Inside Harley-Davidson

The 2018 Harley-Davidson® motorcycle lineup introduces the most robust array of custom Touring bikes the company has ever produced, boasting show-stopping style and plush comfort.

New 2018 touring models take custom to the next level

08/23/17

Joining the limited-edition Custom Vehicle Operations™ (CVO) family with the largest-ever Harley-Davidson stock engine are three new restyled Model Year 18 (MY18) touring motorcycles.

 

The new Street Glide® Special and Road Glide® Special models also got the MY18 treatment with sinister, blacked-out styling.

 

“For CVO, we’ve rebooted the styling tone of the overall lineup and added some exclusive performance enhancements. And our two new custom baggers are the most aggressive, on-trend touring bikes in the market,” said Dave Foley, vice president of Product Planning and Portfolio Management. “I can’t wait for riders to throw a leg over and experience the new rides for themselves.”

 

New models continue the tradition of exclusive CVO luxury – with more power

MY18 marks the first year of the Milwaukee-Eight® 117ci displacement engine, the most powerful V-Twin ever offered from the factory, and available only in new CVO models.

 

Along with this powerful performance, the new CVO models give riders the freedom to express their passion and individuality with fully customized, limited edition motorcycles that come straight from the factory with a two-year unlimited warranty.

 

The CVO™ Limited, CVO™ Road Glide®, and CVO™ Street Glide® include all the premium features fans have come to expect from the CVO family, including best-in-class power, a choice of three premium paints, custom wheels, wireless headset and the Boom!™ Box 6.5GT infotainment system.

 

Redesigned touring models offer a dark styling statement

The tradition of offering customers the features they can’t get anywhere else continues with aggressively styled new touring models. The Street Glide® Special and Road Glide® Special join the Road King® Special to deliver hot rod bagger style with custom wheels, dark finishes, and stretched saddlebags.

 

The wildly popular Street Glide Special and Road Glide Special models mark a new design direction for 2018, swapping chrome for black. Powered by the muscular Milwaukee-Eight® 107 (1746cc) engine, the two new baggers take the base level models and elevate them with an on-trend custom styling statement.
