New CVO Motorcycle Technology
Reflex Defensive Rider Systems (RDRS): Standard equipment on all 2020 CVO models, RDRS is a new collection of technology designed to match motorcycle performance to available traction during acceleration, deceleration and braking, utilising the latest chassis control, electronic brake control and powertrain technology.
Daymaker Adaptive LED Headlamp: Standard on the CVO Limited and CVO Street Glide models, Daymaker Adaptive is the most-advanced headlamp system ever developed for a Harley-Davidson motorcycle. Patented sensors and electronics integrated into the headlamp control 12 additional LED lights that activate based on the lean of the bike to project light into corners, illuminating areas of the road that are unlit by traditional LED headlamps. The adaptive light feature works in both the high and low-beam functions. The projector-style LED beam pattern is focused on the road ahead and is engineered to reduce wasted light that can impact oncoming traffic. A signature LED light outer ring operates as a position lamp.
Wireless Headset: All 2020 CVO models are shipped a single Boom! Audio 30K Bluetooth Helmet Headset designed for cordless interface with the Boom! Box GTS infotainment system. This new headset features the latest wireless communication technology — Mesh Intercom Network. The protocol automatically connects to a near limitless number of riders while in public mode; no more lost group connections when someone goes out of range. The headset can connect with up to 16 riders in private mode up to 5 miles (8.05 km), and enables the same functions as a wired headset (CB, phone, navigation prompts, radio and audio, with voice commands) and fulfills the Apple Car Play microphone requirement for the Boom! Box GTS. A Quick Charge feature can provide up to five hours of additional talk time with a 20-minute charge.
Exclusive Milwaukee-Eight 117 Power
The largest-displacement factory-installed engine available from Harley-Davidson, the Milwaukee-Eight 117 (117 CID; 1923 cc) is rated at 125 ft. lbs. of torque.
A 10.2:1 compression ratio (compared to 10.0:1 for Milwaukee-Eight 114
engine) helps increase torque.
A high-performance camshaft is matched to displacement and air flow.
A high-performance intake flows more air into the engine.
Retains all Milwaukee-Eight engine features:
Dual counter-balancers cancel primary vibration at idle for improved rider and
Four valve cylinder heads (two exhaust and two intake valves per head, eight
total); Improved airflow through the engine contributes to power output.
Dual spark plugs for more complete combustion of the air/fuel charge and
maximised power and efficiency.
Single camshaft reduces mechanical noise so a richer exhaust tone can
Advanced cylinder head design, dual knock sensors, and precision cooling allow a higher compression ratio for increased torque output and strong acceleration.
V-Twin design with 45-degree cylinder angle maintains classic Harley-Davidson look-sound-feel.
