10 Things You Didn’t Know about the Harley Davidson Street 750

Harley-Davidson has all kinds of motorcycles in its lineup, ranging from entry-level bikes to some of the toughest motorcycles on the road. When it comes to its entry-level machines, there are only a couple of them that are currently in production. If you’re looking for something in that area, you need it to be manageable, both in regard to the way it handles and how much it costs. Enter the Harley-Davidson Street 750. This is probably the most entry-level machine that they’ve produced in a number of years. Priced at less than $8,500, it’s something that doesn’t send a lot of new riders into sticker shock. It also handles just as well on the street. If you want to know more about it, here are 10 more things about this unique entry level motorcycle from Harley-Davidson called the Street 750.

1. It’s intended to be an entry-level model

This one has probably already been addressed time and again, but in case you missed it, this is an entry-level model. A lot of the bikes that are produced by Harley-Davidson are designed to be tough and as such, they can be a little too much to handle for people that have never ridden a motorcycle on the street before. That’s one of the reasons that the company decided to make this motorcycle, but as you’ll read later on, it wasn’t the only reason.

2. It’s only been in production for a few years

This particular bike didn’t enter production until 2014. As a matter of fact, it was the summer of that year when the first Street 750 started rolling off the assembly line.

3. It got its start at the Kansas City plant

When these bikes first started being produced, they were produced at Harley-Davidson’s Kansas City plant, which was shut down in August of 2018.

4. Harley-Davidson designed the bike for very specific purpose

Remember reading that there was more than one reason the company decided to create this bike? It wasn’t just designed to be an entry-level motorcycle, but also to be a star on the flat track.

5. It has a low seat

Overall, Harley-Davidson is pretty famous for designing motorcycles with a low seat. You might even say it’s one of their trademarks. This one definitely produces in that area, as the seat is even lower than many of the other motorcycles produced by the company. That low seat actually makes the ride more comfortable and helps to even out the center of gravity on the bike, all of which make it easier to handle for people that don’t have a lot of experience.

6. The fuel tank is even lower

The fuel tank is designed on this bike so that it sets quite far underneath the seat, making it one of the lowest fuel tanks out of any model that’s ever been produced by Harley-Davidson, and probably lower than nearly any other brand of motorcycle as well. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but it can be shocking to some riders when they get on the bike and realize just how low it really is.

7. Overall, it’s a small bike

The seat height, coupled with the placement of the fuel tank, makes a lot of people feel like the bike is even smaller than it really is. It’s not designed to be a monster to begin with, but for some taller individuals, it can feel a little short-coupled at first.

8. It handles rough roads very well

That particular design is not by mistake, though. This bike is designed to handle modern-day roads without missing a beat, meaning that the bike itself can really take a beating without becoming too difficult to handle.

9. A lot of people would like to fix the mirrors

The mirrors have always been a problem on this bike, effectively creating a huge blind spot. Basically, you can either choose to see what’s directly behind you or about 75 to 80 degrees to your left or right, but you can’t have it both ways.

10. It’s not the best buy it for going long distances

The seat is designed to be soft and comfortable, which is not a bad thing but if you’re riding for more than just a few miles, it can actually start to feel like you don’t have any padding at all after you hit enough potholes.
