2015 Harley-Davidson FLTRUSE CVO Road Glide Ultra Review

2015 Harley-Davidson FLTRUSE CVO Road Glide Ultra on Totalmotorcycle.com

The Road Glide® Ultra motorcycle brings the Road Glide® motorcycle back to the Harley touring line-up with maximum swagger, custom cvo style and long mile capability…

Tour with some swagger aboard the CVO™ Road Glide® Ultra motorcycle. The new frame-mounted fairing combines stylish menace with aerodynamic excellence, and was a big, blank canvas for the CVO styling team that devised a slashing new paint scheme to cover its flanks. Fine-tuned in a wind tunnel, the CVO Road Glide fairing has triple splitstream vents and a 13.5-inch touring windshield to virtually eliminate head buffeting. Special air deflectors under the fairing create a cooling jet stream over the legs of rider and passenger. An exclusive 1.25-inch diameter handlebar offers more pull-back and height to put the rider in an ideal long-haul posture.

The color-matched inner fairing holds a color Touch screen Boom!™ Box 6.5 GT infotainment system with 3D GPS, 6.5-inch Boom!™ Bagger speakers with 75-watt-per channel amplification. When the sun goes down, brilliant Dual Daymaker™ Reflector LED headlamps turn night almost to daylight. The influence of Project RUSHMORE includes Reflex™ Linked Brakes with ABS, One-Touch latches, stout 49mm forks, and a shotgun position with comfort that’s the envy of the touring world. A dual-control heated seat, Mirror Chrome Slicer Custom wheels, Premium pull-out luggage, back-lit hand control and dash switches and a high-output charging system are also standard equipment.

That stunning CVO paint is offered in three color combinations: Abyss Blue/Crushed Sapphire, Burgundy Blaze / Typhoon Maroon, and Carbon Dust/Autumn Sunset.

The 2015 Harley-Davidson® Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO)™ line-up wields big paint, killer wheels, massive power, exclusive technology, and custom-shop details to create four fabulous, limited-production factory custom motorcycles ready to stir the soul of the most demanding rider.

The all-new CVO™ Street Glide model is a hot-rod bagger boasting a new Boom! Audio system backed by 600 watts of power streaming through four bi-amped front and rear three-way speakers for exhilarating volume and clarity. Boasting best-in-class aerodynamic performance, the all-new CVO™ Road Glide Ultra model combines a full complement of premium touring amenities with triple splitstream vents on the all-new frame-mounted fairing. Long-haul travel with style is the mission of the CVO™ Limited model, refreshed for 2015 with new polished chrome Slicer wheels and the Airflow Collection of accessories. The nostalgic character of the CVO™ Softail® Deluxe model is updated with a new braking system and two-tone paint options.

Harley-Davidson CVO motorcycles are customized using exclusive components and paint treatments combined with numerous items from Harley-Davidson Genuine Motor Accessories. The CVO program is often used to introduce new custom components and techniques before they are offered as individual accessories.

Each Harley-Davidson CVO model is powered by a 110ci V-Twin engine, the largest-displacement Original Equipment engine offered by Harley-Davidson and only available from the factory in CVO motorcycles. The 2015 CVO Limited, CVO Street Glide and CVO Road Glide Ultra feature the Screamin’ Eagle® Twin-Cooled™ Twin Cam 110™ engine with a combination of air-cooled and precision liquid-cooling strategies to maintain peak performance under the most demanding loads and riding conditions.

The 2015 CVO Softail Deluxe is powered by the Screamin’ Eagle Twin Cam 110 V-Twin engine. All models are equipped with the Assist & Slip Clutch Pack that provides a slip feature on downshifts to reduce loading of the driveline, and hydraulic clutch actuation to reduce lever effort and maintenance. Harley-Davidson CVO models are factory-equipped with electronic cruise control, Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), keyless ignition and the H-D Factory Security System, and an indoor/outdoor storage cover with the CVO logo.

