A LOOK AT THE 2010 HARLEY-DAVIDSON MODELS
This past Saturday marked the introduction of the 2010 line of Harley-Davidson motorcycles. Our local Nashville dealership held a special unveiling event but I was not able to go! Still, thanks to my friend Laura at the Motor Company and the awesome H-D website I was able to check out the new line-up.
Most interesting to me among the new models is the re-introduced Wide Glide… pictured above. I’ve always liked this bike and like it even more with a few retro appointments. The Street Glide Trike, pictured below is also kind of interesting with it’s vintage utility-cart-like vibe… and the Fat Boy Lo is also kind of cool.
Here is the scoop on the 2010 lineup:
The 2010 line-up is made up of 34 motorcycles and includes nine new models – the most expansive new-product introduction in the history of the Motor Company.
– 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®.
Having said all that… I still have to tell you that the H-D that I dig most continues to be the Iron 883. I mean look at it below… it’s just plain cool and the possibilities for making it even cooler are endless. Plus there is good news… the price on the Iron 883 only increased $100 for 2010!
