A hark to their roots in racing, the 2011 Harley-Davidson XR1200X ($11,799) is inspired by Evel Kneivel’s fabled XR750. After a year, the bike is landing on U.S. soil and features a fully adjustable Showa front and rear suspension (dialed in to rider weight, riding style, and road conditions), improved front brakes, 1200cc Evolution V-Twin engine, blacked out powertrain, exhaust, black wheels with orange rim pinstripe, revised tank graphics, and (gasp!) minimal chrome. The XR1200X has wide flat-track bars and rearset footpegs for a more aggressive stance and color choices are simple: black denim and a surprisingly sharp white hot denim. Unfortunately, a leather-clad Marisa Miller isn’t available or optional.
