2012 CVO™ Bikes Offer Stunning Style And Thrilling Performance

Concord, Ontario (July 20, 2011) - Four Models Including the New CVO™ Road Glide® Custom Motorcycle Upgraded Infotainment on All Bikes

Harley-Davidson® Custom Vehicle Operations™ (CVO™) emphasizes exclusive styling and inspiring performance with four limited-production motorcycle models for 2012. Decked out with bold paint, gleaming chrome, high-output audio, and the most powerful V-Twin engines offered in production Harley-Davidson® motorcycles, each CVO™ model is a rolling object of desire for the discerning motorcyclist.

Each 2012 CVO™ model is powered by the fuel-injected Twin Cam 110™ V-Twin engine – the largest displacement engine offered in a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle and rated at up to 122 ft. lbs. of torque. This engine is only available from the Factory in CVO™ models. CVO™ motorcycles are customized using premium accessories and paint treatments combined with numerous items from the Harley-Davidson® Genuine Motor Accessories Catalogue. The CVO™ Program is often used to introduce new custom components and techniques before they are offered as individual accessories. Harley-Davidson® CVO™ motorcycles are backed by a two-year, unlimited mileage warranty.

Harley-Davidson Motor Company is offering an all-new CVO™ model for 2012: 
  • 2012 CVO™ Road Glide® Custom Motorcycle: This hot-rod bagger combines a distinctive shark-nose, frame-mounted fairing with a road-hugging, slammed profile for a look that is sure to turn heads. A highoutput, amplified Harman/Kardon Advanced Audio radio features CD/AM/FM/WB and delivers 100 watts per channel to five-by-seven-inch fairing-mounted speakers and two-inch dash-mounted tweeters. An included 8 GB Apple iPod Nano connects via an interface and holder located in the right-side saddlebag. Exclusive custom features include a smoked Wind Splitter windshield; a two-piece custom seat with removable pillion and colour-coordinated stitching and cover; and a colour-matched, low-profile fuel tank console with illuminated CVO™ graphic insert. A 19-inch contrast chrome Agitator custom front wheel leads this beauty down the road. The Canadian suggested Retail price for this premium motorcycle is $33,689.

Three CVO™ models return for 2012 with new paint schemes and features: 

  • 2012 CVO™ Street Glide® Motorcycle: A high-performance bagger with a fork-mounted bat-wing fairing, the CVO™ Street Glide® motorcycle has enhanced audio performance with a two-amp/eight-speaker system that includes speakers in the fairing, fairing lowers, and now also in the saddlebag lids. Also new is a low-profile solo touring seat with an embossed insert pattern, detachable passenger pillion and backrest pad, and diamond cut charcoal engine cover inserts and instrument faces. Three new colour combinations are available for this model, which comes with a suggested Canadian price tag of $35,879. 
  • 2012 CVO™ Softail® Convertible Motorcycle: Detachable compact fairing, saddlebags, passenger pillion, and backrest make it possible to transform the CVO™ Softail® Convertible motorcycle from touring to cruising format in minutes. For 2012, a redesigned windshield significantly reduces turbulence to the rider and integrates a Road Tech™ zumo 660 GPS Navigator with an MP3 player. Turn-by-turn voice commands play over the two-speaker audio system. The detachable leather saddlebags match the seat and passenger backrest in either distressed brown leather or black leather with reptile inserts. A welded mini-ape handlebar adds a custom touch. Electronic cruise control, keyless ignition, and an Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) provide touring functionality. Available in Canada with a suggested Retail price of $32,589, this model comes in three new colour combinations. 
  • 2012 CVO™ Ultra Classic® Electra Glide® Motorcycle: This ultimate long-haul touring motorcycle is ready to take on the most challenging touring assignments with style. New features for 2012 start with BOOM!™ Audio High Performance BOOM! Bagger™ Speakers plus new BOOM!™ Audio Bass Booster Ports in the Tour-Pak® bottom liner. These are all powered by an amplifier tuned to match the dynamics of the speakers and the motorcycle environment. An 8 GB Apple iPod Nano and iPod interface completes the audio package. The CVO™ Ultra Classic® motorcycle rolls on new mirror chrome chisel custom wheels with matching brake rotors, and the King Tour-Pak® features new chrome LED brake/tail lamps. The suspended, dual-control heated, two-up seat and adjustable passenger backrest have a Harley-Davidson® Bar & Shield monogram and pebbled pattern texture. Electronic Throttle Control (ETC), cruise control, and ABS are standard equipment. Three new colour combinations are available for this model, which has a suggested Canadian Retail price of $40,869.
