Powerful Performance

Harley-Davidson® Street™ 500You’ll often find that these legendary bikes are saddled with much heavier engines than the competitor, so you’ll outperform at every turn. The additional weight helps with stability and allows riders to handle tough roads regardless of curves and conditions. Rest assured, you’ll always be riding with unwavering confidence. The heavier the bike, the more difficult it can be to handle. Therefore, beginners who are just starting out should go for a more lightweight model.

At the heart of every Harley-Davidson bike is a beefy powerhouse, like the Milwaukee-Eight® V-Twin engine. You can always count on speedy acceleration and torque that’s specifically tuned for each model’s specialty. Get better heat management and less hot hair on your legs with liquid-cooled engines. You can also enjoy the thunderous peel of an air-cooled monster, if that’s what you prefer. If you’re eager to ride for hours on end, you’ll love the high-displacement touring engines that allow you to perform at full potential each and every time.

Customization Options

As a matter of fact, these bikes are built with customization in mind. The sky’s the limit when it comes to personalizing your Harley bike.
