Rated 3 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not worth the money In order for this product to go on a night Rod you also need the luggage rack which cost another 200$. It takes away from the true look of the bike, how Harley hasn't developed a detachable seat yet is beyond me for this bike. June 22, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Cast Upright Backrest - *Required Luggage Rack (not included) The backrest requires the luggage rack to be installed on the Vrod. The backrest is perfect for keeping a rider from sliding off the back of the bike. The backrest matches the style and nature of the bike and adds a level of security for the passenger. Leaves a perfect amount of space between the passenger and rider (average size). December 29, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by I took it back The silver luggage rack is required to install the backrest on a 2014 VRSCDX. I dont want to cover up the cool looking fender and tail light with a giant luggage rack September 16, 2015

Why?

Why is it taking so long for Harley Davidson to make a simple mounting plate for the optional backrest? I think the giant, silver luggage rack that is required to install the backrest on a 2014 VRSCDX is not only ugly, but almost completely covers up the fender with the awesome looking LED tail light. Can someone please make a mounting plate so that my wife will have a back rest? Thanks!

Answer: 
Hello Panda445,

You are correct! PN 52300016 is currently the only backrest we offer for a 2012-Later VRSCDX and it does require the purchase of PN 50300028 for installation on your model.

Thank You!
