Standard Features

Overview
 The dark horse always has the most mystique. If you think all the blacked-out metal looks sinister, you’ve got the right idea. The Night Rod® Special motorcycle is pure aggression from fast back tail section to streamlined front end, built around a liquid-cooled 60-degree V-twin engine stuffed full of racing-derived serious business like dual overhead cams, 4 valve heads and velocity stacks feeding its double barrel exhaust. In other words, things happen when you twist the throttle. Better if it all happens under the cover of darkness.  
Authentic Styling
 Blacked-Out Look: Pitch black and sinister as hell, the Night Rod Special model is aggressively styled from the front end to the back. Engine, wheels, forks, triple clamps, swingarm – they're all blacked-out and thick with uncompromising, drag strip attitude.  
 Low-Rise Handlebar: Grab the slammed blacked-out drag-style handlebar for an aggressive riding position – slightly forward and reminiscent of tearing up the racetrack, but easily within reach for plenty of riding comfort along with that attitude.  
 Fastback Tail Section: The Night Rod Special model's tail delivers even more drag-strip performance and attitude. The chopped down and aggressively tapered fender shows off that fat rear tire, while the slimmed down center plate mount and flush-mounted low-maintenance LED taillamp creates a streamlined impression that lasts.  
 Fat Rear Tire: Behold the ultra-fat, 240 mm rear tire for a powerful, no-nonsense look and added grip. Harnessing explosive, off-the-line power, the rear tire on the Night Rod Special motorcycle enhances the pure dragster look with the sticky, high-performance tread you need for staying glued to the pavement.  
 Double-Barrel Exhaust: The Night Rod Special motorcycle proves that a performance exhaust can still be a beautiful set of pipes. The double-barrel exhaust features brushed finish dual mufflers, black end caps and exhaust shields. Performance and bold style erupt with every crack of the throttle.  
 Streamlined Front End: With its color-matched speed screen pared down to bare performance minimum, its sleek headlamp and slotted-bracket sport fender, the Night Rod Special motorcycle comes on strong with an aggressive race-inspired, power-first front profile.  
 Cast Aluminum Performance Wheel: When the rubber meets the road, it’s your wheels that make the difference. Inspired by performance sports car design, these split 5-spoke wheels flash heavy-weight attitude, but do it at a full 3 pounds lighter than earlier generation V-Rod® motorcycle wheels, which means you roll with tighter handling and smoother suspension response.  
Iconic Engine
 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. Deep black cylinders and rocker covers complete the dark look, while the machined cooling fin tips on the cylinder heads give it a stripped down, raw 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.  
 Revolution Engine: From the strip to the street. Harley-Davidson has a passion for performance that is rooted in decades of racing and winning championships. So when The Motor Company set out to produce a high-powered, liquid-cooled engine, it began with the VR1000 superbike engine. Its performance is inspired by American-style big, powerful torque coupled with high-end horsepower. The Revolution engine is the heart of a machine that attracts a breed of riders who are fascinated by the heritage and mystique of Harley-Davidson and the power of a high-end street performance motorcycle.  
 Revolution Engine Innovation: Through a partnership with legendary automaker Porsche and their world-renowned team of engineers, Harley-Davidson created a revolutionary engine. The final result was something uniquely Harley-Davidson, the industry's most perfect blend of torque and horsepower in the high revving V-twin Revolution engine. Fuel injection. Dual overhead cams. Liquid cooled. 125 horses. Massive, brute power behind pure Harley-Davidson innovation and style.  
 Custom Power and Performance: Tuned to produce 125 horsepower the 1,250 cc Revolution engine is Harley-Davidson's highest horsepower engine to this day. With dual overhead cams and 4 valves per cylinder, it provides 84 ft. lbs. of torque at 7,000 RPM, while feeling refined and velvety smooth all the way up to the redline.  
Handling
 Michelin® Scorcher™ Tires: The Michelin Scorcher tires provide the superior performance, sensational grip, impressive durability and excellent handling expected on a race-bred bike. The exclusive deep-cut tread design improves grip and water evacuation capability. Grip performance and durability is also enhanced by the tire's rubber compounds, which use the latest generation of Michelin synthetic polymers.  
 Assist and Slip Clutch: Taken from the racetrack to the world of custom. The Night Rod Special motorcycle features an Assist and Slip clutch that provides smoother, high-power handling in turns or whenever you downshift. By reducing clutch friction, the slipper clutch helps keep your rear wheel at a controlled clip.  
 Inverted Forks: Grab on and feel the total command delivered by this precision-engineered front end assembly. The performance-tuned front end assembly features inverted forks and a low-angle rake that keep the Night Rod Special motorcycle unsprung mass low and its turning tight, for a nimble and responsive ride at every speed.  
 Brembo® Brakes with ABS: Increased confidence and control. High-performance Brembo dual-disc brakes offer consistent stopping power on every leg of your journey. Plus, the Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) helps reduce the chance of wheel lock-up if you need to brake suddenly. And since we stylized the speed sensor, the bike maintains its clean, slick look. Performance without sacrificing style. That's what The Motor Company is all about.  
Comfort
 Enhanced Ergonomic Controls: Confidence is critical when you're performance riding. That's why we designed the Night Rod Special model's control placement for comfortable access that doesn't compromise its aggressive stance. The handlebars and rider foot pegs are placed so you ride low and mean, but with the controls close and comfortably in reach.  
 Two-Up Bucket Saddle: Settle in and experience the confident connection you get from the deep rider bucket. We designed it to hold you close, low (25.6 inches) and in control, even when you throttle up fast. Just like all Harley-Davidson® seats, it's built with the premium material, custom stitching and the attention to detail that mark the work of motorcycle makers who’ve been putting their own seats in the saddle for over a hundred years.
