on October 19 in Mountain View, California, when the test driver took control of the car to avoid a vehicle that had suddenly moved into its lane.  The manufacturer claims its technology, which can “see 360 degrees in every direction,” could have avoided the incident if the car’s software had remained in control, but reports from around the country indicate that self-driving cars are struggling to handle some driving tasks.

Autonomous cars are hitting the road whether we like it or not, but the presumption that they will be safer than human drivers when it comes to avoiding accidents has so far proven less than promising.  There have been at least three reported cases of an autonomous car crashing into a motorcycle.  On July 27, 2016, a motorcyclist in Norway was seriously injured when she was rear-ended by a Tesla Model S with its Autopilot self-driving system engaged.  Additionally, on December 7, 2017, a California motorcyclist was hurt in a collision with a self-driving Chevy Bolt that had aborted a signaled lane change and was returning to its original lane while the rider was lane splitting past it, a maneuver that is legal in California.

Another disturbing incident occurred when an autonomous Uber car struck and killed a woman who was walking her bicycle across the road at night.  One would think that the car’s radar and infrared scanners would detect such an object far better than the human eye could.  Indeed, the car’s onboard computer detected the obstruction in the road six seconds before impact.   Unfortunately, it failed to identify what type of object she was until just 1.3 seconds before impact, at which point it was too late to avoid hitting her.  Other factors, such as an inattentive human driver who was supposed to be monitoring the car’s surroundings, also contributed to the fatal crash, but a computer that fails to identify a target for nearly five seconds should be quite disturbing to motorcyclists who may suffer from this fate as well.

Adaptive Cruise Control is a radar guidance system that enables a car to change its speed relative to the vehicle in front of it based on traffic conditions. A study by RDW has determined that existing adaptive cruise control systems often do not do an adequate job of locking onto a motorcycle rather than a car.  These systems seem to have difficulty detecting a motorcycle not riding in the center of its lane, which is a problem since riders tend to occupy either the left or right tire grooves of a lane.

Another study by Dynamic Research shows similar results when it comes to forward collision warnings detecting motorcycles.  Throughout the tests, forward collision warning systems failed to detect the motorcycle adequately in 40% of trials.  Similarly, 37% of simulated crashes in this test occurred because the car’s onboard detection systems didn’t see the motorcycle, which is also the number one cause of motorcycle accidents with human drivers.

If autonomous driving systems are designed properly, developed with motorcyclists in mind rather than an afterthought, they could potentially deliver on their promise of making the roads safer for everyone.  “They could be on the lookout for motorcycles and other road hazards in all directions at all times, something even the most attentive human driver can never do,” according to RideApart.com“The trick is to design such systems to work in this way as a core functionality.  Autonomous vehicles must be able to search, evaluate, and execute the same way the Motorcycle Safety Foundation teaches all riders to.”

Star Tron Winter Prep 2019

By | New Product News

Star Tron Winter Prep 2019 

Prepare Bikes for Off Season Storage  

Make Sure It Starts in the Spring

Now that temperatures are dropping, it’s time to prepare motorcycles, and other gas-powered equipment for off season storage. However, you need to do more than “just stabilize” fuel.  

All fuel needs to be stabilized to help prevent it from degrading during storage. Stabilizing is especially important for ethanol-blended fuel because ethanol and gasoline cannot form a chemical bond; as fuel ages, evaporation and oxidation can lead to gums and other debris that clogs carburetors and fuel injectors, making engines run rough or suddenly become difficult to start. The engines are fine – it is the fuel that is the problem. 

Star Tron Enzyme Fuel Treatment is engineered to protect fuel during winter storage. The enzymes help maintain fuel quality for up to 2 years to ensure easy, smoke-free starts. Star Tron’s enzymes also allow for a more complete burn of the fuel charge for easy starts, maximum power and improved fuel economy. A more complete burn of the fuel charge also helps prevent carbon deposits, keeping engines running clean with significantly reduced emissions. Star Tron helps treat water issues caused by condensation by breaking apart clumps of water molecules into tiny submicron-sized droplets that can be safely eliminated while the engine is running. When it’s time to ride, engines running Star Tron-treated fuel start easy and run smooth. 

Used year-round, Star Tron Enzyme Fuel Treatment keeps all engines starting easily and running smoothly. For more information, visit www.startron.com or call (800) 327-8583.

Mustang’s Popular Wide Tripper Now Available for Indian

A stylish, sporty and comfortable upgrade for Indian heavyweights.

Available for all ’14-later Chief®, Chieftain®, Springfield® and Roadmaster® models, the new 2-up Mustang Wide Tripper features a streamlined one-piece design that places riders slightly lower and further back compared to the stock seat. 

The low-cut driver area sits the rider comfortably “in” the motorcycle rather than “on” it, offering easier ground reach and commanding control. A high-quality expanded vinyl cover offered in black or distressed brown provides the appearance of leather with added durability to withstand harsh elements. The hand-sewn covers feature a unique diamond-stitch design for a true off-the-shelf custom appearance. 

The Wide Tripper is offered with or without a fully adjustable and easily removable driver backrest that provides fully tailored lumbar support with its fore/aft and up/down positioning. The built-in driver backrest receiver is mounted directly to the baseplate, offering easy tool-less installation and removal.

Made in the U.S.A., all Mustang seats are handcrafted and shaped with a proprietary controlled-density polyurethane-based foam that requires no break-in period and retains its shape after years of use. The patented foam compound provides even weight distribution and support across the Wide Tripper’s 13” wide driver area and 10” wide passenger area.

Donnie Smith Show Weekend

Thrills and Spills of “War of the Twins” Return to Kick-Off Donnie Smith Show Weekend

Tickets now on sale for electrifying Indoor Flat Track Races at Lee & Rose Warner Coliseum in March.

Authentic Indoor Flat Track motorcycle racing is returning to the Twin Cities for the second year on March 22, 2019 to kick-off the largest custom bike and car show weekend in the Midwest, the Donnie Smith Show – Midwest Extravaganza! Last year’s show was a breakout success nearly reaching attendance capacity, proving that the hunger for this style of racing action has never gone away in the Twin Cities. Tickets are now on sale for the War of the Twins II. All seats and VIP boxes are assigned by reservation only. The best seats will be purchased first, so enthusiasts are encouraged to make reservations early. Tickets are available for $15 in advance online. The first 500 children 12 and under in the door accompanied by a parent will receive free entry, two free children admissions per adult ticket purchase. VIP box seating tickets are an additional $25. Reservations may be made here: IndoorFlatTrack.com/tickets.  

There’s nothing like the sound, fury or speed of flat track bikes launching off the stripe or ripping down the straightaway. Thirteen seasons, from 1968 to 1980, the revered Minneapolis Armory hosted “The Indoors,” indoor flat track racing that filled otherwise dreary winter months with handlebar-to-handlebar, down-and-dirty race action. Over those years, hundreds of privateer racers found a home in which to compete. As one of the largest, most successful and longest-running flat track events, The Indoors put the sport on the map. The Twin Cities welcomed the heart-pounding thunder of indoor flat track racing back again last March at the Lee & Rose Warner Coliseum on the Minnesota State Fairgrounds.   

“We were thrilled with the attendance and incredible reaction to the races last year,” said Neil Ryan, promoter of the Donnie Smith Bike & Car Show. “Flat track has played into that American spirit of independence, competitiveness, and the need for speed, the elements that make this such a great partner sport for the Donnie Smith Bike & Car Show. I rarely see a home run in its first year like we experienced. We expect this event to continue to grow and provide thrilling racing action for years to come.”

