Limited VS CVO

Waiting for a 2020 Limited to come in and found a 2016 CVO RG with 3000 miles on it for 10K less. Looking at pros and cons of each.....anybody have an opinion or maybe have owned an older and a post '17 one? Looking at the CVO tomorrow and wondering what to do if it is as perfect as the pics...

Have a ‘16 CVO RGU.
How are you only seeing $10k difference? I would say you could find one for a lot better price than that.

Bit to your question. There are some things you just need to know about the 110” CVOs if your talking about the v-twins.
Like CHANGE the lifters before you take possession. The only other thing that comes to mind right off the bat is the water pumps on the water cooled models. They’ve been known to go out. They have a new pump now that sounds like they have them fixed.

I just bought a 2015 CVO RGU with 4,600 miles on it. Some of the things you get on the CVO only matter to some people. You have to look at the added features that a CVO has to decide if it is worth it.

Now I can say this. The new GTS radio is nicer and easier to use but I don't know if it is enough to make that big a difference. Make sure they have all the added options that go with a CVO like the garage door receivers, Gold key, CVO cover.
Also you get steel braided lines and painted inner fairing.

I've only seen one limited so I can't say how it compares. I went from a 2011 to the 2015.

Forgot to mention...I have a '15 CVO Street Glide so I am intimately familiar with the 110...The Road Glide only has 3000 miles on it so I have some time with the lifters..but yeah..I usually do a cam and lifters to them anyway.

As for price..they are looking for 23,500K for the CVO and the new bike is 33,800. I'm guessing the CVO price is based on the really low mileage

If money was no object...

As a current owner of a 2015 CVO Road Glide Ultra who is currently faced with replacing the water pump (being done as I type) and replacing the lifters and inner cam bearings (coming up on 30K and extended warranty just expired), I would be looking exclusively at the 2020 Limited if I were making a purchase decision today. You’ve already got a 110 vintage bike in the stall, why would you want two?

Not knowing your budget but if it weren't a real issue I would go with the 2020. While the CVO is nice I really believe you would love the feel of the M8 over the TC. Now I am still a huge TC fan and I plan on building my own custom bike with a TC engine, I feel the M8 is just a better feel for touring. From the looks of the new oil pump that the MoCo has come out with and the new primary vent it looks like the prior M8 issues have been resolved. Like was stated above, since you already have a CVO TC bike I would add something a little different to the stable. I would bet the if you do add the M8 you may end up selling the CVO down the road.
