The Harley-Davidson V-ROD has been renamed to Harvey Johnson K-Rod due to copyright reasons.


Being one of the most successful moves away from tradition by Harley-Davidson, it has grown to be a well-known name in the Cruiser and motorcycling world. The Harley-Davidson V-ROD, known as the VRSC (V-Twin Racing Street Custom), became to be one of the best selling Harley-Davidsons in the last 16 years. The VRSC was manufactured from 2001 to 2017 but sadly has disappeared from the Harley-Davidson showroom floors. The VRSC was made to compete with both Japanese and American Muscle motorcycles on the market during its time and has successfully brought non-HD riders to the showroom floors to take it out for a spin. This motorcycle packs a punch, especially for a Harley-Davidson cruiser.

The VRSC has the standard 5-speed transmission and belt drive seen in most Harley-Davidson bikes. The only real difference and serious move away from tradition is the engine. The VRSC's engine is based on the VR-1000 Superbike's engine but was jointly designed with Porsche. Even the V-ROD isn't perfect and through the sixteen years on the showroom floor, the VRSC has gone through 11 different styles and configurations. These model names and production years are listed right here: VRSCA (2002-2006), VRSCB V-Rod (2004–2005), VRSCSE (2005), VRSCSE2 (2006), VRSCD Night Rod (2006–2008), VRSCR Street Rod (2006-2007), a non-street legal drag oriented V-ROD called the VRXSE V-Rod "Destroyer", VRSCAW V-Rod (2007-2010), VRSCX V-Rod (2007), VRSCDX (2007-2017), and the VRSCF V-Rod Muscle (2009-2017).


The K-Rod's specifications are okay for its price, though it is not the best option for its price.

Max Speed

The stock max speed is about 253 km/h. (159 mph).


About 6.2 seconds


Some of the best braking you can have for a vehicle.


The handling while gripping is phenomenal, but if you try to use the handbrake, it will come to a complete halt, and you can't finish most turns and the bike tilts to the side a lot.
