Oman motoring: Harley-Davidson's new Touring bikes for 2018

The 2018 Harley-Davidson motorcycle lineup introduces the most robust array of custom Touring bikes the company has ever produced, boasting show-stopping style and plush comfort ready to smooth rough city streets or attack winding desert roads. Three new completely restyled Touring models enter the limited-edition Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) family with the largest-ever stock engine from Harley-Davidson, while new Street Glide Special and Road Glide Special models get sinister, blacked-out styling.

2018 CVO Street Glide

•Powered by the new Milwaukee-Eight 117 (1923cc) engine and given the full-on custom treatment mudguard to mudguard, with three new premium paint schemes and matching Talon wheels and rotors
•Top-of-the-line 6.5 BOOM! Box Infotainment System with Stage II speakers provides superior audio performance. To achieve the rich 900 watts of BOOM! audio sound there are three 4-channel amplifiers powering six bi-amped speakers in the fairing, fairing lower and saddlebag lids

2018 CVO Road Glide

2018 Street glide & road glide specials
Harley-Davidson takes the wildly popular Street Glide Special and Road Glide Special in a new design direction for 2018, swapping chrome for black. Powered by the muscular Milwaukee-Eight 107 (1745cc) engine, the two new hot rod baggers take the base level models and elevate them with the current custom styling statement that is sinister in design and dark in its finishes.
