2009 Harley-Davidson FLHTCUSE4 CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide

Delivering an exclusive design combo of the nostalgic Springer front end and a wide 240 mm rear tire and fender, Harley-Davidson Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) rolls out a truly original motorcycle with the 2009 CVO Softail Springer. Based on a totally unique frame design with wide, fully polished and chrome-plated swing arm, fully polished chrome cast aluminum oil tank and a host of premium components and accessories, the CVO Softail Springer stands alone in the factory custom category.

As one of just two 2009 Harley-Davidson models with the quintessential Springer front fork design, the CVO Softail Springer presents a spiritual and exhilarating ride with authentic look and feel. The faithfully styled front end rides on an 18 x 3.5-inch Road Winder wheel and 130 mm tire with a new four-piston brake caliper with chrome forged mount, color-matched rigid forks and chromed spring components. The new wide 240 mm rear tire and custom Bobtail wide rear fender with louver accents ride on a new 18 x 8-inch Road Winder forged chrome wheel.

The third edition creation from Harley-Davidson CVO melds time honored Harley-Davidson engineering technology and styling creativity with an exclusive Screamin’ Eagle Twin Cam 110B engine, stunning Genuine Motor Accessories and sizzling color options.

With a new, exclusively designed frame, chrome swingarm and specially tuned suspension, the CVO Springer is a Softail unlike any other. The custom seat with Buffalo inserts highlighted by contrast embroidered flames and CVO logo stretches to a custom full-length chrome fuel tank console and is topped with a five-inch speedometer with spun aluminum face. The forward facing exposed Heavy Breather intake carries a special “110” tube emblem and chrome end cap. Other new components include a chrome slash-down staggered dual mufflers with full length exhaust shields, Bullet mirrors with shortened stems, and chrome-plated dipstick, fork inserts, fender struts and covers, swingarm pivot bolt covers, axle nut covers, tank emblems and wheel spacers.

The Harley-Davidson CVO group creates limited-production, exclusive motorcycles produced by a team of highly skilled technicians in a special assembly area at the Harley-Davidson plants in York, Pa., and Kansas City. Approximately 2,500 of the 2009 CVO Softail Springer will be assembled at the York Vehicle Operations facility. The suggested U.S. retail price for the 2009 CVO Softail Springer is $26,999 ($27,099 in California).

The CVO Softail Springer also features exclusive granite and chrome treatment on the largest-displacement production engine offered by Harley-Davidson. The Screamin’ Eagle 110-cid (1800cc) Twin Cam 110B, a high-performance V-Twin engine, delivers top performance with 110 ft. lbs. of torque at 3000 rpm thanks in part to the free flowing Heavy Breather intake. The engine is rigid-mounted in the Softail frame, equipped with internal counter-balanced shafts and is mated to a 6-speed Cruise Drive transmission for lower cruising rpm in top gear.

The Centerline accessory collection returns for 2009 with grips, footpegs and brake and shifter pedals, and horn cover. Chrome accessorized components include the brake and clutch master cylinders, voltage regulator, switch housings, belt guard, debris deflector and shift lever. Front and rear brakes include Road Winder rotors and the calipers match the Granite engine treatment.

The CVO Softail Springer will be offered in three exclusive color combinations for 2009: Black Diamond with Emerald Ice Flames, Candy Cobalt with Blue Steel Flames, and Sunrise Yellow Pearl with Volcanic Fury Flames. The metal grind flames are topped with Candy highlights making every vehicle truly custom. All models feature color-matched frame, rigid fork and top clamp, frame inserts, and a headlight bucket with custom graphics. A Harley-Davidson Smart Security System with Smart Siren, an indoor storage cover with CVO logo, and unique Harley-Davidson CVO key in a presentation box are also included.

 

There is simply no better way to cover big miles and ride great country roads than aboard the 2009 Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) Ultra Classic Electra Glide from Harley-Davidson.

The CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide melds custom paint, a potent powertrain and a well-chosen array of top line Harley-Davidson Genuine Motor Accessories to the all-new 2009 Harley-Davidson Touring chassis. The result is perhaps the most exciting touring motorcycle ever to roll over the horizon.

The skeletal structure of the CVO Ultra is all new from the front wheel to the wide rear tire. This new Touring line has a modular frame for enhanced maneuverability, a new 180 mm rear tire with a higher weight rating, a new 2-into-1-into-2 exhaust system and other enhancements that set a foundation for the next generation of Harley-Davidson Touring motorcycles. The CVO Ultra is powered by the CVO-exclusive granite coated Screamin’ Eagle Twin Cam 110-cid (1800 cc) engine, the largest displacement production engine offered by Harley-Davidson, producing 113 ft. lbs. of torque at 3750 rpm, as well as the smooth shifting 6-speed Cruise Drive transmission.

