Street 750 At X-Games: Vote #XGamesFlatTrack



Street-750-Flat-TrackerHarley-Davidson’s new Street family, spearheaded by the larger brother, the Street 750, has not only sparked a lot of buzz from fans, enthusiasts, and even from those outside the Harley market altogether, but is taking The Motor Company to new grounds even before being made available to the general public.

The Street 750 is currently being manned by Brad “the Bullet” Baker, AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National champion, to compete in ESPN’s X Games competitions, no doubt to show off its capability before hitting the market. The latest race featuring the 750 took place at ESPN’s X Games Aspen. That particular competition, where the 750’s rubber and shocks were tested in an arena of snow and ice, will now be showcased further to perform in a completely different environment — the dirt, set at X Games Austin, what Harley-Davidson has described as “an adrenaline-fueled Flat Track exhibition.”

In the same manner as how the US-based manufacturer originally approached this all-new platform (the first in 13 years) by reaching out to its fans, The Motor Company is, once more, asking for the general public to voice their opinion on whether Flat Track racing should become a future medal sport at X Games. Harley-Davidson encourages the public to take part by using #XGamesFlatTrack to participate officially.

As per Harley-Davidson, the manufacturer was influenced in regards to approaching what would inevitably become the new Street platform, after receiving input from 3,000-plus customers, riders, and dealers from all over the world, clocked in from over 10 countries.

The new Street 750 will make its debut at Harley-Davidson dealerships in the coming weeks around the world.

“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.
