VRSCD Night Rod™ Model Overview

The menacing VRSCD Night Rod continues to keep the VRSC family on the dark side of the street in 2007 with sinister styling and bold power. With a raked-out, 36-degree fork angle and mid-mount controls for aggressive cruising, the Night Rod rides in the shadows with color-matched speed screen visor, chrome Straight-shot Dual exhaust, Black Slotted Disc Cast Aluminum wheels and blacked-out components. The highway pegs are standard for a laid-back ride. The Revolution V-Twin engine is finished in black powder-coat with highlighted fins and polished covers. A five-gallon fuel tank lies under a low seat. Optional Black, Staggered 10-spoke Cast Aluminum wheels are available for a more aggressive look. The Night Rod can also be ordered with chrome engine covers and a Smart Security system. Three color choices include Vivid Black, Yellow Pearl and new Pacific Blue Pearl.
