Harley-Davidson's profilation of this bikeIf you think all the blacked-out metal looks sinister, you’ve got the right idea. The Night Rod® Special motorcycle is pure aggression from fast back tail section to streamlined front end, built around a liquid-cooled 60° V-twin engine stuffed full of racing-derived serious business like dual overhead cams, 4-valve heads and velocity stacks feeding its double barrel exhaust. In other words, things happen when you twist the throttle. Better if it all happens under the cover of darkness.

    The Harley-Davidson VRSC (V-twin racing street custom), or V-Rod, is a line of V-twincruisermotorcycles made by Harley-Davidson from until They are often called muscle bikes for their relatively high power output. The V-Rods are first modern Harley-Davidson street motorcycles with double overhead camshafts (DOHC) and liquid cooling.

    Overview[edit]

    The VRSC was introduced in in a single model called the V-Rod aiming to compete against Japanese and American muscle bikes. The V-Rod's Revolution Engine originated with the liquid cooled, four valve per cylinder, overhead cam, degree V-twin engine Harley-Davidson created for its VR racing bike;[6]Porsche Engineering, with the aid of a few Harley-Davidson engineers, developed the engine.[7][8][9] Unlike other Harley-Davidson production motorcycles, the radiator and the hydroformed frame members support the round-topped air cleaner cover. The fuel tank on the V-Rod is located underneath the seat, placing the rider on top of it, rather than the usual frontal placement. The "tank" in this case is actually the cover for the air box and coolant fill port. Loosely based on the VR Superbike, Harley-Davidson built it as a platform for drag-racing competition machines. All VRSC models are produced at Harley-Davidson's Vehicle and Powertrain Operations facility in Kansas City, Missouri.

    Harley-Davidson has collaborated with Porsche before, in the Nova Project of the s, which, like the V-Rod, was a radical departure from Harley-Davidson's traditional lineup. Nova was cancelled in , in favor of the Evolution engine.[10] A derivative of the Revolution called the Revolution X was later used on the entry-level Harley-Davidson Street, first released in

    Public reception[edit]

    Car & Driver said Harley-Davidson's branding was "culturally rather than technologically driven; so imagine our surprise at seeing the company's newest ride, the V-Rod, complete with a liquid-cooled DOHC four-valve V-twin developed in partnership with Porsche Engineering." They added, "we think the V-Rod is a serious threat to its own stablemates as well as to cruisers from other manufacturers. It's that good".[11]

    Motorcycle Cruiser wrote "The V-Rod was intended to bring in more than the usual suspects, and it did. It became the company's best-selling bike in other countries. In America, V-Rod buyers often came from other brands, attracted by its modern engine, excellent performance and not-the-usual-cruiser style".[5]

    Models[edit]

    VRSCA V-Rod at Porsche Museum

    VRSCA V-Rod[edit]

    Model years: – The original V-Rod had a 1,&#;cc (&#;cu&#;in) Revolution Engine, producing a claimed &#;hp (86&#;kW) at the crank.[citation needed] The V-Rod had 49&#;mm forks and a &#;mm rear tire, with solid disc wheels. The VRSCAs were all factory equipped with &#;US&#;gal (14&#;l; &#;imp&#;gal) fuel tanks. In the VRSCA was equipped with Brembo brakes. The VRSCA was only offered with forward controls. models were included in the th anniversary edition.

    VRSCAW V-Rod[edit]

    Model years: – The VRSCAW V-Rod is the successor to the VRSCA. First Produced in , it is essentially a VRSCA with a new frame to accommodate the &#;mm rear tire and five gallon gas tank that came standard. The aluminum bodywork of the VRSCA was used in a few early-production VRSCAW models, but was later dropped. With these changes the VRSCAW is a claimed 37&#;lb (17&#;kg) heavier than its predecessor. For the first production year the power-plant remained an unchanged 1,&#;cc (69&#;cu&#;in) Revolution engine. The VRSCAW was only offered with forward controls. The combination of increased weight, and a &#;mm rear tire with no power increase made the VRSCAW the slowest production VRSC produced

    In the VRSCAW V-Rod's Revolution was increased from 1,&#;cc to 1,&#;cc (&#;cu&#;in), producing a claimed 84&#;lbf⋅ft (&#;N⋅m) @ 7,&#;rpm, and peak power of &#;hp (92&#;kW) at the crankshaft,[citation needed] a slipper clutch was also added, as was an anti-lock braking system option. For the model year the VRSCAW replaced the VRSCD, which was dropped from the line, as the "base model" for the VRSC family, and the suggested retail price was reduced.

