To be launched in markets around the globe, the Street 750 will be launched first, followed by the Street 500. Both bikes will be exported out of India.

Harley-Davidson is betting big on emerging markets and these new bikes are suited for shorter riders of Asia.

These bikes are targeted at young bikers and are thus easy to ride with good city manoeuvrability.

While the Street 500 is expected to cost Rs 4 lakh, the Street 750 will retail at around Rs 5 lakh (all price estimates ex-showroom).

The styling is very Harley-Davidson and unmistakably so. The company wants to compete with bikes which are being launched at this price point offering similar performance.
