But H-D has come to its senses and taken the plunge by putting the XR1200 on sale stateside. It's made 750 bikes available to its dealers on a pre-order basis, so that those dealers—with multiple customers who were willing to put money down—could get all the bikes they wanted. And so far, with just a "whisper campaign" to spread the word, the bikes have definitely been wanted and are selling at a good clip. More units should be available in late January, says Harley, with the Vivid Black version selling for $10,799. Pewter Denim or Mirage Orange Pearl are $11,079.
