The Harley-Davidson Street Rod is a sportier take on Harley's best-selling Street 750 entry-level cruiser. It has been launched in India at Rs 5.86 lakh, ex-showroom which is Rs 95,000 more than the Street 750. The Street Rod gets styling inspired by cafe racers and Harley's dirt trackers. The new design features a new headlamp cowl, drag-style handlebar with bar-end mirrors, new tail section, LED tail lamps and LED side indicators. The engine and chassis are carried over from the Street 750 though both are reworked for sportiness. The revised motor makes 11 percent more power and 5 percent more torque than the Street 750. The chassis of the Harley-Davidson cruiser gets a sharper rake and upgraded suspension with added travel. We expect the Street Rod to be locally manufactured like the Street 750.

First impressions: It takes a lot to be really good at it. It's completely different to being on the street; the back end gets loose and you are all over the place. It's not just about putting your foot down and drifting through the line by chucking the bike into a corner. You really need to get some dirt on your boots, see how it feels to be at the edge of traction and charge your opponent in a cloud of dust, leaving you clueless of the left turn ahead. To best describe it in words, it is scary, unnerving at first, but fall a few times, grow some chest hair, and you start to get the hang of it.
My flat track experience started the moment my colleague sent me a video compilation of flat track crashes, which was received the moment I switched on my phone after landing. You must be thinking what a messed up way to kick-start the journey right? Well, the feeling was mutual.
