About Harley-Davidson CVO™ CVO™ Softail® Convertible

The 2011 Harley-Davidson CVO Softail Convertible has a detachable fairing making this custom Harley a true convertible. Further living up to its name, the saddlebags on this Harley CVO model can be removed and are sealed to protect your belongings from the elements. For a quick custom change, the seat with a detachable passenger pillion allows you to quickly go from a solo to a two up ride for a passenger. Unique to this custom Harley Softail Convertible CVO is a digital speedo and analog tach. This high-tech gauge delivers a speedometer that toggles between mph and km/h and a unique perimeter-sweeping tachometer. Its digital, backlit 5-inch face makes for easy readouts, and the design pops with spun metal and color matching accents. Learn more about this and all other features of this true convertible custom Harley. Take a minute to see the other CVO bikes as well: the CVO Road Glide Ultra touring custom motorcycle, the CVO Street Glide with its custom Harley wheels, and the CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide premium with Screamin' Eagle performance.

Key Features

AUTHENTIC STYLING

Exclusive CVO™ Enhancements

CVO™ Softail® Convertible

All the quality. All the legacy of the Harley-Davidson® name. Plus custom touches and performance that distinguish you from every other bike on the road. Sure there's a little vanity. Premium custom paint. Big, tricked-out wheels. The perfect storm of engineering and style you'll only find on a custom machine. And you'll spoil yourself with the accessories—from comfort to electronics to chrome. But the real signature of a Harley-Davidson® Custom Vehicle Operations™ motorcycle is the explosive power and sleek detailing of the huge Screamin' Eagle® engine. It's custom-built, not just for anyone, but for true connoisseurs of the road.

Detachable Fairing

CVO™ Softail® Convertible

The CVO™ Softail® Convertible model is all about options. And the detachable fairing with smoked Lexan® windshield gives you a comfortable ride over the long haul. Plus it's easy to convert and quickly detach for cruising in the wind. Includes built-in 3 ½ -inch two-way speakers, a 20W per channel amp and auxiliary connection for your music player. If you don't have a player, well, you do now because a Harley-Davidson® edition iPod® is included.

Detachable Leather Saddlebags

CVO™ Softail® Convertible

Take the convertible nature of this beast even further. This year's CVO™ Softail® Convertible saddlebags can be quickly dismounted if you want to cruise without the cargo. Or leave them on for long-haul luxury. Leather with alligator-skin-styled inserts, they combine a smooth sleek styled appearance with the latest convenience features. Larger than the 2010 model's saddlebags, they'll even handle a half shell helmet. And they've got enhanced sealing against the elements.

Detachable Passenger Pillion

CVO™ Softail® Convertible

Imported alligator-style inserts bring the style. The backrest pad brings the comfort. And the all-weather leather brings the quality. Best of all, it's easy to install when you want to take someone for a ride. Or quickly detach for stripped-back solo cruising. Together with the detachable fairing and saddlebags, it's like having two bikes in one.

Chrome Welded Mini "Ape-Hanger" Handlebar

CVO™ Softail® Convertible

Grab hold of the 1 ¼-inch chrome mini "ape-hanger" handlebars and put your fists 8 inches up in the wind. The 90-degree welds scream garage custom and the internal wiring preserves a clean, premium look. Detach the fairing and extras to cut an even more dramatic figure and bring old-school chopper flavor to your top-of-the line custom cruiser.

Custom Stinger Chrome Wheels

CVO™ Softail® Convertible

These wheels are gorgeous in every way. Bold 18-inch wheels in front and back look great against that slammed bike profile. And the five-spoke, Stinger design is done up in fully polished mirrored chrome for a profile that's sharp, airy and distinct. The iconic Bar & Shield wheel weights and floating brake rotors are chromed out in true custom fashion.

Digital Speedo and Analog Tach

CVO™ Softail® Convertible

Unique to the CVO™ Softail® Convertible model, this high-tech gauge delivers a speedometer that toggles between mph and km/h and a unique perimeter-sweeping tachometer. Its digital, backlit 5-inch face makes for easy readouts, and the design pops with spun metal and color matching accents.

High-Impact Paint and Graphics

CVO™ Softail® Convertible

Individually crafted and hand finished, high-impact paint and graphics come standard on all Harley-Davidson® Custom Vehicle Operations™ motorcycles. Custom stippling and metal grind graphics adorn the three exclusive Softail® Convertible schemes. From Scarlet Red Pearl to Midnight Sky, the devil's got nothing on these soulful color combinations.

Hand Finished Fuel Tank

CVO™ Softail® Convertible

Harley-Davidson® fuel tanks are finished by hand—that's what makes them stand out from the competition. Their seamless design and unmatched style are unique among all motorcycles on the road. The tanks are one of the first and last things people notice when they lay their eyes on a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle—so we make it worth their time.

