The V-Rod was a major departure from Harley Davidson's line-up that left many traditionalists with a puzzled reaction. This bike looked nothing like anything H-D had ever produced but quickly became a favorite for many after hearing the rattle and unmistakable hum of this all-American beast. It's a zero-fat, lean-muscle, long-and-strong animal, not your grand daddy's iron horse. Engineered and designed with the help of Porsche, this bike appeals to the outlaw in all of us. Hopping on, you feel stretched out, if not hunched over. Get it on the road and your form catches up quickly with its deft maneuvering and aggressive engineering. Make no mistake, the V-Rod lets you know it still has the heart and soul of a Harley when you crack that throttle, so hold fast and ride hard.
