Harley’s cruiser V-Rod has been about since 2001, and the new Muscle is… is just another styling exercise to bolster what is arguably a tired range. The Muscle is essentially a reworked V-Rod with design touches (muscular, flowing lines) to front it up as a serious boulevard traffic light blaster. Except it isn’t that muscular – 12.25sec standing quarters anyone?
Harley-Davidson V-Rod 10th Anniversary edition
Harley-Davidson’s V-Rod range was 10-years-old in 2012 and to celebrate this milestone Harley reintroduced the Brilliant Silver Pearl colour first seen on the orginal V-Rod in 2002. This limited edition bike also carried the ‘10’ year logo on its engine cases as per all 2012 models of V-Rod (Night- Rod Special and Muscle).
The price when new was £14,999.
