Harley’s XR1200 — Here at last!


OK, does anybody have a spare $12k hanging around? If only they were still giving out loans like Halloween candy because the Motor Co. has officially (if very quietly) announced that it is offering the XR1200 to the U.S. market.



H-D’s media man, Paul James, confirms that dealers are taking pre-orders for the limited run of 750 units on a first-come, first-serve basis. The early window closes when all 750 are gone, or by Dec. 15, 2008, whichever comes first.

Early buyers get to choose from orange and black or … orange and black. It looks like two additional colors will be available after the Dec. 15 date. They are Vivid Black and Denim Pewter. MSRP runs from $10,799 to $11,179 with we lucky folks in Cali 100 bucks more a pop.

But honestly if I had, and this is a big if, the scratch I’d be down at the dealership this afternoon.
