Hear is why I choose those 2 to decide between. I wanted three basic features in my next bike. 1-belt/shaft drive=low maint, 2-fuel INJ=better in cold & mileage, 3-Liguid cooled=comfort on hot riding days. With requirement like that, the list of eligible late model bikes under $11,000 becomes limited. Yes, Yamaha's new cruiser did fit the bill but I refuse to buy the first production year of any motorized vehicle. First let me say I love this bike. It fits my style and I have always told my friends that the only Harley I like enough to buy is the V-Rod. And it was my budget that allowed me to get this bike instead of the VTX1800. So after one year of learning to ride on a 2004 Suzuki SV650 I upgraded. After 3 weeks the farthest traveled on one trip is about 150 miles, passenger included. The bike is not without flaws but what bike isn't? Wind drift due to the solid front rim is apparent but not as bad as people have led me to believe. Basically don't try riding next to other riders above 45MPH until you are comfortable with the bike. Drifting was only in my own lane, and I have ridden my new/used V-Rod in some pretty high winds on open country back-roads where gusting is frequent. Next was fuel mileage. I am getting about 120 to a tank. But I do not intend to ride 500 miles in one day; one tank worth of riding is a good day by me and my women. Its power band does not kick until 4000RPM's but watch out when you find it. It's actually kind of cool because the lazy response makes low speed cruising more rumbly and comfortable, and to get the power you only need to drop 2 and twist. Again I love this bike, and by adding the usual accessories: tall boy seats recommended for riders close to 6' or taller, straight pipes for better sound, EFI power commander ($300+) required on all EFI's when pipes are upgraded for fuel mapping I KNOW IT SUCKS, & removable bags for those longer rides, it will be everything I need and more... Notes on the VTX1800F I compared Even though it is a much larger engine it actually has slightly less power, you've got to love Porsche for designing that great V-Rod 1130cc engine. The VTX was much heavier about 100lbs and it felt much heavier when it was upright. Last, when riding both bikes courtesy of my brother-in-law's VTX1300C=same frame as VTX1800 with just a smaller block, it surprised me that I felt much smaller on the VTX. Even he said he felt considerably bigger on the Vrod. Hope this helps.

Just sitting on an '06 Vrod at the Chicago show told me this was the bike for me. Highly manueverable, light, and lickity split fast, this bike is a blast. I have not ridden in 15 years, and technically, this is my first bike. I have no problem handling this bike although, while riding on the expressway, you do need to hang on to the front end - you get a bit of drift/draft with the full disc wheels (stock). Only negative is that my back gets a little sore with the stock seat after a few hours, and sure do wish that gas tank held 5.

My seventh bike and it's great. If I could have sent a wish list to Harley it would've been a V-rod. A powerful cruiser that loves to to perform. A little buffeting around trucks, but hey it keeps you awake. Harley has entered a new era in style and performance. The V-rod is probably not a good choice for a first time rider. Maybe it is I don't really know, I'm just saying that because I think I would have had trouble but I was a TERRIBLE first time rider.

H-D & Porsche Engineering have designed an excellent performance cruiser. Bike is powerful, light, easy handling, superb looks and simply a blast to ride. Perfect bike for solo riding locally. I will continue using my Valkyrie Interstate for long rides. I now have the best of both worlds; cruising and touring with unique style in both bikes.

My name is Bronson Bryker. I am 19 years old and I got a V-Rod for my High School Graduation present. When I get on that thing and twist the throttle all my troubles are behind me. Excellent in cornering and maneuvering. It's just a blast to ride. Anyway, just letting you guys know if you're considering buying a bike think about a V-Rod, it's worth every penny. Have fun and ride safe.

This bike is too beautiful for words. It is an experience to own one. I love my V-ROD. I don't mind the stops for gas every 100 miles as much of my driving is in the city and on interstates. I customized the bike for my 5'6" frame by adding the reduce reach handlebars and foot pegs. I exchanged the seat for a Corbin dual touring saddle with the backrest. I have taken the bike out for several 250 mile cruises and I love it. The V-ROD is smooth, high tech, and sensual. It gets the attention like a beautiful woman. But it is a man's machine but genteel. I like the quiet sound, so un-Harley like. If you want loud pipes, you have many choices. One word of caution, make sure your passenger watches out for the stock exhaust pipes which are very hot and very close. This, too, can be changed if you choose. In fact, like most Harleys, you can change just about whatever you want. Is this bike worth the money? I say, absolutely.
