Deeley Harley-Davidson® Canada Welcomes The 2012 Racing Season

Concord, Ontario (January 9, 2012) - Deeley Harley-Davidson® Canada Revamps the Racing Program for the Canadian Harley-Davidson® XR1200® Cup Series

Deeley Harley-Davidson® Canada is proud to announce the details of the new Harley-Davidson® National Race Program for 2012, designed to build on the successful debut of the Canadian Harley-Davidson® XR1200® Cup Series in 2011. When participating in the National Canadian Superbike Championship this year with the Harley-Davidson® XR1200® Cup Series, both spectators and racers will be able to experience motorcycle racing at its very finest.

The Canadian Harley-Davidson® XR1200® Cup Series is a spec-bike series featuring specially modified Harley-Davidson® XR1200® and XR1200XTM motorcycles. Vance & Hines will once again be the official kit supplier for the class. The special kit consists of a Vance & Hines exhaust system; a Fuelpak fuel management system; race bodywork including number plate, single-seat tail section, and belly pan; 17-inch front wheel with matching front fender; steering damper; oil cooler relocator; and race decal package. In addition to the Vance & Hines-supplied kit parts, racing teams will be able to upgrade their suspension, hand and foot controls, brake components, and instrumentation. These revisions to the program are outlined in detail in the 2012 CSBK rulebook (posted on www.csbk.ca). In addition to a formidable program that allows racers to pursue their passion in racing at a very affordable cost, attractive weekend purse payouts and a year-end points prize fund will be available to make the series an even sweeter deal. If racing is in your blood and your interest is sparked, then please refer to the 2012 program outline below and make sure to speak to your nearest authorized Canadian Harley-Davidson® Retailer for information on how you too can secure your spot on the grid for a great racing season.
