Captain America Now Rides A Street 750 Harley Davidson.

Street750MarvelVia sponsorship of the X Games Aspen, Harley-Davidson just showcased a pair of ice-racing Street 750 around a frozen lake doing upwards of 100 mph. It’s all part of a campaign to demonstrate that The Street is an entry bike for the youngsters looking for adventure but who can be intimidated by a big cc number bike. “I’d venture to say we have been in extreme sports since the early 1900s with flat-track racing. When you think about it, and what kids do today, this bike is perfectly poised. It’s all authentic to the brand” says Dino Bernacchi, head of marketing communications.

And to build more excitement for young riders, the Spring’s release of Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.” includes a harrowing chase scene where Captain America helps defend freedom aboard the new Harley-Davidson Street™ 750 motorcycle. Captain America, since his first introduction in 1941, has always been associated with riding a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle,” says Bernacchi. Now, in Marvel’s ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’, he’ll ride a Harley® motorcycle built for the urban environment.”

    I’d be interested to hear opinions on how much the Street 750 (or evne the 500) will cut into sale of Sportsters in the US.

  2. 2 BobS Feb 6th, 2014 at 9:51 am

    My estimate is they will cut much further into import sales than Sportster sales. Remember, it has a Revolution engine which means it’s not a “real” Harley. Sportster buyers want a “real” Harley, import buyers already don’t care.

    Captain America looks like a monkey on a football. Not a good image.

    Love the Marvel movies; but I have to think there would be a lot of wind shear and pull back with that sheild on your back, heading down the highway at 80+ MPH…

    Am I the only one that recognises that this is a sportster made to look like the new bike. Just look which side the belts on. New bikes belt is on the left hand side, good old sportsters is on the right. Why say its the new bike when obviously they’re using the old sportster.

    Alan. Huh, no.

Why say its the new bike when obviously they’re using the old sportster. its got no rad, look at the primary drive side its a SPORTSTER……………………….

    Alan, where do you get your info? The new 750 and 500 Street are ALL NEW bikes (they will be designated as XG500 and XG750). New frames. New suspension and wheels. New motors, (based on the V-rod motor, but few if any interchangeable parts. It’s called a Revolution X because it’s not the same as a Revolution V-rod motor), yes it does have a radiator, it’s a liquid cooled motor for Christ sakes. It is not a f’n Sportster. There aren’t any Sportster parts on this bike. The belt drive has noth’n to do with noth’n. Engineers can put the final drive on either the left or right. The above bike might have been modified for the movie, but it looks like a stock Street XG750 to me. It would be nice to know what you’re talking about before you write a comment. This site should not be used for spreading misinformation.

    JUST look at the bike above its a SPORTSTER, not the new bike, the belts on the right, the NEW bikes on the LEFT,………………..

    If you look on Harley’s website there are some videos of the 750 and 500 and the side of the bike shown here looks nothing like the same side of the 750 or 500, it indeed looks like this is a dressed up Sporty…

  11. 11 Slow Ride Feb 6th, 2014 at 1:21 pm

    Alan, you’re right! My apologies. The above bike is not a Street 750. Maybe they didn’t have one ready for the movie? I see what you’re saying. The Street 500 and 750 have left side drives.

  12. 12 Manxman Feb 6th, 2014 at 1:24 pm

    Alan is right – the bike in the picture is a Sportster – check out the left-side engine case covers and the left hand side cover not to mention the front cylinder, the swing arm and the shocks – all late model rubber-mount Sportster. Maybe the picture is an older studio picture and they don’t have the latest pics of Cpt America on the new 750. So Alan isn’t crazy or trying to spread misinformation – he just pointed out that the bike in the picture is a Sporty not one of the new bikes.

  13. 13 Jerome Solberg Feb 6th, 2014 at 1:24 pm

    Alan is right. All the images of the Street 750 that have been published have the rear brake disc on the right, the belt on the left. The Sportster has the brake disc on the left as does the bike in the picture. The above picture also has what is pretty clearly the Sporster clutch assembly on the left-hand-side, whereas the Street 750 has the clutch on the right hand side.

    its the bike in the trailers, and i can’t wait to see the film, it looks top $$$$$$$…….

