Harley-Davidson® treats cruising and touring motorcycles as a specialty. They're always looking for new upgrades to design, comfort, and power, which is why their bikes set new standards every single year. In 2017, they've done it once again with new touring suspensions, performance components from Screamin' Eagle®, and some of the best CVO™ upgrades imaginable on certain models. A few of these bikes are already out on the streets, including the Street Rod™, Road King® Special, and Roadster™, so don't wait a moment longer to hit the road with all-new parts and features! You can come test ride any or all of these hogs today at Crow River H-D® in Delano, MN.

The All-New Suspension

Every model carries a pretty good punch, but they also promise to keep you comfortable while wielding all that power. The front and rear suspension systems have been completely redesigned this year, with racing-style cartridge forks in front and rear emulsion technology. The back offers 15-30% more adjustment on the pre-load. And it's convenient too. You can simply turn a knob to set the pre-load at your preference, so every ride is customized for your liking.

Performance from Screamin' Eagle®

There's a lot of things to get excited about in a new motorcycle, but our favorite is probably an all new engine. Well, in 2017, Harley-Davidson® brings you just that. The Screamin' Eagle® Milwaukee-Eight® engine makes touring motorcycles more powerful than we've ever seen. This formidable V-Twin gets some models over 100 ft.-lbs. of torque, and the optional upgrades make them even better! How does a 24% torque increase with the Screamin' Eagle® Stage kit sound? The bike's relentless anyway, but try adding one of these custom packages if you want to dominate the road like never before.

Optional CVO™ Upgrades

The CVO™ Limited and CVO™ Street Glide mark this year's versions of Harley-Davidson's® Custom Vehicle Operations Models, and they come with their own special engine upgrade options. The Twin-Cooled Milwaukee-Eight® 114 motor brings these hogs to a class of their own regarding speed. But this power is only truly understood once you take them for a ride. There's also the Screamin' Eagle® Twin Cam 110B air-cooled V-Twin for the Pro Street Breakout™, which is every bit as beastly as every other Harley® engine out there.

The Cruiser Lineup

2017 was kind to Softail® and Dyna® as well, giving them class-leading power with the High Output Twin Cam 103 engine. Believe us when we say this responsive engine will surprise you every time. It's big, beautiful, and one for the record books.

This Year's Models

After talking about all these upgrades, you're probably impatient to try some of them out. Thankfully, like we mentioned earlier, most of them are already on the street! To name a few of the highlights, we've got the Road King® Special, Street Rod™, and Roadster™, all available at our dealership now!.

Road King® Special

The classic Road King® Special holds a special place in many Harley® riders' nostalgic hearts, so this year's new model calls back to these great bikes of old! It gives you that vintage, stripped-down boldness and timeless intensity that we've loved for so long, only this time, it comes with that brilliant Milwaukee-Eight® engine. You'll enjoy the old-school style on this hog without losing a bit of modern power.

The Street Rod™

Speed never looked so good. The stylish High Output Revolution X™ engine moves this beautiful bike swiftly down the road, where it's closely followed by nothing other than the jealous eyes of fellow riders. It's a Street® bike, which maneuvers roads like none others and keeps you controlled on piggyback reservoir rear shocks. Not to mention, the style's every bit as aggressive as the power, making every ride a showcase for your look.

New Roadsters™

The Sportster® lineup is worth looking forward to every year, and this year, you'll be especially eager to hop on the 2017 Roadster™. Its chopper rear fender and 1200 cc Evolution® V-twin engine gives you style with plenty of speed to match. Meanwhile, those inverted front forks are working hard, enabling your motorcycle to write with agile control and matchless comfort.

There's a lot to get excited about in 2017. Harley-Davidson® offers all-new lineups with plenty of versatile options. Whether you want to tour long distance or cruise on a shorter commute, Harley® has the perfect new bike for you, and we've got them all here at Crow River H-D®!
