2012 Harley-Davidson V-Rod

It's already been 10 years since Harley-Davidson introduced their famed muscle bike, the V-Rod. And to celebrate the occasion, H-D released the V-Rod 10th Anniversary Edition as on one of three new editions in its 2012 VRod lineup (Muscle, Night Rod).

The 10th Anniversary Edition (VRSCDX) features a custom Silver Pearl bodywork with color-matched frame, and of course all the speed screen, extra chrome and polished surfaces the V-Rod is known for.

When the V-Rod was first introduced in 2002, it featured a 1130-cc, 6-degree Revolution V-Twin engine with a 9,000 RPM. Over the years, Harley continued to enhance the V-Rod, and the 2012 edition features the 1250-cc, liquid-cooled Revolution engine.

The 10th Anniversary VRod's powerplant features dual overhead camshafts, four-valve cylinder heads, and Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI).

This is all laid to the pavement through an Assist and Slip Clutch, five-speed transmisson, high-performance carbon fiber drive belt to the 240-mm Michelin Scorcher rear tire. Stopping all this VRod muscle is triple-disc Brembo brakes, with an optional for factory ABS; ABS is part of the optional Security Package that also includes the Smart Security system with proximity-based, hands-free security fob.
