Harley-Davidson is always keen to respond to input from its loyal consumer base, and in an effort to answer their demands for a more powerful option to the popular late-model touring bikes, The Motor Company has announced it will be offering a new 121-hp Screamin’ Eagle 131ci (2,147cc) Crate Engine.
These more powerful, high-revving lumps can be easily swapped out in any 2017 or newer Touring model equipped with the Milwaukee-Eight oil-cooled or Twin-Cooled engines.
“Our adrenaline-seeking riders asked for thrilling power and torque with reliability,” Harley-Davidson Product Manager James Crean said. “The Screamin’ Eagle 131 Crate Engine delivers exactly that. Developed by the Screamin’ Eagle performance team and factory-assembled at Harley-Davidson Powertrain Operations to ensure the highest quality standards, this high-performance engine is genuine Harley-Davidson.”
If this sounds like an upgrade you’re willing to perform, you’ll be happy to hear the Screamin’ Eagle Milwaukee-Eight 131 Crate Engine runs $6,195 for the oil-cooled version, and $6,395 for the Twin-Cooled. The Screamin’ Eagle Milwaukee-Eight 131 engine will be available in two finish options as well: Black and Chrome or Black and Gloss Black. However, it will not fit any H-D Trike models
