How are USA sales so far?

Anybody know approximately how many Streets there are out there riding the highways and city streets here in the States?
I have yet to see one besides my own, here in Florida.
From the Facebook groups it appears the vast majority of Street owners are either in India or some other country besides the USA.
While that's good news that it sells over there, I just wonder if it's flopping here in the States.
I love mine. Would sure like to see another out on the road.
Anyone have a clue about sales figures?
Thx
Em

Don't feel left out Emzdogz, I have only ever seen one (twice) in my city when the dealer says they have sold twelve (but not all in our city). The one I see is usually parked in the mix when I have been to a HOG meeting. This local dealer serves an area a little over 36,000 square miles, about the size of Portugal, so finding the sold Street bikes is like looking for a needle in a haystack.

No sales figures but I've been to Fort Pierce, FL and I saw one. I live down in Miami and i've seen one as well. This is all in 3 months.

You need to give it some time. Its Winter in some parts of the country. Not much Riding going on. They've only been out for a year. I've personally ridden with one other on Nov 1. Toys For Tots run in Philadelphia. Went with the Bucks County HOG. I live in NJ. Where I live there isn't a chapter. So I just "Tag along" when I can. I would wait until the Spring. My dealer sold every(Stock) 750 he had. He only has a 15 750 that was Custom Built. And with a price tag of about $16k. Its going to be awhile to sell.

My dealership seems to have a [glut] of larger bore bikes and there is thus a big effort to move [them]. Consequently the STREETS take somewhat of a "back seat" in their marketing efforts. Per this site I'm aware of a few STREETS in the Denver area but I've yet to see another one, out-and-about. Those who have seen mine, however, have expressed an interest and were completely unaware that this model existed. As Tucsonmax1 suggests "give it some time". In my opinion the STREETS are quite a good "bang-for-the-buck" especially since some of the problems with the 2015 models have been corrected in the 2016 offering.

The Street XG500/750 looks a lot like Harley's XLCR 1000 from 1977-79.
I think one other is in my area was a red bike with a windshield saw it at a gas station as I went by not totally sure didn't get a good look at it.

I've only seen 1 other for sure on the road, and possibly a 2nd, but we passed each other in opposite directions on the highway.

This bike does turn heads though, and causes quite a gathering when parked. I even get comments when I'm stopped at a traffic light!

I hate autocorrect. I always end up posting some thong I didn't Nintendo.

Once again the last event I was at (Lyme disease Aid bike run) the Harley dealer, there was only one Street 750 and that guy ( he’s on this forum too) was working at the outing not riding with the others. There had to be 250 bikes at that event but not one Street was in the bunch.

It seems like the Iron 883 Harley-Davidson is a better sell than the street and dealers know it.

I just read on Flipboard that sales in India for the Street 750 have slowed down even though it's more affordable, it has had no new updates to the bike. The SuperLow and the Fat Boy have been discontinued in India because of low sales.