Sponsoring the Indoor Flat Track races are GEICO Motorcycle, Russ Brown, Sturgis Buffalo Chip, Lucas Oil and S&S Cycle.

Donnie Smith Show

The Donnie Smith Show Bike and Car Show presented by Dennis Kirk will take place at the St. Paul RiverCentre in St. Paul, Minn. on the two days following the races, Saturday, March 23 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday, March 24 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. In addition to motorcycles and cars, the 225,000-square-foot indoor event showcases a popular swap meet billed as “The Largest Parts Extravaganza on the Planet.”

Tickets for the Donnie Smith Bike & Car Show will be coming soon. More information can be found by signing up for their newsletter at DonnieSmithShow.com.

Factory Racer Inspired Gas Tanks For Custom Harley-Davidson Motorcycles

By | New Product News

Factory Racer Inspired Gas Tanks For Custom Harley-Davidson Motorcycles

Lowbrow Customs offers new bolt-on bobber gas tanks for Harley-Davidsons. Inspired by factory race bikes of the 1940’s, this cut-down, classic style can be appropriated for Knucklehead, Panhead and Shovelhead motorcycles.

The WX Gas Tanks from Lowbrow Customs are directly influenced by the Harley-Davidson WR, but with an innovative design that allows these new gas tanks to fit almost a half-century’s worth of motorcycles. In 1946 Harley-Davidson introduced the WR factory racer, a 45 cubic-inch flathead designed to dominate the flat tracks and road courses in America. The narrowed tanks were part of the slim profile and ‘all-business’ form that follows function when it comes to a fast and nimble motorcycle. 

The beauty and simplicity of Lowbrow Customs’ WX Gas Tanks is that with the included, innovative rear mount they will bolt right up to your stock Harley-Davidson Big Twin frame from 1936 – 1984. Get a custom, narrowed look with a tight gap between the tanks and no fabrication required. These are the perfect tanks for a custom Shovelhead or Panhead chopper, bobber or custom motorcycle. 

WX Gas Tanks have a capacity of 2.25 gallons and feature both a vent and fuel crossover and accept a 22mm fuel petcock, and accept standard cam-style Harley-Davidson motorcycle gas caps. For details call toll-free 1-855-456-9276 or see www.lowbrowcustoms.com/wxtanks 

Lowbrow Customs is based in Brunswick, Ohio, USA and has been at the forefront of design in custom motorcycle parts for bobbers and choppers since 2004. WX Gas Tanks are the latest addition to their extensive line of custom motorcycle gas tanks. Panhead pictured built by The Gasbox.

President Trump Authorizes EPA To Make E-15 Fuel Available Year-Round
President Donald Trump has given the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) the authority to lift current restrictions on E-15 gas (containing 15% ethanol) to allow year-round sales of the higher ethanol blend.  Following the federal rulemaking process and public comment period, the expanded sales are expected to begin during the summer of 2019.

In 1978, a Clean Air Act waiver allowed the use of 10 volume percent ethanol in gasoline (E-10), and today almost all fuels are E-10 blends.  In June 2011, EPA approved a partial waiver for blends of 15 vol% ethanol in gasoline for use in model year 2001 and newer passenger cars, light-trucks and medium-duty vehicles.  However, the EPA does not approve the use of E-15 in small engines such as motorcycles or ATVs, and its use can damage vehicles and void manufacturer warranties.

Currently, gasoline retailers throughout most of the country are prohibited from offering E-15 during the summer months.  The President’s directive to the EPA is to change that.

CHP To Address Motorcycle Safety With Federal Funds
The California Highway Patrol is using a federal grant to promote motorcycle safety throughout the state, with the goal of reducing the most dangerous traffic violations which they say are speeding, improper turning, and driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.

There are more than 1.4 million people with a motorcycle license in the state. The education campaign is called GEARS, or Get Educated And Ride Safe.

The year-long campaign will include the CHP deploying officers on enhanced motorcycle safety enforcement operations in regions with a high number of motorcycle incidents.  There will be a series of motorcycle traffic safety education campaigns, including the May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month.  Officers plan to stress the use of properly approved helmets for all riders and raise motorists’ awareness of sharing the road with motorcyclists.

According to provisional data from 2017, the number of motorcycle accident victims shows a 6% decrease compared to the previous year.

ABS Is Now Mandatory For New Bikes In Japan
In an effort to reduce the number of traffic-related motorcycle accidents and fatalities, Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport, and Tourism (MLIT) made amendments to the country’s safety standards for road transport back in January, 2015, including the requirement for all new motorcycles, 125cc or larger, to be equipped with standard Anti-lock Braking Systems (ABS) effective on October 1, 2018.

Additionally, newly launched two-wheelers from 125cc and below must come with either ABS or CBS (Combined Braking System, which allows simultaneous front and rear brake application with a single input).  Continuous production motorcycles have until October 1, 2021 to comply.

Dirt bikes specifically designated for off-road use and competition are exempted from the law.

Europe has had ABS laws since 2016, and India’s obligatory braking system regulations came into effect earlier this year.  Taiwan and China are expected to follow in 2019 and 2020 respectively.  Here in the U.S., the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has made recommendations to the federal government to enforce the same measures, while countries like Australia and Brazil are also considering similar regulations.

As more countries get on board, vendors around the world have reportedly been bracing themselves for possible slowdowns in motorcycle sales due to higher manufacturing costs.

Philippine Police Seize Modified Motorcycles & Accessories
The past few months have been very busy for law enforcement officers in the Philippines, where police have apprehended traffic violators, cited smoke belching vehicles, and impounded erring motorcycle riders’ property.

Among those apprehended were motorcycles fitted with certain modifications, which have been serving as a bone of contention for both riders and enforcers, according to MotoPinas.com.  Among those accessories confiscated were auxiliary LED lighting systems, aftermarket mufflers, aftermarket side mirrors, and upgraded brakes which aren’t compliant with Motor Vehicle Inspection System (MVIS) guidelines.

The Motorcycle Rights Organization (MRO-Philippines) suggests that when apprehended for fitting illegal accessories, refuse the order to remove your accessories and insist the apprehending officer remove the accessories from your motorcycle “because as far as the LTO (Land Transportation Office) is concerned, you are within set regulations,” adding “Do not argue with the apprehending officers.  There is always a proper/lawful venue for contesting the apprehension.”

Driver Found Guilty Of Homicide In Racer Nicky Hayden’s Fatal Crash
On May 17, 2017, a speeding driver struck renowned MotoGP motorcycle racer Nicky Hayden as he was riding a bicycle in Italy, tragically passing away from his injuries five days later. Nearly a year and a half later, we have learned that the driver was charged with murder.

The unidentified 31-year-old driver at the wheel of a Peugeot 206 was reportedly driving at roughly 43 miles per hour (70 kph) in a 30 zone.  Although Hayden was zipping down a crossing street and ran through the intersection, the judge in charge of the ruling considers had the driver respected the speed limit, he would have had time to react to Hayden’s presence.

The driver has been found guilty of “road homicide” and sentenced to a year in prison.  His license has also been revoked and he will be expected to pay all the court fees.  The driver’s attorney has said they will appeal the ruling.

The driver is not only facing a criminal sentence but also a civil lawsuit, as Hayden’s family is suing the driver for $6 Million, the maximum covered by the Italian insurance policy.

