Harley Davidson’s newest addition has been launched - the Street Rod 750 at INR 5.86 lakhs (ex-showroom, New Delhi). We consider the Street Rod 750 to be a more powerful modern interpretation of the popular Street 750 cruiser, which it is primarily based on. Taking inspiration from a larger harley, the XR1200X, the overall design gives the 750 a sportier look providing an aggressive driving position with new handle bars and new foldable bar end rearview mirrors.
With respect to power, the new Street Rod 750 uses the 749 cc liquid-cooled, single OHC, 8 valve, 60-degree V-Twin High Output Revolution X engine that produces 11 percent more horsepower and 5 per cent more torque than the Street 750.
The new Harley-Davidson Street Rod also gets more sophisticated hardware with 43 mm USD forks up front with the fork rake tightened from 32-degrees to 27-degrees for quicker steering. The new rear twin shock absorbers feature an external reservoir to increase fluid capacity and maintain damping consistency. They now offer an increased travel of 117 mm, up by 31 per cent.
While there is an increased price of approximately INR 80,000 when compared with the Street 750, the Harley-Davidson Street Rod is modern and appealing which should keep its enthusiasts and aspiring customers happy, particularly considering the increased competition it is facing with the advent of the many premium motorcycle companies looking to displace its current leadership position.
