Just 4300 miles, like new over $26000 new.
This bike is seriously like new, a credit to its former owner.
It is the rare and expensive CVO (Custom Vehicle Operations) model costing over $26000 in 2005.
Very distinctive in its Pearl orange and custom paint plus lashings of chrome everywhere and added and rare luggage rack/sissy bar combo.
Fitted with the 1250cc factory Screamin’ Eagle motor, this bike hauls ass big time.
Theres not much to say about the V-Rod that was designed by Porsche in collaboration with Harley-Davidson that has not been already written. A bike before its time and misunderstood by the traditional H-D crowd this are diamonds in the rough and have to be ridden to appreciate what they achieve. Now rapidly gaining a cult following since discontinuation as a riders machine plus a stunning work of art.

VRSCSE Screamin’ Eagle V-Rod
The V-Rod’s execution was so spot-on when it debuted just three years ago that the thought of tinkering with it was anathema to most. Although H-D’s design team replaced the outdated 140 mph speedometers with new and improved 150 mph speedometers, (thereby making the bike 10 mph faster in the eyes of countless loyalists) little else has changed.
Even the various paint schemes released in subsequent years have yet to really improve upon the distinctive elegance of the initial brushed aluminum offering, suggesting the best thing Messrs. Harley and Davidson have done for the V-Rod is to leave it alone. Until now. Remarkably, the CVO unit has managed to take a bike that was already rated a “10” and turn it into an “11.”
For $25,495 the V-Rod has received a 10 percent boost in torque and horsepower, courtesy of a 1250cc Screamin’ Eagle “big-bore” version of the standard 1130cc liquid-cooled, fuel-injected 60-degree Revolution V-Twin engine. New pistons throb inside CNC-ported cylinder heads for superior intake and exhaust flow, and cam timing has been performance optimized.
Aside from giving the power cruiser a new seat and a chrome bath, the most significant cosmetic alteration is the replacement of the V-Rod’s signature disc wheels with chromed forged-aluminum five-spokers. This has the added benefit of reducing the disconcerting lean angles caused by occasional crosswinds acting on the solid discs.
