VRSCDX Night Rod Special

An all-black Revolution engine, fork legs, swingarm and other blacked-out components give the VRSCDX Night Rod Special a raw, street-tough attitude. A colour-matched nacelle surrounds a round reflector-optic headlight. The straight-shot dual mufflers have black end caps and heat shields. Drag handlebars and forward foot controls put the rider in an aggressive clam-shell riding posture. A contrasting racing stripe paint scheme traces the length of the bike. Black slotted cast aluminium wheels have a fine orange stripe on the rim. Available in Black Denim with Vivid Black Racing Stripe, Vivid Black with Pewter Pearl Racing Stripe, or Vivid Black with Mirage Orange Pearl Racing Stripe.
