2010 Harley-Davidson CVO Fat Bob

harleyfatbobcyrilhuzeblogHarley describes it as “Wide and Muscular”.  The 2010 CVO Fat Bob debuts an exclusive new plating process called Midnight Pearl that is featured on the headlight shell, timer and derby covers, fender strut covers and other components. An all-new paint scheme is offered in three color combinations.

Each 2010 CVO model is powered by the fuel-injected Screamin’ Eagle Twin Cam 110 V-Twin, the largest-displacement engine produced by Harley-Davidson, rated at up to 115 ft. lbs. of torque. This engine is only available from the factory in CVO models. These CVO motorcycles are produced in limited numbers by a team of highly skilled technicians in a special assembly area at the Harley-Davidson production facilities in Kansas City, Mo., and York, Pa (picture copyright H-D).

    Harley seems to be trying a little harder these days to offer all things to all riders, so kudos to the MoCo.
    Now for my 2 cents of improvement (not that they care to hear),

    1: Unclutter the handlebars, too much stuff in too small an area. If your going to put instruments on the tank you don’t need to clutter up the bars as well.
    2: Get some good looking rotors, those are still as ugly as they were years ago, and they rust.
    3: Get a different headlight bucket, that one just don’t fit, it looks like a frightened turtle.
    4: Go ahead and fire your wheel guys already, they consistently make poor choices in these days of infinite wheel styles.

    Otherwise, a valid attempt to offer some variety, especially the pickled finish instead of chrome, I also like the toned down paint instead of a bright and gawdy color. The exhaust (as far as factory ones go), and the seat, nice choices as well.

    The exhaust is ugly and clumsily done.

    Dave Blevins is right on except he forgot the headlights on a Fat Bob are dual or side by side lights and the reason they are so small and look out of place! They are!
    It would look better with a single Fat Boy headlight with a aircraft landing light installed. Then you could see where your going at night.

    Over and Over; David

    I agree…lose the headlight, exhaust and extra crap on the bars. While you’re at it, lower that front fender down so it doesn’t look so much like a moto-cross bike and put on a nice set of spoked wheels. Otherwise, nice job. With some tasteful mods, I might almost be tempted to own one of these.

    dont forget they also sell all of the things we dont like to replace the ugly crap they put on the bike stock…”pipes air cleaner and a download befroe you leave sir?” we can just add it to your financed total. more chrome? no problem..just sign here..dont worry about it

    Sort of makes sense, build a bike with fugly easy to replace parts from the outset, people will spend extra making it look half decent with parts that it should have been sold with in the first place. Which might be fine in a booming economy, but with the current economic climate it may be why new bike sales are down, people just would rather upgrade the looks and performance of their current bike.

    ” Get a different headlight bucket, that one just don’t fit, it looks like a frightened turtle” LOL a pretty apt description. You guys hit it right on the head and A1 sees beyond the intial sale as to HD’s intentions. You know,make it so the consumer can see what is right about the bike,just enough to entice them to buy the bike. I wonder if the sales guys actually mention that different pipes,headlight,ect are available and able to be added to the financed amount. Very savvy marketing. Everyone should learn from HD and what they do right.

    There is a Victory somewhere missing an exhaust!

    You got the Program A 1 Cycles. Take all the Ugly Crap off and Spend a G for Ehaust and a G for the Bars and Cables and to Run them right where they dont look intrusive and Wheels 2 G’s that’s why I keep saying Reduce the Bike by 5 G’s and you will sell Bike and Parts and………………!

    For what the CVO H-D’s run for pricewise, wouldn’t it be better just to get a custom bike built by a reputable custom shop? Just a question…

    The tires have to go. They look like lawn tractor tires.

    Hi Guys,
    I own a standard FatBob with a few extras like SE aircleaner (Black) and mufflers with blackened indicators and tail light etc and other stuff.

    The Rotors do not rust, I have done nearly 10,000 of your miles and those twin floaters have not been around that long. The handle bars on mine does not have a rev counter and with internal wiring looks clean enough.
    I would prefer a bigger head light as the little twins are crap at night ..the most important time!!
    My RK head light looks like a Nazi search light in comparison.

    The bike handles pretty good and I have fun in the curves scaring the shit out of Jappers,passing a crotch rocket on the out side of a bend is scary but freaks out the kerosene cowboys too.

    The wheels look ok and the tires look great but me and a couple of friends that own them find they aqua plane in the wet above 70mph.Good in snow and ice though ,so go figure.
    Needs an S&S cam to give it some mid range edge and a power comander! that is coming up soon hopefully..all money, always money!

    Any sugestions on the cam would be helpful

    Over all, I love it !!! it is a great bike and there are shit loads over here and Aus cause they look good and handle well on our twisty mountainous roads

    Thanks for listening

    I agree with Harry
    This is why we have shops out here that make these changes and HD loves us because the know what we want to cjhange on a OUR preference basis.
    Bigalyts and Fluke, I agree with what your saying to.
    HD is not stupid, add on’s is what most of you spend your money and most of the rtime you find a bunch of expensive parts setting in your garage waiting for a friend with a older model come and take them home foe nothing

    I hope this never ends

    Lets ride

    plz help

    The Fat Bob or CVO Fat Bob is finally a change from the boreing old ass look of the previous bikes. It uses old with new and is finally something different to keep up with the changes. Its not 1990’s anymore all bikes need not to look the same. For those that can’t hack the new looks that are coming out then I’m geussing that you are finding yourself out dressed, overlooked, and probably out of style. I think that it is time to move over and let progression continue with the times. But then again mabee we should keep everything the same so other manufacturers can continue to take Harleys bussiness. With more modern changes in motorcycles they will continue in making huge proffits and continue sending our american money out of country. USA>>USA>>USA