2015 Harley-Davidson FLTRUSE CVO Road Glide Ultra Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Project RUSHMORE – Control

Here are some of the innovations Project RUSHMORE led to: the Reflex™ Linked Brakes with ABS, the dual Daymaker™ Reflector LED Headlamps, brighter Tour-Pak® luggage carrier lighting, brighter turn signals, brighter brake lights, and a steering head with stiffer front forks. Locked-up tires are now history even when there’s wet pavement. We’ve made it feel even better to lean your way through a turn. Now you can see better. And we’ve made you more conspicuous to the cage-driving public. Because one thing we all agree on is this: bikes that work better make riders who ride better. Take a ride. See how good you can be.

Steering Head and Front Forks

Whether it’s a big sweeping curve or a set of tight turns, a Project RUSHMORE motorcycle feels rock-solid in the corners. We stiffened up the front end, increased the fork diameter to 49mm (an increase of 18 percent) and retuned the damping for a smoother ride. The responsiveness is dialed in.

Ergonomically Designed Hand Controls

It’s hard to enjoy the ride or keep your eyes focused on what’s coming down the road when you’re fussing and bothering with the switches on your handlebar. So we’ve worked over the hand controls on our touring bikes with as much passion as we’ve worked over our engine. We made the shape more ergonomic and located and angled them to fall right under your thumbs. We’ve added left-hand cruise for easy activation, toggle switches to control infotainment functions, and an easily locatable trip trigger switch to control and scan through functional readouts. And we’ve improved the feel to give you a confidence-inspiring click at every push of a button. Even the dash panel switch gets better. And it’s all prewired for parts and accessories, which even lets you customize with less fuss and bother.

Reflex™ Linked Brakes with ABS

No doubt about it, there are times when you need to haul things down in a hurry. And you don’t get to pick those times. Or decide whether or not they occur when you’re on a flat, smooth, dry, perfect stretch of pavement. That’s why our touring models feature the Reflex™ Linked Brakes with ABS. ABS turns a locked-up front wheel or a rear wheel skid into a relic from riding’s history. And the front and rear brakes are electronically linked to provide exactly the right amount of brake to each tire no matter what the road condition is. No matter how good you are, this will make you a better rider.

Brembo® Brakes

Confidence. Control. High-performance dual disc Brembo® brakes offer consistent stopping power at all speeds. The 4-piston front and rear caliper 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.

New Dual Daymaker™ Reflector LED Headlamps

Here are the stats: 85% more spread and 6% more punch on low beam, 35% more spread and 45% more punch on high beam. These are the numbers. What they translate to on the road is not feeling like it’s time to park the bike when the sun goes down.

Dunlop® Multi-Tread™ Blackwall Tires

The 180mm back tire is engineered to do more than fill out the rear fender and put a bigger patch of rubber on the road. Dunlop® Multi-Tread™ technology uses harder compounds at the center and softer on the sides for a tire that still knows how to knuckle down on corners. Perfect for making this bike agile on every curvy stretch of road. And the way it feels going through an abrupt off-camber turn will put a grin on your face that’ll last to the next state line.

H-D® Smart Security System with Hands-Free Fob

The factory-installed next-generation security system features a hands-free fob that automatically arms and disarms the vehicle’s electronic security functions as you approach and walk away from the bike. Stick the fob on your ignition key ring and let it do all the work. It’s this attention to detail and security that makes Harley-Davidson® motorcycles unique.

Twin-Cooled™ Cooled 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-Cooled™ Twin Cam 110™ engine. We sweated bullets perfecting every cubic inch, pushing design and technology forward. This engine gives you at or near peak performance in all temperatures and operating conditions thanks to air and precision-cooled technology. 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 and Twin Cam 96™ 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-Cooled™ Twin Cam 110™ Engine Innovation

Fire up the Twin-Cooled™ Twin Cam 110™ engine and feel the low-end torque unleashed. Thanks to the lightweight piston design, delivery of the added power is more refined than ever. Ease out the rock-solid hydraulic clutch and feel how the engine and Six-Speed Cruise Drive® transmission were designed to work together. Six speeds. A strong driveline and strong internal parts. Low routine maintenance. And a low cruising rpm couldn’t feel better.

