A single overhead cam, four valves per head and a smooth-shifting 6-speed transmission all translate to provide an instant response on the throttle to move quickly from stop to go. Café-style speed screen, black front fork gaiters, all-black exhaust system and aggressive slash on the tail section deliver on Harley-Davidson’s signature Dark Custom attitude.

The Street™ 750 motorcycle retailed in India will also come fitted with premium Zapper tires from MRF designed for Harley-Davidson.
