Harley-Davidson brings its next-generation XG750R flat tracker

by SpeedLux

Having spent 44 years of racing success with the renowned XR750, Harley-Davidson in getting in a new era with the introduction of its brand-new flat tracker. The XG750R is a racing-only device created around the Revolution X liquid-cooled V-twin engine that functions the Street 750 production design.

Harley-Davidson’s XR750 is unquestionably one of the most effective bikes of the current history of American Flat Track racing. At first it was presented in 1970 as a modified Sportster, it developed into an all-conquering flat tracker after a comprehensive redesign in 1972 then proceeded to control the AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National (GNC) for the very best part of the last four decades.

The arrival of the brand-new Street design series in 500 and 750 cc brought about a new V-twin engine. The liquid-cooled V-twin Revolution X in its larger displacement variation completely fit the flat track racer expense, as Harley-Davidson built around it the XG750R flat tracker.

The job of transforming this road-legal unit into a top-level flat track racer was undertaken by Vance & Hines Motorsports, resulting in the XG750R that will make its racing launching at the Springfield Mile in Illinois, U.S.A, on May 29.

Technical details of the new bike have actually not been disclosed, although we should expect a host of updates to the engine. Benefiting from the substantial tuning freedom permitted by the AMA’s rules, the efficiency of the XG750R will most likely climb substantially greater than the 53 hp (40 kW) of the video production design, while keeping the bike’s weight to the 300 pound (136 kg) minimum limitation set for the GNC1 class. Certainly, the new racer shares really few, if any, parts in similar with the Street 750.


The Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle Factory will begin by fielding one XG750R for its rider Davis Fisher. The 18 year-old GNC1 novice, and in 2015’s GNC2 champ, will bring out crucial development deal with the new bike while racing it. The team’s primary rider and 2013 national champ, Brad Baker, will continue racing the XR750 in the meantime.
