In 2001, Harley-Davidson introduced a surprising model to their lineup. Called the V-Rod, it featured what Harley called the “Revolution” motor. The name was quite apt, as it was Harley’s first mass-produced liquid-cooled, DOHC engine.
The V-Rod was a serious departure from prior Harleys: the air-cooled V-Twins were at 45 degrees, while this engine was at 60. In addition, the fuel tank was just a cover that housed the airbox – the real tank was under the seat.
The engine was co-developed with the Porsche Engineering Group. As they put it, “Against the backdrop of a collaboration stretching back to the 1970s, the Porsche engineers constructed a water-cooled 1131cc motor based on a racing engine that delighted Harley-Davidson’s demanding clientele both for its performance as well as its imposing sound. With a DOHC valvetrain and electronically controlled fuel injection, the VRSC-series Harley with its four-valve engine put out up to 120hp.” Porsche fans will note the gauges, which are very similar in style to what you’d find in the also liquid-cooled 996.
The seller of this example (VIN: 1HD1HHH37EC804276) acquired it two years ago.
He has covered approximately 800 miles on it – the odometer now shows 7,846 miles.
We note two cosmetic issues: scratches on the top exhaust silencer and wear on the clutch master cylinder.
