500 or 750?

For those of us in markets that will see both the Street 500 and the Street 750 being sold, which one are you planning on buying?

I am going to go for the 500. I don't think I need more power than that, plus it saves me some dough.

750 for sure.

I wonder which markets may only see one of the two models.

India is where only Street 750 is launched and no plans of making Street 500 available in current year.

If I could buy one, it would be the 750. Same curb weight and the power I would need as a highway commuter. The price difference and mpg difference will most likely not be all that significant, so to me, the 750 will be a better value for someone mostly traveling on state highways (not interstates) for the long run.

I cannot confirm but heard the price difference would be very less so any-day owing 750 will be more better option.

I don't need the extra power. I'll save some money and go with the 500. Can't wait for this bike to be released in NA. Should be fun!

Yes I agree, if power is not something your priority then definitely go for Street 500.

That will be a good portion of people, some just want a cool commuter. I think even women will gravitate to it more than the 750.

Has anyone even seen the HD street 500 yet? I was at a local motorcycle show this weekend and they only had the 750 out. Weird how they would market the higher displacement model first...
