Harley Davidson V-Road Muscle

V-Rod® shares many of its brother’s fine engineering qualities but does so with an even more muscular presence. It too is powered by the 1250cc liquid cooled engine with dual overhead cams and four valves per cylinder, which delivers 86ft lbs. of torque at 6,500rpm. The figures are impressive but happily so are the high performance brakes and the ABS.

The fast, powerful and aggressive V-Rod Muscle® motorcycle is built for riders who want a little extra beef with their horsepower.

Big meaty air scoops, muscle-bound mufflers, 240 mm rear tire, fastback-style tail section and massive airbox compliment the power of the 1250 cc liquid-cooled Revolution® engine. Ride the V-Rod Muscle™ and you’ll learn the true definition of “power cruiser.” This brawny beast is for performance enthusiasts who crave power and control, with a dash of intimidation, in a package that is all Harley-Davidson.
