Exclusive CVO™ Enhancements
All the quality. All the legacy of the Harley-Davidson name. Plus custom touches
and performance that distinguish you from every other bike on the road. Sure
there's a little vanity. Premium custom. Big, tricked-out wheels. Deep attention
to details. The perfect storm of engineering and style you'll only find on a
custom machine. And you'll spoil yourself with the accessories—from comfort to
electronics to chrome. But the real signature of a Harley-Davidson® Custom
Vehicle Operations™ motorcycle is the explosive power and sleek detailing of the
huge Twin Cam 110™ with Screamin' Eagle® engine badges. It's custom-built, not
just for anyone, but for true connoisseurs of the road.
High-Impact Paint and Graphics
Individually crafted and hand-finished paint and graphics come standard on all
Harley-Davidson® Custom Vehicle Operations™ motorcycles, balancing style and
premium appeal to create one-of-a-kind custom motorcycle masterpieces. The CVO™
Ultra Classic® Electra Glide® model offers three exclusive new color schemes,
all adorned with concentrated glass and mirrors and hand-painted "Thunderblade"
graphics highlights, for a dazzling, dramatic appearance. The 110th Anniversary
Edition model comes in a characteristic commemorative Diamond Dust and Obsidian
color finish. Skimping? The word's simply not in our vocabulary.
110th Anniversary Edition CVO™
To commemorate 110 years of epic road adventures, we've crafted the absolute
acme of custom style and premium features in our 110th Anniversary CVO™ models.
Our CVO™ Ultra Classic® Electra Glide® Anniversary Edition motorcycle goes to
the extremes of quality with unique top-of-the-line custom Anniversary
treatments, including: an ultra-premium Anniversary paint scheme; Midnight Pearl
Anniversary badging and medallions; a custom power train finish; and custom
seating with exclusive inserts. If you're looking for rare treasures, these are
the ultimate masterpieces of motorcycle art.
110th Anniversary CVO™ Gas Tank
Each Anniversary Edition Harley-Davidson® motorcycle is a unique masterpiece
marked as part of this historic celebration by its very own work of art: a 110th
Anniversary commemorative cloisonné medallion featuring the Harley-Davidson Bar
& Shield in bold black with Midnight Pearl finish. (Available only on CVO™ 110th
Anniversary Edition models)
110th Anniversary Serialization
Our Anniversary Edition bikes are exclusive and produced in limited quantities
and they proudly bear the proof of it: placed in a different location on each
model, this tastefully crafted cloisonné holds the Serialization Plaque that
displays the bike's Anniversary Edition production number, marking your ride as
an exclusive part of motorcycle history, one of a rare breed and a true one of
kind. (Available only on CVO™ 110th Anniversary Edition models)
New Slipstream Collection Controls
The new 2013 Slipstream controls add a touch of top-of-the-line custom to the
CVO™ Ultra Classic® Electra Glide® model. With a new design for 2013, the heated
hand grips, gear shift pegs, footboard inserts, brake pedal, highway pegs and
windshield-trim all feature that characteristic modern Slipstream look and
quality. It’s premium custom touches like this—stylish and comfortable—that set
our Custom Vehicle Operations™ models on a higher level.
GTX® Saddlebags and Tour-Pak®
These injection-molded hard bags have room for 2.26 cu. ft. volume of long-haul
luxuries and a perfect surface for showing off some premium paint. Even better,
these saddlebags open from the top, so your gear won't end up spilled all over
the highway. They keep your fancy unmentionables dry, and the color-matched
latches won't corrode in bad weather. And when you're off the road, one common
key starts the bike and gives you access to your saddlebags, keeping your
pockets as uncluttered as your bike's refined design. The premium Tour-Pak®
carrier adds to the luxury look and gives you even more space to pack gear for
the road. And we add another layer to the mix with exclusive Custom Vehicle
Operations™ saddlebag and Tour-Pak® carry-out liners. Dual-direction zippers for
more access. Side pockets for your quick-reach items like cell phones, keys and
wallet. Rubber bottoms that keep the insides dry and clean, d-rings that let you
clip on attachments, and shoulder straps for easy transport.
Color-matched Wraparound LED Running
and Brake Taillight
The back end of the CVO™ Ultra Classic® Electra Glide® model demonstrates once
again the premium style and innovative engineering you'll find with the Custom
Vehicle Operations™ at Harley-Davidson®. The taillight features an integrated
color-matched wraparound brake light for a clean look. And with the LEDs, you
get additional style, increased visual footprint at night and long-lasting
Chrome Dual Exhaust
The premium custom look goes the distance on the CVO™ Ultra Classic® Electra
Glide® model with the chrome dual exhaust. Featuring 4-inch touring mufflers,
chrome billet end caps with black spears and chrome touring exhaust shields.
Relish in the rumble and performance of these high-end pipes.