    VRSCB V-Rod[edit]

    Model years: – The VRSCB V-Rod had a two-year run. It was mechanically identical to the VRSCA, with cosmetic differences included a black frame, polished aluminum and black powder-coated engine, and a slightly different clamshell, instrument housing and handlebars. The VRSCB was only offered with forward controls.

    VRSCD Night Rod[edit]

    Model years: – The Night Rod was introduced in as the “new hot rod-inspired motorcycle” built around the Revolution engine. The Night Rod has mid controls similar to the Street Rod. These are the only two V-Rod models with mid controls (Rear sets). Straight-shot mufflers helped the Revolution Engine to produce a claimed &#;hp (89&#;kW) at the crank. The Night Rod had a black frame, black and chrome engine, Brembo brakes, slotted aluminum disk wheels, and a color-matched fairing. In the VRSCD Night Rod's Revolution was increased from 1, to 1,&#;cc ( to &#;cu&#;in), producing a claimed 85&#;lbf⋅ft (&#;N⋅m) @ 7,&#;rpm, and peak power of &#;hp (93&#;kW) at the crank,[citation needed] a slipper clutch was also added, as was an ABS option. For the model year, the VRSCD was the only remaining VRSC model to still have a &#;mm rear tire or mid-pegs. was also the final year of production for the VRSCD Night Rod.

    VRSCDX Night Rod Special[edit]

    Model years: –

    The VRSCDX is marketed as the factory made custom version of the standard Night Rod and is also part of Harley-Davidson's "Dark Custom" series. In addition to a &#;mm wide rear tire, most of the chrome components of the VRSCD were replaced with black. The wheels were replaced by black slotted disk wheels, with dark orange pin striping. The Straight shot dual exhaust produced a claimed &#;hp (89&#;kW) at the crank.[citation needed] A 5-gallon tank was standard. The DX also include racing stripes. In the VRSCDX Night Rod Special's Revolution was increased from 1, to 1,&#;cc ( to &#;cu&#;in), producing claimed torque of 85&#;lbf⋅ft (&#;N⋅m) @ 7,&#;rpm, and peak power of &#;hp (93&#;kW) at the crank,[citation needed] a slipper-clutch was also added, as was an ABS option. For the model year, Harley-Davidson launched a tenth anniversary version of the Night Rod Special. This model had a straight-shot exhaust with dual, chrome slash-cut mufflers and chrome exhaust shield; split five-spoke cast aluminum wheels with diamond cut highlights; pullback handlebar with polished finish; inverted front forks in silver and polished finishes; stylized, chrome speed screen visor; graphics, including V-Rod 10th anniversary emblem; and chrome powertrain with platinum crankcase and heads.

    VRSCF V-Rod Muscle[edit]

    Model years: – The V-Rod Muscle was introduced in the summer of at the Harley-Davidson dealer show in Las Vegas for the production model year. In promoting the Muscle, American fashion modelMarisa Miller was hired for an advertising campaign aimed at younger, urban riders.[12] It would be one of only three VRSC models for Like the other two models, the Muscle used the 1,&#;cc (&#;cu&#;in) Revolution Engine, a &#;mm wide rear tire, 5&#;US&#;gal (19&#;l; &#;imp&#;gal) fuel tank, slipper clutch and forward controls. Unlike the other models in the VRSC lineup, the Muscle had straight shot dual exhausts, with a crossover, one on each side of the bike, unlike the 2>1>2 exhaust found on all other VRSC models. Additionally, the Muscle used an air-box with mock-up air-rams like those found on many American pony and muscle cars. In the production version of the bike the air-rams are cosmetic. The VRSCF also had a chopped rear fender with integrated turn signals, and a side-mounted license plate. Turn signals were integrated into the rear view mirrors for the first time as a stock feature on a Harley-Davidson motorcycle. The VRSCF provided at the crank a claimed 86&#;lbf⋅ft (&#;N⋅m) of torque at 6,&#;rpm,[citation needed] which was slightly more torque than the other VRSC models, at a slightly lower engine speeds.

    Claimed peak crank horsepower was slightly lower than the Night Rod Special, at &#;hp (91&#;kW) at &#;rpm lower engine speed.[citation needed]

    VRSCSE Screamin' Eagle CVO V-Rod[edit]

    Model years: In Harley-Davidson's Custom Vehicle Operations produced their first V-Rod. The dimensions were identical to the VRSCA at the time, but the VRSCSE had extra chrome, custom paint, and not the typical "clamshell" found on other VRSC models. The VRSCSE had a 1,&#;cc Revolution Engine, with CNC ported heads.

