Harley Davidson VRSCSE V-Rod - 2005

Harley Davidson VRSCSE V-Rod


Boosts Performance of the Harley-Davidson Power Cruiser MILWAUKEE (July 15, 2004) - The 2005 VRSCSE Screamin' Eagle V-Rod developed by the Harley-Davidson Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) team features high performance engine modifications and a host of special custom components that make this limited-edition V-Rod an even more powerful force among power-cruiser motorcycles.

The Harley-Davidson CVO program creates highly-exclusive, limited production, custom motorcycles built by skilled technicians in special assembly areas at the Harley-Davidson plants in York, Pa., and Kansas City, Mo. Approximately 2,400 examples of the 2005 Screamin' Eagle V-Rod will be manufactured at the Kansas City Vehicle and Powertrain Operations facility and only 120 will be available across Europe.

The Screamin' Eagle V-Rod is powered by a "big-bore" version of the standard liquidcooled, fuel-injected 60-degree Revolution V-Twin engine. New cylinders and matching pistons boost bore from 100mm to 105mm, and displacement from 1130cc to 1250cc. The cylinder heads are CNC ported for better air and exhaust flow, and cam timing is optimised. The result is a 10 percent increase over the standard Revolution engine, dressed with new Screamin' Eagle cylinder badges and a special Custom Vehicle Operations emblem on the clutch release cover.

Special custom features of the Screamin' Eagle V-Rod start with a choice of three exclusive colour combinations-Two-Tone Candy Blue, Two-Tone Candy Cherry, and Electric Orange and Black. Colour is applied to the airbox cover, fenders and radiators shroud. New upper and lower side covers are chrome plated. The hydroformed tubular perimeter frame receives a colour-matched powdercoat. A new airbox cover features an inset chrome console holding an LED display for the fuel gauge, indicator lights and a clock.

Controls are revised to include a new forged, chrome plated handlebar riser clamp and instrument bracket, which supports a traditional, separate Harley-Davidson speedometer and tachometer with spun-aluminium faces. The aerodynamic projector-beam headlight has a chrome shroud and bucket. New, 31.75mm-diameter handlebars feature internal wiring.

Other special components found on the Screamin' Eagle V-Rod include new chrome forged-aluminium five-spoke Reactor wheels and matching Reactor rear sprocket, new muffler end-caps, and a new custom seat and passenger pillion. Components from the Harley-Davidson Genuine Motor Parts and Genuine Motor Accessories Catalogue featured on the Screamin' Eagle V-Rod include: chrome swing arm; chrome upper belt guard and lower debris deflector; chrome hand and foot controls; coated braided stainless steel control cables, clutch and brake lines; and a chrome side stand. Each Screamin' Eagle V-Rod also includes a special CVO key and a CVO storage cover.
