NEXT GENERATION, LIQUID-COOLED HARLEY-DAVIDSON XG750R FLAT TRACKER BREAKS COVER AT AMA PRO SPRINGFIELD MILE...

A new-generation Harley-Davidson® flat-track motorcycle is ready to race. The Harley-Davidson® Screamin' Eagle® Factory Team is unleashing the XG750R, its first all-new flat track race bike in 44 years, to battle in fierce, adrenaline-filled competition on dirt ovals across the U.S. The XG750R will make its official competition debut Sunday, May 29, at the AMA Pro Flat Track Springfield Mile in Illinois.

Powered by the fuel-injected, liquid-cooled Harley-Davidson Revolution X V-Twin engine, the XG750R will be raced by Factory Team rider Davis Fisher on the AMA Pro Harley-Davidson GNC1 presented by Vance & Hines flat track series. The new XG750R motorcycle is strictly for race competition and will not be offered for sale at this time.

The new flat tracker is powered by the 750cc Revolution X™ V-Twin engine designed for the Harley-Davidson Street® 750, a motorcycle built for maximum urban maneuverability with rebellious Dark Custom™ attitude. Tuned for the track, this modified Revolution X engine will power the new XG750R as it fights to be first to the finish line.













2017 Harley-Davidson XG750R Flat Tracker http://www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

The race-modified Revolution X engine and a racing frame for the XG750R were developed by Vance & Hines Motorsports. Vance & Hines also is the partner for the factory Harley-Davidson® Screamin' Eagle®/Vance & Hines drag racing program where V-Rod® motorcycles have won eight of the past 12 NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle drag racing championships.

"After decades of flat-track racing success behind the Harley-Davidson XR750 flat track motorcycle, we knew it was time to develop the next-generation Harley-Davidson to compete in one of the best spectator racing sports out there today," said Kris Schoonover, Harley-Davidson racing manager.

Fisher, in his first season racing with the Harley-Davidson Screamin' Eagle Factory Team and a rookie in the GNC1 series, will be the first racer aboard the XG750R. The 18-year-old racer from Warren, Ore., won the 2015 AMA Pro GNC2 championship.

"We wanted a young rider with plenty of raw ability for the XG750R program, and Davis proved himself in the GNC2 class," said Schoonover. "We are excited to have the opportunity to bring an emerging talent like Davis up to the GNC1 series to develop the new bike alongside an experienced champion like Brad Baker."

Harley-Davidson Screamin' Eagle Factory Team rider Brad Baker, 23 years old and the 2013 AMA Pro Grand National Champion, will continue to race aboard the proven Harley-Davidson XR750 motorcycle while Fisher races the XG750R through its developmental stage.

"The XG750R has shown great potential in testing and the first few races this season," said Schoonover. "But as with any new racing motorcycle, there will be work to do. We're excited to continue testing the XG750R in real world competition, and as we make our way through the season, we will evaluate the performance of the bike and our factory riders to see if Baker might switch to the new bike."

I like it, gave it a "cool" vote. It's too bad Harley won't sponsor a factory race team anymore, though.

Looks way cooler than the Street750. I hope they sell a road legal version soon.

Are these two guys who are riding the different versions of the 750 not the Factory team? It does look cool, though that track looks to be paved (or is it oiled dirt?)
Never seen a flat track race.

I checked the HD website and it turns out I was wrong; not only are they fielding Brad Baker and David Fisher in the AMA Pro series, they're also still backing a factory V-Rod drag racing team in the NHRA series. My bad.

I'm not really sure. I think it still has a good sized following in the USA, or HD wouldn't bother to tool up a bike like this. They won't do anything if they don't think it will bring in revenue.

I post AMA new releases in our Daily News Forum each week: viewforum.php?f=13 those Flat Track race reports are one of our most read articles. AMA Flat Track doesn't hold a ton of races each year, but still quite a few. So I would guess it's definitely holding it's own for interest sake. I've never seen one myself, but I would be interested.

Last night's Flat Track news:

Harley-Davidson Flat-Track Racing Returns To X Games Austin With H-D's New Next Generation Flat-Track Motorcycle

I went with Cool.

I was going to vote Awesome, but I'm heavily suspicious of the new Street 750 engine's performance and I'm not sure really how much more they can do to it as it's quite a ...sorry, I can't say it in a better way... a heavy, low hp lump, in the Street bikes. I really with H-D could have make it more competitive and the bike lighter, that said, I bet the 2017 Harley-Davidson XG750R Flat Tracker shaves 100lbs off the Street 750's weight and adds another 20hp.

I love the look of the 2017 Harley-Davidson XG750R Flat Tracker, it reminds me A LOT of the XR1200X, a bike that really should have kept going as it was starting to create a new H-D category (like the Street is now).

Only a matter of time then the XG750R will appear as the Street 750R and a Street 1200R... :)

2017 Harley-Davidson XG750R Flat Tracker - Coolness Factor = 74.7%
Featured: May 27th - June 3rd, 2016
Most popular vote category: Cool

Motorcycle Cool Wall discussion: viewtopic.php?f=61&t=53110
Total Motorcycle model page: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/motorcyc ... racker.htm

Your Coolness Factor of the 2017 Harley-Davidson XG750R Flat Tracker is:

Awesome (3 points) 40% [ 10 ]
Cool (2 points) 48% [ 12 ]
Uncool (1 point) 8% [ 2 ]
Fail (0 point) 4% [ 1 ]

Total votes: 25


= a Coolwall Factor of 74.7%


Notes: Did it come as a surprise to you that few actually hated this new H-D and the vast majority loved it? After 44 years, H-D steps up and finally makes a dirt tracker race only model again, not yet for the street mind you, but I can see a street-version in the works in the near future. As blues2cruise noted, it is good to see Harley-Davidson branching out to reach even more potential buyers, I guess I'll have to create a "Race" sub-heading for the 2017 Harley's now... lol.


Get excited as the next TMW Cool Wall bike for 2016 is now up for voting and discussion, have fun!
