2008 Harley Davidson XR 1200: It’s on!

Not just the coolest Harley, the XR 1200 is one of the coolest, most stylish bikes anywhere, ever

The flat tracker-style XR 1200 is one of the best looking Harley-Davidson prototypes ever and the good news is, Harley have finally decided they’re going to put the bike into production. The XR 1200 will hit showrooms by mid-2008 and H-D expect the bike to do very well in not only the US but also Europe. The bike is not likely to cost more than US$16-17,000 which is definitely a good thing.

The XR 1200. Coming to a showroom near you in 2008...

Powered by an air-cooled, fuel-injected 1200cc v-twin, the XR 1200 is not likely to offer outstanding speed or acceleration but in terms of style, we think the bike may be hard to beat. It really is very, very cool. Other details available at this time are twin-shock rear suspension, belt drive, 43mm Showa USD front forks, Nissin disc brakes at the front, and Dunlop Qualifier tyres – 120/70ZR18 (front) and 180/55ZR17 (rear). More details, pics and video on Harley’s XR 1200 minisite here.
