Delivering an exclusive design combination of the nostalgic Springer® front end and a wide 240 mm rear tyre and fender, Harley-Davidson Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) rolls out a truly original motorcycle with the 2009 CVO Softail Springer. Based on a unique frame design with wide, fully polished and chrome-plated swingarm, fully polished chrome cast aluminium oil tank and a host of premium components and accessories, the CVO Softail Springer stands alone in the factory custom category.
As one of just two 2009 Harley-Davidson models with the quintessential Springer front fork design, the CVO Softail Springer presents a spiritual and exhilarating ride with authentic look and feel. The faithfully styled front end rides on an 18-inch Roadwinder™ wheel and 130mm tyre with a new four-piston brake caliper with chrome forged mount, colour-matched rigid forks and chromed spring components. The new wide 240mm rear tyre and custom bobtail wide rear fender with louver accents ride on a new 18-inch Roadwinder forged chrome wheel.
With a new, exclusively designed frame, chrome swingarm and specially tuned suspension, the CVO Softail Springer is unlike any other motorcycle. The custom seat with Buffalo inserts highlighted by contrast embroidered flames and CVO logo stretches to a custom full-length chrome fuel tank console and is topped with a speedometer with spun aluminium face. Other new components include bullet mirrors with shortened stems, and chrome-plated dipstick, fork inserts, fender struts and covers, swingarm pivot bolt covers, axle nut covers, tank emblems and wheel spacers.
The CVO Softail Springer also features exclusive granite and chrome treatment on the largest displacement production engine offered by Harley-Davidson. The 1800cc Screamin’ Eagle Twin Cam 110B™, a high-performance V-Twin engine, delivers top performance with huge torque ,thanks in part to the free-flowing heavy breather intake. The engine is rigid-mounted in the Softail frame, is equipped with internal counter-balanced shafts and is mated to 6-speed Cruise Drive transmission for lower cruising rpm in top gear.
The Centerline accessory collection returns for 2009 with grips, footpegs, brake/shifter pedals, and horn cover. Chrome accessorised components include the brake and clutch master cylinders, voltage regulator, switch housings, belt guard, debris deflector and shift lever. Front and rear brakes include Roadwinder rotors and the calipers match the granite engine treatment.
The CVO Softail Springer will be offered in three exclusive colour combinations for 2009: Black Diamond with Emerald Ice Flames, Candy Cobalt with Blue Steel Flames, and Sunrise Yellow Pearl with Volcanic Fury Flames. The metal grind flames are topped with Candy highlights making every vehicle truly custom. All models feature colour-matched frame, rigid fork and top clamp, frame inserts, and a headlight bucket with custom graphics
