This modified Harley XR1200 - built by Harris Performance - is a road-going replica of the racing XR1200s they developed for the XR1200 Trophy one-make race series, which supports selected rounds of BSB.
Watch the video to see why our road tester Michael Neeves says: "this is the most excited I've been about a new bike for a long time."

I bought a standard one of these as an ex Demo and loved it. So much so that I traded it in for a new one. They are great fun....and that's why Neevesy loved this suped up version. The sensitive steering he spoke about will partly be caused by the dymag wheels, which use a 17" front, rather than the stock 18" in order to make the bike quicker steering for the race series, and allow more tyre options. I'll be contacting harris about some of the bits, because the stock bike, while great fun, does have scope for improvement and I think these bikes are worth the effort.

A good Harley
I rode an XR-1200, handled quite nice, crap slow, vibrated like a washing machine and was 200 lbs too heavy, so this one is £15,000?, are they mad?, buy an old Bandit 1200 for a grand, carbon wheels and a mild tune and run rings around those underpowered and overpriced Harley's sitting pretty outside the fish and chip shop, nuff said?
