2013 Harley-Davidson VRSCF V-Rod Muscle Features and Benefits

Dual Exhaust with Satin Chrome Finish

The V-Rod Muscle® motorcycle proves that a performance exhaust can still be a beautiful set of pipes. Satin chrome, dual side exhaust with fat turnout mufflers combines the style of a muscle car with top-of-the-line Harley-Davidson performance at every twist of the throttle. Jetting out past the rear axle, these dominating pipes add to the fierce, beefy look of the bike.

Fat Rear Tire

Behold an ultra-fat, 240mm rear tire for a powerful, no-nonsense look and added grip. Harnessing explosive, off-the-line power, the rear tire on the V-Rod Muscle® motorcycle enhances the pure dragster look with the sticky, high-performance tread you need for staying glued to the pavement.

Air Box Cover

Matching the color and angular design of the V-Rod Muscle® model bodywork, the air box cover incorporates side scoops covered with woven wire mesh for a meaty, powerful race bike look. You can't help but think about the Detroit muscle cars from back in the day.

Mirror Turn Signals

Adding to the clean, streamlined design of the V-Rod Muscle® model are the front LED turn signals. Integrated into the stems of the mirrors, these bright functional indicators are smartly combined with the mirrors to help shore up the front end for a clean, custom look.

LED Stop-Turn-Tail Lights

Bright, highly visible LED lights in combined stop-tail-turn signals are integrated into the rear fender of the V-Rod Muscle® model. Hugging and accentuating the massive rear tire, the design of the combination lights match other angular shapes of the bodywork for an impressive, consistent look from wheel to wheel.

Side-Mounted License Plate

True to the clean, fast lines of the bike, the side-mounted license plate leaves the rear fender surface smooth and uncluttered. Minimal and modern—every inch of the V-Rod Muscle® motorcycle is styled to perfection to achieve an aggressive, custom look.

Radiator Design

Every inch of a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle is created to sync up with the bike's overall look and performance. The V-Rod Muscle® model is no exception. As the very first water-cooled Harley-Davidson, we turned to styling to make sure the radiator on the V-Rod models became part of the design instead of an interruption to the flow of the eye.

Inverted Forks

Race-inspired, 43mm inverted forks help reduce unsprung weight and increase strength and rigidity of the assembly. They add to the wide look that flows all the way through to the tail of the V-Rod Muscle® motorcycle. Strong and sporty—the front end is a testament to the dominating look of a modern muscle car.

Premium Paint

Up to two times thicker than the competition, custom quality paint comes standard on all Harley-Davidson® motorcycles. Clearcoat layering up to five mils deep. Bigger metal flakes. Unique effects in the denim and pearl colors. Skimping simply is not in our vocabulary.

Revolution® Engine Heritage

From the Strip to the Street. Harley-Davidson has a passion for performance that is rooted in decades of racing and winning championships. So when The Motor Company set out to produce a high-powered, liquid-cooled engine, it began with the VR1000 superbike engine. Its performance is inspired by American-style, big, powerful torque coupled with high-end horsepower. The Revolution® engine is the heart of a machine that attracts a new breed of riders who are fascinated by the heritage and mystique of Harley-Davidson and the power of a high-end street performance motorcycle.

Revolution® Engine Innovation

Through a partnership with legendary automaker, Porsche, and their world-renowned team of engineers, Harley-Davidson created a revolutionary engine. The final result was something uniquely Harley-Davidson, the industry's most perfect blend of torque and horsepower in the high revving V-Twin Revolution® engine. Fuel injection. Dual overhead cams. Liquid cooled. 122 horses. Massive, brute power behind pure Harley-Davidson innovation.

Pure Harley-Davidson Styling

Feast your eyes on the Revolution® engine and there's no mistaking its roots. This is authentic Harley-Davidson® style through and through with an attention to detail you won't find from any other motorcycle company. The unique, platinum finished Revolution® engine features polished cylinder heads and rocker covers for a one-of-a-kind look, while the machined cooling fin tips give it a stripped down metal finish. It's a jewel machined out of metal. Pure. Dripping with power. From the classic edge of the cooling fins to the clean lines of cases and covers—the Revolution® engine makes an ironclad statement to holding on to what's right and staying true to what satisfies the rider.

