2009 Harley Davidson VRSC Range

Three Liquid-Cooled VRSC Models on 240mm Rear Rubber for 2009

With sculpted bodywork wrapped around a powerful new physique, the 2009 VRSCF V-Rod Muscle™ rides its way onto the power cruiser scene with a broad-shouldered presence. Gaping broad-shouldered air scoops, large volume dual exhaust and a huge 240mm rear tyre spinning under a clean, clipped fender offer a contemporary, blend of style and performance.

The Muscle pushes the Harley-Davidson VRSC platform onto new turf, where it aims to hold its ground. This brawny new model will be available in Europe at the end of 2008. The Muscle joins the VRSCAW V-Rod and the VRSCDX Night Rod Special in the 2009 Harley-Davidson VRSC line-up. Each is powered by the Revolution liquid-cooled engine. All VRSC models also feature a fat, 240mm rear tyre, high-performance Brembo triple-disc brakes with ABS as standard, and a race-bred clutch with “slipper” action that helps smooth the transmission during rapid downshifting. A long, low profile inspired by the drag strip and the free-revving performance of the Revolution engine give each VRSC model an unmatched combination of style and performance.

VRSC Key Features

  • 1250cc Revolution engine: Standard on all 2009 VRSC models, the 60-degree, 1250cc Revolution engine is liquid-cooled and features Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI), dual overhead cams, four-valve heads, and five-speed transmission. The engine is rubber-mounted in a hydroformed steel perimeter frame. A steel shell covers the large-volume airbox located over the engine. A 18.9 litre fuel tank is located below the seat on all VRSC models. The engine is tuned to produce up to 123 hp at 8000 rpm and up to 85 ft-lbs. / 115 Nm of torque
  • Standard ABS: Each VRSC model is now fitted with a sophisticated Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS). Designed to work in conjunction with high-performance Brembo triple-disc brakes, this is the most advanced braking system offered on any power cruiser. ABS is designed to help the rider maintain control during braking events, especially those that happen in less-than-optimal conditions. The components of the Harley-Davidson ABS have been designed and packaged to be virtually invisible, preserving the uncluttered styling of the area around the wheels. Unlike many motorcycle ABS, Harley-Davidson ABS is not a linked system, meaning the rider maintains full, independent control of both front and rear brakes.
