2017 Harley-Davidson V-ROD Muscle

It sends massive horsepower and low-end torque directly to your adrenal gland when you unleash the engine. The V-Rod Muscle® motorcycle doesn't stutte

There’s a quarter-mile of asphalt in its family tree.

Our deep racing heritage comes screaming to life in the V-Rod Muscle®. It starts with a liquid-cooled 1250cc 60° Revolution® V-Twin engine featuring dual overhead cams and 120 horsepower to the fat rear tire. Coupled with high-performance features, like Brembo® dual disc brakes, assist and slip clutch, drag style bars and inverted front forks. You get a look that’s pure, streamlined, American muscle. Just like you’d expect from its name.

Authentic Styling

  • DRAG-STYLE HANDLE BARS WITH INSTRUMENT CLUSTER: Take to the streets in an aggressive power cruising position. With its aluminum shell cast over steel 1-inch tubing and internally-routed wiring, this angular drag-inspired bar comes on strong with a clean, mean and meaty attitude. The attached triple gauge cluster - bold, sleek and easy-to-read mph, rpm and fuel gauges is our distinct take on custom performance.
  • INVERTED FORKS: Race-inspired, 43mm inverted forks help reduce unsprung weight and increase strength and rigidity of the assembly. They add to the wide look that flows all the way through to the tail of the V-Rod Muscle® motorcycle. Strong and sporty - the front end is a testament to the dominating look of a modern muscle car.
  • PURE HARLEY-DAVIDSON STYLING: Feast your eyes on the Revolution® engine and there's no mistaking its roots. This is authentic Harley-Davidson style through and through with an attention to detail you won't find from any other motorcycle company. The unique, platinum finished Revolution® engine features polished cylinder heads and rocker covers for a one-of-a-kind look, while the machined cooling fin tips give it a stripped down metal finish. It's a jewel machined out of metal. Pure. Dripping with power. From the classic edge of the cooling fins to the clean lines of cases and covers the Revolution® engine makes an ironclad statement about holding on to what's right and staying true to what satisfies the rider.


  • FORWARD-MOUNTED CONTROLS: With the custom forward-mount controls on the V-Rod Muscle® model, you can kick back a little and stretch your legs for the ultimate power cruise through town or across the state line. It's time to take in the open road the way you were meant to - on a two-wheeled machine that's built to outmuscle the rest.