As part of a most discerning and well-traveled group of motorcyclists, CVO Ultra riders will enjoy extra amenities for 2009 such as a Tour-Pak mounting rack with increased carrying capacity, mid-frame air deflectors, and lighting and electrical updates that include shorter antennas. These features complement and preserve the commanding Ultra design along with mechanical features like Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI), six-gallon fuel tank, Brembo brakes and Anti-lock Braking System (ABS).

While ABS is designed to help maintain control during emergency stopping situations, especially those that happen in less than ideal conditions, the CVO Ultra also features Brembo front and rear brakes for maximum performance, feel and look.

The 2009 CVO Ultra rides on new Roulette wheels with a 180 mm, 16-inch rear tire and 130 mm, 17-inch front tire. For that extra comfort, there is the new suspended, dual-heated seat with shark print leather inserts. Newly styled foot controls and heated hand grips are called by the name Rumble Collection, which includes windshield trim, mirrors and saddlebag latches.

Other new components on the 2009 CVO Ultra include a matching rider and passenger backrest, Tour-Pak inserts, CB pod inserts, chrome push-button fuel door with CVO logo, smooth air cleaner cover, Screamin’ Eagle 110 air cleaner cover insert, two-inch backlit gauges, braided stainless steel clutch and brake lines, custom oil cooler with chrome cover and the Air Wing Tour-Pak luggage rack.

The Harley-Davidson CVO program creates limited-production, exclusive motorcycles produced by teams of technicians in a special assembly area at the Harley-Davidson plants in York, Pa., and Kansas City. Approximately 4,200 examples of the 2009 CVO Ultra will be assembled at the York Vehicle Operations facility. The suggested U.S. retail price for the 2009 CVO Ultra is $35,499 ($35,699 in California).

Based on the Harley-Davidson Ultra Classic Electra Glide, the CVO Ultra offers premium amenities from that model such as 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 and integrated navigation system. The bike is also protected by the Harley-Davidson Smart Security System with Smart Siren.

CVO Ultra features also include a power-locked saddlebags and Tour-Pak locking system with integrated key fob activation, internally wired handlebar with Electronic Throttle Control, oil filter mount with internal thermostat and chrome voltage regulator. The CVO Ultra rides on the Touring-exclusive air-adjustable rear suspension. Instruments with spun-aluminum metal faces are mounted below a custom black-leather inner fairing pad with chrome trim.

The CVO Ultra will be offered in three exclusive color combinations: Ruby Red and Typhoon Maroon with Forge-tone graphics, Autumn Haze and High Octane Orange with Forge-tone graphics and Stardust Silver and Twilight Blue with Forge-tone graphics. The vented lower fairings and inner fairing and switch panel are color-matched to the selected paint scheme. An indoor storage cover with CVO logo and a unique Harley-Davidson CVO key in a presentation box are also included.

Key CVO Features

The pride and passion that define Harley-Davidson and its riders are prominent in the Motor Company’s Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) line of motorcycles. As the upper echelon of the motorcycle world, CVO models are hand-built with detailed craftsmanship and stand as the most desirable custom motorcycles available.

The 2009 model year marks the 10th anniversary of the Harley-Davidson CVO program. An effort that began a decade ago as a response to rider requests for factory custom motorcycles has evolved into the top class of its industry, proving that production is really the only limit when it comes to making Harley-Davidson CVO motorcycles.

“Features like bigger engines, exclusive accessories and custom paint and colors, combined with limited production quantities make the Harley-Davidson CVO motorcycles truly unique and inspirational,” said Matt Levatich, Harley-Davidson Vice President and General Manager, Parts & Accessories and CVO. “The CVO bikes were introduced to meet customer desires and they have fulfilled our riders’ ultimate dreams with miles of memories and great riding for a decade. We expect the unique CVO experience to continue for years to come.”

The Harley-Davidson CVO line for 2009 includes the following four models:

CVO Fat Bob
CVO Road Glide
CVO Softail Springer
CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide

The Fat Bob is a first-time CVO offering, while the Road Glide, Softail Springer and Ultra Classic Electra Glide all enjoy a storied history with the program. The CVO bikes are based on Harley-Davidson factory models, but are then taken to a new level of customization with an abundance of Harley-Davidson Genuine Motor Accessories. (Please see separate press releases on each model for more detail)

Highlights of the 2009 Harley-Davidson CVO motorcycles include a Screamin’ Eagle Twin Cam 110 engine (1800 cc) finished in granite powdercoat on all models, integrated stop/turn/tail lights on the Road Glide rear section, new Fang cast wheels on the CVO Fat Bob, 240 mm wide rear tire and unique frame and oil tank on the Springer, and Roulette wheels and new 180 mm wide rear tire on the CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide.

