“brings urban energy to the VRSC power cruiser platform” -- wtf does that mean? urban energy?

the tail looks boxy. apart from that it doesn't look significantly different from any of the other v-rods (and certainly doesn't look any better). I still think the original incarnation looks best (apart from the goofy looking exhaust).

It means they are running out of angles to drum up sales for the V-Rod. Next years marketing copy will read:

"...Brings Amish qualities to the VRSC power cruiser platform."

Will that be the model with the fine wooden cabinetry and wagon-spoke wheels?

Where's the Trike?
Calling it "Muscle" at 127 hp when it's competing with Yamaha's 197 hp VMax II is a bit of a stretch.

Well it's more of a tricep compared to a quadricep.

My thoughts exactly. They should have painted it pink and named it Pee Wee Herman's Power Cruiser. Would have been a big hit in San Fransico's alternative lifestyle market.
