Where is your Harley Davidson HD Street 500 & 750 being made?

If your curious on where the 2014 Harley Davison HD street is being made, your on the same boat as every one on here

Well, I found the answer while snooping around and found out that the U.S model of both the Street 500 & 750 will be assembled in the Kansas City plant however they are not saying where it's being manufactured. Further investigation needed





As for the European and Indian HD Steet 500 & 750 model is actually being built in India.

Just an FYI

Ride Your Ride and Stay Alive.

If you Google "HD Street 750" you'll find a number of Indian publications discussing this new bike. If you read further, where they talk about production, you find something interesting. The production facility in India has not actualy been built yet!

Yes, there is a CKD facility (Complete KnockDown. ie assembling full kits from HDUSA) and it is to be expanded for actual production, but this is still in progress. Sub contrators are still being lined up. Initial Street prodution will probably be CKD as well.

So we know Street 500s are allready coming off the line in KC (Rider training versions), well, if there is no current factory to make them in India, then just where are these coming from? Or are folks still determined to ignore the obvious . . .

If they are being assembled in Kansas City, doesn't that just mean they have to source the parts from other places. The different parts could come from a whole bunch of different places worldwide. So while it is a bit of a mystery where all the parts are coming from, I don't think that Harley has a separate factory that only produces HD Street parts.

The Europeans don't seem to have a choice but to get charged almost double for the indian HD Street Model. Have you seen the break down of the prices? omg.

no I have not, whats the difference like? I would think that Indian cost of labor is much less than in America. Must be a pure margin play....