    VRSCSE2 Screamin' Eagle CVO V-Rod[edit]

    Model years: The VRSCSE2 was the first V-Rod or VRSC model with a &#;mm rear tire. It also used the Screamin' Eagle 1,&#;cc Revolution Engine.

    VRSCR Street Rod[edit]

    Model years: – The Street Rod was marketed as the “roadster-inspired” member of the VRSC line. The Street Rod was the first VRSC to use inverted forks (made by Showa Corporation) with a steep rake and also was the first to use Brembo brakes.[5] It had the highest seat height at 30&#;in (&#;mm) of any VRSC model, and claimed the greatest lean angle at 40°, over the 32° lean of the other VRSC models. The Street Rod came equipped solely with mid-mounted controls. The Street Rod was the first with a 5-gallon tank in the year model, that would become standard for the line in Of the various versions of the V-Rod, the VRSCR Street Rod roadster was aimed primarily at the European market[3] and was best able to handle the engine's &#;bhp output. MCN wrote: "The Harley-Davidson Street Rod has sharper steering, four-piston brakes made for Harley-Davidson by Brembo, new upswept exhausts for extra ground clearance, and a revised riding position makes this a Harley-Davidson like no other – one that attacks corners with glee".

    VRSCX V-Rod[edit]

    Model years: Harley-Davidson put out the VRSCX as a Screamin' Eagle Tribute bike during the Harley-Davidson V-Rod's second consecutive NHRA Championship. The VRSCX had the same dimensions as the VRSCAW, featuring the &#;mm rear tire, 5&#;gallon gas tank, and forward controls. However, the VRSCX also had paintwork similar to the pro stock V-Rod, a smoked drag-visor windshield, as well as the 1,&#;cc Screamin' Eagle Revolution Engine. were built.

    VRXSE V-Rod "Destroyer"[edit]

    In Harley-Davidson introduced a non-street legal eight-second drag bike nicknamed "the Destroyer". Its Revolution engine had a longer-stroke crankshaft and increased bore, high compression forged pistons, larger valves, larger throttle bodies, dyno tuned velocity stacks, and high lift cams. Race-only drivetrain changes included a lightened flywheel, multi-stage lock-up clutch, pneumatic shifter, and programmable shift light. A total of vehicles were produced with released to dealer showrooms. The Destroyer inspired the four-time world champion NHRA Pro Stock motorcycle Harley-Davidson Screamin' Eagle/Vance & Hines V-Rod. The Screamin' Eagle/Vance & Hines V-Rod ran seconds and went nearly &#;mph in the quarter-mile.[4]

    The Revolution engine[edit]

    The Revolution engine is based on the VR Superbike race program, developed by Harley-Davidson's Powertrain Engineering team. It is a liquid-cooled, dual-overhead-cam, internally counterbalanced 60&#;degree V-twin engine with a displacement of 1,&#;cc (&#;cu&#;in), producing horsepower (86&#;kW) at 8,&#;rpm at the crank, with a redline of 9,&#;rpm.[13][14] It was introduced for the new V-Rod line in for the model year, starting with the single VRSCA (V-Twin Racing Street Custom) model.[15]

    A 1,&#;cc Screamin' Eagle version of the Revolution engine was made available for , and was present thereafter in a single production model from to In , the 1,&#;cc Revolution Engine became standard for the entire VRSC line. Harley-Davidson claims horsepower (92&#;kW)[citation needed] at the crankshaft for the VRSCAW model. The VRXSE Destroyer is equipped with a stroker[clarification needed] (75&#;mm crank) Screamin' Eagle 1,&#;cc (79&#;cu&#;in) Revolution Engine, producing over horsepower (&#;kW).[citation needed]

    The V-Rod engine was used in the Campagna V13R, and Campagna T-Rex from around to [16] There is an agreement to sell the engines to the company for use in the motorized trike. Then in the company changed the engine in the T-Rex to BMW's K but still uses the V-Rod engine in the V13R.[16]

    Blacked-Out Look

    Pitch black and sinister as hell, the Night Rod® Special model is aggressively styled from the front end to the back. Engine, wheels, forks, triple clamps, swingarm—they're all blacked out and thick with uncompromising, drag strip attitude.

