Some, not all, European markets received 105 horsepower bikes. The difference is velocity stack diameter and mapping.

Most riders take the stock exhausts off their bikes and replace them with something louder. This provides many opportunities to buy clean used stock exhaust system parts very inexpensively. Keep an eye on the classified ads on this discussion board, and start looking for sources of used parts in Europe. Get the word out what you are looking for by using the want ads part of our classfieds. I have purchased complete R exhaust systems for as little as $300, less than the list cost of a single muffler. I just bought a third volume for $60. They list for over $450. I have spares in case I screw up and bin it.

Btw, the R is easily the best V-Rod, and a darn good bike by any standard. If you ever see one of these engine's apart you will be impressed. Car parts. Big, durable car parts. It looks like a well made Toyota engine inside. Nothing cheap or flimsy, it's built to last.

This is depressing. How do I tell which one I have? UK.

Never heard of that before, and I've successfully privately imported a US model to the EU - both have the exact same ratings and specs.
Care to share any references to back that up?

Thanks,

Sure, no problemo.
See line item 27, AUXILIARY VOLUME, from P. 109 of the '07 Parts Manual.

(Dang scan doesn't want to upload - maybe editing it in will work.)
(CHROME may not get you home but sometimes it'll upload when Firefox balks. )

Mine is '06, could that have been changed in the '07 models? Can't believe they'd reduce over 20HP just for regulations...

Page 22 in my '06 owner's manual.

It lists the possible values for each position in the bike's VIN.

This post also gives the details:

I have almost 26,000 miles on my '06 R. The only thing I've replaced due to part failure is the rear brake switch assembly. It's plastic and sits very close to an exhaust pipe. The plastic finally fell apart and leaked. I did the valve lash adjustment at 22,000 miles. I'm on my third set of tires (Avon Cobras are GREAT!). I still have the original battery. The motor fires right up every time. Many R's have the front end "clunk" because of loose seating of the stearing head bearings. Do the fallaway adjustment to clear that up.

The R has the most lean angle of the VRSC line. That might come in handy with your roads in Italy!

Good luck with your decision!

Hey man,

I just read your review of the "r". I just got my R and went for my first real ride. Like you stated, I heard the front clunk. Thanks for pointing it out. Now I know what to look for, so I can fix it.
