Harley-Davidson celebrates 25 years continuing its Custom Vehicle Operations with the introduction of the all-new CVO Pan America and CVO Road Glide ST.
We can’t say we ever thought we’d see the Pan America included in the CVO model offerings by Harley-Davidson, it’s refreshing to see an ADV bike included.
CVO Pan America
Since the Pan-America has entered the arena of ADV bikes it’s been received very well. Now Harley-Davidson CVO department has taken on a new challenge with the CVO Pan-America.
The new CVO Pan-America includes CVO hard luggage panniers and 38-litre water-tight top case designed in collaboration with SW-MOTECH, and Adaptive Ride Height. It does seem as though the Pan-America Special no longer includes the Adaptive Ride Height, indicating that the CVO model is now the only Pan-America offering the technology standard. The Pan-America will be rolling on an anodized aluminium-laced wheelset as opposed to the standard aluminum cast wheelset.
New CVO Road Glide ST
This performance bagger dons a plethora of high-spec performance components and includes a solo seat and a six-inch riser paired with a moto handlebar. The Milwaukee-Eight 121 V-Twin is exclusive to the CVO Road Glide ST model and offers the most horsepower and torque ever offered from a factory-installed engine. Producing 127 horsepower (94kW) and 145 lb. ft. (193 Nm) of torque and paired with a lower final drive ratio, selected to further enhance performance.
The model weighs 363 kg (800 lbs.) and features fully adjustable front and rear suspension with SHOWA rear shock absorbers with remote reservoirs and inverted 47mm SHOWA 1×1 forks. Premium Brembo brake components and selectable ride modes including- Road, Sport, Track, Track Plus, Rain, along with multiple custom modes.
