XL 1200R Sportster 1200 Roadster
The XL 1200R Sportster 1200 Roadster offers a harder-edged, performance-oriented interpretation of the Sportster legacy. Its high-performance XL Evolution 1200 engine delivers 70 hp and 79 ft. lbs. of torque for responsive performance across the powerband. Wide, polished handlebars give the rider great leverage in turns, and dual front disc brakes and tachometer are standard. The 3.3-gallon fuel tank features a classic Sportster graphic and a two-tone paint scheme.
