CVO Road Glide ST | 2024 Harley-Davidson

Harley-Davidson says the new CVO Road Glide ST is the company’s “quickest, fastest, and most sophisticated performance bagger.” The West Coast-style bagger is powered by the Milwaukee-Eight 121 High Output V-Twin, an engine exclusive to this model that churns out 127 hp and 145 lb-ft of asphalt-buckling torque. Selectable ride modes include Road, Sport, Track, Track Plus, Rain, and multiple Custom modes.

Lightweight materials, including mufflers with titanium shells, an oil pan made of composite, and forged carbon fiber used in the muffler end caps, front fender, seat cowl, and tank console, along with revised wheels and wave-style front brake rotors, help keep dry weight to 800 lb, 25 lb less than the CVO Road Glide.

The CVO Road Glide ST is equipped with fully adjustable Showa suspension, with an inverted 47mm 1×1 fork and dual rear shocks with remote reservoirs, and Brembo braking components.

A full suite of infotainment is powered by Skyline OS, and a large color touchscreen replaces all analog instrumentation and most switches. Premium audio includes a 500-watt amplifier and Rockford Fosgate Stage II 6.5-inch fairing speakers.

The CVO Road Glide ST will be available in two paint schemes: Golden White Pearl or Raven Metallic. In addition to CVO 25th Anniversary graphics, a Screamin’ Eagle graphic on the fairing sides and fuel tank is inspired by the Screamin’ Eagle Harley-Davidson Factory motorcycles raced in the MotoAmerica King Of The Baggers series.

Pricing for the 2024 Harley-Davidson Street CVO Road Glide ST starts at $42,999.

  1. I’m liking that CVO Road Glide with the 121cu. Milwaukee 8. I haven’t bought a new one since I bought my 02 right after the 01 dealers meeting. They were tough to find back in the day. Gonna be 68 in April, hopefully I have a few more years to enjoy a new bike.

    • These are clearly formulaic H-D’s, nothing really too far off the beaten path. I am 71, and my very first bike was a Harley. What puzzles me is to whom these are being marketed. Not people in my age bracket (although I have the means to buy any bike I want). I can’t see the younger folks forking out 25 to 35 grand for these bikes. So, I guess that leaves somebody in between ? Not sure what Harley’s demographics are for marketing at this point. In any event, I hope HD survives and can figure out a way to keep the marque alive.

      • I’m 75 years young and ride between 4,000 and 6,000 miles a year. Stay healthy and in shape and you’ll get many more years of enjoyment.

    • I think is call keeping up with changes the “new” old people were born in the 70’s and their taste are different from the old people from before. Changes are good man ..we cannot stay with the same old bikes what would be the point of having a new bike if still looks old? Yet you’ll be paying absurd amount of money

  2. I am 60 years old. Ride less than I used to…but still weekly…and a trip or two a year. There is NO way I could afford a $30000+ motorcycle. Heck I couldn’t even afford a car that cost that much!!!!!

  3. I was hoping for a sporty light motorcycle with good power and handling. The Sportster S with real suspension , wheel travel , 25 degree rake, proper trail and a 120/17 front tire. Not this year.

  4. This must be the bikes for lawyers and dentists garages. If I won the lottery I’d buy something else. My first motorcycle was a Harley and I’ve owned several but the prices are outrageous even for the non CVO versions. They are boutique motorcycles for an aging demographic with money to burn. Had to dump the stock, I was losing money on it quicker than I could flush it down the toilet.

  5. Would love to have and ride the 2024 CVO Road Glide ST, but at $50000.00 plus I will never be able to own one with the salary I make. Beautiful bike though.

  6. I think Harley has lost their minds. That CVO I was looking at 10 years ago at 40k. Is now 60K. No apprecian has gone up that fast. Try to trade it in and you will get 23k with low milage. So dissapointed in Harleys Greed. Of course I was pissed at a 50.oo T shirt from Harley too.

  7. Turned 80 this year. Been riding since college. Current ride 2003 Yamaha RSV with 106,600 miles. Considered Indian Pursuit as last new bike. Retired and comfortable but the. 35k out door price killed that idea.
    Thought maybe I’d go up the road and look at HD’s.
    Guess I’ll keep what I have. It’s taken me DC, 49 states and all Canadian provinces. I agree, who will buy these?

  8. Throughout so many past decades I tested all brands of popular motorcycles, incl. few Harleys, but now, beside sound, quality of chrome and paint, nothing exits me about them anymore. For the best equipped Honda Goldwing, today I could buy 2 HD, but why?

  9. I was hoping that Harley-Davidson would produce some $4000 to $8000 basic bikes that were more focused on the younger riders in this Country with a limited income. More bikes that were very basic and stripped of fluff, just basic transportation .
    . Much Smaller, much less horsepower, more efficient (and cheap) V Twin engines if Honda can build them in Ohio, Harley can build em in Pennsylvania…..
    . I should go work for them..

  10. looks like a 40 year old honda gold wing . my 2 harleys are over 35 years old run fine look good and i got them both brand new still ride at 70 getting ready for daytona bike week

  11. I bought a new Road king classic in 1998 the bike is in immaculate condition. After 25 years of servicing the bike myself I decided to take it in to the dealer for a professional service. I was told by two different dealers in Vancouver that they don’t work on bikes that old anymore. I don’t think my next bike will be a Harley. Richard

  12. All the new baggers are point on the new body work and electronic upgrades are a big plus but I have no desire to be wheeling around an 800plus lb motorcycle Harley needs to build more Bikes like the Low Rider ST and how about a middleweight sport touring sportster bikes that would appeal to young and old who don’t want to lug around the BIG AND MUCH TO HEAVY BAGGERS
