The factory race team will the Harley-Davidson XG750R this weekend during the AMA Pro Flat Track Springfield Mile race in Illinois. This is Harley’s first all-new flat track race bike in 44 years.

Based on the Harley Street 750 platform, the XG750R features a modified fuel-injected, Revolution X V-Twin.

“After decades of flat-track racing success behind the Harley-Davidson XR750 flat track motorcycle, we knew it was time to develop the next-generation Harley-Davidson to compete in one of the best spectator racing sports out there today,” said Kris Schoonover, Harley-Davidson racing manager.

Piloting the XG750R is Davis Fisher, an 18-year-old racer from Warren, Oregon. Fisher won the 2015 AMA Pro GNC2 Championship, and moved to the factory Harley team in the GNC1 class.

“We wanted a young rider with plenty of raw ability for the XG750R program, and Davis proved himself in the GNC2 class,” said Schoonover. “We are excited to have the opportunity to bring an emerging talent like Davis up to the GNC1 series to develop the new bike alongside an experienced champion like Brad Baker.”

Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle Factory Team rider, 23-year-old Brad Baker, the 2013 AMA Pro Grand National Champion, will continue to race aboard the proven Harley-Davidson XR750 motorcycle while Fisher races the XG750R through its developmental stage, Harley reports..

“The XG750R has shown great potential in testing and the first few races this season,” said Schoonover. “But as with any new racing motorcycle, there will be work to do. We’re excited to continue testing the XG750R in real world competition, and as we make our way through the season, we will evaluate the performance of the bike and our factory riders to see if Baker might switch to the new bike.”
