About Harley Davidson V Rod
The Harley-Davidson V-Rod was first launched in 2009. When launched, the motorcycle was considered quite an important model as it featured a liquid-cooled engine instead of the typical air-cooled engines that were used in all others Harleys during the time.
Designed to make an imposing presence but with modern looks and respectable performance, this bike is stands out in the classis Harley line up. It gets a fastback style tail section, a fat rear tyre , low-rise handle bar, double-barrel exhaust and a blacked out look overall.
Power comes courtesy the 1250cc V-Twin engine which puts out around 120bhp and 111Nm of torque, giving the rider plenty of grunt on the road. Weighing nearly 300 kilograms, the V-Rod is quite hefty for its size although Harley-Davidson promises stable and reassuring handling thanks to the log wheelbase and fat rubber tyres both at front and the rear.
The V-Rod competes against the recently introduced Triumph Thunderbird Storm and the Rocket 3 Roadster.
