The Street 500
...and the 750

HERE are more pictures of the new Street 500 and 750 models unveiled by Harley-Davidson at the EICMA Milan motorcycle show this week.

The firm says they will be on sale next year in the US, Italy, Spain, Portugal and India, and more countries in 2015.

A spokesman said: 'More detailed information regarding the new Harley-Davidson Street 750 and Street 500 availability in these markets will be announced in the coming months. We plan to expand to additional markets in 2015 and will announce timing and locations at a later date.

'Pricing will vary by market and will be announced when the bike is available for retail sale in each market.'

The Street 500 and 750, which look identicial apart from a sticker on the engine, are Harley's first all-new models in 13 years. Up close they look like Harleys but smaller. Do we want them in the UK?

It looks allright, but as a Harley it needs chrome parts, for sure that Harley will do something about. If that engine is good, and the price too it could be good sales.

Might make a nice Retro styled XR750 Flat Tracker...

I think the look is okay, though they definitely stole some styling cues from the mid-80s Honda cruisers.

if the seat is 25'' or lower they have a definite buyer...my wife wants a bigger more powerful cruiser than he rebel 250 but seat must be 25'' max as she is only 4'10'' in heels she has been trying loads of bikes with no luck so far she would also need pull back bars but on and HD thats no problem .

the only alternative so dar is Yamaha xv 950 .

Authentic Indian Cuisine...

Sons of Anarchy looks!
Don't see these bikes as a big hit in U.S.
Prevailing do-rag biker culture views waterheads as crap regardless of branding. Radiators are too modern and big.
If it wasn't in style in the 1950s it ain't in style now.

Looks like The Motor Company is imitating the much maligned business practices of it's former owners AMF. Too much diversification in a strong USA cruiser market. Buell had the right parallel direction for H-D not a mini Harley made in India... hope I'm wrong for HDs sake but sales in the USA will be dismal. Won't be considereda "real" Harley, I think the hipsters habe ttaken over in Milwaukee.

Ok heard today that USA versions to be built at Kansas City plant

"Built" in the sense that some redneck uncrates it, puts the wheels on, and slaps a Colonial flag over the Made In India sticker?

I think its good that a company is bringing more new designs to the market, irrespective of whether it Kawasaki, Honda or Harley, Bringing this out can only reinforce the market, attract new riders to go out and take their test and ultimately owned that 'Harley' they've always wanted but without the steep price tag.

OK it may not be everyone's bike, but Harley know their market, and they've got it down to a pretty good response.

After going to my local 'bike' shop that sells mainstream bikes, then going to a Harley delaer, they definitely knew how to look after me.

Nice, clean workshop and shop, free hot drinks from proper cups, gave my kids tokens to use the sweet machine, nice new leather sofa to sit on whilst the bike is being service.

Down at the local bike shop, walls that haven't seem a lick of paint in years, 80's style d├ęcor, torn and oily seats, Klix coffee (say no more), rude sales people (and this is a major MCN dealer of the year from a little while back)

They may be more but the buying experience is second to none. (I didn't buy one in the end though)
