The new Harley-Davidson Street Rod is set to raise eyebrows, and reset expectations. The newest member of the Street family is built to thrive in the city and will provide an exhilarating experience beyond.
Drenched in Harley-Davidson Dark Custom styling, the new Street Rod oozes purpose and attitude. Powered by the all-new High Output Revolution X 750cc engine, the model is matched with sharper chassis geometry and an aggressive riding position.
To push the rider to new heights, The Street Rod also features a new seat shape, designed to hold the rider firmly in place, and sits 765mm higher than its learner-legal family member, the Street® 500, to enhance the rider’s view forward.
“The Street Rod’s new High Output Revolution X 750 has got hot cams, gas-flowed heads, more compression and a higher redline. It gets your attention. We wanted a chassis to match, sharp handling and aggressive, perfect for urban cut-and-thrust and canyon carving.
“It’s attitude and the relationship between seat position; rearset; footpegs and wide handlebars put the rider fully in control. The fact the Street Rod looks so good – and very close to our early sketches – gives us all a real charge too!” shared Mathew Weber, Harley-Davidson Chief Engineer.
The exclusive 17-inch front and rear Open Spoke Black Cast aluminium wheels and new Michelin Scorcher 21 radial tyres inject an athletic stance, while the new scoop-style air cleaner cover and sharper snap of the exhaust note draw attention to the engine’s strong design.
The new forged brake/gear levers plus aluminium rear-set footpegs that aid control and make it easier for more riders to get good ground reach when stationary. To suit more spirited riding lean angle is increased from 28.5° left and right to 37.3° right and 40.2° degrees left.
“The Street Rod is a perfect addition to the Street family. It is an exciting time for Harley-Davidson and our riders.” said Adam Wright, Director Marketing, Australia and New Zealand.
The Street Rod will be available in three colour options: Vivid Black, Charcoal Denim and Olive Gold.
Available in H-D dealerships across Australia and New Zealand starting from May 2017, the all-new Street Rod is priced at $12,995 rideaway in Australia and $13,995 rideaway in New Zealand.
