2012 Harley-Davidson FLHXSE3 CVO Street Glide Review

A low, lean and aggressive look, Screamin’ Eagle® power and dynamic high-output audio make this the definitive hot-rod bagger

2012 CVO Street Glide: A high-performance bagger with a fork-mounted bat-wing fairing, the CVO Street Glide has enhanced audio performance with a two-amp/eight-speaker system that includes speakers in the fairing, fairing lowers, and now also in the saddlebag lids. Also new is a low-profile solo touring seat with an embossed insert pattern, detachable passenger pillion and backrest pad, and Diamond Cut Charcoal engine cover inserts and instrument faces. Three new color combinations are available.

The popular Street Glide® model, tuned up, tricked out and packed full of serious power and radical style, gives you the 2012 CVO™ Street Glide®. Loaded with chrome, attitude, amenities, including a custom two-piece solo FL seat and detachable pillion and a dynamic audio system with an integrated iPod and eight custom speakers driven by an additional 400 watts of audio power, the CVO Street Glide boasts a low, lean profile, aggressive look and fresh, custom-styling ideas, making it a true hot-rod bagger.

The CVO Street Glide is built on the innovative Harley-Davidson Touring chassis, based on a single-spar, rigid backbone frame and swingarm developed to withstand the demands of long-haul touring riders.

 

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 paint. Big, tricked-out wheels. The perfect storm of engineering and style you’ll only find on a custom machine. And you’ll spoil yourself with all the features—from comfort to electronics to chrome. But the real signature of a Harley-Davidson Custom Vehicle Operations™ motorcycle is the power and sleek detailing of the huge Screamin’ Eagle® engine. It’s custom-built, not just for anyone, but for true connoisseurs of the road.

CUSTOM REAR END

Every aspect of the rear of the CVO™ Street Glide® model is designed and combined to form a unique whole. The full-depth saddlebags offer hauling capacity with a dramatic styling angle. Right under the saddlebags are the dual exhaust 4-inch Touring mufflers, billet end caps with contrast chrome and black accents and gleaming chrome exhaust shields. And shining from the seamless design are the striking LED combination stop-turn-taillight assemblies, with wires tastefully concealed. It all comes together to give you an integrated custom look, with the storage and extra convenience you’d expect from a top-of-the-line Touring machine.

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, custom paint; it holds six gallons of go so you can eat up a lot more road between pit stops.

SLAMMED & STREAMLINED TANK CONSOLE

The CVO Street Glide model tank console is slammed to sit low, with the fill cap and fuel gauge set flush to the tank to complement the overall streamlined design. But the feature that truly shines is the black console insert—complete with an LED back lit CVO™ logo—so there’s no doubt that this bike rolls with unmistakable Custom Vehicle Operations™ style.

BIG CUSTOM WHEELS

The CVO Street Glide has the largest front wheel ever offered on a Harley-Davidson® Touring bike. The Agitator front wheel is a full, bold 19 inches (18 on the rear). But size isn’t everything. You’ll still get that custom Agitator style—wheels with a seven spoke design, mirror chrome finish and matching full-floating brake rotors with a polished chrome center hub.

HIGH-IMPACT PAINT AND GRAPHICS

Individually crafted and hand finished, custom quality paint comes standard on all Harley-Davidson® Custom Vehicle Operations™ motorcycles. One-of-a-kind. Eye-catching. Jaw-dropping. And the CVO Street Glide’s three exclusive, all-new for 2012 combos up the ante and stir envy even more, with their blazing Phantom Flame graphics.

COLOR-MATCHED COMPONENTS

The whole point of customizing is to let your bike show your true colors. That’s why we make every inch count, with components that are color-matched or chromed-out. For 2012, the rear fascia panel, fender strut covers, saddlebag latches and back license plate light cover all coordinate in pure custom colors. While the slider covers, tank medallions and fairing skirts gleam in chrome. The sleek look of the new diamond-cut, charcoal gauges and inserts is just the icing on the cake.

SCREAMIN’ EAGLE® 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 Screamin’ Eagle® 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.

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 turnover 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 when you’re opening up the road ahead.

