Beneath the Dark Custom™ styling lurks a liquid-cooled 750cc Revolution X™ V-Twin engine.
The Revolution X™engine you see mounted in the frame of the Harley-Davidson Street®750 motorcycle is all new, but the knowledge that built it wasn’t born yesterday. We are the Harley-Davidson Motor Company. We earned our stripes building liquid-cooled V-Twin engines the hard way: on the racetrack and on the street. We’ve been refining the liquid-cooled V-Twin power plant in the V-Rod®motorcycle for more than a decade. And we’ve been refining V-Twin engine power for generations before that.
Look into the paint on the new Harley-Davidson Street®750 motorcycle and what you’ll see is a fanatical obsession with putting color on metal that goes back for decades. The fact is, no factory in the world does motorcycle paint like Harley-Davidson does motorcycle paint. The tanks and fenders that come from our paint shop set the standard on streets around the globe. When you see the lights of your city reflected in the deep, rich paint on the Street 750, you’ll know why.
A motorcycle isn’t a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle unless you can identify it with your eyes closed. Listen to the sound coming from the pipes on the new Harley-Davidson Street® 750 motorcycle, feel its deep, thumping rumble in your chest, and you’ll know it passes that test with flying colors. The note coming from this machine was tuned to perfection in our state-of-the-art sound facility to be instantly recognizable on any street corner in the world. Put your ear to it. This is the real deal. The sound that satisfies the soul.
Where other motorcycles are shiny and bright, the new Harley-Davidson Street® 750 motorcycle is all dark alley. You’ve got the tough, no-nonsense look of black cast aluminum wheels. This is what bling looks like when you put it through a black hole and it comes out the other side.
Last year, we unleashed a new form of rebellion on the urban grid. The Harley-Davidson Street® 750 motorcycle. This is a machine built to let you shred traffic in plenty of infinitely customizable Harley-Davidson® Dark Custom™ style. Liquid-cooled engine. Quick handling. A suspension tuned for rough pavement. Fire up the blacked out engine, send some sound out the blacked out pipes, and get behind the café racer windscreen and go. Consider the traffic whipped.
We were all warned as kids about playing in the street. If you’re the sort who never listened to a word of it, we’ve got your motorcycle. The street is where the action is. The Harley-Davidson Street® series is a line of bikes built with one purpose in mind: to make the most of it. Every inch of the motorcycle has been thought through to meet the demands of navigating the urban landscape. A narrow and nimble profile with a tight 60.4-inch wheelbase keeps the handling razor sharp. Quick moves and turns come easy when you’re threading through whatever modern civilization decides to throw in your path. You have liquid cooling. You have loads of power in the Revolution X™ engine, for when you need to be somewhere else in a hurry. We’re talking about a whole different kind of two-wheeled animal here. One born to take on the traffic-snarled urban jungle.
We built the Harley-Davidson Street® series to be affordable machines for those who’ve gotta work to put gas in the tank and pay the meter maid when you find a place to park. But we did it our own way. That means we did it right. The beautifully formed teardrop fuel tank is Milwaukee steel, just like the fenders. Then we painstakingly finish it with one of our premium paintjobs, and top it with a 3-D chrome badge. Not a decal. Fire up the engine and you hear the pure signature rumble of a Harley-Davidson V-Twin, tuned to perfection in our state-of-the-art sound facility in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin USA. In other words, from the rock-solid belt final drive all the way forward to the Café-racer speed screen derived from deep in our factory custom heritage, there is no mistaking what the bikes in our newest family are. 100% pure Harley-Davidson® motorcycle.
Fact: get yourself to a part of town where interesting things are happening and you’ll see some rad custom bikes loaded with dark, aggressive style. Chances are they started life as a Harley-Davidson Street® model. We built our newest line of bikes from the no-nonsense blacked-out wheels up to be the ultimate blank canvas for customizing. Of course, each one is also first and foremost a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, so even fresh off the line it’s a lean, mean and eye-popping machine. Every inch of the up-swept two-into-one exhaust is black. The first time we’ve done that since the ‘70s, when it was a signature part of the famous XLCR Café Racer. You also see a shout-out to renegade ‘70s street bike culture in the minimalist speed screen adorning the blacked out front end. In short, you’ve got a machine loaded with Dark Custom™ attitude.
Here's a short video shot outside our showroom, a walk around and then a little twist of the throttle... enjoy!
The new Harley-Davidson® Street 750 has arrived at Harleyworld Chesterfield and I’ve been using it on my daily commute – which is exactly what this bike is made for!
The Street 750 is the first new Harley®, built from the ground up, in 14 years – the last one was the V-Rod and the new Street 750 is also liquid cooled, like the V-Rod. It’s really quick with plenty of power available in every gear and has the slickest 6 speed gearbox I’ve ever known on a Harley®.
Its also very light and easy to handle – its goes where you point it, which makes it great for the newly qualified rider at whom it is aimed. The exhaust has been designed with a high ground clearance which means this bike will go around corners. A dual seat and pillion footpegs are standard and the front brake calliper has been designed by Brembo to give it plenty of stopping power.
Harley-Davidson® has produced this motorcycle to target the younger rider and with an electronic restriction available to download for anyone with an A2 license, an affordable £5,795 price point, the Street 750 ticks all the right boxes.
But even if you’re not a newly qualified rider it’s still a great bike, I’ve been riding years and love this bike, its another great entry to the Dark Custom range with 90 accessories available to make it your own. At £5795 in Gloss Black, for me, it’s the best cruiser bike under £6000.