  15. 15 James just another crazy Kiwi Feb 6th, 2014 at 4:50 pm

    Alan has sharp eyes.
    I have always wondered why HD have never made a sporty that looks like an XR
    It would not take much and it would look cool….to old people I guess.
    Like the old Fat Bobs which they have now uglied.
    The FB was the top seller in Aus last year, will be interesting to see how it goes this year.
    Heavy Duty magazine has an article on the FB in the latest issue.
    No offence Doc but it looks like an enlarged advert…maybe they are worried ?
    I can see why HD wants to lower the average age buying their product and they have counter acted that by tiding up the Dressers but what about the old loyal rider in the middle (me)

    It’s a very rapidly changing world it used to be the average biker resisted change unless it made good sense.Even then sometimes still resisted.
    Now you do not get a bloody choice

    Wow. So Captain America can make due with 50 HP? I hope the bad guy he is chasing is driving a Prius!

  17. 17 James just another crazy Kiwi Feb 6th, 2014 at 5:29 pm

    On a more positive note and bear in mind I am writing this behind the bleariness of a Red Wine and whiskey hangover.
    If you can get Heavy Duty Magazine in the States read the editorial by Boris Mihalovic.
    You will understand everything. He is as funny as a fart in a space suit.He also wrote a book called ”My Mother warned me about blokes like me”
    Absolutely Hilarious.

    the Captain looks embarrassed on that THING

  19. 19 Blackmax Feb 6th, 2014 at 9:24 pm

    C’mon this is Captain America, for goodness sake !!!
    Doesn’t Cap rate a Fat boy or a Street Bob ????
    Yes, Sportster or Street 750 it’s too damn small

  20. 20 Mike Feb 6th, 2014 at 10:43 pm

    I think the Captain is thinking to himself “I’m Capt. America for God’s sake. I wearing red white and blue spandex so why am I riding this slow piece of crap made with Chinese parts”

  21. 21 TONY DAVIDSON Feb 7th, 2014 at 7:57 am

    i seen the new 2015 indian scout, the 750 harley look like poop

  22. 22 Zipper Feb 7th, 2014 at 1:52 pm

    I thought it’s made in India? ..Z

  23. 23 Bruce Carter Feb 8th, 2014 at 5:35 am

    Yes, it is a modified sporty above, but as a Harley-Davidson employee I am sick of people saying that anything New coming from the Motor Company is not a “real” Harley !
    If its a new twin cooled touring, or a liquid cooled street, they are all all Harley-Davidson.
    And FYI, they are not slow.

  24. 24 Kerry Feb 8th, 2014 at 9:41 am

    All I would like to say is I live in A city and also work downtown, The 750 street is the Harley I have been waiting for. I set in rush hour traffic for 20-30 minutes one way. I have three bikes but the one I ride most is my liquid cooled bike do to the fact that I can set for 20 minutes in stop and go traffic without getting so hot that it feels like my leg is on fire or my bike will melt down. thank you Harley for making the Harley I’ve been wanting. ps. this spring I will be selling off two of my bikes so I can purchase what I think will be a fine Harley Davidson It will be my 3rd Harley and if it lives up to my expectations it will be the bike I ride most of the time.

  25. 25 alan sharp Feb 8th, 2014 at 11:07 am

    Hi Bruce y did they not use the new bike, y the modified sporty??? and yes the sporty is one of the best H/Ds ever…..and…..i have had 10……..sporty s so i shroud no …..

  26. 26 Brett Feb 10th, 2014 at 8:10 pm

    I have an FXST. When my wife had her Sporster 883L, it felt like a Scooter when I rode it. It was fun, but just seemed tiny…I dunno, maybe looked like Cap above LOL

    Hey Bruce Carter, what will HD do to compete with the New Indians & the power Torque & handling of them?

    I also have a Gilroy Indian from 2003, so I like both brands, though not entirely sold on the Polaris version of the bikes yet….so in a few years when I am looking for a new bike, if not much changes I will be trying to decide between a Street Glide & a Chieftain
