2013 Harley-Davidson FLHTCUSE8 CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide Review

2013 Harley-Davidson FLHTCUSE8 CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide

Top of the line Grand American Touring as only Harley-Davidson® does it. From power to premium features—when you want it all, this is the bike that brings it...

This super-premium touring motorcycle is fully equipped and stylishly appointed. New features for 2013 include the chrome and rubber Slipstream Collection heated hand grips, rider and passenger footboard inserts, brake lever pad, shifter and highway pegs and windshield trim. The suspended, dual-control heated, two-up seat and adjustable passenger backrest have a new perforated leather insert. A new chrome billet-style extended reach heel shifter creates more boot room on the left-side footboard. The CVO Ultra is equipped with a high-performance Harman/Kardon® Advanced Audio system that includes BOOM!™ Audio High Performance BOOM! Bagger™ speakers. Four new color combinations are available, including the 110th anniversary scheme.

A highlight of each 110th Anniversary Edition model are solid bronze fuel tank badges, plated in black nickel and then distressed to highlight the bronze. A bright gold-tone Bar and Shield cloisonné is inserted in the main body of the "single wing" badge while each motorcycle will carry other model-specific anniversary badging, trim and a serialization badge.

Exclusive CVO™ Enhancements

All the quality. All the legacy of the Harley-Davidson name. Plus custom touches and performance that distinguish you from every other bike on the road. Sure there's a little vanity. Premium custom. Big, tricked-out wheels. Deep attention to details. The perfect storm of engineering and style you'll only find on a custom machine. And you'll spoil yourself with the accessories—from comfort to electronics to chrome. But the real signature of a Harley-Davidson® Custom Vehicle Operations™ motorcycle is the explosive power and sleek detailing of the huge Twin Cam 110™ with Screamin' Eagle® engine badges. It's custom-built, not just for anyone, but for true connoisseurs of the road.

High-Impact Paint and Graphics

Individually crafted and hand-finished paint and graphics come standard on all Harley-Davidson® Custom Vehicle Operations™ motorcycles, balancing style and premium appeal to create one-of-a-kind custom motorcycle masterpieces. The CVO™ Ultra Classic® Electra Glide® model offers three exclusive new color schemes, all adorned with concentrated glass and mirrors and hand-painted "Thunderblade" graphics highlights, for a dazzling, dramatic appearance. The 110th Anniversary Edition model comes in a characteristic commemorative Diamond Dust and Obsidian color finish. Skimping? The word's simply not in our vocabulary.

110th Anniversary Edition CVO™ Styling (Optional)

To commemorate 110 years of epic road adventures, we've crafted the absolute acme of custom style and premium features in our 110th Anniversary CVO™ models. Our CVO™ Ultra Classic® Electra Glide® Anniversary Edition motorcycle goes to the extremes of quality with unique top-of-the-line custom Anniversary treatments, including: an ultra-premium Anniversary paint scheme; Midnight Pearl Anniversary badging and medallions; a custom power train finish; and custom seating with exclusive inserts. If you're looking for rare treasures, these are the ultimate masterpieces of motorcycle art.

110th Anniversary CVO™ Gas Tank Medallion (Optional)

Each Anniversary Edition Harley-Davidson® motorcycle is a unique masterpiece marked as part of this historic celebration by its very own work of art: a 110th Anniversary commemorative cloisonné medallion featuring the Harley-Davidson Bar & Shield in bold black with Midnight Pearl finish. (Available only on CVO™ 110th Anniversary Edition models)

110th Anniversary Serialization Plaque (Optional)

Our Anniversary Edition bikes are exclusive and produced in limited quantities and they proudly bear the proof of it: placed in a different location on each model, this tastefully crafted cloisonné holds the Serialization Plaque that displays the bike's Anniversary Edition production number, marking your ride as an exclusive part of motorcycle history, one of a rare breed and a true one of kind. (Available only on CVO™ 110th Anniversary Edition models)

New Slipstream Collection Controls

The new 2013 Slipstream controls add a touch of top-of-the-line custom to the CVO™ Ultra Classic® Electra Glide® model. With a new design for 2013, the heated hand grips, gear shift pegs, footboard inserts, brake pedal, highway pegs and windshield-trim all feature that characteristic modern Slipstream look and quality. It’s premium custom touches like this—stylish and comfortable—that set our Custom Vehicle Operations™ models on a higher level.

