Harley-Davidson brought together two of its best subcategories – the Limited family and CVO line – to field the 2022 CVO Road Glide Limited.
This machine sits at the tippity-top of the food chain with the best of just about everything the MoCo has to offer as far as touring goodies go along with the largest production Big Twin to date.
Outpriced only by the CVO Tri Glide that shares the same red flame paint job, the CVO Road Glide Limited looks a lot like its non-CVO cousin, but the devil is in the details.
The speedo and tach each have their own analog gauges just above the handlebar clamp, but all of the top-shelf fandanglery comes shoehorned into the 6.5-inch color TFT display.
Ride metrics, navigation, and weather are available on board, plus it manages the Boom! Box GTS music options with Rockford Fosgate yummygoodness in the speakers.
Hard bags come stock with liners for quick loading/unloading, and join with the Pak for a total of 4.7 cubic-feet of secure dry storage.
As for the storage in the fairing lowers, you can stop trying to pry the cover off. That storage was traded off to make room for the twin-cooling equipment.
Factoring in all the metrics, you have a very stable ride that tracks well in a crosswind with low-effort steering corrections.
Mid-mount foot controls and medium-lift handlebar makes for a comfortable, upright riding position for most average body types.
Lean-sensitive ABS joins with H-D's Enhanced Electronic Linked Braking to help you safely use the great braking power afforded by the 300 mm discs all around.
Harley's Hill Hold Control finishes out the brake goodies by holding the brake for you so you can safely but both feet down at stops on grades.
The Milwaukee-Eight 117 has the largest displacement and produces the most factory-installed torque available to date in a Harley-Davidson production motorcycle.
With 125 lb-ft of torque at 3,500 rpm and 105 hp, the CVO Road Glide Limited has strong roll-on just about anywhere in the rev range.
Standard-equipped Cornering Riding Safety Enhancements also include cornering enhanced systems in the traction control system, as well as drag-torque slip control system, vehicle hold control, and tire pressure monitoring system.
MSRP starts at $44.9k for Dante's Red; add $3k for Wicked Orange Pearl or Hightail Yellow Pearl.
