A dealership in Thailand has produced what many have been clamoring for but what we are not likely to ever see: a Harley-Davidson adventure bike. The Stealth 750 ADV bike was designed by Richy Wilson, co-owner of Richco Harley-Davidson in Chiang Mai, Thailand, as part of a Harley-Davidson Street 750 build-off challenge.
The Kansas-raised Wilson hand-crafted the fairing, fuel tank fenders and swingarm from aluminum. The fairing is led by a small ADV-style beak below a grill that protects twin headlights. The fuel tank is larger and sits much higher than the Street’s stock tank, rising up just above the level of the triple-clamp.
For off-road riding capability, the Stealth 750 runs on a 21-inch wire-spoke wheel up front and an 18-incher at the back, both equipped with knobby Dunlop tires. Suspension is handled by a motocross fork and single rear shock from Öhlins. For touring duty, Wilson added a set of hard panniers and matching top-box.
Powering the Stealth is the Street’s 749cc liquid-cooled Revolution X V-Twin engine, which now churns out exhaust gases through a custom-made dual exhaust mounted under the tail.
The Stealth 750 is a one-off custom creation, so we are not any closer to seeing an official adventure bike from Harley-Davidson any time soon, but at least we can start to visualize what one could look like.
