I still have my 2008 105th Anniversary V-Rod.  Bulletproof, it's my 'go-to' bike when the CVO bagger is in the shop.

2012 Night Rod Special here. Love the bike. I told myself i would not turn it into a bagger, wanted a stripped down toy. but currently in the process of installing FLH bags. Have also told myself i would not install a RG fairing so far i haven't really considered it. hahaha. The revo motor is great just not enough torque produced in its current trim, but it's not a torque motor, RPM and HP is whats its about. had to learn that for it to be happy it needs RPM'S. hahaha

For sure. They love to be spun to 9 grand. Friend has one with the Roadglide kit, I'd love to have one. The motors are solid from what I hear. Know a guy in a international club that has over 100,000 miles on his, never adjusted the valves.

Very true, have one of my freinds took one on a Demo ride and told me he did see what all the "fun" was about it. I asked him was he in a led group or by himself. he was in a led group, I laughed, he never got it over 4 grand. I let him take mine out for a spin and that changed his mind hahaha. I did install a shift light, I always seamed to be bouncing it off the rev limiter :huepfenjump3:

I would be very interested in a large displacement V-rod style motor in a CVO RG. It might be a real competitor for the Honda GW. Smooth, quiet. reliable and powerful in a true touring frame and dressing.

2013 Muscle here.  However, I'm trading it in for a CVO Road King.  I want to be able to travel a little more without pulling in for gas all the time.  Not to mention, not having a sixth gear for highway cruising.   However, it's still an awesome bike.

Considering 2017 is the last year for the V-Rod we will soon be hearing nothing but crickets here.

The Vrod is aftermarket is in Europe/Austrialia mostly(body kits, turbos, superchargers, bars etc).  so I don't think is will die as quickly as bikes like the buell support did. there are still US guys like Fitzgerald Motorsports that are Vrod parts and engine builders. Hopefully the Revo motor will make a come back in a bigger badder version in a few years. I just picked up an 2003 silver 100th anniversary edition with 12k miles, one owner, it needs a good cleaning and some basic maintenance but still screams to 9k rpms.  Might become a Rod Rod just for fun and my 2012 will get the supercharger that I want for a street beast, hahaha.
