2006 Harley-Davidson VRSCA V Rod

The VRSCA V-Rod redefined the power-cruiser category, offering an award-winning marriage of custom styling and liquid-cooled performance. Raked way out there, with a 38-degree fork angle, forward controls and pull back welded handlebars, drag-style aluminum disc wheels and chrome slash-cut exhaust, the V-Rod is one unmistakable motorcycle. The scooped-out seat is just 26 inches off the ground. Dual slash-cut chrome exhaust pipes deliver the wound-out song of a high-performance Revolution V-Twin. Triple-disc, four-piston Brembo brakes and black hand controls are new for 2006. Staggered 10-Spoke Cast Aluminum wheels are an option. A security system is standard. Choose from 13 color options plus the deep silver Anodized Aluminum finish that made V-Rod famous.

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.

The original VRSCA V-Rod® has caused more than its fair share of jaws to drop. Just try to peel your eyes off the aluminum bodywork, sweeping exhaust, and Machined Aluminum Disc wheels now fitted with high performance Brembo® brakes. Check out the dragster-style 49mm 38° raked fork. 180mm rear tire. Silver-leaf-coated hydroformed frame. And though there’s a spectrum of glittering paint colors, all anyone may ever see is a shiny blur. That’s because the liquid-cooled, fuel-injected 60° V-Twin Revolution® engine supplies a full 115 horses and torque from here to eternity. All that’s left is to get your boots out to the forward foot controls and enjoy the cruise

This site says top speed for the vrod is around 116 mph, I just had mine on a closed road and went 133 mph and it still had more. I’ve got a 02 vrod, stock other than some samson pipes.
