Harley-Davidson has just presented the 2009 models and some have already started interest. For example, the Muscle V-Rod version is a motorcycle powered by a 1250cc engine developing 122 hp @ 8500 rpm. It didn’t ended up in the line-up with no purpose, all the contrary. It is suppose to keep Harley fans on the American motorcycle now that Yamaha has launched the V-Max and its 200 horsepower look threatening.
Highly refined, the Muscle V-Rod features Brembo brakes, aluminum handlebars and led taillight and indicators. Colors available for it are Vivid Black, Brilliant Silver, Blue Denim and Red Sunglow
A great 2009 addition is the first official Harley-Davidson trike. Based on the Ultra Glide Classic, the machine is suppose to cover up this market section that Harley and the other makers seem to have missed for so long.
Apart from that, the Touring models are getting new chassis and wheels as well as Brembo brakes and a new tank. Everything is designed to add comfort for the long haul where these babies are heading.