ICONIC ENGINE

Screamin' Eagle® Twin Cam 110B™ Engine Heritage

CVO™ Softail® Convertible

The knowledge of what makes an engine truly move a rider runs deep at The Motor Company, and it was put to good use when we created the Screamin' Eagle® Twin Cam 110B™ counter-balanced engine. We sweated bullets perfecting every cubic inch, pushing design and technology forward.
And we did it all without compromising one bit of Harley-Davidson's unique styling. Evolved, yet carrying on the legacy of the Flathead, Knucklehead, Panhead, Shovelhead, Evolution® and Twin Cam 88® engines that came before. The performance and durability are a direct result of the untold miles logged on the V-Twin since 1909, and the proud heritage that comes from a century's worth of commitment to life on two wheels.

Screamin' Eagle® Twin Cam 110B™ Engine Innovation

CVO™ Softail® Convertible

Fire up the Twin Cam 110B™ counter-balanced engine and feel the low-end torque unleashed for a smooth ride. The colossal 110 cubic inches provide seemingly endless torque with adrenaline-pumping pull through all six gears. Boasting the largest-displacement V-Twin engine by Harley-Davidson, the Twin Cam 110B™ produces 110 ft. lbs. of torque at 3000 rpm. Six speeds. A strong driveline and strong internal parts. Low routine maintenance. And a low cruising rpm couldn't feel better.

Vehicle shown may vary visually by market.  Vehicles depicted may differ from vehicles manufactured and delivered.  See your dealer for details.

Pure Harley-Davidson Styling

CVO™ Softail® Convertible

Feast your eyes on the Twin Cam 110B™ counter-balanced engine and there's no mistaking its roots. This is authentic Harley-Davidson® style through and through with an attention to detail you won't find from any other motorcycle company. Granite powder-coated heads and cylinders feature machined cooling fin tips and are highlighted by chrome rocker covers. Exclusive to Custom Vehicle Operations™, the granite powertrain and 110 badging are unapologetically distinguished. It's a jewel machined out of metal. Pure. Dripping with power.
From the classic edge of the cooling fins to the clean lines of cases and covers—the Twin Cam 110B™ engine makes an ironclad statement to holding on to what's right and staying true to what satisfies the rider.

Six-Speed Cruise Drive®

CVO™ Softail® Convertible

You want a ride that rumbles—not begs for mercy—when you lean on it a little. The Six-Speed Cruise Drive® transmission provides smooth, quiet shifting and reduces engine speed on the highway, so you get a better match between engine turnover and road speed. It's a rare ride when a bike responds like this, and a low growl goes a long way when you're opening up the road ahead.

Vehicle shown may vary visually by market.  Vehicles depicted may differ from vehicles manufactured and delivered.  See your dealer for details.

Hydraulic Clutch

CVO™ Softail® Convertible

Performance gets the custom treatment on Custom Vehicle Operations™ motorcycles. The addition of a high-performance clutch with hydraulic actuation helps make sure you're getting a smooth, confident feel with just the right amount of effort and a hands-off reliability that's only fitting. And you'll love the confidence and control it lends when harnessing those 110 cubic inches of Screamin' Eagle® power.

"Ventilator" Intake with Screamin' Eagle® 110 Insert

CVO™ Softail® Convertible

Everything about the Screamin' Eagle® Twin Cam 110™ Engine is a testament to the premium styling and performance you get with a limited Custom Vehicle Operations™ motorcycle. Right smack between the engine jugs rests the high-flow "ventilator" intake with high-flow filter element, back plate, alligator-styled Screamin' Eagle badge and protective rain sock. Your bike will breathe easy while the increased air flow boosts the raw power. Unique and exclusive. That is what Custom Vehicle Operations is all about.

Classic Harley-Davidson Rumble

CVO™ Softail® Convertible

Iconic, fierce, the most distinct decibels you'll ever hear bouncing off the city canyons or scenic country landscapes. The sound of a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle has a rich history of its own. It's a classic roar. It's the sound of freedom, soul and self-expression.

Vehicle shown may vary visually by market.  Vehicles depicted may differ from vehicles manufactured and delivered.  See your dealer for details.

TECHNOLOGY

New Harley-Davidson® iPod® nano

CVO™ Softail® Convertible

We just won't settle for anything we can't design to the last detail. We've even taken it upon ourselves to customize the iPod® you'll be plugging into the system. Designed specifically for the Custom Vehicle Operations™ series, this 8 GB iPod® nano—complete with the H-D® bar and shield etched on the back and protective Custom Vehicle Operations™ carrying pouch—is another way we go the extra mile.

Vehicle shown may vary visually by market.  Vehicles depicted may differ from vehicles manufactured and delivered.  See your dealer for details.

Integrated Sound System

CVO™ Softail® Convertible

That exclusive Harley-Davidson® iPod® nano deserves a suitable booming system. This one comes with great sound, the 20 watts per channel amplifier drives the 3 ½–inch two-way speakers to deliver the rock in your roll. The amp, speakers, and volume control are housed artfully inside a new inner fairing for a slick, clean look—a perfect compliment to the crisp, blanketing sound. Riding free just wouldn't be the same without the right soundtrack. Now, it's yours to write.

