Harley Davidson gives CVO treatment to 2010 Ultra Classic Electra Glide

(January 24, 2010) – The new 2010 Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) Ultra Classic Electra Glide motorcycle trades the shine of chrome for a fade to black in its debut as the new, darker version of this truly exceptional Harley-Davidson Touring motorcycle.

Each motorcycle is serialized from one to 999, and displays a formidable array of blacked-out components, led by the serialized CB pod insert, the gloss black Rumble collection and the low-smoked windshield. The new CVO Ultra Classic motorcycle adds leading-edge technology with a handlebar-mounted Road Tech zūmo 660 GPS Navigator and an integrated automatic lock system that now includes the ignition knob.

The CVO Ultra Classic motorcycle is powered by a black and chrome Screamin’ Eagle Twin Cam 110 engine and a six-speed Cruise Drive transmission, which is the largest-displacement V-Twin engine offered from the Factory by Harley-Davidson Motor Company.

Besides the black powertrain, this menacing touring bike revels in all things dark with a Crimson Mist Black/Dark Slate and flame graphics base colour, and approximately 185 other unique black parts, components and accessories meticulously melded to form and function by the CVO team.

Among the main attractions on the dark road to CVO Ultra custom inspiration are the contrast chrome roulette wheels, Rumble Collection featuring nine gloss black accessories from mirrors to saddlebag latch covers, black engine and saddlebag guards, and diamond black gauge faces. All of these deeply dark features combine to make the Ultra Classic bike into an inspired motorcycle that could only come from the Harley-Davidson CVO team.

The CVO Ultra Classic motorcycle presents a lower profile up front with a 6.5-inch smoked windshield and adds premium Touring features like an anti-lock braking system (ABS), LED saddlebag lights, Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI), a six-gallon fuel tank, Brembo brakes and a 160-watt CD/AM/FM/WB/ MP3 Advanced Audio System by Harman-Kardon, CB and intercom, and passenger audio with controls, cruise control, plus standard XM Radio.

The CVO Ultra Classic motorcycle is built on the innovative Touring chassis introduced by Harley-Davidson in 2009, based on a single-spar, rigid backbone frame and swingarm, specifically developed to suit the needs of long-haul touring rides. Key CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide Motorcycle Features - Screamin’ Eagle black and chrome Twin Cam 110 engine with 110 cid (1,803 cc), rubber-mounted to the frame, is rated at 115 ft. lbs. of torque at 3,750 rpm. The six-speed Cruise Drive transmission with black and chrome case features a helical-cut fifth gear.

- Developed for Harley-Davidson by Garmin, the Road Tech zūmo 660 has a new mounting position for convenient viewing by both rider and passenger with a glove-friendly touch screen, left-handed controls and a bright, UV-resistant display that is easy to read in sunlight.
- Gloss black Rumble Collection featuring rider footboard inserts and pans, passenger footboard inserts and pans, shifter pegs, brake pedal, highway pegs, mirrors, windshield trim, saddlebag latch covers and heated hand grips with end caps.
- Contrast chrome roulette wheels, 17-inch front and 16-inch rear
- Suspended, dual-control heated leather seat with new perforated printed insert
- Leather passenger backrest with adjustable lumbar support and new perforated, leather insert.
- New custom paint scheme is Crimson Mist Black/Dark Slate with flame graphics.

Production of the 2010 CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide motorcycle will be limited to approximately 999 units. This model has a suggested Canadian Retail price of $43,359.
