The Harley-Davidson XLCR1000 is unique in the of models built by the famous Wisconsin, company, in that it is not built on the same ‘laid lines as its tourer stable-mates. In the CR part of the title stands for Racer, and the Harley is unquestionably one of the aggressive looking cafe available.

Although outwardly from the other Harleys, the still has the famous V-twin which, with very dimensions of 81 mm X968 mm, displaces

A45degree unit, the engine a 9:1 compression ratio, simple operated valves, a single 38 mm carburetor and all the reliability one could need. Unsophisticated it may be, but the engine pull a house down its 68 bhp at 6200 rpm and, although probably around 60 lb ft of torque.

Although the torque figure is not by the company they do say that the amount’ is produced at 3500 well down the rev scale but the thing for instant acceleration in any of the four gears. An electric is the only concession to modern in the engine and it copes surprisingly with getting the engine way. Unlike a silky Japanese multi, one is very aware of when the Harley’s is running.

It has an off-beat exhaust note, it and shakes and leaves the rider in no as to its capabilities.

There is really little in taking the engine above rpm and even changing gear at rpm allows rapid progress. The top speed is really governed by its low as the red line speed of just 110 mph in top can be reached with no fuss at Vibration and a deafening roar are factors that make the red line of 6500 rpm of little

With grippy Goodyear and a long wheelbase, the Harley and corners well, with of feel of the road being to the rider. In fact, on bumpy it would be fair to say that the can be quite jarring, but that is trading for a Harley that Braking is ‘fair to middling’ in the but just about non-existent in the and waiting for the discs to work in the is hair-raising to say the least.

On the other the Goodyear A/T covers cope in most conditions and the XLCR is a lot of a handful than most of its on wet roads.
