To The Dark Side - Serialised Edition with Blacked
Out Touring Comfort and Road Tech zumo Navigator
3rd February 2010
new 2010 Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) Ultra Classic
Electra Glide trades the shine of chrome for a fade
to black in its debut as the new, darker version of
this truly exceptional Harley-Davidson Touring motorcycle.
Each motorcycle is serialised from one to 999, and
displays a formidable array of blacked out components,
led by the serialised insert and the Gloss Black Rumble
Collection and low-smoked windshield, the new CVO
Ultra adds leading-edge technology with a handlebar-mounted
Road Tech zumo 660 GPS Navigator and an integrated
automatic lock system that now includes the ignition
The CVO Ultra is powered by a black and chrome Screamin’
Eagle Twin Cam 110 engine and a 6-speed Cruise Drive
transmission, which is the largest-displacement V-Twin
engine offered from the factory by Harley-Davidson.
Besides the black powertrain, this menacing touring
bike revels in all things dark with a Crimson Mist
Black / Dark Slate and Flame graphics base colour,
and approximately 185 other unique black parts, components
and accessories meticulously melded to form and function
by the CVO team.
Among the main attractions on the dark road to CVO
Ultra custom inspiration are the Contrast Chrome Roulette
wheels, the Rumble Collection featuring nine Gloss
Black accessories from mirrors to saddlebag latch
covers, black engine and saddlebag guards, and Diamond
Black gauge faces. All these deeply dark features
combine to make the Ultra into an inspired motorcycle
that could only come from Harley-Davidson CVO.
The CVO Ultra presents a lower profile up front with
a 6.5-inch smoked windshield and adds premium Touring
features like anti-lock braking system (ABS), Electronic
Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI), a six-gallon
