A month before Harley Davidson’s international Race of Stars at Silverstone, MCN has tested the XR1200 they’ll be riding. 

The XR1200 race bike has been developed in conjunction with suspension and race experts Harris Performance for a one-make race series due to be launched next year.     

As a result the XR has had an Ohlins makeover c/o new fork internals and new, fully-adjustable twin shocks at the rear, these are also longer than stock to increase ride height and thus ground clearance.

Also improving ground clearance are new Harris race pegs and a full 2:2 titanium race exhaust by Termignoni.

All of the modifications – of which there are many – will be available to XR customers.

So, to find out all the new specs and to get a foretaste of what kind of racing we can expect read the road test in the July 15 issue of MCN.
