EVOLUTION ENGINE HERITAGE The Evolution engine known in certain crowds as the Blockhead was first bolted to the frame of a Harley-Davidson motorcycle back in 1984. Born from legendary Shovelhead and Ironhead engines, the Evolution engine broke new ground in displacement innovation while maintaining the hunger for power, durability and proven reliability that The Motor Company was built on. EVOLUTION ENGINE INNOVATION Air-cooled and durable as hell, the 1200cc Evolution engine is yet another nod to the unwavering work ethic that drives advancements in motor technology at Harley-Davidson . Aluminum heads and cylinders lighten the load of the bike and improve air-cooling efficiency.

Bottom line: the rubber-mounted Evolution engine runs hard and rides smooth for thousands of miles so you can just worry about taking in the freedom of the open road.
