Confirmed: The Revival will use the Milwaukee-Eight 114 engine

Update: CARB documents obtained March 10, 2021 have confirmed the use of the larger M8 114 cu. in. motor.

Harley-Davidson announced its 2021 touring lineup last month, but we can confirm the company has one more model up it’s sleeve, and we’re not talking about the Pan America. Harley-Davidson’s 2021 model virtual presentation included a teaser image of a fuel tank console with the word “Revival” written on it. Motorcycle.com can now confirm that the Harley-Davidson Revival will be a 2021 touring model powered by the Milwaukee-Eight V-Twin engine.

The confirmation comes via the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency which certified the Revival alongside its returning touring models. The filing includes both the M-8 107 and 114 displacements, but Harley-Davidson typically reserves the larger engine for the Specials. Unless Harley-Davidson breaks away from this nomenclature, we can assume the 2021 Revival will use the same 107ci (1746cc) version of the Milwaukee-Eight as the Electra Glide Standard, Road Glide, Road King and Street Glide.

We don’t know when Harley-Davidson will announce the Revival. The company’s immediate focus is on launching the Pan America 1250 on Feb. 22, and Harley-Davidson will likely want to put enough space between its first adventure-touring bike and the Revival. We’re also getting to the point where manufacturers are announcing their first 2022 models, so Harley-Davidson may not want to wait too long.

Harley-Davidson is set to announce its year-end fiscal results tomorrow, along with the first details of the company’s new Hardwire business plan. This may include some details of the Revival.

    Poor hapless Hardly Ablesomes. All style with no substance.
    Question, does Harley even have engineers?

    I'm hoping to get a new FXR out of this, but I'm not gonna hold my breath...
