Harley Davidson XR 1200 X is one of the novelties for the 2012 American House, who wanted a motorcycle very boost, with custom contemporary style, half way between la sportiva and the cruiser, with a tail from road bikes and a front instead. We will see what will be the response of the market, this hybrid aesthetics.
The engine is always based on Evolution with components, cylinder heads and aluminum to reduce weight. Air-cooled, 1202 cc, has a beautiful black dress, worst, Harley style. Now established the electronic fuel injection on all its models, this engine consumes 5.3 liters/100 km, with a 13.3 litres tank, and in the name of the road line features the Harley 6 speed gearbox, but waiving cardan transmission chain.
Two exhausts, high as a super sport, colored entirely opaque, black pyrite as the rest of the bike, which aesthetically forgoes chrome to give herself an air all dark. Also unusual, off the handlebar in racing style, but with a rather essential instrumentation and custom style, gaunt with analog tachometer and other data in digital footprint, all about two small circular dials. Intuitive controls and ergonometry.
The total weight of 250 kg, with light alloy rims with three races. Front brake twin floating disk four-piston caliper and, while the rear brake is the classic fixed plate.
Overall a very well made, easy to use, but with a style unusual for Harley.
