Harley-Davidson XL 1200 CX SPORTSTER ROADSTER 2016

This time, Harley is convinced that the fight is being played out here, now, on the streets, and that it’s time to reopen the chapter of performance. The 1200 Sportster becomes Roadster, mean, sporty. This new version of the XL 1200 no longer accepts any compromises, and craves a café-racer..

Far in its past, the echoes of the famous KHR resonate between the tubes of the steel frame. Make room between the sidewalks, the 1200 CX wants them to vibrate.

It’s known, and Colin Chapman has always defended it: the enemy is weight – "Light is right". Harley has therefore stripped this roadster as much as possible to keep only the essentials (note: I can no longer count the number of H-D machines which claim extreme stripping …). With a truncated rear mudguard, specific rims where the words lightness and design have dictated the function, and no artifice coming to disturb the driving, the XL 1200 CX claims the DNA of the machines that competed on the circuit in the years. 50. Its lowered handlebars almost make it look like the pilot will grab bracelets to get started in urban driving. But it is its front axle which calls out the most: a deep inverted fork of 43 mm threatens the road. Strong, almost athletic, but temperamental. The 1200 Roadster has never heard of radial, monoblock or trapper brake calipers. It will be satisfied with two tracks of 300 mm with jaws with two pistons.

Fixed in front of the pilot, a minimalist on-board console informs the tempo of the twin with a single hand. The speed is displayed in a digital window. The beautiful padded saddle may seem like a good dose of comfort but the driving position favoring the pressure on the tank will bring you back to the sporting chapter. The steering geometry of this bike, its choice of tires, its appearance, and especially its suspensions go in this direction. The fork is triple adjusted, while the emulsion side shocks allow 3 levels of preload. Unlike other Sportsters, the 1200 Roadster offers more travel: 112.5mm at the front and 80mm at the rear.
Interesting, but still light years away from a dampening of Japanese or European a bit virulent.

A Sportster can only be conceived with an air engine, dry and full in the mouth. The 1200 Evolution takes care of the cavalry, with approximately 10 mkg of torque available at 4,250 rpm. A bit more than on the 48 but obtained higher in the towers. If this machine certainly wants to show its muscles, it is in no way the descendant of the XR 1200 X, much more powerful and shot with the Buell / dirt-track cocktail..
Once the mechanics and the Sportster Roadster are launched on the roads, the driver will have at his disposal up to 31.1 ° of angle. A few racing-inspired details finish to immerse you in the atmosphere (The belt cover and muffler guards reveal lightening holes comparable to components mounted on racing motorcycles). For thrill seekers, this Sportster 1200 Roadster asserts itself as one of the Milwaukee manufacturer’s sportiest machines..
