The Night Rod Special is an awesome bike, it differs from other harleys as it is water cooled with a short stroke as opposed to air cooled and long stroke on all other harleys.
The Night Rod will leave all other harleys standing, the engine has to be revved and redlines at 9000 rpm.
It has 150mph on the clock and will probably do this but you will not manage to hold on in the wind stream at around 130mph and 7000rpm you wont manage to keep your feet on the pegs, it has a very powerful engine designed by Porsche, an excellent frame, Brembo brakes which are good, Dunlop D07 tyres which are not good and should be replaced with Avon Cobras or Pirelli dragons.
The standard suspension is very poor and should be replaced with aftermarket
suspension, the front is extremely soft
