Bike of the Day: Harley-Davidson V-Rod

Published: 30 April 2018

Why it’s MCN’s pick:

Even if you aren’t a fan of Harley-Davidson’s range of cruisers, you can’t fail to be impressed by the V-Rod. When this muscle cruiser arrived in 2001, powered by a water-cooled engine no less, it was like a bolt from the blue.

Developed with the help of Porsche, the V-Rod’s 1131cc V-twin made an impressive 115bhp with a healthy 77ftlb of torque, so this was far from just some Harley show pony. And it handled too, far better than most expected, and even stopped thanks to its twin disc set-up. But, it has to be said, the V-Rod’s styling will always be its main selling point as it does look fantastic…

TOP STORIES

Early V-Rod models arrived in a stunning brushed aluminium finish which when combined with the solid wheels and twin stacked pipes made the bike look amazing. These are still (arguably) the best looking of all the V-Rod’s many incarnations and with the V-Rod now discontinued from Harley’s range, you have to be thinking of early generations as potential future investments.

 

Seller says:

“A 100th Anniversary V-Rod in brushed aluminium that has only covered 1106 miles with its two previous owners. Fitted with a set of Screaming Eagle slip-on exhausts, passenger backrest and detachable screen.”
