The black and gold color scheme looks better up close than in this photo of the 2008 Harley-Davidson VRSC V-Rod Anniversary Edition.
Chrome slash cut exhaust with dual mufflers emit a healthy growl from the more powerful 1250cc Revolution V-Twin.
The engines on the V-Rod have received a boost in displacement and horsepower.
2008 Harley-Davidson Night Rod Special
For 2008, the Sportster logo will no longer adorn the signature peanut tank. The H-D namesake will instead label all new Sportsters to avoid any confusion about whom the bike is made by.

2008 Harley-Davidson XL1200N Nightster
As the sun sets on the city, the retro-rod styling of the 2008 Harley-Davidson XL1200N Nightster is ready to burn up some pavement.
The '08 Road Glide has a new Brembo triple-disc brake system, an electronic throttle control system and a bigger tank.
The 2008 FLTR Road Glide features an aerodynamic 'shark nose' frame-mounted fairing that reduces weight on the fork and handlebar.
Dual four-inch headlamps and the Fat Bob's iconic fuel tank shape make the '08 Dyna Fat Bob easily recognizable.
The solid 16-inch cast aluminum slotted disc wheels were a good pick for the Fat Bob's chunky front tires.
The 2008 Harley-Davidson FXDF Dyna Fat Bob is the newest member of the Dyna family.
The '08 Fat Bob is the first of the Dyna family to run on a big 130mm front tire on16-inch by 3.5-inch slotted cast aluminum wheel.
The Rocker C has a more polished, bling look than its sibling the Rocker.
The position of the 2008 Rocker's forward controls and independent V-Bar handlebar put the rider in a fists-forward position.
The Rocker is ready for riders who want to lead the rock-n-roll lifestyle.
With a stretched-out rake, a long 69.2-inch wheelbase and a fatty rear tire, the Rocker has styling cues that appeal to custom riders.
Harley-Davidson looks to cash in on the custom craze with its own custom-styled Rocker. Even the name appeals to a younger demographic.
The Rockertail rear end is styled like a hard tail and rides fairly rigid as well.
I kept expecting Malakai to pop out of the corn rows and chase me down the rode but all we experienced during our photo shoot was a couple of curious farmers.
The riding ergos aboard the '08 Rocker C gave my arms a good workout.
Despite its 36.5 inch fork angle and 240mm rear tire, the Rocker C flowed well through the turns I encountered.
Almost all of the Satin Stainless metallic powdercoat components of the Rocker has received a healthy dose of chrome in the Rocker C.
The Rocker C's frame is custom color-matched to the bodywork. Flame on.
Lost and loving it. I wondered if anybody from H-D noticed that I was out gallavanting through the Maryland countryside on their latest $20k machine.
A Harley rep demonstates the ease of attaching the small passenger pillion of the 2008 Rocker C.
No tools are needed to deploy the strut for the pillion.
The pillion seat tucks away neatly beneath the primary saddle.
It looks like a solo seat, but the Trick pops up easily when it's time to ride two-up.
Styled to look like a hard tail, the Rockers have a modern suspension with two short shocks hidden beneath the powertrain.
The Trick seat of the Rocker C takes about ten seconds to pop out and put on.
The Rocker C has H-D's Twin Cam 96B powerplant at the heart of it and had plenty of torque throughout the powerband.
The speedo on the 2008 Rocker C is raised up instead of sitting flush on the console and was much easier to read than tank-mounted jobs on H-D's older models.
The 19-inch front wheel on the Rocker has five tapered spokes and has a satin stainless metallic powdercoat.
OK, maybe a corn field in agricultural Pennsylvania isn't the best place to shoot pics of such an industrial-looking bike, but the Night Rod Special looks hot no matter where you ride it.
With an all-black engine and blacked out components including the fork legs and swingarm, the 2008 Harley-Davidson Night Rod Special encourages the outlaw in you.
The VRSC's have a new slipper clutch and a bigger engine to go along with H-D's optional ABS.
The 2008 XL 1200C Anniversary Edition is a limited-production, serialized run.
Though we were tempted to go ripping through cornfields on the 2008 Harley-Davidson XL 1200N Nightster, better judgment prevailed and we suppressed our wanton thoughts.
The 2008 Harley-Davidson Rocker C with leather saddlebags gave me a little cargo space and a small front windshield saved me from smashing too many bugs with my face.
The 2008 Harley-Davidson Fat Bob
Good thing for outriggers. Without the ABS engaged, H-D's test rider would have high-sided for sure.