Twin-Cooled™ High Output Twin Cam 110™ Engine

If you started in 1909 with the very first Harley-Davidson V-Twin engine and worked your way up through every engine, every innovation, every improvement, every ride, every durability test in all those years and countless miles since, you arrive at the Twin-Cooled™ High Output Twin Cam 110™ engine. This is the top of the line. 110 cubic inches of air and precision cooled Harley-Davidson® V-Twin. Twin cooling cools the heads around the exhaust ports to deliver at or near peak performance under all operating conditions and temperatures. A higher compression ratio increases efficiency and horsepower. There’s an airbox for increased airflow and a redesigned cam to optimize low-end torque. It’s got the fastest 60 to 80 mph 5th gear roll on in the history of Harley-Davidson. Which means it’s got the most passing power in the history of Harley-Davidson. On top of all that, it puts less heat on the rider and passenger on scorching days and in stop-and-go traffic.

Six-Speed Cruise Drive® Transmission

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, and a low growl goes a long way when you’re opening up the road ahead.

Jukebox with USB Port for iPod/iPhone

The Jukebox opens easily and includes a USB connection which accepts your iPhone, iTouch, non-iPod imitators, and SD card and other USB compatible devices. Pop it open, plug in and your device becomes a part of your motorcycle. Ready to be operated by voice command or hand controls.

Voice Recognition, Bluetooth

The Boom!™ Box 6.5GT gives you voice recognition for hands-free operation of your mobile phone, navigation system and music. It’s also Bluetooth capable. Whatever you want, just say the word. Whether it’s directions to the next gas station, a call back to the office you’re not at today or a song that fits the stretch of road you’re on, it’ll be served up without missing a beat.

BOOM!™ Audio SiriusXM® Satellite Radio

Even when you end up in places where radio towers don’t reach, your favorite music, sports, talk and news are along for the ride on the CVO™ Limited model. BOOM!™ Audio SiriusXM® radio gives you over 175 digital channels, and coverage from coast-to-coast. Which means you won’t hit that point where the signal starts to fade, the sound gets full of static and you have to start scanning for stations. Instead, you just keep enjoying the song and the ride. You can also sign up for additional Specialty Services through SiriusXM, like graphical weather overlay, forecast, traffic and nearby fuel prices. You get all of these services at no additional charge for the first three months. After that, you can sign up for any or all of them through SiriusXM. BOOM!™ Audio is the ultimate. And this is the ultimate BOOM!™ Audio.

6.5-inch Full Color Touch Screen Display

This 6.5-inch full-color touch screen puts all your information in front of you bigger than ever. Modern graphics, colors you can dial in, and auto and manual dim. Designed to sit stylishly inside your fairing, it takes screen technology to an eye-popping level of Harley-Davidson functionality. This is more than you expect, but when you’re going all the way, it’s everything you deserve.

Boom!™ Box 6.5GT Radio

Let’s start with this. The Boom!™ Box 6.5GT Radio puts out 75 watts per channel at 1% distortion and features a factory-tuned, optimized equalizer that pumps out more power and can be played louder while maintaining the clarity of your sound. And the speed tuning system delivers more than just volume changes at different speeds. It changes the level of bass and treble to dial in the best sound, whether you’re running at a stately pace down the strip or going hell for leather down an open stretch of road. How do you like the sound of a Harley® motorcycle?

