2017 Night Rod Special Powertrain
To create the 60-degree V-twin motor for the V-Rod bikes, Harley started with their VR1000 superbike engine, then worked with Porsche to refine it just enough for street use. The result is the Night Rod Special's Revolution V-Twin engine, cranking out 125 horses and more than 83 foot-pounds of torque at 7,000 rpm. The liquid cooled motor has a classic V-twin sound at idle, but rev it up and the sounds changes to something deeply menacing. In keeping with its sinister, stealth look, the Night Rod's engine gets a totally blacked-out treatment, with only a few brushed metal highlights, like on the stacked cylinder fins. If you prefer more flash from your bike, just talk to the parts department here at Appalachian Harley-Davidson; they can order you genuine Harley-Davidson parts and accessories like chrome bits and covers, and our service team will be happy to install them for you.
Night Rod Special Features and Options
The 2017 V-Rod Night Rod Special may have a sinister look and wicked power, but beyond that, this bike is easy to tame with its refined handling and modern features. You certainly won't have to worry about traction, since there is a fat 240mm tire at the back, putting down the power. Handling is taken care of by a sporty inverted front fork and specially designed rear shocks. The upgraded brakes feature calipers by Brembo, with standard ABS. As this is a performance-oriented bike, the rider sits down low over the frame, with forward controls so you can really lean over the bike. For a more sporty seating position, mid-mounted foot pegs are available in our parts department, as well as different seat and handlebar setups, too.
This bike looks mean no matter what color you choose for the bodywork, since so much of it is already dressed in deep, dark, black. For maximum menacing attitude, though, choose the Black Denim finish. Other paint colors available on the 2017 model include Velocity Red Sunglo, Crushed Ice Pearl, Corona Yellow Pearl, and Crushed Ice Denim.
The extensive Harley-Davidson parts catalog has parts to make your Night Rod Special anything from a street racer to a weekend touring bike. You can find nylon soft look saddlebags, with a hard inner shell and a factory luggage rack, to hold all of your gear for a weekend-long ride. For more comfort on those long haul rides, there are windshields to block the wind, which can be removed in minutes to go back to cruising around town in sporty style. You can find seats with more support, or seats and handlebars that adjust the length of reach handlebars, to best match your height. Contact our knowledgeable parts staff and they will be happy to assist you with all the parts specifically engineered to fit your Night Rod Special.
