Harley-Davidson has launched the new 2017 Street Rod in India. The motorcycle has been priced at INR 586,000 (ex-showromm Delhi). The motorcycle receives High Output Revolution X 750 engine which is claimed to produce more torque through the mid-range and power at the top-end. The bigger hitting motor is said to be matched with sharper chassis geometry and aggressive riding position. Harley-Davidson has also upgraded the suspension, brakes and wheels.
The motorcycle is drenched in Harley-Davidson Dark Custom styling (plus hints of flat-track steel) and oozes purpose, with a hunched forward, ready-for-action stance. The Street Rod will be offered in three colour options: Vivid Black, Charcoal Denim, Olive Gold.
The liquid-cooled, single OHC 8V 60° V-Twin High Output Revolution X 750 engine produces 11% more horsepower and 5% more torque than the Street 750. The peak power arrives at 8,250 rpm, with peak torque delivered at 4,000rpm. It’s tuned to deliver strongly between 4,000 and 5,000 rpm.
The Street Rod 750 features a larger volume air box and new dual 42mm throttle bodies, new four-valve cylinder heads and high-lift camshafts, plus a higher-volume exhaust muffler – all designed to increase airflow and efficiency. Compression ratio is raised from 11.0:1 to 12.0:1 and the redline goes from 8,000 to 9,000 rpm.
The motorcycle features 43 mm inverted forks and triple camps, topped with a new speed screen (colour-matched to the bodywork except for a black centre insert). A new tail section, with perforated rear mudguard, lightens the rear with an all new LED tail light with H-D signature lighting.
The Harley-Davidson® Street Rod is open for booking and will be on display across all Harley-Davidson dealerships in the country from March 15, 2017 onwards. Motorcycle enthusiasts will have the opportunity to test ride the Harley-Davidson Street Rod from April 21, 2017.
