Urban, Authentic Harley-Davidson®
The Street™ 750 from Harley-Davidson® is built for an urban environment. It features the new Revolution X™ engine, designed to match the demands of stop-and-go traffic with nimble agility, while delivering instant throttle response to escape city gridlock.
The Revolution X™ engine is housed in a new, narrow and lean chassis, with a super-low seat, new suspension and broad handlebar sweep that provides confidence and maneuverability when managing tight turns and fast moves. This signature Dark Custom™ motorcycle features a premium, minimalist style that serves as a blank canvas for riders to customise.
“The Harley-Davidson® Street™ 750 can manage the unique challenges faced by riders in South African cities. Maneuverability, unique Dark Custom™ style and liquid-cooled power meet the needs of urban riders in a stylish genuine Harley-Davidson® package,” says Carney.
The Dark Custom™ lineup includes the iconic Sportster Iron 883®, Sportster Forty-Eight®, Dyna Street Bob and the Dyna Fat Bob®.
