Harley-Davidson has launched the 10th anniversary edition of their most affordable motorcycle, the Street 750. This limited edition motorcycle will only have 300 copies sold in India and has been priced at INR 5.47 lakh, ex-showroom. As usual, the Street 750 even in this 10th anniversary iteration is built in India, and is the entry-level product to the world of Harley-Davidson. Bookings are now open.
Harley-Davidson is celebrating 10 years in the Indian market, and hence this limited edition model. Do note, the bike has not completed 10 years in its life cycle yet, so don’t get confused in that department. This limited edition Street 750 motorcycle comes in a special dark themed paint scheme and the fuel tank and rear panel have a shimmery finish on them. The bike remains unchanged mechanically.
At the moment, the Harley-Davidson Street 750 is BSIV compliant, but the brand revealed that it would become the first motorcycle (engine) to get BSVI compliant in India. Powering the Street 750 is a 749cc, liquid-cooled, Revolution X, V-Twin motor producing 60 Nm of torque and matched to a 6-speed gearbox. The Street 750 was also updated with a dual-channel ABS setup later in its life cycle.
Deliveries for the Harley-Davidson Street 750 10th Anniversary Edition will being in September 2019. This limited edition could also be a way of clearing all the old engines before the BSVI deadline kicks in, as the Street 750 even though an affordable Harley-Davidson model, doesn’t really fly off the shelves. The standard Street 750 retails for a starting price of INR 5.34 lakh, ex-showroom.
Harley-Davidson had previously recalled the Street 750 over an issue with the fuel pump.
Now in terms of rivals, one can consider the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 & Continental GT 650 to be really giving this Street 750 a tough time. Especially when it comes to price, which is less than half really. But then, a Royal Enfield isn’t exactly a Harley-Davidson class, or is it?
