Austin X Games Flat Track VideoLast weekend during the X Games Austin, Harley-Davidson launched its newest motorcycle – the Street 750.Besides offering the lowest-priced platform, the Harley Street 750 also offers the optimal platform for a Flat Track racer. And during the X Games, Harley had some of its top AMA Pro Flat Track racers on fully-prepped Street 750s (Vance & Hines Exhaust, Ohlins Suspension, etc.) during the X Games Flat Track Exhibition Race.
The race was just that – an exhibition. Following the event, fans were asked to use the #XGamesFlatTrack hash tag on Twitter and Instagram to show their support and help the sport become part of the 2015 X Games.Attached above are highlights of the action with Mees and the reigning AMA Pro Flat Track Champion Brad “The Bullet” Baker during the exhibition race at Austin’s Circuit of the Americas during X Games.For a review of the Street 750, click here.