The launch of the CVO program began with the 1999 FXR2 and FXR3 models, and was so well-received that it was followed in 2000 by the FXR4. Also in 2000, the first edition of the FLTRSEI Road Glide was introduced, combining the latest touring design and Screamin’ Eagle performance parts. While initial annual production of CVO models was limited to about 900 units per model, output has increased to current ranges of between 2,450 and 4,200 units for each model.

What followed during the last decade was a series of some of very memorable motorcycles, including CVO variations on the Dyna Wide Glide, Road King, Softail Deuce, Fat Boy and Electra Glide. In addition, the CVO program boasted the 2005 Screamin’ Eagle V-Rod with its 60-degree, 1250 cc liquid cooled V-Twin engine and the 2006 Screamin’ Eagle Destroyer, designed specifically for drag racing with a 1300cc Screamin’ Eagle Revolution powertrain.

The Harley-Davidson CVO group consists of a select group of engineers, designers and supply management staff, who work together with Harley-Davidson Styling to create these limited-production, custom motorcycles. The CVO models are then produced by highly skilled technicians in special assembly areas at the Harley-Davidson plants in York, Pa., and Kansas City.

2009 HARLEY-DAVIDSON CVO ULTRA TOURS IT UP

MILWAUKEE (July 22, 2008) – There is simply no better way to cover big miles and ride great country roads than aboard the 2009 Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) Ultra Classic Electra Glide from Harley-Davidson.

The CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide melds custom paint, a potent powertrain and a well-chosen array of top line Harley-Davidson Genuine Motor Accessories to the all-new 2009 Harley-Davidson Touring chassis. The result is perhaps the most exciting touring motorcycle ever to roll over the horizon.

ROAD GLIDE, FAT BOB LEAD CUSTOM VEHICLE OPERATIONS LINE FOR 2009
Harley-Davidson Premium Custom Motorcycles Celebrate 10th Anniversary

MILWAUKEE (July 22, 2008) – The pride and passion that define Harley-Davidson and its riders are prominent in the Motor Company’s Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) line of motorcycles. As the upper echelon of the motorcycle world, CVO models are hand-built with detailed craftsmanship and stand as the most desirable custom motorcycles available.

The 2009 model year marks the 10th anniversary of the Harley-Davidson CVO program. An effort that began a decade ago as a response to rider requests for factory custom motorcycles has evolved into the top class of its industry, proving that production is really the only limit when it comes to making Harley-Davidson CVO motorcycles.

“Features like bigger engines, exclusive accessories and custom paint and colors, combined with limited production quantities make the Harley-Davidson CVO motorcycles truly unique and inspirational,” said Matt Levatich, Harley-Davidson Vice President and General Manager, Parts & Accessories and CVO. “The CVO bikes were introduced to meet customer desires and they have fulfilled our riders’ ultimate dreams with miles of memories and great riding for a decade. We expect the unique CVO experience to continue for years to come.”

The Harley-Davidson CVO line for 2009 includes the following four models:

CVO Fat Bob
CVO Road Glide
CVO Softail Springer
CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide
The Fat Bob is a first-time CVO offering, while the Road Glide, Softail Springer and Ultra Classic Electra Glide all enjoy a storied history with the program. The CVO bikes are based on Harley-Davidson factory models, but are then taken to a new level of customization with an abundance of Harley-Davidson Genuine Motor Accessories. (Please see separate press releases on each model for more detail)

Highlights of the 2009 Harley-Davidson CVO motorcycles include a Screamin’ Eagle Twin Cam 110 engine (1800 cc) finished in granite powdercoat on all models, integrated stop/turn/tail lights on the Road Glide rear section, new Fang cast wheels on the CVO Fat Bob, 240 mm wide rear tire and unique frame and oil tank on the Springer, and Roulette wheels and new 180 mm wide rear tire on the CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide.

The launch of the CVO program began with the 1999 FXR2 and FXR3 models, and was so well-received that it was followed in 2000 by the FXR4. Also in 2000, the first edition of the FLTRSEI Road Glide was introduced, combining the latest touring design and Screamin’ Eagle performance parts. While initial annual production of CVO models was limited to about 900 units per model, output has increased to current ranges of between 2,450 and 4,200 units for each model.

What followed during the last decade was a series of some of very memorable motorcycles, including CVO variations on the Dyna Wide Glide, Road King, Softail Deuce, Fat Boy and Electra Glide. In addition, the CVO program boasted the 2005 Screamin’ Eagle V-Rod with its 60-degree, 1250 cc liquid cooled V-Twin engine and the 2006 Screamin’ Eagle Destroyer, designed specifically for drag racing with a 1300cc Screamin’ Eagle Revolution powertrain.

The Harley-Davidson CVO group consists of a select group of engineers, designers and supply management staff, who work together with Harley-Davidson Styling to create these limited-production, custom motorcycles. The CVO models are then produced by highly skilled technicians in special assembly areas at the Harley-Davidson plants in York, Pa., and Kansas City.
