Harley fans are usually die-hards, but there hasn't been a lightweight Harley in a long time. I think this will bring in a lot of new customers. So I'm just wondering if you guys are already Harley fans and owners, or if the Harley Davidson Street 500 or 750 will be your first purchase of a Harley?

It would be the first for me. Always liked Harleys, but never wanted the chopper style or touring bikes. These smaller ones are more my style.

I've owned Sportsters, Pans, and Evo's over the years. Currently a Dyna. All good bikes. I'm more interested in where Harley goes with these new tech bikes and what individuals and builders do with them than I am in owning one at the moment. But down the road.....who knows. I love anything on two wheels, especially new things.

It will be my first. I had a chance to ride my friends Road King, which is an amazing bike, it's just not what im looking for right now. The street 750 seems ideal.

I own a 2013 Limited but may get one of these so my wife and I have something to ride solo around town with. I think it's good move for HD. Solves some heat issues sitting in traffic.

I am wondering what the exhaust will sound like. Harleys are known for their loud rumble and I would guess that the Street 500 and 750 will also be loud as you cruise around town. A video of the exhaust note will be fun to hear.

near the end of this video you can hear either the 750 or 500, not sure which one, but it's something for now:

This will be my first bike. I will be using it for commuting and weekend relaxation. I've been going back and forth between beginner sport bikes or the iron 883. These new bikes look to be the best of both worlds.

I'm glad to hear the Street 500/750 in the video. One of the things I am most curious about is how these bikes will sound. Harleys have such an iconic sound, I was curious how a light weight bike would sound from the company.

I will be for me if I end up buying one. I've only ridden one Harley in my life, and I believe it was so long ago it was still AMF. Didn't care for it at all, it took two men and a boy to pull the clutch lever back for one thing. It was a brand new one at that.

first time I've taken a look at Harley.

The styling and price pull me in

I have always been interested in Harleys but never thought about actually buying one until now.

Harley fan for a long time, but it will actually be my first road bike.

Had trail bikes when I was a teenager, long time between rides for me.

If I bought one, which I may, after looking at one and test riding it, it would be my third HD.

I would buy it for zipping around town mostly. And also, the wife could ride, as my Heritage Softail Classic, is a handful for her.

My all time favorite Sporty is the XLCR, which this bike closely emulates.
I would build it as close as possible in appearance.

I ride a Roadstar but have been thinking about a lighter more nimble machine for commuting. The 750 looks like the one and will be my first Harley.

For the people who already have a Harley, why do you want a second that is less powered? Are you just an enthusiast?
