New For 2017: The Harley Davidson Street Rod 750
We’ve Got The Harley Davidson Street Rod Specs, Price, & Availability
Updated August 20, 2018
Although it might bear a striking resemblance to the Street 750, the all-new Harley Davidson Street Rod has a few nice differences that set it apart from the former. If you’re looking for something with a classic look, an iconic V-twin engine, and enough grunt to get you around town, then this might be for you. It’s not quite a cruiser, but it’s not quite a middle weight naked street bike either – but it blurs the lines in between to make quite an attractive package.
The Harley Davidson Street Rod 750: The Specs
It’s based around the Street 750, but it comes with some crucial ergonomic differences. The proportions are different for one thing, and Street Rod has a more compact nature, a higher seat height and a revised rake angle. The seat height of the Street Rod 750 now stands at 765 mm, rather than the Street 750’s 710 mm. The ground clearance has risen up from 145 mm to 205 mm, and the rake has been trimmed down to 27 degrees from 32.
The wheelbase has also been modified to keep the Street Rod more naked/street rather than old school cruiser too. The wheelbase has been shaved down by 25 mm, making the whole bike a little more compact and easier to maneuver. To complement the revised proportions, Harley Davidson have also treated the Street Rod with USD style forks, twin disc brakes and a sharp and sporty aesthetic.
The engine has seen some improvements too. The new High Output Revolution-X V-twin has been given an increased compression ratio, and now sports a twin-port fuel injection system. These changes have increased the overall torque to 65 Nm up from the Street 750’s 6 Nm. In terms of horsepower, there is an increase but the details haven’t been specified.
Harley Davidson have added a few other nice changes, but they’re mainly aesthetic. For a start, the fuel tank is slightly different, the seat and tail unit are new, the Street Rod now comes with flat bars, and the front headlight comes equipped with a redesigned shroud. For European customers, ABS is standard, but if you want ABS in the USA, you’ll have to pay an extra $750 for the option.
And now the price: the Harley Davidson Street Rod 750 will retail for $8,699 in the USA and you’ll be able to choose from three distinct color schemes: Vivid Black, Olive Gold, or Charcoal Denim.
