Harley-Davidson's CVO series (CVO stands for Custom Vehicle Operations) doesn't do things by half. The company's premium, top-of-the-line machines often serve as test beds for new technology that usually trickles down to the mainline models, and tons of new components, accessories, and paint jobs first see the light of day on CVO bikes.

True to form, The Motor Company isn't holding back for the latest models; it's just announced three new CVO machines for 2019, each of them sporting a high-performance Milwaukee-Eight 117 engine. The new engine, exclusive to the CVO models, features 117ci of displacement, a high-performance camshaft and intake, and an elevated 10.2:1 compression ratio (that bigger powerplant sports a telltale bright red band on the rocker boxes, if you're looking to ID it). But the new CVOs are also bringing new tech to the table, each coming standard with a fresh Boom! Box GTS infotainment system, premium audio, and a choice of bold new finishes and other state-of-the-art enhancements. Yeah, there's a lot to talk about here.

First up is the 2019 CVO Limited, a loaded-to-the-gills full-luxe tourer of the type we're used to seeing in this series. Harley says the full dresser will bring "the ultimate in long-range touring comfort and luxury," and with a Milwaukee-Eight 117 motor (with the red band on the rocker boxes), heated grips, the new Boom! Box GTS infotainment system, and other new upscale accessories and graphics, you can see why.

The Boom! Box GTS infotainment system comes standard on the 2019 CVO Limited, along with a wireless headset with Bluetooth interface that connects to the GTS, so you don't have to deal with annoying cords. The headset has a range of up to 1 mile and can communicate with as many as eight other compatible headsets; the CVO Limited comes with two of the headsets included. Four Boom! Stage I speakers (paired in the fairing and Tour-Pak carrier) are powered by a single amplifier and 75 watts per channel. There's also a Tire Pressure Monitoring System function that displays current front and rear tire pressure on the Boom! Box screen and issues an alert when tire pressure is low or losing pressure.

Of course there are a pile of cool visual upgrades on the Limited too, with new Tomahawk front 19-inch and rear 18-inch wheels, and new accessories from the Kahuna Collection (seen on the shifter pegs, brake pedal cover, muffler end caps, and footboards). And on the Limited, you can also choose from three paint options:

Auburn Sunglo/Rich Bourbon/Black Hole with Contrast Chrome Tomahawk wheels; Red Pepper/Wineberry/Magnetic Grey with Contrast Anodize Tomahawk wheels; and Magnetic Grey Fade with Contrast Anodize Tomahawk wheels.

Also on tap for 2019 is the ever-popular CVO Street Glide, the ubiquitous bagger that's consistently one of The Motor Company's top sellers. In CVO form for 2019, it rolls with edgier styling, along with beefed-up performance in the form of the Milwaukee-Eight 117 engine and, yes, a mind-blowing, premium audio system to top it all off. We're talking six Boom! Stage II bi-amped speakers (paired in the fairing, lowers, and saddlebag lids) with 150 watts per channel from three separate 300-watt amplifiers (900 watts total power) for the most outrageous and enveloping factory-installed audio system Harley has served up yet. You also get the Tire Pressure Monitoring System display on the Boom! Box screen with this model.

The Blaze Red band on the engine rocker boxes identifies the upgraded M-8 117 engine, while the new Kahuna Collection features a red bar and shield inset on some components (shifter pegs, brake pedal cover, muffler end caps, heated grips, and rider and passenger boards). On the CVO Street Glide, new paint options include:

Charred Steel/Lightning Silver with Contrast Chrome Talon wheels; Wineberry/Black Forest with Contrast Anodize Talon wheels; and Black Forest with Contrast Anodize Talon wheels.

Last but not least is the 2019 CVO Road Glide , which returns with that bad-boy look and injects it with long-haul comfort and a new hopped-up powertrain. It also gets the Boom! GTS infotainment, Tire Pressure Monitoring System display, and four Boom! Stage II bi-amped speakers with 150 watts of power per channel from two separate 300-watt amplifiers (600 watts total power), and comes with one wireless headset.

On the Roadie you’ll also see that red band on the rocker boxes, signifying the M-8 117 engine, along with a new Fang Front Spoiler to enhance the already dramatic bodywork. There’s also a new Screamin’ Eagle Heavy Breather intake for bold hot-rod style, and—check this out—an exclusive Knockout 21-inch front wheel, the only factory-installed 21-inch front wheel offered on a Harley-Davidson Touring model. The plus of getting it from the factory is that the suspension is specifically engineered to work with that unique wheel size to deliver optimal performance, handling, and ride quality without compromising the fit for any accessories.

Of course there are new paint options on the CVO Road Glide as well:

Charred Steel/Lightning Silver/Black Hole with Contrast Chrome Knockout wheels and Bright Chrome covers and exhaust; Red Pepper/Magnetic Grey/Black Hole with Contrast Anodize Knockout wheels, and Mako Shark Fade with Contrast Anodize Knockout wheels.
