A dealer in California has begun accepting orders for the Harley XR1200. Deliveries could begin as soon as December. Allegedly, Harley emailed its US dealers yesterday, informing them that an initial run of 750 of the orange and black flat track-inspired model are now available for pre-order at $11,179. Orders must be placed by 15 December.

The XR1200 is the most performance-oriented bike in Harley's 2009
line-up. While it still uses the air-cooled 1200cc Sportster engine, it
houses that motor in a chassis that's actually capable of leaning,
going and stopping just a like a normal motorcycle. Since its European
launch, US sales have been heavily rumored. While this news does seem
to confirm the machine's availability Stateside, the company has yet to
issue formal confirmation. It's thought that after this limited run of
orange and black bikes, the silver and black model will be made widely
available.
