At $57,495 the CVO Limited commands quite a premium over the $41,495 sticker price of the Ultra Limited from the regular Harley Touring range that the model is based on. So what do you get for your extra 16-grand..?
The headline act is the 117-cube iteration of the Milwaukee-Eight engine that is reserved only for CVO machines. With 166 Nm of torque at 3500 rpm the 117, in Australian guise, boasts only modest gains over the 114 engine fitted to the regular Touring models, which Harley rate for 164 Nm at 3000 rpm. The CVO Limited claims 106 horsepower at 5450 rpm.
Both the CVO Limited and the Ultra Limited score Harley’s new suite of electronic rider safety aids for 2020. Lean-angle responsive ABS and traction control married to an electronic engine braking control system and hill hold control functions. Tyre pressure monitoring also comes standard on both models.
