The dark horse always has the most mystique

Authentic Styling

Take a good, long look at a V-Rod® motorcycle. Massive rear tyre. Low, aggressive profile. Dragstrip-inspired handlebar. If you have a hard time figuring out where the performance leaves off and pure style begins, you've got the right idea. The V-Rod® family was our first line of liquid-cooled motorcycles, and when we experienced the explosive power of the Revolution engine we knew we had something very good on our hands. So we went deep into our racing heritage for the fire-breathing looks. The big 240mm rear tyre enhances the dragster styling. It's also the only way you're going to harness all the off-the-line power. The pipes are a big part of the performance equation. They're also proof that a performance exhaust doesn't need to look like it's welded out of coffee cans. Notice how even the radiator is styled to become part of the design instead of an interruption to the flow of the eye. Speed bumps, even of the visual variety, are not allowed.

Iconic Engine

Like everything on a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle, there's a story behind the 1250cc Revolution engine powering the bikes in our V-Rod® series. This one starts on the racetrack, with the company's VR1000 superbike engine. Watching it roar around the track got the gears turning on a way to bring the same sort of high-end performance to the street. So the story takes us to Germany, and a unique collaboration with legendary automaker Porsche and their world-renowned team of engineers. The final result? Dual overhead cams. Four-valve heads. Liquid cooling. A velvety smooth delivery of power all the way up to redline. In short, the industry's most perfect blend of torque and horsepower in a revolutionary high-revving V-Twin design. There couldn't be anything more uniquely Harley-Davidson® than that.

Comfort

Riding a performance machine is all about confidence and control. They come a lot easier when you're comfortable in the seat of your machine. That's why we've made the feeling of being astride a V-Rod ® motorcycle unlike anything most riders have ever experienced. The seat itself is a deep bucket design, derived from what we've learned keeping riders glued to their machines at the blinding speeds of the racetrack. We set the seat low, which further adds to the feeling of certainty and control whether you're throttling up or slowing things down. The handlebars and rider foot pegs are placed so you ride low and mean, but with the controls close and comfortably in reach. Whether you're aiming for the quarter mile mark or a fast road out of town, you can kick back into an easy riding posture for the ultimate power cruise.
