The Harley-Davidson Night Rod is arguably the best compromise of laid back comfort/style and tarmac carving effectiveness, of any Harley yet. Semi-laid back riding position and highway pegs (there are rear-sets, too) deliver cruising comfort, decent, adjustable suspension and brakes go some way to overcome the motorcycle’s bulk and deliver fun.

Like before with earlier V-Rod’s, the Harley-Davidson Night Rod is a modern Harley so you can’t really go wrong. Build quality includes the thickest paint and chrome in motorcycling, engineering is by Porsche but on the conservative side. The Harley-Davidson Night Rod is definitely reliable.
The Harley-Davidson Night Rod's whopping great initial purchase price shock is counteracted by incomparable residuals, healthy reliability and priceless (well, it is to some) ‘lifestyle’ buying a Harley brings. Whether all that’s worth it, is up to you. Find a Harley-Davidson Night Rod for sale.
