Harley Davidson, the Street 750 cruiser was launched in India at the 2014 Auto Expo. Having been around for quite a while, the iconic two-wheeler manufacturer came up with the premium cruiser that is available at an affordable price. Moreover, the company has worked upon the loop holes making Street 750 a viable choice in the premium cruiser segment. The 2225mm long bike gets a fairly large seat placed at a height of 710mm (unladen). The ground clearance and wheelbase stand at 145mm and 1535mm respectively. Power comes in from a high displacing engine with a capacity of 749cc
Harley Davidson Touted as the most affordable bike; hence the price has not lowered the game for this cruiser. Up front it gets a rounded head lamp and wide handle bars. The visually appealing dual tone colour theme is overpowered by black and a contrast colour. The large seat is placed a tad low which offers comfortable riding position, moreover the pillion seat is positioned slightly upwards and the grab rail is missing, hence there is no support for the pillion at the back. The design on the whole is leaner yet muscular and the tear drop fuel tank looks neat. Centre placed instrument cluster features speedometer and other switches but it appears sub-standard unlike other Harleys. Rear gets LED tail lamps along with indicators.
