The 2021 Harley-Davidson CVO Street Glide is here, and it has several updates. Returning is the Milwaukee-Eight 177 V-twin powerplant that cranks out a gruff 126 ft-lbs of torque at 3750 rpm, along with the RDRS Safety Enhancements to help tame the beast. There are quite a few new features, so let’s take a look.
The new CVO Street Glide gets a new Rockford Fosgate sound system. A new amp puts out 100 watts per channel to four Rockford Fosgate Stage 2 three-way speakers. You get 6.5-inch speakers in the fairing and 5” x 7” speakers in the saddlebags. Don’t worry about overpowering the speakers—each of them can handle 125 watts of power. If you want even more Harley-Davidson Audio Powered by Rockford Fosgate offers upgrades that top out at eight speakers driven by a pair of 400-watt amplifiers. As before, the Boom! Box GTS infotainment system sends the signal to the sound system.
The instrument faces get a new look.
The console light on the CVO Street Glide is now an LED.
The new colors are always eagerly anticipated, and there is no disappointment. There are three color and finish options on this year’s CVO Street Glide:
Sunset Orange & Sunset Black Fade with satin chrome finishes
Great White Pearl with gloss black and black onyx finishes
Bronze Armor with smoked satin finishes
No matter what color you choose, the 2021 Harley-Davidson CVO Street Glide has the same MSRP—$40,599.
This week Teejay chats to Tyler Poppe. Tyler works on the TV show Mayans MC–and yet he doesn’t ride an American V-Twin. Wassup with that?? Also, Arthur finds out from friend Mike Cardillo about his thoughts on the full-size version of the Kawasaki KLX 140R F trail bike.
