Premiere - CVO Street Glide and CVO Road Glide 2023
Harley-Davidson Hamburg North

Harley-Davidson CVO Street Glide and CVO Road Glide 2023

CVO premieres at the 120th HD Anniversary Festival in Budapest!

There is up-to-date information about the new CVO models and demo rides with the current model range are also offered in Budapest. At the start of the event it will be possible to reserve the Harley-Davidson you want online. At the beginning of next week, you can also register online for the guided tours!

Pan America Special! Together with driving instructor Ralle, we will test the Pan America on a 20 kilometer off-road course and take away valuable tips from the professional. The tour is free and there is a Pan America Adventure Bike available for you to test out.

Harley-Davidson will have the new CVO Street and CVO Road Glide models flown to Budapest in 2023. It is not certain whether they will lead the parade, but according to plans they will be presented separately on the festival grounds and for the first time in Europe! At least that's the plan if everything works out.

This information will certainly trigger one or two CVO fans a little. When the next opportunity to see them live might arise is currently unknown. A little further down is an overview of the hotels still available for the 120th HD Anniversary in Budapest.

The new CVO models are in great demand!

Although sales are generally a bit slow at the moment due to the Habeck effect, orders from Harley-Davidson dealers are coming in so well that the Road Glide CVO models for this season have already been sold. So if you bought it sight unseen, there's hardly anything else you can do if you want to do your laps on the new CVO this summer.  

Some CVO Street Glide models are still available

There are only a few CVO Street Glide models left for this season, but this depends on the dealer's quota as to whether he can still get one. 

It's crazy how quickly it can happen, even though the machines aren't even in the store yet and Harley-Davidson not only has the TOP versions, but also the price, at over 45,495 euros in Germany, which is quite an announcement although many had expected an even higher starting price. Even the surcharge of 7,140 euros for the Whiskey Neat / Raven Metallic special paint job on the CVO Road Glide didn't deter anyone. Anyone who wants to get one of these now won't be able to ride it until next season at the earliest; there are only a few of the CVO Street Glide left this year.  

Excursions can be reserved online

I received a lot of questions about the trips, and I was able to clarify some of them.

My tip would be, if you are a larger group, you might do the tours independently.

Harley-Davidson will offer ten different tours in the Budapest area. The requirements for the driver are different in each case, the longest day tour offers a tour length of approx. 351 kilometers, so you should have some driving routine with you. Approximately 170 kilometers is the shortest tour into the beautiful surroundings of Budapest.

The tours are led by experienced guides, some of whom also include German-speaking employees from Harley-Davidson. Next week there will be an online link where you can register as a participant for the tours.

Pan America Adventure Tours

There are two selected pacours for Pan America Adventure tours. These special trips are led by the Harley-Davidson driving instructor Ralle (Herbert Wiese) from Germany. Ralle is a complete professional and has chosen two routes, one for beginners and one for advanced riders, which are offered several times and can also be booked online.  

Harley-Davidson has brought its own Pan America fleet, so if you would like to drive through the terrain in a Pan America, that is easily possible.

At 281 kilometers, this is also not one of the smaller tours. Here, too, you should of course drive up with a full tank before you set off; the big tourers could definitely manage this stage with one tank of gas, just by the way.

A tour length of 161 kilometers is manageable. However, the description says something like 207 kilometers, but I think that's still manageable. Here, too, there is a great view over the plain and the journey goes through the Danube-Ipoly National Park.
