MCN (motor cycle news) the UK's weekly bike paper has done a 0-60mph shootout which included the V-Rod.
They got 3.67secs. with 0-100 in 8.82secs. The winner was the Hayabusa at 2.80s to 60mph and 5.47s to 100mph.
Braking distances from 90mph were also tested and the V-rod came last (of 11) but was only 2 metres behind the R6. so it can't be too bad when you consider the weight differance

They reckon the Rod was hard to launch due to rear wheel spin.

The paper had an official HD V-Rod advert claiming 3.4secs to 60mph in the same issue.
