New $36,499 Harley Davidson....

2010 Harley-Davidson CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide goes Dark

Every year, Harley-Davidson breaks out the good ol' Accessories Catalog to bedeck a few of its most desirable models in a veritable smorgasbord of chrome, leather and outlandish paint schemes. See here, here, here and here for photo evidence of this undeniable fact. For 2010, though, The Motor Company is taking a darker approach to its highest-end model, the CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide.

H-D slathers the dark on its new CVO model, with the whole Gloss Black Rumble Collection making its appearance on the Glide. In total, the Crimson Mist Black / Dark Slate (with flame graphics, naturally) motorcycle comes with approximately 185 unique black parts, components and accessories, which join a black and chrome Screamin' Eagle Twin Cam 110 engine (that's 1803cc and 115 pound-feet of torque, H-D's biggest and most powerful factory V-twin) and a six-speed Cruise Drive transmission to complete the nearly chromeless motif.

Harley's whole bag of techno tricks are also featured on the CVO Ultra, including a 160-watt CD/AM/FM/WB/MP3 Advanced Audio System by Harman-Kardon, CB and intercom, passenger audio with controls, cruise control and standard XM Radio. Finally, the HD-specific Garmin Road Tech zūmo 660 GPS unit with touch-screen display tells you where to point the handlebars.

Want one? Harley-Davidson only plans to build 999 CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide in 2010, each with a base price of $36,499, which makes this the most expensive model in Harley's entire lineup this year. Check out our high-res image gallery below and click past the break for the complete press release.





$36,499 !!!!!......I will never think Ducati's are overpriced again.

Some of the CVO HD models are cool, but they are over priced. Nowhere nearly as over priced as customs get though. It blows me away how many guys are spending $50k plus on raked out choppers.

the overpriced custom market died a couple years ago along with the overpriced housing market

And H-D is the only brand that sells for over the MSRP.

And those Buells they were blowing out at those super low prices? The dealers were still making almost $3k on them.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

you gotta pay extra for light weight (carbon, Ti, etc) and you have to pay extra for thick ass steel as well, apparently.

HD doesn't sell for list anymore unless you have ZERO negotiating skills.

I figured the custom market would have slowed waaaay down too, but I don't know how many guys I ran into this summer at Freddies, The Broken Oar, & a few other stops that just bought new customs. FWIW, some of them were former boat owners that bailed when gas prices soared but it still surprises me.
