Styling + Features

  • MINI-APE HANDLEBARS: 9-inch tall, 1.25-inch wide mini-ape handlebars so you can sit taller, feel more assertive, and ride more aggressively.
  • MILWAUKEE-EIGHT® V-TWIN ENGINE: A powerful, cool-running engine with crisp throttle response and a pure, soul-satisfying rumble.
  • BLACKED-OUT CUSTOM STYLING: This machine is end-to-end blacked-out, stripped-down bare muscle from the aggressive turbine wheels to the tapered mufflers.
  • STRETCHED SADDLEBAGS: A sleek look on the outside and roomy on the inside with more than enough space to stash your riding essentials. The lids open with a single touch of a hand.
  • CUSTOM BLACK TURBINE WHEELS: 19 inches of head-turning style in the front, 18 inches in the rear. Powerful blades extending all the way to the rim to create an eye-catching impact.
  • BLACK HEADLIGHT NACELLE WITH MATCHING TRIM RING: Big and commanding, boasting a darkness-defying headlight that ensures you’ll have no trouble seeing everything out there that needs to be seen.
  • RESPONSIVE SUSPENSION: High-performing front and rear suspension with easily hand-adjustable rear shocks put you in control of a plush ride.
  • REFLEX™ LINKED BREMBO® BRAKES WITH STANDARD ABS: The front and rear brakes are electronically linked to apply exactly the right amount of brake to each tire no matter the road condition. No matter how good you are, this will make you a better rider.
