All-new flagship of the Star line is designed to show and go like no other cruiser before it, with big power and great handling.
All-new 113-cubic-inch (1854cc) air-cooled pushrod V-twin produces great thrust at any speed.
Twin-bore downdraft electronic fuel injection ensures optimum engine efficiency and throttle response in the widest possible range of conditions.
Neo-streamline design, including the first seamless gas tank fitted to a Star, gives the Roadliner a completely distinctive look.
All-new long and low aluminum frame provides great looks and great handling, too, thanks to near 50/50 weight distribution on the front and rear wheels.
All New for 2006:
113-cubic-inch (1854cc) air-cooled pushrod 48-degree V-twin has the massive looks and performance to make the Roadliner the king of the Star family.
Four pushrod-activated valves and two spark plugs per cylinder provide optimum combustion efficiency along with classically beautiful engine architecture.
Plated cylinders and forged pistons cooled by oil jets provide outstanding reliability and long life. Twin counterbalancers keep things smooth but rumbly.
9.5:1 compression ratio and aggressive cam timing increase power output across the board
Computer-controlled, twin-bore, fuel-injection monitors multiple engine parameters to calculate perfect mixture under all conditions; a wide-angle 12-hole fuel injector provides excellent atomization.
Exhaust Ultimate Power valve (EXUP) inside the two-into-one exhaust system boosts torque in the 2500-3000-RPM range.
Special, NC processing of the cooling fins gives a jewel-like appearance to the engine as light hits it from different angles.
3300 RPM at 75 mph gives some idea of the Roadliner’s power and cruisability. Maximum torque is reached at only 2500 RPM.
Jewel-like fit and finish, and Star quality paint, chrome and attention to detail are evident all over the Roadliner.
New-design classic-clock style instrumentation complements Roadliner’s neo-retro look and includes analog speedometer, tachometer and fuel gauge along with digital twin tripmeters, odometer and diagnostics.
A sliding cover over the main switch gives a clean look when the Roadliner’s parked.
Bright multireflector headlight, LED taillight and amber turn signals behind clear lenses give a custom look.
Oxygen sensor and three-way catalyst reduce emissions and meet EPA 2006 requirements.
