LOL.. Admittedly, I think you would make me look silly. Don't you have quite an HP and torque advantage?

Re: TxVrod in the hizzle

not right now i dont,, but those vrods are pretty fast, ithink it would give alot of the 600's a tough time,, depending on the riders of course, but they are fast for what they are..

you have exhaust on it or any motor work done..

Re: TxVrod in the hizzle

I've heard the same about running against 600's but, you're right... it also takes a rider. Mostly, V-rodders stay away from sport bikes for obvious reasons. Rods are fast but just fast for sport-cruisers.

I have SE pipes, a K&N filter and an ECM remap. That's about it as far as performance mods.

There are some V-Rodders which are running turbos and can put out some good numbers.

Re: TxVrod in the hizzle

Whats the V-rod rated at? *I know Yamahas Road Warrior, The Rune, and the Trump Rocket three are all exceptionally quick, and they are in the same catagory as the vtx. *

At the crank: 115HP and 78ft-lb. ~10% less at the RW, obviously. I'm not a racer (too big) but I hear about all of the above getting their handed to them by 'Rodders all the time. Of course, I cannot substantiate any of it. Personally, however, I talked to a manager at a Triumph dealer who said he's been frustrated multiple times because he's not been able to beat a V-Rod on a Rocket III (which is as very nice bike, btw...)

Re: TxVrod in the hizzle

Impressive, I would think that the Rocket three would own it, but I gues Harley prevails in this situation. I saw both motorcycles the other day, just on the road, and they both look pretty good to me. I could of swore that the Rocket three makes a good deal more hp's than that, but I gues it is heavy as a rock.

That's just it. It's got power, it's just very heavy. I would love to own own since they look so cool.

Re: TxVrod in the hizzle

I took the kids across the street for a ride on our street yesterday. one is 2 years old and one is 5.
they both walked in my garage the other day and one went to the chopper and the other to my daughters chopper and they hopped on and started making motor noises. Instantly, I think its something that boys are born with. I had to get all three bikes out and give ride for each on each. They liked the full sized harley the best right:
gotta get em started young on the Harley so they wont get the crotch rocket itch when older :laughing6:
