Harley-Davidson has unveiled four 2008 models, including the XR1200 in Britain.

According to a report, Harley has taken a leaf out of the XR750 American flat track racer for the XR1200. Producing 90bhp and fitted with high-spec Nissin brakes and Showa suspension, the motorcycle is due to arrive in the Spring of 2008 and is likely to be priced at just over 8,000.

Yet another model to debut is the new FXDF Dyna Fat Bob, which comes with small, twin headlights and fat, small-diameter tyres. The prices are expected to start at 10,525. These apart, comes the FXCW Softail Rocker. This machine is said to be inspired by US custom machines. The FXCW Softail Rocker comes with a hidden rear suspension, plus a wide and wheel-hugging rear mudguard wrapped around a huge 240 mm tyre. The report added that the single seat is very low while the front end is stretched out chopper style. The basic model bike is to sell for 12,755.

Meanwhile, Harley-Davidson plans to bring in the Sportster variant in the form of the 1,200cc Nightster, which would also feature a retro look based on that of the original 1957 Sportster. The bike will come sporting a price tag of 6,695. These models will hit the British turf later in 2007. autumn this year, the report added.
