Harley News 2014 Harley Motorcycles – Liquid Cooled Revolution X Street 750 & Street 500

Harley-Davidson is continuing its monumental ride, which began with the introduction of Project RUSHMORE in August, by revealing two new Dark Custom™ motorcycles designed for young urban riders around the world.

The Harley-Davidson Street™ 750 and Street™ 500 motorcycles – the first all-new platform from Harley-Davidson in 13 years – are built for urban environments with all-new liquid-cooled Revolution X™ powertrains, nimble agility and the sound and look that lets everyone know they are genuine Harley-Davidson.

“These are the newest motorcycles to join our Dark Custom lineup, which helped make us the number-one selling brand to young adults in the U.S. for the past five years,” said Matt Levatich, President and Chief Operating Officer, Harley-Davidson Motor Company. “Both the Street 750 and Street 500 were designed with thousands of hours of input from young adults in cities around the world. This input guided both the attitude and capabilities of these motorcycles. They are proof that being customer-led continues to be a core driver of our product development process.”

Urban, Authentic Harley-Davidson
The Street 750 and Street 500 from Harley-Davidson are built for an urban environment. Each motorcycle features the new Revolution X engine, designed to match the demands of stop-and-go traffic with nimble agility, while delivering instant throttle response to escape city gridlock.

The Revolution X engine will be housed in a new, narrow and lean chassis built for agility, with a super-low seat height, new suspension and broad handlebar sweep that provides confidence and maneuverability when managing tight turns and fast moves. Both signature Dark Custom motorcycles feature a premium, minimalist style that serves as a blank canvas for riders to customize.

“These new bikes are leaner, yet still have a mean streak – they’re the real deal, made of real steel.” said Mark-Hans Richer, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, Harley-Davidson Motor Company. “They’re designed to handle the abuses of urban environments and provide authentic opportunities to customize.”

The Harley-Davidson Street 750 and Street 500 will be rolling into dealerships in select markets starting in 2014.

  1. Great bike Harley. Was the bike I was waiting for. Never thought I would buy a Harley but this bike has changed all that. Great bike to tool around with while still being in high style. Also, the bike is small enough for the wife to ride as she is a beginning rider and is intimidated by bigger bikes. She also is giddy about the prospects of joining the HD family.

    Can’t say enough. I think it will be a great seller. Alot of people out there like me. Finally a valid alternative to all the generic, mid-weight Japanese cruisers which are so boring and dull. Kudos Harley.

    Finally, now we see what the Motor Company has planned to corral the future of the two wheel market. I still have reservations about manufacturing Harleys in India; even though the MC will still make them here for our market. Some of the show pictures from other coverage show some interesting aftermarket applications to the stock 750/500. I wonder if one could apply like products to existing Sportsters. That brings to mind another question: Will Harley faze out the Sportster line and replace it with this pea-shooter? I sincerely hope not. But it seems plain that the days of the air-cooled 45 degree v-twin may be stunted or over. Future may see the Nova v-4 from H-D’s earlier development finally show up or other derivations from similar development. Those liquid-cooled engines are easier to configure for EPA standards. I do not know if many noticed that the 2013 twin cam lost a bit of torque compared to the 2012 twin cam that claimed 100 ft. lbs at the crank. The 2013 claims a little less. I am assuming that result is due to stricker EPA standards for 2013. The big question for the future of HD products is does this spell the demise of the 45 degree air cooled big twin?