HYDRAULIC CLUTCH

Performance gets the custom treatment on Custom Vehicle Operations™ motorcycles. The addition of a high-performance clutch with hydraulic actuation helps make sure you’re getting a smooth, confident feel with just the right amount of effort and a hands-off reliability that’s only fitting. And you’ll love the confidence and control it lends when harnessing those 110 cubic inches of Screamin’ Eagle® power.

SCREAMIN’ EAGLE® 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 strong internal parts. And a low cruising rpm that couldn’t feel better.

PURE HARLEY-DAVIDSON STYLING

Feast your eyes on the Twin Cam 110™ engine 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. Exclusive to the Custom Vehicle Operations™ line, the granite colored powertrain with chrome covers and 110 badges is unapologetically distinguished. 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.

IPOD® PORT (IPOD® INCLUDED)

Just having the juice to let loose isn’t enough to call this system custom. The tunes themselves can tell the story of your life on two wheels. With an iPod®, 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. And we’ll even throw in the iPod® itself.

ACCESSORY CONNECTOR

Beyond the unique paint and graphics. Beyond the broad band of power. Beyond the cool custom features. You can enhance your Custom Vehicle Operations™ motorcycle even more by taking advantage of the exhaustive catalogue of Harley-Davidson add-ons and accessories. The accessory connector sits discreetly under the rider seat to the left, making sure that whatever add-ons you have for your bike are easily within your reach.

ELECTRONIC CRUISE CONTROL

If you’re ready to take touring to the next level, the standard cruise 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.

ANTI-LOCK BRAKES

When it comes to the CVO™ Street Glide® model, ‘stopping power’ has a double meaning. The components of our ABS are tastefully hidden within the wheel hub, 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.

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.

ENHANCED HIGH OUTPUT PREMIUM AUDIO

You’ll make big impression with more than just Screamin’ Eagle® power and CVO style. New for 2012, we boosted the CVO Street Glide’s sonic punch by adding a second 100W per channel amplifier and two more speakers with bridged tweeters in the saddlebag lids. That’s eight custom speakers and two amps kicking out a total of 400 watts of high-fidelity oomph, making this CVO Touring masterpiece a true “Boom Bagger.” So settle in, pump it up, and ride free.

LOWERED HYDRAULIC REAR SUSPENSION

Custom enhancements deliver the ultimate comfort and ride dynamics. You can even adjust your suspension preload to keep the ride as rigid or soft as you like. The hydraulic rear shocks have 40mm pistons and 14mm rods, so you get the rebound and damping you expect from a top-of-the-line Touring machine no matter what the road throws at you

TOURING CHASSIS

A true Touring bike has to be tough enough to take on thousands of miles for years to come. Our Touring chassis is designed to do just that. Based on a single-spar, rigid backbone frame and swingarm, it easily handles the hum of that big Screamin’ Eagle® engine, and it’s built to last. Perfect for riders that always take the scenic route.

LEGENDARY LOW SPEED MANEUVERABILITY

At The Motor Company, we believe you don’t make innovative, next-generation Touring motorcycles without shedding a little blood, sweat and tears. And when you get it right—like with the low speed maneuverability on our Touring models —all the other upgrades in the ride just combine to create a big-boned bike that is light and nimble while carving up tight turns or if you find yourself riding in a parade or group ride.

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.

FULL-LENGTH FOOTBOARDS

Your boots were made for riding, in any way you see fit. Our full-length rider footboards boast a tried and true design that’s stood the test of time. With a slightly larger board than in years past, you can rock plenty of foot positions for your taste and comfort. Rubber vibration isolation offers a comfortable ride every time. And heel and toe shifting makes getting through the gears quick and easy. Plus, the passenger footpegs 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 STRATEGY

Our motorcycles are built to be ridden. A lot. So that means that rider comfort is top of mind. Always. With the Engine Idle Temperature Management Strategy (EITMS) feature, the motorcycle automatically cuts fuel and fire from the rear cylinder when idling, which helps reduce engine heat felt by rider and passenger. Best part, you can easily turn this feature on or off yourself whenever the bike is stopped.

