Re: 2006 VRSCD Night Road

it is the vrod, just a new trim level and prolly suspension might be a bit diff.

I like it, and i I were to buy a cruiser, id look seriously at buying it, but For you , I still think a buell, you might like better and suit you better,

Re: 2006 VRSCD Night Road

I think they've added a wider tire, mid controls and New/different trim on the headlight.

I like the Street Rod too because it has 5 more hp to bring it up to 120, and a 5 gallon tank. (5 hp is nothing when your at 115hp already, I wonder what they did; new air filter maybe)

Same 180mm tire as the VRSCA/B. The additional 5HP comes from a less restrictive exhaust and a different MAP. The extra 1.3 gallons would be really nice to have one mine.

Last Saturday, I replaced my 180mm Dunlop piece of with a 200mm Metz. Daddy like!!

Did it fit?* I would think you need to change the fender and the swing arm.* Though i don't know much about V-rods, but i like them. (they are like sitting on a woman. Got that hourglass figure .)

Re: 2006 VRSCD Night Road

I had to grind a notch out of my lower belt guard but other than that, if fits just fine. If I were to go to a 240, I would need to change the swingarm and front pulley.

I think I would be compromising some ride comfort and some power if I went with anything larger than the 200. Besides, I really like the looks of the 200.

Re: 2006 VRSCD Night Road

Good looking bike. That is more of my taste. What is the price tag on that thing?

~$15000 - $15400 MSRP and that's about what they're going for since they're new on the market.
