The Davidson Street 750 was the star two-wheeler at the 2014 Auto Expo where it was officially launched. It holds the distinction of being the first Davidson motorcycle to be manufactured in India and this was the key in its competitive pricing. The cruiser bike has been priced at Rs 4.91 lakh a(ex-showroom, Delhi) and it was recently updated with ABS as many people had complained the lack of it and new colour options. The Street 750 has a classic cruiser styling but unlike most American cruiser motorcycles that are drenched in chrome, the Street 750 adopts an all-black theme. It is a good looking bike but the compact dimension is something that doesn’t appeal many.
The bike was designed after taking feedback from over 3,000 bikers across the globe most of whom were youngsters and the bike was designed with an urban theme. At the time of launch, the new liquid-cooled RevolutionX engine was the first new Harley-Davidson engine in the last 13 years. The 750cc, liquid-cooled, V-Twin motor delivers around 55 to 60PS, while torque rating is 65Nm at 4,000rpm. Power is transmitted to the rear wheel via belt-drive that is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. Davidson hasn’t claimed any mileage figures but in real world conditions, the Street 750 has a fuel efficiency of around 20kmpl.
The low seat height of 720mm makes the bike accessible to shorter riders and it weighs 233kg. Braking is done by disc brakes on both ends and ABS has been made standard on the 2017 Harley-Davidson Street 750. The American cruiser competes against the Hyosung Aquila Pro and the soon to be launched Kawasaki Vulcan.

We ride the new Dark Custom trio of the Harley-Davidson Street 750, Iron 883 and the Forty Eight on the busy streets of Tokyo
It is said that change is the only constant in life and Harley-Davidson seems to adhere to this thought rather seriously. 2014 was a great year for Harley-Davidson India as they rode in the Street 750 and many other products along with constant dealership expansion. Despite the healthy sales, the American bikemaker felt that it needed to improve its current portfolio. And for this purpose rode in the updated versions of its motorcycles under the Dark Custom moniker. In the Indian context, the models under Dark Custom range include the Harley-Davidson Iron 883, Forty-Eight and the Street 750. The motorcycles haven’t undergone a drastic evolution but subtle updates based on customer feedback to further refine the offerings. We were invited to ride the refreshed Dark Custom range through the glitzy streets of Tokyo in pouring rain which wasn’t the most perfect day for riding but it definitely added a fun quotient to the journey.
We will concentrate our attention on the most important of the refreshed Dark Custom range – Harley-Davidson Street 750. The Street 750 is definitely the most important product in its Indian portfolio given the fact...read more »

Harley Davidson Street 750 Highlights
The most affordable Harley-Davidson offers a motor eager to throttle responses and acceleration is brisk. Gear ratios are suitably distributed and gearbox shifts are precise.
