What it has always been is a sleek, fast machine with a big hunger for straightaway acceleration. The reason is easy to see. It’s right there at the center. A liquid-cooled, fuel-injected 60° V-Twin Revolution® powertrain. Dual overhead cams. Four-valve heads. Two aggressive-breathing velocity stacks housed in a massive air box. Wind the engine up to the redline and make short work of the next quarter mile and beyond. The rigid, hydro-formed frame puts all that power to thrilling use. We wanted stopping to be equally exhilarating as going. All VRSC bikes are now fitted with performance 4-piston caliper Brembo® brakes. With all these goodies to play with, we took the most award-winning Harley-Davidson® motorcycle down some new roads. No matter how you like to ride, with the additions of the Night Rod™ and Street Rod™ models, now there’s a VRSC bike that fits your style. But that’s not all that’s new for 2006. There’s also a 240mm rear tire kit available in late 2005 through Genuine Motor Parts and Accessories. Scorching asphalt has never been so much fun.
If you like lean, low and raw, there’s plenty here. This new hot rod-inspired motorcycle is built around the big power of the Revolution® engine. Mid-mount controls. Straight-shot mufflers. Low-rise bars. What better way to put 120 horses through the paces. New seat. Highway pegs. Long hauls feel more like quick jaunts. Check out the Black Denim paint option. Color-matched speed screen visor. Blacked-out engine. Or the beautiful black and chrome engine covers option you see here. Brembo® brakes. New Slotted Aluminum Disc wheels or a Black Staggered 10-Spoke wheel option. A 180mm rear tire grounds the look. It’d be a sin to leave this much rubber standing still.