Nicknamed “The Kentucky Kid”, 35-year-old Nicky Hayden began his career in MotoGP in 2003 with Repsol Honda and went on to win the MotoGP championship in 2006.  He also competed in American dirt track racing, winning a few Grand National events.  Hayden continued racing in MotoGP through 2015, competing for Ducati Team (2009-2013) and Aspar Honda (2014-2015).  Hayden made the jump to the World Superbike Championship for the 2016 season, becoming the sole American in the series until his untimely death last May.

Motorcycle Racing Incident May End Up In Court
Moto2 rider Romano Fenati was disqualified after he astonishingly grabbed the brake of rival motorcycle racer Stefano Manzi at high speed during a mid-September race in Misano, Italy, and has since been banned for two races, the FIM racing authority suspended his license, and his team contract has been cancelled.

But now the fallout from the disgraced racer’s brake-grabbing incident continues, with Italian news agency ANSA reporting he could now face a charge of “private violence.”

The Public Prosecutor of Rimini (in Italy) is said to have opened the investigation for the less serious charge, rather than that of “attempted murder.”

“Private violence” is akin to a motorist cutting off another driver on the road.  However, the use of such a charge for competitors in a motor race would set a very worrying precedent.

Fenati pulled Manzi’s front brake after the pair had clashed repeatedly during their home race, and although extremely dangerous, both riders remained upright.

Trade Deal Nets Cheaper Motorcycles For EU, But Brexit Rules Out Brits
A trade agreement between Japan and the European Union could spell disaster for British bike buyers, as the British Motorcyclists Federations (BMF) reports that the deal removes common EU external customs tariffs from Japanese manufacturers’ imports.

Under the EU-Japan Economic Partnership signed earlier this year, the 6% tariff affecting motorcycles will be abolished over the next five years — meaning cheaper bikes for EU buyers. European consumers will also benefit from common standards of type approval on product safety as well as emissions.

However, this free trade deal is unlikely to apply to the UK due to Brexit, with that country’s exit from the EU.  EU-based manufacturers will also enjoy more competitive access to the Japanese market, while those in the UK will continue to face tariff constraints.

But Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzō Abe did recently state that Japan would welcome Britain with “open arms” to the 11 country Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), though the timeframe is not likely to be soon.

So while EU riders look to benefit from less expensive bikes and Japanese-standard type approval, Brits are still in the dark as to what this means…

Singapore Biker Groups Aggrieved By Ban On Older Motorcycles
When the National Environment Agency (NEA) announced on April 6 that motorcycles registered before July 1, 2003 would be banned from the roads after June 30, 2028, many riders’ dreams of having an older classic motorcycle or “hand down our precious bikes to our children,” went “down the drain.”

Calling it a “Plain injustice,” bikers say the ban “will push rare, vintage bikes into oblivion.”

The NEA told ChannelNewsAsia that the government is trying to reduce emissions from some 27,000 older motorcycles as part of a push to meet Singapore’s air quality targets by 2020.  Owners of older motorcycles have been offered up to S$3,500 to de-register their bikes within the next five years.  Beyond that, emission standards for such motorcycles will be tightened, before the 2028 ban kicks in.

These initiatives come as NEA figures indicate that older bikes emit up to 30 times more pollutants than new bikes, and contribute 40% of the total carbon monoxide emitted by motorcycles on the road.  Bikers counter that all motorcycles, regardless of age, must pass inspection and emissions testing, though older bikes are subject to less stringent standards.

Explaining its rationale for the July 1, 2003 cut-off date, NEA said Singapore adopted Euro 1 type approval standards for new motorcycles on that date.  Motorcycles registered before that are more pollutive than newer models which comply with the Euro 4 standard.

Some of these bikes, however, may be able to stay on the roads even after the ban — provided they are converted under the Classic Vehicle Scheme, which allows vehicles to be used for up to 45 days in a calendar year. But the catch is that to qualify for the scheme, the bikes must be at least 35 years old; meaning that when the ban begins in 2028, affected bikes registered after June 1993 will not qualify…so “nearly two decades of bikes will be destroyed…put into storage…or exported.”

Dumb News: Youtube Posting Gets Man 1-Year Motorcycle Ban
A motorcycle rider who ran from police at speeds up to 143 mph was caught when his own helmet cam video posting was spotted on YouTube.  The rider had fled from a St. Charles, ILL officer who spotting him making an illegal turn and riding a bike without a registration plate, according to a report in the Daily Herald.

The incident was included in a compilation video of motorcycles running from police that was posted to the FailsandFlights YouTube account, and shows the elusive motorcyclist waiting at a red light, turn his head toward the officer who is signaling for him to shut the motorcycle off, but instead pulls away through several stopped cars, runs the light and accelerates down the road.

At one point, the video displayed a link to the film star’s personal YouTube page, which investigators used, along with his other social media channels, to track him down and make an arrest.  He was charged with several felonies, but agreed to plead guilty to misdemeanor reckless driving and will perform 100 hours of community service and cannot own or ride a motorcycle for one year.

Sons Of Speed Back Again for Sixth Race During Biketoberfest 

At New Smyrna Speedway

Daytona, FL (October 16, 2018) – Billy Lane’s proven Sons of Speed vintage motorcycle boardtrack race is back for a sixth time during the 26th running of the annual Fall  Biketoberfest Event in Daytona Beach Florida. On Friday, October 19th, at 3:00 p.m., over a dozen daredevil vintage motorcycle racers will speed around the banked track at New Smyrna Speedway.

“We’re coming off a successful Sturgis race, which took place on dirt,” said Billy Lane, renowned bike builder and founder of Sons of Speed. “The paved banks of the New Smyrna offers racers the chance to let it all  hang out. There is nothing like these 100 plus year old machines chasing each other down.”

Inspired by early twentieth-century board-track racers, the Sons of Speed race hearkens back to a stripped down, wide-open approach to motorcycle riding. Held at New Smyrna Speedway’s half-mile, banked racetrack, the sixth SOS race will feature thirteen riders in several different heats, and winners of the heats will advance to a championship round. Each racer will sit astride hand-built racing chassis holding pre-1925 1,000cc American V-Twin engines, and most racers will customize their machines by fabricating handlebars, exhaust, fenders, foot pegs and fuel/oil tanks.

Dozens of racers have raced in Sons of Speed races across the country including: Billy Lane, Xavier Muriel, Ken Curtis, Shelly Rossmeyer-Pepe, Buzz Kanter, Dan Toce, Rhett Rotten, Ebay Jake, Rick Petcko, Mark Hanna, Freddie Bollwage, Matt Walksler, Brook James, Matt Harris and Moonshiner Josh Owens.

Check out the Sons of Speed Facebook page for breaking news and upcoming events. You can purchase general admission tickets online for $20. A limited amount of 50 VIP tickets will be available for purchase at the gate that will allow infield access.

Indian Motorcycle’s Scout FTR750 Sweeps Top Five At Minnesota Mile

Indian Motorcycle Wrecking Crew Rider Bryan Smith Takes First, Privateers Henry Wiles and Robert Pearson Finish 2-3

Indian Motorcycle Racing and the FTR750 swept the top five positions at the Minnesota Mile. Wrecking Crew rider Bryan Smith earned his second win of the season, while Indian privateers Henry Wiles and Robert Pearson rounded out the podium aboard their FTR750s placing second and third, respectively.

The main event kicked off with a heated battle for first between Wrecking Crew rider and 2018 Grand National Champion Jared Mees and Indian privateer Briar Bauman, who eventually got away from Mees in the first half of the race. Mees, who continued to trail Bauman for several more laps experienced a mechanical issue which took him out of the running, leaving Bauman to lead the pack with a comfortable gap. With a little over a lap to go, Bauman ran out of fuel, leaving the first-place position wide open for Bryan Smith who ultimately clinched the win.