Project RUSHMORE – Comfort

We dialed in the comfort of our machines the hard way: over thousands of miles in all kinds of riding conditions on every kind of street, road and highway ever laid down in pavement. Experienced riders and passengers putting in long hours in the saddle and giving us feedback on every aspect that contributes to comfort on the road. Airflow, heat management, passenger space, back rests, seat textures, legroom and hand controls all went under the hard microscope of the road and got tested and re-tested by real riders and worked and re-worked by us until we were satisfied we had built the most comfortable machines on the road. We all want to go farther, and when you and your passenger are more comfortable in the saddle, you can.

New Handlebar

There’s a new handlebar on the CVO™ Road Glide® Ultra motorcycle this year that makes the riding position more comfortable for a wider range of riders. The hand grips are now 5 1/2″ closer to the rider. It means no long stretch to reach the bars, and you can sit in a more upright position.

Adjustable Air Ride Rear Suspension

The new CVO™ Road Glide® Ultra model gives you our premium adjustable air ride rear suspension.

New Fairing Design Reduces Head Buffeting

Over the years, riders of the Road Glide® Ultra motorcycle have put in more miles behind its fairing than you could count with a supercomputer. Its fatigue-reducing fixed frame design has made the Road Glide® motorcycle the choice of those who live to ride the big miles. It was good, but on the CVO™ Road Glide® Ultra model it gets amazing. We went into the wind tunnel and out on the road to build the next Road Glide fairing. When you experience what we came back with, you’re simply not going to believe the ride. No fairing in the history of motorcycling has ever cut through the wind like this one does. It’s got triple splitstream vents that open and close to equalize pressure in front and behind the windscreen. In head-buffeting tests, it beats every other motorcycle on the road. Hands down. You’ve never experienced a ride like this. And that’s what Project RUSHMORE was all about.

Back and Arm Rests

If you really want to know what makes a passenger comfortable, you start by asking people who’ve seen a good part of the world from the back of a bike. You run thousands of miles of road tests in heat, cold, sun, and rain. You use their input to perfect the height, the width, the shape, the contour, the texture of the leather, the lumbar support. You install controls that can be easily reached and operated with one hand. What you end up with is the back and arm rests you’re looking at right here. Passengers love them like they’re their own babies, because in a manner of speaking, they are.

Increased Passenger Seat Space and Leg Room

Here’s a message for all passengers: your time in the saddle has never been better. That goes quadruple when you’re 1,000 miles into the ride of a lifetime making the final leg of the day to get to the hot tub so you can relax for the evening. Because the longer the ride, the more you’ll appreciate the improvements we made when we introduced the Project RUSHMORE motorcycles last year. The passenger pillion is one inch wider and one inch longer. And we put 2 more inches of room between the speakers. We moved the saddlebag guards down for more legroom and to make sure they don’t rub your calves. It all adds up to a ride that provides best-in-class comfort.

Fairing Lowers

There’s no such thing as a minor irritation when you’re going to be experiencing it for tens of thousands of miles. The little things make a difference. Like the way the wind comes around your fairing lowers. We’ve got these fairing lowers dialed in just right, thanks to more wind tunnel and real world riding tests than we’ve ever done before. And the vents open with one touch when the going gets hot. You’ll appreciate them more with each passing mile.

Standard Cruise Control

Installing cruise control is standard operating procedure on the touring models because riding long stretches of unbroken highway is standard operating procedure among touring riders. Electronic throttle control means no cable cluttering up your handlebar. And the switches are placed where you can easily dial in your speed with your left thumb, give the wrist a break, and keep hauling on down the road.

Heated Hand Grips

When the chill gets at you, just having a little heat would be nice enough. But this is a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle and we’re all about the details. Our heated handgrips 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 & Toe/Heel Gear Shifts

Your boots were made for riding—any way you see fit. Our full-length footboards boast a time-tested, tried-and-true design and rubber isolation for a comfortable ride, while the height-adjustable passenger boards add another level of customizable comfort for your riding partner. And for shifting gears, you can use either the traditional toe-shift or the even easier, more convenient heel-shift. It might take a few rides, but once you’ve gotten used to the smooth shifting rhythm, you’ll never give it up.

