Harley-Davidson takes aim at newer riders with the 2015 Street XG500. The smallest-displacement Harley in decades, the Street 500 weighs under 500 pounds and has an enticingly low seat height.

Although it’s a budget bike, it has Mikuni EFI, a six-speed transmission, a liquid-cooled SOHC motor, and café racer styling that recalls the legendary XLCR 1000.

Michelin Scorcher 11 tires are mounted on the 15-inch rear and 17-inch front rims. If you don’t like Vivid Black, add $300 for Black Denim or Mysterious Red Sunglo.
