Harley-Davidson's most affordable bike in India, the Street 750, is all set to get anti-lock brake system (ABS) as part of the 2017 model year update. The updated model has been listed in the company website and emerging reports say that the launch of the motorcycle has been scheduled in November.
Harley-Davidson had launched the Street 750 India at Auto Expo 2014 for an impressive price of Rs. 4.10 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The motorcycle has received positive response, but was criticised for not incorporating ABS. Harley-Davidson is addressing this issue with the update.
Apart from ABS, the 2017 Street 750 will also get new colour options. The motorcycle will not get any tweaks in design as well as powertrain. The Street 750 comes powered by a 749cc, liquid-cooled, V-twin engine that comes mated to a six-speed gearbox. It can churn out 58bhp of power and 59Nm of peak torque.
It measures 2215mm in length and has a wheelbase of 1520mm with 145mm ground clearance. Currently, Harley-Davidson Street 750, one of the bestselling models of the company in India, is priced at Rs. 4.58 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
Earlier this year, Harley-Davidson India had updated three of its motorcycles — Iron 883, Forty-Eight and Street 750 — with Dark Custom. The Dark Custom updates include an all-new front suspension and an adjustable rear suspension, lighter wheels. The Iron 883 also got improved seating, while Street 750 received better front and rear braking system. The Forty-Eight was updated with 49mm front forks, adjustable rear suspension and new seats.
