Harley-Davidson recently revealed its new liquid-cooled bikes, the Street 500 and 750 at the EICMA motorcycle show, Milan. The Street bikes will be built in India, and are to make an appearance on the silver screen.
Movie buffs and motorcycle enthusiasts will see superhero Captain America astride a Street 750, as his choice of motorcycle in a new film slated for release, mid-2014. The Street 750 houses a 749cc, 60 degree V-twin, four-stroke engine estimated to generate maximum power of 53bhp.
The Street 750 aims to accelerate Harley-Davidson sales here, improving upon their already established position in India. The new bike will first be showcased here at the India Bike Week (IBW), Goa in January 2014, after which it will enter Indian showrooms in 2014, with a price tag of close to Rs 4.5 lakh.
