The English of Shaw Speed & Custom launched their sights on a Harley-Davidson XR1200X. A roadster base finally in super sport in the Seventies looks.
It is thousands of miles from his native land that this Harley-Davidson XR 1200. Assumed, extensively reworked by the English of Shaw Speed & amp; Custom, the Sportster is still more desirable in this all fairer version called TT. Although the sport is no longer a priority currently at Harley-Davidson, there was a time where the Milwaukee mark participated in Sprint races. And it was at this time that Shaw Speed & Custom has wanted to pay tribute by modifying a XR1200X.
Basically, the XR 1200 is an evolution of the famous XR 750 flat-track. But once passed in the workshops of Shaw Speed & Custom, Sportster American does have nothing to do with the original concept. Goodbye the roadster look stripped and Hello the sporty to the fairing worked reminding us as well as HD has also participated in the history of Sprint races.
As you may have noticed, a lot of work conducted to arrive at the final result. If, at first glance, that particular care was given to the aerodynamics of the American, she hides other secrets. With its elements of fairing, it was named “TT”.
The amendments do not stop to look just focusing on the front of the machine to discover. We will start by mounting a Fender front of MotoGP on the big fork Öhlins at the foot of which is a pair of pliers Brembo.
At the rear, same topo with a pair of combined spring-damper cylinder separated from Öhlins, but more amazing still, final transmission is now by chain.
Mechanical logarithm, Harley-Davidson XR 1200 engine has been significantly redesigned to give a 100 horses for example 10 additional horses that will have the chance to express themselves via a dual exit exhaust Akrapovic, borrowed from a BMW X 6 cannula. Of course, the exhaust is made custom. A good nice work signed Shaw Speed & Custom.
Finally, as a reminder, the XR 1200 it was. The twin has been reviewed to develop a hundred horses (ten more than the stock version). Also, found a double exhaust Akrapovic made custom.
Even if this Harley-Davidson is not able to type the Chronos on major circuits of the globe, must recognize that the work of the English is flawless.
