The XG750R is the new flat tracker coming from Harley-Davidson team. The famous motorcycle manufacturer enters the market with a bike designed especially for the new generations.
The new model is a racing bike with a Revolution X V-Twin engine that was designed to perform in race competitions. The engine was created by Vance & Hines Motorsports, who are Harley’s partners in racing programs.
As for the design, the bike has a two-color livery that shows black on the left and red on the right. From the left side, the motorcycle is black, and from the right side, it seems to be red.
This release is a premiere in the flat-track world, where racers use almost identical machines. For decades, no new bikes were introduced in this type of racing. Thus, Harley-Davidson’s release is one very bold.
The manufacturer said that the model may not be perfect, and changes may be further made in order to get the best racing results. The bike is still in the developmental stage.
The first time the motorcycle will be presented officially will be on the 29th of May in Illinois, at the AMA Pro Flat Track Springfield Mile. The bike will be ridden by Davis Fisher, who won the GNC2 championship in 2015 before being invited to join the Harley-Davidson team.
At the moment, the new bike is intended for competitions only and will not be made available for public purchase.
Another incredible machine produced by Harley-Davidson is the LiveWire motorcycle. First introduced in 2014, this bike is completely electric and can reach a maximum speed of 90 mph. LiveWire is the first electric bike sold in the US.
Harley-Davidson is a brand with an image that changed over time. In the past, the rider was seen as an older person on a primitive bike.
These days, the rider must be very rich, as the motorcycle became a decorated cruiser. However, the new model shows a different kind of driver – a modern one, interested in design, speed, and competition.
Representatives of the company say their primary interest is to create bikes with a simpler design that will appeal to various segments of the population, no matter the age. As it turns out, riders today have the same motivations as the ones from the 50’s: freedom, adrenalin, and fun.
The next time the new race bike will make a public appearance will be on the 2nd of June at the X-Games event in Austin, Texas.
