Thank goodness no for profit company has ever put kook into a product planning or marketing job.
Looks like even HD is branching out into the "sporty naked" area with the Euro Market targeted XR1200. Easily the most interesting thing (to me) that HD has done in a long time that isn't a track bike or a Buell (or a Storz mod).
Apparently my "smiley" wasn't enough to denote sarcasm...
But if you insist, the overhead cam engine is over a century old and the pushrod design is older still... The Otto cycle isn't exactly on the bleeding edge no matter how you skin it - it's all what you make of it.
I like the looks o' that there XR. Good power, and I can finally buy a Sporty without that darn air cleaner sticking out at my knee (which is why I don't have one now). If they sell it here I might have to "accidentally" wreck my Superhawk!