Project RUSHMORE – Convenience

If you want the ride to be truly epic, you have to sweat bullets to make the little things work exactly right. This is what Project RUSHMORE was all about. Now you have saddlebags that can be easily opened with one hand. Compartments that open with one touch. And we’ve increased the storage space on these machines without ruining the sleek, road-eating look of the bike. It all adds up to hundreds of little moments where things just click conveniently into place. Because there can be no imperfections in the quest for the perfect ride.

High Output Accessory Connector

Touring means maximum comfort in all conditions and the capacity to add whatever enhances and personalizes your ride. The high output charging system provides an electrical capacity robust enough for your add-ons: heated vests, heated seats, heated handgrips, lights to showcase the engine, you name it. So if you’re hell-bent on two-wheeling it, we make sure you’ve got the juice to do it your way.

One-Touch Fuel Door

One button, one touch, fuel door open. Any questions?

Standard Battery Charging Harness

No question a battery charging harness is a must-have on a motorcycle. Now it’s standard. So you don’t have to waste even the ten minutes it takes to install one on some sunny Saturday when you could be riding.

Tour-Pak® Luggage Carrier Design

Like the saddlebags, the Tour-Pak® luggage carrier design sports a sleek look, but it didn’t come at the expense of storage space. They can easily accommodate two full-face helmets. There’s a document and toolkit pouch. The lock is integrated into the latch to keep your key away from your premium paint. And premium hinges that work better and look sharper. You can operate the single latch with one hand. Storage. Check. We have it covered.

Saddlebag Design

Don’t let the sleek look of these saddlebags deceive you. The look is tight on the outside, but things just got a little roomier on the inside. You want stuffability and these deliver bigger than ever. The hinges are simple and clean and the lids open with one touch of one hand. The lock is tight and integrated into the latch where you can put the key in without the danger of scratching your premium paint. And removable Travel Bags are standard. Welcome to the next level of the bagger.

One-Touch Design Philosophy

Here’s the rule we laid down for every compartment cover and saddlebag lid on our touring line: if it doesn’t open with the single touch of a button or one hand, while wearing gloves, it doesn’t go on the motorcycle. Because in all our conversations with riders, we’ve never encountered a single individual who wanted to have to put something on the ground before he could store it in a saddlebag.

Project RUSHMORE – Styling

Project RUSHMORE is the journey we set out on to take our touring motorcycles to places never imagined before – to turn all the possibilities for what a motorcycle can be now into true Milwaukee steel. We did it our way, as we’ve always done. As riders. Riding with other riders. Thousand of hours, countless road tests, millions of miles. Looking for the technology and innovations that truly make the ride better. We went over the bike fender tip to fender tip. Making it work better. Making it look sleeker. Modern. Clean. Tight. Let your eye take the journey over the machine. This is classic Harley-Davidson style and a sleek, modern look at the exact same time. At Harley-Davidson, form has always followed function. And both have always reported to emotion. Now we’re just doing it on a completely different level.

Pure Harley-Davidson Styling

Feast your eyes on the Twin-Cooled™ 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. 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 about holding on to what’s right and staying true to what satisfies.

Classic Fuel Tank

Part of the unmistakable style of the Harley-Davidson® CVO™ Road Glide Ultra® motorcycle is plenty of room for showing off your paint. This 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. We know fuel economy is important—but so is style. Sharp, eye-catching colors and precision-crafted Harley-Davidson® tank medallions complete the unique look of this tough bagger.

Exclusive CVO™ Motorcycle 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™ engine 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™ Road Glide® Ultra model offers three exclusive color schemes: Abyss Blue & Crushed Sapphire, Burgundy Blaze & Typhoon Maroon and Carbon Dust & Autumn Sunset. Skimping? The word’s simply not in our vocabulary.

