Brand Name, Torque,

Disadvantages: No Fairing, Vibration

had an XL1200S Sportster now for just 3 months, now that it’s past the 1000m run-in I can enjoy what it’s all

With the Screaming air filter kit, Dynojet, and fitted the bike started to like a Harley should, and out a grin when pulling and opening it up to overtake, I actually to will the traffic lights to red so as to be able to enjoy the sound of the

The 1200 is pretty much the dimensions as the 883s, but with a increase in available power and be considered if trying out an 883, be overwhelmed with the thought of a engine, it’s not big at all if you look at past and present.
