The headset has a range of up to one mile and can communicate with up to eight other compatible headsets. The CVO Limited model is delivered with two wireless headsets; the CVO Street Glide and CVO Road Glide models include a single headset.
  • The Tire Pressure Monitoring System displays current front and rear tire pressure on the  Boom! Box screen and issues an alert when tire pressure is low to warn the rider that tire pressure should be checked, or if a tire is losing pressure due to puncture.
  • The Milwaukee-Eight 117, which is exclusive to CVO models and features 117 cubic inch displacement, a high-performance camshaft and intake, an elevated 10.2:1 compression ratio and produces up to 125 ft. lbs. of torque. On 2019 models the Milwaukee-Eight 117 for CVO is identified by a bright Blaze Red band on the engine rocker boxes.

For 2019, Harley-Davidson has also updated the styling choices of the three CVO models.

Each 2019 CVO is offered in three different styling treatments, from a look with a bright powertrain and chrome details with two-tone paint, to a combination of dark and bright finishes, to a very dark look with a monochrome or fade paint.

The CVO models are also used to introduce new finish treatments as an alternative to traditional chrome:

  • CVO Fade Paint is an extremely complex treatment. Developed exclusively for Harley-Davidson, the fade effect goes from a lighter to darker shade as it moves higher on the motorcycle and is very carefully aligned on each piece of bodywork to create the illusion that the motorcycle is being lighted from below. This paint treatment relies on expertly programmed robotic application of multiple layers of paint.
  • Black Onyx is a finish featured on the exhaust of the darkest styling treatments offered for CVO Road Glide and CVO Street Glide models. This “physical vapor deposition” finish is applied over chrome. The finish was originally developed for mil-spec and jewelry applications. It’s very durable but also so thin that in bright light the underlying chrome is visible through the Black Onyx finish.
