Harley-Davidson XR1200 | Backflip Video

Kain Saul Backflip

Click video to watch Kain Saul perform an impressive 40-foot back flip on a 566-pound Harley-Davidson XR1200. Yes, Kain does a freestyle backflip on this nearly stock, nearly brand-new Harley-Davidson XR1200… Reminds me of the old Evel Knievel days.

Kain’s XR1200 has a few minor upgrades including; Harley Street rod shockers, Tag handle bars, a strengthened triple tree, front forks with heavier springs and valving, a chain drive that replaces the belt drive (but standard swing arm), KTM front master cylinder, knobby tires and rear brake pedal is removed. The rest of the H-D XR1200 appears to be stock.
