We’ve known about these small-displacement Harley-Davidsons for a while now; the machines are supposed to be made in India, with water-cooled motors and scaled-down V-Rod looks. We’ve even seen photos of what was alleged to be a test version of the machine. Now, Motociclismo has a shot of what’s supposed to be a poster for EICMA, inviting viewers to check out the new Street 500 and Street 750 models.

  1. American, er, Indian Iron? Times are a-changin’! Sorry sir but your b/o parts are on the boat from Mumbai but we should have them by fall. lol

  2. Cannot see these models becoming available in North America, where the venerable 883 Sportster is often referred to as a “girl’s bike” … maybe some of the 500cc H.D.’s will make their way into their Rider Training Program as repalcement for the Blast, but doubt if they’ll see showroom space.

    1. “the venerable 883 Sportster is often referred to as a “girl’s bike” …”
      By the Hardley faithful. Whereas the entire product line is considered
      girlish and churlish by those that ride real bikes.

      Mumbai, or Milwaukee, they are shit.

  3. Well, latest news reports that the new Street 500/750s will indeed be available in Canada as 2015 models … veddy intellestink … will the Sportster line-up be reduced to 1200cc models only?
    BTW, just because some motorcyclists don’t like ‘em, that does not make a Sportster “shite” …

  4. Weather you ride a Harley, I’ve owned many, or not just get out there and ride, and no bike is ” girli”
