2008 Harley Davidson
When most people think of a Harley-Davidson the first image that comes to their mind is a loud, grumbling, large motorcycle, traveling with 1500 of their drinking buddies dressed in black with large beards following along. The 2008 Harley-Davidson VRSCDX Night Rod is the Harley that shatters the image. Dressed in black, and the motorcycle Dracula would most likely ride, the VRSCDX Night Rod is one bad-ass ride. Made in the U.S., the Night Rod is being produced for riders who want a little more excitement from their ride. Not lacking the grumbling of the Harley-Davidson, it's actually a really wild sounding bike, and like it's riders, it will announce it's prescence with authority.
Harley-Davidson jumped into the performance market in 2002 with the VROD and drools came from the motorcycle community. The VROD is a forward thinking, newly designed model born from a blank slate, with nothing borrowed from past years styles.
You have to give Harley-Davidson a lot of credit for not sticking with the same old styles that have worked well for them through the years. For this company to grow with the market, they needed to produce a model that went against the grain, and the VROD was a slam-dunk for them. Harley offered a model that was as sporty as they came and took away some of the market from the imports, and still left their American market happy that they could buy a domestic motorcycle with serious performance!
The 2008 Harley-Davidson VRSCDX, Night Rod, has a 1250CC motor that produces 125 horsepower at 62 RPM and 85 foot pounds of torque at 7000 RPM. The engine is liquid cooled and the brakes are 4-piston front and back. The VROD is already a legend in the Harley lineup and will be for years to come
