What does it sound like?

Hi. can someone throw some light on the sound of the exaust for the HD Street 750? does it sound like the traditional Harley's or is it softer?

Yea this isn't the best clip to get an idea of the exhaust note. I wonder if any of our friends in India who already have the bike could post a video of the exhaust note. I think a lot of people are wondering if the Street still sounds like a true Harley.

Lol we are as clueless as all you people we have just made bookings for the bike ,we could only see display bike that's all & we couldn't make them start the bike as they out rightly said it's a display bike n we can't fire the engine
Come this April once we get our hands on test ride bikes we will post videos of exhaust note n also we will post updates about how the bike behaved overall...
Everybody have to wait till April 2nd week for that ...

Thanks for letting us know. We will be looking forward to listening to the exhaust note as much as you are then.

I'm sure there are after market exhaust options if the note isn't up to snuff though. It would be pretty disappointing if you don't get that harley growl from the Street though.

A Harley bike debut is not a true harley bike debut until they do a burnout!

I'm just hoping it doesnt have that potato sound the bandanaheads know and love To be honest I love the sound of some of those european V-Twins, silky smooth rumble. This may get me in trouble on an HD board but Ducati makes a vicious Twin

I find it ridiculous they wont fire the engine , I once visited the aston martin showroom in mumbai and they fired up the rapide even though it was clear as daylight that we were just 2 college kids and not actual customers. Refusing to start engine , refusing to hand out test ride , refusing to discuss performance - what are they hiding ?


Visiting the bengal hd showroom again tomorrow , last time I went there 2 days back , the manager was absent and the salesmen were clueless. It was obvious though they are relying on the brand name to sell the bike without handing out any real information. I'm strongly against this type of marketing and as such have put the order on hold , infact now looking at another visit to kawasaki to test ride the ninja 300 .

That's just dumb. Can you go to a nether dealer? The key here is not to be in a rush. I hate to see you not get the bike you really want.

I shopped five dealers and ended up driving 320 miles round trip before I bought my last bike in October of last year. A new 2013 FXDWG. I saved myself $3,250 and a hole lot of attitude. If a dealer cops a attitude to me, I walk! Let's face it if that is how they treat you before they have your money what's it going to be after they have it?
