2009 Harley-Davidson Electra Glide® CVO Ultra Classic
The new E-Glide CVO 2009 - an absolute disappointmentBy (I am an Owner) on Aug 13, 2009
I'm an Austrian and I'm since 2001 a driver of a E-Glide ultra Classic. All the time I hade no problems and it was fantastic. This Bike was really good. Now in 2009 I see the new CVO - E-Glide and it looks very promising. I bought the Bike in March 2009. Its an absolute disappointment. Very very ... bad workmanship, incorrect lacquer finish, loosens screw, broken shock absorbers, Navi update is 2005!!! for a mod. 2009 and so on... For example: I complaint the navi update and ask for a new one. The answer - its not possible because this one is workink !! this answer is not from the local dealer - it is the answer of "Harley Davidson Europe"!!! I am simply disappointed - absolute disappointed
a good advice for all: Does not buy this model, the old one is much better and cheaper ! This is a wrong investment!
Great riding bikeBy (I am an Owner) on May 16, 2009
I really like the '09 frame changes. The ride feels tighter and corners great, especially in the twisties. So far I ridden it about 5k miles and don't have any 5th gear (or any other gear) transmission noise complaints. The standard mufflers were not bad, but changed to SE slip-on's for a slightly ... louder rumble, plus added a stage I air cleaner. With the 96ci engine there is plenty of power.
