    Since 2018 they taken away twin cooled engines on cvo street glides I live in a hot weather island and that's a most have. 2020 look like a sgs with new decals. They're going back on style but a lot of new technology that I don't need. I don't think I will change my 2017 cvo for now. Sorry Harley. 👎

    I would like to see an option for a double headlight on a SG.


    I don't like the satin chrome or the blacked out chrome. Yea, it's different, but not really in a good way.

    Good grief! Retro AMF like stripes. Still own a 2012 CVO Ultra & have 58k on her. I’ll never purchase another as they are a value looser. Also, you’d think CVO would build these motors with high end parts...not the case even now. I’ll keep this ol girl as a spare, buy a new bmw 1600B for full time.

    If I owned any Harley stock I would sell it based on the looks of this bike. I owned Harleys in early 2000s it appears you’re building the same model almost 20 years later.

    I think the top executives at Harley Davidson are completely out of their mind with the price they are asking for these bikes, I don't think they understand that the Harley craze is over, there are so many way more reliable motorcycles available for a whole lot less money, in less you just have this burning desire to own a Harley and a pocket full of money you really don't want! Then have at it

    As an owner of many for many years p. I started with a striped standard,then moved up to a dept bike,then a peace officer special. My last bike was a 2004 road glide I wanted the screaming eagle but they did not make it. My dealer in Edison made a deal with the factory and a break on parts. They maxed out my road glide custom paint,once it hit Edison a Jim’s 124 kit,6 speed baker conversion and a upgraded wider drive belt.96 fi head with a custom air cleaner and bassanti true dual exhaust. My cost was $25k with a full warranty. A beastly ride it sounded like a small block grabbed air in the first 3 gears and a hydraulic clutch. I forgot to mention progressive shocks and a gun slinger seat I have a 25 inch ride height. Now counting inflation I still can’t justify that price. When it came time to service my monster behind all the plates said made in Malaysia. That killed it for me. Never again when advertising ad says buy America and it’s not. Alfredo you broke my heart my brother.

    I'm more interested in the Custom Roller Tool Box in the background, and some information on that, than any of these Hardly Abelson's!!
    Just different colored lip stick on an old pig, with yesterday's technology is all! And of course, a significant price bump, for less items too...smh

    So.. Is this RDRS using technology to compensate for low riding skill? It's like the slipper clutch, people don't know how to release their clutch properly, so let's design something so they don't have to learn. I don't know. I think that's why I stick with my Sporty. Simple engine, simple drive train, easy to work on.

    Compared to its competitors HD is not just way behind but is quickly becoming an antiquated bike company. These way overpriced, fat, gaudy bikes are not going to impress anybody of today's riders. The new Honda Goldwing smokes this bike in so many ways, BMW, Indian too. Time for HD to hire a new RD team these guys are still living in the 60's and 70's trying to make a bike work in the year 2020 with house buying prices. I'll take the Iron 883 or 1200 any day over this garbage. Matt you do a phenomenal job with your videos tho man so I give 5 stars every time. Keep up the good work, HD however needs a new refresh from the inside out starting at the top. Peace.

    Just remember people you're not buying a motorcycle, you're buying a lifestyle, 40 plus thousand dollars you too can be instant biker, just buy a Harley. Here's your chance to become a biker because your mumsy and your Dada and your ex-wife wouldn't let you have a bike because they're too dangerous.

    • Matt Laidlaw

      It was a smaller piece that just went around the oil cooler and not the voltage regulator. I should have been more specific.

    I ride a 2004 Electra glide standard which still runs perfectly. I paid $12,000 and change back in late 2004. Fast-forward to 2020 and HD wants $40,500?! $40,500 for a bike, thats ridiculous!

    Who in the hell can afford that shit? I ride a paid for 15 year old Road King that's more S&S than it is Harley. Who wants to make $700+ payments for 84 months on a harley that is all dicked up with crap most folks would never use? Come on folks they are 2 cylinder tractor engines that we try to make go fast.

    I can’t believe the cvos these days I remember the 2012 cvo streetglides when all the paint jobs were badass and couldn’t decide witch one you wanted the most or how about the 2013 or 14 cvo breakouts all of those were badass and were custom what happened to making cvo dynas or fat boys it’s such a joke anymore get those hipsters out of design and get bikers in there to design some badass paint jobs

    Just hilarious to me that every year when the new Harley’s come out everyone just complains and are whiny little bitches. Almost every comment is a complaint. Go buy a Honda...! Keep up the good work Matt. Love my Harley!

    Save several thousand dollars and buy a bike that performs. Ducati. Triumph. BMW. Honda. Yamaha. Moto Guzzi. Kawasaki. Aprilia. Suzuki.
    The only advantage Harley truly has is their dealer network.

      Every manufacturer has history. Most include racing championships across several categories where other manufacturers are also allowed to enter too, they don’t just race themselves like HD. Other brands innovate and the entire industry (minus HD) takes notice and tries to make this new tech their own and put it into their bikes. Character depends on what you want out of a bike. If you just want noise and vibration, sure, maybe to you, that’s character. But if you want power and performance better than 1961 Cadillac that’s been sitting in a barn for 40 years, buy a brand other than HD. I had an 09’ Street Glide for 3 years. After about $8000 in a Stage 3 103” build from an HD shop and several other add-ons, it still just wasn’t it. My buddies stock Indian Chieftain was still faster. Brakes were horrible even after installing floating rotors because the stock ones were warped when I bought it. Shocks were awful and bottomed out on a leaf, even after installing the HD “premium” hand crank shocks, it still bottomed out on bumps or mild railroad tracks. It ran hotter than hell and hated starting recently after it had been shut off, even with the CRVs I had installed. Put gas in it and have to give your bike a few minutes to cool before trying to start it again, otherwise you try, bike starts like shit and everyone looks at you like your bike is garbage and isn’t going to start. I ended up buying two other bikes for things the HD was terrible at. Then one day I realized how asinine it was to have three bikes just because my main one, the Street Glide, didn’t perform. So all three got traded on a Ducati Multistrada Enduro. You want to talk character, between 6k on up to the 11k+ redline is the most amazing experience in life. Feeling a V-Twin revving that high gets you high - on life. Less frequent maintenance than HD. Not much cheaper cost though when maintenance is needed, but again, less frequent major services required. More storage than the HD, aluminum panniers are each big enough for a full face helmet, jacket, glasses, etc., that’s in EACH, all my stuff goes in one, all wives stuff goes in other. 100ft lbs and 160hp makes it insanely fast, no stock HD even comes close to keeping up, hell an HD with $10k+ in engine work still can’t even touch it. I can go off-road, nothing too crazy, no motocross tracks or anything, but I can fly down gravel roads and cut across fields for fun. 7.9 gallon gas tank I can go 300+ miles on a tank easy. Full LED lighting all the way around with corning lights. Safety features galore. Electronically adjustable suspension. 4 rides modes, all of which are fully customizable and significantly alter how the bike performs and handles.
      HD is dying. Everyone knows it. It’s sad to see a giant crumbling, but when you make bad corporate business choices...it happens. Hopefully the dealership owners don’t suffer from it and they can turn things around before that starts to happen, always sad to see hard working people suffer because of a stubborn, blind corporate office.
