kwayne, you are right about this particualr "V rod." It has as much in common with the stocker as my family grocery getter has in common with a nitrous burning funny car. VWW

The same could be said for the "Suzukis" and "Kawasakis" that own the class. They use very few stock parts; certainly not the cases and cylinder blocks.

V-Rod... $18K

Road Star Warrior: $12K



Hard to argue with that. And for the price of the V-Rod you can have a Stage IV Warrior, or buy 2 VMax's.

V-Rod in 5 years 18K

Road Star Warrior in 5 years 6K



Hard to argue with that.

I wouldn't count on it. I can buy a V-Rod now for $16.5K new.

And I could have bought a Superglide in 1976 for $3500. So what's mine worth now?

Big deal, the NHRA rules give the HD a 50 pound weight advantage and the Suzuki is limited to 87 cubic inches whereas the HD is allowed 160 cubic inches.

And STILL the Suzuki packs sand up the HDs

behind...

If they change the rules to prohibit the Suzuki from carrying fuel, the HD may have a chance.

Most likely, it will be as remarkably successful as the HD Superbike effort was.
