Projecting super-duty pro-street presence, the new CVO Dyna Fat Bob rolls with a high-performance rumble and the flash of custom chrome. From its beefy front tyre, to its twisted Tommy Gun exhaust, to the arrogant flip of its bobtail rear fender, the 2009 CVO Fat Bob will stake its claim to a wide stretch of road.
The CVO team took Dyna® styling in a new direction when they first launched the FXDSE Screamin’ Eagle® Dyna® motorcycle in 2008. For 2009, the CVO group gives the Dyna Fat Bob the CVO treatment – bold paint, brilliant chrome and a monster motor – to create a premium custom motorcycle loaded with exclusive features.
New 16-inch Fang wheels also debut on the CVO Fat Bob. These cast-aluminium wheels feature a black powdercoated slotted centre that contrasts with a chrome rim flange with bolt-on “fang” inserts clawing over each slot. The brake discs and rotors are styled to complement the wheels. The front wheel carries a 130mm tyre with that distinctive, blocky tread pattern. On the rear is a 180mm tyre. Premium suspension includes lowered front forks and chromed rear shocks that have been re-tuned for enhanced ride comfort.
Chromed from the wheel nut covers to the triple clamps, the front end of the CVO Fat Bob is topped with a chrome pull-back riser, chrome drag-style handlebars, plus chrome switch gear, hand levers, and clutch and brake master cylinders. Hand controls, forward-mounted footpegs, shifter peg and brake pedal pad are from the Ironside Collection. A new two-piece tank console is finished in chrome and Midnight Pearl with a special CVO medallion.
CVO debuts another new material on this motorcycle’s saddle, which features a seating surface covered in Alcantara, a high-tech engineered material that looks and feels like soft, natural suede but exceeds Harley-Davidson standards for durability and comfort. The remainder of the seat is smooth black leather, and it’s finished with a recessed chrome Harley-Davidson medallion. The seat rests over a wide bobtail rear fender that holds a smoked LED tri-bar tail/brake light with a Midnight Pearl slotted cover for a dark and sinister look in the back.
Below the distinctive Fat Bob fuel tank that gives this model its name rests the largest engine produced by Harley-Davidson, the Screamin’ Eagle Twin Cam 110. Available only on CVO models, the Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI) Twin Cam 110 produces huge and features a heavy-duty, self-adjusting clutch with hydraulic actuation and 6-speed Cruise Drive transmission. The CVO Fat Bob-exclusive Tommy Gun 2-1-2 exhaust snakes around the engine before exiting through chrome blunt-cut mufflers. The header pipes, which are exposed through
the exhaust shield slots, are finished with a black coating. The powertrain is finished in CVO-exclusive granite powdercoat with chrome covers, and features new “110 CVO” badges on the chrome billet timer and derby covers.
The CVO Fat Bob is available in three colour combinations: Sunrise Yellow Pearl with Platinum Quartz, Black Diamond with Fire Quartz, and Denim Granite with Electric Blue Fade – CVO’s first ever combination of matt and gloss paint finishes. In each case, the frame, swingarm, battery cover, electrical panel cover and coil cover are colour-matched to the main bodywork colour.
