Roland Sands “didn’t do much” on this Harley-Davidson NightRod, just the essentials. As we all crave for more power in whatever motorcycle we ride, RSD opted for a subtle “turbo” upgrade that boosts the power to a usable 160hp and god knows how much torque. The stock swing arm was changed for a single-sided one and a chain drive replaces the stock belt. The suspension is just a simple case of swapping the front forks for Ohlins Road & Track units and rear shock for a TTX unit.
Massive Dunlop tires keep the bike planted at speeds; the rear sets are pushed back to allow the knee-tank grip position, while the dashboard actively becomes your iPhone, reading out all the relevant data and presenting them through the Gaugeface app. On the drag strip or on a HollyWood boulevard – this bike shines all the way.
