The 2017 Harley-Davidson Street Rod has been launched in the country at this year’s Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS). The bike is priced at Rp. 395 million.
The Harley Street Rod employs a 749 cc V-Twin High Output Revolution X powerplant with liquid-cooling. The engine punches out 65 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. A six-speed transmission is mated to the engine and the power is transferred via a belt drive.
The bike features 43 mm inverted forks at the front and twin gas-charged piggy-back shock absorbers at the rear. For anchorage, the bike employs dual discs at the front and a single disc at the rear. Dual-channel ABS is standard. The bike rides on 7-split open spoke cast aluminium alloy wheels. A 120-section front and a 160-section rear tyres wrap the alloys.
Other notable features include drag-style handlebars with bar-end mirrors, black engine with highlighted fins and mid-foot controls. The tail light and indicators are LED units. The claimed fuel efficiency stands at 23.2 kmpl and the fuel tank can hold 13.1 litres of juice. The bike tips the scales at 238 kg with all the fluids topped up and in running condition.
