Features and Benefits
Project RUSHMORE - Engine
As every rider knows, the engine is at the heart of the experience of riding a
motorcycle. They amount of torque and horsepower it delivers over the RPM range
is in direct proportion to the feeling it gives you when you roll on the
throttle. We know what riders want from a motorcycle engine because we’ve been
building them for 110 years. Project RUSHMORE gave us the opportunity to dial it
in just right. We conducted thousands of road tests with real riders giving us
feedback to build the next iteration of the legendary Harley-Davidson® engine.
The consensus was: We want more. More low-end torque, more passing power, more
perfection in the tone of the exhaust note, more of the feeling we ride a
motorcycle for. So we built the engines that deliver it. We’re proud to unveil
the next level of Harley-Davidson® V-Twin engine. And prove once and for all,
the customer is always right.
Pure Harley-Davidson Styling
Feast your eyes on the Twin Cam 110™ engine 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™engine badging are
unapologetically distinguished. 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.
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.
Six-Speed Cruise Drive® Transmission
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 road ahead.
Ventilator Intake with Screamin' Eagle® Badge
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. 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.
New Boom!™ Box 6.5GT Radio
Let’s start with the big news: 25% more volume for your tunes. The new Boom!™
Box 6.5GT Radio puts out 75 watts per channel at 1% distortion and features a
factory-tuned, optimized equalizer that pumps out more power and can be played
louder while maintaining the clarity of your sound. And the new speed tuning
system delivers more than just volume changes at different speeds. It changes
the level of bass and treble to dial-in the best sound, whether you’re running
at stately pace down the strip or going hell for leather down an open stretch of
road. How do you like the sound of a Harley® motorcycle now?
New 6.5-inch Full Color Touch Screen Display
This 6.5-inch full color touch screen puts all your information in front of you
bigger than ever. Modern graphics, colors you can dial in, and auto and manual
dim. Design to sit stylishly inside your fairing, it takes screen technology to
a new level of Harley-Davidson functionality. This is more than you expect, but
when you’re going all the way, it’s everything you deserve.
BOOM!™ Audio SiriusXM® Satellite Radio
Even when you end up in places where radio towers don’t reach, your favorite
music, sports, talk and news are along for the ride on the CVO™ Limited model.
BOOM!™ Audio SiriusXM® radio is standard. You’ve got over 175 digital channels,
and coverage from coast-to-coast. Which means you won’t hit that point where the
signal starts to fade, the sound gets full of static and you have to start
scanning for new stations. Instead, you just keep enjoying the song and the
ride. You can also sign up for additional Specialty Services through Sirius XM,
like graphical weather overlay, forecast, traffic and nearby fuel prices. You
get all of these services at no additional charge for the first three months.
After that, you can sign up for any or all of them through Sirius XM BOOM!™
Audio is the ultimate. And this is the ultimate BOOM!™ Audio.
ProjectRUSHMORE - Confidence
Here are some of the innovations The Rider Project led to: the new Reflex™
Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Linked Brakes, new dual halogen and LED
headlamps and fog lamps, brighter Tour Pak® lighting, brighter turn signals,
brighter brake lights, and a new steering head with stiffer front forks.
Locked-up tires are now history even when there’s wet pavement. We’ve made it
feel even better to lean your way through a turn. Now you can see better. And
we’ve made you more conspicuous to the cage-driving public. Because one thing we
all agree on is this: Bikes that work better make riders who ride better. Take a
ride. See how good you can be.
Daymaker™ LED Headlights and LED Fog Lamps
For those who regard darkness as an invitation to go farther, the Daymaker™ LED
headlight with LED fog lamps will light the way. With 2,136 powerful,
daylight-simulating lumens that bathe the dark road in natural light, a
shoulder-to-shoulder spread of 160 feet and a 450-foot punch, the night is yours
to take with full confidence. Because not all of us look for an exit when day
turns to night.
