There's loads of cost cutting
So the big question is ,wether the build quality will be same for both indian n US market or there will loads of difference ????????????

I have one doubt for experienced riders ,in the above review there's one picture were the reviewer points out saying the front fender is shorter on the hind side ,so the dirt n gravel which may come off from front tyre may get into the big radiator in the way ,will this affect the radiator ,will it coz any damage ???
Can someone clear this doubt for me ...

Hopefully, even if Harley doesn't listen to us, maybe they will pay attention to the journalists and reviewers.

Thank you...
I paid attention to this when i was at the showroom and raised the question with the HD rep as well , obviously he said no reason to worry. Anyways I feel that small rocks/gravels can get lodged between the grill , whether they will damage it or not only time will tell since that depends a lot on the quality of plastic used. The outside plastic shroud is there to serve the purpose of a shield , cosmetic damage to it won't affect radiator performance.


BTW notice this guy mentions consistent problem with up-shifting ? that is a first as far as I have noticed . So far every review have been a carbon copy of each other and no one here who have taken the ride has noticed this either , might be a one-off ...

Good test ride and I found this wicked side by side shot of the red and black street, probably the best way to decide what color to get!

Response from Harley to my comments is very encouraging to say the least!

Comment on FaceBook to Harley India from my side:-

Nice bike if you rectify the brakes at least. I found the brakes on Street 750 poor in test ride as compared to Iron 883 and Royal Enfield Continental GT that comes with BREMBO brakes- the world best.

Reply from Harley side:-

Hi Puneet. We appreciate your concern and we assure you that we are constantly working on improving our products based on customer feedback. Thanks.

Here reply sounds good and encouraging rest God Knows!

I wouldn't get too excited about what a customer service flunky says. That is pretty much a canned statement. He isn't going to tell you "eff off, we build what we build", lol.

Plenty of motorcycles have similar situations regarding coolant and oil radiators in the path of road debris from the front tire. Look at the oil cooler of a V-Strom for example. Haven't heard any of their owners carping about damage to the oil cooler.
