2016 Harley-Davidson V-Rod Muscle

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, while the turn signals integrated into the mirrors is a nice touch.
