Harley Davidson Street 750

Harley Davidson Street 750 (HD750) is the cheapest offering in India. Thanks to the local manufacturing you get an international bike at a relatively affordable price. HD750 looks nothing like any Harley. Its compact looks, liquid cooling is unheard of on a Harley which has always been traditionalist. However, to keep up with times Harley did have to take this step.

 Design: 

  • HD 750 has a very compact design.
  • Thin tyres in front, round headlight, black cowl, radiator & the V-Twin give it a distinct look.
  • The bike comes in four colour options Blue, Red, Matte Black & Glossy Black.
  • Bike’s dimensions are 2225 mm x 815 mm x 709 mm (L x W x H)

Power & Performance:

Engine is also very tractable, making it easier to live with in cities. Give it some gas & it takes off in almost every gear. The engine is very easy to live with & both new riders as well as mature riders will like it.

Braking & Handling:

HD750 at 220Kg wet weight is not a light bike. However, it handles beautifully for a cruiser. There is never a problem while riding in the city or highways. City traffic is cut easily, highway miles are munched without breaking sweat. Show it a set of corners & this Harley doesn’t back off and you end up slowing down because of the scraping foot pegs & not because of the chassis giving in. Bike has telescopic forks in the front & Dual shock absorbers at the rear with a travel of 3.5inch & 5.5inch respectively. It rides on 100/80 17’ front & 140/75 15’ rear wheels.

  • The seating position on HD750 is low with typical cruiser like upright stance.
  • HD750 gets a single 300mm disc brake in front & a single disc at the rear.
  • The bike misses out on ABS.

What Insurance cover to opt for:

An American cruiser made in India is still a costly proposition. It is important to have an insurance cover which can get you through costly repairs in case of a crash as well as in the unfortunate case of theft.

  • A premium product like HD750 needs 0% depreciation insurance as it goes a long way in keeping the repair bills down in case of a fall.
  • It is a good idea to have an insurance that gives you complete cover from theft as a premium is a thief magnet.
  • Always prefer an insurance that gives you cashless benefit.
