After 25 Years The Famous Kuryakyn Hypercharger Got A Successor. The Hypercharger ES.

When you hear Hypercharger™, you think Kuryakyn®. After the hot rod-inspired intake was introduced to V-twin enthusiasts more than 25 years ago, it arguably became the industry’s best-selling aftermarket air cleaner with hundreds of thousands of units sold to-date worldwide. Now, the journey has come full circle with the official introduction of the revolutionary Hypercharger ES.

Representing the evolution of one of the industry’s most iconic products, the Hypercharger ES showcases modern updates in both style and performance. The radical new design features state-of-the-art electronic butterfly engagement, delivering precise butterfly movement compared to vacuum-operated fluttering. An integrated servo motor that connects to the coil actuates and opens the butterflies with every twist of the throttle, creating an interactive experience between rider, air cleaner and motorcycle unlike anything available.

Air delivery is maximized through an all-new Kuryakyn-designed high-flow K&N® filter element. The larger surface area combined with an internal stinger design on the filter’s end cap results in approximately 10-percent more airflow, improved CFM rating, and increased horsepower and torque versus previous Hypercharger models. Third-party dyno tuning performed on a stock Harley-Davidson® 107-cubic-inch Milwaukee-Eight® Touring model produced an 8.5-percent horsepower increase and 3 percent more torque.*

The Hypercharger ES’ aggressively styled modular housing is constructed from high-quality A380 aluminum offered in three finish options. The modular design allows easy customization with Kuryakyn’s Classic Faceplate Kits (sold separately). These interchangeable faceplates feature a fully fluted design with laser-engraved Hypercharger ES emblem to completely alter the style in minutes.

Kuryakyn will have a limited amount of kits available for select Harley-Davidson Twin Cam® and Milwaukee-Eight models during the 77th annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. Visit Kuryakyn’s rally headquarters at the Black Hills Harley-Davidson vendor area in Rapid City, and be one of the first to run the revolutionary Hypercharger ES air cleaner.

Volume production for the Hypercharger ES is slated for early September with fitment for all ’99-’17 Twin Cam and ’17 Milwaukee-Eight models, as well as XL Sportster applications soon to follow. For more information, visit Kuryakyn.

    It may become a hit like the original Hypercharger.

    Hype is the only thing correct about the name (or product).

    The throttle body already has a butterfly, and at least it serves a purpose.

    This is such a cool intake, like a hot rod air scoop! The modern design looks more aggressive than the old one too! Too bad they are selling out as soon as they get these Hyperchargers in stock.

    8.5% more hp verified by third party dyno, congrats to Kury for backing up the claims. Yes, the butterflies are for show and kinda gimmicky, but they’re also kinda cool. Same as can be said for probably well over half the shit we do to our bikes. Big billet wheels and loud ass pipes that don’t increase power anyone?

    I dig it and these will sell very well.

    Hypercharger look so mega cool – you kinda want an excuse to get one. Think they will suit the Road Glide particularly well.

    In the end, the only thing they probaly do most effectively, is to make you filter element last longer. And as such gives you better performance for a longer period.

    Looks like great unit. Where can l enquire in South Africa (agent) and do they make a unit that fit on a Harley Breakout

    Think I would mount the packaging and bin the contents.

    I’ve pulled so many of these off bikes I’ve bought over the years. Ugly, heavy and useless. Any K&N filter with a bit more air hitting it is going to give you a little power bump over stock. No need to make your bike look cheap and cheezy with one of these lumps.

    Still think Kuryakyn came from a Man from UNCLE character.
    Weird.
