classic big cruiser sound and pulse characteristics.
Fuel injected—each cylinder is fed by its own injector spraying
into twin 36mm intake valves, while the twin bore design allows
the computer-controlled system to feed a precise amount of
fuel/air mixture to the engine. The result is strong, smooth and
seamless performance across the full range of engine rpm.

houses the fuel pump, for plenty of traveling range on the open
