Well they are back again! Just a few weeks after Harley Davidson unveiled their new Road King, they are back again to show you the new 2017 Harley Davidson Street Rod. It is yet another bike added to Harley Davidson's dark series lineup. The street originally made its debut in 2015 with both the 500 and 750cc versions. Creating a quick and nimble urban street fighter style motorcycle, Harley Davidson is now trying to capture another breed of rider. Most of these motorcycles are now being bought and modified to compete in dirt track racing. Harley Davidson now also released that the street is their official dirt track racing model as well.

The bike highlights it's new performance high output revolution X750 engine. New 17 inch wheels, A supercharged inspired air cleaner intake so this mid-level beast can breathe better, increased ground clearance with adding new performance rear coil over 4.6 inch shocks along with a new 27° rake fork. The change in fork rake allows the motorcycle to be just a bit more agile and quick in handling through city streets. In addition they have added the new dual 300 mm Front disc brakes and upgraded the tail lamp and turn signals to more efficient LED.

One of the main highlights would be the high output revolution X 750. This power plant produces 18% more power than the original standard revolution x engine. It has also increased torque by 8% from the original standard. The single overhead cam V twin engine now has a larger airbox and a new dual throat throttlebody. Changes also include revised four valve cylinder heads and highlift camshafts with compression ratios bumped from 11.0:1 to 12.0:1 and engine redline increased from 8,000rpm to 9,000rpm. And finally a higher volume muffler comes standard on the Street Rod.

Harley is not only trying to speak out to a new generation of riders, but continuing (in my opinion) to evolve in this crazy Motorcycle market. The Street line up has not only caught the attention of the beginner but also the hundreds of dirt track racers whom are buying these bikes and modifying them for the track. More so now that Harley now introduced their new dirt track racing team using their factory modified Street 750s. I have personally rode this bike because my wife owns one and it's a great little speedster. It makes a great bar Hopper or just an all-around get around town bike. It's gearing ratio differs from your standard Harley cruiser or Harley in general and feels more like a sport bike. Not many are convinced just yet, but I think the street 750 will still be around for years to come.

Thanks for reading.