    Double-Barrel Exhaust

    The Night Rod® Special motorcycle proves that a performance exhaust can still be a beautiful set of pipes. The double-barrel exhaust features brushed finish dual mufflers, black end caps and exhaust shields. Performance and bold style erupt with every crack of the throttle.

    Fat Rear Tire

    Behold an ultra-fat, mm rear tire for a powerful, no-nonsense look and added grip. Harnessing explosive, off-the-line power, the rear tire on the Night Rod® Special motorcycle enhances the pure dragster look with the sticky, high-performance tread you need for staying glued to the pavement.

    Low-Rise Handlebar

    Grab the slammed blacked-out drag-style handlebar for an aggressive riding position—slightly forward and reminiscent of tearing up the racetrack, but easily within reach for plenty of riding comfort along with that attitude.

    Radiator Design

    Every inch of a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle is created to sync up with the bike's overall look and performance. The Night Rod® Special is no exception. As our very first liquid-cooled rides, we turned to styling to make sure the radiator on the V-Rod®models became part of the design instead of an interruption to the flow of the eye.

    Premium Paint

    Up to two times thicker than the competition, custom quality paint comes standard on all Harley-Davidson® motorcycles. Clearcoat layering up to five mils deep. Bigger metal flakes. Unique effects. Skimping simply is not in our vocabulary.

    Streamlined Front End

    With its color-matched speedscreen pared down to bare performance minimum, its sleek headlamp and slotted-bracket sport fender, the Night Rod® Special comes on strong with an aggressive race-inspired, power-first front profile.

    Fastback Tail Section

    The Night Rod® Special model's tail delivers even more drag-strip performance and attitude. The chopped down and aggressively tapered fender shows off that fat rear tire, while the slimmed down center plate mount and flush-mounted the low-maintenance LED tail-lamp creates a streamlined impression that lasts.

    Cast Aluminum Performance Wheel

    When the rubber meets the road, it’s your wheels that make the difference. Inspired by performance sports car design, these split 5-spoke wheels flash heavy-weight attitude, but do it at a full 3 pounds lighter than earlier generation V-Rod® motorcycle wheels, which means you roll with tighter handling and smoother suspension response.

    Revolution® Engine Heritage

    From the Strip to the Street. Harley-Davidson has a passion for performance that is rooted in decades of racing and winning championships. So when The Motor Company set out to produce a high-powered, liquid-cooled engine, it began with the VR superbike engine. Its performance is inspired by American-style, big, powerful torque coupled with high-end horsepower. The Revolution® engine is the heart of a machine that attracts a breed of riders who are fascinated by the heritage and mystique of Harley-Davidson and the power of a high-end street performance motorcycle.

    Revolution® Engine Innovation

    Through a partnership with legendary automaker, Porsche, and their world-renowned team of engineers, Harley-Davidson created a revolutionary engine. The final result was something uniquely Harley-Davidson, the industry's most perfect blend of torque and horsepower in the high revving V-Twin Revolution® engine. Fuel injection. Dual overhead cams. Liquid cooled. horses. Massive, brute power behind pure Harley-Davidson innovation and style.

    Pure Harley-Davidson Styling

    Feast your eyes on the Revolution® engine and there's no mistaking its roots. This is authentic Harley-Davidson® style through and through with an attention to detail you won't find from any other motorcycle company. Deep black cylinders and rocker covers complete the dark look, while the machined cooling fin tips on the cylinder heads give it a stripped down, raw metal finish. It's a jewel machined out of metal. Pure. Dripping with power. From the classic edge of the cooling fins to the clean lines of cases and covers—the Revolution® engine makes an ironclad statement to holding on to what's right and staying true to what satisfies the rider.

    Custom Power and Performance

    Tuned to produce horsepower the cc Revolution® engine is Harley-Davidson's highest horsepower engine to this day. With dual overhead cams and four valves per cylinder, it provides 84 ft. lbs. of torque at rpm, while feeling refined and velvety smooth all the way up to the redline.

    High Marks for Durability

    The Harley-Davidson Revolution® engine is an extremely durable motorcycle engine. It survived the most brutal and aggressive durability test in the industry: the Dusseldorf Test. Simulating a grueling trip along Germany's notorious Autobahn, the engine endured a wide range of performance tests. From idle states to city speeds, to wide-open throttle and mountain climbing torque, the Revolution® engine surpassed the goal of hours of non-stop punishing performance.

