2010 H-D CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide | Review

FLHTCUSE5 CVO Review

The enduring Harley-Davidson Ultra Classic Electra Glide asks the question, “What do you get the bike that has everything?” Already stuffed to the topcase with amenities, the 2010 Harley-Davidson CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide finds room for a few more, like the wraparound LED Brake/taillight bar and the lambent LED pods mounted in the saddlebags.

Focusing on rider and passenger comfort, the CVO Ultra Classic has perhaps the most comfortable seat on the market and the lush bagger’s ergonomics make long days in that saddle a stress-free affair.

At a titanic 924 pounds in running order, you might not expect the CVO Ultra Classic to handle as well as it does, but benefiting from the upgraded FL chassis, it proves to be a nimble giant-a giant with big shoes, thanks to the muscular Brembo ABS brakes.
