What it has always been is a sleek, fast machine with a big hunger for straightaway acceleration. The reason is easy to see. It’s right there at the center. A liquid-cooled, fuel-injected 60° V-Twin Revolution® powertrain. Dual overhead cams. Four-valve heads. Two aggressive-breathing velocity stacks housed in a massive air box. Wind the engine up to the redline and make short work of the next quarter mile and beyond. The rigid, hydro-formed frame puts all that power to thrilling use. We wanted stopping to be equally exhilarating as going. All VRSC bikes are now fitted with performance 4-piston caliper Brembo® brakes. With all these goodies to play with, we took the most award-winning Harley-Davidson® motorcycle down some new roads. No matter how you like to ride, with the additions of the Night Rod™ and Street Rod™ models, now there’s a VRSC bike that fits your style. But that’s not all that’s new for 2006. There’s also a 240mm rear tire kit available in late 2005 through Genuine Motor Parts and Accessories. Scorching asphalt has never been so much fun.
Feast your eyes on the new roadster-inspired VRSCR Street Rod.™ Consider yourself tempted. Now get ready to unleash 120 horses on some winding asphalt. Crack the throttle up to the retuned Revolution® engine’s 9,000-rpm redline and you get deep into one of motorcycling’s most satisfying powerbands. Hairpins are equally satisfying on a bike this agile. Inverted fork with sculpted triple clamp. Steep rake, cornering clearance and straight-shot dual pipes for 40° worth of lean. Mid-mount controls. Brembo® brakes. Staggered 10-Spoke wheels. And a big 5-gallon tank. Because for all its curb appeal, the Street Rod is built to be ridden long and hard, far from any curb.
