HD VRSCDX Night Rod Special
Finally the Indian bikers can now a have a line up of Harley Davidson bikes at home. The recent Auto Expo was a curtain raiser for many bike brands and Harley Davidson rolled 12 bikes that will be officially available in India through the dealerships across the country. The Night Rod Special is one of the bikes from the HD VRSCDX family and has already stolen a few hearts with its sheer look.
Looks of the HD VRSCDX Night Rod
The HD VRSCDZ Night Rod Special is no nonsense Harley and looks as if it is straight out from the Batman's stable- mysterious yet stylish all at the same time. But I have to honestly admit that the Night Rod looks a bit grumpy and gaudy too as if challenging the capabilities of an ordinary bike rider. Its not for any and every biker anyway.
If you are fond of black, the all-black Night Rod looks awesome- and you need to see it to believe it. The 240mm rear tyre gives the bike a tougher look. The entire body, which includes all the components of the bike, are painted black and in addition a contrasting color racing stripe runs along the length of the bike simply looks stunning.
Engine performance and handling of the HD VRSCDX Night Rod Special
Your lust for the HD VRSCDX Night Rod Special will grow stronger after seeing its power punch up. The bike runs on a 1250cc Revolution V-twin engine that generates a power of 125hp at 8250 rpm and the torque ranging to 85ft-lbs at 7000 rpm. The bike also sports an ESPFI (Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection), technology with a 5-speed tranny, dual overhead cams and also four-valve heads. The 36˚ fork angle, wider rear tyre and triple-disc brakes are a perfect blend of technology and performance for the new age riders.
The "Slipper Clutch" makes downshift a lot easier as well as convenient, and the ABS or the Anti-lock Braking System, which is a conspicuous component of all of the VRSC variants is the most advanced mechanism featured by any power cruiser. This ABS is quite helpful during those emergency halting situations and the rider is in complete control of how much of the brake needs to be applied in any given situation. The seat height of the Night Rod Special is somewhere around 25 inches, which makes it the lowest in the VRSC family. The extra long wheel base makes the HD VRSCDX Night Rod very stable as well as one street dragster and beware it could turn into a serious addiction with the fun this gives on those long drives too.
Pricing of the Harley-Davidson VRSCDX Night Rod Special
Just hold your breath! For here comes the price of this mean machine- it is Rs. 18.95,000. The price might dampen the spirits of many bikers but one must accept the fact that these iconic bikes can only be a rich man's property.
Last word about HD VRSCDX Night Rod Special
The HD VRSCDX Night Rod Special is no wonder bike to fall for but for the price, which is too high for an average buyer, especially in India, but you never know, you might well see a couple of Night Rods in your street itself a couple of years down the lane.
