Harley-Davidson has already announced prices of the 2020 Street series of motorcycles. Both the Harley-Davidson Street 750, and the Harley-Davidson Street Rod will be available in a choice of three colours. Recently, Harley-Davidson also announced that it will be offering its new BS6 models of the Street series for sale through Canteen Store Departments (CSD) for the armed forces personnel, ex-servicemen, as well as their dependents across the country. With a lockdown in Harley-Davidson's US manufacturing facilities, launch of the BS6 CBU models are likely to be delayed.
