This is the last year for the Harley-Davidson V-Rod line, so if you want a new one, it’s time to act. The V-Rod Muscle features lots of polished aluminum and satin chrome, giving it the most contemporary look of any Harley-Davidson motorcycle.

Powering the V-Rod Muscle is the liquid-cooled, DOHC motor that was designed in conjunction with Porsche. It’s high-revving for a Harley-Davidson, and definitely puts out good power.

With forward foot controls and drag bars, your profile is aggressive, and definitely designed for short, fast hops rather than long rides. The V-Rod Muscle is power-cruiser defined.
