Flexing its biceps like a winner at a bodybuilding contest, the V-Rod Muscle is not for wallflowers.

Everything about the V-Rod Muscle – from its 240 rear Michelin Scorcher 11 tire to the short-stroke 1250cc liquid-cooled Revolution powerplant to the aggressive air scoops- speaks to its desire to intimidate.

The basis of the Motor Company’s NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle drag racers, the V-Road walks the walk and talks the talk. Aluminum abounds on this machine, including the wheels, handlebars, and triple clamps.
