2016 Harley-Davidson® Street® 500Take on the urban grid with 500cc of easy-handling, blacked-out Harley-Davidson® Dark Custom™ style.
A hot night on the town never felt better.
The action goes from stoplight to stoplight, boulevard to back alley. At the center of it all you carve through heat, chaos and gridlock with ease. You get a liquid-cooled Revolution X™ engine loaded with torque and built to thrive in stop and go traffic. A light frame with an easy lock-to-lock handlebar sweep for quick moves. And dark styling details like blacked out pipes, café-style windscreen and fork gaiters to put the edge on the look. Got any plans for the evening?Features May Include:
- Urban Mobility
We were all warned as kids about playing in the street. If you’re the sort who never listened to a word of it, we’ve got your motorcycle. The street is where the action is. The Harley-Davidson Street® series is a line of bikes built with one purpose in mind: to make the most of it. Every inch of the motorcycle has been thought through to meet the demands of navigating the urban landscape. A narrow and nimble profile with a tight 60.4-inch wheelbase keeps the handling razor sharp. Quick moves and turns come easy when you’re threading through whatever modern civilization decides to throw in your path. You have liquid cooling. You have loads of power in the Revolution X™ engine, for when you need to be somewhere else in a hurry. We’re talking about a whole different kind of two-wheeled animal here. One born to take on the traffic-snarled urban jungle.
- Authentic H-D
We built the Harley-Davidson Street® series to be affordable machines for those who’ve gotta work to put gas in the tank and pay the meter maid when you find a place to park. But we did it our own way. That means we did it right. The beautifully formed teardrop fuel tank is Milwaukee steel, just like the fenders. Then we painstakingly finish it with one of our premium paintjobs, and top it with a 3-D chrome badge. Not a decal. Fire up the engine and you hear the pure signature rumble of a Harley-Davidson V-Twin, tuned to perfection in our state-of-the-art sound facility in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin USA. In other words, from the rock-solid belt final drive all the way forward to the Café-racer speed screen derived from deep in our factory custom heritage, there is no mistaking what the bikes in our newest family are. 100% pure Harley-Davidson motorcycle.
- CUSTOM SOUL
Fact: get yourself to a part of town where interesting things are happening and you’ll see some rad custom bikes loaded with dark, aggressive style. Chances are they started life as a Harley-Davidson Street® model. We built our newest line of bikes from the no-nonsense blacked-out wheels up to be the ultimate blank canvas for customizing. Of course, each one is also first and foremost a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, so even fresh off the line it’s a lean, mean and eye-popping machine. Every inch of the up-swept two-into-one exhaust is black. The first time we’ve done that since the ‘70s, when it was a signature part of the famous XLCR Café Racer. You also see a shout-out to renegade ‘70s street bike culture in the minimalist speed screen adorning the blacked out front end. In short, you’ve got a machine loaded with Dark Custom™ attitude.
