The American factory has broken cover with limited edition versions of its fully-loaded Street Glide and Road Glide. And the big news is that they’ll be powered by a swanky new V-twin engine with Variable Valve Timing.
It’s going to be a big year for Harley-Davidson. The iconic American firm is celebrating 120 years of production in 2023 – and to celebrate, it’s created a load of funky special versions of some of its best-known models.
Speaking about the bikes, H-D CEO, Chairman and President Jochen Zeitz said: “With the introduction of the all-new CVO Street Glide and CVO Road Glide, we’ve completely reimagined two of Harley-Davidson’s most iconic motorcycles and redefined the boundaries of CVO in the process.

“By rethinking these two models from the ground up, we are ushering in a new era of innovation, design, engineering and technology, while expanding the definition of Harley-Davidson CVO and taking the Grand American Touring experience to another level. The new CVO Street Glide and CVO Road Glide break the mould and reset the bar for the pinnacle Harley-Davidson riding experience.”
It’s not released all the details just yet, and we’ll have to wait until June for its big bashes in both Milwaukee and Budapest for the full lowdown, but we have managed to find out a few key things about the whopping Harleys, including that both bikes will get a new Milwaukee-Eight VVT 121 engine, all-new suspension, and a top-spec infotainment system. Not bad, right? And gleaning more information from the teaser video and snaps, it’s fair to assume the new bikes will come kitted out with upside-down forks, radially-mounted Brembo front calipers, plenty of LED lighting, and a large TFT display.
Although we might not have all the details, it is fair to assume that the new Street Glide and Road Glide will be pretty special bits of kit. That’s because they’re being looked after by H-D’s CVO department, which has built up an enviable reputation for building trick bikes for over 20 years. As you’d expect, they usually have a price tag to match – and so it’d be fair to assume these two will cost in excess of £30,000 (particularly when you consider the £50,395 CVO Road Glide Limited released back in January to celebrate the firm’s 120th birthday).
