Harley-Davidson Street

The Street family runs with a sportier-than-usual urban look typified by a low and wide stance and delivers crisp handling and performance. Power comes from the liquid-cooled Revolution X V-Twin plant that shares a case with the six-speed transmission for a compact drivetrain, and the line has its own frame and front ends. ABS protection is the only electronic option, and that coupled with its size, power and cost, the Street family is clearly aimed at the entry-level market.

Harley’s hot little urban commuter

Traffic-carving performance wasn’t the first thing I thought of when hearing the name Harley-Davidson, but the MoCo started changing that perception with the new-in-2017 Street Rod 750. While it is, in fact, based on the Street 750, multiple changes in the setup and equipment turn it into another animal entirely. Shorter steering geometry, a more aggressive rider triangle and a more powerful engine come together in H-D’s decisive push into the sport-standard market.

2016 - 2020 Harley-Davidson Street 500 / Street 750

It’s a no-nonsense approach to a bar-hopping café racer

Powered by a Revolution V-twin engine, the Street 500 and 750 are premium Harley-Davidson even though they’re geared toward the budget-minded, entry-level crowd. Just because the price is low doesn’t mean they skimped on quality. The Street siblings come with a steel teardrop tank and fenders covered in the deep, rich color, and flawless finish that long ago made Harley-Davidson the benchmark for premium paint on a motorcycle. The cherry on top is the chrome tank badge — not a decal, as you might expect in an economy-priced bike, but a three-dimensional tank medallion — as Harley’s pledge to you that you are riding a premium quality machine.

And a guide to help you extract maximum mileage off a tank of fuel from your motorcycle

The beginning of this century saw the world views changing gradually towards climate change and the need to preserve the environment. This, along with stringent policies, has forced the manufacturers to develop motorcycles that can run cleaner fuel and extract the maximum economy from it, sometimes even at the cost of performance.

Bad news for people who seek the element of thrill, but a pretty good one for someone living in urban jungles where folks prefer commuting on a motorcycle rather thank a car for its practicality and frugal fuel-efficiency. Then there are us few who love the idea of putting serious miles on two-wheels and living the adventure.

We here have compiled a list to give you the best available tools for such situations and save some money on gas while at it.

Harley Davidson commissioned these Street Rod Snow bikes

Harley Davidson commissioned these Street Rod Snow bikes

To haul riders around the Winter X Games

In its recent adventures, Harley Davidson has been seemingly busy with increasing involvement of snow and ice competition. Recently, the Milwaukee brand entered the Snowquake 2018, a snow dirt event in the Italian Alps, and then started the Snow Hill Climb, its own event at this year’s Winter X Games where riders drag up the hill on purpose-built Snow Hill Climb Sportsters.

For the same event, Harley came up with an ingenious idea and teamed up with Aaron and Shaun Guardado from Suicide Machine Company to build two snow bikes with skis and belts from a Street Rod 750. These bikes would act as safety vehicles for the event, and to haul athletes around between events.

Now that’s a phenomenon.

Donates 8 Street Rods to the Snow Dirt event

What it is, is a Dirt Quake on Ice. As simple as it sounds, the dirt track race bikes challenge each other on Europe’s finest snow and ice race track in the Italian Alps.

For 2018, the event is in its third edition and has managed to grab a few eyeballs already. Including the folks of Harley Davidson, who have committed to giving 8 ice track-spec Street Rod 750s. They have invited journalists along with ex WSBK and MotoGP rider, Ruben Xaus to take their chance at each other on the ice.

Harley-Davidson Unleashes New Street Rod 750

Harley-Davidson Unleashes New Street Rod 750

Not too long ago, Harley-Davidson execs stated that The MoCo planned on releasing 50 new models over the next five years. It was assumed that many would be based on existing platforms, and some of the more cynical of us posited that it would likely be nothing more than minor differences in trim packages on just the “traditional” Harleys such as the FL, FX and XL variants. Well, both groups were partly right so far, anyway. H-D’s new model is a quite heavily modified Street 750, definitely not one of the old-school families, and definitely not just a minor trim package.

2015 Harley-Davidson Street 500

Striking a balance between tradition and innovation can be difficult and expensive for a motorcycle manufacturer, and given the recent strides in technology coupled with increasingly stringent EPA regulations, this has never been truer than it is today. Harley-Davidson proves, once again, that it is possible with the release of its Street 500, which borrows from the XL (Sportster) and earlier K-Model, with strong echoes of the Cafe Racer.

The Street 500 provides an entry-level bike for performance-minded and budget-conscious riders looking to break into the brand that has defined American-made motorcycles for generations, without breaking the bank as well. While it lacks the longer legs, comfort and cargo capacity of the cruisers and touring-bikes on the highway, it is perfectly suited as an around-town bike (read: barhopper), and the rider never has to feel like he is wrestling a WWE star when maneuvering at low speeds, looking for that elusive ’safe’ parking spot.

More on the Harley-Davidson Street

Harley-Davidson’s Street family offers a sportier ride than the Sporty proper, and is meant to serve the entry-level market as well as riders who are looking for an alternative to the usual Sportster fare. Since the Street models are built to have a light lift weight from resting position on the jiffy stand to the upright position, it should be easy to manage even to the less-than-buffed-up legs.

Through its development so far, the Street range runs with a 494 cc mill in its “500” platform and a 749 cc plant in its “750” model. The newest version of the liquid-cooled, 60-degree Revolution engine powers the line, and this third-generation engine is identified by an “X” designator.

A small bubble screen gives the Street line a bit of a café look that builds on its sporty urban styling. The factory stuffed a six-speed transmission in to help you keep the engine in its usable powerband range.
