A new XR1200X heads a four new model update for Harley-Davidson for 2010 with an updated Electra Glide, Fat Boy with a Dyna Wide Glide being the only all-new model.

The XR1200 was only released last year – the first Harley tuned for European riding and style tastes.

This latest incarnation will run alongside the existing model has blacked-out engine casing, upside-down forks, and a matt black tail, tank and mudguards to create a more aggressive look.

It also has higher specification Showa suspension.

Bill Davidson, Harley-Davidson Vice President said: “This new-product roll-out is simply an expression of our enthusiasm for motorcycling.

“Like everyone, we are working and living in a challenging environment these days, but our passion for creating and riding great bikes is still at full throttle.”

Harley’s information says:

Inspired by one of the world’s most successful racing machines, the iconic XR750, the XR1200 range was born out of a desire for a street smart Harley-Davidson motorcycle that is just as dominant through the twisties.

First came the original XR1200, and for 2010 there is the latest incarnation: the all-new XR1200X. As much an upgrade as it is an evolution of the XR concept, the updated styling has a predatory edge.

The blacked-out engine casing, upside-down forks, and a matt black tail, tank and fender create a more aggressive presence.

Elsewhere, sport-tuned Showa piggyback suspension offers up enhanced performance and firmer handling.