Mirror Chrome Chisel Custom Wheels
Aggressive yet balanced, every element of the CVO™ Ultra Classic® Electra Glide®
model is painstakingly designed to deliver the most luxurious riding
experience—and that includes the chrome chisel wheels with matching open rotors.
With a 17-inch front wheel and a 16-inch in back, this Ultra boasts smooth,
nimble handling no matter where your journey takes you.
Hand Finished Fuel Tank
Harley-Davidson® fuel tanks are finished by hand—that's what makes them stand
out from the competition. Their seamless design and unmatched style are unique
among all motorcycles on the road. The tanks are one of the first and last
things people notice when they lay their eyes on a Harley-Davidson®
motorcycle—so we make it worth their time. And a classically styled, bold
six-gallon fuel tank doesn't just give you a bigger canvas for premium or custom
paint; it holds six gallons of go so you can eat up a lot more road between pit
Twin Cam 110™ Engine Heritage
The knowledge of what makes an engine truly move a rider runs deep at The Motor
Company, and it was put to good use when we created the Twin Cam 110™ engine. We
sweated bullets perfecting every cubic inch, pushing design and technology
forward. And we did it all without compromising one bit of Harley-Davidson's
unique styling. Evolved, yet carrying on the legacy of the Flathead,
Knucklehead, Panhead, Shovelhead, Evolution® and Twin Cam 88® engines that came
before. The performance and durability are a direct result of the untold miles
logged on the V-Twin since 1909, and the proud heritage that comes from a
century's worth of commitment to life on two wheels.
Twin Cam 110™ Engine Innovation
Fire up the Twin Cam 110™ engine and feel the low-end torque unleashed. The
colossal 110™ cubic inches provide seemingly endless torque with
adrenaline-pumping pull through all six gears. Boasting the largest-displacement
V-Twin engine by Harley-Davidson, the Twin Cam 110™ engine produces 118 ft. lbs.
of torque at 3750 rpm. Six speeds. A strong driveline and a low cruising rpm
couldn't feel better.
Pure Harley-Davidson® Styling
Feast your eyes on the Twin Cam 110™ with Screamin' Eagle engine badges and
there's no mistaking its roots. This is authentic Harley-Davidson style through
and through with an attention to detail you won't find from any other motorcycle
company. Granite heads and cylinders feature machined cooling fin tips and are
highlighted by chrome rocker covers. Exclusive to Custom Vehicle Operations™,
the granite powertrain and Twin Cam 110™ badging are unapologetically
distinguished. (The 110th Anniversary Edition CVO™ Ultra Classic® Electra Glide®
model's engine comes with a custom black and chrome power train with gloss black
covers.) It's a jewel machined out of metal. Pure. Dripping with power. From the
classic edge of the cooling fins to the clean lines of cases and covers—the Twin
Cam 110™ engine makes an ironclad statement to holding on to what's right and
staying true to what satisfies the rider.
Six-Speed Cruise Drive®
You want a ride that rumbles—not
begs for mercy—when you lean on it a little. The Six-Speed Cruise Drive®
transmission provides smooth, quiet shifting and reduces engine speed on the
highway, so you get a better match between engine RPM and road speed and road
speed. And the Isolated Drive System makes acceleration flow in a smooth, steady
stream from your wrist right down to the pavement. It's a rare ride when a bike
responds like this, and a low growl goes a long way when you're opening up the
Ventilator' Intake with Screamin'
Eagle® 110™ Insert
Everything about the Twin Cam 110™ Engine is a testament to the premium styling
and performance you get with a limited Custom Vehicle Operations™ motorcycle.
Right smack between the engine jugs rests the high-flow 'ventilator' intake with
high-flow filter element, back plate, diamond-cut, charcoal Screamin' Eagle
badge and protective rain sock (or Midnight Pearl inserts on the 110th
Anniversary Edition). Your bike will breathe easy while the increased air flow
boosts the raw power. Unique and exclusive. That is what Custom Vehicle
Operations is all about.
Road Tech zumo® 660 Navigation
You may know where you're headed, but this little dandy helps you get more out
of every mile. The quick-mount cradle makes it easy to mount and detach and it
plays nice with the bike's tight lines. Designed by bikers for bikers, its large
control-icons are glove-friendly, and it's preloaded with City Navigator® NT
street maps and markers for H-D® dealers, motels, restaurants, fuel, ATMs and
anything else you might need while out on the road.
When it comes to the CVO™ Ultra Classic® Electra Glide® model with optional ABS,
"stopping power" has a double meaning. We've incorporated the components of our
ABS within the wheel hub without sacrificing any of the bike's iconic custom
style, so you'll still turn heads with a clean, streamlined design. More
importantly, though, you get certainty in the saddle knowing your bike's going
to behave when you need it.
Tour-Pak® Luggage-Mounted 12V Power
Whether you need a quick charge for your cell phone or dinner from a hotplate on
a lonely stretch of road, knowing you've got 15 amps of power to get through the
day or night goes a long way. And don't worry about pesky rain spoiling your
power supply—the spring-loaded cap keeps the receptor dry and free of road muck.