GTX® Saddlebags and Tour-Pak® Luggage

These injection-molded hard bags have room for 2.26 cu. ft. volume of long-haul luxuries and a perfect surface for showing off some premium paint. Even better, these saddlebags open from the top, so your gear won't end up spilled all over the highway. They keep your fancy unmentionables dry, and the color-matched latches won't corrode in bad weather. And when you're off the road, one common key starts the bike and gives you access to your saddlebags, keeping your pockets as uncluttered as your bike's refined design. The premium Tour-Pak® carrier adds to the luxury look and gives you even more space to pack gear for the road. And we add another layer to the mix with exclusive Custom Vehicle Operations™ saddlebag and Tour-Pak® carry-out liners. Dual-direction zippers for more access. Side pockets for your quick-reach items like cell phones, keys and wallet. Rubber bottoms that keep the insides dry and clean, d-rings that let you clip on attachments, and shoulder straps for easy transport.

Color-matched Wraparound LED Running and Brake Taillight

The back end of the CVO™ Ultra Classic® Electra Glide® model demonstrates once again the premium style and innovative engineering you'll find with the Custom Vehicle Operations™ at Harley-Davidson®. The taillight features an integrated color-matched wraparound brake light for a clean look. And with the LEDs, you get additional style, increased visual footprint at night and long-lasting light.

Chrome Dual Exhaust

The premium custom look goes the distance on the CVO™ Ultra Classic® Electra Glide® model with the chrome dual exhaust. Featuring 4-inch touring mufflers, chrome billet end caps with black spears and chrome touring exhaust shields. Relish in the rumble and performance of these high-end pipes.

Mirror Chrome Chisel Custom Wheels

Aggressive yet balanced, every element of the CVO™ Ultra Classic® Electra Glide® model is painstakingly designed to deliver the most luxurious riding experience—and that includes the chrome chisel wheels with matching open rotors. With a 17-inch front wheel and a 16-inch in back, this Ultra boasts smooth, nimble handling no matter where your journey takes you.

Hand Finished Fuel Tank

Harley-Davidson® fuel tanks are finished by hand—that's what makes them stand out from the competition. Their seamless design and unmatched style are unique among all motorcycles on the road. The tanks are one of the first and last things people notice when they lay their eyes on a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle—so we make it worth their time. And a classically styled, bold six-gallon fuel tank doesn't just give you a bigger canvas for premium or custom paint; it holds six gallons of go so you can eat up a lot more road between pit stops.

Twin Cam 110™ Engine Heritage

The knowledge of what makes an engine truly move a rider runs deep at The Motor Company, and it was put to good use when we created the Twin Cam 110™ engine. We sweated bullets perfecting every cubic inch, pushing design and technology forward. And we did it all without compromising one bit of Harley-Davidson's unique styling. Evolved, yet carrying on the legacy of the Flathead, Knucklehead, Panhead, Shovelhead, Evolution® and Twin Cam 88® engines that came before. The performance and durability are a direct result of the untold miles logged on the V-Twin since 1909, and the proud heritage that comes from a century's worth of commitment to life on two wheels.

Twin Cam 110™ Engine Innovation

Fire up the Twin Cam 110™ engine and feel the low-end torque unleashed. The colossal 110™ cubic inches provide seemingly endless torque with adrenaline-pumping pull through all six gears. Boasting the largest-displacement V-Twin engine by Harley-Davidson, the Twin Cam 110™ engine produces 118 ft. lbs. of torque at 3750 rpm. Six speeds. A strong driveline and a low cruising rpm couldn't feel better.

Pure Harley-Davidson® Styling

Feast your eyes on the Twin Cam 110™ with Screamin' Eagle engine badges and there's no mistaking its roots. This is authentic Harley-Davidson style through and through with an attention to detail you won't find from any other motorcycle company. Granite heads and cylinders feature machined cooling fin tips and are highlighted by chrome rocker covers. Exclusive to Custom Vehicle Operations™, the granite powertrain and Twin Cam 110™ badging are unapologetically distinguished. (The 110th Anniversary Edition CVO™ Ultra Classic® Electra Glide® model's engine comes with a custom black and chrome power train with gloss black covers.) It's a jewel machined out of metal. Pure. Dripping with power. From the classic edge of the cooling fins to the clean lines of cases and covers—the Twin Cam 110™ engine makes an ironclad statement to holding on to what's right and staying true to what satisfies the rider.

