Let's just hope when someone buys a V-Rod, the Harley attitude is sold seperately.....

The V Rod has overhead cams. The only similarity to a sportbike.
Now the 02 Yamaha Road Warrior has R1 forks, R1 front brakes, aluminum frame, fuel injection, aluminum rims and......
Much more sportbike stuff on this muscle cruiser. Prostar is even running a muscle cruiser class for 2002. Not to mention Yamaha offers a hop up kit to push the hp over 100. When the day comes for me to ride a motorcycle where my knees don't touch my elbows it will be a bike like the Warrior <-----(cool name too).

Sportbike? NO
Motorcycle? Barely, after all it's a Harley.

Talking

Drop about 400 lbs, shorten the wheelbase, and it might qualify....

In the mean time every legitimate sportbike especially the repli-racer rice burners will blow the mirrors off it anywhere...

And for around $20,000:
