Lot 303 - 2002 Harley-Davidson ‘V’Rod
|Odometer reading||1,900 miles|
|Estimate||£7,999 - £10,000|
The Harley-Davidson VRSC (V-Twin Racing Street Custom) family of cruiser motorcycles were introduced in 2001 in a single model called the V-Rod, developed by Harley-Davidson to compete against Japanese and American muscle bikes. The 'V-Rod' made use of the Revolution engine, developed jointly with Porsche, and for the first time in Harley public production history, features overhead cams, and liquid cooling. The V-Rod is visually distinct from other Harley-Davidson motorcycles and can be easily identified by the 60-degree V-twin engine, the radiator and the hydroformed frame members that support the round-topped air cleaner cover. A distinct difference between the V-Rod and all other Harley production motorcycles is the location of the fuel tank. The fuel tank on the V-Rod is located underneath the seat, placing the driver on top of it, rather than the usual frontal placement. Loosely based on the VR-1000 superbike, it continues to be a platform around which Harley-Davidson builds drag-racing competition machines. All VRSC models are produced at Harley-Davidson's Vehicle and Powertrain Operations facility in Blue Springs- Kansas City, Missouri.
This highly individual motorcycle was purchased by the vendor from new and has been used very little since with just 1,900 miles recorded. Supplied with a V5 registration document together with a current MoT test certificate, this metallic blue Harley is described by the vendor as a 'delight' to ride.
