If you step in for a closer look, you'll discover further changes. The most prominent is the massive triple clamp, which reduces rake, changes the offset forks' angle and also provides a much more rigid grip on the legs. The instruments are set atop a pedestal similar to the V-Rod's, but their faces, especially the tach's, are much more readable. The ignition lock, set on the right side under the seat, where it also serves as a seat lock on the V-Rod, has been moved forward between the engine and triple clamp and allows you to remove the key after it's turned on. The saddle, which you still must flip up to reach the fuel filler, is held down by grommets and the passenger grabstrap instead of a lock. No key is needed to reach the tank, which now holds 5.0 gallons (compared to the V-Rod's 3.7). The underseat section of the frame has been expanded to accommodate the added fuel. The brakes are Brembos, a first for Harley streetbikes, and each caliper's four pistons squeeze discs that are 0.3 inches bigger than the V-Rod's. The front brake offers more power with less pressure than the V-Rod's, making hard stops effortless with excellent control.
