The original Harley-Davidson power cruiser continues in 2009. The V-Rod rolls on a fat 240mm rear tyre. The sweeping lastomer-formed exhaust ends in curved, bright chrome slash-cut mufflers. A scooped seat cradles the rider just 660mm off the pavement. Welded pull-back handlebars frame the clamshell instrument pod and teardrop reflector optic headlamp. Raked out to 34 degrees, 49mm forks hold an anodised aluminium profile laced front wheel. The V-Rod is available in six production colour combinations, new Vivid Black, Pewter Pearl, Flame Blue Pearl, Red Hot Sunglo, Vivid Black & Pewter Pearl, or Flame Blue Pearl & Pewter Pearl.
