Italian XR1200


"Harley-Davidson Italy is considering a one-make race series for the XR1200, commissioning this one-off special for the purposes of track testing and to evaluate interest in the series. We don’t know about the Italians, but we’re interested.
This Harley-Davidson XR1200 is fitted with a tasty retro-inspired front numberplate, twin Öhlins shocks, a Termignoni shotgun exhaust specifically designed for the bike, wavy brakes, uprated forks, a flat-track-style single-seat, and sporty Dunlops. We can’t imagine writing that last sentence about any other Harley, and that’s the point. Why, oh why can’t we buy a Harley that handles here in the good ol’ USA? If that isn’t anti-American, we don’t know what is."
