Question Upgrade From Street 750

Dear All,

I am ridding my street 750 from past 6 months & have ridden only 1000 KMS.

Now I am planning to upgrade from Street 750. The options that i am considering are,
1. Iron 883 - Just for sound
2. Forty-Eight - Looks fabulous, great sound, great power turns down on fuel tank capacity & riding position
3. Street Bob - Looks good, great sound, great power turns down on the ape hangers & a looks when compared to forty-eight.

Need your help in making the decision.

I wouldn't buy any vehicle just for sound, I'd be more concerned with the fit and feel of the bike. It is hard to comapre those three bikes as they are each different. Street bob has alot more power and is much bigger than the Sportsters. It ultimatley is your decision, as you will be the one riding it. Go to your local HD dealer and give each a test ride.

It also depends on your budget too,
Iron 883 starts at $8,400
Forty-Eight starts at $10,700
Street Bob starts at $13,500

If you ain't first, you're last.

Keep the Street 750 for reliability, and look for a decent to nice FXR. You'll save money and have two nice bikes, one to commute on, one to ride on the rallies.

Personally I don't like the sewing machine nor remus, V&H & Firebrand. They sound a little rookie. I'm not a lover of loud pipes but the sound should be a little rugged. All of the three are not available for test ride & not sure when they will. So its getting hard to decide.

I agree with you on the sound of the Street, I run mine without a muffler

Are you looking for a bike that YOU will want or one that everyone else in "the crowd" accepts?
Sportsters are a "girl's bike" didn't you know?
Personally, I think a nice Night Rod Special is the ticket, but VRods are not real Harleys. LOL... ah, the world of the Harley Davidson traditionalists.

Seriously, all of the bikes you listed are nice bikes. I really love the Sportsters, but I am not a fan of the peanut style tanks, I like the 4.5 gallon Custom tanks. Given that single fact, if the only choices are the three you listed, I would pick the Street Bob, and throw away the apes for a lower handlebars.

+1 for the Street Bob. Even though I do like the Spotsters. I just traded my XR1200x for a Night Rod. Mainly because I was in pain after 50 miles. But I did love the sound, the handling, and the power.
