Four Harley-Davidson CVOs for 2022

When you show up on a CVO, you know you’ve arrived and so do all the peons on lesser machines. “Exclusive and hand-crafted paint and designs are executed to a level of intricate quality that is unmatched in the motorcycle and automotive categories,” says H-D, to “represent the pinnacle of style and design.” For 2022, a new CVO Road Glide Limited replaces the CVO Limited, with CVO Street and CVO Road Glides returning, along with the CVO Tri Glide. 

Each CVO gets a burly Milwaukee-Eight 117 powertrain, H-D’s biggest and most powerful factory-installed motor. 

Other standard features include premium Harley-Davidson Audio-powered-by-Rockford Fosgate sound systems, a Boom! Audio 30K Bluetooth Helmet Headset and the latest comms: “Mesh Intercom Network protocol automatically connects to a near limitless number of riders while in public mode – no more lost group connections when someone goes out of range – and can connect with up to 16 riders in private mode at a range of up to 5 miles (8.05km).” This headset also meets Apple CarPlay’s microphone requirement for the Boom! Box GTS.

Don’t forget the entire Cornering Rider Safety Enhancements package, which includes lean-sensitive ABS and traction control systems. 

The paint’s the thing, though: Each 2022 CVO features all-new exclusive paint options by H-D’s long-running partner Gunslinger, that really does make each CVO a rolling work of art.

If you have to ask how much, you’re shopping in the wrong department. Prices range from $41,899 for the CVO Street Glide to $49,999 for the CVO Tri Glide. Below are more details than you can shake a pushrod at.

HARLEY-DAVIDSON CVO MOTORCYCLES REPRESENT PINNACLE OF STYLE AND DESIGN

MILWAUKEE, WI (January 26, 2022) – Advanced technology, exclusive components and obsessive attention to detail distinguish four new 2022 motorcycle models from Harley-Davidson Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO). Limited-production, super-premium CVO motorcycles represent the pinnacle of forward-looking style, design and craftsmanship from Harley-Davidson, the world’s most-desirable motorcycle brand.

CVO models for 2022 include the CVO Road Glide Limited, the CVO Street Glide, the CVO Road Glide and the CVO Tri Glide. Each model offers exclusive paint colors and designs executed to a level of intricate quality and hand-crafted detail that is unmatched in the motorcycle and automotive categories.

“Gunslinger is our partner in custom paint that’s been that’s been adding incredible artisanal techniques to our CVO arsenal and family for a long time now, and they’re inspiring us to push the limits, so we try to do the same thing with them,” said Brad Richards, Harley-Davidson Vice President of Design.

“When most manufacturers are at the limits of a robot, Gunslinger can go in there with an artist who has the ability to brush by hand and deliver the sharpest pinstripe possible. That hand applied technique allows for very intricate two-tones, three-tones, airbrush drop shadows, and really transcends the ‘expected’ by delivering a truly custom look.”

Each CVO model is also equipped with Milwaukee-Eight 117 engine, plus the complete technology suite of Cornering Rider Safety Enhancements and the advanced Boom! Box GTS infotainment system equipped with high-performance Harley-Davidson Audio powered by Rockford Fosgate.
