2012 Harley-Davidson FLHTCUSE7 CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide Review

Top of the line Grand American Touring as only Harley-Davidson® does it. From power to premium features—when you want it all, this bike can bring it.

The CVO™ Ultra Classic® Electra Glide® takes luxury to new heights with a suspended, dual-control heated seat, adjustable passenger backrest with lumbar support; plush lined Tour- Pak® luggage, saddlebags and more.

The CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide is built on the innovative Harley-Davidson Touring chassis, based on a single-spar, rigid backbone frame and swingarm developed to withstand the demands of long-haul touring riders.

2012 CVO™ Ultra Classic® Electra Glide®: This ultimate long-haul touring motorcycle is ready to take on the most-challenging touring assignments with style. New features for 2012 start with BOOM!™ Audio High Performance BOOM! Bagger™ Speakers plus new BOOM!™ Audio Bass Booster Ports in the Tour-Pak bottom liner. These are all powered by an amplifier tuned to match the dynamics of the speakers and the motorcycle environment. An 8GB Apple iPod nano and iPod interface completes the audio package. The CVO Ultra rolls on new Mirror Chrome Chisel Custom wheels with matching brake rotors, and the King Tour-Pak features new chrome LED brake/tail lamps. The suspended, dual-control heated, two-up seat and adjustable passenger backrest have an H-D Bar & Shield monogram and pebbled pattern texture. Electronic Throttle Control (ETC), cruise control, and ABS are standard equipment. Three new color combinations are available.


All the quality. All the legacy of the Harley-Davidson® name. Plus custom touches and performance that distinguish you from every other bike on the road. Sure there's a little vanity. Premium custom paint. Big, tricked-out wheels. The perfect storm of engineering and style you'll only find on a custom machine. And you'll spoil yourself with the accessories—from comfort to electronics to chrome. But the real signature of a Harley-Davidson® Custom Vehicle Operations™ motorcycle is the explosive power and sleek detailing of the huge Screamin' Eagle® engine. It's custom-built, not just for anyone, but for true connoisseurs of the road.

These injection-molded hard bags have room for 2.26 cu. ft. volume of long-haul luxuries and a perfect surface for showing off some premium paint. Even better, these saddlebags open from the top, so your gear won't end up spilled all over the highway. They keep your fancy unmentionables dry, and the chrome latches won't corrode in bad weather. And when you're off the road, one common key starts the bike and gives you access to your saddlebags, keeping your pockets as uncluttered as your bike's refined design.
The premium Tour-Pak® adds to the luxury look and gives you even more space to pack stuff for the road. And we add another layer to the mix with exclusive Custom Vehicle Operations™ saddlebag and Tour-Pak® carry-out liners. Dual-direction zippers for more access. Side pockets for your quick-reach items like cell phones, keys and wallet. Rubber bottoms that keep the insides dry and clean, and d-rings let you clip on attachments and shoulder straps for easy transport.

The premium custom look goes the distance on the CVO™ Ultra Classic® Electra Glide® model with the chrome dual exhaust. Featuring 4-inch touring mufflers, chrome billet end caps with black spears and chrome touring exhaust shields. Relish in the rumble and performance of these high-end pipes.

Harley-Davidson® fuel tanks are finished by hand—that's what makes them stand out from the competition. Their seamless design and unmatched style are unique among all motorcycles on the road. The tanks are one of the first and last things people notice when they lay their eyes on a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle—so we make it worth their time. And a classically styled, bold six-gallon fuel tank doesn't just give you a bigger canvas for premium or custom paint; it holds six gallons of go so you can eat up a lot more road between pit stops.

The back end of the CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide model demonstrates once again the premium style and innovative engineering you'll find with the Custom Vehicle Operations at Harley-Davidson. The taillight features an integrated chrome wraparound brake light for a clean look. And with its wraparound coverage, you get additional style, increased visual footprint at night and long-lasting LEDs that just keep burning on.

Aggressive yet balanced, every element of the CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide model is painstakingly designed to deliver the most luxurious riding experience—and that includes the chrome Chisel wheels with matching open rotors. With a 17-inch front wheel and a 16-inch in back, this Ultra boasts smooth, nimble handling no matter where your journey takes you.

Individually crafted and hand finished, high-impact paint and graphics come standard on all Harley-Davidson® Custom Vehicle Operations™ motorcycles. The CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide's exclusive color schemes are adorned with concentrated glass and mirrors for a light-catching candy appearance, while the Big City Lights graphic makes for a dramatic highlight. Skimping? The word's simply not in our vocabulary.

The knowledge of what makes an engine truly move a rider runs deep at The Motor Company, and it was put to good use when we created the Screamin' Eagle® Twin Cam 110™ engine. We sweated bullets perfecting every cubic inch, pushing design and technology forward.
And we did it all without compromising one bit of Harley-Davidson's unique styling. Evolved, yet carrying on the legacy of the Flathead, Knucklehead, Panhead, Shovelhead, Evolution® and Twin Cam 88® engines that came before. The performance and durability are a direct result of the untold miles logged on the V-Twin since 1909, and the proud heritage that comes from a century's worth of commitment to life on two wheels.

