With Harley’s full lineup fully introduced, let’s dig into their new CVO™ Road Glide® ST.
2024 CVO™ Road Glide® ST
Presented as “the quickest, fastest, and most-sophisticated performance bagger ever produced by Harley-Davidson,” HD’s press release tells us that this new Custom Vehicle Operations machine touts perks like a generous solo saddle and a 6” riser.
The Milwaukee-Eight 121 High Output V-Twin – exclusive to this build – continues her reign of power, generating a very nice 127hp (95kW) @ 4900rpm, with 145 ft-lb (193Nm) of torque available @ 4000rpm.
Harley obviously wanted the debut of the CVO Road Glide ST to be a special affair; as such, we see no sight of the brand’s Road Glide, nor the Street Glide ST, making this Road Glide ST all the more desirable.
In case you’re looking close enough, yes – that gas tank is inspired by the Screamin’ Eagle® Harley-Davidson® Factory motorcycles raced in the equally stunning (and equally hairy) King of the Baggers series.
Here’s the big list of key features for Harley’s new 2024 CVO™ Road Glide® ST:
Color Schemes: “Golden White Pearl” or “Raven Metallic”
Screamin’ Eagle graphics decorate the fairing sides, and CVO™ 25th Anniversary graphics celebrate Harley’s quarter-year milestone in factory customization
