2004 Harley-Davidson VRSCA V-Rod

VRSCA V-Rod™ Model Overview
The styling of the V-Rod™ motorcycle is pure custom, inspired by long, low drag bikes. It combines two of our finest traditions – the V-Twin engine and Harley-Davidson racing, which has led us to the new, 115hp Revolution™ engine. The V-Rod™ is a new kind of production motorcycle. A mix of high performance and custom styling. It’s a theme that runs all the way to the steel bone of the V-Rod™ frame. With many technological and styling breakthroughs, the V-Rod™ motorcycle and the Revolution® engine establish a new benchmark in motorcycling.
