VRSC Models

VRSCA V-Rod
Model Years: 2002–2006. This was the original V-Rod. For the first year of production it was only available anodized aluminum. In 2003 anodized aluminum and the silver/black 100th anniversary paint scheme was offered. Different colored paint schemes became available for the 2004 year model. The First V-Rod was equipped the 1,130 cc (69 cu in) Revolution Engine, producing a claimed 115 hp (86 kW) at the crank. The V-Rod featured 49 mm forks and a 180 mm rear tire, with solid disc wheels. The VRSCAs were all factory equipped with 3.7 US gallons (14 l) gas tanks. In 2006 the VRSCA was equipped with Brembo Brakes. The VRSCA was only offered with forward controls.
VRSCAW V-Rod
2008 105th Anniversary Edition VRSCAW V-Rod.
Model Years: 2007–2010. The VRSCAW V-Rod is the successor to the VRSCA. First Produced in 2007, it is essentially a VRSCA with a new frame to accommodate the 240 mm rear tire and five gallon gas tank that came standard. The aluminum bodywork of the VRSCA only made it onto a few early-production VRSCAW models, but was quickly dropped. With these changes the VRSCAW a claimed 37 lb (17 kg) heavier than its predecessor. For the first production year the power-plant remained an unchanged 1,130 cc (69 cu in) Revolution engine. The VRSCAW is only offered with forward controls. The combination of increased weight, and a 240 mm rear tire with no power increase made the 2007 VRSCAW the slowest production VSRC produced
In 2008 the VRSCAW V-Rod's Revolution was boosted from 1130 cc to 1,250 cc (76 cu in), producing a claimed 84 ft·lbf (114 N·m) @ 7,000 rpm, and peak power of 123 hp (92 kW) at the crank, a slipper-clutch was also added, as was an ABS option. For the 2009 model year the VRSCAW replaced the VRSCD, which was dropped from the line, as the "base model" for the VRSC family, as such the MSRP was dropped almost US$2,000 to $14,999.

VRSCB V-Rod
Model Years: 2004–2005. The VRSCB V-Rod had limited two year run. It was mechanically identical to the VRSCA, the cosmetic differences included a black frame, polished aluminum and black powder-coated engine, and a slightly different clamshell, instrument housing and handlebars. The VRSCB was only offered with forward controls.

VRSCD Night Rod.
[edit]VRSCD Night Rod
Model Years: 2006–2008. The Night Rod was introduced in 2006 as the “new hot rod-inspired motorcycle” built around the Revolution engine. The Night Rod featured Mid-mount controls, supplemented by highway-pegs. Straight-shot mufflers, helping the Revolution Engine to produce a claimed 120 hp (89 kW) at the crank. The Night Rod featured a black frame, black and chrome engine, Brembo Brakes, slotted aluminum disk wheels, and a color-matched fairing.
In 2008 the VRSCD Night Rod's Revolution was boosted from 1,130 cc (69 cu in) to 1,250 cc (76 cu in), producing a claimed 85 ft·lbf (115 N·m) @ 7,000 rpm, and peak power of 125 hp (93 kW) at the crank, a slipper-clutch was also added, as was an ABS option. For the 2008 model year, the VRSCD was the only remaining VRSC model to still feature a 180 mm rear tire or mid-pegs. 2008 would also be the final year of production for the VRSCD Night Rod.

VRSCDX Night Rod Special
Model Years: 2007–Present. The VRSCDX is marketed as the factory made custom version of the standard Night Rod and is also part of Harley-Davidson's "Dark Custom" series. In addition to a 240 mm wide rear tire, most of the chrome components of the VRSCD were replaced with black. The wheels were replaced by black slotted disk wheels, with dark orange pin striping. The Straight shot dual exhaust produced a claimed 120 hp (89 kW) at the crank. A 5 gallon tank was standard. The DX also features prominent racing stripes. In 2008 the VRSCDX Night Rod Special's Revolution was boosted from 1,130 cc (69 cu in) to 1,250 cc (76 cu in), producing claimed torque of 85 ft·lbf (115 N·m) @ 7,000 rpm, and peak power of 125 hp (93 kW) at the crank, a slipper-clutch was also added, as was an ABS option.

VRSCF V-Rod Muscle
Model Years: 2009–Present. The V-Rod Muscle was introduced in the summer of 2008 at the Harley-Davidson dealer show in Las Vegas for the 2009 production model year. In promoting the Muscle, Harley partnered with American fashion model Marisa Miller for an advertising campaign aimed at younger, urbane riders.[1] It would be one of only three VRSC models for 2009. Like the other two models, the Muscle features the 1,250 cc (76 cu in) Revolution Engine, a 240 mm wide rear tire, 5 US gallons (19 l; 4.2 imp gal) fuel tank, slipper clutch and forward controls. Departing from the other models in the VRSC lineup, the Muscle features straight shot dual exhausts, with a crossover, one on each side of the bike. This is a significant stylistic departure from the 2>1>2 exhaust found on all other VRSC models. Additionally, the Muscle features a unique air-box with mock-up air-rams like those found on many American pony and muscle cars. Early rumors around the VRSCF speculated that the F might stand for Forced Induction, however, in the production version of the bike the air-rams are purely cosmetic. There is no official word from Harley-Davidson as to what, if anything, the F in the VRSCF designation stands stands for. The VRSCF also features a chopped rear fender with integrated turn signals, and a side mounted license plate. As well as turn signals integrated into the rear-view mirrors; a first as a stock feature on a Harley-Davidson motorcycle. The VRSCF puts out at the crank a claimed 86 ft·lbf (117 N·m) of torque at 6,500 rpm, which is slightly more torque than the other VRSC models, at a slightly lower engine speeds. Claimed peak crank horsepower is down slightly from the Night Rod Special, at 122 hp (91 kW) at 500 rpm lower engine speed.

