The Street Rod makes for an interesting ride -The conventional foot pegs are IMO a plus point, over the forward controls of the V-Rod.
The engine is a revelation and the example I rode had faultless fuelling and good power and torque.
The VSCR range was intended to wean bikers from other brands onto a more refined HD with performance to be proud of.
Let's be clear: this bike will NOT blow a sports bike into the weeds, in any situation other than perhaps with its great stability and composure off the line.
The long wheelbase is a boon at the traffic light GP!
That same wheelbase adds to the planted, but slow-witted handling on the open road - It does corner; just don't ask it to change direction in a hurry.
Street Rod has some nice detailing (I like the brake callipers!) and a real solidity.
As any with Harley the bike needs some after-market pipes, like 'Jordan' needs the tabloids.
The instruments were out of my sight line and on a free-revving machine like this: it is frustrating not to see the rev-counter centre stage.
Reckon that the designers were eating 'Star-Bursts' when selecting colours for the Street Rod: Orange and Lemon (Yellow!) being two prominent offerings.
These suit the bikes lines -oddly black wouldn't be the obvious choice for this bike's lines.
Overall an appealing bike and to those luddites that say 'Its not a proper Harley': Didn't they said that when fuel injection was introduced to the HD range....
