New 2012 Harley V-Rod Brithday 10th

New 2012 Harley V-Rod Brithday 10th Ten years already that Harley-Davidson launched the original liquid-cooled Revolution engine in a brand new styling called the V-Rod. The V-Rod 10th Anniversary Edition is a tribute to the original 2002 V-Rod, the motorcycle that introduced brilliant silver pearl bodywork with color-matched frame. The 2012 anniversary model retains the evocation of anodized aluminum bodywork featured on the original V-Rod. Extra chrome and polished surfaces dazzle on the engine, exhaust and speed screen.

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.

The Night Rod special updates for 2012 include ABS as standard, Brembo double disc brakes, upside forks with new hydraulic system, and a classic double rear shock. The look is dominated by the Michelin Scorcher tyres, and new alloy wheels save 1.4 kg - off the overall weight of 289 kg. A narrow rear light is part of the style and a new inclusion upfront is the smaller front mudguard, but otherwise it’s the same old Rod.
