The new Harley-Davidson Street Rod was born with the aim of offering the user three improved aspects regarding the Street 750: better maneuverability, improved performance and a more aggressive riding position. In addition, technical aspects such as propeller, geometry and part of cycle have been reviewed.

Chief Engineer of The Street Rod Harley Davidson
In the words of Mathew Weber, Chief Engineer of Harley-Davidson Street Rod: The new High Output Revolution X 750 engine of the Street Rod features more cross camshafts, high flow heads, greater compression and a red line located above. Be the center of attention. And we wanted a cycle that would play the part, with a precise and aggressive behavior, ideal in both urban traffic and curvy roads.
The new pilot position derived from the triangle that forms the seat, the footrests and the wide handlebar offers a great capacity for control of the motorcycle. And it is also so attractive (and very close to the first sketches that came out of the drawing board), it also motivates us in a especial way!”
We were all warned as kids about playing in the street. If you’re the sort who never listened to a word of it, we’ve got your motorcycle. The street is where the action is. The Harley-Davidson Street® series is a line of bikes built with one purpose in mind: to make the most of it. Every inch of the motorcycle has been thought through to meet the demands of navigating the urban landscape. The Street Rod™ features a new High-Output Revolution X™ engine that will rocket you from stoplight to redline at 9000 rpm. New 43mm inverted front forks and piggyback reservoir rear shocks let you carve through clogged streets with ease. You get a pure, stripped down, aggressive look. Settle into the scooped, racing-style seat and you’ll never blend in with the crowd. Source
The Street Rod Harley Davidson’s new High Output Revolution
So the Harley Davidson Street Rod’s new High Output Revolution X 750 is capable of developing 20% more power and 10% more torque. In figures, it is translated that the torque goes from 59 Nm to 4,000 laps to 65 Nm at the same rate.
It is also capable of reaching a thousand laps higher (up to 9,000 rpm), with the maximum power at 8,750 revolutions, although the best is between 4,000 and 5,000.
These changes in the engine have been achieved thanks to a larger airbox and new double injection bodies of 42 mm, new 4-valve cylinder heads and camshafts high crossover, and a large volume exhaust, all designed to increase the flow of gases and consequently the efficiency of the engine.
The compression ratio has been increased from 11.0: 1 to 12.0: 1.
The increased performance has also required a change in the geometry of the Harley-Davidson Street Rod. The steering angle has been closed from 32° to 27°, which is now faster than reactions. It also equips an inverted fork of 43 mm with aluminum plates.
We built the Harley-Davidson Street® series to be affordable machines for those who’ve gotta work to put gas in the tank and pay the meter maid when you find a place to park. But we did it our own way. That means we did it right. The beautifully formed teardrop fuel tank is Milwaukee steel, just like the fenders. Then we painstakingly finish it with one of our premium paintjobs, and top it with a new fast graphic and Harley-Davidson script. Listen to the sound coming from the new shorter and wider pipes on the Street Rod™ motorcycle. The note coming from this machine was tuned to perfection in our state-of-the-art sound facility to be instantly recognizable even with your eyes closed. It’s the small details that make a motorcycle look modern, sleek and tight and 100% pure Harley-Davidson® motorcycle. Source
On the back side, the swingarm is somewhat longer while the shock absorbers incorporate the separate oil tank, making its behavior much better.
The seat rises up to 765 mm in height with new forged shift and brake levers as well as longer aluminum footrests.
Along with the “drag” handlebar, the position is now more aggressive and also improves the maximum angle of inclination, from the previous 28.5° to 37.3° on the right and 40.2° on the left of the Street Rod.
Rear-view mirrors, located at the end of the handlebar, can be placed both at the top and bottom position as well as fold back without disturbing the hands. The Harley-Davidson Smart Security System is also part of the standard equipment.
Another important change is the tires, which now have a diameter of 17″ both front and rear (17″ and 15″respectively on Street 750).
The tires, Michelin Scorcher are in measures 120/70 R17V front and 160/60R17V rear while having double 300 mm brake disc on the front with two-piston and ABS pliers.
Maintaining theDark Custom philosophy
The forks and plates have a black finish while the dome goes to play with the body except for the central emblem that always remains in dark color. The rear fender is perforated for a lighter look.
The new Harley-Davidson Street Rod is available in three colors: Vivid Black, Charcoal Denim and Olive Gold. And the price starts at 8,650 euros for black and 8,850 euros for the other two variants.
