AMSOIL Excels in V-Twin Torture Test


Extreme heat is the biggest enemy for a powerful, air-cooled V-twin engine, like those found on most Harley-Davidson* motorcycles. In fact, when designing its latest V-twin engine platform – the Milwaukee Eight* – Harley asked riders what they wanted from its newest engine. Two themes emerged: more power and less heat.


To test AMSOIL Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil in the latest V-twin technology, we purchased a 2019 Harley-Davidson Street Bob equipped with a 107-c.i. Milwaukee Eight engine and subjected it to 1,000 miles of extreme-heat testing on the dyno.


To see the results, read the August AMSOIL Magazine and check out the V-Twin Extreme Heat Torture Test video.
