Milwaukee, WI — The Street Rod™ is joining the Harley-Davidson® Street™ family of motorcycles in 2017. The bike is an agile and powerful bike that is perfect for maneuvering through traffic. It features both excellent performance and Harley-Davidson’s Dark Custom™ styling.
The Street Rod will put the thrill in any urban commute, [because we’ve] paired the potent new High Output Revolution X 750 engine with a revised chassis and up-rated suspension components to make the Street Rod quick, light-handling and easy to ride.
The Street Rod will feature Harley’s High Output Revolution X 750 engine that offers 18% more horsepower and 8% more torque than their standard Revolution X 750 engine. The compression ratio has also been increased from 11.0:1 to 12:0:1, and the redline has also been bumped up to 9,000 rpm from 8,000 rpm. Liquid cooling will ensure rider comfort and performance are consistent while driving the city streets.
The motorcycle features a new seat shape, a drag-style handlebar and forged foot controls to provide comfortable seating for the rider. The Street Rod also offers ABS and a security system as factory installed options. The bike will be offered in Vivid Black, Charcoal Denim, and Olive Gold.
