Its definitely a cruiser, when I saw it I fell in love, when I rode one it changed my hole perspective on the cruiser thing, so I did what anyone who was madly in love and bought it as my second bike. I still have a lot of love for riding my Busa, but the V-Rod is a great alternative from time to time. Just my

Definetly a cruiser, my friend has one and scraped the exhaust in a corner the second day he got it. If we go riding, I have to stop and wait for him to catch up. I rode it and it has some good torque, but I just dont like the forward peg thing, but fun for a cruiser.

yeah my neighbor i ride with bought one brand new last year, custom paint and all, and its really really sweet. but i tear him up with my rf900, but still for a harley its real fast. he also gets compliments on it all the time, we went to a blessing of the bikes and a bunch of people were checkin our bikes out, cause i was the only sportbike there and he was the only v-rod. all in all its a sweet bike, but i would never call it a sportbike.

V-Rod a Sportbike

If you were to decorate a torture chamber, what sort of wallpaper would you use?


No the V-Rod is not a sportbike.

Not a sportbike: kind of like a lame V-Max.

Some sportsters I've seen come a lot closer to being an HD sportbike than the V-rod.

you hog haters are going to love this! 2 weeks ago my buddy bought a nightrod,so naturally we went for a cruise around town.I rode my triumph speed 4(which is a real head turner).anyway we stop at a red light and these kids pull up next to us, dont even look at this state of art hog,and rave about my trump.I could tell my friend was not happy.next we stopped at a biker bar,all harleys out side.soon as these pig farmers,i mean harley owners put the letters together and realized t-r-i-u-m-p-h,didnt spell honda,all eyes turned away from the rod to my bike.this didnt go well with my friend.few beers later it finally got to him,he turned and said,G.damnit!I could of bought 3 of those
fricken bikes for what i paid!

I watched something on discovery on the vrod, I actually sorta like em - for a cruiser - HD definitely stepped it up for this bike and put some thought and power into it and didnt drag their old crap into it. At least thats what I got from the show...but maybe they were biased =P I'd have to ask riders of it, or ride it myself to have a sound opinion of it.
