CUSTOM CHROME EUROPE PRESS RELEASE - PUBLICATION FREE OF CHARGE Surprise: A French XLCR conversion kit for the XR 1200! Flat Track: XR 1200 No other than legendary Flat Track Racer Scott Parker rode the XR 1200 onto the Intermot stage in September 2006. It took almost two years to bring the XR 1200 to the dealerships, first in Europe, then in the US. As with the XR 1000 of 1983, Harley-Davidson had over-estimated the demand for a „stock“ XR lookalike – the XR 1200 has very little in common with the race bike it depicts – and despite good performance on the curvy roads of Europe, more like Super Moto than Flat Track, the XR 1200 never reached the sales numbers that were expected. Too many compromises had been made in the styling – and few customizers „radicalized“ the bike as it should have.
