Harley is pushing the Street 500 and 750 as excellent for Indian gridlock. Which leads me to wonder about filtering on the Streets, you think its sleek enough?

It doesn't look particularly wide. I think you'll be surprised at how small the HD street is for a harley when you see it in person.

I'm not worried about filtering or lane splitting. Its illegal here in Canada.

It isn't as slim as a scooter or a 100cc motorcycle..

But for its class I think it is rather slim.


Small photo as I couldn't find a larger one but that guy is relatively small and the Street seems slim there.

Another example but from a side angle


It isn't very wide.

The handlebars on my Sporty are only 28" wide. I can't believe the Street would be any narrower because mirror visibility is not that good at 28" wide.

I filter (we call it splitting lanes ) on a Harley Street Rod through Southern California freeway traffic with no problems. Same with a fully faired BMW K bike. I have filtered lots of European traffic on the Beemer. The Street ought to be very easy to slide through traffic with.

No. Mine are a couple of very early 49 state K100RSs, one stock and perfect, the other a 293K mile Frankenbike that'll hold it's own with any modern sport tourer.

I have ridden a K1200S. Absolutely loved the bike, especially the Hossack front suspension, but the degree of difficulty of some routine maintenance caused me to shop elsewhere. I ended up buying a Harley Street Rod and do not regret that choice for a second. A finely balanced motorcycle that was invisible to the riders who would most appreciate it's qualities.

The HD Street doesn't look particularly wide. I am sure it will be able to fit through the middle of lanes if you want it to. I don't think Indians would be very happy if it were too big to do lane splitting. I think that is part of the reason why so many people want motorcycles in India.
