I have never owned a Harley before, so the Street 750 is my first. It may be my first Harley, but it is number 11 in a line of bikes I have owned. Previous bikes I have had range from super quick two-stroke twins, lazy cruisers, adventure on/off road bikes and a sports bikes some chain driven, some shaft driven. Makes ranged from BMW, Suzuki, Yamaha and Kawasaki.
My bucket list still had an unchecked box. Own a Harley.
The launch of the Street caught my attention. Here was a Harley, but Harley by badge only. It was so different from the other bikes in the Harley range (discounting the V-Rod as it was physically too big for me) that I took it on a test ride. I was sold after the first mile. Here I will agree with DDK "seemed to have the best handling, best engine, and good low center of gravity compared to others in the same class".
Would I buy another Harley? Definitely not an old fashioned one, but I may consider a successor to the Street in a few years time. For now I will enjoy my Street, as it suits my riding style and will do so for a few more years. I have not had the first service yet, so I may change my mind when I get the bill!!
