2012 Harley-Davidson VRSC V-Rod Muscle


The Harley-Davidson VRSC V-Rod Muscle is a Classic Sport motorcycle. As always Harley-Davidson has created another American made machine that is as powerful as it is gorgeous. Harley-Davidson has yet produced another meaty powerhouse to add to its reputation. The addition of all the ground breaking technological improvements along with the eye-catching state of the art features has heads turning. Style, comfort, technology, and convenience are perfectly married in the VRSC V-Rod Muscle.

Time and effort has been used to give this a very comfortable ride no matter the distance. There wasn’t any sacrifice in comfort while maintaining the impressive quality in look for this two-seat driver and passenger motorcycle. Harley-Davidson has not only strived but succeeded in giving this seat a unique look and impeccable comfort. In marrying style and comfort with technology and convenience a three-in-one gauge has been built into and internally wired to the handle bars. Yellow, orange, and red lighting making it easy to read and maintain the custom look. A new exhaust has been added for performance and look. This bike has a dual exhaust system where each of these meaty mufflers turn-out and reaches past the rear axle adding to the fierce style of the VRSC V-Rod Muscle. A 240 mm rear tire has been added to improve not only the performance but the look of this muscle machine. The fat treads add grip and quick take off without having you sitting there spinning your tires. LED turn signals have been added into the mirrors and LED lights and signals have been added to the rear fender. The new turn signals have impressive technology. After engaging the turn signal the speed, angle and turning lean is all calculated to automatically rest the turn signal. No need to remember turning it off or accidentally forget of doing so.

Now for the performance power of this artwork on wheels. The Harley-Davidson VRSC V-Rod Muscle motorcycle is an impressive 1250cc, four-stroke, dual overhead camshaft (DOHC), V-Twin engine with fuel injection. This engine has four valves per cylinder and has 88 lb-ft of torque at 6500 revolutions per minute (RPM). The engine has been finished in platinum and the cylinder heads have been polished. Just when you think it can’t get any better it also has been equip with the ""slipper"" (slip and assist) clutch that provides less slippage, reduced friction, and provides smoother downshifting giving increased rear control of your motorcycle. To further improve the stability and sturdiness of the motorcycle Harley-Davidson used a technology called hydro-forming to make the bike’s frame. This process adds more angles to the frame while decreasing the amount of welds made. This improvement gives more rigidity to the frame. There is nothing prettier than when style meets power excellence, the 2012 Harley-Davidson VRSC V-Rod Muscle motorcycle is like a muscle car on two wheels and looks amazing.
