2012 Harley XR1200X | Quick Look

2012 Harley-Davidson Motorcycle

Fully adjustable Showa Big Piston Forks and twin Showa 36mm shocks, partnered with new Michelin Scorcher 11 tires that are specifically designed for the bike, show that the XR1200X is serious about handling, although limited ground clearance at the track will take the edge off your enthusiasm.

Four-piston Nissin brakes have floating rotors, and the Sportster Evolution engine gets upswept pipes and a menacing blacked-out look.

Despite a manly wet-weight of over 570 pounds, the XR1200X is a real sport motorcycle that works well in the canyons.
