The journey of Harley-Davidson in India has been an exceptional one, so far. Not too long ago the American bike maker entered our two-wheeler market (2009 to be precise) and now the iconic US brand has become an integral part of our country’s rapidly evolving biking landscape. Considering its premium price tag it demands, having sold close to 5,000 units in less than five years is quite a feat.

 

It seems that Harley was quick in spotting the potential of the Indian market and started assembling its CKD bikes, which in turn helped them achieve a more competitive pricing. Taking the Indian operations to the next level and in a bid to enter the volume, it has now forayed into local production which in turn has given birth to the Street 750.

With the focus on producing a large number locally, the market was expecting the makers to keep the pricing reasonable. And it did comes as a pleasant surprise when Anoop Prakash (MD, Harley-Davidson India) announced during the 2014 Auto Expo, that it would be sold from just Rs 4.1 lakh ex-showroom Delhi. Its cut-throat pricing meant that Harley-Davidson aficionados could now own the cult badge. The question is, at this affordable pricing, is the Street 750 a true blue Harley-Davidson or has the American bike maker cut too many corners to build a bike for a price? There has been a lot of curiosity around the motorcycle, so we decided to spend a sunny day in Delhi with the Street 750 to find the answer.
