Harley Davidson reveal new Street Rod


The Street Rod is a revised addition to Harley's smaller capacity line up that opened with the Street 750 back in 2014.

Using a new High Output Revolution 750cc engine, Harley claims the new bike ups horsepower by 18% with 8% more torque than the standard Revolution X750. That's via a larger airbox pushing into a new dual-throttle body, revised cylinder heads, new high-lift camshafts and a higher volume muffler.

It should be good for about 64bhp at the rear tire and about 47 lb-ft of torque. Peak power now arrives at 8750rpm and peak torque at 4000rpm. Nothing to scream home about, but for Harley fans, it's a welcome addition. The Street Rod, as the name suggests is designed with town riding in mind.

Front and rear 17in wheels accompanied by 43mm upside down forks at the front and dual shock absorbers with external reservoirs at the rear give it a little more lean angle. H-D claims 37.3 degrees to the right and 40.2 degrees to the left instead of 28.5 degrees either direction.

 

The seat height has also been raised to 765mm, compared to the 709mm of the Street 750, making it that little less cramped for taller riders. The Street Rod starts at £6745 for the Vivid Black colour scheme. It also comes in Charcoal Denim and Olive Gold.