“We’re thrilled to be hosting the Minnesota Mile in Indian Motorcycle’s backyard and it was great to see Bryan take the win after an exciting night of racing,” said Gary Gray, Vice President – Racing, Technology & Service for Indian Motorcycle. “Mees and Bauman fought hard and we look forward to seeing them back at the season finale at the Meadowlands Mile.”

Mees has already secured the 2018 Grand National Title and now has 346 points. He has the possibility of recording the highest single-season win percentage in American Flat Track history if he wins the final race of the season this weekend.  Indian Motorcycle privateer Henry Wiles currently ranks second with 259 points, while Brian Bauman ranks third with 201 points. Jeffrey Carver Jr. and Chad Cose are fourth and fifth with 194 and 168 points, respectively.

The final race of the season takes place on October 6 at the Meadowlands Mile in New Jersey.

Authorities Misapplying Texas Law to Disarm Bikers

Authorities Misapplying Texas Law to Disarm Bikers

The MPP has repeatedly reported on the rising trend in Texas of arresting members of motorcycle clubs for possession of weapons, including members that have no criminal record and that possess a license to carry (LTC, or concealed carry permit). Prosecutions follow arrests, and on September 21st, 2018 a jury in El Paso convicted an individual with no criminal record solely for being a member of the Bandidos Motorcycle Club in possession of a legal weapon.

If this seems outrageous, your instincts are correct. The MPP, after conducting cursory research on 46.02, has identified precedent, Ex Parte Flores 483 SW 3d 632 (2015), that clearly articulates how law enforcement is currently misinterpreting and misapplying Texas statute in violation of the basic rules of evidence and the US Constitutional.

Law Enforcement and prosecutors should immediately cease and desist misapplying Texas statute. Applying Texas Penal Code 46.02 to members of clubs with no criminal records, and even LTC’s, would chill 1st Amendment Association and the doctrine of personal guilt, “a cornerstone of American Jurisprudence.”

Indian Motorcycle Debuts Highly-Anticipated FTR 1200 & FTR 1200 S

By | New Product News

Indian Motorcycle Debuts Highly-Anticipated FTR 1200 & FTR 1200 S

New Flat Track Inspired Street Bike Draws From Indian Motorcycle’s Storied History & Success in Flat Track Racing 

All-New Platform Combines Flat Tracker Styling with Powerful New Liquid-Cooled V-Twin Engine with 120 Horsepower 

Today Indian Motorcycle, America’s First Motorcycle Company, set a new standard for American motorcycling with the unveiling of the FTR 1200 and FTR 1200 S.  The FTR platform proudly breaks new ground and answers the call of enthusiasts around the world anxiously awaiting its debut. 

Inspired by Indian Motorcycle’s storied history and success in flat track racing, the FTR 1200 and FTR 1200 S take design and styling cues from the championship-winning FTR750 race bike that has dominated American Flat Track since it was introduced in 2016. It also takes styling inspiration from the FTR1200 Custom, unveiled a year ago as an exploration of what a flat track-inspired street bike could be.  The platform delivers an American motorcycle with true flat tracker style and the performance to back it up.

The FTR 1200 combines race inspired design and nimble handling with an upright riding position to create a commanding riding experience. A new 1203cc V-Twin engine with approximately 120 horsepower makes sure every rider feels like a pro when they twist the throttle. The new platform is a key component in the company’s broader mission to expand its global appeal and reach new riders. 

“Our vision from the beginning was to be more than a traditional American V-twin brand. We continually seek to broaden Indian Motorcycle’s reach to a wider range of riders, and FTR 1200 represents a significant step forward in that strategy,” said Steve Menneto, President, Indian Motorcycle. “Indian Motorcycle was founded on performance and innovation, and we remain grounded by our founder’s mindset of constantly pushing forward. In light of that history, the FTR 1200 is a natural extension for the brand that we couldn’t be more excited about.”

Housed in a trellis frame with a sporty riding position, both models feature an inverted front suspension with radially mounted dual Brembo brakes for exceptional control and stopping power. The fuel tank is strategically located under the seat for a lower center of gravity and more centralized weight distribution. Similar to the FTR750 race bike, the airbox is positioned directly above the engine to optimize airflow and maximize power. Both models feature a similar rear suspension and swingarm design as the FTR750 to not only provide a race bike look, but also ensure maximum grip and compliance on even the roughest of roads. Newly-developed Dunlop street tires with flat track-inspired tread, a chain final drive, and ProTaper flat tracker aluminum handlebars complete the race bike look. 

“This is an extremely exciting platform for us, and after investing such a significant amount of time, expertise and energy in the design process, it’s an incredible feeling to finally show the world these motorcycles,” said Rich Christoph, the Indian Motorcycle Senior Designer who was also instrumental in the design of the FTR750 and FTR1200 Custom.  “Our primary focus was to ensure these motorcycles carried the same lines and form language as the FTR750 and 1200 Custom.  We knew that’s what riders around the world fell in love with.  I couldn’t be more proud to turn the FTR750 into a flat tracker for the street and help launch Indian into a new era.” 


Adding to the design is a host of premium features and ride-enhancing technologies. The FTR 1200 and FTR 1200 S models both feature full LED lighting, including a new headlight that provides an unmistakable face for the platform, a fast-charge USB port to easily charge mobile devices, anti-lock brakes (ABS) and cruise control for a comfortable ride. 

Propelling both models is a powerful new liquid-cooled 1203cc V-twin engine making approximately 120 horsepower and 85 ft-lbs of torque.  A flat torque curve ensures a progressive, predictable power delivery with loads of low-end punch and flexibility. The engine features a 12.5:1 compression ratio, high flow cylinder heads, and dual throttle bodies for optimal airflow and power.  Additionally, the engine makes wide use of magnesium to reduce weight and utilizes a low-inertia crankshaft that allows the engine to rev to its redline quickly for thrilling acceleration. 

The FTR 1200 S features all that and more, including: 

  • Fully adjustable front and rear piggy-back suspension with preload, compression, and rebound adjustments so riders can perfectly match the bike to their personal riding style 
  • 4.3-inch customizable Ride Command LCD touch screen with Bluetooth for easy mobile device pairing
  • Lean-angle sensitive stability control, ABS, traction control, and wheelie mitigation control for improved confidence and control
  • Three Ride Modes (Sport, Standard, Rain) with unique throttle response and traction control intervention levels

The new platform underwent extensive development and testing to ensure it meets Indian Motorcycle’s high quality standards and performs at the highest levels.

“These bikes have gone through a rigorous, multi-year design and testing process to ensure that they perform as good as they look,” explains Ben Lindaman, Indian Motorcycle Senior International Product Manager.  “The process was incredibly robust, including over one million miles logged through simulated rides.  We also accumulated tens of thousands of test miles on the street with input from racers, including our championship winning Wrecking Crew flat track team and former Grand Prix racers.”

The FTR 1200 starts at $12,999 and is available in Thunder Black, while the FTR 1200 S starts at $14,999 and is available in Indian Motorcycle Red over Steel Gray, Titanium Metallic over Thunder Black Pearl, and a Race-Replica paint scheme matching the iconic FTR750 race bike. Both models will be available in dealers in spring of 2019.

