2012 Harley-Davidson XR1200X Review

2012 Harley-Davidson XR1200X Review
Drawing inspiration from Harley-Davidson’s legendary race history, the XR1200X™ model takes that performance and style off the track to give riders the finest, street-legal roadster around.
Bold, racing heritage, perfectly tuned for road performance, the XR1200X™ stands out like no other Harley® model to date.
The XR1200X has a blacked-out powertrain and exhaust, revised tank graphics, and black wheels with an orange rim pinstripe.
BLACKED-OUT LOOK
XR 750-INSPIRED FUEL TANK
Throwback graphics echo the bike's flat tracker heritage and hundreds of championships won while giving the XR1200X a truly unique style for the road.
EVOLUTION® ENGINE HERITAGE
The Evolution® engine—known in certain crowds as the Blockhead—was first bolted to the frame of a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle back in 1984.

EVOLUTION® ENGINE INNOVATION
Air-cooled and durable as hell, the 1200cc Evolution® engine is yet another nod to the unwavering work ethic that drives advancements in motor technology at Harley-Davidson. Aluminum heads and cylinders lighten the load of the bike and improve air-cooling efficiency.
