Hi everyone and welcome to the new site!

We created Harley Davidson Street forums for the all new HD street models, the 500 and the 750.

Take a moment to introduce yourself and what you ride, if you are a new rider or a long time rider!

Welcome and glad to have you with us!

@pacer

Impressive list ;)

I am sure we all wouldn't mind some pictures :D

They are almost identical as you mentioned.

hey Ima 57 year old first time rider to be and getting ready to take my safety class. been looking for a standard seating position correctly sized bike to start on but a lot of the bikes have the foot pegs behind you and not directly beneath the knees. Thats what im looking for. and the street 750 has that . plus 95% of my riding will be in town commuter styled riding so the 750 sounds perfect to me . I found the forum while google searching the bike. 1 question though . Ive seen a lot of blurbs about the bike being ridden in india now but I havnt actually found any post ride reviews yet. Have you found any?

If there was just one manufacturing plant, and they were close to it then it would be possible but apparently they'll have one in the U.S. and one elsewhere. So if harley really loves us they'll give it to us first or same time as the rest of the world.

I think America might get it first just because America is Harleys natural habitat...

New Member & soon to be a new HD owner

Hi HD!
Thanks for the intro and a big shout! Im glad i bumped into the HD brotherhood page in here. Have done plenty of research, have scoured plenty of pages for reviews, videos, etc, etc... The Street 750 looks much different in person than in the photographs for sure. Impressive but lacks finish in some areas. Being a stock bike and a latest launch, im consoling myself to wait for a few days so that ppl start building after market stuff for it. Thats the reason ive not pushed myself to book the bike immediately. Ill wait for the first batch to roll out completely and hit the roads so that we gain maximum on the spot reviews. Monsoons nearing in mumbai therfore the street will take time to hit the streets.
Fingers crossed X:)

Welcome to the forum!

There is a decent amount of guys in here that have the 750 booked already so just wait for their feedback.

Hello from new member

My son and I are very excited about these new Street models, and are hoping to be acquiring a 500 in the near future. We are very glad Harley-Davidson has a new bike designed after a model we currently enjoy, but with a new engine design.Will post pictures of what we have planned when things proceed further. Thank you for offering this website/forum.

Hey Folks,

I'm a 60 year old who rides an old (2001) Buell Blast in Jersey. I decided to finally get "legal" and took the 3 day course the local Harley dealer offers which replaces the DMV road test. We rode the 500 Street for the class. I liked the bike. Now my Buell is acting up (been in the shop twice in a month), so I put a deposit down for the next 750 Street that hits the dealership.
