2016 Harley-Davidson V-Rod Night Rod Special

The long, low and blacked-out 2016 Harley-Davidson V-Rod Night Rod has 240mm Michelin Scorcher 11 radial rubber that puts the power to the ground with the graceful 120mm front guiding the way.

On tap is 125 horsepowe at 8250 rpm, and 85 ft/lbs of torque just 1250 rpm earlier. A slipper-style clutch allows for aggressive riding, and so the inverted forks and twin shocks with updated settings. Pulled back bars make the bike comfortable for longer rides than from stoplight-to-stoplight, though it’s still not an all-day rider.