Six-Speed Cruise Drive®

You want a ride that rumbles—not begs for mercy—when you lean on it a little. The Six-Speed Cruise Drive® transmission provides smooth, quiet shifting and reduces engine speed on the highway, so you get a better match between engine RPM and road speed and road speed. And the Isolated Drive System makes acceleration flow in a smooth, steady stream from your wrist right down to the pavement. It's a rare ride when a bike responds like this, and a low growl goes a long way when you're opening up the road ahead.

Ventilator' Intake with Screamin' Eagle® 110™ Insert

Everything about the Twin Cam 110™ Engine is a testament to the premium styling and performance you get with a limited Custom Vehicle Operations™ motorcycle. Right smack between the engine jugs rests the high-flow 'ventilator' intake with high-flow filter element, back plate, diamond-cut, charcoal Screamin' Eagle badge and protective rain sock (or Midnight Pearl inserts on the 110th Anniversary Edition). Your bike will breathe easy while the increased air flow boosts the raw power. Unique and exclusive. That is what Custom Vehicle Operations is all about.

Road Tech zumo® 660 Navigation System

You may know where you're headed, but this little dandy helps you get more out of every mile. The quick-mount cradle makes it easy to mount and detach and it plays nice with the bike's tight lines. Designed by bikers for bikers, its large control-icons are glove-friendly, and it's preloaded with City Navigator® NT street maps and markers for H-D® dealers, motels, restaurants, fuel, ATMs and anything else you might need while out on the road.

Anti-Lock Brakes

When it comes to the CVO™ Ultra Classic® Electra Glide® model with optional ABS, "stopping power" has a double meaning. We've incorporated the components of our ABS within the wheel hub without sacrificing any of the bike's iconic custom style, so you'll still turn heads with a clean, streamlined design. More importantly, though, you get certainty in the saddle knowing your bike's going to behave when you need it.

Tour-Pak® Luggage-Mounted 12V Power Supply

Whether you need a quick charge for your cell phone or dinner from a hotplate on a lonely stretch of road, knowing you've got 15 amps of power to get through the day or night goes a long way. And don't worry about pesky rain spoiling your power supply—the spring-loaded cap keeps the receptor dry and free of road muck.

Electronic Cruise Control

If you're ready to take Touring to the next level, the cruise control feature will help you settle in for the long haul. Get the comfort of the cruise without the cables cluttering up your handlebar. Our electronic throttle control technology makes it possible to have the best of both worlds.

Artfully Hidden Technology

Harley-Davidson leverages the latest in technology without compromising style and function. That means we hide electronics. The whole wiring harness is skillfully routed behind the jewels of the bike—the tank, engine and all the other eye-popping features you want to see. It's just another way The Motor Company goes the extra mile to give its bikes that premium, top-of-the-line fit and finish.

Intuitive Controls

Hand controls on a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle are incredibly intuitive. The turn signals are self-canceling and, based on the speed and angle of the motorcycle, they know how long to stay on. Engaging the controls quickly becomes second nature so you can focus less on turning off your signal and more on basking in the freedom of the ride.

iPod® Port (iPod® Included)

Just having the juice to let loose isn't enough to call this system custom. It's your tunes that tell the story of your life on two wheels. With an iPod® dock in the right-hand saddlebag, a module integrated into the radio, and the intuitive controls right at your fingertips, the music is now yours, and that story is yours to write. We'll even throw in an exclusively-designed 8GB iPod® Nano.

Harman Kardon® Audio with BOOM!™ Audio Features

Naturally, the king of the road gets some royal extras. When it comes to hearing your tunes or just keeping your own chatter free and easy, the premium Harman Kardon audio system has it all: 4 speakers (2 up front and 2 in back) with an amplifier that distributes 40 watts per channel, an AM/FM receiver, XM Satellite Radio capability, CD and MP3 player—even an intercom and CB. It's loud, it's proud and yeah, it might as well go to 11. Plus, the system's BOOM! Audio High-Performance BOOM! Bagger speakers with customized equalization for BOOM! audio, and added BOOM! Audio Bass Booster Tour-Pak® Ports will have you blasting deep bass as you're booming down the boulevard. Sure, that's a lot of boom, but we figure you can handle it.

