Harley-Davidson launch new line of special edition CVO models for 2024

1 of 4

Harley-Davidson have added two new top-spec specials to their 2024 line-up, announcing a £23,495 CVO Pan America adventure bike, alongside a £38,995 CVO Road Glide ST bagger cruiser.

Standing for Custom Vehicle Operations, both CVO bikes build on existing models in the Milwaukee firm’s line-up, designed to give a more premium and exclusive experience for the rider.

Starting the Pan Am, the CVO special builds on the existing £17,295 Harley-Davidson Pan America 1250 Special V-twin adventurer that arrived back in 2021. As such, it retains the same 1252cc ‘Revolution Max’ engine producing a claimed 150bhp and 94lb.ft of torque.

It also gets the same semi-active front and rear suspension, touchscreen display, selectable riding modes, and adaptive front headlights.

Easily distinguished by its new striking paint, complete with number one decal on the petrol tank, the CVO also includes aluminium top and side cases, plus a quickshifter, aluminium skid plate, and more.

Bagger tricks

Moving on from adventure bikes, there’s also a new Harley-Davidson CVO Road Glide ST in town, said to be the fastest and most sophisticated bagger ever made by the brand. Whether you’d actually want to ride it fast is another question entirely.

To enhance the riding experience, there’s now a solo seat that’s six inches higher to put the rider in a more involved upright position. The 1977cc V-twin is also exclusive to this model, producing a claimed 126.1bhp and 145lbft of torque for additional sporty punch.

This figure makes it the most powerful factory-installed engine in a production Harley-Davidson motorcycle, with the Screamin’ Eagle graphic found on the bodywork inspired by the MotoAmerica Mission King of the Baggers race series.

Despite its sporting claims it still weighs a whopping 363kg dry – a figure that’s actually come down from the standard ‘Glide. This is thanks to a use of titanium and forged carbon fibre across various components, with the latter found on the front fender, seat cowl, tank console, and more.

You’ll also find fully adjustable front and rear Showa suspension, including chunky 47mm upside down forks. Braking power is provided by Brembo, with five standard riding modes (including Track and Track Plus) and additional options for customisation.

This is all controlled via a colour touchscreen unit, alongside a 500-watt amplifier and 165mm fairing speakers so everyone can hear you coming.

Back again

Further to these new additions, Harley have also confirmed that the £38,295 CVO Street Glide and £38,795 CVO Road Glide introduced in 2023 will remain in the line-up for 2024. Both feature the Milwaukee-Eight VVT 121 (1977cc) engine.
