Harley-Davidson Street 750 coming to UK

New entry-level Harley in UK dealers by September

HARLEY-DAVIDSON’S Street 750 will go on sale in the UK this September, the firm has announced.

It’s one of two new smaller-capacity models, the other being the identical-looking Street 500, which were unveiled at the Eicma Milan show in 2013 as Harley’s first all-new motorcycle ‘platform’ in 13 years.  

Both use a liquid-cooled V-twin engine, of 749 and 494cc respectively.

At the time of the unveiling, Harley said the only European markets to see the 750 in 2014 would be Italy, Spain and Portugal, with other countries having to wait until 2015.

Confirmation that it’s now our turn came at a press test ride of Harley-Davidson’s new prototype electric bike, the LiveWire. A spokesman said during a press briefing that the Street 750 would be in UK dealerships by September.  

Prices in Europe range from €7,350 (£5,280) in Spain to €7,800 (£5,603) in Italy.

The Street 500 is aimed primarily at emerging markets including India.
