Oh I am sure your correct. Probly more for weight distribution being that the bikes have such power displacement to weight….. atleast in my logic it makes sense to put more weight forward to keep the front down aided by the aero-dynamics of fairing and rider. Aesthetically for me…. it just reminds me of bugs. The smaller tail….maybe a spoiler of types to catch the “curling” turbulence and get some down force on the rear tire?
V-Rod…. never have or ever will consider it a cruiser. Nor the Vmax. Muscle bikes is a category in of their own.
