According to Harley-Davidson, the new 2010 Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) Ultra Classic Electra Glide trades the shine of chrome for a fade to black in its debut as the new, darker version of this Harley-Davidson Touring motorcycle.

Each motorcycle is serialized from one to 999, and displays an array of blacked out components.

The CVO Ultra is powered by a black and chrome Screamin' Eagle Twin Cam 110 engine and a 6-speed Cruise Drive transmission, which is the largest-displacement V-Twin engine offered from the factory by Harley-Davidson.

"With its classic bulldog shoulders stance, the Forty-Eight strikes a distinctive look and low profile that could only come from Harley-Davidson," said Ray Drea, Harley-Davidson Senior Director of Styling. "The Forty-Eight model has a collective past life experience and broken-in look that is raw and authentic."

Lying low from tire-to-tire, the Forty-Eight model showcases more of its black 1200 Evolution V-Twin engine with polished accents and other components with a clean look highlighted by the traditional peanut fuel tank, small solo seat and lightening holes in the backbone mounting bracket.
