– 2006 Harley-Davidson VRSCR StreetRod
Feast your eyes on the new roadster-inspired VRSCR Street Rod.™ Consider yourself tempted. Now get ready to unleash 120 horses on some winding asphalt. Crack the throttle up to the retuned Revolution® engine’s 9,000-rpm redline and you get deep into one of motorcycling’s most satisfying powerbands. Hairpins are equally satisfying on a bike this agile. Inverted fork with sculpted triple clamp. Steep rake, cornering clearance and straight-shot dual pipes for 40° worth of lean. Mid-mount controls. Brembo® brakes. Staggered 10-Spoke wheels. And a big 5-gallon tank. Because for all its curb appeal, the Street Rod is built to be ridden long and hard, far from any curb.
VRSCR StreetRod™ Model Overview
A high-performance roadster, the new VRSCR Street Rod combines an upright seating position, a 40-degree lean angle and retuned suspension to create a motorcycle that marries custom styling with a new level of cornering agility. Mid-mount foot controls, shorter handlebar risers and a taller seat move the rider forward into a more aggressive position, ready to attack the curves. Fork angle is reduced from 38 degrees to 32 degrees, and the Street Rod wheelbase is 66.8 inches, 0.7 inches shorter than the VRSCA V-Rod. The 43mm inverted forks and rear shocks have a performance calibration to help deliver a performance-oriented ride. A retuned silver-and-black Revolution V-Twin engine with straight-shot dual exhaust pipes is pumped up to make 120 hp and 80 ft. lbs. of torque. A new, five-gallon fuel cell offers extended range. Staggered 10-Spoke Cast Aluminum wheels wear ZR-rated Dunlop performance tires. Offered in Vivid Black with a black frame and in four additional colors with a silver-leafed aluminum frame. A security system is optional.
