Outside of the sporty which got updated (balanced) in 2007, starting in 1999 the bigger bikes are either a “dyna” which is rubber mounted (Electra-glide, roadking, wideglide,superglide, all Dyna’s) and smooth other than at idle and even then pretty smooth, if not a dyna then it would be a “B” balanced motor (heritage softail, all-labeled Softail ) which both that I have ridden were every bit as smooth as a Goldwing. Not real sure about the new Milwaukee 8 or the Rushmore engines but I’ve been Told that they are smoother with a lot more power, the 107 in the sport glide is in that engine family.
The V-Rod with the Porsche Revolution engine was a great piece, very well done except for the stupid “C” shape riding position. In my opinion that engine should have been used in a standard bike something like the new Indian FTR which is a hoot to ride, very nice. The Revolution engine had a lot of potential. But the “faithful” never accepted it because of the Porsche connection. Idiots !