Reflex™ Linked Brakes with Anti-lock Braking System
No doubt about it, there are times riding when you need to haul things down in a
hurry. And you don’t get to pick those times. Or decide whether or not they
occur when you’re on a flat, smooth, dry, perfect new stretch of pavement.
That’s why our touring models feature new Reflex™ anti-lock braking (ABS) with
dynamically, electronically linked brakes. ABS turns a locked up front wheel or
a rear wheel skid into a relic from riding’s history. And the front and rear
brakes are electronically linked to provide exactly the right amount of brake to
each tire no matter what the road condition is. No matter how good you are, this
will make you a better rider.
New Ergonomically Designed Hand Controls
It’s hard to enjoy the ride or keep your eyes focused on what’s coming down the
road when you’re fussing and bothering with the switches on your handlebar. So
we’ve worked over the hand controls on our new touring bikes with as much
passion as we’ve worked over our new engine. We made the shape more ergonomic
and located and angled them to fall right under your thumbs. We’ve added
left-hand cruise for easy activation, new toggle switches to control
infotainment functions, an easily locatable trigger switch to control and scan
through functional readouts. And we’ve improved the feel to give you a
confidence-inspiring click at every push of a button. Even the dash panel switch
gets better. And it’s all prewired for parts and accessories, which even lets
you customize with less fuss and bother.
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.
New Steering Head and Front Forks
Whether it’s a big sweeping curve or a set of tight turns, getting through the
corners just got better. We stiffened up the front end, increased the fork
diameter to 49mm and added new steel ball bearings, with lubricant contained
inside to keep contaminants out for durability. The responsiveness is dialed in.
Bullet Turn Signals
We go end to end and top to bottom to give the Limited the clean, tight, sharp,
iconic look and feel that is only befitting of a top of the line
Harley-Davidson® touring machine. The finishing touch – bullet turn signals.
Sleek and modern, yet a timeless classic.
Chrome Dual Exhaust
The premium custom look goes the distance on the CVO™ Limited 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.
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™
Limited 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. Skimping? The word's simply not
in our vocabulary.
Color-matched Wraparound LED Running and Brake Taillight
The back end of the CVO™ Limited 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 light.
New Tank and Fender Badges
This isn’t just a motorcycle. It’s a work of art, born out of passion,
creativity and long days, late nights and refusing to be satisfied until every
detail was perfect. When we added the signature badges, we did it with metal.
Nothing else would be right on this masterpiece.
Our design philosophy can be summed up pretty simply: form follows function, but
both report to emotion. This new airbox is a prime example of that. It’s the
most functional airbox we’ve ever put on a Harley-Davidson® touring bike. It
let’s the engine breathe better for more power, but it’s also designed to give
you more leg room and provide better airflow around the rider. Emotion? That’s
the part you feel when you look at it sitting right at the center of your V-Twin
Restyled Fairing, Saddlebag and Front Fender
Let’s start with this: When you see the iconic shape of a Harley-Davidson®
Batwing fairing coming at you down the road, it leaves no question that you’re
looking a machine born in Milwaukee and built for gigantic miles of road. But
this is about moving forward. How do you maintain that iconic shape, yet give it
a sleeker, more progressive style? The answer is right here. The new Batwing
fairing gives you less head buffeting (see comfort section for the full story on
that) but also the look that instantly announces “Hey, this is a
HARLEY-DAVIDSON® motorcycle." Of course, we didn’t stop at the fairing. The
fairing lowers and Tour-Pak® luggage carrier got a sleeker new look to match.
And we worked over the front fender, too – with a clean new look that’s cut back
to expose more of the wheel and tire. It all comes together for a look that’s
totally new, yet instantly familiar. Welcome to the next generation of
Harley-Davidson® touring motorcycles.
