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.

KTM RC 390 and Gordon McCall of Quail Motorcycle Gathering
byMotos and Friends by Ultimate Motorcycle
Hello and welcome once again to Ultimate Motorcycling’s weekly Podcast—Motos and Friends.
This week’s Podcast is brought to you by Yamaha motorcycles. Discover how the YZF-R7 provides the perfect balance of rider comfort and true supersport performance by checking it out at YamahaMotorsports.com, or see it for yourself at your local dealer.
This week features Senior Editor Nic de Sena’s impressions of the new KTM RC 390. The entry-level KTM has always been an impressive motorcycle that has sold extremely well, however the factory has now taken the bike to another level, with top-spec features that are typically found on flagship machines. Clearly KTM has realized that even smaller engined machines should have high spec suspension, brakes and electronics packages. Nic tells us how well the new RC 390 is equipped, and what he thought of riding the smaller displacement rocket.
In the second segment I chat with automotive and motorcycle industry icon, Gordon McCall. Gordon is the Director of Motorsports at the Quail Lodge & Golf Club in Carmel Valley, California.
This weekend of Saturday May 14th sees the annual Quail Motorcycle Gathering re-start after its Covid-forced hiatus, and having attended every one of the previous Motorcycle Gatherings, personally I’m very happy that the event is back on the schedule. Gordon chats about the event and a little of what’s happening this year. It’s a great event and if you feel like a trip to the gorgeous Quail Lodge in Carmel Valley, you’ll get to meet Gordon, Roland Sands, and of course a large number of stunning motorcycles too.
From all of us at Ultimate Motorcycling, we hope you enjoy this episode!
