    Another bike gone...

    Just read that the V-Rod is being phased out. Speculation is that Harley will re-use the motor in another new model but time will tell.
    I liked the looks of the Night Rod but never did get the chance to ride one..

    Can't see them doing away with that engine. V Rod sales weren't as good as what they thought I don't think.

    The way Harley keeps loosing money, they have to keep re inventing to try to make sales. Great bikes but way over priced.

    Yeah, they are crazy over priced plus some of the styling they use now are not pointed at the age group that actually has the money to buy them. I was hoping that the 2018 CVO Street Glide would blow my socks off this year but it was underwhelming to say the least.

    The Dyna has also gone the way of the Dodo.

    They need to put that motor in a touring frame with shaft drive!

    In name only. Technically, it's dead.

    Same as my FXR. It's labeled a Low Rider, but they don't make FXR's anymore.