Brembo® Brakes

Confidence. Control. High-performance dual disc Brembo® brakes offer consistent stopping power. The 4-piston front and rear calipers with dual front rotor brake system is state of the art and top of the line. It's just another way The Motor Company puts a high level of detail into their bikes to give you peace of mind throughout your journey.

Tuned to Be Ridden

Harley-Davidson® motorcycles are different than any other bike out on the road. There's a balance to them. The steering, the maneuverability—it's all in concert. And each Harley-Davidson® model is tuned differently to create a unique riding experience for each individual no matter which bike they swing their leg over. Let's face it, we didn't get to where we are by being like everyone else.

Custom Suspended Dual Control Heated Seat with Passenger & Rider Backrest

Need help convincing someone to let you buy your CVO™ dream bike or come touring with you? This is for them. With its suspended, dual control design, this custom seat with leather inserts (on the standard model) offers the ultimate in touring luxury for rider and passenger, mile after mile. It sits low and it's trimmed in at the thighs for ultra-comfortable long-hauling. Its suspension feature acts as a secondary shock absorber. The embroidered H-D Bar & Shield passenger backrest is plush and cozy, with adjustable lumbar support. With all that plus in-seat heating, even the most finicky hangers-on will be happy to keep on going.

Heated Slipstream Collection Hand Grips

When the chill gets at you, just having a little heat would be nice enough. But this is a Harley-Davidson® Custom Vehicle Operations™ motorcycle and we're all about the details. Our heated Slipstream Collection hand grips have six settings, so you can easily adjust on the fly for the heat you need with the versatility and control you've come to depend on.

Full-Length Footboards with Extended Heel Shift Lever

Your boots were made for riding, in comfort, and any way you see fit. Our full-length footboards boast a tried and true design that's stood the test of time and rubber isolation that spares you from vibration. New for 2013, we've added even more comfort with a redesigned extended reach heel shift lever that makes getting through the gears quick and easy and gives your foot more room on the left-side board. Plus, height adjustable passenger boards add another level of comfort for your riding partner.

2-1-2 Exhaust

Welcome to the crossroads of pure Harley-Davidson® style and smart engineering. The 2-1-2 exhaust helps direct heat away from the rider and passenger, while providing ample performance, and signature Harley-Davidson® rumble, and big style.

Engine Idle Temperature Management System

Our motorcycles are built to be ridden. A lot. So that means that rider comfort is top of mind. Always. The Engine Idle Temperature Management System (EITMS) feature shuts off fuel to the rear cylinder when the bike is at idle and the engine reaches a certain temperature, so it can cool off as the engine idles only on the front cylinder. Best part, you can easily turn this feature on or off yourself whenever the bike is stopped.

2013 Harley-Davidson FLHTCUSE8 CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide - Press Release

NEW MODELS AND NEW OPTIONS FROM HARLEY-DAVIDSON FOR 2013
110th Anniversary Editions, Hard Candy Custom Styling, and a Restyled Street Bob

MILWAUKEE (August 20, 2011) – Harley-Davidson rolls into its 110th model year with a line of authentic American motorcycles that includes 110th Anniversary Editions of select Harley-Davidson® motorcycle models and a restyled Dyna® Street Bob® model. Harley-Davidson Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) offers two new models, the CVO Breakout , a high-performance Softail® model with exciting new finish options, and the CVO Road King®, fitted with an innovative vented windshield and high-output audio system.

Also new for 2013, Harley-Davidson launches Hard Candy Custom , a styling movement rooted in themes first seen in the chopper era of the late 1960s that embraces dazzling metal flake paint, brilliant chrome, and styling details in accessories, gear and apparel. Hard Candy Custom elements include "big flake" paint finishes, three of which will be selectively offered as a solid-color option on five Harley-Davidson production motorcycles for 2013.

