2013 Harley-Davidson CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide

Harley-Davidson returns in 2013 with some slight revisions on its top Custom Vehicle Operations tourer – the CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide.

The most expensive motorcycle in Harley-Davidson’s CVO lineup, the CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide arrives in 2013 with four new paint schemes, which includes the 110th Anniversary Edition, and a host of new custom accessories.

The 2013 CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide, which carries a MSRP of $37,599 for the base models, and $38,599 for the 110th Anniversary Edition, will be limited to 3,900 units, each one assembled in Harley’s facilities in York, Pa.

Each model rolls on the single-spar, rigid backbone touring frame and arrives with the most powerful production Harley-Davidson engine available – the 110 Screamin’ Eagle that produces 118 ft. lbs. of torque at 3750 rpm.

The new features for 2013 include the chrome and rubber Slipstream Collection heated hand grips, rider and passenger footboard inserts, brake lever pad, shifter and highway pegs and windshield trim. The suspended, dual-control heated, two-up seat and adjustable passenger backrest have a new perforated leather insert, and a new chrome billet-style extended reach heel shifter creates more boot room on the left-side footboard.

The CVO Ultra is also equipped with a high-performance Harman/Kardon Advanced Audio system that includes BOOM! Audio High Performance BOOM! Bagger speakers.

As for the 110th Anniversary Edition, this exclusive design features solid bronze fuel tank badges, plated in black nickel and then distressed to highlight the bronze. A bright gold-tone Bar and Shield cloisonné is inserted in the main body of the “single wing” badge while each motorcycle will carry other model-specific anniversary badging, trim and a serialization badge, Harley says.
