The 2011 Custom Vehicle OperationsTM Road Glide® Ultra, a new super-premium touring motorcycle with a frame-mounted fairing, offers its rider and passenger exceptional style, comfort and performance. Trimmed in glistening chrome and spectacular paint, the limited-production CVO Road Glide Ultra also features exclusive audio, navigation and seating components. Powered by the Screamin' Eagle® Twin Cam 110™ V-Twin engine, the CVO Road Glide Ultra is one of the most capable, and beautiful, touring motorcycles on the road today.

Harley-Davidson® CVO models are super-premium motorcycles for customers who desire the exclusivity of intricate paint, custom accessories, and a high-performance powertrain not available on standard-production Harley-Davidson models. CVO motorcycles define the advance vision of Harley-Davidson styling, features and performance.

For the CVO Road Glide Ultra, the Harley-Davidson Touring chassis serves as its solid foundation. A single-spar, rigid backbone frame and two-piece swingarm contribute to this platform's long-haul durability and responsive maneuverability. Dunlop® Multi-Tread dual-compound tires enhance handling and extend rear-tire tread life. Air-adjustable rear shocks accommodate variable passenger and luggage loads. Chassis geometry and suspension are calibrated to deliver confident handling and comfort.

The CVO Road Glide Ultra features an aerodynamic, frame-mounted fairing that offers a lighter steering feel than a fork-mounted fairing, and incorporates dual headlamps and a cockpit-style instrument display. The CVO Road Glide Ultra is also equipped with ventilated fairing lowers. ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) and cruise control are standard equipment on the CVO Road Glide Ultra.
