The brace aids in removing a twisting action that can happen between the wheel axle and the triple clamp. For example, if you have small diameter forks and you stand in front of the bike, face the handlebars, hold the front wheel between your knees and grab the handlebars and turn the bars in one direction while holding the front wheel in the other direction and you will feel the twist (flex) in the fork legs. The vrod has large diameter forks so the twisting action should be very minimal.

This is why Motocross bikes use upsidedown(inverted) forks...to minimize this twisting action.
