Special, NC processing of the cooling fins gives a jewel-like appearance to the engine as light hits it from different angles.
3300 RPM at 75 mph gives some idea of the Roadliner's power and cruisability. Maximum torque is reached at only 2500 RPM.
All-new aluminum frame is light, rigid, and requires few welds. A light, controlled fill swingarm casting complements the bike's streamline style.
With 49.6 percent of its weight carried on the front wheel, the Roadliner has the weight distribution of a sportbike instead of the typical cruiser, and that means great handling.
46mm fork tubes wearing slant-cut stainless covers serve up an excellent ride and a sweet appearance.
