2004 Harley Davidson VRSC Range
VRSCA | VRSCB
Long, menacing, and very, very bad. The VRSCB
V-Rod is the newest power cruiser from Harley-Davidson.
Based on the award winning VRSCA V-Rod but
setting its own agenda, the VRSCB VRod has
a tougher presence that will appeal to the
traditionalist with an interest in performance.
The VRSCA V-Rod and VRSCB V-Rod are almost
identical mechanically. Power comes from Harley-Davidson's
first liquid-cooled V-twin. The Revolution
engine is a 60-degree V of 1,130cc. Revving
to 9,000 rpm, it is fuel injected, with double
overhead cams. Power output is 115 hp with
105.0 NM of torque at 6600 rpm.
Both VRSC models offer an unmatched blend
of classic Harley-Davidson style, road-burning
performance and cutting-edge technology. The
bodywork is aluminium. The disc wheels and
a 38-degree fork could be straight off a dragster.
The tubular, hydroformed chassis is stiff,
strong and beautiful. The VRSCA and VRSCB
also share several mechanical changes for
2004. The instrument cluster receives several
upgrades. The speedometer maximum speed is
changed from 140 mph to 150 mph (220 kph to
240 kph) to more accurately reflect the top-end
power of the Revolution engine. The odometer
reading can now be accessed with the ignition
off by simply pressing and releasing the "trip"
