Harley-Davidson XR1200X review

The came hot on the heels of the 2009 itself a nod at the legendary XR Harley bikes from another What the XR1200X came was a series of new parts that put any niggles from the previous which wasn’t a lot in the first

Where the XR1200X scores is in the suspension area. The 2010 arrives with quality Showa suspension front and This simple change a big difference to the bike’s overall quality.

The forks are Upside Down Big Piston Forks that a great deal more from the front end.

The rear shocks are slightly and firmer to make give a compliant action from the as well as sharpening up the steering. new set-up isn’t quite in with Moses parting the Red Sea but on a (wet) motorcycle with riding bias it makes a difference.

As a sports bike, the is as far away from a Japanese or equivalent as London is to Beijing. middleweight … sports are in excess of 115bhp and weighing less. Even Buell had spec equivalents when it was and using a similar engine.

On the bright side, there’s not a lot of ornaments on the XR1200X. It looks the of a big bruiser … and to an extent like one. This is down to the air/oil-cooled 1202cc engine and the stomping effect of a 73.8ft lbs of torque output.

Horsepower seems to be a dirty in Harley world because don’t like to give figure.

Experience says around 75-85 horses are their way through the dual mufflers. Another 20 or so wouldn’t go if only to help motivate the trying to keep his weighty XR in of the Yamahas and Kawasaki bikes of world.

Harley has stuck to the XR theme quite closely. The position is upright enough for the to be classified as a kite when he 60mph. But in truth it’s not an place to be for the first 120 miles.

Even after this there’s a good chance an XR will still be smiling he’s had fun getting the best his bike. Plus he and his bike be getting all the attention at the mobile van because… because he has a Harley-Davidson
