I dig it. I've always been a Vrod fan but never owned one. I'm sure there are spectacular deals to be had on used ones these days.

Another Harley with a "proper motor" that doesn't sell well. I know, "put it in a sport-tourer and I'd buy it."

Ducati can't even sell S/T bikes anymore.

I wonder how it would sell if it looked exactly like a classic HD cruiser?

I think that's impossible. Not too many classic H-D cruisers with a radiator, giant airbox and huge mufflers.

Even though it's not my kind of ride - I find it somewhat pleasing to the eye - moreso than the previous V-Rods.

However, the name is still appallingly hideous.

So, which muscle do you think HD is referring to? There are so many opportunites for jokes here that one doesn't know where to begin.

I guess it's better than calling it the VSRC Rubbie.

Gluteus Maximus.

That, or Table Muscle - the so-called "Toolshed" most of this bike's target-clientele are busy "building up".

Cooked legs are acceptable on an old Husky Desert Master, or my DT2 with the TT pipe. But on an '08 street bike that costs big $$$, a Harley fer chrissakes, that's unacceptable.

Default I've seen that rear fender / light set-up before...

...on the Yamaha Warrior.

Which is interesting because the V-rod had so many things in common with the V-Max. Except the V-Max did it all in 1985.
