2015 Harley-Davidson VRSCF V-Rod Muscle Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Fat Rear Tire

Behold the 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.

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 sportyâ??the front end is a testament to the dominating look of a modern muscle car.

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.

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.

Air Box Cover

Matching the color and angular design of the V-Rod Muscle® model bodywork, the airbox 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.

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.

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 modernâ??every inch of the V-Rod Muscle® motorcycle is styled to perfection to achieve an aggressive, custom look.

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.

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.

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 coversâ??the Revolution® engine makes an ironclad statement about holding on to what’s right and staying true to what satisfies the rider.

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.

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 lb-ft of torque at 6500 rpm, while feeling refined and velvety smooth all the way up to the redline.

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’s 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 detail and security that make Harley-Davidson® motorcycles unique.

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.

“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.

Brembo® Brakes with ABS

Increased confidence. Control. High-performance Brembo® dual-disc brakes offer consistent stopping power at every leg of your journey. Plus, the Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) helps reduce the chance of wheel lock-up if you need to brake suddenly. And since we stylized the speed sensor, the bike maintains its clean, slick look. Performance without sacrificing style. That’s what The Motor Company is all about.

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 toâ??on a two-wheeled machine that’s built to outmuscle the rest.
