The similarities between the two are many. Both cost around Rs 7 lakhs, come with 'all-black' styling, and have liquid cooled twin cylinder engines that masquerade as air cooled units, you know, just to trick you into believing these have old world charm. These are also...Read more
The throttle responses are quick with smooth acceleration and all six gearshifts are easy and precise letting you enjoy the ride. Even at really high speeds of over 120 kmph, the engine doesn't make a fuss about being pushed, and allows to open up the throttle further. The street 750 may have been designed for the urban rider but harley's trademark cruising riding characteristics are still intact - thank god!
adding a few inches in ground clearance and suspension does mean that the street 750 takes in the large potholes and uneven speed breakers with confidence unlike other harleys which tend to be lower. The chassis keeps the ride steady all through and the handling both on the highway and in city traffic is impressive. The mrf front (100/60 r17) and rear tyres (140/75 r15) offered only for the indian market, have decent amount of grip but could use better traction especially at high speeds - as the braking isn't quite so precise. The street 750 has fantastic cornering abilities for a cruiser though, and lets you take those wide turns without slowing down and worrying about the foot pegs hitting the road.Unlike most harleys which rarely get out of the garage on weekdays, i do expect the street 750 to be on the road all though the week both in the city and on the open road.

styling could have been a tad better
