HARLEY-DAVIDSON OFFICIALLY UNVEILS STREET 500
Bringing an end to months of speculation, the historic US brand took the opportunity to announce that the motorcycle will be available in Australia and New Zealand by early 2015. An AU$9,995 / NZ$10,995 rideaway price has also been confirmed.
Morgan & Wacker and Gold Coast Harley are already taking orders; so best get in-store quick and put down a deposit to secure a Street 500 from the first shipment.
Lining up as part of Harley-Davidson’s Dark Custom™ range, the XG500 Harley-Davidson Street 500 features a new liquid-cooled Revolution X™ 500cc engine, housed in a specially designed chassis.
The 2,225mm-long model, which boasts an 13.1L fuel tank and comes with Michelin® Scorcher™ “11” front and rear tyres, also features a super-low seat height (709mm), innovative suspension and broad handlebar sweep.
“We’re hugely excited that we can finally unveil the Street in Australia,” commented Adam Wright, Director of Marketing for Harley-Davidson Australia and New Zealand. “This is a cutting-edge motorcycle which blends our distinctive styling pedigree with innovative technology whilst keeping our rich heritage at the core of it all. Boasting a premium but minimalist style that serves as a blank customisation canvas, the Street is the real steel deal.
“Anyone who jumps on this bike will understand as soon as they open the throttle: the Street was designed to bring fun, thrills and freedom to the road – whether for new riders or those returning to two wheels after a bit of time out,” continued Wright.