Fire up the Twin Cam 110™ engine and feel the low-end torque unleashed. The colossal 110 cubic inches provide seemingly endless torque with adrenaline-pumping pull through all six gears. Boasting the largest-displacement V-Twin engine by Harley-Davidson, the Twin Cam 110™ produces 118 ft. lbs. of torque at 3750 rpm. Six speeds. A strong driveline and strong internal parts. Low routine maintenance. And a low cruising rpm couldn't feel better.

Feast your eyes on the Twin Cam 110™ engine and there's no mistaking its roots. This is authentic Harley-Davidson® style through and through with an attention to detail you won't find from any other motorcycle company. Granite heads and cylinders feature machined cooling fin tips and are highlighted by chrome rocker covers. Exclusive to Custom Vehicle Operations™, the granite powertrain and 110 badging are unapologetically distinguished. It's a jewel machined out of metal. Pure. Dripping with power.
From the classic edge of the cooling fins to the clean lines of cases and covers—the Twin Cam 110™ engine makes an ironclad statement to holding on to what's right and staying true to what satisfies the rider.

You want a ride that rumbles—not begs for mercy—when you lean on it a little. The Six-Speed Cruise Drive® transmission provides smooth, quiet shifting and reduces engine speed on the highway, so you get a better match between engine turnover and road speed. And the Isolated Drive System makes acceleration flow in a smooth, steady stream from your wrist right down to the pavement. It's a rare ride when a bike responds like this, and a low growl goes a long way when you're opening up the road ahead.

Performance gets the custom treatment on Custom Vehicle Operations™ motorcycles. The addition of a high-performance clutch with hydraulic actuation helps make sure you're getting a smooth, confident feel with just the right amount of effort and a hands-off reliability that's only fitting. And you'll love the confidence and control it lends when harnessing those 110 cubic inches of Screamin' Eagle® power.

Everything about the Screamin' Eagle® Twin Cam 110™ Engine is a testament to the premium styling and performance you get with a limited Custom Vehicle Operations™ motorcycle. Right smack between the engine jugs rests the high-flow 'ventilator' intake with high-flow filter element, back plate, diamond-cut, charcoal Screamin' Eagle badge and protective rain sock. Your bike will breathe easy while the increased air flow boosts the raw power. Unique and exclusive. That is what Custom Vehicle Operations is all about.

When it comes to the CVO™ Ultra Classic® Electra Glide® model with ABS, 'stopping power' has a double meaning. The components of our ABS are tastefully hidden within the wheel hub, so you'll still turn heads with a clean, streamlined design. More importantly, though, you get certainty in the saddle knowing your bike's going to behave when you need it.

Harley-Davidson® touring means maximum comfort in all conditions and the capacity to add whatever enhances and personalizes your ride. The high output charging system provides an electrical capacity robust enough for your add-ons: heated vests, lights to showcase the engine, you name it. So if you're hell-bent on two-wheeling it, we make sure you've got the juice to do it your way.

Whether you need a quick charge for your cell phone or dinner from a hotplate on a lonely stretch of road, knowing you've got 15 amps of power to get through the day or night goes a long way. And don't worry about pesky rain spoiling your power supply—the spring-loaded cap keeps the receptor dry and free of road muck.

If you're ready to take Touring to the next level, the cruise control feature will help you settle in for the long haul. Get the comfort of the cruise without the cables cluttering up your handlebar. Our electronic throttle control technology makes it possible to have the best of both worlds.

Harley-Davidson leverages the latest in technology without compromising style and function. That means we hide electronics. The whole wiring harness is skillfully routed behind the jewels of the bike—the tank, engine and all the other eye-popping features you want to see. It's just another way The Motor Company goes the extra mile to give its bikes that premium, top-of-the-line fit and finish.

Hand controls on a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle are incredibly intuitive. The turn signals are self-canceling and, based on the speed and angle of the motorcycle, they know how long to stay on. Engaging the controls quickly becomes second nature so you can focus less on turning off your signal and more on basking in the freedom of the ride.

Naturally, the king of the road gets some royal extras. When it comes to hearing your tunes or just keeping your own chatter free and easy, the premium Harman Kardon audio system has it all: 4 speakers (2 up front and 2 in back) with an amplifier that distributes 40 watts per channel, an AM/FM receiver, CD and MP3 player—even an intercom and CB. It's loud, it's proud and yeah, it might as well go to 11. Plus, new for 2012, we've improved the already awesome sound by upgrading to BOOM! Audio High-Performance BOOM! Bagger speakers with customized equalization for BOOM! audio, and added BOOM! Audio Bass Booster Tour-Pak Ports to give these blasters the room to move booming deep bass. Sure, that's a lot of boom, but we figure you can handle it.

Just having the juice to let loose isn't enough to call this system custom. It's your tunes that tell the story of your life on two wheels. With an iPod® dock in the right-hand saddlebag, a module integrated into the radio, and the intuitive controls right at your fingertips, the music is now yours, and that story is yours to write. We'll even throw in an exclusively-designed 8GB iPod® nano.

