W.A.R. Performance (short for Witt Advanced Racing Performance) was started by Mike Witt in 2009 as a company that pursued reliable performance upgrades outside the corporate constraints of the typical dealership.
Mike has a history with v-twin performance that stems back decades to 1987 when he was drag racing his instructor Kurt Heinrichs' 1968 88" stroker XLCH at Orlando Motor Speedway. His first dealership job came in 1988, and he was in the first class of Harley-Davidson Certified Master Technicians.
When it comes to performance, experience is key. In the early nineties Mike was building 100hp/100lb-ft of torque 80" Evo motors. A decade later he crossed the 120lb-ft of torque mark with a 95" version of the new twin cam motor. Fast forward again to a 130whp 1250cc V-Rod in 2008, a 140whp 113" Ultra. He has produced daily ridden, cross country reliable 120whp 103" motors, and even 200+whp supercharged 120".
Currently Mike works closely with leading companies in the industry to continue bringing new advancements to the American v-twin performance.
