Well the 2104 Harley Davidson bikes are out! Check out the on-line commercial for Project Rushmore.  While I have only the commercial and their website to comment on, all I can say is…..some nice changes!  Some quick notes:

Lighting – looks like some of the bikes come standard with LED or Dual Halogen.

Slipstream Vent – looks like the batwing fairings now come with a center mounted vent.

Infotainment System – voice activated music, phone and GPS with device dock in dash.

Brakes – the front and rear ABS brakes are linked.

Engine – “Twin-Cooled High Output Twin Cam 103 Engine”. Now based in the statement in the video … (the underlining is mine)

“A select number of the Project RUSHMORE motorcycles are built around the new Twin Cooled™ High Output Twin Cam 103™ engine. Twin cooling cools the heads around the exhaust ports to deliver at or near peak performance under all operating conditions and temperatures. Higher compression ratio increases efficiency and horsepower. There’s also a 110 cubic inch version of this engine available in the CVO™ Limited. We’ve been building engines for 110 years. And we know from the smiles on the faces of our test riders, there’s never been an engine that feels quite this good.”

This tied with my earlier post  seems to indicate that we might have the 1st Harley touring bike with water cooled engines (maybe?)?  This feature is limited to the Tri-Glides and the Ultra Limited.

Each of the features listed above is available on select bikes check the Harley Davidson Website for detail.
