India’s 13-million-unit-per-year motorcycle market is comprised of mostly small-displacement models, so it sounds odd at first when manufacturers such as Harley-Davidson and Triumph enter the market with their larger-displacment models.

Harley-Davidson Street 750 Goes Flat Tracking At X Games
Harley-Davidson’s new Street 750 is set to make its flat track debut this weekend at X Games Austin. Reigning AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National champion Brad “the Bullet” Baker will lead the exhibition race. Highlights of the race will air on ESPN during the X Games competition coverage.
“The action-packed environment at X Games Austin fits perfectly with the attitude and identity of the new Street 750 motorcycle,” said Dino Bernacchi, Director U.S. Marketing, Harley-Davidson Motor Company. “And, since we gathered input from more than 3,000 customers, riders and dealers in more than 10 countries around the world to create the Street platform, it seems only fitting to let our fans decide if Flat Track racing should become an X Games medal event.”

“Long before events like X Games, Harley-Davidson motorcycle riders were pushing the limits of their motorcycles up hills, around wooden board tracks, across beaches, on ice and through the mud,” added Bernacchi. “The Street 750 is the perfect motorcycle to help introduce the next generation of passionate riders to the amazing experiences and thrills that await them on two wheels.”
The Street 750 is the first all-new motorcycle platform from Harley-Davidson in 13 years. The new model is set to arrive at Harley-Davidson dealerships within the next few weeks. MSRP for the Street 750 is $7,499 (Vivid Black) and $7,794 (Denim Black, Mysterious Red Sunglo), while the Street 500 MSRP starts at $6,799 (Vivid Black) and $7,094 (Denim Black, Mysterious Red Sunglo).
