Destroyer Street Version?
« on: March 01, 2011, 09:30:21 AM »

Was there a street version of the Destroyer made in 2007?  Saw a video on youtube from a dealer in dallas.  Claims it was a street version, had a "numbered engine", # 246/1400?  Is this a real bike?

NOPE!!  There was NO street Destroyer!!  

The Destroyer was a Harley-Davidson factory purpose built Drag Bike that can turn in the mid nines or lower right out of the factory box.

There were only 625 of them built in 2006 and it is doubtful we'll ever see similiar ones built in the future by Harley.


There is/was a similiarly painted stock V-Rod a VRSCX produced in limited quantities and modeled after the Vance and Hines NHRA V-ROD Drag Bikes in 2007 but no where near the performance.

I assume it would be possible to take the engine out of a Destroyer and put it in a "stock" Vrod, but I'm not sure I'd want to ride it... :nervous:  It would certainly be a handful to control on the street, since it's basically designed to run at WOT for <10 seconds.  Have you ever HEARD a Destroyer run?  They have one at the Barber Sports Museum here in Birmingham, AL, and will start it for the visitors on occasion.  It is one wicked a$$ed motor...I'm sure it would be a blast to drive (on a dragstrip), but I'd probably chit my pants at the same time...

ENGINE SWAP--NOPE on the engine swap. The motor runs on race fuel and will be severely damaged if you put even hightest in it the way it is configured for the track.


EVER HEARD ONE RUN--Yes many times. There will be a lot of them at the Orlando Speedway AHDRA spring drag races during Bike Week.

There will be some great races starting Friday and ending Sunday.

Come on down the weather is ----wait for it......75 degrees AND NO SNOW!!

Maybe next year, Jerry.  I've haven't been to Daytona since I was a wee little boy.  However, my BSR's brother lives in Boca Raton, so we have an excuse to travel down in that direction next year   :2vrolijk_21:

If you're ever up this way, or just passing through, be sure and check out the Barber Museum...4 stories of every kind of motorcycle imaginable, and some you can't even imagine.  They have a state of the art machine shop to fabricate the parts they can't restore on the old bikes.  The place is unreal, plus they have the AMA Superbike races there every spring, and now the Indy type cars as well.  World class track...

I found the video on you tube where the dealer claims it's the street version.



I think he's mis-informed.

Except, last time I saw a pic of Jorge's bike, it was mostly chrome... :2vrolijk_21:

It seems that I do recall that those models were numbered though, but certainly not the engine, as it was just a regular 1250CC Revolution.

How stoopid can a dealer be to not know the difference between that bike and a real Destroyer...the big A$$ed, 5 foot long wheely bar on the back end would be the first clue... ::)

I think the dealer has an uneducated sales person trying to sell products they don't know anything about.
