Harley Davidson Street 750 & Street Rod Available At Army Canteens In India

Harley-Davidson India has announced that the Street 750 and Street Rod motorcycle will be retailed at special prices through Canteen Store Departments (CSD) for armed forces personnel across the country.

Harley-Davidson has taken initiatives in the past for the armed forces in the country. With this initiative, the company aims to help the servicemen realize their dream of owning a Harley Davidson motorcycle.

The company has also started a new special Harley Owners Group (H.O.G) dedicated to the defence officers, called the ‘Armed Forces H.O.G. Chapter’. Ever since 2017, both serving and veteran members from all departments of the armed forces are members of this Chapter.

Harley is also offering unique assistance to the Armed Forces H.O.G Chapter by providing them with free and safe custody of motorcycles. The particular service can be availed at selective Harley-Davidson dealerships across the country. The move to include both the Street 750 and the Street rod motorcycles to the CSD inventory helps the association further.

Sajeev Rajasekharan, Managing Director, Asia Emerging Markets and India, Harley-Davidson, said, “Harley-Davidson shares a long-term alliance with the armed forces across the globe. With both Street motorcycles being included in the inventory at CSD in India, we look forward to providing more access to members of the armed forces and seeing more members of the forces fulfil their desire to own a Harley-Davidson motorcycle.”

The Harley Davidson Street 750 is powered by a BS6 compliant 749 cc, V-Twin, liquid-cooled engine producing a peak torque of 60Nm at 3,750rpm, and comes paired to a six-speed gearbox. The suspension duties are handled by telescopic forks at the front and a twin shock unit at the rear. The braking performance of the motorcycle is through disc brakes at both ends supported by a dual-channel ABS.

The Harley Davidson Street Rod features most components borrowed from the Street 750. This includes the engine, brakes, and lights; among others. However, the Street Rod features an improved suspension setup with USD forks at the front and a gas-charged rear suspension.
