Last year, we were given an iconic Grand American Touring duo for 2023; today, those visuals have been carried forward in the form of some heavily updated bikes of the same name… with the “CVO” moniker slapped on for the hike in price, of course.
According to Harley’s release, both the Street Glide® and Road Glide® show off the brand’s Milwaukee-Eight VVT 121 engine, capable of 115hp (86kW) @ 4500rpm and 139ft-lb of torque yanking quite nicely @ 3,000rpm.
The power platform is also updated with a new cooling system that optimizes pipe intake and flow, which maintains optimal rider comfort.
If you’re worried about the weight, don’t. Both the Street Glide® and the Road Glide® are lighter than their non-CVO counterparts, with the Road Glide weighting in at 825lbs and the Street Glide, 800lbs dry.
New color schemes for both bikes include “Copperhead” and “Legendary Orange.” The livery joins the addition of tweaked suspension: 47 mm Inverted 1×1 front forks dress the front, while the rear carries a dual adjustable emulsions system with remote preload adjustment on the left shock and threaded preload on the right shock.
The rear suspension, by the way, is now increased by 3 inches.
