Iconic motorcycle manufacturer Harley-Davidson unveiled the XG750R, which is a race bred Street 750 that we see in India. This is the first time after 44 years Harley Davidson has entered the Pro flat-track racing with the XG750R and the bike looks stunning.
The XG750R debuted at the AMA Pro flat track racing Springfield Mile in Illinois in the USA, on May 29, 2016, Harley Davidson's Screamin' Eagle Factory Team was behind building this stunner.
The manufacturer says the XG750R is powered by a liquid cooled and fuel injected Harley-Davidson Revolution X V-Twin engine. As of now the bike is made for racing purpose only and nothing has been confirmed if it will be on sale for the public.
The XG750R has been tuned for racing purpose, the frame and engine come from Vance & Hines Motorsports (who partner with Harley for motorcycle drag racing programs).
Kris Schoonover, Harley-Davidson's racing manager said, "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,"
Bikes from Triumph, Ducati, Kawasaki and Harley Davidson take part in this format of racing, the event held on May 29, 2016, was won by Bryan Smith who rode the Kawasaki Ninja 650, tuned for this format of racing.
Flat-track motorcycle racing is where riders race on a dirt oval track, drifting on each of a corner and there is a lot of wheel to wheel racing, this raises a lot of curiosity as there is a fight for position at every given opportunity.