Federal Agency Seeks Anti-Lock Brakes On New Motorcycles In The U.S.
The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has recommended that all new motorcycles built for road use in the U.S. have anti-lock brakes and electronic stability control as standard equipment.  The federal safety agency says that ABS has been required on passenger cars since 2000, and electronic stability control has been required since the 2012 model year, but the technology has lagged for motorcycles and requiring it would save lives.

The NTSB voted unanimously 5-0 during their September 11 open board meeting to make the recommendations to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), which has authority to impose regulations.

NTSB Chairman Robert Sumwalt said that the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) determined that anti-lock brakes could reduce motorcycle fatalities by 31%.  “That is a sizeable safety benefit that the U.S. is leaving on the table, leaving on the pavement, actually,” he told the Associated Press (AP).

Eric Emery, the NTSB’s Safety Research Division chief, said anti-lock brakes would allow riders to use maximum braking force without fear of the wheels locking up and skidding, improving the chances of keeping control of bikes in an emergency.

Anti-lock brakes are currently standard on 8.9% of U.S. motorcycles and are optional on 13.3%.  Anti-lock brakes were required in Europe starting in 2016 on motorcycles with engines larger than 125 CC, agency officials said.  Other countries are discussing or requiring it, including Australia, Japan, China and Brazil.

NTSB Issues New Recommendations To “Improve Motorcycle Safety”
Safety issues surrounding the causes of motorcycle crashes, and the prevention of crashes through better integration of motorcycles in crash warning and prevention systems and the use of advanced braking and stability control systems, were the subject of a National Transportation Safety Board meeting conducted Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2018 in Washington, D.C.

During the public hearing, staff from the Office of Research and Engineering and the Office of Highway Safety presented findings and recommendations from the “2016 Motorcycle Crash Causation Study” on select risk factors associated with the causes of motorcycle crashes, which were adopted unanimously by the five-member board.

Among 10 recommendations included in the report, “Select Risk Factors Associated with Causes of Motorcycle Crashes,” are calls for all new on-road motorcycles sold in the United States to be equipped with antilock braking systems and that the federal government establish performance standards for electronic stability control on motorcycles sold in the U.S.

Additionally, the report recommends that motorcycles be fully incorporated in the development of technology for on-board crash prevention and vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure systems.

It also calls for further study and strategies regarding alcohol and drug use on rider crash risk, and to evaluate the effectiveness of motorcycle licensing procedures.

The NTSB does not typically investigate motorcycle crashes, but it conducted a motorcycle safety forum in 2006 and issued recommendations as a result.  It has been more than 10 years since the NTSB has issued new recommendations “to help reduce motorcycle crashes and improve safety.”

Ending CARB
The Trump Administration has announced plans to revoke a special waiver that currently allows California to regulate vehicle tailpipe emissions differently than what the federal government mandates, which would eliminate California’s more stringent greenhouse gas standards imposed under CARB (California Air Resources Board).

CARB’s stricter smog standards have been adopted in thirteen states and the District of Columbia, representing nearly 40% of the nation’s new vehicle sales.

Sikh Helmet Exemption Granted In Ontario On Religious Grounds
This winter, Ontario’s Ministry of Transportation says Sikh riders will be exempt from the province’s mandatory motorcycle helmet law due to the wearing of turbans.  The possibility of an exemption has been a contentious topic for years throughout Canada, with some arguing that it would pose a safety risk, but now Premier Doug Ford says he will make the change in recognition of Sikh motorcycle riders’ civil rights and religious expression.

Star Tron Winter Prep 2019

Star Tron Winter Prep 2019 (PS)

Prepare Bikes/Quads for Off Season Storage  

Make Sure It Starts in the Spring

Press Release: Now that temperatures are dropping, it’s time to prepare motorcycles, ATVs, side-by-sides and other gas-powered equipment for off season storage. However, you need to do more than “just stabilize” fuel.  

All fuel needs to be stabilized to help prevent it from degrading during storage. Stabilizing is especially important for ethanol-blended fuel because ethanol and gasoline cannot form a chemical bond; as fuel ages, evaporation and oxidation leads to gums and other debris that clogs carburetors and fuel injectors, making engines run rough or suddenly become difficult to start. The engines are fine – it is the fuel that is the problem. 

Star Tron Enzyme Fuel Treatment is engineered to protect fuel during winter storage. The enzymes maintain fuel quality for up to 2 years to ensure easy, smoke-free starts. Star Tron’s enzymes also allow for a more complete burn of the fuel charge for easy starts, maximum power and improved fuel economy. A more complete burn of the fuel charge also helps prevent carbon deposits, keeping engines running clean with significantly reduced emissions. Star Tron helps treat water issues caused by condensation by breaking apart clumps of water molecules into tiny submicron-sized droplets that can be safely eliminated while the engine is running. When it’s time to ride, engines running Star Tron-treated fuel start easy and run smooth. 

Used year-round, Star Tron Enzyme Fuel Treatment keeps all engines starting easily and running smoothly. For more information, visit www.startron.com or call (800) 327-8583.

Indian Motorcycle’s Scout FTR750 Sweeps Podium At Williams Grove Half-Mile

Indian Motorcycle Privateers Briar & Bronson Bauman Place 1-2, Wrecking Crew Rider & 2018 AFT Champion Jared Mees Takes 3rd

MECHANICSBURG, Penn—Indian Motorcycle Racing continued its American Flat Track dominance as Indian privateer Briar Bauman, aboard his Scout FTR750, secured his first win of the 2018 season. Piloting a factory Indian Motorcycle, at Brad Baker’s request, Bronson Bauman placed second and secured the first Twins podium of his career. Indian Wrecking Crew rider and 2018 Grand National Champion Jared Mees rounded out the podium with a third-place finish.

In a main event that featured bar-to-bar action and multiple lead changes, it was Indian privateer Briar Bauman who spent most of the race locked in a battle with Mees, before ultimately pulling away. Briar’s brother, Bronson, also managed to push his way up to the back tire of Mees and ultimately made a pass with few laps remaining. It was his first career AFT Twins podium.

“The Bauman brothers ran a great race and put on a really good show. Both Briar and Bronson pushed hard to get their 1-2 finish,” said Gary Gray, Vice President – Racing, Technology & Service for Indian Motorcycle.  “It was exciting watching Briar battle Jared to get his first win of 2018.  Plus, Bronson riding Brad’s FTR750 and getting his first ever twins podium made for a really amazing day at Mechanicsburg.”

With two races to go, Mees has already wrapped up his fifth career Grand National Title, securing the victory at last weekend’s Springfield Mile II. The title win was his second consecutive aboard the Indian Scout FTR750. Indian Motorcycle privateer Henry Wiles currently ranks second with 239 points, while Brian Bauman ranks third with 196 points. Jeffrey Carver Jr. and Kenny Coolbeth Jr are fourth and fifth with 180 and 163 points, respectively.

The season continues on September 29 in Indian Motorcycle’s backyard at the Minnesota Mile at Canterbury Park.

Indian Motorcycle Unleashes Redesigned & Updated Chieftain

By | New Product News

Indian Motorcycle Unleashes Redesigned & Updated Chieftain

Restyled Fairing & Saddlebags, Combined with New Features, Offer Riders a More Streamlined, Aggressive Style

New PowerBand Audio Upgrade Package is Loudest Audio System in Indian Motorcycle History

Press Release: Indian Motorcycle, America’s first motorcycle company founded in 1901, today announced a redesigned Chieftain lineup. Since its debut in 2013, the Chieftain has consistently won high marks for handling, power and comfort. Now, for 2019, the Indian Chieftain, Chieftain Dark Horse and Chieftain Limited feature more streamlined, aggressive styling that reflects the bike’s well-established performance capabilities. For those loyal to Indian’s classic designs, the 2019 Indian Chieftain Classic will continue to feature its traditional fairing and iconic valanced front fender.

