2012 Harley-Davidson FLSTSE3 CVO Softail Convertible Review

A touring machine with the soul of a cruiser. Master the road in custom comfort or strip down to cruise the boulevard cool and clean.

The Harley-Davidson® CVO™ Softail® Convertible is a limited-production custom motorcycle that can be configured for all-day touring, two-up cruising or solo profiling by adding or detaching key components, which can be easily removed or installed without tools.

The Softail® rear suspension mimics the clean lines of a vintage hardtail frame but offers the comfort of modern suspension that is hidden under the chassis.

The Harley-Davidson® CVO™ Softail® Convertible is a limited-production custom motorcycle that can be configured for all-day touring, two-up cruising or solo profiling by adding or detaching key components, which can be easily removed or installed without tools.

The Softail® rear suspension mimics the clean lines of a vintage hardtail frame but offers the comfort of modern suspension that is hidden under the chassis. The rigid powertrain allows tight packaging of the engine and frame and creates a solid connection between the rider and the power that moves the motorcycle.

2012 CVO Softail Convertible: Detachable compact fairing, saddlebags, passenger pillion and backrest make it possible to transform the CVO Softail Convertible from touring to cruising format in minutes. For 2012, a redesigned windshield significantly reduces turbulence to the rider and integrates a Road Tech™ zumo 660 GPS Navigator with an MP3 player. Turn-by-turn voice commands play over the two-speaker audio system. The detachable leather saddlebags match the seat and passenger backrest in either distressed brown leather or black leather with reptile inserts. A welded mini-ape handlebar adds a custom touch. Electronic cruise control, keyless ignition and an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) provide touring functionality. 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.

Grab hold of the 1 ¼-inch chrome mini 'ape-hanger' handlebars and put your fists 8 inches up in the wind. The 90-degree welds scream garage custom and the internal wiring preserves a clean, premium look. Detach the fairing and extras to cut an even more dramatic figure and bring old-school chopper flavor to your top-of-the line custom cruiser.

These wheels are gorgeous in every way. Bold 18-inch wheels in front and back look great against that slammed bike profile. And the five-spoke, Stinger design is done up in fully polished mirrored chrome for a profile that's sharp, airy and distinct. The iconic Bar & Shield wheel weights and floating brake rotors are chromed out in true custom fashion.

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.

These detachable bags take the convertible nature of this beast even further. Leave them off to cruise clean and cargo-free, or easily mount them for luxurious long-haul packing and protection (they’re big enough to hold a half-shell helmet and offer sealing against the elements). Combining smooth, sleek styling with the latest convenience features, these premium leather bags come with reptile print inserts, or—for the Satin Pewter finish—in distressed brown leather that matches the seat.

Reptile print inserts bring the style. The backrest pad brings the comfort. And the all-weather leather brings the quality. Best of all, it's easy to install when you want to take someone for a ride. Or quickly detach for stripped-back solo cruising. Together with the detachable fairing and saddlebags, it's like having two bikes in one. (The Satin Pewter color-combo's seating comes in distressed brown leather styling that matches the saddlebags.)

Unique to the CVO Softail Convertible model, this high-tech gauge delivers a speedometer that toggles between mph and km/h and a unique perimeter-sweeping tachometer. Its digital, backlit 5-inch face makes for easy readouts, and the design pops with spun metal accents.

Individually-crafted and hand-finished high-impact paint and airbrushed graphics come standard on all Harley-Davidson® CVO™ motorcycles. The Crimson Red Sunglo scheme blazes with Scarlet Crystal graphics while the Satin Pewter and Abyss Blue both bristle with hand air-brushed skulls in the catacomb graphics. And for that extra mile of comfort and style, the Satin Pewter comes with distressed brown leather seat, pillion, backrest and saddlebags.

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 110B™ counter-balanced 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.

Feast your eyes on the Twin Cam 110B™ counter-balanced 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 powder-coated 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 110B™ 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. 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, alligator-styled 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.

Fire up the Twin Cam 110B™ counter-balanced engine and feel the low-end torque unleashed for a smooth ride. 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 110B™ produces 105 ft. lbs. of torque at 2750 rpm. Six speeds. A strong driveline and strong internal parts. And a low cruising rpm that couldn't feel better.

