By next year MSRP will be $50k, the entire audio system will be optional, and the paint will be flat black.

Does Harley give you a trial period for your XM setup?

I added the Harley-Davidson SXM module to my 2018 RGU (non-CVO).  It did not come with a free trial period.  I guess if you're buying it separately, they figure you know you want SXM.

All the vehicles I've bought which came with SXM radio pre-installed did have a free trial period.  By the logic above, they figure you might not have had SXM before, so a free trial will go a long way to get you to subscribe.

Unbelievable SXM isn't standard on CVOs now.  Pretty soon, the engine will be an option.   ;)

I too installed the module on my 2018, called Sirius XM, told them I had added it to a new vehicle and they gave me three months trial period.

Just call Sirius/XM, tell them you have a new module/bike/car/radio and they will open it up for a 90 day trial.  Nothing to it really and it doesn't matter if you have an account or not OR if you bought the SXM receiver new or used.  I've done it a few times with no issues.  Best example:  We found a 2008 Escalade for our daughter/son-in-law last year with 50K on the clock (unheard of).  Called Sirius and they were more than happy to activate the radio for 90 days....easy-peasy.  They want your business

I wonder if the MOCO assumes everyone will use car play and just stream SXM ?

That's the answer I received when questioning why no Sirius on the Indian.  Polaris/Indian assumes (and probably correctly) that most folks will stream their music through their phones.  I don'a do dat.  I put all my stuff on a zip drive and/or listen to FM while traveling.  I did use the XM on the '15 SERGU until the free 3 months ran out.  We lucked out when we rode up to Canada last year...it was a free two weeks for Sirius...got it free for most of that trip.

Sounds like a good excuse to me. A $44,000 + motorcycle should include the XM module. 

Personally i really like having SXM on my bikes. Negotiate every time I renew, about $60 per year.

Hate bring this up; BMW includes the SXM functionality on there touring bikes with radio. They also give you a one year free trial period. This is on a bike that's less than $25K loaded.

Harley is just shaving another corner. In the end they know that anyone buying a $44K+ bike is not going to pass over a SXM module. Chances are they won't know until they are owners.

We all must face reality, Harley is about return to shareholders, the dealers are about the bottom line. Motorcycles are just the "product ". Building the best motorcycle, a competitive motorcycle, especially in the category supported by older riders, touring bikes, not the highest priority.

Harley is making it's investments in electric bikes, Adventure bike, other products that they feel will appeal to younger folks and those riding other brands.

I like having XM on my bike.  I put 20K plus mile a year on it so its very nice to have.  I especially like the weather and traffic with it.  This has helped me several times.

Sadly, SXM refused to give me a free trial when I called.  Didn't matter much, as I got my usual 6 months for $30, no activation fee.  Sure beats their non-negotiated $400/yr.

Installed the XM Module earlier today on my 2020 CVO Limited. The instructions for the installation are incorrect. They forgot to update them from the 2019 MY because for 2020, the GDO and telemetry unit is in the way for sliding the xm module into place. Also where they show to install the XM antenna is blocked because they have the GPS antenna in the way of mounting the antenna bracket next to the right speaker. I wound up using the antenna bracket from the 2014-2018 XM module kit. Harley also mentions that the module for the 2019-2020 is different from the 2014-2018 module. Well, it may have a different part number on it but it sure looked like the exact same module.
I believe the XM module kit part number was changed only because of the shape of the antenna mounting bracket.
I imagine on the non CVO bikes, where the GPS antenna is mounted on top of the radio, then the new bracket would work fine.
They never gave any thought for an update for the 2020 CVO bikes that don't come with XM anymore. But, I suppose, that's nothing new.


Update. Even using the XM antenna bracket from the 2014-2018 module kit on this 2020 CVO bike, the reception was awful. It worked fine on my 2017 Limited. No doubt with the WHIM, Telemetry and GDO modules under the batwing, they are sending out all kinds of radio interference for the XM antenna to operate properly. I would up placing it to the right of the fairing vent behind the windshield. Works great there.

I just bought a 2020 CVO Limited.
If you go into setup, system information, there is a section for xm subscription, I haven't tried it cuz I use Spotify but maybe it's there and people just don't know it.

Never mind: just looked at the pic I took. No ESN or Radio number. Guess that helps if you want a subscription, duh.
