The CVO™ Street Glide® and the CVO™ Road Glide® are well-equipped motorcycles in the upper ranks of Harley-Davidson®'s Grand American Touring line. While these popular two-seaters have the legendary design traits that this iconic brand is recognized for, they are packed with modern features. Their combinations of technologies, practical features and exceptional engineering make them both perfect for everyday driving as well as road trips. You can count on the Harley-Davidson® of New Port Richey team to help you discover the important differences between the 2023 CVO™ Street Glide® and the 2023 CVO™ Road Glide®.
The 2023 Harley-Davidson® CVO™ Street Glide® is precisely sculpted for optimized aerodynamics, including a split stream vent at the top of the batwing fairing. Its Milwaukee-Eight® 121 engine has variable valve timing, upgraded intake tracts and liquid-cooled cylinder heads. There are five riding modes, including two customizable modes. The high-flow exhaust system is designed with 4.5-inch mufflers, and the SHOWA forks and shocks support rider comfort. For optimized control, the 2023 CVO™ Street Glide® features Brembo brakes. The CVO™ Street Glide®’s performance is also elevated by a tire pressure monitoring system, cornering traction control and cornering ABS. In addition, the unique placement of the wide handlebars and the well-shaped seat support optimal ergonomics.
The 2023 Harley-Davidson® CVO™ Road Glide® also has an aerodynamic design with a shark-nose fairing and computational fluid dynamics. Like the CVO™ Street Glide®, the CVO™ Road Glide® has five riding modes as well as cornering ABS, cornering traction control and a tire pressure monitoring system. This model also has the same engine, suspension and braking equipment as the CVO™ Street Glide® has.
The batwing fairing on the CVO™ Street Glide® has a modern look with side accent LED lights and strongly angled and tinted wind deflector. The LED headlight is mostly framed by a thick bar of light. On the teardrop fuel tank, the block letter logo is accompanied by a pinstripe accent or an arrow-like bolt based on the paint color selected. The two paint colors available are Whiskey Neat and Dark Platinum. The seat is sculpted for optimal comfort and features contrasting piping. The combo laced wheel on the front pairs with a slender fender, and the rear wheel is flanked by the dark metallic exhaust pipes and the angled, two-tone saddlebags.
In comparison, the 2023 CVO™ Road Glide® is styled with a wide, aggressive LED headlight that wraps around the sides of the fairing. The wheel design is comparable to the CVO™ Street Glide®’s design, and the front fender is slightly larger. The fender, hard-cased saddlebags and fuel tank have a pinstripe accent with Dark Platinum as the body color. These features are designed with an ombre color scheme with Whiskey Neat. This model also stands apart with its taller handlebars and boxier seat design.
You will have everything that you need for great rides regardless of your model selection because the CVO™ Street Glide® and CVO™ Road Glide® have several of the same features. Both models feature a 12.3-inch display screen flanked by premium speakers for the sound system. Through this screen, you can conveniently access the navigation system, the Skyline OS for the infotainment system, the digital instrument gauges, multi-language voice recognition, a USB port and other technologies. Communication between the rider and passenger is supported by wireless headsets and an intercom system. These models also both have two additional speakers mounted in the saddlebags. The 2023 CVO™ Road Glide® also comes with a Rockford Fosgate Stage II sound system and heated hand grips.
