2009 Harley-Davidson Sportster XR1200



Click here for an CycleVIN Motorcycle History Report on this 2009 Harley-Davidson Sportster XR1200. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

Back in 2008, Harley-Davidson released the XR1200, a bike that eschewed the brand’s usual flash and filigree in favor of honest, corner-carving performance. With beefy inverted forks, dual front discs, a large under-tank airbox, and precision oil-cooled heads, it had all the makings of a real rider — not some parking lot prop.

And yet, motorcyclists here in the United States had to watch while those in Europe got to enjoy the fruits of Milwaukee’s labors. There simply didn’t seem to be enough market demand to justify bringing a sporty standard to American showrooms.

Eventually, Harley did quell the vitriol by releasing the XR stateside for a short-lived one year run (it was later replaced by the XR1200X). Power came from a highly-tuned 1200cc V-Twin good for some 91hp and 73lb-ft of torque — considerably more output than the XL1200, though not the only party trick the XR had up its sleeve. Cycle World says it best in their review: “It only took a few to realize that the XR1200 is without a doubt the best-handling production Harley to date.”

This example is VIN: 1HD1LA61X9K451986. It was accepted as a trade-in by our friends at Bartel’s Harley-Davidson, so the history is not well-known.

The odometer shows 16,796 miles.
