                         Harley-Davidson disappointed some fans in its home country when the firm ■ announced that the XR1200, a street-legal V-twin inspired by the legendary XR750 flat-tracker, would not initially be sold in the United States.

The XR1200 was competitively priced, too, which helped make it popular in Europe - and led to its belated arrival in the US market a year later.
