The Vrod is a power cruiser . You dont have to be worried about being a Harley doosh because most Harley riders hate VRods and their owners. It isnt a Harley either it was devoloped with Porche as I remember.
Tank milage wasnt enough for me tbh and it isnt British otherwise Id have one instead of the TBird. Dont know about handleing but Im told they are not that bad but not as sharp as the TBird. Power though the VRod will rip the TBird a new arse top end.
Great bike really. Best bike Harley never made. IMHO of course.