Airflow Collection Accessories

The CVO™ Road Glide Ultra® motorcycle rolls off the line with a full complement of Airflow Collection accessories: rider footboard inserts, passenger footboard inserts, shifter pegs, brake pedal and cover, highway pegs, heated handgrips with rubber inserts, and shift lever arms. You want more and with the CVO™ Road Glide Ultra® motorcycle, more is what you get.

Restyled Fairing, Saddlebags, Tour-Pak® Luggage Carrier and Front Fender

The Road Glide® motorcycle is loved by die-hard road warriors all over the world for its distinctive, menacing, mile-hungry look. With Project RUSHMORE, we’re turning the dial up to 11. We streamlined the outer fairing and gave it a more narrow profile and a more modern, aggressive style. We put new, clean trim on the windshield. We cut back the front fender to show off more of the wheel. And we restyled the saddlebags and Tour-Pak® luggage carrier for a sleek, modern look (without sacrificing luggage space). The end result is a new take on the time-honored art of badass, road-eating motorcycle design. And the CVO™ Road Glide® Ultra model takes it farther than it’s ever gone.

New Chrome Slicer Wheels with New 90 degree Valve Stem

It’s hard to take your eyes off the new Chrome Slicer wheels on the new CVO™ Road Glide® Ultra motorcycle. But while you’re looking them over, notice the new 90 degree valve stem. This machine even makes putting air in your tires better than it was before.

New Color Matched Inner Fairing

There’s a lot to say about the inner fairing on the new CVO™ Road Glide® Ultra motorcycle. It’s color-matched to the paint on your bike. There’s a diamond-cut fairing cap, dual storage compartments and silver-faced gauges. Give it a once-over and you’ll also notice a bigger display screen and gauges that feature a 10 percent larger viewing area and wider, taller numbers. The information gets bigger and better too. There’s a gear indicator for all six gears, and the display area, which can now be operated by an extremely convenient trigger switch, puts more information at your fingertips. The temperature and fuel gauges are larger too. When you’re on the road, one quick glance tells you everything you need to know.

Chrome Tank Console with CB Pod

A custom diamond cut chrome tank console with a charcoal CB pod insert rides on top of the classic fuel tank of the CVO™ Road Glide® Ultra motorcycle. This is the kind of finish you get when you forge a motorcycle in the blast furnace of uncompromising attitude.

New 13.5 Inch Custom Windshield with Chrome Trim

The new CVO™ Road Glide® Ultra motorcycle puts thirteen and a half inches of custom style trimmed in chrome between you and the world’s flying insect population.

Tank and Fender Badges

This isn’t just a motorcycle. It’s a work of art, born out of passion, creativity and long days, late nights and refusing to be satisfied until every detail was perfect. When we added the signature, we did it with metal. Nothing else would be right on this masterpiece.

New Perforated Seat and Matching Adjustable Backrest

There are other ways to cover a motorcycle seat. But they don’t belong on a machine like the new CVO™ Road Glide® Ultra motorcycle. There are perforations on the seat and a matching adjustable backrest for the passenger. Leave compromising to the politicians.

Bullet Turn Signals

We went end to end and top to bottom to give the Harley-Davidson® Touring lineup the clean, tight, sharp, iconic look and feel that only befits the next generation of our motorcycles. The finishing touch – bullet turn signals with smoked lenses and amber bulbs. Sleek and modern, yet a timeless classic.

Combination Rear Stop/Turn/Tail Lights

The last thing people see when you go by on the CVO Road Glide Ultra® motorcycle is the clean, custom look of combination rear stop/turn/tail lights. You never get a second chance to make a last impression.

Airbox with Tank Panel-Matching Insert

Our design philosophy can be summed up pretty simply: form follows function, but both report to emotion. This airbox is a prime example of that. Function? It lets the engine breathe better for more power, but it’s also designed to provide better airflow around the rider. Form? The design of the insert matches the tank panel. Emotion? That’s the part you feel when you look at it sitting right at the center of your V-Twin engine.
