2017 Harley-Davidson Street 500

2017 Harley-Davidson Street 500 for sale

With roots in India, the 2017 Harley-Davidson Street 500 is definitely an outlier the Motor Company. The Street 500 is a fairly limited use motorcycle, with odd ergonomics and handling, but an impressive liquid-cooled motor.

Be prepared to stay on city streets, where the Street 500 does shine. Although not especially agile with a wet weight over 500 pounds and 32 degrees of rake, it does manage urban streets well. If you get up to freeway speeds on rough highways, you will want to slow down, as the front end feels vague and the suspension is quickly overwhelmed.
