The foundation of the Draggin’ Bagger class is Harley-Davidson’s Screamin’ Eagle 120R engine, a fully assembled performance engine designed for off-road racing use. Assembled at Harley-Davidson’s Pilgrim Road facility in Menominee Falls, Wisconsin, the 120 cubic-inch V-Twin engine provides the capability for an awesome 135 horsepower and 137 lb-ft of torque at the rear wheel when equipped with a high-flow throttle body and injectors and tuned intake and exhaust systems.

Reserved for 1999-and-later Harley-Davidson Touring model motorcycles equipped with the 120R engine, the Draggin’ Bagger class features limited performance modifications to ensure low entry cost and a high level of competition. Original equipment frame, fairings, saddlebags and other bodywork are required, and limited modifications are permitted to the brakes, suspension, transmission and other components to maintain an externally stock appearing motorcycle.

“This is Harley-Davidson’s first time in several decades to offer a crate racing motor, and we’re excited to work with AHDRA to launch this new racing class to support the Screamin’ Eagle 120R engine,” said Tony Nicosia, Category Manager for Screamin’ Eagle Parts & Accessories. “Together we’ve created a class that allows even a novice team to enjoy affordable racing. We anticipate strong participation and some exciting action during the 2011 racing season.”

“AHDRA is proud to continue carrying the Screamin’ Eagle banner to the racing community, and we are excited to finally let the cat out of the bag on the 120R. This engine makes a great package when paired with a Harley-Davidson Touring bike that will economically put its rider in the saddle of a wheelie popping, 10-second racing machine,” said AHDRA’s Craig Tharpe.
