Harley Davidson 750 is the cheapest Harley Davidson motorcycle on offer in India. It was firs launched back in 2014, at a staggering price of Rs 4.1 lakhs. This opened the door of Harley Davidson for a new segment of bikers.
Fast forward about 5 years, and the starting price of the same motorcycle has shot up to Rs 5.31 lakhs. But thanks to the recent launch of Royal Enfield 650 Twins, prices of these entry level HD motorcycles have been given a reality check.
Royal Enfield 650 Twins are direct rivals to the Harley Davidson Street 750 and the Street Rod. Where the Street 750 is priced from Rs 5.31 lakhs, the Royal Enfield 650 Twin is priced from just Rs 2.34 lakhs. On top of all that, the Royal Enfield motorcycle comes with more features, better tyres, better brakes, as compared to the Harley Davidson Street 750.
Of course, Harley Davidson would have thought that their sales would have not affected with the RE 650 launch. But that seems not to be the case. As HD dealers are selling the 750 series at a discount of Rs 1 lakhs. In addition, some are even offering free jackets, accessories.
Prices of the Harley Davidson Street 750 have been reduced from Rs 5.31 lakhs to Rs 4.5 lakhs while that of the Street Rod has been reduced from Rs 6.51 lakhs to Rs 5.5 lakhs. All prices are ex-showroom.
RE 650 is powered by a parallel Twin 650 cc engine which delivers 47 hp and 52 Nm. In comparison, HD Street 750 is powered by a 750 cc V Twin delivering 55 hp and 59 Nm.
