Harley-Davidson XL Sportster 1200 R 2008

The Sportster improved in 2004. From XLH, it becomes XLR and improves in many ways. A revised chassis, lower handlebars, a more racy saddle, a more sparkling engine. The last big evolution of the 1200 Sportster dated from 1998: it benefited from engine modifications which restored its health..

New cylinder heads and camshafts, bigger carbs, and here is the American twin more torquey and generous in the midrange. This evolution gives it more energy, and more enthusiasm to travel in the city, a place where we frequently descend low in the towers..

Showing off on board and soaking up the Harley spirit requires some sacrifices. First of all, don’t plan to take a big trip to show it to your friends who live 500 meters away. Autonomy is derisory, and no question of continuing the TGV. The twin (mounted rigid in the frame until 2004) offers you unrestrained vibrations. As a result, we are not encouraged to exceed the limits on highways. Either way, it’s not designed to hang around. Not too tempted by the arsouille either, because the machine welcomes you in a relaxed and comfortable position. So, take advantage of the essentials: its lively big twin and its timeless look..
