I am extremely disappointed with the Harley Davidson Street.I had great expectations for this bike and now I am stuck with it.

Harley's are supposed to be fast and loud not quiet and slow. Even the Vance and Hines pipe for the bike makes little difference. The bike sounds like a sewing machine and the V&H pipe just make it sound like a loud sewing machine. This bike is NOT a Harley Davidson.

I am now trying to sell it to get a REAL Harley Davidson.

I've only got 1200 miles on it and am going to loose big money on this bike.Not happy

Had an Experience with Harley Davidson?

You can clearly tell that is NOT a HD, or a Street Glide with just a glance, I think you need to educate yourself on ALL bikes, prior to purchase. Actually prior to riding if you cant clearly see that IS NOT A HARLEY DAVIDSON STREET GLIDE by just the body style. I could stick a Harley Emblem on a mopehead and sell it to you...........

Its the new harley 750 street.Made in India.

Not street glide.. Even a 96 inch harley has only 65 horsepower. That is sad.

Its also sad people associate noise with power.Johnny

The truth about harley's:

They don't Go (fast)

They don't Stop

They don't Turn

And with aftermarket loud pipes, they sound like Volkswagen Bugs from the Sixties.

What do they do well?They cost a lot.

On the other hand, some of the Buell's were pretty decent machines, if you ignore the Harley motor and weight.

I have to disagree with you, the speed so so, but I have slip on's on my Sporty, and they are really loud, and sound great. My engine sounds like a fine tuned Harley............the sound that only a Harley makes. Not sure where you all are getting these bikes from................

What a dumb review.You are complaining about a product you did little research on not being your made up expectations.

Here's a tip, if you want the quintessential Harley, you should've bought a cruiser.Jeeesuus!

First of all both of you who have replied obviously dont get it...americans love harleys because they ARE loud and have a rumble, a vibration reminiscent of a muscle car...if you dont like the way they sound dont listen...*** the world...secondly to the original poster...you really should have done your research first. The street is a 500cc or 750cc import stamped with american badges...the powerplant is an imitation vrod...its marketed for younger generations who cannot afford a sportster (beginners harley) but still want to own a harley....do yourself a favor, if you want to buy a "real" harley then get yourself an early 80's Shovelhead...last of the real Harleys...no AMF, and no german engineered or Porsche made bullsh*t...just my 2 cents...but you better have a decent set of tools...because they're not the magical almighty bmw...they wont fix their selves lol.

The Street you bought...welcome the the 'future' Harley-Davidson Corporation.

The pussification of the American Male continues. Unlike Ghost... I don't suggest buying an oil leaking Shovelhead... Get a Harley with an Evolution motor in it- the later Evos (1994 - 1999).

THIS is the engine that saved Harley. I own an 1996 FXSTC and a 2006 Nightrain with a TC88- they are REAL Harleys because the guy that rides them... actually rides them... a lot.

The guy that rides them does the oil changes and general maint and also repairs the bikes as issues come up (stator, clutch pack, blown head gasket, inner primary seal, etc)... and they do come up. They're Harleys. They can be reasonably reliable AS LONG as you take care of them.

If you want the latest in technology in modern engine design, don't buy a Harley. With that said, there isn't a better sounding or looking bike then a Harley... that's where it starts and ends. Anybody that tells you different, don't know *** about Harleys.

Shovelhead?

oh really.

Streets & Revolution engines sold in US & Canada are manufactured in Kansas City, Missouri. Last time I checked, Missouri was in the United States.

Streets sold outside US & Canada are manufactured in Bawal, India.
