2011 Harley V-Rod Muscle | Quick Look

2011 Harley-Davidson Motorcycle

Developed in conjunction with Porsche, the Harley-Davidson V-Rod takes the American dream machine and gives it a Teutonic updating.

The 1250cc motor is liquid cooled, with overhead cams and four valves per cylinder. The Muscle version of the V-Rod bristles with aluminum goodies, including the wheels, handlebars, and triple clamps, giving it an appropriately purposeful look.

To keep the look clean, LED turn signals are integrated into the rearview mirrors and rear fender. New Michelin Scorcher tires make an appearance in 2011, along with ABS.
