Born from the rich lineage that came before it and sculpted by wind tunnel, every surface of the CVO Road Glide has been reimagined and refined, creating a seamless visual flow from the tip of the front fender through to the tail of the rear saddlebags.
The acclaimed sharknose fairing takes on new life with a sculpted silhouette, fully-integrated LED lighting and new windshield design. Using computational fluid dynamics to improve aerodynamic efficiency, the CVO Road Glide achieves optimal aero performance and rider comfort with an aggressive new take on the original design.
Seamlessly integrated into the CVO Road Glide design, the full LED lighting package optimises visibility, integrates turn signals and accentuates the lines of the sharknose fairing, creating a distinctive look that’s instantly recognisable, day or night.
The CVO Road Glide’s 22.7 litre tear-drop fuel tank is long and lean with a tailored profile and distinct beveled edge.
The CVO Road Glide is fitted with 19” front and 18” rear combo cast laced wheels and equipped with Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS).
A final extension of the aggressive lines and athletic build of the fairing and fuel tank, the saddlebags increase overall luggage volume capacity and complete the aggressive stance of the CVO Road Glide.
Available in Dark Platinum with Bright Smoked Satin pinstriping or two-tone Whiskey Neat and Raven Metallic with airbrushed details and pinstriping. Each is complemented with either gloss black/chrome or scorched chrome accents for a total package that accentuates the new body lines and highlights the CVO ethos of obsessive attention to detail.
The latest innovation in rider connectivity, the crystal-clear, anti-reflective surface of the 312 mm touch-screen color TFT display replaces analog gauges and puts navigation and infotainment at your fingertips.
The customisable in-dash experience with three unique display options, navigation, and an all-new suite of connected infotainment features powered by Skyline™ OS.
Ride Modes electronically control performance characteristics and the level of safety technology intervention. Each of the three standard and two customisable ride modes bring to life a unique combination of power delivery, engine braking, Cornering Antilock Braking System (C-ABS) and Cornering Traction Control System (C-TCS) settings.
The CVO Road Glide is equipped with the Rockford Fosgate™ Stage II premium audio system featuring a 4-channel 500-watt RMS amplifier that powers integrated fairing and saddlebag speakers.
The highest displacement powertrain ever to be factory-installed on a Harley-Davidson Touring motorcycle, the Milwaukee-Eight VVT 121 features liquid-cooled cylinder heads, variable valve timing (VVT) and a new intake tract. The increased displacement produces more power and torque than the Milwaukee-Eight 117 engine, while VVT broadens the overall powerband and improves fuel economy.
Complete with mufflers and premium finishes, the high-flow exhaust system complements the engine tuning performance, while enhancing style and sound.
The 2023 CVO Road Glide is 15 kg lighter than its predecessor, enhancing all aspects of performance including acceleration and braking.
New inverted 47mm forks and premium shocks with 76 mm of suspension travel optimize handling performance and rider comfort.
Dual 320mm diameter front disc brakes with radially mounted four-piston Brembo™ calipers in the front and a single four-piston Brembo caliper and 300mm diameter rotor in the rear enhance feel and overall braking performance.
Designed to match motorcycle performance to available traction during acceleration, deceleration and braking, the system utilises the latest chassis control, electronic brake control and powertrain technology to enhance rider confidence while riding in adverse road conditions.
Developed using computational fluid dynamics and wind tunnel analysis, the new windshield design, coupled with the new fairing design helps reduce wind buffeting and rider fatigue while adjustable air vanes enhance comfort with the ability to tune air flow.
Premium seat with a new shape coupled with wider, flatter handlebars and adjustable levers help optimise the rider triangle for enhanced comfort and reduced fatigue during long rides.
The new remote-adjustable shocks increase travel by 50% compared to its predecessor, which provide a significant improvement to rider comfort.
For colder days, heated grips and prewired connections for heated gear come standard on the CVO Road Glide.
