The MoCo has released their 2010 model year line-up, and an expansive lineup it it is. For 2010, Harley-Davidson will carry 34 motorcycle models, including 9 new bikes. Below is a little taste of Milwaukee Goodness.
Laura Vecchio at Harley-Davidson wrote to me, to provide some of the MoCo’s talking points for the new models:
The Electra Glide® Ultra Limited model delivers the performance upgrade of a Twin Cam 103™ engine, and features standard equipment items previously offered only as accessories on regular-production Harley-Davidson Touring models.
The new Road Glide® Custom model looks lean and mean, with a slammed suspension, 18-inch front wheel and a new 2-into-1 exhaust system.
The Wide Glide® returns as an all-new Dyna® model done in old-school chopper style, with black laced wheels, a chopped rear fender, black “wire” sissy bar, 2-1-2 Tommy Gun exhaust and an optional flame paint scheme.
The new Street Glide® Trike brings stripped-down, hot-rod styling to the three-wheel category, and joins the Tri Glide™ Ultra Classic® in an all new Trike family for 2010.
The new Fat Boy® Lo presents a darker and lower interpretation of the motorcycle that still defines the fat-custom segment.
Updates to the 2010 Street Glide® model include a larger front wheel, slimmed-down exhaust, and a new tail light assembly.
Harley-Davidson Custom Vehicle Operations™ (CVO™) will offer four new limited-production models for 2010: the CVO Softail® Convertible, CVO Street Glide, CVO Ultra Classic® Electra Glide® and CVO Fat Bob®.
I like what Harley is doing for some of their paint schemes by breaking away from solid colors, and going with factory flame paint jobs. Very nice. I’m also really liking what HD has done with the Road Glide, giving it a lowered, meaner look.
Hopefully, Ms. Vecchio will be sending me some more pics of the new models, and I’ll post them here as I get them. In the meantime, HD’s 2010 model lineup page is here.
Unfortunately, no one at HD is talking about it, and no one at Buell has contacted me, but the new Buell line-up for 2010 is out, too. They are all up at the Buell web site. At first glance, I’m not seeing a lot of changes.
Other than the demise of the Buell Blast, of course.
