    I think the Street is going to sell very well. Youngsters, women…

    Be the scourge of your neighborhood with that 45 horsepower engine . . .

    If it gets more young people on MotorCycles more power to it.

    And if you get really old and still want to ride, will it be on a 3-400kg two wheeled tank…no

    I want to ride till I die and I would have no problems riding one when or If I get frail.

    In reality……

    Most of today’s “road worriers” are barely qualified to handle 45 HP……. :-)

    We shall see, but I think the Street will not be a big hit. The 500cc trainer will be great for dealers’ Riding Academy programs but I do not see a big retail market for the bikes.

    When one thinks about it…most of us started out on much smaller bikes then we ride today. This was a great move by the Motor Company to bring younger riders and ladies into the sport.

    Mike , reality is that actual HP for a 74 , prior to EVOs was not much more than 45.

    Man, that was a wise move from the MoCo when they rolled those Street models into production… I womnder what in the world is Polaris waiting for to make smaller displacement bikes… like an Indian Scout with an 800cc :)

    Agree with Reyn Mansson & hark.
    It is a smart move by H-D to build brand loyalty with a bike, in a way the Sportsters never could.
    To REALLY challenge the metrics for women, older riders & the smaller of stature
    Not to mention a foothold in the Asian market where H-D’s are WAYY more expensive.
    So when New / beginning rider ask me what they should start with ?
    if they say they just have to have an H-D, I feel a lot more comfortable
    steering them away from a “Shadow” to a “Street”.
    And, yeah, I’d like to see that 800 cc Scout & I hope it come to pass
    (In Sturgis this year)

    Maybe Indian can work out a deal to re-badge/market the Buell Blast as the Indian Papoose ;) (Loved the Blast, it and the Suzuki Savage were the best entry-level bikes out there)

    Stepping stone for one learning to be a faux bad ass }: or one wanting to ride many of the new naked bikes [ below 900 CC ] that are exciting to ride.

    I could see riding one… but for less than a $1000 more than the 750′s base price you can buy an Iron 883.
