Due to unsold inventory and rising competition, the baby Harley Davidson Street 750 is available at a competitive discount price in India
The mid-capacity motorcycles from 500-800 cc are gaining a lot of popularity in India. Until a few years ago, only limited mid-capacity products were available for the buyers. While in today’s time brands like Royal Enfield have entered the mid-cap market with the launch of the 650 Twins, it was actually Harley Davidson that ignited the spark for the mid-capacity bikes.
While the growing competition has subdued the sales of Harley Davidson Street 750 cruiser, the American brand is offering the India-made bike at a hefty discount of Rs 1 Lakh on the ex showroom price. Apart from the growing competition, the slump in the auto industry is also a reason for such massive discounts.
The discount is currently being offered by Capital Harley Davidson, a dealer of the brand in New Delhi. We are not sure if any other dealer is offering such heavy discounts, but we won’t be surprised if more dealers offer the same soon. While the Street 750 is priced at Rs. 5.33 Lakh, after discount, the price of the Harley Davidson Street 750 starts from Rs. 4.33 Lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
The Harley Davidson Street 750 is powered by a 750cc liquid cooled V-Twin engine that produces 47 bhp of power and 59 Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a 5-speed gearbox and weighs 223 kg. A more powerful Harley Davidson Street Rod with 70 bhp output is priced about Rs 1 lakh more than the Street 750 and is not available on discount.
The Harley Davidson Street 750 is the entry-level motorcycle made in India at the company’s Bawal, Haryana. The bike competes against the newly launched Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650 priced at Rs 2.50 lakh and Rs 2.65 lakh respectively (ex-showroom). Both the motorcycles use a 648 cc, parallel twin, fuel injected engine with air-oil cooling and it produces 47 bhp and 52 Nm of torque.
