2010 Harley-Davidson CVO Street Glide

FLHXSE CVO Review

Fronted by the familiar batwing fairing and girded by the newly redesigned FL chassis, the stylishly slammed 2010 Harley-Davidson CVO Street Glide boasts all the muscular agility of an NBA power forward and flashes more chrome than Dennis Rodman.

While the single-spar, rigid backbone frame and new swingarm originally hit the pavement in 2009, this year’s CVO Street Glide rendering of the hot-rod bagger is a completely re-imagined beast. Rolling on a pair of gorgeous 18-inch black powdercoat and chrome Agitator wheels and featuring gold leaf graphics and delicate pinstriped flames, the curvaceous 2010 Street Glide CVO is not coy about its sex appeal.

The Street Glide’s Twin-Cam 110 makes a claimed 115 ft/lbs of torque at 3700 rpm, and with the bike weighing in at a claimed 848 pounds (wet), the extra muscle conspires with the brisk-handling chassis to wring the most out of every corner. The Road Glide’s successor is lithe and agile through corners, authoritatively punchy on the highway and stops with reassuring ease, courtesy of the smoothly engaging ABS brakes.
