What’s New for 2023
Not much has changed for the 2023 model year. Harley-Davidson® has made some minor revisions, including new color options. There are major changes to some of the variants, however, such as the CVO™ Road Glide® and CVO™ Street Glide®, which receive a new engine and upgraded suspensions.
These models are both versatile touring motorcycles with two-up seating, forward foot controls, windscreens, saddlebags and infotainment systems. The main difference when comparing the 2023 Harley-Davidson® Road Glide® vs 2023 Harley-Davidson® Street Glide® is the fairing design. The Street Glide® has a fork-mounted setup whereas the Road Glide® has a frame-mounted configuration. Which is best for you comes down to preference, and deciding that may require a test ride.
There are no practical performance differences as these models are both powered by the Milwaukee-Eight® 107 V-twin engine, which delivers ample performance for the average rider. If you do want more performance, you have a number of options. You could have us install a Screamin’ Eagle® upgrade kit, or you could choose one of the special editions. There are Road Glide® and Street Glide® models with the Milwaukee-Eight® 114, 117 and even the new 121.
Both models come with the Boom!™ Box infotainment system with a 4.3-inch screen. A 6.5-inch screen is optional. ABS and electronic linked braking are available as standalone options. You can also opt for the RDRS suite. It includes those options but also vehicle hold control, TPMS and the cornering-enhanced assists.
The 2023 Harley-Davidson® Street Glide® and 2023 Harley-Davidson® Road Glide® both have a classic chrome finish, and this is paired with Vivid Black as the standard appearance included in the MSRP. The premium options are Redline Red and Atlas Silver Metallic. There are also more options available, including a black finish, through the special editions.
