Harley-Davidson 2010 CVO bikes announced - Fat Bob and Ultra Classic Electra Glide

1 of 2

Harley-Davidson’s Fat Bob is recognised as a bad boy custom as standard, thanks mainly to it twin spotlight front end and hard styling.

Taking this further is an abundance of polished and chromed parts (silver and black tint chrome) part of which include Fang-style replacement wheels, polished stainless foot shift levers etc.

Like the Softail Convertible, an 1802cc engine delivers big torque. For full details go see your nearest Harley-Davidson dealer. Colours range from Cryptic Black with flames, Satin Pewter and Blue Opal with flames. Prices start at: £20,030

As a top-spec tourer you’d think it nigh on impossible to ramp up the Ultra Classic Electra Glide past brilliance. But the CVO version does take it to another level – somewhere near Jupiter.

LED lights in the panniers, Roulette-style wheels, teardrop floating front brake discs, sat-nav, and chromed everything else are only part of the very large package. To haul all the extras and the weighty content of a chrome-plating bath is the 110cu-in (1802cc) top-end conversion, rubber mounted engine.

Sure is a beauty especially in Riptide Blue covering paint, with Burnt Amber and Scarlet Red Pearl being the other options. Prices start at: £26,750.
