New Suspension and a broad handlebar sweep provide the confidence and maneuverability for managing tight turns and fast moves. It comes with a premium minimalist style that serves as a blank canvas for riders to customize their own sense of personal freedom.
In an Auto Talk Show,Harley-Davidson Director North America Consumer Events; Paul James said:
“Harley-Davidson is no stranger to action sports and we think flat-track racing is the original action sport. What we want to do is to get flat-track fans behind it so they can help decide if flat-track racing could become an official summer X Games medal sport in 2015.”
Bike like Street750 is going to play an important role for flat-track and would soon be perceived as a potential medals event for summer X Games.