Custom Power and Performance

Tuned to produce 122 horsepower, the 1250cc Revolution® engine on the V-Rod Muscle® model is one of Harley-Davidson's highest horsepower engine to this day. With dual overhead cams and four valves per cylinder, it provides 86 ft. lbs. of torque at 6500 rpm, while feeling refined and velvety smooth all the way up to the redline.

High Marks for Durability

The Harley-Davidson Revolution® engine is an extremely durable motorcycle engine. It survived the most brutal and aggressive durability test in the industry: the Dusseldorf Test. Simulating a grueling trip along Germany's notorious Autobahn, the engine endured a wide range of performance tests. From idle states to city speeds, to wide-open throttle and mountain climbing torque, the Revolution engine surpassed the goal of 500 hours of non-stop performance.

Hydroformed Frame

Harley-Davidson's Chief Styling Officer Emeritus, Willie G. Davidson, asked for a frame so beautiful it could sit in a museum. And that's exactly what the Harley-Davidson team of engineers created. Using an innovative process called hydroforming, they were able to form unconventional angles and apply fewer welds by bending and shaping metal pipes with high-pressure water. The result: a sturdy chassis with improved rigidity. To date, The Motor Company is the only major motorcycle manufacturer to use hydroforming to construct frames.

H-D® Smart Security System (Optional)

The factory installed next-generation security system features a hands-free fob that automatically arms and disarms the vehicle electronic security functions as you approach and walk away from the bike. Stick the fob on your ignition key ring and let it do all the work. It's this attention to details and security that make Harley-Davidson® motorcycles unique. Offered as a part of the "Security Package" (which includes Anti-Lock Brakes).

Artfully Hidden Technology

Harley-Davidson leverages the latest in technology without compromising style and function. That means we hide electronics. The whole wiring harness is skillfully routed behind the jewels of the bike—the tank, engine and all the other eye-popping features you want to see. It's just another way The Motor Company goes the extra mile to give its bikes that premium, top-of-the-line fit and finish.

Intuitive Controls

Hand controls on a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle are incredibly intuitive. The turn signals are self-canceling and, based on the speed and angle of the motorcycle, they know how long to stay on. Engaging the controls quickly becomes second nature so you can focus less on turning off your signal and more on basking in the freedom of the ride.

Brembo® Brakes with Optional ABS

Increased confidence. Control. High-performance Brembo® dual-disk brakes offer consistent stopping power at every leg of your journey. Plus, the optional Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) helps reduce the chance of wheel lock-up if you need to brake suddenly. And since we hid the speed sensor, the bike maintains its clean, slick look. Performance without sacrificing style. That's what The Motor Company is all about. The Anti-Lock Brakes are offered as a part of the "Security Package" (which includes the H-D® Smart Security System).

"Slipper" Clutch

Taken from the racetrack to the world of custom. The V-Rod Muscle® motorcycle features a "slipper," (or "slip and assist") clutch that provides smoother, high-power handling in turns or whenever you downshift. By reducing clutch friction, the slipper clutch helps keep your rear wheel at a controlled clip.

Michelin® Scorcher™ Tires

The Michelin® Scorcher™ tires provide the superior performance, sensational grip, impressive durability and excellent handling expected on a race-bred bike. The exclusive deep-cut tread design improves grip and water evacuation capability. Grip performance and durability is also enhanced by the tire's rubber compounds, which use the latest generation of Michelin synthetic polymers. Under the rear rubber, aramid belts are used to stabilize your ride, which helps inspire confidence in handling.

Tuned to Be Ridden

Harley-Davidson® motorcycles are different from any other bike out on the road. There's a balance to them. The steering, the maneuverability—it's all in concert. And each Harley-Davidson® model is tuned differently to create a unique riding experience for each individual no matter which bike they swing their leg over. Let's face it, we didn't get to where we are by being like everyone else.

