New bagger is truly a custom hot rod

Every year, Harley-Davidson’s Vehicle Operations team a number of bikes from its family groupings to “make-over” as factory-custom rides. For 2010, were four bikes to receive the unique CVO™ two of which are totally new models – the Convertible CVO and the Touring group’s Glide CVO. The other two are or updated models – the Fat Bob CVO from the family, and the CVO Ultra Classic Glide.

In past year’s, the CVO was not only to feature additional and performance, but to pile on what to be tons of extra flash and For this year’s chosen a somewhat different direction was – rather than trick out model to the max, just they could, the team to play down the bling and to focus on what might be a more tasteful approach much across the board.

One noticeable exception is the Tequila paint treatment found on the new CVO Glide – it requires wearing to behold with its bright, heavy gold metal-flake finish and genuine gold graphics. In fact, that’s the to be reviewed here. Production be limited to roughly 3,500 and by the if Tequila Sunrise is too flashy for there’s Candy Concord or Rum to choose from, but both feature the bold gold graphics.

The 2010 CVO Street rolls with lots of new such as: one-piece, injection-molded saddlebags with increased black 18-inch, seven-spoke alloy wheels fore and seven-spoke floating front rotors to match the wheels, a front fender and bracket that showcases the front Showa hydraulic rear with hand-adjustable preload and rebound and damping; a custom, seat and matching backrest pad leather inserts and French engine turned insert/emblem including the air cleaner, console with CVO™ logo, cover; and timer cover.

The exclusive paint schemes color- matched front skirt, upper fork covers, saddlebag latches and plate cover. The rear panel is color-matched as well and LED stop/tail/turn signals. The powertrain is in a granite tone with Eagle® cylinder head

Harley’s Rumble accessory includes the grips floorboard passenger and shifter pegs and pedal pad. There’s custom oil cooler with a cover and CVO medallion, along other special goodies a smoked low-profile wind and turn signal lenses amber bulbs; a 40-watt advanced audio system; brakes; electronic cruise carry-out saddlebag liners; a of chrome accessories; a black 1.4kW starter; high-performance with hydraulic actuation; Smart Security System a siren; an indoor storage with an embroidered CVO logo; and a CVO ignition key with a display

The CVO Street Glide is built on the Touring chassis introduced by last year, which is on a single-spar, rigid backbone and a new swingarm developed to withstand the of long-haul touring riders and more-powerful engines.

And, of power, the Custom Vehicle (CVO™) FLHXSE Street is powered by an 1803cc (110 110B™, air-cooled V-Twin motor with a granite featuring electronic sequential fuel injection. The motor out an impressive 110 pound feet of @ 3,000 rpm, fed by a free-flowing breather forced-air intake.

The gearbox is a sequential six-speed Drive manual unit is exceptionally smooth, moving up or through the gears. Power the rear wheel via a fiber-reinforced Exhaust exits from dual pipes that a pleasingly traditional and throaty rumble that’s more than a stock bike.

componenetry consists of 41.3 mm forks with a blow-by up front, while a traditional takes care of the rear duties with hydraulic rear shocks. Rolling consists of Harley-Davidson Dunlop mounted on Black 7-spoke alloy wheels shod Dunlop® Harley-Davidson® Series, blackwall tires – D407 63H up front and D408 180/55B18x5” 80H out back.

My test bike was provided of my local Harley-Davidson dealer and was stunning with Tequila custom paint treatment and gold leaf graphics. The price was set at $30,999. with the sticker totaling $31,579.

The 2010 Harley-Davidson FLHXSE Street Glide® represents a custom bike right off the floor. It is one totally fine CVO

The 110-inch V-Twin motor smooth power across its range and gear changes are smooth. The riding position, its low seat height and mid-located controls, along with the placed handlebars, is very and makes it a joy to use up the contents of the long-range fuel tank.

The only negative issues have to do the reflection from the exceptionally paint, and the “shorty” windscreen, can direct the wind into the of taller riders. The fork-mounted weight is noticeable during low speed maneuvering.

In the final analysis… if you’ve got the this is the machine – the new CVO Street comes with plenty of features and stands out from the without doing anything to it at
