Nitro Harley motorcycles are high-performance drag racing motorcycles powered by nitromethane-fueled engines. They are known for their extreme power and speed, often reaching over 200 miles per hour (322 km/h) in a quarter-mile race. These motorcycles typically feature a V-twin engine design, with displacement ranging from 1,500cc to 2,300cc.

 

Key features of Nitro Harleys include:

 

  • Nitromethane Fuel: Nitro Harleys use nitromethane as their primary fuel source, which provides an explosive burst of power when ignited, making them much faster than traditional gasoline-powered bikes.

 

  • Wheelie Bars: To handle the immense power and torque, Nitro Harleys are equipped with wheelie bars to help keep the front wheel down during acceleration.

 

  • Long Wheelbase: A longer wheelbase helps stabilize the bike at high speeds and prevents it from flipping over during acceleration.

 

  • Custom Frame and Components: Nitro Harleys are built with custom frames and components designed to withstand the intense forces they experience on the drag strip.

 

  • Minimalistic Design: These motorcycles are built for one purpose – speed. They have a minimalistic design with no excess weight or features.

 

  • Spectacular Exhaust Flames: The nitromethane combustion produces spectacular flames from the exhaust pipes, adding to the visual spectacle of drag racing events.

 

Nitro Harleys are a thrilling and integral part of the drag racing world, offering a combination of power, speed, and noise that makes them stand out in the world of motorsports. We invite you to check them out up close and personal - see you at the races!