Project RUSHMORE - Comfort
We dialed in the comfort of our machines the hard way: over thousands of miles
in all kinds of riding conditions on every kind of street, road and highway ever
laid down in pavement. Experienced riders and passengers putting in long hours
in the saddle and giving us feedback on every aspect that contributes to comfort
on the road. Airflow, heat management, passenger space, back rests, seat
textures, leg room and hand controls all went under the hard microscope of the
road and got tested and re-tested by real riders and worked and re-worked by us
until we were satisfied we had built the most comfortable machines on the road.
We all want to go farther, and when you and your passenger are more comfortable
in the saddle, you can.
New Fairing Reduces Head Buffeting
This is what the science of cheating the wind involves at Harley-Davidson now:
Fluid mechanics, algorithms, high-speed super computers and thousands upon
thousands of wind-tunnel tests with riders in the saddle telling us how it
feels. And that’s before we take it out on the road for thousands of miles of
real world wind gusts and every form of rain a cloud can spit out. The result: a
brand new take on the classic Batwing fairing that delivers smoother air flow
and drastically reduced head buffeting. Most of it thanks to the
pressure-equalizing duct on the front. It opens and closes with one touch of a
button. The feeling of being in the wind just got even better.
New Fairing Lowers
There’s no such thing as a minor irritation when you’re going to be experiencing
it for tens of thousands of miles. The little things make a difference. Like the
way the wind comes around your fairing lowers. We’ve got the new fairing lowers
dialed in just right, thanks to more wind tunnel and real world riding tests
than we’ve ever done before. And they're vented, so you can open them up with a
single touch when the going gets hot. You’ll appreciate them more with each
Increased Passenger Seat Space and Leg Room
Here's a message for all passengers: Your time in the saddle just got better.
That goes quadruple when you’re 1000 miles into the ride of a lifetime making
the final leg of the day to get to the hot tub and relax for the evening.
Because the longer the ride, the more you'll appreciate the improvements we
made. This year the passenger pillion is one inch wider and one inch longer. And
we put 2 more inches of room between the speakers. We moved the saddlebag guards
down for more leg room and to make sure they don’t rub your calves. It all adds
up to a ride that provides best-in-class comfort.
Newly Designed Back and Arm Rests
If you really want to know what makes a passenger comfortable, you start by
asking people who’ve seen a good part of the world from the back of a bike. You
run road tests in heat, cold, sun, and rain. You use their input to perfect the
height, the width, the shape, the contour, the texture of the leather, the
lumbar support. You install controls that can be easily reached and operated
with one hand. What you end up with is the back and arm rests you’re looking at
right here. Passengers love them like they’re their own babies, because in a
manner of speaking, they are.
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.
One Touch Design Philosophy
Here’s the rule we laid down for every compartment cover and saddlebag lid on
our touring line: if it doesn’t open with the single touch of a button or one
hand, while wearing gloves, it doesn’t go on the motorcycle. Because in all our
conversations with all the riders we talked to while we were rebuilding these
motorcycles from the ground up, we didn’t encounter a single individual who
wanted to have to put something on the ground before he could store it in a
New Saddlebag Design
Don’t let the sleek new look of these saddlebags deceive you. The look is tight
on the outside, but things just got a little roomier on the inside. You want
stuffability and these deliver bigger than ever. The hinges are simple and clean
and the lids open with one touch of one hand. The lock is tight and integrated
into the latch where you can put the key in without the danger of scratching
your premium paint. And new removable Travel Bags are standard. Welcome to the
next level of the bagger.
New Tour-Pak® Design
Like the new saddlebags, the new Tour-Pak® luggage carrier design is sporting a
sleeker new look, but it didn’t come at the expense of storage space. They’re
bigger inside than ever and can easily accommodate two full-face helmets.
There’s a new document and toolkit pouch. The lock is integrated into the latch
to keep your key away from your premium paint. And new premium hinges that work
better and look sharper. You can operate the single latch with one hand.
Storage. Check. We have it covered.
