Does H-D let Beavis and Butthead come up with names for the Vrod line?

Where's the Trike?

Something just looks odd about the Muscle's tail section. Like the front. But just d@mn.

I like the v-rod line, but I find it funny how they keep coming up with variations of the same bike in the hopes that it catches on.

Ok everyone, here's the V-Rod! No? Ok, how about the Street Rod? No? Ok, how about the Night Rod? No? Um...here's the V-Rod Muscle? Anyone?

As long as the word Love doesn't precede it I think you're good.

So for the muscle they rivited on some sheet metal over the airbox cover and changed the pipes and rear fender. Just looks like an uglier vrod. Dont see the point, that and your riding a Muscle... Sounds like what a new fish does in prison...

Actually, I think it looks pretty good (from the side view, anyway).

TERRIBLE choice of name, though.

I saw my first Sportster dark, the one with the shortened tail section. Some guy was riding one by me yesterday. I was impressed with how much it looks like an old oil soaked rat bike out of the box.

Maybe if they put the VRSC motor into something that actually DID something like tour or go fast, they'd get more interest from the non-delta-minus types. Otherwise, it's just another crooozer and the H-D faithful gotta have their 1940's core tech. Get a Kawahondazuki if one wants a water head crooozer.
