2011 CVO Street Glide | Harley-Davidson

What you get with this CVO is a limited-production version of the popular Harley-Davidson hot rod bagger. But it comes with one-offish, custom styling and all the chrome, paint, and accessories associated with that. As with all CVOs, a TC 110? power plant is standard, and in this bike it definitely puts the hot in hot rod in more ways than one.

This year’s CVO Street Glide features a Road King side-fill fuel tank with flush-mount caps, gas on the right, and LED gauge on the left. The new, low-profile console and sleek, liquid-metal badges give the setup a true custom look. A new 19? seven-spoke Agitator front wheel, the largest-diameter wheel ever offered on a H-D Touring bike, is covered by a slammed and trimmed front fender. Hydraulic rear shocks are hand- adjustable for preload and perform well over a wide range of road surfaces. The combination lets this bike roll in style without compromising the overall handling. A low-profile seat is faced with snakeskin-patterned leather inserts and puts the rider in a comfortable riding position. A matching passenger backrest comes standard.

All 2011 CVOs have benefited from audio system upgrades, and this model specifically boasts six speakers (one in each of the ventilated fairing lowers and the other four in the fairing) and a new, high-efficiency, 100-watt-per-channel amplifier. An 8GB iPod nano comes standard with your bike purchase, and it easily docks to a holder located in the top of the right saddlebag for seamless interaction with the stock sound system. Also notable is the fact that the saddlebags on this bike are of the one-piece, extended variety which adds both style and storage capacity.

A first for CVO: each of the four color options will be complemented by other specific finishes. For example, the Kryptonite and Black Diamond bike you see here also has gloss black engine covers as well as a blacked-out inner fairing and muffler caps. Note that production will be limited to approximately 3,700 units total for all four colors, with this color and combination of finishes being the most exclusive of the four.