SLAMMED SEAT WITH DETACHABLE PILLION

Touring comfort meets custom style. This new low-profile, solo-styled 2-piece seat is pure pleasure for you and—with its Big Beast imprint leather inserts—for anyone who happens to stroll by your parking spot. It sits low to keep you snug to the bike, and we’ve added a matching detachable passenger pillion, matching passenger backrest pad, sissy bar, and grab strap that will keep your passenger happy to push on to the next state.

2012 Harley-Davidson FLHXSE3 CVO Street Glide – Press Release 1

2012 CVO BIKES OFFER STUNNING STYLE AND THRILLING PERFORMANCE

Four Models Include New CVO Road Glide Custom; Upgraded Infotainment on All Bikes

MILWAUKEE (July 20, 2011) – Harley-Davidson Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO)TM emphasizes exclusive styling and inspiring performance with four limited-production motorcycle models for 2012. Decked out with bold paint, gleaming chrome, high-output audio and the most-powerful V-Twin engines offered in production Harley-Davidson motorcycles, each CVO model is a rolling object of desire for the discerning motorcyclist.

Each 2012 CVO model is powered by the fuel-injected Twin Cam 110™ V-Twin, the largest-displacement engine offered in a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, rated at up to 122 ft. lbs. of torque. This engine is only available from the factory in CVO models. CVO motorcycles are customized using premium accessories and paint treatments combined with numerous items from the Harley-Davidson Genuine Motor Accessories catalog. The CVO program is often used to introduce new custom components and techniques before they are offered as individual accessories. Harley-Davidson CVO motorcycles are backed by a two-year, unlimited mileage warranty.

Harley-Davidson is offering an all-new CVO model for 2012:

2012 CVO Road Glide Custom: This hot-rod bagger combines a distinctive shark-nose, frame-mounted fairing with a road-hugging, slammed profile for a look that’s sure to turn heads. A high-output, amplified Harman/Kardon Advanced Audio radio features CD/AM/FM/WB and delivers 100 watts per channel to five-by-seven-inch fairing-mount speakers and two-inch dash-mount tweeters. An included 8GB Apple iPod nano connects via an interface and holder located in the right-side saddlebag. Exclusive custom features include a smoked Wind Splitter windshield; a two-piece custom seat with removable pillion and color-coordinated stitching and cover; and a color-matched, low-profile fuel tank console with illuminated CVO graphic insert. A 19-inch Contrast Chrome Agitator Custom front wheel leads this beauty down the road.

Three CVO models return for 2012 with new paint schemes and features:

2012 CVO Street Glide: A high-performance bagger with a fork-mounted bat-wing fairing, the CVO Street Glide has enhanced audio performance with a two-amp/eight-speaker system that includes speakers in the fairing, fairing lowers, and now also in the saddlebag lids. Also new is a low-profile solo touring seat with an embossed insert pattern, detachable passenger pillion and backrest pad, and Diamond Cut Charcoal engine cover inserts and instrument faces.

2012 Harley-Davidson FLHXSE3 CVO Street Glide – Press Release 2

MORE HARLEY-DAVIDSON MODELS WITH TWIN CAM 103™ POWER IN 2012

V-Rod® 10th Anniversary Edition and Dyna® Switchback Bagger Join the Model Line

MILWAUKEE (July 20, 2011) – Harley-Davidson offers more Big Twin performance for 2012 as its Twin Cam 103™ powertrain is standard equipment on Softail® and Touring motorcycle models and most Dyna® motorcycle models. Harley-Davidson will offer two new models for 2012. The V-Rod® 10th Anniversary Edition celebrates a decade of power-cruiser performance, while the new Dyna® Switchback is a convertible custom-touring motorcycle with detachable hard saddlebags and windshield. In addition, the Night Rod Special has significant updates for 2012 with refreshed bodywork and optimized rider ergonomics. Harley-Davidson Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO)TM rolls out the gleaming new CVO Road Glide® Custom, a limited-production, high-performance touring masterpiece.

