Like a bat out of hell!
By Eric Bolden(Owner), Jan. 14, 2009
I purchased my Night Rod in June of 06. I have logged 21000 hard miles with some drag racing included. This bike accelerates like electricity but it's not great in corners. This is truly a straight line bike but it does have drawbacks. One being the horrible fuel mileage, my Scion does better than t... Read Full Review

good bike
By frank(Owner), Sep. 16, 2008
To give you a background. I also own a 05 Duc 999 and 02 H-D 883R. I've owned 16 bikes through the years.

I'll start with the motor.

It winds up fast, is quite strong for the rated horsepower and have not had any problems since day one.

Suspension: Front suspension feels loose and flops ov... Read Full Review

Night Rod
By Troy(Owner), Oct. 11, 2008
This is a very capable bike. The Revulution engine has plenty of power and torque. The ride is a bit harsh but with a little work this is a great bike. I changed to foreward controlls and a Sun Downer seat, and the bike fits like a glove. The only other drawback is the 3 1/2 gallon gas tank. Read Full Review

@006 VRSCD Night Rod
By Yarvis Torres(Owner), Sep. 29, 2008
I have owned this very capable bike since the summer of 2005. I bought it as a 40th birthday gift for myself as I already owned a 2001 BMW R1200c cruiser and I traded in a paid for 2001 Triumph Adventurer for the HD.I love the power of the HD. It always amazes me how fast and sporty this bike is. It... Read Full Review

Very Satisfied
By matt(Owner), Nov. 30, 2011
I only have logged about 1000miles on my night rod. My last bike was a Kawi MeanStreak 1500 and the night rod beats it just about everyway. The only thing i do miss from my Kawi was the size of the tank. The VRSC models might not be the fastest cruiser motorcycle out there but it sure does the tr... Read Full Review
