Harley-Davidson Rolls Out First New Platform in 13 Years with Street 750 and Street 500 Motorcycles
For the first time in 13 years, Harley-Davidson is introducing an all-new platform to its storied line of motorcycles.
Revealed in an announcement on November 5, the new Harley-Davidson Street 750 and Street 500 motorcycles bring riders the same look, sound and feel they’ve come to expect from their Harley-Davidson bikes, but with a new lean build and light frame. The two newest additions to the “Dark Custom” line of motorcycles are designed for the next generation of young, urban Harley-Davidson fanatics.
Lower to the ground and significantly lighter than most Harley-Davidson models, the two bikes in the Street series are designed to nimbly and efficiently navigate heavy city traffic and escape gridlock. Built to tackle tight turns with unmatched maneuverability, both the Street 750 and Street 500 motorcycles feature the new liquid-cooled Revolution X V-Twin engine. And with a price range that falls well below many of the bigger Harley-Davidson models riders know and love, both Street bikes are affordable even on a tight budget.
But don’t let the low cost and smaller size of the Street series fool you – these bikes come with the distinctive look and sound that let everyone on the block know you’re riding a Harley-Davidson. Featuring a blank canvas designed to let riders run wild with customization, the new Street 750 and Street 500 bikes are beautiful bikes that will only get better looking as our riders add their personal touches.
“These new bikes are leaner, yet still have a mean streak – they’re the real deal, made of real steel,” said Mark-Hans Richer, senior vice president and chief marketing officer of Harley-Davidson Motor Company. “Both the Street 750 and Street 500 were designed with thousands of hours of input from young adults in cities around the world. This input guided both the attitude and capabilities of these motorcycles. They are proof that being customer-led continues to be a core driver of our product development process.”
The Street 750 and Street 500 motorcycles are scheduled for availability in 2014, but you can stop by our New Hampshire Harley-Davidson dealership today to learn more about these new lightweight bikes.
