New Harley-Davidson 750 Bike Stars in Flat Track Race Exhibition At X Games Austin

street1Street2After scorching the ice at ESPN’s X Games Aspen, the new Harley-Davidson Street™ 750 will kick up the dirt – and the action – at X Games Austin with an adrenaline-fueled Flat Track exhibition race just weeks before the new bikes begin to arrive at U.S. dealerships. Highlights of the race will air on ESPN during the X Games competition coverage. “The action-packed environment at X Games Austin fits perfectly with the attitude and identity of the new Street 750 motorcycle,” said Dino Bernacchi, Director U.S. Marketing, Harley-Davidson Motor Company. “And, since we gathered input from more than 3,000 customers, riders and dealers in more than 10 countries around the world to create the Street platform, it seems only fitting to let our fans decide if Flat Track racing should become an X Games medal event.”

Reigning AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National champion Brad “the Bullet” Baker lead the exhibition race on the Street 750 – the first all-new motorcycle platform from Harley-Davidson in 13 years. In the spirit of the customer-led product development approach that Harley-Davidson undertook to create the Street motorcycle, fans will be the ones to decide if Flat Track racing should become a future medal sport at X Games Austin using #XGamesFlatTrack to make their voices heard.

street3As fans watch the Street 750 motorcycle get dirty at X Games Austin, the new bikes will make their long-awaited debut at Harley-Davidson dealerships nationwide in the coming weeks.  MSRP for the Street 750 is $7,499 (Vivid Black) and $7,794 (Denim Black, Mysterious Red Sunglo), while the Street 500 MSRP starts at $6,799 (Vivid Black) and $7,094 (Denim Black, Mysterious Red Sunglo). The Harley-Davidson Street 750 and Street 500 feature the all-new liquid-cooled Revolution X™ engine housed in a narrow and lean chassis built for agility. New suspension and a broad handlebar sweep are conceived to provide the confidence and maneuverability you need when managing tight turns and fast moves – with a premium, minimalist style that serves as a blank canvas for riders to customize their own sense of personal freedom.

In addition to the motorcycles, Harley-Davidson will offer more than 100 genuine Harley-Davidson accessories to help customers make Street their own. You can visit your local Harley-Davidson dealership to test ride a Street 750 or 500 or visit Harley Dark Custom for more information and to sign up for a free Harley-Davidson Dark Custom sticker.

    It looks funny to see a Harley with a radiator. The way of the future, which probably pisses off some of the traditionalists.

    haha I could care less if it has a radiator dangling off it. In fact, I really don’t care if it’s made in sweatshop conditions, is only 10% American parts, or whatever.

    The problem I have is HD corporate claiming that the product is “American Made.” When in fact it’s made in sweatshop conditions and assembled by unskilled workers in KS in a warehouse. And I’m sure, like in the York PA facility, none of the equipment is bolted to the floor and can be swept up and shipped south or better yet offshore at a moments notice.

    THEN, as if I didn’t realize where my product comes from, thinking that I’m a doo-rag wearing, fat-assed beer drinking boob will then slap down $7500 like it’s pennies and go play the part of billy bad ass on weekend—all for that little bar and shield on the tank. It’s laughable, HD

    I don’t know what HD factory conditions are like in India, but I recall an NYT op-ed on the appalling working conditions of India sourced manhole covers NYC was purchasing.

    The workers CAST manhole covers on a dirt floor, no shoes, no sandals, no foot binding, NOTHING, and CAST in nothing but a LOINCLOTH. That may be their choice, however if they want boots? PPE? forget it. Corporate can’t afford to pay for it.

    Take Fender for instance (disregard the Squire brand). They manufacture the majority (I’m sure some parts have to be outsourced but to my knowledge none are) of the parts in the USA. Then they let the CONSUMER decide whether they want a guitar assembled in Mexico or the USA. If it’s made in Mexico, fine. It says “Made in Mexico” right on the headstock. Assembled in USA? Great, it’s the same size font, “Made in USA” right on the front of the headstock as well.

    All I’m saying is that I know where my product comes from, and if I don’t I’ll find out. Don’t sugar coat your product HD, the consumer knows better.

    You know, why couldn’t they come out with this version first with dual front discs? Upside down fork, check, actual rear suspension check. Im guessing this would cost more than the sportster

    The bikes that come down to the Antipodes are assembled in India and come directly here.
    Many Japanese products are made in China, Taiwan or many other eastern countries.
    Triumph get a number of products made off shore including India.
    Harleys were put together in Japan in the 30’s.
    Indian stuck their name on English MotorCycles and HD clone motors.
    These things are cyclical and who knows what the future holds.

    What is great is that under many countries rules the 500 can be used as a learner bike.
    And if some kid buys one with a bit of an attitude, it will soon be changed if he choses to run with the big dogs.
    I was 17 with a BSA and learned to respect my elders.
    There has never been ageism in Motorcycling let us hope it stays that way.

    Yes, radiators are a bit “off-putting” on a sportster…… 🙁
    But might be overlooked if ya got a cool set of XR cross-flow heads with the deal…. 🙂

    Jay Springsteen ….Scott Parker …..a radiator ? ,,,,,,,,these times r a changing …just don’t seem right…..

    Gee, I thought the V-Rod had a radiator!

  8. 8 Mack Jun 7th, 2014 at 9:51 am appears the article was about 750 flat trackers

    Here’s a sample of what a scooter & rider have to be able to make it as a flat track team…….. 🙂

    Following in the footsteps of the Sportster 750 from many years ago which is still found on flat tracks everywhere. Now, with the water-cooled Rev-X scaled down V-Rod motor and under 500 lbs, it’s making a try with this Indian made HD. Well why not? Everything is so globally made now it almost doesn’t matter. I confess to owning a non-American made car but do prefer my two-wheelers are made in the USA as much as possible. More of personal preference really.

    I hope this new HD offering does well on the track and sales are good for it world-wide. Hero, the largest maker of motorcycles in the world, made 6 million bikes last year. Most of them are small utilitarian bikes used for just about everything. Much of the world has no interest in the big bikes so popular here and places like OZ and NZ. We’ve all seen the pics of the whole family of 6, including the baby in a bucket or something hanging off the bike, as they go out together for the day on a little 250cc bike. A 500cc bike is considered very big in those places. Then again they don’t ride for fun. They ride to simply get where they are going or as a modern day pack mule.

    Who cares — it’s loud, fast and on dirt, sounds good to me!
