Harley-Davidson Street 750 Appears at India Bike Week 2014, gets priced

We now know what the Harley-Davidson Street 750 will cost in India. While on show at the India Bike Week 2014, Harley-Davidson announced that the Street 750 will be priced under 500,000 Indian rupees, which translates to $8,120 or 5,990.

The Street 500 should be available in India in 2015, but there is no info on when it will be coming to other foreign markets as of yet.

The Street 750 comes with wider and taller bars for a more comfortable riding position and a ground clearance which is 2" (5cm) bigger than any other Harley sold in India.

How does this compare to American pricing?

I think that the Street 750 is going to be sold for $7,500 in the US. SO it is a slight bit more expensive in India.

Just in case you are curious the Street 500 is going to go for $6,700 in the US.

It doesn't. You can't compare different market pricing.

Maybe Canadian and US pricing is comparable but not India and American

Especially since both of them are made in different countries.

What do you mean you can't compare them? He just did. The bike is more expensive in India than it is in the US. Like if you took your American money and flew over to India, exchanged, it and bought the HD Street 750 you would lose money. If someone from India did the opposite they would save money.

All this assumes you fly for free and can send it back to your home country for free :P

But comparing them doesnt do anything

it doesnt prove anything.

the american market street and the indian market street are manufactured in different countries, have different manufacturing costs. also sold in two countries with very different pricing strategies and currency values.

you can't convert the indian pricing to USD and compare that to USD. It proves nothing except that it cost more or less to buy there. But that doesnt even mean anything..

not like you are going to go to India and buy one or have someone from India come to north america to buy one and ship it back.

Thats a good point when it comes to anything that is overseas it hard to translate the prices. When both end release the prices I am sure there are headaches to wonder why they are so different, more or less its just doesn't work. However, with any number given you can just guess, thats all. Going to have to wait for it on paper.

Ride Your Ride and Stay Alive.

I read on on Auto Evolution that the Harley Davidson Street 750 was going for 4.1 lakh rupees, which converts to $6,570 USD. That is cheaper than what was posted on this thread before. Seems like this price is for sure though.

Thats crazy, just under $7k for a sweet looking HD is a killer price.
Hopefully where ever they cut back on wasn't on anything too important

In economics we speak of purchasing power parity, how many hours of work at a median wage is required in different economies/societies to earn enough money to buy the identical product in each economy/society being compared. It is probably true that the median Indian wage earner will have to work a darn sight more hours to afford a Street than his or her American counterpart. Compound that with the easy availability of loans in the US while the Indian, or any Asian, will likely pay cash for the same bike.

I live in a parallel universe but have a vacation home in reality.
