In a development that might take you by surprise, it has emerged that Harley Davidson India might NOT launch the recently unveiled 2014 Street 500 in India! The revelation comes through Harley Davidson India’s official Facebook page (in a reply to a query posted by our friend Mvkss Sandeep.)
That while it logically makes sense for Harley Davidson to introduce the new Street 500 in India, they have not made any official statement about it yet. However, with this update on FB, one thing that is for sure is that the Street 750 is coming here first. The new Street 500 however, may or may not follow. However, we would like to repeat the it does make a lot of sense for Harley Davidson to introduce the Street 500 in India. It may be noted that both the 2014 Street 500 and Street 750 would be manufactured in India and local manufacturing, along with heavy localization, means that the bike maker could price the two new bikes ultra competitively. It is being guessed that the Street 500, if at all it is launched in India, could go on sale at a price of INR 4.25 lakhs. The Street 750, which is surely headed to us, would have a price tag of approx INR 5.5 lakhs.
The new Harley Davidson Street 750 and Street 500 motorcycles are based on the first all-new platform from the iconic bike maker in 14 years. Harley says that these bikes are built for urban environments with all new liquid cooled Revolution X powertrains, promise nimble agility and have typical modern day Harley Davidson styling.
The 2014 Harley Davidson Street 750’s motor displaces approx 750cc and has a max power of more than 52bhp. The engine has a V Twin layout and benefits from liquid cooling and fuel injection.The engine comes mated to a 6 speed manual ‘box and the new mo’bike rides 2 inches higher than the Iron 883.
The new 2014 Harley Davidson Street 750 will be available in two paint options- red and black.
