It’s been five years since Harley-Davidson pulled the plug on its beastly V-Rod, but it’s still a popular canvas, with international reach, for mind-bending custom projects. A fitting example of this comes all the way from Poland-based Szajba’s Garage, which has put together a custom V-Rod inspired by the Ducati Panigale. Plus, it’s charged up with Nitrox to increase the crazy exponentially.


One look at the motorcycle and its aesthetics will leave you perplexed, courtesy of the mixed bag of components. For instance, the shop has removed the stock headlight and slapped on a sleeker unit borrowed from the Indian-built Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS. Similarly, the tail section comes from the previous-gen Ducati Panigale which, along with the fuel tank cover and belly pan, makes this V-Rod uber-muscular. The final touches design-wise come via the custom wheels, extra-wide rear tire, and bespoke tricolor regalia.


As impressive as the design may be, the real deal is the V-Rod’s heart. In its stock form, the V-Rod employs a 1,245cc, twin-cylinder engine that thumps out 122 horsepower. However, this has been dialed to eleven by the shop, courtesy of a full-system exhaust, and more importantly, a NOS kit. Now, we can’t give you any performance figures, but it’s not wrong to assume this can set a drag strip on fire, let alone public roads.


On the suspension front, the motorcycle bids adieu to its dual shock setup and welcomes a sportier side-mounted monoshock. This, in turn, also makes space for the Nitrox cylinder mounted on the left. Like the monoshock, the team has thrown in a single-sided swingarm alongside a Buell-inspired disc brake up front for a cleaner look.


With all this, an overhauled riding triangle is mandatory, and that’s the last piece of the puzzle. Gone is the stock handlebar and in comes a set of super-low clip-on units that pair up with a custom saddle and footpegs to create an aggressive riding triangle. Meanwhile, you’re greeted by a digital instrument cluster once you step aboard this beast.