The redesigned Chieftain lineup continues an evolution that started in 2017 with the introduction of the 10-spoke, 19-inch contrast-cut front wheel and open fender on the Chieftain Limited and Chieftain Elite. The response from customers was overwhelmingly positive, paving the way for this lineup expansion.

“As we continue to evolve the Indian Motorcycle brand, we want to expand our lineup with more aggressive style options, while still maintaining the availability of our more classic style options,” said Reid Wilson, Senior Director for Indian Motorcycle. “What’s most important to us is developing motorcycles that meet a wide variety of customer style preferences, and Chieftain’s new look does just that.”

At first glance of the new Chieftain, riders will notice a restyled fairing and saddlebags with sharper lines and harder edges that give the bike a commanding presence and more streamlined look. A trimmed and slimmed fairing, paired with full LED lighting and new fork guards, delivers a streamlined front-end package that’s indicative of the bike’s impressive performance capabilities. The Chieftain’s new, slammed saddlebags with color-matched fender closeouts also provide a sleek and custom-inspired look. While the new Rogue gunfighter seat gives the bike a sleek, low-slung stance, Chieftain maintains its superior handling and comfort with more than four inches of rear suspension travel. New badging on the tank and saddlebags and the iconic Indian headdress on the front fender complete the package.

In addition to the styling and design enhancements, the 2019 Chieftain lineup features new ride-enhancing technology for increased performance customization and rider comfort. For a more customized ride experience, riders can now choose between three Ride Modes  – Tour, Standard or Sport. The throttle map for each Ride Mode was designed with a specific application in mind, resulting in one bike with three distinct personalities. All 2019 Chieftains are also equipped with Rear Cylinder Deactivation for increased rider comfort when the bike is stationary.

Also new for 2019, the Chieftain Dark Horse lineup expands with new paint options, including White Smoke, Bronze Smoke and Thunder Black Smoke. More than just matte-finish body paint, the 2019 Chieftain Dark Horse now features premium black ceramic exhaust and gloss black finishes on the primary cover, valve covers, push-rod tubes, cam cover, and saddlebag hinges for a custom, blacked-out look.

Chieftain

Enhanced Audio

Several enhancements have also been made to Indian Motorcycle’s stock audio system to significantly improve sound quality. First, the tweeters have been separated from the mid-range speakers to optimize sound output and clarity. Second, a dynamic equalizer that’s fully customizable now adjusts specific frequencies at different vehicle speeds to provide peak system performance at all times. As speed increases, the equalizer automatically adjusts each frequency to the optimal level to compensate for road, wind and engine noise. The result is crystal-clear, 100-watts of premium audio at all speeds.

In summary, the 2019 Chieftain lineup packs a host of new features, including:

·       A restyled fairing and saddlebags that reflect Chieftain’s performance capabilities

·       A new Rogue gunfighter seat that enhances the bike’s sleek profile

·       New front and rear turn signals and full LED lighting

·       New ride-enhancing technology that provides a customizable ride experience with three Ride Modes and Rear Cylinder Deactivation for improved rider comfort

·       Enhanced stock, 100-watt premium audio system for crystal-clear sound at all speeds

Also new for 2019, Indian Motorcycle introduces its loudest audio system to date. With PowerBand Audio, riders can choose from audio configurations that are up to 50 percent louder than stock audio. The system is engineered with an integrated amp on speaker and does not require additional amps. The premium audio package is fully integrated with Indian Motorcyle Ride Command so that when PowerBand Audio speakers are installed, Ride Command automatically recognizes the upgrade and takes the equalizer from five bands to nine bands with additional pre-set options and volume control. Riders can choose from three kits – PowerBand Audio (fairing upgrade), PowerBand Audio Plus (fairing and saddlebag upgrade) and PowerBand Audio Plus with accessory trunk (fairing, saddlebag and accessory trunk upgrade).

Riders can further customize their Chieftain with a variety of accessories, including performance packages from Stage 1, 2 and 3 featuring exhaust, air intakes, cams and the 116 ci big bore kit. Custom fit options like extended and reduced reach seats, mid-rise handlebars and reduced reach handlebars are also available. Color-matched accessories such as Hard Lower Fairings, Saddlebag Audio Lids, a Quick Release Trunk, and for the Chieftain Classic owners, a 10-spoke 19-inch contrast-cut wheel with an open fender can be added to give your bike a custom look.

Pricing for the 2019 Chieftain begins at $21,999 in the U.S. and $26,999 in Canada, while the Chieftain Dark Horse starts at $25,999 in the U.S. and $32,499 in Canada. Indian’s Chieftain Limited is available starting at $25,999 in the U.S. and $32,499 in Canada. Pricing for the Chieftain Classic begins at $24,999 in the U.S. and $31,499 in Canada.

Arriving at dealerships now, riders can learn more or test ride by visiting a local Indian Motorcycle dealership. For more information on the 2019 Chieftain lineup, or to find the nearest dealer, visit IndianMotorcycle.com and follow along on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Easyriders Motorcycle Rodeo Returns to Chillicothe TODAY

By | Events

ChillicotheEasyriders Motorcycle Rodeo Returns to Chillicothe, OH Aug 30 – Sept 3 

Five-Day Motorcycle Rally and Festival Features Concerts by Fuel, David Allan Coe, and Wheeler Walker Jr. with appearances by Jasmine Cain, Cowboy and Miss InTENt!
Returning Crowd Favorites include NTC Drift Trike Races, Ride-In Bike Show, 

Classic Motorcycle Rodeo Games and Events, and On-Site Campout. 

Easyriders Events proudly announces the 30th anniversary of its annual Motorcycle Rodeo at the Ross County Fairgrounds from August 30th thru September 3rd, where more than 10,000 motorcycle enthusiasts will converge for five days of on-site camping, dirt track motorcycle rodeo competitions on two-wheeled steel ponies, live concerts; from old school country to hard-hitting rock. Plus, you’ll find the very best motorcycle-lifestyle related vendors in the country, a ride-in bike show and much more. 

Chillicothe

David Allen Coe

When the sun goes down, the party gets started at the stage. We’ll be rockin’ all weekend starting Friday night with Wheeler Walker Jr. who will be setting the tone for a wild weekend with his undeniably offensive but inarguably hilarious country melodies, followed by Saturday night’s headliner, Fuel, who are celebrating the 20th anniversary of their hit album Sunburn, and finally wrapping up on Sunday with the legendary outlaw country artist David Allan Coe. Supporting acts include Cowboy, Jasmine Cain, Miss InTENt and MORE. A weekend wristband grants the holder access to all event areas, while a day pass will allow one- day access to the venue, limited to the event’s midway (excludes campsite). All are able to view concerts and attractions at no additional charge. 

ChillicotheBeyond the stage, Rodeo attendees will be able to camp on-site for the duration of the event, with early bird camping beginning on Wednesday, August 29th at 2pm. Easyriders Events offers all amenities on-site for guests including shower and bathroom facilities, allowing enthusiasts to maximize their time on-site throughout the weekend. “Easyriders Rodeos are strictly 18 and over events that offer unparalleled opportunity for participants to transcend their normal everyday lives and really let their hair down. For many, these events are an annual getaway from work, the kids and the stresses of everyday life,” says Kari Roben, Event Manager. 

