This is the Harley for non Harley lovers, as it’s relatively quick and handles pretty well. Not strictly a hand built motorcycle but, for a few short years, Harley finally got round to making a road going version of their legendary XR750 that dominated american flat track racing for years.

They selected the best bits from a 1200 Sportster and built a decent frame, added some good brakes and funky 3 spoke wheels. The motor has been tuned to produce around 90bhp. The belt drive keeps it clean and smooth and the noise it makes is unique. Together, the package offers a Harley that works on European roads and makes the rider feel like a flat track ace.
