MILWAUKEE, WIS., Aug. 19—In the largest scale new model launch in the company’s 110-year history, Harley-Davidson has announced its 2014 model year lineup.

Project RUSHMORE introduces technology and design enhancements that will recalibrate the expectations of the touring motorcyclist. Project RUSHMORE is the result of an entirely new way to produce motorcycles. In a process that invokes the voice of the customer throughout an accelerated development program, the ideas and dreams of thousands of motorcyclists are allowed to percolate with those of Harley-Davidson employees.
“Project RUSHMORE is a pure expression of our relationship with our customers and a shared passion for riding motorcycles, ” said Mark-Hans Richer, Harley-Davidson senior vice president and chief marketing officer. “It’s resulted in some outstanding innovations, but from day one we’ve been focused on taking the total rider and passenger experience to the next level. We get there together, we come together – to quote the Beatles – through a process that uses not just formal feedback, but the kind of input we get from listening to customers out on the road, in the real world, and then blends that with our engineering and styling expertise. For years at Harley-Davidson we’ve been saying that we ride with you. Project RUSHMORE elevates that devotion to a higher level.”
Eight new 2014 Harley-Davidson models including the Road King, Street Glide, Street Glide Special, Electra Glide Ultra Classic, Ultra Limited, Tri Glide Ultra, CVO Ultra Limited and CVO Road King feature innovative Project RUSHMORE-inspired enhancements. They slot into four customer-defined categories:
Control: Project RUSHMORE bikes pass faster, stop quicker and see farther at night, thus inspiring rider confidence. Each model features the new Twin-Cooled High Output Twin Cam 103 or the High Output Twin Cam 103 powertrains, Reflex Linked Brakes with ABS and Daymaker L.E.D. and dual halogen lighting.
Infotainment: New color-screen Boom! Box infotainment systems feature the first original-equipment voice recognition and touchscreen for music, GPS navigation and phone in motorcycling, with quality audio, Bluetooth connectivity, text-to-speech technology as well as support for intercom and CB communications in a single module.
Feel: Aerodynamics and ergonomics come together to improve comfort—from the new Batwing fairing with splitstream venting, which reduces head buffeting by 20 percent, to best-in-class ride for passengers with wider and deeper seats and new back and armrests.
Style: The form and the function of many components are improved—a reshaped Tour-Pak and saddlebags with convenient one-touch latches, sleeker fenders, lighter cast aluminum wheels and intuitive hand control switches.
