Will the Harley Street 500 or 750 be your first Harley?

Harley fans are usually die-hards, but there hasn't been a lightweight Harley in a long time. I think this will bring in a lot of new customers. So I'm just wondering if you guys are already Harley fans and owners, or if the Harley Davidson Street 500 or 750 will be your first purchase of a Harley?

It would be the first for me. Always liked Harleys, but never wanted the chopper style or touring bikes. These smaller ones are more my style.

I've owned Sportsters, Pans, and Evo's over the years. Currently a Dyna. All good bikes. I'm more interested in where Harley goes with these new tech bikes and what individuals and builders do with them than I am in owning one at the moment. But down the road.....who knows. I love anything on two wheels, especially new things.

It will be my first. I had a chance to ride my friends Road King, which is an amazing bike, it's just not what im looking for right now. The street 750 seems ideal.

I own a 2013 Limited but may get one of these so my wife and I have something to ride solo around town with. I think it's good move for HD. Solves some heat issues sitting in traffic.

I am wondering what the exhaust will sound like. Harleys are known for their loud rumble and I would guess that the Street 500 and 750 will also be loud as you cruise around town. A video of the exhaust note will be fun to hear.

near the end of this video you can hear either the 750 or 500, not sure which one, but it's something for now:

This will be my first bike. I will be using it for commuting and weekend relaxation. I've been going back and forth between beginner sport bikes or the iron 883. These new bikes look to be the best of both worlds.

I'm glad to hear the Street 500/750 in the video. One of the things I am most curious about is how these bikes will sound. Harleys have such an iconic sound, I was curious how a light weight bike would sound from the company.

I will be for me if I end up buying one. I've only ridden one Harley in my life, and I believe it was so long ago it was still AMF. Didn't care for it at all, it took two men and a boy to pull the clutch lever back for one thing. It was a brand new one at that.
