Hearing the words ‘Harley Davidson’ always evokes images of big, burly cruisers in your mind, doesn’t it? Well, they don’t really get any bigger than this: the 2014 CVO Limited.
CVO is short for Custom Vehicle Operations – H-D’s highly exclusive custom programme. This basically refers to even more customisation options than what the company usually offers a buyer, while also bringing bigger, more powerful engines.
The 2014 CVO Limited is one of the biggest and heaviest models to come out of their portfolio. It also incorporates all the updates that Project Rushmore has to offer. At 428 kg, the CVO Limited is one heavy tourer, and, it needs a special engine just to make sure the performance you would need is there. A 110 cubic-inch, or 1,802cc Twin-Cam, High-Output V-twin engine with the company’s new Twin-Cooling system ensures maximum performance, with peak power, we estimate about 110 PS, together with 160 Nm of torque at 3,750 rpm bringing the party. The addition of Reflex-Linked Brembo brakes with ABS, Daymaker LED headlamps and fog lamps and the revised seating and infotainment systems all make for what could well be a benchmark in highway touring.
The CVO Limited is surely an eye-catching addition to the range and at $38,999 in the US (Rs 24.5 lakh approx), it will be an exclusive motorcycle indeed. We at Bike India sure hope it makes its way to India soon!
