2012 Harley-Davidson 10th Anniversary Edition V-Rod Review


I distinctly recall the first time I saw Harley-Davidson's V-Rod. With its long, low and slender profile, slivery paint from tip to tail and an eye-catching aluminum solid front wheel it was hard to miss, even in a crowded parking lot.

It seems like only a couple years ago I first gazed upon this Harley, but folks, the reality is that 10 years have passed since the tradition-busting V-Rod first rolled into the Harley lineup. Ten years! To mark the 'Rod's notable birthday Harley has created a 10th Anniversary Edition V-Rod as part of the company's 2012 model lineup. The 10th joins the Night Rod Special and Muscle, making the VRSC series a family of three for this year.

Much like the 2002 V-Rod, the anniversary edition is also gleaming with a sliver color job in homage to the original. More than just sentimental paint, however, the 10th Anniversary model receives some worthwhile updates aimed at improving rider comfort and handling.

Quite interesting. The early anodised bikes look fine, but brakes aren't quite up to scratch. Start saving, I suppose.

Loving mine!

After owning an "03 VRSCA, the change to the '12 DX was pretty awesome. The change in rake, inverted forks, improvements to the brakes and ergo all add up to a really nice smooth ride.
