HD Motorcycle Review: 2012 Harley-Davidson Sportster XR1200 X

In 2009, Harley-Davidson introduced a limited number of XR1200 motorcycles (750) to the USA, the roadster based upon the legendary dirt-track bike, the XR750. It is powered by a 1,200cc v-twin.

In 2010, the XR1200 was released in full production in America, but Harley took it one step further in 2011, offering the XR1200 X; the new XR1200 X featured upgrades to suspensions, such as Showa fully adjustable rear shock absorbers.

In 2012, Harley offers the XR1200X roadster with the 1200cc Evolution engine and fully-adjustable Showa suspension. With an already respected platform, Harley's only upgrade for 2012 are the Michelin Scorcher "11" front and rear tires designed specifically for the XR1200X.
The 2012 Harley-Davidson Sportster XR1200X is priced at US$11,799.
