According to MCN the Vrod does an 11.38 quarter, the GL1800 a 12.16. I'm amazed that a full boat tourer comes that close to a motor with a frame and wheels. This is really an apples to oranges comparison.kperson said:I spent a week in Hawaii this Spring, and rented a V-Rod for a half day to scratch the motorcycle itch and simultaneously see for myself what the hubbub was about.
I had no clue that a 2-cylinder bike could pull like that. Truly jaw-dropping. This was the stock config, I bet a hopped-up Revolution motor would be amazing. I'd agree with RodeHard's comment that the wind blast is pretty brutal once you get up to triple digits. But it sure is fun getting there.
