2014 Harley-Davidson Street

MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Harley-Davidson revealed on Monday, November 4th two new Dark Custom™ motorcycles. The Harley-Davidson Street™ 750 and Street™ 500 motorcycles are built on the first all-new platform from H-D in 13 years.

Company officials say in a news release, the Street 750 and Street 500 from Harley-Davidson are built for an urban environment. Each motorcycle features the new Revolution X engine, designed to match the demands of stop-and-go traffic with nimble agility, while delivering instant throttle response to escape city gridlock.

The Revolution X engine will be housed in a new, narrow and lean chassis built for agility, with a super-low seat height, new suspension and broad handlebar sweep that provides confidence and maneuverability when managing tight turns and fast moves. Both signature Dark Custom motorcycles feature a premium, minimalist style that serves as a blank canvas for riders to customize.

The Harley-Davidson Street 750 and Street 500 will be rolling into dealerships in select markets starting in 2014. More information is available at h-d.com/street.

    Are they made in India ? Carn’t wait to see them riding in the HOG chapters with there L’s. Don’t know how they will stack up against the all American made ‘Indian Scout’

    I cannot wait for them to hit the show room so I can part with my cash a ride out on one …. smart move by harley davidson ….. I’m 55 years old and have riden since I was 14 …… i dont want a big bike … i dont want a super bike ….. i want a bike to get around town on and go for a country ride every now and then and this suits me just perfect

    Not to worry about foreign production. I read from another article that all units sold to U.S./Canadian riders will be built at their plant in K.C., MO. Indian-sold units will be built in India. Nothing wrong with domestic production for each country in my mind.

    No reason why Harley should not try to get in on this part of the market. The older riders with big bikes are not going to get younger.

    I am 72, have rode Harleys for 35 years. Had to stop,Can’t wait to get on one and continue riding for another 10 years or so. I still have all my jackets and stuff. Would have bought a Hummer if they still made one.

    Going to get one for my 5’3″ wife, it’s the right size, ABS brakes and it’s USA built. Belt not chain. Fuel injected. Water cooled is better in Florida.

    Even the 883 is a big powerful bike for a noobie rider. I’m buying Harley stock after seeing this.

    I think it’s a great idea. I had a Honda VT500 Ascot, that was a water cooled 500cc v twin, with flat-track styling, and I thought it would have been a perfect bike for the Harley line-up. Kind of like a “Sportster Lite”. This bike reminds me a lot of it. I’m 60 years old, and don’t want a big heavy cruiser, or a 100hp, 200mph super-bike. Just something to tool around town on, and an occasional weekend trip, and at an affordable price. I think H-D has got a winner on it’s hands.

    YESTERDAY I READ IN THE NEWSPAPER ANOTHER HARDLEY A MOTORCYCLE DAVIDSON. IT SEEMS THAT H/D HAS BEEN MAKING THE SAME BIKE SINCE THE 30’S BUT STILL CAN’T GET IT RIGHT. THE NEW BIG ONES ARE BEING RECALLED BECAUSE OF FAULTY CLUTCHES THAT WON’T DISENGAGE COMPLETELY AND FUEL LEAKS. THE CLUTCHES CHINESE OR INDIAN MADE, ARE NOT GOING TO BE REPLACED, JUST REBUILT, BY DEALERS. 50 GRAND FOR A BIKE THAT SHOULD GET NEW CLUTCHES ON A RECALL. YEP THAT’S THE H/D RIP OFF. THANK YOU COME AGAIN.
