Harley Launches Major Support for 2020 AFT Production Twins

Harley has announced a major increase in their support of AFT's Production Twins class. For the first time authorized Harley dealerships will now have the race-proven XG750R available for purchase, "ensuring that more competitors will field these race-winning machines during the 2020 AFT season".

Harley has also announced a $250,000 contingency package. “As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Harley-Davidson XG750 next season, this expanded pledge of support shows our lasting commitment to the sport of flat track,” said Jon Bekefy, GM of Brand Marketing for Harley-Davidson. “Harley-Davidson dealerships fielding the XG750R will provide an opportunity for our community to rally behind this great American sport.”
In 2019 there were "moments of brilliance" for riders on the XGR750R during the Production Twins season, with Dalton Gauthier and James Rispoli making regular podium appearances and scoring two wins aboard a privateer XG750R backed by Black Hills Harley-Davidson.
With $7,500 awarded to XG750R riders for each AFT Production Twins race win, plus a $25,000 championship bonus on the line, the contingency package offered by Harley is structured so that a total of $15,000 will be up for grabs to XG750R riders at each AFT Production Twins round in 2020.
The XG750R is available for purchase for $35,999 and deliveries will begin immediately. Supply is limited and priority will be given to dealerships.
