Harley-Davidson has rolled out their latest line of heavyweight bikes and if you’re in the business of high-powered cruisers, you’re going to love what they have in store for you.
One of the newly launched bikes is the CVO Road Glide Custom, which features a combination of the model’s distinctive frame-mounted fairing with a slender, road-hugging profile.
It comes with plenty of unique features, including a smoked Wind Splitter windshield, a customized two-piece seat that comes with a removable pillion and color-coordinated stitching, brushed nickel skull medallions on the fuel tank and fairing, and a low-profile fuel tank console with an illuminated CVO graphic insert.
On top of that, you’ll also find a new "Heavy Breather" style air intake with a black anodized cover, a black ergonomically-designed, internally-wired handlebar, a 19" Contrast Chrome Agitator Custom front wheel, and an indoor storage cover with an embroidered CVO logo to go with a commemorative CVO ignition key and a customized tool kit.
There’s also a high-output, amplified Harman/Kardon advanced audio radio that includes CD/AM/FM/WB capabilities, delivering 100 watts per channel to a pair of five-by-seven-inch fairing-mount speakers and two-inch dash-mount tweeters. On top of that, the bike also comes with an 8GB Apple iPod nano connects via an interface located in the right-side saddlebag.
Other items of note with the CVO Road Glide Custom include three custom-color finishes with each one having a gloss black powdercoat powertrain, color-matched upper fork sliders, rear fender strut covers, and a license plate light cover.
Powering the CVO Road Glide Custom is a fuel-injected Twin Cam 110 V-Twin, the largest-displacement engine that’s being offered in a Harley-Davidson machine with a claimed peak torque of 122 lb/ft.
If you’re interested in the Harley CVO Road Glide Custom, the bike will come with a price tag of $30,699. Sadly, it’s going to come only as a limited production of 2,100 models, which means that if you want one, you’re going to have get yours as early as you can.
Harley-Davidson thought at the 2010 CVO Softail Convertible as to a limited-production custom motorcycle that will allow riders to customize it (without needing tools) depending on the type of ride they’re planning to take each and every single day. So, by adding or detaching key components, the bike turns out being adequate for all-day touring, two-up cruising or solo profiling.
Based on the belief that good looks shouldn’t affect functionality, the comfortable, modern suspensions are hidden under the chassis, allowing the Softail rear suspension to mimic the clean lines of a vintage hardtail frame.
Power comes from a massive Screamin’ Eagle Twin Cam 110B engine displacing 110ci (1803cc) and delivering an impressive 110 ft. lbs. of torque at 3000 rpm. This unit is rigid-mounted to the frame and coupled to a 6-speed Cruise Drive transmission. Does this sound like a Harley or what?
Harley-Davidson has just launched a limited edition run of the CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide for 2010 and their goal is to drift away from the self-created stylistical patterns. A simple look at their new high-end model is enough to see that chrome is almost completely absent. Instead, H-D uses no less than 185 unique black parts, components and accessories, not to mention the Crimson Mist Black / Dark Slate and Flame graphics base color.
Those expecting an all-new model must find that this is not the case. The bike is exclusive, but remains a Black version of the standard CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide. It is powered by the same Screamin’ Eagle Twin Cam 110 engine displacing 1803cc, developing 115 pound-feet of torque and mated to the same six-speed Cruise Drive transmission. As expected, the massive powerplant features both black and chrome.
Touring goodies such as a 160-watt CD/AM/FM/WB/MP3 Advanced Audio System by Harman-Kardon, CB and intercom, passenger audio with controls, cruise control and standard XM Radio as well as a Garmin Road Tech zūmo 660 GPS unit make life on board much more pleasurable.
The only sad part about this model is the fact that it is limited to 999 units and has an MSRP of $36,499. Read the full press release and enjoy the picture gallery after the jump.
