Harley Davidson has changed the offer of motorcycles and has decided to offer cheaper motorcycles suitable for drivers who are just entering the world of cruisers. For this purpose we present Harely Davidson Street 750, a cruiser for every driver.
Harley Davidson Street 750
As an amateur of sports and then naked motorcycles, I caught myself thinking about what cruiser would be best for me. Given that I do not have much experience in this segment, I went to see and study various models. I was hit by the Harely Davidson Street 750 for the eye. Since I did not have much touch with the HD brand, I was convinced that it was a expensive motorcycle, but that’s another positive thing that surprised me.
By further study I concluded that this is a highly capable motorcycle with a good aggregate. For Street 750, Harley Davidson developed a brand new two-cylinder aggregate in the V configuration. A water cooled 749 cm³ engine has a very good torque at low and medium revs, making sure it’s not a bad and boring motorcycle. The maximum declared torque of 59 Nm to only 4,000 RPM in combination with a six-speed gearbox provides a perfectly good combination for enjoying the road.
Street 750 with all liquids weighs 229 Kg and is also the easiest model in Harley Davidson’s offer. Street 750 may have the shortest wheelbase in its class, if compared with the Kawasaki Vulcan S model. The seat height is 720 mm, and taller drivers may have problems finding a comfortable position. Street 750 has one disc diameter 300 mm ahead and one disc also 300 mm in diameter in the back. Both discs bite Brembo brake calipers with two pistons. Street 750 has the possibility of using an ABS system. The only complaint that can be placed on the Street 750 account is the rear brake, that is, the rear brake lever that does not offer enough fell, and it is possible to force the rear wheel locking (if there is no ABS system in the package).
The instrument panel is circular in analogue – digital combination. The current speed is shown in analog until the distance traveled is displayed in digital form. The dashboard is generally a little stiff with information, but for an urban cruiser, it provides quite enough data, although it would not be disregarding that there is a gear indicator as well as an rev counter. The fuel tank is 13.1 liters and with a 4.3 liters fuel consumption, it provides an autonomy of approximately 300 km.
Overall, Harley Davidson made a perfectly solid cruiser for those who would ride around the city and from time to time make shorter journeys outside the city. Apart from a well-balanced aggregate, good manageability and attractive design, the Street 750 has a very good price that will surely absorb new customers who want to afford themselves a Harley. And price for this very good motorcycle is starting at $ 7,599.
