The V-Rod family will grow in 2007 with two menacing new models, 18.9 litre fuel tanks across the range, and a wide 240mm rear tyre on three bikes.

The first new bike is the VRSCDX Night Rod Special, with an all-black finished 1130cc Revolution engine making 121hp and 108Nm of torque, delivered by the 240mm rear tyre.

Everything is black, with the frame, forks, triple clamps, swing arm and black machined slotted disc wheels. And the colour-matched headlight nacelle, dual exhaust with black end caps and exhaust shields, and black-on-black racing stripe paint scheme get even more Spinal Tap. It comes in two colourschemes, with Black Denim, with Vivid Black race stripe, or Vivid Black, with Black Denim race stripe.

It's also got electronic fuel injection, a low 640mm seat height, lowered rear suspension, and the new Harley-Davidson Smart Security System.

The second addition is the limited-edition VRSC, which honours the Sreamin' Eagle/Vance & Hines NHRA drag team with a 1250cc Screamin' Eagle motor with big-bore cylinders and ported heads. It produces 123hp, and 116Nm of torque to the 240mm rear tyre.

It also gets drag bars, forward controls, a brushed profile laced front wheel, drag flyscreen, and unqie paint and decals with a redesigned version of the "Number 1" logo, plus the 18.9 litre fuel tank. But you'll have to get orders in quick with just 400 units destined for Europe.

The rest of the V-Rod range starts with the VRSCAW, with a wider style and the 240mm rear rubber. It's got a 36 degree fork angle, forward controls, pull-back handelbars, drag-style slotted wheels and a curvaceous exhaust system.

The seat is just 660mm from the ground, with the 1130cc Revolution motor, 18.9 litre fuel tank, and a choice of nine colour options.

That contrasts with the three colours of the VRSCD Night Rod, available in Black, Yellow or new Pacific Blue Pearl. It's got mid-mount foot controls, the raked-out 36 degree fork angle, chrome exhausts and the same larger fuel tank.

Finally the VRSCR Street Rod continues with mid-mount controls and 40 degree forward lean for the rider, but it gets a wider and higher set of handlebars for better control and an ergonomically enhanced rear brake lever for stopping.

The Street Rod gets more aggressive with a 32 degree fork angle and shorter 1700mm wheelbase. It also gets five solid colours, including the new Pacific Blue Denim and Pewter Denium, and more options for customisation.
