The XR1200 by Harley-Davidson Makes American Debut

The XR1200 by Harley-Davidson was initially designed and launched only in European markets in April 2008. With the high degree of interest and passionate reception surrounding the bike's European release, as well as demand from Harley riders and competitive brand owners alike, the XR1200 is now being launched in all markets.

According to Harley-Davidson XR1200 draws styling influences from the successful Harley-Davidson XR-750 motorcycles that set new standards for dirt track racing success over the last 30 years. The XR1200 features technical innovation to provide potent street performance and handling. In fact, Harley-Davidson dirt track racing legends Scott Parker and Rich King participated in the XR1200 development.

"The XR1200 is an exciting motorcycle with an aggressive attitude," said Bill Davidson, Harley-Davidson Vice President, Core Customer Marketing. "This bike will provide the performance and distinct style demanded by uncompromising riders. In fact, hundreds of XR1200s were ordered by enthusiastic customers before we really even promoted it."

The successful dirt track legacy continues today as Harley factory rider Kenny Coolbeth won his third straight AMA Grand National Twins flat track championship on the XR-750 in 2008. While distinctive racing paint and graphics on the XR1200 will catch the eye, Harley-Davidson racing tradition and influence are clearly evident in the bike's key features, design and style.

The 1200 cc Evolution V-Twin engine with its high 10.0:1 compression ratio, performance cams, downdraft fuel injection, precision-cooled cylinder heads and large capacity oil cooler cranks out 90 hp with high torque. Rubber mounted to a new frame with a cast aluminum swingarm, the engine delivers exhilarating performance and responsive handling with less vibration. A unique upswept, high-volume 2-1-2 straight shot exhaust system includes dual mufflers and is finished in satin chrome.

pretty much all cruisers and most standard bikes are at least 500 pounds/230 kilos. it's the same weight as a 1200 sportster, only about 45 lbs more than a triumph thruxton. it's not an overly heavy bike.