Harley-Davidson believes every motorcycle it sells can be a custom of one. Harley-Davidson H-D1™ is a comprehensive offering of customization tools for the Harley-Davidson motorcycle owner. H-D1 tools include Harley-Davidson Genuine Motor Accessories listings in print and on-line catalogs, Fit Shop and consultation services at Harley-Davidson dealerships, and factory customization and Bike Builder tools on www.harley-davidson.com. H-D1 offers almost unlimited opportunities to optimize fit, function, style and performance and turn a Harley into a motorcycle that is truly personalized to its owner.

Harley- Davidson heads into 2012 with 32 models, each born of experience that spans generations and a passion for riding that will never diminish.

Highlights of the 2012 Harley-Davidson line include:

The Twin Cam 103™ engine powers all 2012 Dyna®, Softail® and Touring models with the exception of the Dyna Street Bob® and Dyna Super Glide® Custom. This engine produces up to 100 ft lbs. peak torque, an increase of approximately 6 percent over the Twin Cam 96 engine it replaces as standard power for many of these models. The Twin Cam 103 is equipped with automatic compression release. It features identifying badges on the derby cover, timer cover and air cleaner trim ring.

A Security Package that pairs Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Smart Security System with proximity-based, hands-free security fob is available for all 2012 V-Rod®, Dyna®, Softail®, Touring and CVO™ models. The Security Package is standard equipment on CVO™ models and on the Road Glide® Ultra, the Electra Glide® Ultra Limited, and the Road King® Classic. The Security Package is a factory-installed option for all other models.

The Night Rod® Special is updated with new tapered tail section, lighter-weight wheels, an inverted front fork and improved ergonomics. Harley-Davidson celebrates a decade of power cruising with the V-Rod® 10th Anniversary Edition motorcycle, finished in Brilliant Silver Pearl bodywork that evokes the anodized aluminum bodywork of the original V-Rod model that introduced the liquid-cooled Revolution V-Twin engine in 2002. All V-Rod models will carry V-Rod 10th Anniversary badges.

The new Dyna Switchback combines hard saddlebags and a windshield with the eager handling and Twin Cam 103 performance of the Dyna chassis. It’s a custom-touring bike ready for a long weekend trip, until the detachable bags and windshield are removed. Then in seconds the Switchback becomes a custom street cruiser with a gleaming headlamp nacelle, five-spoke cast-aluminum wheels and a mini-ape handlebar. This convertible concept makes the versatile Switchback two motorcycles in one.

All Harley-Davidson Softail models get the performance boost of the Twin Cam 103 engine for 2012. The Fat Boy and Fat Boy Lo have a new reduced-reach handlebar for more-comfortable ergonomics. A lower, narrower seat shape places the Fat Boy rider in a new “in the bike” position. The Softail Deluxe and Heritage Softail Classic will be available with a new optional “tubeless” Chrome Aluminum Profile Laced wheel option for ease of tire replacement and repair.

The Twin Cam 103 powertrain gives all Harley-Davidson Touring models assertive power for passing. On Touring models, the Twin Cam 103 is equipped with an oil cooler. All Touring models except the Ultra Limited will offer a new “tubeless” Chrome Aluminum Profile Laced wheel option.

The Harley-Davidson Sportster® line appeals to a broad range of riders with six 2012 models ranging from the race-inspired XR1200X™ to the accessible SuperLow® to Dark Custom roadsters like the Iron 883™, Nightster® and Forty-Eight®. The Sportster® 1200 Custom can be personalized for fit, function and style with H-D1 factory customization, a process that allows customers to use the Bike Builder tool on harley-davidson.com to build the motorcycle from a selection of options that are installed as the bike is assembled by Harley-Davidson Motor Company or are installed by a dealer after the motorcycle is delivered. New 1200 Custom color options have been added to Bike Builder for 2012.

The new CVO Road Glide Custom is one of four limited-production 2012 models from Harley-Davidson Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO)TM, each turned out with bold paint, gleaming chrome, and the most-powerful V-Twin engines offered in production Harley-Davidson motorcycles. CVO Road Glide Custom is a hot-rod bagger with a frame-mounted fairing topped with a smoked Wind Splitter windshield, a high-output, amplified Harman/Kardon® Advanced Audio system, and a color-matched, low-profile fuel tank console.
