2012 Harley V-Rod Anniversary | Quick Look

2012 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 V-Rod 10th Anniversary Edition is a tribute to the original 2002 V-Rod, but has many new features this year, including pull-back bars, reduced-reach pegs, straight-shot exhaust with dual chrome slash-cut mufflers, inverted forks, flush-mount LED taillight and, of course, new graphics and a V-Rod 10th anniversary emblem.
