Harley Project Rushmore

Duration: 13:52

Everyone is excited about the Harley Project Rushmore Twin Cooled 103ci. The excitement does not exclude Bob, Mark, Dennis, and the rest of us at Fix My Hog. We couldn’t wait to get our hands on one of these bikes. Now, we want to show you what we’ve learned.

Form and Function Collide

In this video, Bob explains to us how this beautiful ride came to fruition and points out some of the many changes and upgrades you can expect to see when you, or one of your friends pulls up on one of these new Harleys. This motorcycle is the product of four years of research and rigorous testing. There are over 100 feature changes since the last generation of touring model and; coolest of all; Harley included the input of the general (riding) public in all of its new concept and development!

Water Cooled Harley?

This motorcycle is cooled by two small radiators, hidden, in the lower fairings. The cooling system is thermostatically controlled and cools the front and rear exhaust valves. We love the fact that Harley was able to cool this 103 and still keep its V Twin configuration.

One Finger

This bike was designed with the concept that everything should be accessible and controlled with a gloved hand. It has easy, access to the tour pak and saddlebags, joystick style controls, touch screen “boombox”; just to name a few.


Other changes/upgrades are: wider stance handlebars, complete connectivity between the receiver and your phone, voice recognition, GPS, painted inner fairing, “hydra clutch”, push button airflow through the fairing, 49mm fork tubes, Brembo brake calipers, trickle charge plug, outlet in tour pak, and LED lights. Dual Tread technology describes the tires that come standard on this m/c. That means; these tires have a harder compound in the center and a softer compound on the sides; for great control and feel, especially when cornering.

Go Far

This motorcycle was designed for people to be able to ride longer and farther than ever before. Look for more new videos to come as we get into fully servicing this new Harley Project Rushmore.

    Qui purchased a new 2015 Triglide Ultra and it’s all you stated and more. I’ve completed parades in 90deg heat and had no issues, 2 hrs at below 5mph, I was overheated but not the trike. The 103 has plenty of power and acceleration with a passenger too. I still have my 2006 Road King, and I can tell you the trike is all Harley, top quality, not for grandpa.

    There seems to be a misconception from import bike enthusiasts that Harley Davidson’s are outdated and behind the times. What they fail to understand is that cosmetically a Harley Davidson may look nostalgic but underneath the styling, Harley Davidson’s are quite modern and sophisticated. Another factor to remember is that Harley Davidson doesn’t implement technology because it looks neat or has a lot of bells and whistles. The technology is specifically designed to improve the product so the rider can have a more enjoyable and functional riding experience. More so than any other motorcycle brand, Harley Davidson much walk a fine line between technology and customer demand. But, there is room for both. Perhaps the best example of this would be my favorite model, the VROD. This is a very sophisticated, high performance bike but maintains the cruiser image Harley Davidson is so famous for. The VROD brought many people, particularly from Europe into the Harley Davidson family and that’s always positive for the long term health and wellbeing of the company.
