2015 Harley-Davidson CVO Street GlideHarley-Davidson has updated its CVO Street Glide, the 2015 model highlighted by the Screamin’ Eagle Twin-Cooled Twin Cam 110 engine and the premium Boom! Stage II Audio System.
All updates were based on customer feedback, as Harley follows the same philosophy used to design its 2014 Project Rushmore models.This is the first time a Street Glide ever arrived with the Screamin’ Eagle Twin-Cooled Twin Cam 110, which produces a 115 ft/lbs of torque (2011 and earlier CVO Street Glides were offered with the Screamin’ Eagle Twin Cam 110, but not the Twin-Cooled design). Combined with Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection and a 6-Speed Cruise Drive transmission, the 110 helps the 2015 Street Glide achieve an average of 41 mpg.Harley added a side-fill fuel tank, which features a new “slammed” console with an illuminated CVO logo.Other custom features include new five-spoke polished chrome Aggressor custom wheels, extended saddlebags, Airflow Collection accessories from hand grips to muffler caps, a custom CVO seat, Daymaker LED headlamp and Wind Splitter windscreen.All other features arrive from the Project Rushmore models, including the iconic Batwing fairing with splitstream vent to reduce head buffeting.As for sound, the 2015 CVO Street Glide arrives with the Boom! Stage II Audio System with two 300-watt four-channel amplifiers and the Boom! Box 6.5GT infotainment system with touch screen and GPS.Four color options are available – Scorching Yellow/Starfire Black Flames, Starfire Black/Gold Dust Flames, Ultraviolet Blue/Molten Lava Flames and Hard Candy Mercury/Smoky Quartz Flames.
