Description

IT CAME FROM THE DARK SIDE OF WHEREVER YOUR MOTHER TOLD YOU NOT TO GO.

Race-inspired detailing meets shades of black metal that would make night herself jealous. Orange pinstripes around the slotted disc wheels; 240-millimeters worth of rubber in the rear. Mesh screen covers foreshadow the kind of performance that keeps the faint of heart behind locked doors. The liquid-cooled RevolutionŽ engine gets an upgrade to 1,250-cubic-centimeters for 2008. That's 125 horses beneath your seat, harnessed via a new slipper clutch. Also new this year on all VRSC™ models: optional ABS brakes to supplement the standard BremboŽ brake setup. You've got a five-gallon fuel tank and a perimeter frame like nothing else on two wheels. The only thing outpacing the RPM’s is your heartbeat.
