A friend of mine is a lead engineer at HD in Milwakee. He explained the whole thing to me. SOmething about a kit that is only made for racing purposes. I beleive they stopped producing them. I can't remember what the hell he said cause I was half drunk and could care less about what HD is trying to do
a few years ago (2001) i read in Guiness records that the hayabusa was the fastest mass produced "vehicle" available to the public. i would guess its the zx14 if its supposed to be mass produced and readily available for sale.
i was cruisin home one night from a ride and come up next to a vrod that had every screamin eagle product on it... this thing was fast and actually kept up with me through all the gears, i was really surprised at how fast it was...
This site says it can run less than 10 sec in the 1/4 mile. I think I remember them running about 9.60 sec. They’re a little pricey though, you won’t see too many of them out side of a Harley Dealership.
I rented a v-rod a couple of years ago and smoked my buddies 94' gsxr750 on it. twice. I heard that the destroyer v-rod runs 9.4 to 9.6 but I can't find the actual 1/4 mile times. The zx-14 runs 9.68 according to sportrider. So from what I hear, yes, the harley is the world's fastest bike to roll off of a production line. Like I said though, I can't find a documented official 1/4 mile time for it. I'm a motorcycle fanatic, I'm no kawanazi. The v-rod is the bike for me and the wife to go 2 up on and still smoke the occasional 600cc sportbike. Not to mention, females will practically jump out of their cars and on the back of the rod at every stop light. More so than on the ninja by far. It just can't corner for shit though. I'll keep looking for that 1/4 mile time, I want to know which bike does the 1/4 faster.
