V-Twin muscle specifically designed for urban riding. Its liquid cooled
to maintain peak performance no matter how high the mercury climbs or how
long youre in gridlock. Theres a single overhead cam. Four valves
per head. And a smooth-shifting 6-speed transmission. It all translates to
one thing: instant response to the twist you give the throttle when stop turns

seat is super low. The suspension is tuned for the roughest urban roads. Youve

tight turns and fast moves. One opening in that honking mass of sheet metal,
and youre gone.
Not just a sound. A signature.
No one on your block will mistake the note coming from the upswept exhaust
on the new Harley-Davidson Street motorcycle. This is the pure, deep-thumping
Harley-Davidson V-Twin engine rumble; the kind that hits your ears and reaches
all the way down to the pit of your stomach. Tuned to perfection in our state-of-the-art
sound-testing facility in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA. Instantly recognized
on any corner in the world.
Take a close look at any Harley-Davidson motorcycle you see parked under
the neon lights. Premium to the last detail. The Harley-Davidson Street
750 and 500 motorcycles are no exception to that rule. Steel tank and fenders.

and gas cap locks. Rock-solid belt final drive. Painstakingly tight fit and
finish. Intuitive hand controls. Because only a motorcycle were proud

on the look of the machine. The Harley-Davidson Street is a blank canvas.
Ready for you to paint with your attitude and style. There are as many ways
to customize it as there are riders. There are no rules. Let everyone else

By the street. For the street.
When the street is where you live, it starts to live in you. True of a rider.
True of a motorcycle. The look of the Harley-Davidson Street 750 and
500 motorcycles comes from the street. Born out of the custom tradition of
tearing down a motorcycle to its raw, minimal essence and letting the pure
rebellion inherent in the lines of the machine come screaming through. This
is the essential attitude. It doesnt require much explanation. On the
Harley-Davidson Street motorcycle, one look says it all.
Blacked out engine and covers. Black pullback handlebars. Black fork gaiters and lowers. The first all-black exhaust on a Harley® motorcycle since our original Café Racer motorcycle was roaming the streets in the 70s. Youve also got a café style speed screen. A 17 inch front wheel. And an aggressive slash on the tail section. This isnt something common rolling down the boulevard every day of the week. This is the new Harley-Davidson Street motorcycle. This is Dark Custom attitude like nothing the worlds ever seen before.