Forward-Mounted Controls

With the custom forward-mounted controls on the V-Rod Muscle® model, you can kick back a little and stretch your legs for the ultimate power cruise through town or across the state line. It's time to take in the open road the way you were meant to—on a two-wheeled machine that's built to outmuscle the rest.

Seat Engineering and Design

The seat is home for Harley-Davidson® motorcycle riders. They want a seat that has unique style without sacrificing comfort. Because of that, Harley-Davidson invests a lot of time in researching, designing and testing seats so that every bike has just the right saddle.

 

The fast, powerful and aggressive V-Rod Muscle™ motorcycle is built for riders who want a little extra beef with their horsepower.
Big meaty air scoops, muscle-bound mufflers, 240mm rear tire, fastback-style tail section and massive airbox compliment the power of the 1250 cc liquid-cooled Revolution® engine. Ride the V-Rod Muscle™ and you’ll learn the true definition of “power cruiser.”

This brawny beast is for performance enthusiasts who crave power and control, with a dash of intimidation, in a package that is all Harley-Davidson.

• High-performance Brembo® triple-disc brakes with available ABS
• Race-bred slip and assist clutch helps ease drive train effort during downshifting
• 240 mm wide rear tire
• Forward-mounted footpegs and controls
• Teardrop reflector-optic headlight
• Electric power accessory connector under seat

2013 Harley-Davidson VRSCF V-Rod Muscle - Press Release

NEW MODELS AND NEW OPTIONS FROM HARLEY-DAVIDSON FOR 2013
110th Anniversary Editions, Hard Candy Custom Styling, and a Restyled Street Bob

MILWAUKEE (August 20, 2011) – Harley-Davidson rolls into its 110th model year with a line of authentic American motorcycles that includes 110th Anniversary Editions of select Harley-Davidson® motorcycle models and a restyled Dyna® Street Bob® model. Harley-Davidson Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) offers two new models, the CVO Breakout , a high-performance Softail® model with exciting new finish options, and the CVO Road King®, fitted with an innovative vented windshield and high-output audio system.

Also new for 2013, Harley-Davidson launches Hard Candy Custom , a styling movement rooted in themes first seen in the chopper era of the late 1960s that embraces dazzling metal flake paint, brilliant chrome, and styling details in accessories, gear and apparel. Hard Candy Custom elements include "big flake" paint finishes, three of which will be selectively offered as a solid-color option on five Harley-Davidson production motorcycles for 2013.

H-D1 Factory Customization expands with the Street Bob joining the 1200 Custom as Harley-Davidson models in the web-based program that allows customers to select factory-installed options in more than 2,000 combinations, build a bike on the screen, and then order it through an authorized Harley-Davidson dealer.

More than a century of experience, knowledge and riding passion lies behind each 2013 Harley-Davidson.

Highlights of the 2012 Harley-Davidson line include:

Ten Harley-Davidson models are offered as 110th Anniversary Editions, each serialized and featuring exclusive paint and commemorative solid bronze fuel tank badges. Production will vary by model and will be strictly limited to ensure exclusivity. These models come with all available factory-installed options as standard equipment. (See separate release for more details on the 110th Anniversary Editions.)

The Harley-Davidson® Street Bob® gets a tougher profile for 2013 with new blacked-out triple clamps and powertrain, and a chopped rear fender with side-mounted license plate and stop/turn/tail lights. This rowdy Dyna bobber features a solo seat and mini-ape handlebar mounted on new risers that make it easier to customize the Street Bob. New paint options include Hard Candy Custom metalflake and a scalloped two-tone option. (See separate release for more details on the 2013 Street Bob.)

The Street Bob serves as a great starting point for customization, and now along with the 1200 Custom it can be personalized through H-D1 Factory Customization with options selected by the customer using the online Bike Builder on Harley-Davidson.com, and installed as the motorcycle is assembled by the Harley-Davidson Motor Company. By choosing from different wheels, paint and engine finishes, the customer can dramatically alter the look of the motorcycle.
