    2008 Harley Davidson Night Rod Special Sport

    2008 Harley-Davidson VRSCDX/A Night Rod Special

    The VRSCDX Night Rod Special is even darker and nastier than the Night Rod. Features include drag bars and forward controls, an all-black 125-hp Revolution V-Twin engine and more blacked-out components, including the fork legs and a wide swing arm supporting a beefy 240 mm rear tire. Brushed Straight-shot Dual mufflers have black end caps and heat shields. A contrasting racing stripe paint scheme traces the length of the bike. The 25.2-inch seat height makes Night Rod Special the lowest VRSC model.

     

    NEW ON VRSC FOR 2008

    1250cc Revolution V-Twin engine: Originally designed for the CVO Screamin' Eagle V-Rod, bore is increased to 105 mm from 100 mm, boosting displacement from 1130 cc to 1250 cc. This engine is tuned to produce up to 125 hp at 8250 rpm and up to 85 ft-lbs. of torque at 7000. The 60-degree Revolution V-Twin engine is liquid-cooled and features Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI), dual overhead cams, four-valve heads, and a five-speed transmission. The engine is rubber-mounted in hydroformed steel perimeter frame. A steel shell covers the large-volume airbox. A 5-gallon fuel tank is located below the seat on all VRSC models.

    Slipper Clutch: All 2008 VRSC models have a new clutch with race-bred "slipper" action that helps mitigate drivetrain strain and rear-wheel lock-up during downshifting. Integral with the new clutch design is an assist feature that reduces clutch-lever effort by more than 20 percent.


    Optional ABS: For the first time, each VRSC model is available with optional, factory-installed Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS). Designed to work in conjunction with the high-performance Brembo brakes on all VRSC models, this is the most advanced braking system offered on any power cruiser. ABS is designed to help the rider maintain control during emergency stopping situations, especially those that happen in less than ideal conditions. The components of the Harley-Davidson ABS have been designed and packaged to be virtually invisible, preserving the clean custom styling of the area around the wheels. Unlike many motorcycle ABS, Harley-Davidson ABS is a manual, independent system, meaning the rider maintains full, independent control of how much of each brake is applied.


    105th Anniversary Edition: A limited-edition, serialized VRSCAW V-Rod 105th Anniversary Edition will be available in 2008 (see separate release for details on the 105th Anniversary package).