    Hydroformed Frame

    Harley-Davidson's Chief Styling Officer Emeritus, Willie G. Davidson, asked for a frame so beautiful it could sit in a museum. And that's exactly what the Harley-Davidson team of engineers created. Using an innovative process called hydroforming, they were able to form unconventional angles and apply fewer welds by bending and shaping metal pipes with high-pressure water. The result: a sturdy chassis with improved rigidity. To date, The Motor Company is the only major motorcycle manufacturer to use hydroforming to construct frames.

    H-D® Smart Security System (Optional)

    The factory installed next-generation security system features a hands-free fob that automatically arms and disarms the vehicle electronic security functions as you approach and walk away from the bike. Stick the fob on your ignition key ring and let it do all the work. It's this attention to details and security that make Harley-Davidson® motorcycles unique. Offered as a part of the "Security Package" (which includes Anti-Lock Brakes).

    Artfully Hidden Technology

    Harley-Davidson leverages the latest in technology without compromising style and function. That means we hide electronics. The whole wiring harness is skillfully routed behind the jewels of the bike—the tank, engine and all the other eye-popping features you want to see. It's just another way The Motor Company goes the extra mile to give its bikes that premium, top-of-the-line fit and finish.

    Intuitive Controls

    Hand controls on a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle are incredibly intuitive. The turn signals are self-canceling and, based on the speed and angle of the motorcycle, they know how long to stay on. Engaging the controls quickly becomes second nature so you can focus less on turning off your signal and more on basking in the freedom of the ride.

    Brembo® Brakes with Optional ABS

    Increased confidence and control. High-performance Brembo® dual-disk brakes offer consistent stopping power on every leg of your journey. Plus, the optional Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) helps reduce the chance of wheel lock-up if you need to brake suddenly. And since we hid the speed sensor, the bike maintains its clean, slick look. Performance without sacrificing style. That's what The Motor Company is all about. The Anti-Lock Brakes are offered as a part of the "Security Package" (which includes the H-D® Smart Security System).

    "Slipper" Clutch

    Taken from the racetrack to the world of custom. The Night Rod® Special motorcycle features a "slipper," (or "slip and assist") clutch that provides smoother, high-power handling in turns or whenever you downshift. By reducing clutch friction, the slipper clutch helps keep your rear wheel at a controlled clip.

    Michelin® Scorcher™ Tires

    The Michelin® Scorcher™ tires provide the superior performance, sensational grip, impressive durability and excellent handling expected on a race-bred bike. The exclusive deep-cut tread design improves grip and water evacuation capability. Grip performance and durability is also enhanced by the tire's rubber compounds, which use the latest generation of Michelin synthetic polymers. Under the rear rubber, aramid belts are used to stabilize your ride, which helps inspire confidence in handling.

    Inverted Forks

    Grab on and feel the total command delivered by this precision-engineered front end assembly. The performance-tuned front end assembly features inverted forks and a low-angle rake that keep the Night Rod® Special's unsprung mass low and its turning tight, for a nimble and responsive ride at every speed.

    Tuned to Be Ridden

    Harley-Davidson® motorcycles are different from any other bike out on the road. There's a balance to them. The steering, the maneuverability—it's all in concert. And each Harley-Davidson® model is tuned differently to create a unique riding experience for each individual no matter which bike they swing their leg over. Let's face it, we didn't get to where we are by being like everyone else.

    Enhanced Ergonomic Controls

    Confidence is critical when you're performance riding. That's why we designed the Night Rod® Special model's control placement for comfortable access that doesn't compromise its aggressive stance. The handlebars and rider foot pegs are placed so you ride low and mean, but with the controls close and comfortably in reach.

    Two-up Bucket Saddle

    Settle in and experience the confident connection you get from the deep rider bucket. We designed it to hold you close, low ( inches) and in control, even when you throttle up fast. Just like all Harley-Davidson® seats, it's built with the premium material, custom stitching and the attention to detail that mark the work of motorcycle makers who’ve been putting their own seats in the saddle for over a hundred years.

    Seat Engineering and Design

    The seat is home for Harley-Davidson® motorcycle riders. They want a seat that has unique style without sacrificing comfort. Because of that, Harley-Davidson invests a lot of time in researching, designing and testing seats so that every bike has just the right saddle. 

    The Night Rod® Special features a tapered tail section, lighter-weight wheels, and improved ergonomics with reduced reach to both the rider footpegs and handlebar. Inverted front forks and retuned rear suspension enhance ride and handling. This is a blacked-out, dark and sinister power cruiser that’s at home in a back alley.
