Unofficial XR1200 Sportster Production Numbers 
 
 
 
XR1200s in Action

 
 
The Harley Davidson XR1200 Sportster was introduced in the International market in early 2008, and was brought to the United States during the middle of the 2009 model year. 
The slightly improved XR1200X model was introduced during Internationally during the middle of the 2010 model year, and was introduced in 2011.
2011 was the last year of production of the original XR1200. 
Production of the U.S. and International models of the XR1200X ended in 2012, with a small number of XR1200X motorcycles being assembled and sold in Brazil during 2013.
2013 was the last year of production of the XR1200 series of Harley Davidson Sportster motorcycles.


Harley Davidson was gracious enough to provide the following production numbers for the XR1200 through the end of the 2013 model year.
These numbers are "unofficial" but should be correct based on the Motor Company's production data.
These numbers should include all XR Sportster motorcycles which were assembled.

 
These figures include the final 2013 model year production of XR's, with the XR1200X motorcycles assembled in Brazil for that market.


NOTE:  And, many thanks to Etienne, or "E.H-57"of the XR1200ownersgroup Forum,
who caught my double-count math error in the number of XR1200's produced for the international market in the 2009 Model year.
The 2009, and overall Total, numbers are now revised and corrected.


 
In total, combining XR1200 and XR1200X models, and including test and special production bikes produced through the end of the 2013 model year:

  10706 XR Sportsters have been manufactured in total. 
These came in both the initial XR1200, and the enhanced XR1200X models.

Of  the XR Sportsters built from 2008 through 2013,
  • 6580 are XR1200's  and
  • 4126 are XR1200X's


In terms of geography:


  • 3587 XR's have been produced for the U.S. markets, and
  • 6932 XR's for the "international" markets.   and
  • 187 XR1200X Brazil bikes were assembled in Brazil in the final 2013 year of production.
 

The following tables have some detail on production by year, color and location...
 
 
2008
Initial partial year XR1200 production information from 2008. 
While the XR1200 was initially introduced solely in the overseas market, there were apparently a (very) small number of U.S. (California) specification XR1200's manufactured in 2008.  Also, a small number of some additional colors were produced, which were not released for sale.
