2013 Harley Davidson Night Rod Special Review and Specifications

2013 Harley Davidson Night Rod Special

The Harley Davidson Night Rod Special features a tapered tail section, lighter-weight wheels, and improved ergonomics with reduced reach to both the rider foot pegs and handlebar. Inverted front forks and returned rear suspension enhance ride and handling. This is a blacked-out, dark and sinister power cruiser that’s at home in a back alley.

The 2013 Harley Davidson Night Rod Special motorcycle proves that a performance exhaust can still be a beautiful set of pipes. The double-barrel exhaust features brushed finish dual mufflers, black end caps and exhaust shields. Performance and bold style erupt with every crack of the throttle.Behold an ultra-fat, 240mm rear tire for a powerful, no-nonsense look and added grip. Harnessing explosive, off-the-line power, the rear tire on the Harley Davidson Night Rod Special motorcycle enhances the pure dragster look with the sticky, high-performance tread you need for staying glued to the pavement.

2013 Harley Davidson Night Rod Special


Every inch of a Harley Davidson motorcycle is created to sync up with the bike’s overall look and performance. The 2013 Harley Davidson Night Rod Special is no exception. As our very first liquid-cooled rides, we turned to styling to make sure the radiator on the V-Rod models became part of the design instead of an interruption to the flow of the eye.
