The Street Glide® and the Road Glide® are among the most popular and critically acclaimed touring motorcycles on the market, and the team at Tampa Bay Harley-Davidson® is thrilled to announce that we now have the 2023 Harley-Davidson® CVO™ Street Glide® and 2023 Harley-Davidson® CVO™ Road Glide® available to purchase and lease. This is a big year for both of these models as they’ve received significant updates to the fairings, infotainment systems and suspensions.
The key difference when comparing the 2023 Harley-Davidson® CVO™ Street Glide® vs 2023 Harley-Davidson® CVO™ Road Glide® is that the CVO™ Street Glide® has a fork-mounted fairing while the CVO™ Road Glide® has a frame-mounted fairing. This will be the deciding factor for most customers as otherwise, the characteristics are the same and include a windscreen, heated grips, two-up seating, floorboards, an infotainment system, premium audio and advanced safety enhancements.
Another big change for the 2023 Harley-Davidson® CVO™ Street Glide® and 2023 Harley-Davidson® CVO™ Road Glide® is that these models are now powered by the Milwaukee-Eight® 121 V-twin engine. This engine replaces the Milwaukee-Eight® 117 as the most powerful air-cooled engine in the lineup. The exhaust, drive chain and chassis are all the same between these two models.
Harley-Davidson® has introduced its largest infotainment touch screen yet at 12.3 inches, and that tech debuts on the 2023 Harley-Davidson® CVO™ Street Glide® and 2023 Harley-Davidson® CVO™ Road Glide®. Features include voice control, integrated navigation, apps, media streaming and much more.
Cruise control, anti-lock braking and the Reflex linked Brembo brakes are all included standard. In addition, the advanced safety enhancements that are optional with most Street Glide® and Road Glide® models are included here as well: vehicle hold control, TPMS, cornering-enhanced ABS, standard and cornering-enhanced traction control and so forth.
There aren’t many customization choices that you have to make at purchase. The default design for both these bikes features the Dark Platinum paint with a dark finish and pinstriping. You also have the choice of a premium design. It has a traditional chrome finish with Whiskey Neat as the primary paint and Raven Metallic for accenting. There is an excellent support for both these models in the H-D® catalog as well. One of the most popular options is the Tour-Pak with luggage carrier, and you can purchase it color matched to whichever design you choose.
We have the full H-D® lineup available at Tampa Bay Harley-Davidson®. If you do want the Tour-Pak, you may want to consider the CVO™ Road Glide® Limited as it is fully dressed. Other options include the Road Glide® Special, Street Glide® Special, Road Glide® Limited, Road Glide® ST and Street Glide® ST.
