2020 Harley-Davidson CVO Street Glide
Harley’s Street Glide has been a popular mainstay of the American icon’s Touring range since 2006. With hard bags as standard and plenty of creature comforts for the rider it has been a popular for those that like to tour solo.
The Street Glide has also often been the base of a higher end CVO offering and again for model year 2020 Harley-Davidson’s Custom Vehicle Operations have gone the whole hog on the FLHX to produce the FLHXSE.
All CVO models for 2020 receive new lean-angle sensitive traction control and ABS systems along with electronic engine braking controls and hill hold control. Tyre pressure monitoring is also integrated into the motorcycles.
A bluetooth headset designed to interface with the ‘Premium Boom’ infotainment system. A public mode allows the rider to automatically connect to other nearby riders using the same system. The headset also enables the Apple Car Play system to be controlled by voice prompts while riding.
The speaker system on the CVO Street Glide is of an even higher specification than the full dresser CVO Limited model. The FLHXSE sports a quartet of bi-amplified three-way speakers, each rated to 150 watts and each pair of speakers is powered by their own four-channel 300 watt amplifier which brings the total power of the system up to 600 watts of power.
Both the CVO Street Glide and the CVO Limited also score a new adaptive headlight system that Harley have dubbed ‘Daymaker’. It is similar to the system used on some KTM Adventure models whereby extra LED cornering lights are illuminated the further you lean the motorcycle.
All 2020 CVO models score the Milwaukee-Eight 117 powerplant displacing 1923 cc, the largest factory installed engine available from H-D that boasts 125 ft. lbs. (166 Nm) of torque.
The CVO Street Glide carries 22.7-litres of fuel, tips the scales at 377 kg dry, and rolls on a 130/60-19 front hoop and a 180/55-18 rear.
The 2020 CVO Street Glide will retail from $54,995 in Australia and $56,495 in New Zealand. The FLHXSE will be available in the three different colour schemes shown detailed in this article.
