The 2010 Harley-Davidson XR1200X Sportster

2010 Halrey-Davidson XR1200X:

The 2011 Harley XR1200X Motorcycle

Grab the wide flat-track handlebar. Twist the throttle, hug the hairpins, and experience the power delivery and cornering agility.

The XR1200™ motorcycle redefines Harley-Davidson performance with an authentic street machine for riders who dare to be different.

The XR1200X takes Harley-Davidson Sportster performance to a new level with fully adjustable premium suspension and full floating front brake rotors.

Introduced in 2010 for export markets, the XR1200X will be available as a 2011 model at Harley-Davidson dealers in the United States.

The XR1200X Motorcycle combines this premium suspension with enhanced front brakes and the responsive punch of a high-compression, 1200cc Evolution® V-Twin engine in a dynamic, street-performance motorcycle.

The power plant is the same reliable Evo 1200cc V-Twin found on other Sportster models, featuring downdraft Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI), 10:1 compression ratio and high-performance camshafts to help produce 74 ft-lbs of torque at 4000 rpm.

With the premium suspension the XR1200X let the rider tune the suspension to their weight, riding style and road conditions. The Showa Big Piston Front fork eliminates many of the internal components in a cartridge-type fork resulting in lighter weight. The large diameter of the internal piston allows a reduction in damping pressure for outstanding feedback and smooth action. Rebound and and compression damping are tuned with adjustment screws on top of the fork bolts. Spring pre-load is adjusted with a M5 hex screw on the axle holders.

Also showa rear shocks feature nitrogen charged piggyback reservoirs. The compression damping is adjusted with a know on top of the reservoir. Rebound damping is adjusted with a wheel on the lower clevis. Rear Spring load is also adjustable.

Dual 292mm full-floating rotors with Nissin four-piston calipers add the finishing touches to the premium suspension.

Key XR1200X Features:

Riding the XR1200X from Harley

Showa Big Piston Front fork (BPF) eliminates many of the internal components used in a cartridge-type fork, resulting in lighter overall fork weight.

The large-diameter of the BPF internal piston allows a reduction in damping pressure for outstanding feedback and smooth action. Rebound and compression damping may be fine tuned with adjuster screws located on top of the fork bolts. The spring pre-load is adjusted with a M5 hex screw on the axle holders.

Showa rear shocks feature 36mm pistons with piggy-back nitrogen charged reservoirs. The compression damping may be adjusted with a knob on top of the reservoir. Rebound is adjusted with a thumb wheel on the lower clevis. Rear spring pre-load is also adjustable.

Nissin dual front brakes feature 292mm full-floating rotors and four-piston calipers.

Isolation-mounted 1200cc XL Evolution V-Twin engine with black powdercoat finish features downdraft Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI), high-performance camshafts, precision oil-cooled cylinder heads and a large-capacity oil cooler. Compression ratio is 10:1. The engine is rated at 74 ft. lbs. peak torque @ 4000 rpm (per SAE J1349).

Upswept, high-volume 2-1-2 straight-shot exhaust system with satin black finish offers extra cornering clearance.
