A new-generation Harley-Davidson flat-track motorcycle is ready to race. The Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle Factory Team is unleashing the XG750R, its first all-new flat track race bike in 44 years, to battle on dirt ovals across the U.S. The XG750R will make its official competition debut Sunday, May 29, at the AMA Pro Flat Track Springfield Mile in Illinois.
Powered by the fuel-injected, liquid-cooled Harley-Davidson Revolution X V-Twin engine, the XG750R will be raced by Factory Team rider Davis Fisher on the AMA Pro Harley-Davidson GNC1 presented by Vance & Hines flat track series. The new XG750R motorcycle is strictly for race competition and will not be offered for sale at this time.
The new flat tracker is powered by the 750cc Revolution X V-Twin engine designed for the Harley-Davidson Street 750, a motorcycle built for maximum urban maneuverability with rebellious Dark Custom attitude. Tuned for the track, this modified Revolution X engine will power the new XG750R as it fights to be first to the finish line.
The race-modified Revolution X engine and a racing frame for the XG750R were developed by Vance & Hines Motorsports. Vance & Hines also is the partner for the factory Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle/Vance & Hines drag racing program where V-Rod motorcycles have won eight of the past 12 NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle drag racing championships.
Fisher, in his first season racing with the Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle Factory Team and a rookie in the GNC1 series, will be the first racer aboard the XG750R. The 18-year-old racer from Warren, Ore., won the 2015 AMA Pro GNC2 championship.
Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle Factory Team rider Brad Baker, 23 years old and the 2013 AMA Pro Grand National Champion, will continue to race aboard the proven Harley-Davidson XR750 motorcycle while Fisher races the XG750R through its developmental stage.
