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.

Handling

With all the power exploding out of the Revolution engine you expect a long list of enhanced handling features. And that's what you get. It starts at the front end of your V-Rod® motorcycle, with inverted forks. This is a racetrack inspired design that reduces the unsprung weight of the bike and keeps turning tight and responsive. Scrubbing off speed comes courtesy of high-performance Brembo brakes. For added good measure, you also get an Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) that helps reduce the chance of wheel lock-up. Also taken from the racetracks of the world, a "slipper" clutch that provides smoother high-power handling in turns and during downshifts. Connecting you to the pavement is a set of Michelin Scorcher ™ tyres. If you know your rubber, you know that means you're riding on the latest generation of compounds, plus an exclusive deep-cut tread design that improves grip and water evacuation capability. In other words, everything you'd expect on a race-bred bike.
