Starting in 1970, Harley-Davidson chose to replace the KR750 for a new model. The replacement for this was the XR750, the finest ever AMA Grand National Championship motorcycle ever to ride in. The cycle turns fifty this year, they’re all on the line.
To order to make that possible. The Harley-Davidson has made a flashy change. The race colors of Jet Fire Orange will appear in Harley’s racing equipment. This used for the Harley-Davidson Factory Flat Track team.
So, this means it will be shown on Mega Pairs, Twins and NHRA Pro Stock bikes of the Screamin ‘ Eagle / Vance & Hines.
The squad members, shirts and licensed accessories will also display the colors to ensure that the message goes through.
General Manager of Brand Marketing stated that:
The XR750 is the winning motorcycle in the history of AMA Pro Cycling.
So, Harley-Davidson is marking its fiftieth anniversary to recognize the heritage and persons that built the XR750 for the years of its success and to mark the 2020 racing campaign of Harley-Davidson.
The XR750 powered by a sports engine for the first time 50 years ago. The machine won 28 AMA Grand National Championships from 1972 to 2008, making it the bike with the most popular in history. So, the brave Bad Knievel, who ran one from 1970 to 1976, got the attention on this unit.
The new XR750, this time powered by a 750cc prototype Harley-Davidson Revolution X V-Twin engine, is still competing in flat-race races. The racing version originally developed for the Street 750. So, it has all the power it needs in order for it to be a hit for more years.
On March 14, the Harley-Davidson Factory Flat Track Racing Team will hit the track. With three riders riding XG750R bikes at the start of the season at Daytona International Speedway.
The XR750, so which is considered the most popular motorcycle in the AMA Great National Championships ever, was replaced. The machine turns 50 this year, and they have all been spent on the road.