Chillicothe
For those who want to get in on the Rodeo action, the dirt track offers something for everyone. Attendees can participate in the fan favorite NTC Drift Trike Races, sliding their way across the dirt in a race to the finish line or the ever-popular Barstool Races, in which they race –you guessed it– a motorized barstool against friends and strangers through a winding track bordered by hay bales. The action-packed races are just as exciting to participate in as they are to watch from the grandstands – as they always deliver unbeatable entertainment. There are a variety of additional events that are open to the public, and the sign- up cost of your first rodeo event is included in the price of a weekend wristband. Details are available on- site and all are encouraged to participate and truly become a part of the rodeo experience. 

There will be a multitude of unique motorcycle-related vendors setting up shop on the show’s midway; including motorcycle professionals, builders, parts & accessories manufacturers, riding gear, leathersmiths and jewelry designers. The city of Chillicothe, the first capital of the state of Ohio, is centrally located between two major metropolitan areas – Columbus and Cincinnati – attracting many for its beautiful riding country and secluded atmosphere, making the Easyriders Rodeo a favorite adults-only summer destination since 1987.

2019Indian Motorcycle Announces 2019 Chief, Springfield & Roadmaster Models With New Technology That Enhances Riding Experience

New Ride-Enhancing Technology Improves Performance, Comfort, & Audio Quality;
Dark Horse Style Updates and Expanded Color Options Round Out Upgrades for 2019

Indian Motorcycle, America’s first motorcycle company founded in 1901, today announced its 2019 Chief, Springfield and Roadmaster models with new technology designed to enhance and customize the riding experience.  Dark Horse models also get darker with premium gloss black finishes and expanded color options on Springfield Dark Horse.

Developed in direct response to rider feedback, the new technology features focus on improving performance, comfort, and providing more customization. The new features include:

Selectable Ride Modes
Riders can now choose between three Ride Modes on the fly – Tour, Standard or Sport – for a ride experience that’s customized to their riding style. The throttle map for each Ride Mode was designed with a specific application in mind, resulting in one motorcycle with three distinct personalities. “Tour” mode features a smooth throttle response for relaxed cruising. “Standard” mode features a crisp throttle response and well-balanced power delivery for responsive passing power and predictable, slow-speed handling. And finally, “Sport” mode features an instant throttle response and aggressive power delivery for head-snapping acceleration.

2019Rear Cylinder Deactivation
To increase rider comfort, all Thunder Stroke 111 models are now equipped with Rear Cylinder Deactivation. When the engine reaches operating temperature and the ambient temperature exceeds 59⁰ F, the rear cylinder will automatically deactivate when the bike is at a standstill, resulting in less engine heat for improved comfort in slow-moving or stopped traffic. The rear cylinder instantly reactivates when throttle is applied for a seamless transition to full power.

Improved Airflow on Roadmaster Lower Fairings
The lower fairings on the 2019 Roadmaster have been redesigned and optimized to provide significantly more airflow to the rider. This greatly improves comfort while cruising down the road. The redesigned airflow vent can be adjusted from all the way open for maximum airflow to fully closed for total weather protection. The new lowers can be retrofit to bikes from past model years with the addition of new highway bars.

Enhanced Audio System
Several enhancements have been made to Indian Motorcycle’s stock audio system to significantly improve sound quality. First, the tweeters have been separated from the mid-range speakers to optimize sound output and clarity. Second, a dynamic equalizer that’s fully customizable now adjusts specific frequencies at different vehicle speeds to provide peak system performance at all times. As speed increases, the equalizer automatically adjusts each frequency to the optimal level to compensate for road, wind and engine noise. The result is crystal clear, 100-watt premium audio at all speeds.

“These enhancements for 2019 showcase our commitment to listening to riders and continuously improving their experience with our products,” said Steve Menneto, President, Indian Motorcycle.  “We are laser-focused on delivering a best-in-class riding experience, and these new technologies represent a focus on quality that will continue long into the future of Indian Motorcycle.”

Also for 2019, Chief Dark Horse and Springfield Dark Horse receive several style updates that further accentuate their mean, custom styling. These models now boast premium gloss black finishes on the engine including the primary, valve, and cam covers, push-rod tubes, as well as on the exhaust and saddlebag hinges.

Springfield Dark Horse is now offered in two colors –Thunder Black Smoke and a new White Smoke option. Also, notable for the 2019 Springfield Dark Horse is the addition of the iconic Indian headdress on the front fender and a 19” contrast-cut wheel. The front highway bars and windshield were also removed to punctuate its sleek, streamlined stance.

Indian Motorcycle offers a wide range of authentic accessories for riders to customize their bike’s performance, style, comfort and storage. Exciting additions to the accessory line will be announced shortly.

Pricing for the 2019 Chief Dark Horse begins at $17,999 in the U.S. and $21,499 in Canada. The Chief Vintage is available starting at $19,999 in the U.S. and $23,999 in Canada. Pricing for Springfield begins at $20,999 in the U.S. and $25,299 in Canada, while the Springfield Dark Horse begins at $21,499 in the U.S. and $25,999 in Canada. Roadmaster will start at $28,999 in the U.S. and $35,499 in Canada.

  2. Red Pepper/Magnetic Grey/Black Hole with Contrast Anodize Knockout wheels

Three Styling Choices
To appeal to a broad range of customer tastes each 2019 CVO model is offered in three distinctly different styling treatments, from a look with a bright powertrain and chrome details with two-tone paint, to a combination of dark and bright finishes, to a very dark look with a monochrome or fade paint.

Premium Paint and Finishes
Harley-Davidson CVO models feature exclusive paint colors and designs. The CVO models are also used to introduce new finish treatments as an alternative to traditional chrome.

  • CVO Fade Paint is an extremely complex treatment. Developed exclusively for Harley-Davidson, the fade effect goes from a lighter to darker shade as it moves higher on the motorcycle and is very carefully aligned on each piece of bodywork to create the illusion that the motorcycle is being lighted from below. This paint treatment relies on expertly programmed robotic application of multiple layers of paint.
  • Black Onyx is a finish featured on the exhaust of the darkest styling treatments offered for CVO Road Glide and CVO Street Glide models. This “physical vapor deposition” finish is applied over chrome. The finish was originally developed for mil-spec and jewelry applications. It’s very durable but also so thin that in bright light the underlying chrome is visible through the Black Onyx finish.

CVO Technology

  • NEW Boom! Box GTS infotainment system is standard on each 2019 CVO model.
  • Wireless Headset with Bluetooth interface to the Boom! Box GTS eliminates cords and enables the same functions as wired headset with premium sound quality. The headset has a range of up to one mile and can communicate with up to eight other compatible headsets. The CVO Limited model is delivered with two wireless headsets; the CVO Street Glide and CVO Road Glide models include a single headset.
  • The Tire Pressure Monitoring System displays current front and rear tire pressure on the  Boom! Box screen and issues an alert when tire pressure is low to warn the rider that tire pressure should be checked, or if a tire is losing pressure due to puncture.

High-Performance Engines
The Milwaukee-Eight 117 is exclusive to CVO models and features 117 cubic inch displacement, a high-performance camshaft and intake, an elevated 10.2:1 compression ratio and produces up to 125 ft. lbs. of torque. On 2019 models the Milwaukee-Eight 117 for CVO is identified by a bright Blaze Red band on the engine rocker boxes.

