Dark H-D CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide

Serialized edition gets blacked out, adds GPS

By Motorcycle.Com Staff, Jan. 25, 2010
Harley-Davidson introduced a serialized edition blacked-out CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide.

The 2010 CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide was already considered a limited production model with only 3,500 units to be built. The new, darker, version of the CVO Ultra is even more exclusive, with Harley-Davidson building only 999 units, each with a uniquely numbered CB pod insert.

The dark CVO Ultra swaps out much of the chrome for blacked-out components, and the same flame graphics, but with a new color combination Harley-Davidson calls Crimson Mist Black / Dark Slate.

Harley-Davidson introduced a new black version of the CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide.
Harley-Davidson will build only 999 units of the dark CVO Ultra, each uniquely numbered.
The dark version costs $500 more than the regular CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide, but comes with an $750 GPS device.

Harley-Davidson did more than just swap a color palette. The serialized version gets a lower, 6.5-inch smoked windscreen, a handlebar-mounted Road Tech zumo 660 GPS system, and an integrated automatic lock system including the ignition knob. Regular CVO Ultra amenities such as anti-lock brakes, audio system and LED saddlebag lights, remain.

The dark CVO Ultra is powered by a black and chrome 1,803cc engine paired to a matching six-speed Cruise drive transmission with a helical-cut fifth gear. Harley-Davidson also equipped the bike with the Gloss Black Rumble Collection, featuring rider and passenger footboard inserts and pans, shifter pegs, brake pedal, highway pegs, mirrors, windshield trim, saddlebag latch covers and heated hand grips.

The serialized edition 2010 CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide has been priced at $36,499, making it the Harley-Davidson’s most expensive 2010 model. The regular CVO Ultra is priced at $500 less, but the zumo 660 GPS Navigator retails for about $800 with a mounting kit, more than making up the difference.
