I loved the cruise option that the XR and XC have. Yes the Vrod will never have that. However I was unable to see what other features come standard, and what features are available.
The link to the PDF file posted above shows you the standard features of each bike model.
For available options, navigate on the Victory website
to the model you're interested in, then click the "CUSTOMIZE" button. You will have to create an account (e-mail/password) if you don't have one, and once you log in, you will be able to see all the options for each specific model. You can add them to the bike, see what the bike looks like with them on, and see how much the options cost.
The VRod is an awesome machine. I have considered a VRod Muscle myself. It was the looks of it and engine performance that got me interested at first. What I did not like about the VRod was having the spread your legs to touch the ground (due to the wide exhaust setup), and the suspension travel takes any touring possibilities out of the equation. The biggest shock absorber on the the VRod ends up being your spine. I sure loved the looks of the fat rear tire, but once you realize how hard you have to work to lean that bike the rear tire becomes a negative for some (me included).
Be aware, as KevinX pointed out, you're comparing apples and oranges. The VRod is somewhat of a sports bike / cruiser, while the Cross bikes are somewhat of a cruiser / touring. They fit in very different categories. Make sure you test ride both, and end up with the bike that best fits your needs.
If you're into what the VRod has to offer, make sure you look at the Victory Hammer. Here's a section, including video, comparing the VRod and the Hammer: http://www.polarisindustries.com/en-...AMMER_VS_V-ROD
