Overview

Harley Davidson is very well known for updating its products according to the need of time. This time, they brought a great mash-up of modern technology with the the retro inspired styling from their existing HD Forty Eight and named it as Roadster XL1200CX. The motorcycle carries a few extra bits from the company's signature styling and focus mainly on the performance aspect of a Harley Davidson.

Design & Style

The new Roadster XL1200CX comes with the same under body as the Forty Eight while most of the visual parts have also been kept the same as the other one. It uses the iconic fuel tank design painted in single color for a pure finish while the exhausts are painted in chrome with black panels on both of them. The fenders on the bike have been cut short for a KHR model inspired look on the Roadster. The bike has missed all of the non required parts for a better performance figure out of all in its class. The motorcycle uses a differently placed handlebar while the padded seat provides a more upmarket look to the motorcycle.

Instrument Console

The neat and clean, single pod instrument console on the XL1200CX matches the best to the profile of the motorcycle. The tachometer stays analogue whereas The semi circular area below the same serves as a digital speedometer with a odometer below it. The warning lights like neutral and others are placed in a stripe near the instrument pod. The chrome line around the pod makes it look more rich and attractive than the others.

Dimensions & Weight

The Roadster is 2185 mm in length, 841 mm in width and 1082 mm in height. The wheelbase measures 1505 mm while the ground clearance comes out to be 150 mm. It weighs 259 kg with all the fluids while the fuel tank stays 12.5 liters. It comes with a certified mileage of 20.40 kmpl.

Engine & Gearbox

The engine powering the XL1200CX is a 1202 cc, V-twin motor with 96 Nm of torque at 4000 rpm. The engine is air cooled and comes with two valves per cylinder.

Braking & Suspension

The motorcycle comes with dual floating, 300 mm disc brakes at the front while the rear is a single disc measuring 260 mm. ABS has been given as an option on the new Roadster XL1200CX.
