In this episode, I'm joined by Lurch and we talk about the recently released 2024 Harley-Davidson Touring Models. Specifically the 2024 Road Glide, the 2024 Street Glide, and the 2024 CVO Road Glide ST. I had the opportunity to ride these backs recently in Law Vegas at a Harley-Davidson media event.
I learned quite a bit of information to pass along to you, the consumer. In the episode, I get into motor size. Variable Valve Timing (VVT) motors versus non-VVT motors, suspension, the new Skyline OS Operating System, performance parts, and more. Hopefully, the info we provide will help you decide which bike is right for you.
The 2024 Road Glide and Street Glide only come in one model which we are referring to as the Standard model. For the last several years you could purchase a standard model and a special model. The standard model was more affordable but lacked many desirable items. The special model cost more but had many upgraded items. Now, the “standard” model comes with everything the special models of the past had. The starting price point (chrome finishings) comes in at a price in between what the standard and special model cost. One thing to note is black finishings and certain colors cost more. The new “standard” model is a good starting platform to build from. You can go the performance bagger or the long haul touring route with them.
The 2024 CVO Road Glide ST is an all-new model. It is inspired by the King of the Baggers race series. I've been predicting a bike like this for some time. My prediction was wilder including mid controls for more lean angle allowing an amature racer to take it out on the track out of the box. The CVO Road Glide ST has many race-inspired upgrades including carbon fiber parts, an M8 121 motor with upgrades, performance SHOWA suspension, radial Brembo brakes, special track modes, and more.
So, you may want to know if you should buy a standard Road or Street Glide, or should you buy a CVO Road Glide ST? Here is what I will say; look back on your last two years of riding and evaluate the type of riding you do. The CVO ST may be the bike for you if want to haul ass and carve up the canyons. Alternatively, the “standard” models may be best if you want to tour. Ultimately you'll be happy if you purchase either. Now, get out there and ride already!