H-D1 Factory Customization expands with the Street Bob joining the 1200 Custom as Harley-Davidson models in the web-based program that allows customers to select factory-installed options in more than 2,000 combinations, build a bike on the screen, and then order it through an authorized Harley-Davidson dealer.

More than a century of experience, knowledge and riding passion lies behind each 2013 Harley-Davidson.

Highlights of the 2012 Harley-Davidson line include:

Ten Harley-Davidson models are offered as 110th Anniversary Editions, each serialized and featuring exclusive paint and commemorative solid bronze fuel tank badges. Production will vary by model and will be strictly limited to ensure exclusivity. These models come with all available factory-installed options as standard equipment. (See separate release for more details on the 110th Anniversary Editions.)

The Harley-Davidson® Street Bob® gets a tougher profile for 2013 with new blacked-out triple clamps and powertrain, and a chopped rear fender with side-mounted license plate and stop/turn/tail lights. This rowdy Dyna bobber features a solo seat and mini-ape handlebar mounted on new risers that make it easier to customize the Street Bob. New paint options include Hard Candy Custom metalflake and a scalloped two-tone option. (See separate release for more details on the 2013 Street Bob.)

The Street Bob serves as a great starting point for customization, and now along with the 1200 Custom it can be personalized through H-D1 Factory Customization with options selected by the customer using the online Bike Builder on Harley-Davidson.com, and installed as the motorcycle is assembled by the Harley-Davidson Motor Company. By choosing from different wheels, paint and engine finishes, the customer can dramatically alter the look of the motorcycle. Different combinations of foot-control location, seat choices and handlebar can be selected to adjust the fit of the motorcycle to rider stature.

Hard Candy Custom embraces a trend that's reemerged from garages around the globe. Now the sparkle of Hard Candy Big Red Flake, Hard Candy Lucky Green Flake and Hard Candy Coloma Gold Flake can be ordered as Original Equipment paint and serve as the foundation for personal customization. At least one Hard Candy Custom color will be offered on these Harley-Davidson motorcycle models: Seventy-Two , Street Bob®, Blackline®, Softail® Deluxe, and Forty-Eight . New and recently introduced Genuine Motor Accessory and Harley-Davidson® MotorClothes® items extend the Hard Candy Custom theme. (See separate release for more details on Hard Candy Custom.)

The 2013 CVO series of limited-production premium custom motorcycles features the new CVO Breakout®, a bold Softail® model that takes production motorcycle finishes to a new level with two paint schemes that feature hand-polished steel sections on the fuel tank and fenders. The CVO Road King® offers the first factory-installed Road King® audio system, and the new detachable Vented Wind Splitter windshield. The super-premium touring CVO Ultra Classic® Electra Glide® and shark-nose CVO Road Glide® Custom bagger return with new features for 2013. (See separate release for more details on the 2013 CVO line.)

The versatile Harley-Davidson® Sportster® line includes five models, plus the Sportster® 1200 Custom Anniversary Edition. New colors and graphics are offered on all Sportster® models.

The traditional "hard tail" lines of the Harley-Davidson Softail® platform are offered on six models, including the Softail® Slim , a back-to-basics 1950's-style bobber introduce mid-year 2012. The 2013 Fat Boy® now features Mirror Chrome Aluminum Bullet Hole Disc wheels as standard equipment. The Softail® line also includes Heritage Softail® Classic Anniversary Edition and the Fat Boy® Lo Anniversary Edition.

Eight Harley-Davidson® Touring models, from the slammed-and-trimmed Street Glide® to the fully equipped Electra Glide® Ultra Limited, are ready to tackle the long road with fresh color and graphics options. The Road King® Anniversary Edition and Electra Glide® Ultra Limited Anniversary Edition are available in limited quantities for 2013.
The smooth-handling 2013 Dyna® line includes the re-styled Street Bob and four more models, plus the Super Glide® Custom Anniversary Edition.

The aggressive Harley-Davidson® V-Rod® power-cruiser line features the Night Rod® Special and V-Rod Muscle®, each available in new colors for 2013.

Riders looking for a Trike option with Harley-Davidson quality can turn to the Tri Glide® Ultra Classic®, also available Tri Glide® Ultra Classic® Anniversary Edition to celebrate a milestone.
