The Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) line of motorcycles from Harley-Davidson represents the very best that the company has to offer. Each individual model represents the flagship of the company and stands to show its customization capabilities. According to H-D, the CVO owner isn’t just the average bike buyer off the streets. No, the CVO buyer represents the alpha customer that is not willing to settle for anything but the very best. And for that mater it culminates in a 110ci engine, a sea of chrome and premium accessories, exclusive paint schemes, and very limited quantities of each model, all backed by a two-year, unlimited mileage warranty.
2013 marks a special year in Harley’s history, 110 years of building iconic motorcycles that resonate worldwide. To celebrate the company is producing serialized 110th anniversary editions of Road King, Road Glide Custom, and Ultra Classic Electra Glide CVO models that will feature an exclusive Diamond Dust and Obsidian paint scheme accented with special badging and medallions.
CVO Road Glide Custom
For 2013 the Road Glide Custom receives a host of new upgrades most prominent of which includes the Daymaker headlamp. This LED headlamp is the first of it’s kind from H-D and includes a higher output that is 37 percent brighter on low and 31 percent brighter on high beams. The whiter and brighter light is truly amazing and hopefully will find its way into all production H-Ds. They stereo also received a 200-watt upgrade with 5x7s sitting atop the saddlebag lids now with a sleek hidden antenna. The 8GB Nano remains. Fat black 1-1/4-inch bars with internal wiring also make their debut. The assist and slip clutch is new and helps smooth out downshifts. All CVO models now come with the Slipstream Collection including handgrips, floorboards, shifters, brake pedal and passenger foot peg. New color options include an Atomic Orange and Galaxy Grey with Edge graphics. The Anniversary edition returns for year 110 in the Diamond Dust and is limited to 900 of the total 3,150 worldwide units. Prices are slightly up from 2012 at $32,999 for Orange and $33,999 for the 110th Anniversary editions.

CVO Road King
For 2013 it’s the return of the CVO Road King with an all-new audio module. Previously the Road King was not equipped with a stereo from the factory. Team H-D cleverly integrated two 5-1/4-inch speakers in the front fairing lowers with 5x7 speakers in the saddlebag lids. A lot of time was spent in the wind tunnel to develop a new detachable windscreen. Rather than bolting on a sail to split the wind, engineers developed an adjustable vent that reduces buffeting by allowing air through depending on rider height and speed. A new detachable solo seat and fatter bars also are part of the package. Along with a low-profile console the Road King also receives the Slipstream controls. Paint options include the Burgundy Black, and Crushed Sapphire with a MSRP of$29,999. The Diamond Dust 110th Anniversary Edition is slightly higher at $30,999 and limited to 900 of the 3,620 worldwide units.

The Electra Glide remains the pinnacle of the CVO line. With a whopping MSRP of $37,599 and $38,599 for the Anniversary edition it stands to be the most expensive H-D every produced.
