if everything was brushed stainless ( like a fridge door) this bike would be awsome! would just need a bit of alumn (call your granma she probably have that in her kitchen lol!)and voila very easy to keep clean

Pretty clean looking bobber style. I like that it has better suspension and brakes. Definitely the best 1200 variant at the moment. No peanut tank like the 48 has which is nice.

I'm kind of getting tired of flat black though.

Those stripes should be orange and the nameplate should be CNC aluminum plate. with black rubbed in paint.

Cool, a sportster that's actually somewhat sportingly equipped.

I believe this is the first for the XL. The XR had them.

It also comes in Metallic Red, Gloss Black and Silver.

I had a 98 1200S. This reminds me a lot of that bike. Very cool.


On the internet, people can be anything they want. Why do so many choose to be stupid?

Bingo. Never had one, but was reminded of that SportsterSport model when I looked at this.
I'd like to ride one, it actually looks pretty cool. Thought that about the XR1200, too.

No kidding! That is a great looking bike, and it really looks like it can be ridden like a motorcycle should be!

I like it!!!

MY wife and I rode up to Tower Harley on Sunday. They had the "army green" looking US army version on the showroom floor, AWESOME looking bike. Even my wife spoke about it more then a few times while we were there.
