World Superbikes star at Warr's

Warr’s Harley-Davidson was delighted to present World Superbike Championship ace Shane ‘Shakey’ Byrne with his new Harley-Davidson motorcycle last week. The London-born racer collected a VRSC™ Night Rod Special, which was customised by experts at the famous King’s Road dealership.

Equipped with a 1250cc liquid-cooled Revolution V-Twin engine, the Night Rod Special is an exhilarating combination of style and power. The 2008 British Superbike Champion was thrilled to collect his new motorcycle, which belongs to the Harley-Davidson VRSC™ range, inspired by the brand’s rich racing experience.

"Out on the track, I’m focused on chasing that last tenth of a second or the race win. On the road, I want to kick back in style, totally relax and just enjoy myself.” said Shakey

Warr's boss John Warr says: “Shakey fell in love with the Night Rod Special after using the demo model a few months ago. We installed a black ceramic Rinehart 2-into-1 performance exhaust system along with a Hi-Flow air filter. A custom calibration for fuelling was achieved using a Screamin' Eagle/Warr's Racing Pro Super Tuner. For the final Dark Custom touch, we added smoked turn signal lenses, and black handlebars and control levers.

“I tend to think he’ll be back for new foot pegs way before the first service and no doubt we will be customising further.”