Premium Boom! Audio

  • CVO Street Glide: Six Boom! Stage II bi-amped speakers (paired in the fairing, lowers and saddlebag lids) with 150 watts per channel from three separate 300 watt amplifiers for 900 watts total power – the most outrageous factory-installed Harley-Davidson audio system designed to surround the rider in rich, clear sound.
  • CVO Limited: Four Boom! Stage I speakers (paired in fairing and Tour-Pak carrier) powered by a single amplifier and 75 watts per channel.
  • CVO Road Glide: Four Boom! Stage II bi-amped speakers (paired in fairing and saddlebag lids) with 150 watts of power per channel from two separate 300 watt amplifiers for 600 watts total power.

New Harley-Davidson FXDR 114

By | New Product News

New Harley-Davidson FXDR 114 Pours On Performance

A Dynamic Power Cruiser Combines Milwaukee-Eight Muscle  with Weight-Saving Aluminum and Composite Components

The new Harley-Davidson FXDR 114 motorcycle delivers moto-aggression with a technical edge. Like a drag racer crossed with a fighter jet, this unapologetic power cruiser brings a new level of all-out performance to the Harley-Davidson line-up. The FXDR 114 combines the unrelenting power of the Milwaukee-Eight 114 engine with the liberal use of new weight-saving aluminum and composite components. Every aspect of handling and performance is amplified.

“This motorcycle is really a blast to ride,” said David Latz, Lead Product Manager at Harley-Davidson. “The FXDR 114 surrounds the very capable Softail chassis with Milwaukee-Eight 114 power, premium front and rear suspension and a host of new weight-saving components and materials. This is a power cruiser that delivers exceptional ride and handling characteristics.”

Less than a month after announcing plans for future product in new-to-the-brand categories and a commitment to advance its heavyweight Touring and Cruiser models, the Motor Company introduces the FXDR 114 as the 10th Harley-Davidson model based on the Softail platform.

Focus on Weight Reduction
The aluminum swingarm achieves a 10.2-pound weight reduction (13.8 pounds vs. 24 pounds, or 43 percent less) over a steel Softail swingarm accommodating a 240 mm rear tire. Because the unsprung weight (weight located below the suspension) it has a significant impact on rear suspension performance, enhanced further by a lightweight 18-inch-diameter aluminum disc rear wheel. The 19-inch forged aluminum Ace front wheel is a light-weight design that features very thin spokes. The FXDR 114 seat and tail section are supported by a sub-frame of welded aluminum tubing, and the tail section is composite. This replaces a steel subframe, steel rear fender and aluminum fender supports used on other Softail models, for a weight savings of about seven pounds. Front and rear fenders are lightweight composite material.

Styled at the Strip

The FXDR communicates its commitment to all-out performance through visual design inspired at the drag strip, where the application of torque to pavement is sophisticated in its execution.

“The look of the FXDR 114 expresses its performance potential and highlights the technical features that set it apart from the rest of the Softail line-up,” said Brad Richards, Vice President of Styling and Design. “The drag-bike influence is strong with the raked and inverted front end, massive intake and exhaust, proportional contrast between the wheels, and the clipped tail section. But we made sure that purely technical elements like the aluminum swingarm, fully integrated digital instrumentation within the rider controls, and exposed external suspension adjuster are highlighted as well and help define this bike’s mission, which is pure performance, not just straight-line performance.”

A speed screen frames the LED headlamp and helps breaks the wind, while a stretched 4.4-gallon fuel tank exclusive to the FXDR 114 lengthens the profile of the motorcycle. A race-inspired chin fairing conceals much of the oil cooler. The tail section is clipped short in drag bike/stunter style to expose the 240mm rear tire. A solo seat flows seamlessly into the tail section. A cover on the top of the tail section can be removed to reveal a storage compartment within the subframe.

A molded composite rear fender is shaped to hug the tire and moves with it through the range of the suspension, so it becomes almost invisible when the FXDR 114 is in motion. A rear lighting module and license plate fixture is secured to an aluminum spar mounted to the left side of the swingarm, leaving the right side of the rear wheel dramatically exposed. The front and rear wheel are finished in contrast Gloss Black and Satin Black paint and detailed with bright “bolt heads” and laser-etched orange graphics in the rims.

Dynamic Chassis
A strong-and-rigid Softail chassis tuned to deliver responsive handling will reward assertive riders with thrilling agility when riding through twisting backroads and navigating congested urban traffic. The FXDR 114 features the Softail monoshock rear suspension with a single coil-over shock with internal free-piston technology and optimized angle between the frame and swingarm for enhanced travel and response. The shock is equipped with an external hydraulic pre-load adjustment knob to allow the rider to quickly and easily dial in optimal suspension performance for the prevailing load and conditions. Inverted 43mm forks stiffen the front end for improved response to steering input. Single-cartridge internal fork damping technology and a triple-rate spring respond quickly to inputs to help keep the front wheel planted for improved braking and handling performance. The FXDR 114 offers more lean angle than any other Softail model –  32.6 degrees to the left and 32.8 degrees to the right.

The dual 300mm front disc brakes provide strong braking performance with less lever effort. A confidence-inspiring Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) is standard equipment on the FXDR 114. High-performance Michelin Scorcher 11 front (120mm) and rear (240mm) tires contribute to optimized handling and braking performance. Secured by the deep solo seat, the rider grips aluminum clip-on handlebars in an athletic position over the tank. Information is presented by a compact digital display located within the speed screen.

Milwaukee-Eight Muscle
The FXDR 114 is equipped with the most-powerful engine offered in the Softail chassis, a Milwaukee-Eight 114 V-Twin tuned to pound out up to 119 ft. lb. of torque at 3500 rpm (U.S. model). The shape of the forward-facing air intake is inspired by the World Champion Screamin’ Eagle/Vance & Hines drag bikes and designed to enhance the airflow into the engine. The exposed air filter utilizes a new synthetic media that does not require oiling. A new 2-into-1 exhaust is tuned to emit a throaty rumble and shaped to maximize lean angle. Advanced four-valve cylinder head design, dual knock sensors, and precision oil cooling permit a 10.0:1 compression ratio for strong torque output – and thrilling acceleration – from off-idle to wide-open throttle. The engine is rigid-mounted to further stiffen a Softail chassis engineered to deliver precise response to steering and braking input. Dual counter-balancers cancel primary vibration at idle for improved rider comfort.

Riders craving even more power can upgrade the FXDR 114 with street-legal performance parts from Harley-Davidson Genuine Motor Accessories, including a Screamin’ Eagle Titanium Performance slip-on muffler that weighs 50 percent less than the stock muffler and produces an appealing, aggressive tone. Installation of the muffler achieves a Screamin’ Eagle Stage I performance upgrade when combined with a Screamin’ Eagle Air Cleaner Kit and the Screamin’ Eagle Pro Street Tuner. Stage I is the foundation for available Screamin’ Eagle Stage II, Stage III and Stage IV kits that can take Milwaukee-Eight 114 performance through the roof, with the assurance of an intact factory warranty when installed by an authorized Harley-Davidson dealer.

Complete LED lighting, including a Daymaker LED headlamp with LED signature halo plus LED rear lighting and LED turn signals, make the FXDR 114 more conspicuous in traffic and offer optimal lighting performance. Keyless ignition, the Harley-Davidson Smart Security System and a USB charging port are standard equipment.

The FXDR 114 is available in six color choices: Vivid Black, Black Denim, Industrial Gray Denim, Wicked Red Denim, Bonneville Salt Denim, and Rawhide Denim.

In 2019, the FXDR 114 will provide inspiration for the bodywork of the racing competition motorcycles campaigned by the world champion Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle/Vance & Hines racing team in the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series.
