If you’re like buyers of new Harley-Davidsons, you begin the process as soon as you take of your bike-if not before. For you start with cams, a or fuel-injection chip, exhaust and ignition module to let the big guy breathe and Next come comfort such as a custom seat, footboards, foot controls and levers.

Mix in some function including aftermarket brakes and then more style including wheels, a high-tech and gauges and bolt-on chrome-lots of bling-bling chrome!

If you’re about performance you might the cases for a stroker crank, job, high-compression pistons and a transmission. Top it all off with a spiffy job and you’re likely to be into baby for over 30 large many months and many of dollars.

The downtime may have you half a riding season on parts and painters and such, but at you’d have yerself a custom bike, a personal making at least 25 percent power than stock‚ but at the expense of perhaps irritating with the bike’s window-rattling decibels, and you’ll likely that precious warranty. Now if the breaks in half‚ both are yours.

If that sounds all too (and like too much Harley-Davidson has a deal for you! If you something that looks and and sounds better than usual run-of-the-mill stocker in a new 2007 Road King, Glide Ultra, Dyna or Springer format), but do not wish to the months and downtime necessary to it together, this bike what The Motor Company’s Vehicle Operations (CVO) can deliver, right to your floor from the factory.

For 2007 H-D’s CVO division deliver approximately 3,500 of third-generation 2007 Harley-Davidson Eagle CVO Road Kings the plant in York, Pennsylvania, with about 9,000 CVOs based upon the models above. Not only are the adorned with acres of and brightwork, but they come an air-cooled, 45-degree, 110-cubic-inch Twin Cam engine, the largest-displacement Harley-Davidson has ever offered, and mated to the new Cruise Drive transmission that debuted on the Dyna series.

At Rider dynoed stock TC88 consistently at about 64-65 our Screamin’ Eagle model however, cranked out 83 horses on the dyno-a 30 percent increase in from a 25 percent increase in and a lot more beans than the old (which has been discontinued) had. The standard Harley Big motor in ’07 will now be a 96-incher Kickstarts), but we have not yet strapped one to the

Where does the power from? It’s bored and to 101.6 x 111.1mm (from the 92.25 x 101.6mm), and the mixture is by forged pistons with a ratio of 9.3:1 (formerly with the tried-and-true two valves per actuated by pushrods and hydraulic, lifters that never adjustment. The valves, of course, are on the CVO.

This TC110 runs the fun meter much up the scale than the ol’ 88 ever and it does so without any of the common side effects of objectionable and vibration that often these upgrades. Turn the switch (located on the dash) and the Sequential Port Fuel buzzes into action; the key is not unless the ignition had been

To better facilitate turning this big-incher, H-D has equipped it a high-torque 1.4-kilowatt starter Hit the switch (it requires neither nor fast-idle control) and the engine alive with a sharp

You may ride away immediately, but let’s perform a walk-around. that blacked-out engine on its rubber mounts with its chromed bling-bling pieces valve covers, derby left engine cover and more. What differentiate the CVO King from its lesser are those leather-covered saddlebags their raised flame and the mini tinted windscreen.

As on a bike the frame has been to complement the sheet metal, and has cleverly hidden some of the bag from the rear by extending the fender to the sides for a cleaner Don’t mistake those on the fenders for decals; H-D informs us actual pearl inlays, and nice!

Take your and you’ll find that most Harleys with engines, the bike throbs at in the seat and grips, only one has a throatier, more aggressive and shakes enough to be mildly in stop-and-go traffic. Chunk the into gear and notice clutch effort is moderate. Be as with their high-performance the friction point on the two CVO bikes ridden is narrow and engagement is

With a minimum of 79.7 of torque already on tap at 2,000 there is sufficient power to this 788-pound motorcycle out and away. What’s especially is that while a stock peaks at around 67-68 of torque, this Screamin’ TC110 offers a twistin’ lb-ft at 3,100 rpm, and peaks at 83.1 at 5,000 The bike smoothes out at speed, and seat-of-the-pants dyno takes

H-D assures us that it’s in all 50 states, too.

If you like (and the CVO buyer certainly note its chromed headlight handlebar, dash strip and how the and tachometer are combined in a single with a very bling aluminum face. Accelerate and both upper and lower needles quickly swing in an arc to the as the speed and revs build. You may not be to view the dash on a sunny day as sparkling on the chrome gives the impression of firecrackers detonating in lap.

On the right side the air cover (with its attractive forces the rider’s leg outward and the toward the board’s outer Footboards are rubber-mounted to the point of squirmy, so it can feel precarious upon your boot Settle into that seat and the small but effective backrest (it has some slight adjustment) is a welcome addition, a pleasantly upright seating with the rider’s elbows bent.

The passenger perch, narrow, is equally cushy spread-out pegs and welcome

In addition to the lighter clutch (which was introduced on all 2006 Big Twins) the six-speed transmission lightly and easily without the clunk associated with the though it is difficult to pop into from first gear. We it necessary to shift up to second, down to neutral.

The heel-and-toe shifter’s chrome and Ironside Accessories Collection pads match those of the which likewise match the on the passenger pegs and the mustache guards and grips. Not only is proper gearing for starting but at an indicated 60 mph in sixth gear the is only turning a lazy rpm.

What appear to be round, flush-mounted chromed caps on the tank are actually very clever styling The left disc houses a gauge in which a series of illuminate in a crescent pattern the tank is full, then in sequence as the fuel supply is Rotate and press down on the disc and it will pop up; it can then be in the conventional manner.

With its power and comfort, riding the CVO King is quite an enjoyable The transmission shifts quickly and low effort, and with 30 percent power and torque the improvement in and passing is easily noticeable. response is instantaneous compared the previous 88-incher, and the engine just enough throb to it character‚ but it stops short of the dreaded V-word of vibration at idle).

The short windscreen the wind off the torso, but is so low it creates a lot of buffeting. It’s easily with a tug, and goes on just as easily.

One particularly enhancement is H-D’s very chromed Road Winder an 18-inch front and 17-inch shod with Dunlop tires. Sight through and the wheel spokes nicely those on the brake rotors for a high-tech effect. And there’s no any need to upgrade the brakes, as the items include three calipers that offer power and feedback.

Despite the bike’s 63.0-inch and lowness it offers more clearance than one would before the footboards begin the pavement. Its air-assisted rear provides just 2.1 inches of which will abuse the on rough pavement. Steering is stable if a little slow, but what we’ve come to from big-inch Harleys.

Get ‘er on the set the electronic cruise control and let baby eat miles. We experienced a over 40 mpg for our overall use; likely do better from the tank during highway

If you like the Screamin’ Eagle looks, chances are a lot of others also. Should they to obtain a five-finger discount, be that the bike comes the Smart Security System Smart Siren. It includes a key-fob disc with that disable the starter and when it’s out of range-farther 8 feet from the bike.

While fit and on our test bike was high, we that the braided-steel lines the instrument nacelle when the bar was full right lock. the right turn signal left a tiny divot in the lovely paint. Both could likely be solved zip-ties and a handlebar adjustment.
