Roland Sands Design Interprets The Harley-Davidson XR1200

Let’s face it: Harley-Davidson’s XR1200 is already a minimalist standard motorcycle, as it was inspired by the legendary XR750 flat-track race bike. There really isn’t a lot of farkles on the XR1200 that don’t need to be there, but Roland Sands Design makes the original XR1200 seem like a Tupperware-wrapped touring mule. RSD takes the minimalist approach to the extreme, and you’ll either love it or hate it. Either way, you’ve got to admire the handbuilt swingarm and assorted performance parts (Ohlins forks from a Ducati 1098, Performance Machine calipers) RSD worked into the build. I don’t think I’d want to ride it for very long, but it is easy to look at.
