More fun in the corners
The exhausts are now well tucked away
The new steeper fork angles will make the Street Rod more nimble
And the seating position is now more amenable to aggressive cornering
Now let's go hunting
January 25, 2005 Harley has reworked a new version of its V-ROD cruiser to make a significantly different motorcycle - the Street Rod. The Street Rod is restyled, but there's much more than just a facelift - it also has much more ground clearance during cornering, much better sports suspension including inverted forks, more horsepower and a new steering geometry designed for quicker turning and a more nimble ride. The riding position is now upright and ideal for around town, and the fuel capacity has been increased from 15 to 19 litres. The new model shows that Harley is listening - it addresses all of the criticisms made by the motorcycle press of the VRSCA and VRSCB models.
