Harley-Davidson Unveils New Street Rod 750 For Urban Riders
Harley-Davidson unveils the Street Rod 750, the third bike in its 2017 Street lineups, aimed at urban riders. The popular motorcycle company had built this bike as a sportier, cafe racer-slash-flat-track-style version of the Street 750 cruiser. The new bike shares a frame and fuel tank with the Street 750, but with new tires and wheels, brakes, fork, fender, headlight, and fairing.
The bike is the result of feedback from the reigning Streets and Sportsters of European markets. Even the fuel tank is significantly repositioned forward, as are the seating position and foot pegs to shift the center of gravity forward. This gives the bike a sportier feel and appearance.
According to Harley-Davidson, the new Street Rod's High Output Revolution X 750 engine produces 18 percent more horsepower and 8 percent more torque. The engine is built with a larger air box, modified four-valve cylinder heads, and high-lift camshafts. Other performance-oriented changes include a pair of 300mm front discs for increased braking power over the Street 750s single front disc, The Drive reports.
"It really delivers a punch between 3,000 and 5,000 rpm, power you can always feel and use in real-world riding situations," Mathew Weber, the Street Rod’s chief engineer, says. Liquid cooling helps maintain performance and rider comfort in urban traffic, he adds. Lead designer Chetan Shedjale explains that the new bike is bathed in a liberal dose of Dark Custom styling to make it look tough and aggressive, the Journal Sentinel reports.
Harley-Davidson's new Street Rod 750 bike has antilock brakes and a security system as standard equipment. The bike boasts a larger, drag racing-inspired airbox assembly. The street bike comes in three colors of Charcoal Denim, Olive Gold, and Vivid Black. Available in dealerships this month, pricing for the Street Rod is $8,699 for Vivid Black, and $8,994 for Olive Gold and Charcoal Denim.
