Bigger is better. the American way, and for 2011 America’s leading motorcycle made Big Twin engines for models a little bit bigger—and

For the 2011 standard models (non-CVO models), H-D has unveiled the Cam 103, an over-bored version of the TC96. The new engine powers of Harley¹s top-flight baggers, them the all-new FLTRU Glide Ultra. Only The Company¹s exclusive CVO line tuned for reports on those models) with their engines offer more among bikes wearing the Bar logo.

The new TC103 is a result of increasing the bore from 3.750” to

But there’s a method to Harley’s madness for model year that should find among Harleyphiles who feel bigger is, indeed, better. You can the 103-inch engine package on other Touring models and FLTRX), too. Known as the Pak, customers can upgrade to the larger engine, or stick the TC96 for their bikes.

The Pak option also includes ABS braking system), the Smart System with hands-free and disarming functions, and exclusive emblems for the derby cover and air

Now for the even better news: the Power Pak costs $1,995, a when you consider that the for upgrading a standard 96-cubic-inch is about that for parts and alone. Think of the ABS and security as a bonus. Ditto for the engine ID

Owners who opt for the Power Pak package feel another bonus they fire up their engines. Harley rates the peak torque at 102 ft. lbs. at rpm—about a 9.6% gain the 96-inch motor—so there’s power on tap for leveling steep or overtaking those pesky that swagger and sway petrol-powered pachyderms along our highways.

Interestingly, the price for the Pak equates to about 10% over the of both eligible models, so you much get what you pay for in terms of torque per dollar spent. And in mind that torque, not translates to a rewarding ride for long-distance riders packing gear.

And speaking of long-distance riding, Glide Ultra customers be disappointed in what they’re to once they settle the newly formed seat for an excursion. In fact, all the Touring have re-shaped seats for comfort. In addition, the sculpted for the Ultra models (Road and Electra Glide) offer lower back support, and a forward section makes it for riders to place their firmly on the pavement during

Other comfort features can be in the Road Glide Ultra’s fairing lowers, passenger and electronic cruise control. acoustics are improved for the Harman-Kardon Audio System thanks to speakers (two in the frame-mounted two on the Tour Pak assembly), plus a CB/Intercom system so you can link to or your passenger while the miles.

Like the rest of the line, the Road Glide rides on Dunlop’s D407 rear tire that was exclusively for Harley’s big rigs. The construction offers longer-life tread compound with shoulder compound for improved grip. The rear wheel Isolated Drive System helps control vibration and under all riding conditions,

But make no mistake, the centerpiece for the new (as well as the Road King and the Electra Glide Ultra the latter of which we tested ), is the 103-inch engine.

. the centerpiece for the new is the 103-inch engine.

Which the question: why doesn’t Harley-Davidson all of the Big Twin line with bigger and better engine? question, and when asked, one spokesman merely smiled.

the years Harley’s marketing have favored introducing a upgrade such as this on one or two and then coming back in a model year with the included across the board. So if history is any indication, speculation to the obvious, and that’s that the will be standard fare on all Big models for 2012.

After all, bigger is It’s the American way. And always follows the American
