The Harley-Davidson® CVO™ Softail® Convertible is a limited-production custom motorcycle that can be configured for all-day touring, two-up cruising or solo profiling by adding or detaching key components, which can be easily removed or installed without tools.

TOUR OR CRUISE ON THE HARLEY-DAVIDSON CVO SOFTAIL CONVERTIBLE

A Combination Custom with Detachable Fairing and Bags, Big Power and Bold Paint

MILWAUKEE (July 25, 2009) – The 2010 Harley-Davidson CVO Softail Convertible has a split personality. With its compact fairing and smoked windshield providing protection from the elements, and leather-covered saddlebags to hold gear, the CVO Softail Convertible is a refined touring machine ready for a weekend get-away with a passenger comfortably supported by the wide pillion and padded backrest. But because each of these components can be quickly detached, the CVO Softail Convertible can be stripped down to reveal an alter ego. In just minutes, it’s an aggressive solo-saddle custom cruiser with bold paint, gleaming chrome, smooth lines and a massive engine, ready to prowl the boulevard in style.

Designed to be a “two-in-one” motorcycle, the CVO Softail Convertible can be configured for all-day touring, two-up cruising or solo profiling by simply adding or detaching key components, each of which can be easily removed or installed without tools.

Based on the Harley-Davidson Softail platform, the CVO Softail Convertible features a rear-suspension design that mimics the clean lines of a vintage hardtail frame, but offers the comfort of a modern suspension that is hidden under the chassis. A fuel-injected Screamin’ Eagle Twin Cam 110B V-Twin provides the CVO Softail Convertible with extraordinary power and thrilling performance.

Press Release #2

HARLEY-DAVIDSON CVO CREATES FOUR EXCITING MODELS FOR 2010

New CVO Street Glide and CVO Softail Convertible Debut Exclusive Features

MILWAUKEE (July 25, 2009) – Harley-Davidson Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) will create four extraordinary motorcycle models for 2010, each an uninhibited expression of American motorcycle performance and style. Now in its 11th year, the mission of the CVO program is to design and build limited-production, factory-custom motorcycles for customers who appreciate brilliant chrome, exquisite paint, thundering power and the exclusivity of owning and riding a very special motorcycle.

Harley-Davidson will offer two all-new CVO models for 2010.

2010 CVO Softail Convertible: Designed to be a “two-in-one” touring-and-cruising motorcycle, the CVO Softail Convertible features a new compact fairing, leather saddlebags, a passenger pillion, and upright with backrest that are each quickly detachable. A new full-coverage rear fender, a five-inch digital speedometer with analog tachometer, Stinger chrome aluminum wheels and Ventilator high-flow engine air intake all debut on the CVO Softail Convertible.

2010 CVO Street Glide: The ultimate hot rod bagger from Harley-Davidson, the CVO Street Glide features new 18-inch front and rear “Agitator” contrast chrome wheels, hydraulic rear shocks with adjustable preload, a low-profile custom seat with matching passenger backrest, and a lowered-and-trimmed front fender. New full-depth extended saddlebags are flanked with filler strips incorporating LED stop/tail/turn lighting.


Two CVO models are reprised for 2010 with new paint and features:

2010 CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide: This magnificent custom touring machine features a new flamed paint scheme, new LED saddlebag lights and LED King Tour-Pak brake/tail light. The seat and backrest have a new perforated leather insert. The backrest also now features adjustable lumbar support. New dimpled trim items and medallions are also included.

2010 CVO Fat Bob: Wide and muscular, the 2010 CVO Fat Bob debuts an exclusive new plating process called Midnight Pearl that is featured on the headlight shell, timer and derby covers, fender strut covers and other components. An all-new paint scheme is offered in three color combinations.
Each 2010 CVO model is powered by the fuel-injected Screamin’ Eagle Twin Cam 110 V-Twin, the largest-displacement engine produced by Harley-Davidson, rated at up to 115 ft. lbs. of torque. This engine is only available from the factory in CVO models.

Harley-Davidson CVO motorcycles are produced in limited numbers by a team of highly skilled technicians in a special assembly area at the Harley-Davidson production facilities in Kansas City, Mo., and York, Pa. CVO models are customized using existing components from the Harley-Davidson Genuine Motor Accessories catalog, and with many all-new custom parts that are exclusive to CVO models. 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 ROLLS OUT NINE NEW MODELS FOR 2010


More Performance, Features and Value Across Six Motorcycle Platforms

MILWAUKEE (July 25, 2009) – Harley-Davidson roars into 2010 with nine new motorcycle models, the most expansive new-product introduction in the history of the Motor Company. Across six model platforms, Harley-Davidson achieves a fusion of tradition and technology in a motorcycle product line that offers more power, luxury, and style, and more value.

“This ambitious new motorcycle launch reaches to our riders with the incredible passion that Harley-Davidson has inspired for more than a century,” said Bill Davidson, Harley-Davidson Vice President of Core Customer Marketing. “We are thrilled to offer our customers nine new models and a full selection of products for 2010 that lets their enthusiasm for enjoying great motorcycles continue at full throttle.”

Highlights of the 2010 Harley-Davidson® line include:

As the new king of the Harley-Davidson Touring line, the Electra Glide® Ultra Limited model delivers the performance upgrade of a Twin Cam 103™ engine, and features standard equipment items previously offered only as accessories on regular-production Harley-Davidson Touring models.
The new Road Glide® Custom model looks lean and mean, with a slammed suspension, 18-inch front wheel and a new 2-into-1 exhaust system.

The Wide Glide® returns as an all-new Dyna® model done in old-school chopper style, with black laced wheels, a chopped rear fender, black “wire” sissy bar, 2-1-2 Tommy Gun exhaust and an optional flame paint scheme. Priced starting at $14,499, the Wide Glide is also a great new value.
The new Street Glide® Trike brings stripped-down, hot-rod styling to the three-wheel category, and joins the Tri Glide™ Ultra Classic® in an all new Trike family for 2010.

Dressed in satin chrome and denim black, the new Fat Boy® Lo presents a darker and lower interpretation of the motorcycle that still defines the fat-custom segment.

The 2010 Street Glide® model gets even more hot-rod soul, with updates that include a larger front wheel, slimmed-down exhaust, and a new tail light assembly. Street Glide takes a classic Harley-Davidson Touring profile to a low, light and lean extreme.

No motorcycle on the road today matches the modern street attitude of the three exciting models in the Harley-Davidson VRSC™ family: V-Rod®, Night Rod® Special and V-Rod Muscle®. The explosive performance of the liquid cooled Revolution® V-Twin engine keeps VRSC at the top of the power cruiser food chain in 2010.

The American motorcycle legend that is Harley-Davidson Sportster® features six models for 2010, including the $7,999 Iron 883™ introduced mid-year 2009 and four others priced less than $10,000.
Harley-Davidson Custom Vehicle Operations™ (CVO™), masters of shimmering chrome and bold paint, offers four new limited-production models for 2010. The CVO Softail® Convertible is a versatile urban touring motorcycle, while the CVO Street Glide is a high-performance hot-rod bagger. The CVO Ultra Classic® Electra Glide® and CVO Fat Bob® models are refreshed for 2010 with new paint schemes and styling details. All CVO models are powered by a Twin Cam 110™ engine, the largest displacement V-Twin offered by Harley-Davidson.
