US bike maker Harley-Davidson continues to thrill bike lovers in India with the much anticipated launch of its new motorcycle, the 2017 Harley-Davidson Street Rod.
The motorbike maker has already updated the technical specifications of the bike on its official website. So far, the company has been close guarded on the on the pricing, but the new Street Rod, based on the Harley-Davidson Street 750, is expected to be priced around Rs 5.5 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
The Street Rod offers a more modern and slightly different aesthetic approach. The Street 750, which contributes bulk of Harley-Davidson's India sales, would look for its succescor to be a a hot seller, contributing to sales volumes for H-D India as well.
Harley-Davidson had designed the bike on the 'urban landscape' pattern, and draws inspiration from the now discontinued XR1200X with a new headlight cowl, split seat and rear cowl. Also played up on the design list are the drag-style handlebars with bar-end mirrors.
The 13.1 litre teardrop fuel tank is a signature Harley-Davidson trademark. The exhaust system gets an upgrade with shorter and wider pipes for a more roaring sound.
