LEAKED: Harley Davidson Street 500 and Street 750 Power Figures

While the Harley Davidson Street 500 and Street 750 were on display at the India Bike Week, some sneaky motorcycle fan found out what the power figures are for the bikes. Stickers on the bikes placed the power figures at 33.5 hp and 46.9 hp respectively.

These numbers are pretty modest really. On a naked bike these numbers would be more impressive, but with how heavy a Harley is, I am not expecting that much horsepower to be anything too exciting.

Torque numbers come in at 50 Nm and 60 Nm respectively. That also isn't anything to stop you in your tracks.

The Street 500 and Street 750 are supposedly tuned to get the most possible out of their engines, but ultimately we will have to wait for a test drive in order to figure it out for sure.

the Streets are naked bikes LOL

36.8 lb-ft/44.2 lb-ft is certainly enough to kill you, for bikes like these its more about power delivery than it is pure numbers. If its long and linear with plenty of room in OD these will be more than comfortable mid range cruisers.

Probably easier to outline them

Harley Davidson Street 500
33.5 horsepower and 36.8 lb-ft of torque


Harley Davidson Street 750
46.9 horsepower and 44.2 lb-ft of torque

Lots of critics mentioning the numbers are a bit low.

Lets hope the lightweight factor will still allow this thing to be zippy.

I think that these numbers don't mean much on their own. It doesn't necessarily indicate what it will be like to ride each one. Weight will be a huge factor. Hopefully the Harley Davidson Street bikes are kept light to keep them fun to ride.

Next up we need to see charts to show us what the horsepower and torque curve for both are like, that will be what matters

Here is a DYNO comparison between the Iron 883 and some competitors to it.


So the 750 is not poor. The Iron 883 makes 48 to the wheels.. Granted the Street 750 probably does 40 to the wheels.

I know I'm the "odd" man here but, it's all about perspective. The 500's horsepower is more than double the horsepower of the Rebel I have now. It is rated at around 16 hp at the crank, around 12 at the rear wheel. The Rebel will cruise at 60-70 mph all day long without a struggle. I guess it all comes down to one's riding style. Me, I'm happy cruising at 60-65 mph but then I'm old...

Absolutely.

It all comes down to what your needs are and what you are use to

People online like to compare the the competition that is all.

thats a good way to look at it.
people also need to get on these and ride them to know if it's really enough and if it's really for them.