Electronic Cruise Control
If you're ready to take Touring to the next level, the cruise control feature
will help you settle in for the long haul. Get the comfort of the cruise without
the cables cluttering up your handlebar. Our electronic throttle control
technology makes it possible to have the best of both worlds.
Artfully Hidden Technology
Harley-Davidson leverages the latest in technology without compromising style
and function. That means we hide electronics. The whole wiring harness is
skillfully routed behind the jewels of the bike—the tank, engine and all the
other eye-popping features you want to see. It's just another way The Motor
Company goes the extra mile to give its bikes that premium, top-of-the-line fit
Hand controls on a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle are incredibly intuitive. The
turn signals are self-canceling and, based on the speed and angle of the
motorcycle, they know how long to stay on. Engaging the controls quickly becomes
second nature so you can focus less on turning off your signal and more on
basking in the freedom of the ride.
iPod® Port (iPod® Included)
Just having the juice to let loose isn't enough to call this system custom. It's
your tunes that tell the story of your life on two wheels. With an iPod® dock in
the right-hand saddlebag, a module integrated into the radio, and the intuitive
controls right at your fingertips, the music is now yours, and that story is
yours to write. We'll even throw in an exclusively-designed 8GB iPod® Nano.
Harman Kardon® Audio with BOOM!™
Naturally, the king of the road gets some royal extras. When it comes to hearing
your tunes or just keeping your own chatter free and easy, the premium Harman
Kardon audio system has it all: 4 speakers (2 up front and 2 in back) with an
amplifier that distributes 40 watts per channel, an AM/FM receiver, XM Satellite
Radio capability, CD and MP3 player—even an intercom and CB. It's loud, it's
proud and yeah, it might as well go to 11. Plus, the system's BOOM! Audio
High-Performance BOOM! Bagger speakers with customized equalization for BOOM!
audio, and added BOOM! Audio Bass Booster Tour-Pak® Ports will have you blasting
deep bass as you're booming down the boulevard. Sure, that's a lot of boom, but
we figure you can handle it.
Confidence. Control. High-performance dual disc Brembo® brakes offer consistent
stopping power. The 4-piston front and rear calipers with dual front rotor brake
system is state of the art and top of the line. It's just another way The Motor
Company puts a high level of detail into their bikes to give you peace of mind
throughout your journey.
Tuned to Be Ridden
Harley-Davidson® motorcycles are different than any other bike out on the road.
There's a balance to them. The steering, the maneuverability—it's all in
concert. And each Harley-Davidson® model is tuned differently to create a unique
riding experience for each individual no matter which bike they swing their leg
over. Let's face it, we didn't get to where we are by being like everyone else.
Custom Suspended Dual Control Heated
Seat with Passenger & Rider Backrest
Need help convincing someone to let you buy your CVO™ dream bike or come touring
with you? This is for them. With its suspended, dual control design, this custom
seat with leather inserts (on the standard model) offers the ultimate in touring
luxury for rider and passenger, mile after mile. It sits low and it's trimmed in
at the thighs for ultra-comfortable long-hauling. Its suspension feature acts as
a secondary shock absorber. The embroidered H-D Bar & Shield passenger backrest
is plush and cozy, with adjustable lumbar support. With all that plus in-seat
heating, even the most finicky hangers-on will be happy to keep on going.
Heated Slipstream Collection Hand
When the chill gets at you, just having a little heat would be nice enough. But
this is a Harley-Davidson® Custom Vehicle Operations™ motorcycle and we're all
about the details. Our heated Slipstream Collection hand grips have six
settings, so you can easily adjust on the fly for the heat you need with the
versatility and control you've come to depend on.
Full-Length Footboards with Extended
Heel Shift Lever
Your boots were made for riding, in comfort, and any way you see fit. Our
full-length footboards boast a tried and true design that's stood the test of
time and rubber isolation that spares you from vibration. New for 2013, we've
added even more comfort with a redesigned extended reach heel shift lever that
makes getting through the gears quick and easy and gives your foot more room on
the left-side board. Plus, height adjustable passenger boards add another level
of comfort for your riding partner.
Welcome to the crossroads of pure Harley-Davidson® style and smart engineering.
The 2-1-2 exhaust helps direct heat away from the rider and passenger, while
providing ample performance, and signature Harley-Davidson® rumble, and big
Engine Idle Temperature Management
Our motorcycles are built to be ridden. A lot. So that means that rider comfort
is top of mind. Always. The Engine Idle Temperature Management System (EITMS)
feature shuts off fuel to the rear cylinder when the bike is at idle and the
engine reaches a certain temperature, so it can cool off as the engine idles
only on the front cylinder. Best part, you can easily turn this feature on or
off yourself whenever the bike is stopped.
