Three Harleys among the first five test bikes!
With the Milwaukee-Eight, the Twin Cam and the Sportster engine, three different engine concepts from Milwaukee are among the top five on the top list of the leading German motorcycle magazine.
When a bike is moved by professional motorcycle journalists for about two years, gentle handling is a foreign word.
In the hard daily test routine, it is necessary to brave rain, snow and ice, to transport other riders on different routes day in, day out, and to endure merciless measurements of all vital functions more than once.
Since 1950, the strict field test of the German trade journal “Motorrad” has been testing the reliability and durability of machines in this way – since 1991 over a distance of a full 50.000 kilometers.
“It run and runs and runs and runs!”
In the past, the VW Käfer was the godfather of unconditional reliability, says “Motorrad”. Transferred into the here and now, the duration tested Harley-Davidson Heritage Classic 114 takes over the Käfer heritage. The problems that occurred were, for example, the rust deposit on the exhaust and the tail light bulb was doubled.
“Unbreakable, reliable, a long-running car.” This Harley model is rightly the new “reliability champion” in the eternal list of the best.