VRSCSE: Screamin' Eagle CVO V-Rod
Model Years: 2005. In 2005 Harley Davidson's Custom Vehicle Operations produced their first V-Rod. The dimensions were identical to the VRSCA at the time, but the VRSCSE featured extra chrome, custom paint, and not the typical "clamshell" found on other VRSC models. Mechanically the VRSCSE was boosted by a 1,250 cc Revolution Engine, with CNC ported heads.
[edit]VRSCSE2: Screamin' Eagle CVO V-Rod
Model Years: 2006. The VRSCSE2 was the first V-Rod or VRSC model to feature a 240 mm rear tire. It also featured the Screamin' Eagle 1,250 cc Revolution Engine.

VRSCR: Street Rod
Model Years: 2006–2007. The Street Rod was marketed as the “roadster-inspired” member of the VRSC line. The Street Rod was the first VRSC to ever feature inverted forks and a steep rake. It also featured the highest seat height at 30 inches (76 cm) of any VRSC model. The Street Rod also claimed the greatest lean angle at 40°, over the 32° lean of the other VRSC models. The Street Rod came equipped solely with mid-mounted controls. The Street Rod would be the first to feature the 5 gallon tank in the 2006 year model, that would become standard for the line in 2007.

VRSCX: V-Rod
Model Years: 2007. Harley Davidson put out the VRSCX as a Screamin' Eagle Tribute bike in honor of the Harley V-Rod's second consecutive NHRA Championship. The VRSCX had the same dimensions as the 2007 VRSCAW, featuring the 240 mm rear tire, 5 gallon gas tank, and forward controls. However, the VRSCX also featured a tribute paint job reminiscent of the pro stock V-Rod, a smoked drag-visor windshield, as well as the 1,250 cc Screamin' Eagle Revolution Engine.

A vrod will not put 140 hp to the rear wheel without some help from a turbo, supercharger, or nitrous. True dual exhaust may sound good, but it robs a couple of horses from stock. A typical stock 1130cc vrod should put around 108 hp to the rear wheel.

It basically looks like a low mileage vrod. Those can be found pretty easily.

btw, welcome to the forum. What part of ATL are you in? There are a few of us out on the Douglasville side of town.

Can you explain why you would not buy anything from him?
Probably because he's either lying about the HP # which makes him a liar about anything else or he's just stupid. Either are bad qualities in a seller.

That's exactly it. Either he is right out Lying about everything with a ridiculous statement such as what he posted or HE is Stupid enough to believe whomever told him these "Facts" and the Bike has than been in the hands of a dummy for many years and 6500 miles. HD serviced means nothing in the VRSC world. Most HD service areas Fail miserably when it comes to working on the bike and if it only has 6500 miles What "Services" is He talking about anyways? Oil change? When where these pipes introduced to the bike and how many miles on it and what tuner installed and by whom? My question would be:
1) How are you coming to this HP number?
2) Why is there only 6500 miles on a now almost 7 year old bike and where and how was it stored?
3) and although its not a Big Deal I would ask "What do you mean to the Rear Wheels", its a MC.
Sounds to me this Ad was put together by someone who either just came into owning the bike (maybe repossessed or a death or divorce etc..) and knows little to nothing about it or just an out right liar.
if its close to you and the price is reasonable and you know a lot about the bike (or have someone go with you who is) I would find this to be a Bad purchase. only thing missing is the "Like New" statement.
How much is He asking for this vehicle?

Or it could come down to this perso doesn't speak english very well.

I think the comment claiming the 07 AW as being the slowest is incorrect. The 07 DX had the same engine but was 6 pounds heavier unless my information is incorrect.

Not true by any means....


But for the one in this particular add you are def right. With only the exhaust done it's probably closer to 105 at the wheel since it's a 1130..

Thanks for the comments even though they are a little conflicting.
I agree that the person might have believed what he was told, as he also stated that he bought a new bike has not rode it in a while.
its priced at $8750. thats a good price even if he's dump right?

An '04 should never go for more than $5000 -$5500 in my book, Old out of date technology. If He is trying to pull the "Rare Paint Scheme " crap and other HD seller ploys I would leave it be. Offer him $4500 and see what He comes back with.

I paid $8700 for an 06 with an aftermarket custom paint (partially, tank, rear fender), tons of added chrome, extra set of pipes, spare parts and cover with 1,973 miles. Bike was serviced at HD basically a once over with an oil change. Some of the 04s I looked at with low mileage were around $7,000 with around the same miles as the one you are looking at. Some were less, some more depending upon equipment (after market pipes,etc). Great bike though. Have fun.

You should go look at it and negotiate. It doesn't sound bad. Do tell him the for 8750 + 6000 you can get a brand new 2011 DX, instead of an 04.