Introducing the first-ever factory cruise control on a Harley-Davidson® Softail®. It's just another way the Convertible rides the line between cruising style and touring comfort. You'll get the convenience of cruise control 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.

You may know where you're headed, but this system helps you get more out of every mile. Designed by bikers for bikers, this widescreen motorcycle nav system comes preloaded with City Navigator® NT street maps and markers for H-D® dealers, motels, restaurants, fuel, ATMs and anything else you might need out on the road. Its integrated into the instrument display and offers an easy-read format on a large-scale 4.3-inch touchscreen that's readable day or night, with a glove-friendly interface that makes using it as easy as shifting gears.

With its seamlessly-integrated MP3 player, the Garmin Zumo Navigation system gives you 4GB of memory for thousands of your favorite songs at your fingertips. And since the system automatically pauses your tunes so that you can hear its turn-by-turn voice directions clearly, the only thing you’ll get lost in is the music. Crank it up!

Your tunes in that Zumo-integrated MP3 player deserve a suitably booming system. With its 20W per channel amplifier driving its 3 ½–inch two-way speakers, the CVO Softail Convertible's system definitely delivers the rock in your roll. The amp, speakers, and volume control are housed artfully inside the inner fairing for a slick, clean look—a perfect compliment to the crisp, blanketing sound. Riding free just wouldn't be the same without the right soundtrack. Now, it's yours to write.

Talk about feeling connected to your machine. For anyone else, it's just a good-looking pile of metal. But it knows you. The ignition switch is gone and you don't even need a key to start your bike. The system features a hands-free fob that automatically arms the vehicle as you walk away from the bike. And when you get back, the system is disabled before you can swing your leg over and flip the switch to start it. It's all automatic. It just happens for you. And since the bike takes care of itself, we replaced the ignition switch with an eye-catching, back-lit medallion that glows red with the distinctive Custom Vehicle Operations™ logo.

When it comes to the CVO Softail Convertible, 'stopping power' has a double meaning. Standard on this Custom Vehicle Operations™ motorcycle, the components of our ABS are tastefully hidden within the front and rear headlight cover, 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 respond and stop smoothly when you need it to.

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.

Though you get your dream bike, your passenger might argue they're the lucky one. They'll be seen soaking up miles in touring comfort, complete with a padded backrest—not to mention a chauffeur. And when it's time for you to go alone, just quickly detach the passenger pillion, backrest and upright and hit the throttle—don't worry, underneath you'll find stylish chrome and rubber trim strips for a clean solo look.

Your boots were made for riding, in any way you see fit. Our full-length footboards boast a tried and true design that's stood the test of time. You can rock plenty of foot positions with the Rumble-style boards for your taste and comfort. Plus, rubber vibration isolation offers a smooth ride every time.

The CVO™ Softail® Convertible model is the ultimate bike for riders of all sizes. We've even added a longer side stand to make it easy for you to extend and tuck away, no matter your inseam. Polished and chrome-plated, it adds style and convenience. So when you roll up to a roadhouse, you'll be able to slide off and settle in without even breaking your stride.

The perfect saddle for riders craving that low-down slammed West Coast style. At a sunken 24.4 inches, this seat is one of the lowest you'll find on a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle. And the slim nose makes it even easier to get your feet flat on the ground. Riders of all sizes can sink down in the saddle and confidently stalk the boulevard in comfort. As for style, the Satin Pewter scheme’s seat is distressed brown leather that matches the saddlebags, pillion and backrest for rugged but luxurious looks, while black reptile print inserts give the Abyss Blue and Crimson Red Sunglo combos a touch of classic detail.

The CVO Softail Convertible model is all about options. We’ve redesigned the fairing for 2012, making it taller and wider for enhanced wind protection—it helps you beat the elements over the long haul but detaches easily if you want to cruise in the wind. The windshield-mounted Zumo™ Road Tech 660’s voice directions will keep you on track wherever you're going, or you can put it to a more entertaining use: booming your favorite road tunes from its integrated MP3 player through the built-in speakers and amp.

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.
