2021 Harley-Davidson CVO Models Get Rockford Fosgate Speakers
On top of the Softail and Touring lineups, Harley-Davidson has also given its Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) models some equipment and styling updates.
For 2021, two of its CVO models, namely the CVO Road Glide and CVO Street Glide, gain a Rockford Fosgate Stage II audio system with tri-axial speakers designed to deliver ultra-clear highs, super-clean midrange, and ground-thumping bass. Rated to handle up to 150 watts of power each, these speakers feature a durable injection moulded woofer, a separate bridge-mounted midrange and tweeters.
H-D will also offer the Rockford Fosgate audio system as accessories on 2014 and later Touring motorcycles equipped with a Boom! Box infotainment unit.
In terms of styling, the CVO Road Glide and CVO Street Glide are offered with three options (two-tone, dark and bright finishes with a fade paint or dark monochrome paint), while the CVO Limited and the CVO Tri Glide get two paint options (two-tone or dark monochrome).
Powered by the Milwaukee-Eight 117 V-Twin engine, which is the most powerful engine offered on a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, each of the CVO models also get the RDRS Safety Enhancements as standard. Elements of RDRS Safety Enhancements include Cornering Enhanced Electronic Linked Braking, Cornering Enhanced Antilock Braking System, Cornering Enhanced Traction Control System, Drag-Torque Slip Control System, Vehicle Hold Control, and Tire Pressure Monitoring System.
Harley-Davidson® Custom Vehicle Operations represent the pinnacle of Harley-Davidson style and design. Created for the most discerning customers, the 2021 CVO models offer show-stopping finishes, advanced technology, exclusive components and attention to detail that borders on obsessive, engineered and assembled to factory-quality standards and backed by the Harley-Davidson® limited warranty. The Milwaukee-Eight® 117 powertrain – the most displacement and power offered in a motorcycle straight from the Harley-Davidson factory – is exclusive to four limited-production, premium CVO models.
CVO models for 2021 include the CVO Limited, the CVO Street Glide®, the CVO Road Glide® and the CVO Tri Glide®. Each 2021 CVO model features new paint and graphics. The CVO Road Glide and CVO Street Glide models introduce high-fidelity Stage II Harley-Davidson® Audio powered by Rockford Fosgate.
CVO models feature exclusive paint colors and designs executed to a level of intricate quality that is unmatched in the motorcycle and automotive categories. CVO models are also used to introduce new finish treatments that are used as alternatives to traditional chrome.
To appeal to a broad range of customer tastes, CVO models are created with distinctly different styling treatments marrying curated color palettes and finishes. Three styling choices are offered for the CVO Street Glide and CVO Road Glide models, from a look with a bright powertrain and chrome details with two-tone paint, to a combination of dark and bright finishes with a fade paint treatment, to a very dark look with a monochrome paint. Two styling choices are offered for the CVO Limited and the CVO Tri Glide models – a bright powertrain and chrome detail with two-tone paint or a dark look with a monochrome paint.
