• 2006 Harley-Davidson VRSCD Night Rod


The menacing presence of the new VRSCD Night Rod will cause a stir on the boulevard. This new model combines a raked-out, 36 degree fork angle with mid-mount controls for more aggressive cruising. Seat height is a low 26 inches. The highway pegs are standard for more relaxed riding. The Night Rod takes its styling cues right off the drag strip, with a color-matched speed screen visor, a black frame and blacked-out mirrors and controls, and chrome straight- shot dual exhaust pipes. The Revolution V-Twin engine is finished in black powdercoat with highlighted fins and polished covers. Slotted Machined Cast Aluminum disc wheels come standard, or order the optional black Staggered 10-spoke Cast Aluminum wheels for a more aggressive look. The Night Rod can be ordered with optional chrome engine covers and an optional security system. Eight color choices include new Black Denim, a flat-black finish.

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.

I just traded mine in. I lost 7 grand on it but I just wanted it gone. oil consumption is a big issue with some of these and harley pretends not to know. watch your oil level careful and I hope you get one that does not have this issue. im sure its only one out of a hundred that has the issue but I wasnt lucky this time.

I just purchase my 06 NightRod last Friday and the more I ride it, the more impressed I am. I finished 6 hours of riding today and the bike is outstanding. From blasting down the freeway to highways to twisties, it is very impressive. Loads of torque and HP. Sure it isn’t a rice burner, its a Hog! It sounds like a hot rod and crowds gather when I stop and push out the jiffy stand. I am totally impressed and have no regrets buying this bike.

"Typical Harley...All show and No Go!"...Two words: Ride one. You have obviously never been near a V-Rod. They are not noisy. In fact stock V-Rods sound a lot like a metric bike (a complaint for some V-Rod owners)...For sureshot, the problem with racing a V-Rod and a high-performance metric is not power and speed, it’s handling. The V-Rod is low and raked out, making it less nimble than your bike. It’s also less aerodynamic which is a factor at high speeds. That said, I have an ’06 NightRod and it’s the most "fun to ride" bike I’ve ever been on. Throttle response is awesome, torque is amazing, and the curb-appeal is true H-D.

. I think they are a fine bike.
I wouldnt mind getting one but I am too tall.
The thing is they have power,but as my neighbor,found out with his. Dont race with it.
He thought he would lite me up. I hAve a Concour
Kaw 1000 6 speed. He had to buy the beer that night. The VRod is a fine looking bike and rides well.
Like all H.D they are best looking bikes on the road.
But the Vrods need to stay away from the Rice Burners. EVEN the 600 ,s. Ninja 636. I do think for the money they are good buy. Power,looks that kill.
I just dont know how they will hold up after 35,000 miles. I hope they do.
My poor nieghbor wants to race my Kids Bike.
KAW 636 NINJA. lol.
They do kill the other V twins. 1500kaws ,1800hondas.
Buy far I think there the Coolest looking bike on the road,and are Fast,and blow the other V TWINs in the dust. Good price .....Good looks, YEAH THERE HOT.
