Is the American version of the H-D Street not made locally in the States? I know that the European and Asian markets are all supplied from the plant in India. Sad to read that you have bought a bad build, as since 2015 I have only had happy times. Yes the fuel pump was an issue and the brakes are not the best, but I still find it to be the Urban Warrior that it was advertised as.
The USA Street Models are now made in York, PA. While the very first models suffered from a few quality issues (e.g., brakes, wiring, headset bearings) the issues were quickly addressed. Later models have very good fit and finish and are on par with the two 600/650 metric bikes in my garage. I have only read of two engine failures - One was due to massive abuse and the other was due to lack of oil. On the other hand I have read of many riders putting lots of miles on these bikes with no issues at all.
My 2017 XG750A Street Rod has very good fit and finish and is on par with any bike at the same price. I have read of Yamaha FZ/MT bikes suffering from rust issues so these may be even better. While paint is not on par with HD's bigger bikes the Street Models are just fine.
The only complaint I have is that these bikes are a bit heavy and don't have a lot of HD accessories...
