Harley-Davidson invited legendary flat track racer, Scott Parker, to be part of the media launch of the 2011 XR1200X.
Parker’s nine titles and 94 national wins made him the all-time leader in championships and wins in AMA Grand National history when he retired in 2000.
The team captured some video of Scott having fun on the Briggs & Stratton Motorplex course at Road America. Its tight, challenging turns are a perfect match for the XR1200X.
The new XR1200X is Harley-Davidson Sportster performance honed to their finest edge. Introduced in 2010 for export markets only, the XR1200X will be available through Harley-Davidson dealers in the United States as a 2011 model.
Equipped with fully adjustable Showa front and rear suspension components, the 2011 XR1200X can be adjusted to match rider weight, riding style and road conditions.
The XR1200X 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.
With a tank and tail section designed to evoke the legendary Harley-Davidson XR750 – the king of the gritty American flat-track scene – the XR1200X puts its mechanical character on display.
Wide flat-track bars and rearset footpegs position an assertive rider for active control. The XR1200X has a blacked-out powertrain and exhaust, revised tank graphics, and black wheels with an orange rim pinstripe.
The XR1200X will be offered in two colors: Black Denim and White Hot Denim.
