Harley Davidson XL1200CX Roadster

What Is It?

  • Looks the part
  • Non-adjustable levers

The new Harley-Davidson Roadster is based around the existing 1200cc Sportster model, but styled to evoke memories of the race machines of the 1950s and 1960s. As a result, it joined the Harley Dark Custom lineup to appeal to fans of modern customs which go for a stripped-back look.

It's powered by an air cooled 1,202cc V-Twin engine, producing around 65bhp and maximum torque at just 4,000rpm.

Features include:

  • Steel tubular frame
  • Belt final drive
  • Dual 300mm discs up front with 2 piston calipers
  • 260mm disc at the rear with 2 piston caliper
  • ABS
  • 43mm upside down fork, not adjustable, 114mm travel
  • Dual rear shocks with adjustable pre-load and 81mm travel
  • 5 speed gearbox and fuel injection

The resulting new bike uses the 1200cc air-cooled Evolution engine, but with a more responsive steering geometry and the longest suspension travel of any Sportster. The aim is for an agile ride with is still comfortable due to the new 43mm upside-down single-cartridge front forks and pre-load adjustable coilovers with tri-rate springs at the rear.

The Harley-Davidson Roadster also adjusts the position of the rider to be more central over the 12.5 litre fuel tank with low rise handlebars, mid-mount foot controls and a new contoured padded seat. Instrumentation is limited to a single analogue rev counter with a digital speedo inset.

The most striking changes for the Harley-Davidson Roadster are the cast Aluminium wheels with interlacing spokes for the 19 inch front and 18 inch rear rims. The lighter weight of the wheels is complemented by the slotted belt guard and exhaust shield, and the cut down front and rear mudguards.

The rear indicators are mounted direct on the struts of the mudguard, a new cleaner license plate and rear lighting mount has been introduced, and the Roadster also features custom tank graphics and a finned cast timer cover.

The 10 split spoke cast Aluminium 19" front wheel takes a 120/70 tyre and the rear 18" a 150/70.

Accessories include high performance Chrome/black ceramic mufflers (£721), a solo seat (£358) and LED headlight.

Colours: Black, matt black, red (£250), silver and two-tone silver/black (£550)
