I believe that's the HD model that raced the Daytona 200. Never was fast enough or reliable enough.

Instead some crazy bastard (SR) on a Kawasaki crashed on the first lap but got back up and won. That was so great ... I know, I've mentioned it before, probably will again

My local Suzuki dealer had two them on the showroom floor.
If you look at the engine, you can see where the V-Rod design originated from.
This was also the engine that Erik Buell was hoping to use on his future bikes.
But as they say, the rest is history.
