An exciting new coffee-table book, HARLEY-DAVIDSON: ENGINES & EVOLUTION, by acclaimed travel writer and moto-journalist Christopher P. Baker, will be published at the end of this month in the United Kingdom and Europe. A U.S. edition will be available in April, 2022.

In this coffee-table book, sumptuously illustrated with 3-D graphics, Baker—the Lowell Thomas Award 2008 ‘Travel Journalist of the Year’—profiles more than a century of engines that define the Harley-Davidson marque, from the first 1903 single-cylinder production engine built in a backyard shed in Milwaukee to the 2021 water-cooled Revolution® Max V-Twin powertrain.

Plus, more than 45 distinct model variations are profiled in detail, including all the pertinent technical data… from the first F-head single and ‘Silent Grey Fellow’ to the FLHTKSE CVO Ultra Limited (the Rolls-Royce of the Harley line-up) and Harley’s latest coup, the 2021 Pan America adventure tourer.

Baker offers a complete guide to every major production engine ever built by the USA’s leading motorcycle brand.

Packed with technical data and specifications for all the engine families, the text examines key innovations in minute detail while capturing the spirit of more than a century of mechanical excellence that has come to embody the American Dream.

Superlative 3D illustrations showcase the engines including unique detailed close-ups that reveal their inner workings and the more than 45 bike model variations, making this book a must-have for every Harley-Davidson aficionado.
