Harley-Davidson has just started taking pre-orders for the much raved XR-1200 model and if you’re quick you might just have yours in December. How is that possible? Simple, you got to have a thing for the Orange and
Black version –as it is the first one to be shipped – and subscribe for one of the first 750 bikes to be produced. Either that number is or isn’t met until Dec 15th, the American motorcycle maker will stop taking orders.
At an MSRP of only $11,179, it isn’t that hard to take a decision and call +17148914300 to book yours.
Harley will start shipping the Silver or Black colored XR-1200’s in February or
March and that is also the period in which you’ll get the Orange and Black one if you won’t pre-order it until the above mentioned date.
The MSRP for the Black painted California version will be reduced to $10,900.
For those of you who want the garage to look like you very own showroom, Harley-Davidson introduces bubble protection. It is like placing your motorcycle in a balloon only that it doesn’t take off, at least until the next Harley invention.
The bubble was created especially for Harley-Davidson motorcycles to fit in it, meaning that most other bikes are perfectly suitable to be bubbled up due to their fairly smaller dimensions. Why would someone do that, you ask? Well, don’t you ever go in your garage to admire the two-wheeled jewel? In that case you know that a simple transparent cover just doesn’t do the job.
The best of it is that the air compressor features an incorporated filter so that the air circulating inside the bubble is humidity and dust free, keeping your bike clean and preventing metal parts from rusting.
Five star accommodations for your bike require between $269 and $289
depending on the size.
America’s youngsters in between 18 and 25 are offered the opportunity to win a 1942 Harley-Davidson WLA motorcycle through a youth program of the Antique Motorcycle Club of America. But don’t think it’s that easy as they will first have to subscribe to an Essay Contest and then the lucky winner should rebuilt its prize from scratch with parts sent in from all over the country.
Matt Olson, youth director of the Antique Motorcycle Club of America, is the man behind this idea so in the video below he describes the Essay Contest and presents the parts that will eventually end up describing a Harley.

One of Harley’s latest ads doesn’t involve the bike actually being ridden by someone, but powerlifted by the famous Scot Mendelson.
The Motor Company claims less than 18 bucks a pound something that would make people optimistic about their chances to actually lift the bike if having the bad luck of tipping it over, but the powerlifter apparently got the wrong idea. It is nice to see him doing this though.
In the case you haven’t already hit the “play” button for this video Marissa Miller is Victoria’s Secret Angel and Sports Illustrated cover girl who has recently teamed up with Harley-Davidson to shoot photos as part of an upcoming ad campaign for the new V-Rod Muscle. This behind the scenes video attached below also features an interview with Marisa Miller, but we have a hunch that you’re not interested in the talk.
The world’s local bank or not, but I love the scenario that HSBC imagines for making their own commercial. A world in which Harley-Davidson is the number one mean of transportation is probably every rider’s dream and if it can’t be made reality at least it brings your pc’s screen to live.
This is a Old West style ad for the Georgia State Lottery featuring as modern as possible elements such as a parking meter and a 105th Anniversary Harley-Davidson Fat Boy mechanical horse. The two touches of modernity start the conflict in this clip, but the funny part is how it ends.
Harley-Davidson is expected to introduce a new concept next month at the Intermot motorcycle show in Cologne, Germany. A leaning reverse-trike, the new machine will be based on the 115 horsepower Revolution motor powering the V-Rod, but up until this time only the patent drawings have been released.
Much ahead the American Motor Company, Brudeli Tech has announced production of their Leanster 645L and the official launch at the same upcoming motorcycle saloon.
Even though Harley-Davidson started producing trikes earlier this year, the future concept is expected to be an even greater success, considering the markets demands. Still, Harley’s trike will be a half way competitor for the Leanster as this last one has the ability to go both on paved roads and off the road is necesary, something that we’re not expecting from Harley-Davidson.
Stay tuned to find out more information about this concept trike and, hopefully, the first official photos.
