The Road Glide was eclipsed from the Harley France catalog in the middle of the last decade. His career has since continued in the USA. But to return to France, it had to be done through the front door and with prestige. The first attempt was made in 2009 via the CVO department for the 10 years of this customization unit; rebel in 2011 with this new superb CVO signature.
Her 1450, she forgot without a tear. This imposing faired traveler looks down at other tourers from the top of her 1800cc 110 Screamin Eagle. A cathedral of chrome and steel whose breath is not too much to move this vessel. Extensively equipped on the road with a large top case, hard cases and quality audio equipment (the latest sophisticated Harman / Kardon audio unit, with BOOM Bagger speakers and amplifier with a power of 100 watts per channel. The audio system Also incorporates an 8GB iPod nano iPod with docking station and support housed in the right bag), the Road Glide is very distinct from the Electra by its fork crown encrusted with a double lens. Wind tunnel tests were carried out to develop a new mounting angle for the 16-inch (406 mm) Road Glide windshield and discreet air deflectors that reduce jarring in the riding area. To lighten the steering, Boeing’s large appendage that protects you from the wind is mounted on the frame. Imposing and refined, this Harley is more elegant than flashy. We would almost remove a brake disc to get a better view of the 19-inch Agitator wheel.
Like any CVO, the machine is teeming with small elements that we take pleasure in detailing with the eye, such as the Rumble collection; it features decorative chrome stripes integrated into the rubber surfaces of the driver’s and passenger’s footrests, running boards, brake pedal, running boards, gear pedal, saddlebag covers, and heated grips. Once on board, we will let ourselves be lulled more by the tremors of the big twin than by the sound system. Then, there is more than to trace the road, with the assistance of a few comfort elements: Road Tech zumo 660 navigation system, double suspended saddle with double heating control, adjustable backrests and leather inserts. All under the shelter of a fairing topped with a new seven-inch (178mm) exhaust air baffle. Push-button remote control activates electric locks for luggage rack, saddlebags and Tour-Pak ignition.
