2016 Harley Davidson Street 750, was launched in India with a price tag of Rs 4.52 lakh, under Harley’s ‘Dark Custom’ moniker. The Street 750 is Harley-Davidson’s most economical offering on the Indian market yet.
Talking about the exterior, the bike is near identical to its predecessor, although there are new colours – a vivid blue and a brighter shade of red which does make it stand apart. The obtrusive nuts on the swing-arm and axle, were still exactly where they were in the previous model, are blacked-out to match the paint. Comfortably placed footpegs, and a handlebar that is nice and wide and slightly beefed-up from the Street’s forerunner, but not too wide, which makes for some comfortable steering motion in tight city streets.
The engine is still exactly the same refined, liquid-cooled 749-cc V-twin producing 47.5 PS and 60 Nm of torque. The six-speed gearbox too is retained, and the suspension too is exactly the same. What has changed on this Street, however is the braking. New, bigger rotors, callipers and a new master cylinder mean Harley have addressed this particular shortcoming on the Street 750, and the brakes do feel sharper and bitier than those on the bike’s previous iteration though. Still no ABS though.
Stay tuned for more updates!
