2014 Harley-Davidson Street 750 Wallpaper ImagesHarley-Davidson delivered a rumble of shock to many this past November at the EICMA (Milan Motorcycle Show.
Not only did The Motor Company unveil its two new entry-level motorcycles – the Street 750 and Street 500 – it also reported that the bikes would be released on American shores.Information was leaked about entry-level Harleys heading to India and China, but not in America. This changed at EICMA, and quickly got the entire industry talking.The Street 750 and 500, which will be manufactured at the Harley-Davidson plant in Kansas City, are built on an entirely-new platform – the “Revolution X.” This is the first new platform since Harley released the VRSC (V-Twin Racing Street Custom) lineup in 2001 that includes the V-Rod.The Street 750 is getting the most hype of the two; it features a liquid-cooled, 60-degree, four-valve-per cylinder 749cc engine with fuel injection. This Revolution X powertrain is hooked to a six-speed transmission.With a low 25-inch seat and mid-controls, the Street 750 is built for urban ability, and will cater to the entry-level rider likely more than the 883 Sportster. The Street 750 will be offered around $7500, making it even more appealing to many during the tough economic times.Attached above is a photo gallery of 2014 Harley-Davidson Sport 750.

This week, in the first segment Editor Don Williams talks to us about the new Kawasaki Versys 650 LT. It’s the middleweight ADV style machine that uses the same 650 parallel twin motor as the Ninja 650, so it’s an excellent performer in a user-friendly, good looking package.
In the second segment, I chat with one of my dearest industry friends—now retired Honda PR executive, Jon Seidel. Jon’s fascinating career spans some 30 years with Big Red, and gave him some great experiences with some incredible machines. I was fortunate enough to be invited on many of the press launches that he organized. His new project is documenting and saving many of the old archives from years gone by—and incidentally, if you have anything that may be of value to the project, please contact us by email at email@example.com and we’ll pass it all on to Jon.
So on that note, from all of us here at Ultimate Motorcycling, we hope you enjoy this episode!
