The Street Bob is the entry-level model in Harley-Davidson’s Softail range. It features a stripped-down bobber styling complete with ape-handlebars. Meanwhile, the chopped rear fender and blacked-out components lend the bike a raw appeal.
The bike gets an LED headlamp unit along with a digital instrument cluster mounted on the handlebar. You also get keyless ignition, and a USB charging port as options while ABS is offered as standard. The Street Bob sports a revised tubular frame although Harley-Davidson has retained the look of a traditional hardtail motorcycle. The manufacturer claims that the frame is lighter and more rigid to improve riding dynamics and ride quality.
This frame houses a 1745cc Milwaukee-Eight 107 engine, which delivers 144Nm of torque through a six-speed gearbox. It rides on new cartridge-type front forks and an adjustable rear monoshock. The Street Bob is available in five colours and its prices begin at Rs 11.99 lakhs.
