2016 V-Rod® Line-Up

Harley-Davidson V-Rod® Muscle


There’s a quarter-mile of asphalt in its family tree.

It took dragsters, superbikes, maybe even a little board track inspiration from deep in our racing heritage to bring together the motorcycle you see here. A liquid-cooled 60° V-twin engine ready to breathe a little fire onto the street where you live. A fat rear tire and styling details that scream American muscle. Some worry about the corrupting influence of absolute power. We say hit the gas and give it a try.

Harley-Davidson V-Rod® Night Rod Special


The dark horse always has the most mystique.

If you think all the blacked-out metal looks sinister, you’ve got the right idea. The Night Rod® Special motorcycle is pure aggression from fast back tail section to streamlined front end, built around a liquid-cooled 60° V-twin engine stuffed full of racing-derived serious business like dual overhead cams, 4-valve heads and velocity stacks feeding its double barrel exhaust. In other words, things happen when you twist the throttle. Better if it all happens under the cover of darkness.