You may know where you're headed, but this little dandy helps you get more out of every mile. The quick-mount cradle makes it easy to mount and detach and it plays nice with the bike's tight lines. Designed by bikers for bikers, it's preloaded with City Navigator® NT street maps and markers for H-D® dealers, motels, restaurants, fuel, ATMs and anything else you might need while out on the road.

The factory installed next-generation security system with siren features a hands-free fob that automatically arms and disarms the vehicle electronic security functions as you approach and walk away from the bike. Stick the fob on your ignition key ring and let it do all the work. For additional peace of mind, the automatic bike lock features a key fob that locks the ignition, Tour-Pak and saddlebags so you won't have to worry about leaving your valuables tucked away on your ride. It's this attention to detail and rider security that make Harley-Davidson® motorcycles unique.

A true Touring bike has to be tough enough to take on thousands of miles for years to come. Our Touring chassis is designed to do just that. Based on a single-spar, rigid backbone frame and swingarm, it easily handles the hum of that big Screamin' Eagle® engine, and it's built to last. Perfect for riders that always take the scenic route.

Confidence. Control. High-performance dual disc Brembo® brakes offer consistent stopping power. The 4-piston front and rear calipers with dual front rotor brake system is state of the art and top of the line. It's just another way The Motor Company puts a high level of detail into their bikes to give you peace of mind throughout your journey.

Harley-Davidson® motorcycles are different than any other bike out on the road. There's a balance to them. The steering, the maneuverability—It's all in concert. And each Harley-Davidson® model is tuned differently to create a unique riding experience for each individual no matter which bike they swing their leg over. Let's face it, we didn't get to where we are by being like everyone else.

With air-adjustable suspension that comes standard, you can easily adjust your ride to accommodate heavier or lighter payloads, unexpected road conditions or simply set it for how you like to roll. The lighter the load, the softer you can go by decreasing the air pressure a bit, or increase it for a more rigid ride. It's all about rider and passenger comfort and setting your bike to fit your taste—the easy way.

When the chill gets at you, just having a little heat would be nice enough. But this is a Harley-Davidson® Custom Vehicle Operations™ motorcycle and we're all about the details. Our heated handgrips have six settings, so you can easily adjust on the fly for the heat you need with the versatility and control you come to depend on.

Don't be a prisoner to the elements outside—take control of your ride with the color-matched fairing lowers on the CVO™ Ultra Classic® Electra Glide® model. Slide them open for a cooler ride or leave them fixed to fight the wind tooth and nail. Use the glove boxes to empty your pockets, ditch your phone, and ride free. When it comes to Touring, Harley-Davidson® Custom Vehicle Operations™ is all about optimal comfort every time you hunt down a horizon.

Your boots were made for riding, in any way you see fit. Our full-length rider footboards boast a tried and true design that's stood the test of time. Rubber vibration isolation offers a comfortable ride every time. And heel and toe shifting makes getting through the gears quick and easy. Plus, height adjustable passenger boards add another level of comfort for your riding partner.

Welcome to the crossroads of pure Harley-Davidson style and smart engineering. The 2-1-2 exhaust helps direct heat away from the rider and passenger, while providing ample performance, and signature Harley-Davidson rumble, and big style.

Our motorcycles are built to be ridden. A lot. So that means that rider comfort is top of mind. Always. With the Engine Idle Temperature Management Strategy (EITMS) feature, the motorcycle automatically cuts fuel and fire from the rear cylinder when idling, which helps reduce engine heat felt by rider and passenger. Best part, you can easily turn this feature on or off yourself whenever the bike is stopped.

Need help convincing someone to let you buy your CVO dream bike? Or just to come touring with you? This custom all-leather seat’s for them. Its suspended, dual control design offers the ultimate in touring luxury for rider and passenger, mile after mile. It sits low and it's trimmed in at the thighs for ultra-comfortable long-hauling. Its suspension feature acts as a secondary shock absorber. The embroidered H-D Bar & Shield passenger backrest is plush and cozy, with adjustable lumbar support. With all that plus in-seat heating, even the most finicky hangers-on will be happy to keep on going.

Harley-Davidson Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO)TM emphasizes exclusive styling and inspiring performance with four limited-production motorcycle models for 2012. Decked out with bold paint, gleaming chrome, high-output audio and the most-powerful V-Twin engines offered in production Harley-Davidson motorcycles, each CVO model is a rolling object of desire for the discerning motorcyclist.

Each 2012 CVO model is powered by the fuel-injected Twin Cam 110™ V-Twin, the largest-displacement engine offered in a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, rated at up to 122 ft. lbs. of torque. This engine is only available from the factory in CVO models. CVO motorcycles are customized using premium accessories and paint treatments combined with numerous items from the Harley-Davidson Genuine Motor Accessories catalog. The CVO program is often used to introduce new custom components and techniques before they are offered as individual accessories. Harley-Davidson CVO motorcycles are backed by a two-year, unlimited mileage warranty.
