since most V-Rods will never see speeds in excess of 149mph for any extended period of time...will it really provide any kind of real world advantage
Of all the parts of a motorcycle you could save money on, I'd put tires as dead last.

The "Z" rating means that the tires have been designed and tested so as not to disintegrate when run at high speeds for extended periods. In order to pass this test, the carcass and tread have been designed to be strong enough to withstand the greater stresses such high-speed operation creates. This added strength is there to prevent tire blowout or failure at all speeds - making you much safer. "Z" rated tires are also absolutely superior in terms of performance than a lower rated model.
