New CVO™ Road Glide® Custom Motorcycle Offers Bagger Bravado

Concord, Ontario (July 20, 2011) - Hot-Rod Touring Performance with High-Output Audio and Stunning Paint

Harley-Davidson® Custom Vehicle Operations™ takes bagger swagger to a new level with the 2012 CVO™ Road Glide® Custom motorcycle – a chrome-drenched, shark-nosed beauty that snarls with Screamin’ Eagle® authority. This limited-production motorcycle features the most-powerful VTwin engine offered by Harley-Davidson Motor Company, an exclusive multi-coloured paint scheme, a new high-output sound system, and a host of fresh custom components. Bombing the boulevard or scorching the highway, the CVO™ Road Glide® Custom motorcycle offers an unmatched hot-rod touring experience.

CVO™ motorcycles are customized using exclusive components and paint treatments combined with premium accessories 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.

The CVO™ Road Glide® Custom motorcycle features a distinctive frame-mounted fairing, which offers a lighter steering feel than a fork-mounted fairing, and incorporates dual headlamps and a cockpit-style instrument display. Its Harley-Davidson® Touring chassis has a single-spar rigid backbone frame and a two-piece swingarm designed to deliver responsive manoeuvrability and long-haul durability. Chassis geometry and suspension are calibrated to deliver confident handling and comfort. Hand-adjustable hydraulic rear shocks accommodate variable passenger and luggage loads. An Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) and cruise control are standard equipment.
