Harley-Davidson Street Makes a Comeback in India

Harley-Davidson Street 750 and Street Rod are back in action, registering 58 units and 14 units respectively in March 2019. The popular middleweight products were in news from the last few months regarding the zero unit sales number and now, the comeback claims that the braking issue faced by both the bikes has been resolved. The brand was facing difficulty in solving the problem and decided to halt production for the time that went into finding a solution. The number of units will rise with time as those looking for premium cruisers have no other option than buying the Street 750 for INR 5.33 lakh and the Street Rod for INR 6.53 lakh. The prices mentioned here are ex-showroom India.

Last year, the sales number for March 2018 was highly satisfying for the brand. Street 750 got 155 units during the 31-day period while Street Rod was good for 134 units. Apart from the 650cc Royal Enfield Twins, Harley-Davidson Street is the highest selling motorcycle series with a twin-cylinder engine, leaving just Kawasaki Ninja 300 on the rival list in terms of sales. Other 2-cylinder products that fall within the segment are four motorcycles from Benelli and one from Yamaha. The high number for Harley-Davidson shows that Indian buyers are still more interested in cruisers once the INR 5 lakh mark is crossed.

Most Popular Answers for Harley-Davidson Street
I am 6 feet tall, which one should I buy – Harley-Davidson Street 750 or KTM RC 390?
2022-12-29 06:06:39 AM
Both the bikes are excellent performers and define an affordable way of maintaining performance as well as the brand name. KTM RC390 is the most value for money performance bike of India as no other machine at just INR 2,14,000 would bring a 0-100 kmph sprint time of 5.7 seconds. It comes with a single cylinder 373.2 cc engine while on the other hand, no other Harley Davidson or similar capacity bike can be bought for INR 4,69,000. The 750 cc, twin cylinder motor produces 59 Nm of torque and sprints from 0-100 kmph in just 6.15 seconds. The 229 kg cruiser versus the 166 kg supersport machine is a tough decision but the only factor that can help you in choosing one is your budget and preferred riding style. I would suggest you to keep your Classic Chrome with you and then buy the RC390 as it would bring both the cruiser and supersport team to your garage.
Is Harley-Davidson Street 500 available in White shade?

Harley Davidson 500 is available only in shades like Blue, Red, Black and Grey. It is not available in White shade and even it is not on sale in India currently. The motorcycle rides on the same chassis and wheels as the Street 750 and uses a smaller engine for various markets around the world. It still weighs 200+ kg and carries a 3.5 gallon fuel tank. It looks identical to the 750 cc Harley and won't be launched in India soon. It returns a combined mileage figure of 64.4 mpg.
