Harley Davidson is a renowned motorcycle brand best known for its cruisers. Harley introduced the Street 750 in India as its entry level model a few years ago. Priced at about 5.5 lakh rupees, this motorcycle became a hot seller but was still too expensive for most enthusiasts. The used motorcycle market is now seeing a slew of Harley Davidson Street 750 cruisers selling at very affordable prices. Here’s one such example from 2014, which has just run 8,900 Kms. It even has accessories worth Rs. 2 lakh installed, and the asking price is just Rs. 2.75 lakhs. This makes it cheaper than even the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650, which costs over Rs. 3 lakh in Mumbai for most variants. The Harley had a bigger engine, liquid cooling and also a much better sound track now that it’s running an after market exhaust. You can directly get in touch with the seller here.
What it does miss though is ABS. The owner of this motorcycle has upgraded the front brakes through the recall that Harley Davidson announced for Street 750, after many owners complained of weak brakes. So, that’s another key change that this used motorcycle features. As for accessories fitted on the motorcycle, there’s a Motomiu long exhaust, a back rest for the pillion, a crash guard and a custom handlebar.
The engine is bone stock. The Harley Davidson Street 750 is powered by a 750cc, V-Twin liquid cooled engine that runs four valve heads and a twin overhead camshaft. This engine is rev happy – unlike the ones on bigger Harleys – and is known for great low end torque. Unlike the signature po-ta-to exhaust note that the bigger air cooled Harley Davidsons make, this one has a deep, angry rumble.
The engine makes 58 Bhp of power at 8000 RPM and torque of 59 Nm at 3750 RPM. A five speed manual gearbox is standard and the rear wheel is driven by a belt-drive. The Street 750 can accelerate to 100 Kph in about 6 seconds while top speed is about 175 Kmph. This bike is not about speed though. It’s more about cruising around town and enjoying quick bursts of intense acceleration while you’re at it. This motorcycle is great for highway riding as well and is a lot more refined than the bigger, more expensive Harleys mainly due to the 750cc ‘RevolutionX’ engine that it runs. Maintaining this motorcycle will not be very expensive. However, you’ll pay more than you’d pay to maintain a Royal Enfield Interceptor. Although the Street 750 is built in India, spares are still priced at a premium thanks to the motorcycle’s positioning.
