Harley-Davidson Nepal is all set to launch the Street Rod 750 and the Street 750 in Nepal for a price of Rs.27,00,000 and Rs. 23,00,000 respectively. The official launch is scheduled for this month, but interested buyers can go and check out the bikes in their showroom.
Harley Davidson Street 750
The Street 750 is the most affordable motorcycle in Harley’s line-up and is also the stepping stone into the Harley Owners Group. It is part of the Dark Custom motorcycle range and has been specifically made for first time Harley-Davidson owners. It gets traditional cruiser design cues like a sweptback handlebar, mid-mounted instrumentation and a round headlamp with bikini fairing. Except for the rear shocks and the front forks, which are garnished in chrome, the entire motorcycle gets a matte black theme.
With a seat height of just 710mm, it is easily accessible for most average height riders in Nepal. The Street 750 is powered by a liquid-cooled V-twin engine which the company calls the ‘Revolution X’. The engine delivers 47bhp and 59Nm of torque and is mated to a six-speed transmission with belt drive. Braking has always been the Street 750’s Achilles heel, though this has been mitigated with a new rear brake setup and ABS. It also gets the company’s proprietary smart security system and a proximity key-fob.

Harley Davidson Street Rod 750
The Street Rod is the Street 750’s evil twin: it’s got more power from a re-worked engine, and better braking from twin discs upfront. Not only this, it looks significantly different, and the chassis has also been reworked to change it from a lazy cruiser to a street bike with sporty intent – the seating is more like a street bike than a cruiser, the suspension travel is higher, the cornering clearance is more and even the engine revs about 1000rpm higher to 9000 rpm now.
The compression ratio has been bumped from 11.0:1 to 12.0:1. In this guise, the engine delivers 70bhp and 62Nm of torque, up from 47bhp and 59Nm in the Street 750. The Street Rod gets a 43mm inverted front fork setup, tuned to offer a stiff ride. The Street Rod gets dual 300mm discs upfront and a single 300mm disc in the rear.
