The Harley-Davidson Street 750 has been hitting the streets all over the U.S., as well as some foreign markets like India, China, and Southeast Asia since the 2014 model was introduced. In all of those countries, sales of motorcycles have really been soaring recently. After being test driven by the likes of AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Champions like Brad Baker, Mike Hacker, and both Jared Mees and Nichole Mees, as well as Cory Texter, the Harley-Davidson Street 750 seems to be a big hit. It is the company's first all-new model in 13 years, as well as their first lightweight bike since the Sprint in 1974.

The 2014 Harley-Davidson Street 750
At the 2013 EICMA motorcycle show held in Milan, Harley unveiled its very first new model in 13 long years. It was the 2014 Harley-Davidson Street 750. as well as the 2014 Harley-Davidson Street 500. It will begin sales in the U.S. in the Spring of 2014 with a price of $6,700 on the low end and $7,500 on the high end. It's a new Harley line that is not only liquid-cooled but seriously aimed at younger more urban buyers worldwide. Harley's calling it their path to the future. They also reported that the new 2014 Harley-Davidson Street 750 would be built in their plants in both Kansas City, where they build for the United States, Mexican, and Canadian markets, as well as India, where they build Harleys for the rest of the worldwide markets.
The 2014 Harley-Davidson Street 750 has a 60-degree V-twin liquid-cooled engine with chain-driven single overhead camshafts operating the four valves in each cylinder via the use of roller rockers that have screw adjusters. This new Harley powerplant has been dubbed the Revolution X. It is an all-new powerplant and has plain bearings, as well as a vertically split crankcase. The lineage of this modern design can be traced back to the V-Rod of 2001. According to Harley’s chief powertrain engineer, Jeff Coughlin, this particular design was chosen for the purpose of helping with the reduction of the wet-sump engine's height. This keeps both the center of gravity and the seat height low. This is an important consideration since the Harley-Davidson Street 750 could be the first motorcycle for a number of potential young customers.
