– 2005 Harley-Davidson V-Rod VRSCA
The day custom muscle was handed out, this one got in line twice. And as anyone who’s ever caught a glimpse of a V-Rod® motorcycle will tell you, it was worth the wait. It all starts with the muscular aluminum bodywork. Perfect in its original brushed metal look, it gets nine glittering new shades to choose from for 2005. The one-of-a-kind, hydro-formed frame recently got a boost in eye appeal with a new silver-leaf coating. The aggressive look keeps rolling with a 49mm 38° raked fork, a 180mm rear tire, solid disc wheels and a sweeping exhaust system that’s out of this world. At the center is the liquid-cooled, fuel-injected 60° V-Twin Revolution® powertrain with 115 horsepower and enough torque to counterpunch the earth’s rotation. It all leads to the jaw-dropping combination of power and beauty you see here. V-Rod® also gets a new stiffer rear axle, for when a wandering road wants to show you a good time. The original V-Rod recipe keeps getting sweeter.
