Check the differences between the two bike models. The better V-Rod was just to expensive to produce at a competitive price.
I like V-Rods and if I can find a Muscle on the cheap that'll be my next purchase ! More bullet proof than a Sportster IMO !
It might be a H-D that handles (hopefully). Good sporting look in a H-D way. If they race with this motor on the flat tracks, there might be some good power opportunities on hop ups. They are claiming 68 hp stock so thats a decent starting hp.
Pipe, intake, map fender tidy... will make for a nice bike.
I added a XG750A Street Rod to the garage a couple weeks ago. Loads of fun! Just added a Vane & Hines Fuelpak 3, S&S Grand National slip on, 10MM SE plug wires, SE filter kit and modded the airbox cover. While my '06 VRSCR Street Rod is fun it is no where as nimble as this XG. I can say it will most certainly leave my '10 XR1200 in a battle.
