2024 Harley-Davidson Road Glide Engine Specs & Powertrain

The signature big twin engine on the 2024 Harley-Davidson Road Glide gets a big upgrade for the new model year — literally. Compared with the Milwaukee-Eight® 107 on the 2023 model year, the Milwaukee-Eight 117 engine on the 2024 model year uses its larger displacement to make 19 more horsepower and 19 more pound-feet of torque. In addition to the boosted power output, the engine on the 2024 model year is slightly more fuel efficient than the outgoing power plant.

Another new feature of the Road Glide engine is its liquid-cooled cylinder heads which aim to make your rides more comfortable when you’re riding at lower speeds. Above the engine, a 6-gallon gas tank fuels your rides, and a 2-1-2 dual exhaust system delivers the soul-stirring rumble you’re looking for from your new Harley®. The Road Glide rolls on eye-catching black contrast cut wheels — a 19-inch wheel on the front and an 18-inch wheel on the rear — and Dunlop® tires.

See the engine specs for the Road Glide in the accompanying chart.

Miles melt away with the potent Milwaukee-Eight V-Twin 107 engine fitted to the 2023 Road Glide.
