xr1200_tankHarley-Davidson succumbed to the buzz of blogs as well as other customer demands and have now decided to introduce the XR1200 to the U.S. market.  I’ve previously posted articles about the XR1200 HERE and HERE.

The XR1200 was initially designed and launched only in European markets earlier this year. It received a lot of interest along with a positive reception from the European markets.   Many (including this blog) ask why Harley didn’t launch the motorcycle in all markets because it was inspired after the XR-750; one of the most dominating American dirt track racing motorcycles of all-time.  In fact, Harley factory rider Kenny Coolbeth won his third straight AMA Grand National Twins flat track championship on the XR-750 in 2008.

The motorcycle has many unique features and will provide the performance and distinct style demanded of the demographic the company wants to attract.  North American MSRP is $10,799.  This is a smart move.