New Keyless Ignition System with Security System

CVO™ Softail® Convertible

The 2011 CVO™ Softail® Convertible is the first-ever Harley-Davidson® bike to feature a keyless ignition. Talk about feeling connected to your machine. For anyone else, it's just a good-looking pile of metal. But it knows you. The ignition switch is gone and you don't even need a key to start your bike.
The system features a hands-free fob that automatically arms the vehicle as you walk away from the bike. And when you get back, the system is disabled before you can swing your leg over and flip the switch to start it. It's all automatic. It just happens for you. And since the bike takes care of itself, we replaced the ignition switch with an eye-catching, back-lit medallion that glows red with the distinctive Custom Vehicle Operations™ logo.

Vehicle shown may vary visually by market.  Vehicles depicted may differ from vehicles manufactured and delivered.  See your dealer for details.

Anti-Lock Brakes

CVO™ Softail® Convertible

When it comes to the CVO™ Softail® Convertible, "stopping power" has a double meaning. New in 2011 and standard on this Custom Vehicle Operations™ motorcycle, the components of our ABS are tastefully hidden within the front and rear headlight cover, so you'll still turn heads with a clean, streamlined design. More importantly, though, you get certainty in the saddle knowing your bike's going to respond and stop smoothly when you need it to.

Vehicle shown may vary visually by market.  Vehicles depicted may differ from vehicles manufactured and delivered.  See your dealer for details.

Electronic Cruise Control

CVO™ Softail® Convertible

Introducing the first-ever factory cruise control on a Harley-Davidson® Softail®. It's just another way the Convertible rides the line between cruising style and touring comfort. You'll get the convenience of cruise control without the cables cluttering up your handlebar. Our electronic throttle control technology makes it possible to have the best of both worlds.

Vehicle shown may vary visually by market.  Vehicles depicted may differ from vehicles manufactured and delivered.  See your dealer for details.

Accessory Connector

CVO™ Softail® Convertible

Beyond the unique paint and graphics. Beyond the broad band of power. Beyond the cool custom features. You can enhance your Custom Vehicle Operations™ motorcycle even more by taking advantage of the exhaustive catalogue of Harley-Davidson add-ons and accessories. The accessory connector sits discreetly under the rider seat to the left, making sure that whatever you envision for your bike is easily within your reach and can be plugged in with ease.

Artfully Hidden Technology

CVO™ Softail® Convertible

Harley-Davidson leverages the latest in technology without compromising style and function. That means we hide electronics. The whole wiring harness is skillfully routed behind the jewels of the bike—the tank, engine and all the other eye-popping features you want to see. It's just another way The Motor Company goes the extra mile to give its bikes that premium, top-of-the-line fit and finish.

Intuitive Controls

CVO™ Softail® Convertible

Hand controls on a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle are incredibly intuitive. The turn signals are self-canceling and, based on the speed and angle of the motorcycle, they know how long to stay on. Engaging the controls quickly becomes second nature so you can focus less on turning off your signal and more on basking in the freedom of the ride.

HANDLING

Tuned to Be Ridden

CVO™ Softail® Convertible

Harley-Davidson® motorcycles are different than any other bike out on the road. There's a balance to them. The steering, the maneuverability—it's all in concert. And each Harley-Davidson® model is tuned differently to create a unique riding experience for each individual no matter which bike they swing their leg over. Let's face it, we didn't get to where we are by being like everyone else.

COMFORT

Custom Seat

CVO™ Softail® Convertible

The perfect saddle for riders craving that low-down slammed West Coast style. At a sunken 24.4 inches, this seat is one of the lowest you'll find on a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle. Stylish alligator-style inserts add a touch of classic detail. And the slimmed nose makes it even easier to get your feet flat on the ground. Riders of all sizes can sink down in the saddle comfortably and confidently stalk the boulevard in style.

Detachable Passenger Seat

CVO™ Softail® Convertible

Though you get your dream bike, your passenger might argue they're the lucky one. They'll be seen soaking up miles in touring comfort, complete with a padded backrest—not to mention a chauffeur. And when it's time for you to go alone, just quickly detach the passenger pillion, backrest and upright and hit the throttle—don't worry, underneath you'll find stylish chrome and rubber trim strips for a clean solo look.

Full-Length Footboards

CVO™ Softail® Convertible

Your boots were made for riding, in any way you see fit. Our full-length footboards boast a tried and true design that's stood the test of time. You can rock plenty of foot positions with the Rumble-style boards for your taste and comfort. Plus, rubber vibration isolation offers a smooth ride every time.

Vehicle shown may vary visually by market.  Vehicles depicted may differ from vehicles manufactured and delivered.  See your dealer for details.

Extended Jiffy Leg Stand

CVO™ Softail® Convertible

The CVO™ Softail® Convertible model is the ultimate bike for riders of all sizes. We've even added a longer side stand to make it easy for you to extend and tuck away, no matter your inseam. Polished and chrome-plated, it adds style and convenience. So when you roll up to a roadhouse, you'll be able to slide off and settle in without even breaking your stride.
