Default The Official XR1200 Thread

HOLY CRAP - the rumors and recently leaked photo of a new prototype Sporty are true! (I think).

Looky here

XR1200R

aluminum swingarm, upsidedown boingers on the front, downdraft fuel injection 90hp or so. if the exhaust was not so damn ugly along with the whole gastank/air intake thing, I'd consider it. that, and the front fender needs to be lower on the tire.

More from Raptors...

Quote:
We have just attended the first press conference at the 2006 Intermot in Cologne. Harley-Davidson showed a new XR 1200 based on the air-cooled Sportster 1200 engine. New is down draft fuel injection, chassis, sporty pipes and loads of ground clearance. performance are between 85-90bhp and around 75ftlb according to Harley-Davidson. The bike also gets an electronically controlled active air intake system. All in ode to the XR 750 flat tracker. More info later.

I actually like the new look. It has the cafe style many are looking for. I will have to keep my eye on it and who knows, the next deployment I might end up getting another bike for the stable.

I will be the first decenter and say the backend is ugly. Don't like the seat section. It is toooooooo blocky and looks a lot like a mid 90's speed triple backend. Hate it.

I'll admit that when I saw the spy shots last week, the backend was my lease favorite part. But I'm not sure stylisitcally how one would clean that up.

I think I could live with it.

But I'm anxiously awaiting more pics and info.

I'll say this, I'm MUCH more excited about this than I was the XL 50 "paint n' badges" edition.

Oh man, it's taken from the classic XR flattrackers. I LOVE the tailpiece, the upswept exhaust, reasets, and inverted fork.

If this is true, I think she'll be a real hit with the cafe' crowd.

Thumbs up

MAAAN! LOOK AT THAT M0%437?*3R !!
I'd love to have one. I wonder what the bore and stroke is?! Imagine a 4in bore and a 3in. stroke, still 1200cc's or so and it has the ability to wrap up tight, so tit would seem feasable toget 75 ftlbs of torque and possibly more than 90hp! The damn thing looks light like around 400-450. Ireckon its more based on the Buell engine than a new bore and stroke. I twould stand to reckon HD would move a bit forward after the 50th anniversary. who knows when it'll be out.
