Default New Harley 750/500 LIQUID COOLED!!!

2013 EICMA: 2014 Harley-Davidson Street 750 and Street 500 — First Official Photos

I didn't expect this from Harley. The rumor mill has been talking about it for years and with the Buel Blast gone they needed a smaller bike for their Rider's Edge course. I just didn't expect Harley to release a liquid cooled entry level bike just as the typical riding season is wrapping up in the US.

Then just when you think you've seen it all, you find out that they're made in India AND revealed in Italy!!!

The Harley-Davidson Street 750 and Street 500 will be rolling into dealerships in select markets starting in 2014. More info is available at www.h-d.com/street.

I wonder if this is part of the reason that Willie G. retired last year

It will not be long now and all of them will be water cooled and made in India.

$20,000 and 3000 miles DO NOT make you a biker

Harley has already done 750 with the legendary XR.
Vrod for water cooled.
Nothing new from an innovation standpoint.

What is new is the full court press to market for and to an international customer base. I imagine it is fine with Milwaukee if they can sell to entry level Americans but the growing market is the overseas market that sees 500 cc' s as big displacement.

We just keep moving
It's been that way since long ago
Since the stone age chasing the great herds
We mostly go where we have to go

There is, ahem, a rather large market outside North America. There are even people in other parts of the world who ride Victory motorbikes and participate on this forum! Like me. Shock! We are a global community folks.

Not entirely true. Those for domestic distribution will be made in Kansas City.
