The XG750 flat track racebike looks really good. If only Harley were also offering a street-legal version for sale, it would have made a lot of fans very happy
Harley-Davidson have unveiled the XG750R, the company's first all-new flat track racebike in more than four decades. The XG750R will make its official competition debut on Sunday, 29 May, at the AMA Pro Flat Track Springfield Mile in Illinois. The bike will then go on to race at other dirt ovals across the US. "After decades of flat-track racing success behind the Harley-Davidson XR750 flat track motorcycle, we knew it was time to develop the next-generation Harley-Davidson to compete in one of the best spectator racing sports out there today," says Kris Schoonover, Harley-Davidson's racing manager. The bike is for race competition only and will not be offered for sale at this time.
Powered by Harley's fuel-injected, liquid-cooled 750cc Revolution X V-twin, the XG750R will be raced by factory team rider Davis Fisher, in the AMA Pro flat track series. Its race-spec Revolution X engine and chassis have been developed by Vance & Hines Motorsports. The bike looks pretty good but unfortunately Harley have not provided any technical specifications, details of power and torque output, or performance specs.
