Harley Davidson releasing sportiest XR1200X in the US by 2011

Harley Davidson is set to release the finest Sporster, the XR1200X, to the American market by 2011. The XR1200X is being exported to other markets this year and will be hitting US dealerships by next year with a sticker price of $11,799.

Although we are wondering why a brand that boasts of a long American heritage first sells its finest product to the European market, we whole heartedly welcome the coming of the XR1200X. This Harley Davidson makes use of a 1200cc fuel injected V-twin engine. The bike gives out 74 lb-ft of torque and is designed to take a lean angle of 40 degrees.

The XR1200X also comes with front forks with adjustable rebound, preload, and compression from Showa. The rear shocks features 36 millimeter pistons and piggyback reservoirs.

The seat height of this ride comes at 29.2 inches providing a sporty posture as it is combined with dirt track handlebars plus the rear mount pegs.

Buyers can choose from black or white finish with blacked out engine, wheels, and exhaust. The wheels get orange highlights to match the springs.

The XR1200X is certainly a head-turner!
