can you believe that engine from the beast will be fitted to a dualie?

That is like Toyota launching a towncar with a 5lt V-8 turbocharged engine. Any point?

bragging rights of 3rd gear power wheelies, can't think of much else

It doesn't wheelie in any gear.
Traction control??

So, after I told the Zambesi Harley dealer that Harleys are nice but very slow the sales people at Harley phoned me to come and test a very special Harley Davidson that they have in stock.

Something I recently learned is that you get CVO models with 1800cc engins.. These models are basically the tuned up harleys only produced in small numbers worldwide. Well, the one I rode, wasn't one of them. The one I tested was basically a tuned up CVO model.. :peepwall:

Any case, the bike below has a special imported 2000cc engine with special filters, pipes and ECU tuning.

Well, what can I say, this bike is defintely not only turning fuel into noise, it is really really fast and will eat my KTM 990 R up to probably 160km/h or more.. :o

I was really surprised, but yes this is apparently one of the fastest Harleys in South Africa. But it has a price tag of R195,000 for a 2008 model.

So how fast did you go with the HD?  :peepwall:  :ricky:

Somewhere around 200km/h and I think it was 4th gear.. Then my vision started to blur from my vibrating adventure helmet and I was forced to slow down... :peepwall:

Ok, I googled a bit, apparently depending on the tuning these 2000cc engines makes anything from 110hp- 130hp BUT a bit more than 200nm of torque.. :o

No wonder it felt stronger than my KTM.. :peepwall:

A CVO model is generally a 110 cubic inch motor,which is 1800cc. When you say 2000cc you are talking about a 120 cubic inch motor. Pretty rare in this country,but a mate has one in Langebaan.
It is basically a race motor,and thus you only get a 9000 mile warranty. Highly tuned and fun but not something you want to go touring on. Not saying you can't ,but given the lifespan of the motor not the wisest thing to do. Expect to pay about R80k for replacement motor.

Ok, cool. It has 120R written on the side of the engine.., so yes, 120ci, it did pull exceptionally well..

One of the fastest Harleys in South Africa.

With those brakes? (What brakes ??? :lol8: ) Stopping performance is probably comparable to what my 1980 CBX had to offer ::)

I think if I get a muscle bike I'd rather go for a VMAX :biggrin:

So for all that extra money, you get a 2 litre engine with a very limited warranty that makes about as much power as a stock Suzuki M109R, which comes with a full warranty and a bulletproof engine.

Haha, yes.. If I get a muscle bike it would probably also be a vmax or triumph rocket, but this harley... Never.

Makes sense, doesn't it?.. :peepwall:

Ok, to be serious, you can buy a brand new Triumph Rocket with a 2300cc engine for the same money that is apparently very reliable..

So, I don't foresee that they will sell that Harley in the next few weeks.. But I might be wrong.

DITTO...... I rode the VMAX at when it was launched and the people back then from Linex warned it drops a R1 to 200km/h no hassle, so you need to hang on TIGHT. :biggrin: I too would rather go for MADMAX than the HD as I like a bit of speed with everything to go..... :thumleft:

HD's do not float my boat
So the 2000cc going to outpace a KTM? in the dirt? don't think so
Yes it probably can go fast but can you hang on for any length of time? seeing you're acting like a parachute.
You will be turning petrol into noise at a faster rate and costing you more

That 2000cc is really faster on pullaway than my KTM. Remember it has more horsepower and a lot more newton meters than the ktm..

And is your dirt question rhetorical?  :peepwall:.
